Sellers description of item. I love making gingerbread for Christmas, but it never lasts long enough, so, I've decided to make some gingerbread-style decorations, so they will last for years and I won't have any guilt about eating the decorations.
This is a little gingerbread house, made from gingery felt. There is a hand stitched door and window, in white embroidery thread, to look iced, and a red ribbon for hanging. This is also filled with toy filling.
It measures approximately 4" High (excluding ribbon) and 3.5" Wide
Made with love, by me, in Wales.
Other decorations aviable in my shop, as well as stockings

Here's a little about myself:I always enjoyed crafts, even at a young age. When I started crocheting I couldn't stop and kept trying crocheting different things but still couldn't quite capture the final product. It was then I decided to take a class and after the teacher told me how even my stitches were, I crocheted and crocheted. I still can't remember when I started crocheting with thread but I know this is my favorite yarn to use.I sold my ornaments at craft fairs for years and did very well. I've been crocheting over 30 years now and still love creating new items.

I have been a photographer for over 25 years and have shown my photographs in shows all over the world. I have even won an occasional prize. I travel a lot and get an opportunity to capture images world wide. Recently I have started to explored mixed media collage and making miniature art which are sold as ACEO ( art cards the size of baseball trading cards that people collect). In addition , I have started to make wearable art from my photographs and vintage images in the form of recycled game tile pendants.In real life I am a happy wife and mother. In my professional life I am a licensed marriage and family therapist and I have a private practice. I specialize in children and adults who have ADHD.
I started making photographic pendants necklaces this year because I love to wear art and thought others might enjoy it too. Each pendant is handmade by me. I started with a recycled rummy-o game tile, paint, reduce down a photograph, seal, add Swarovski crystals and a silver plated bail, and sign and date the back.Just lmk which photos you would like and I will send them to you.
I am excited to say that LD Photography will be hosting next months giveaway which will be announced december 1 st. If you would like to visit her shop please click here http://www.etsy.com/shop/LDphotography

My name is Şebnem Ergün, I live in Istanbul- the magical city I design decorative handpainted stone and porcelaine objects which is blended with my love , passion and spirit!
I have a 8 months old - kitty son Pasha, sometimes my lovely cat also gives me the inspiration for my creations! I love animals, nature, sea, walking under the rain, feeding sea gulls...I am also interested meditation and spiritual healing methods.
Painting was my biggest passion in my childhood. I had loved to make charcoal drawings and oil paintings until I started the university. Even though my inner dream was studying the fine arts; I chose Business Administration that was “the shining star” branch of those years. After I graduated from university in my twenty, I was thrown into the business life. I have worked in various management positions at stressfull enviroment with high-tempo for over 15 years. During that time period, unfortunately I was far away my painting passion. In 2008, I realized the business atmosphere of Plazas really exhausted me, in July 2008 I decided to rest for a while to refresh myself and I quit my job with a radical desicion!
In my refreshment period; I embraced my painting passion again by listening to my heart..Wise, silent Stones have awaken my inner MUSE! With the inspiration I take from nature, I have started to revive their spirits with my colorful brush strokes…
Also I am painting porcelains with onglaze porcelain painting technique. I attended Porcelain Painting and Decoration art course at Caferaga Medresesi. (Traditional Turkish Art school which was built 450 years ago by Sinan the Architect beside the famous Hagia Sofia.) I am still working on traditional Turkish tile art and free-style painting techniques on porcelain and tiles... Besides; herefrom I would like to thank my sister Sule who accompany me on porcelain painting art; some of her porcelain objects are also listed in my shop.
May each of you have the opportunities to listen to your heart and awake your inner passion which brings the real joy that already lies deep in your soul; like I did
To God, I am thankful for my artistic talent; I will continue painting and coloring my creations with the inspiration I take from the whole universe.
Greetings from Istanbul! Shebbodesign.

Besides crafting, I also enjoy hiking (it’s Switzerland ’s national sport, lol), biking, reading a good book, and hanging out with friends.
I’ve always had an affinity for the arts+crafts, starting from when I was little. I would doodle horses on paper, the wall, anywhere I could. My mother would crochet fancy dresses for my Barbie dolls, I loved them! When I eventually re-discovered crocheting in Los Angeles , I found many more crafts that I liked, including sewing and paper crafting. Starting an online business provided a way for me to share what I’ve made and help with the costs of obtaining supplies to continue to craft."

1) Skirts: we decided on 2 different tulles for the skirts, and I took 2 yards of each. I used this method to make them http://thatgirlscrafty.blogspot.com/2009/09/tutorial-line-skirt-with-elastic-waist.html but instead of using a normal measurment for the width I made them like 3 times wider than that to create a more poofy skirt. I did the same measurements for each layer of tulle, and sewed them together at the top. Then I fooled the rest of the steps in the tut mentioned above. If you would like a tut for a no sew tutu this is a good one http://www.flickr.com/photos/ambrosialove/522118984/

My name is Kev and I'm one of the minority, the elusive Etsy male! I live in Yorkshire, UK with my wife and two young boys. My shop is called Dig The Earth, and I produce a range of eco-friendly greetings cards. All my cards are made from 100% recycled stock and come with fully biodegradable protective corn-starch 'cello wraps' – no harmful plastic involved at all! I also produce a range of hand drawn mirror frames. These are all shop bought frames that are made unique and hopefully a lot more desirable with my illustrations! I seem to spend a fair chunk of my time taking product photographs of my wife's fantastic handmade jewellery (you can check out some of my work in her Etsy shop: RubySpiritDesigns), but my 'proper job' is running the artwork studio for a design agency. I write a weekly blog for a UK based handmade site: www.coriandr.com and also post daily on my own handmade inspirational products blog: http://ilovehandmadeblog.blogspot.com – which aims to promote beautiful handmade products from around the world!

I love cooking with my girls and they love it too. So I have compiled a few of our favorite fall time recipies for you to try with your kids.
Easy Caramel Corn
3 quarts popping corn
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup corn syrup
1 stick of butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
Put popcorn in a heavy paper bag. Melt butter in a saucepan and mix together sugar, syrup, and salt. Add 1/2 teaspoon baking soda and stir well. Pour into paper bag and stir with a wooden spoon.
Put bag in microwave and cook on high for 1 1/2 minutes. Take out and shake well. Cook for another 1 1/2 minutes. Shake bag again and pour into a large container. Serve in paper baggies that kids can decorate.
3 cups sugar
1 cup oil
2 cups pumpkin
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon allspice
1 cup pecans, chopped
Mix together sugar, oil, eggs, pumpkin, and vanilla in a large bowl. Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl, add to pumpkin mixture, and stir well. Then add nuts. Bake in 2 loaf pans or coffee cans in a 350F degree oven for 1 hour 10 minutes.
12 apples (plus 12 popsicle sticks)
4 14-ounce packages of caramels
8 tablespoons heavy cream
Rinse apples, pat dry, and remove apple stems and insert a popsicle stick into stem of each apple. Combine the cream and caramels in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir constantly until caramel is melted and smooth. Dip the apples into the caramel until completely covered. Let the extra caramel drip back into the saucepan. Roll in crushed nuts.
Line a baking sheet with waxed paper. Place apples upside down on waxed paper and refrigerate.

Who dosen't love a nice bubble bath from time to time?? Check out this weeks seller she has great products and and even better prices!!
My name is Charlene, I live in a small town of Balfour, BC and I’m a wife and a mother of two great children who swim all year and they compete in the summer all over the Kootenays.
How Kootenay Bath Products came to be is that I ended up spending too much money on bubble baths and body butters from other store, that in 2007” I started making my own bath products. I decided to sell on line with Ebay and Etsy and that has been doing very well for me, I’ve shipped all over the world and alot of repeat customers. I do sell in some local stores here in Balfour at Gift and Gill as well as Nelson at the Kootenay Co-op and Mermaid Gallery. This summer started selling my products at Figments in Kaslo and at The Lady in the Tub Bed and Bath Boutique in Salmon Arm. Just recently a spa in Iqaluit, Nunavut (Canada) started selling my whipped body butters.
My packaging is nothing fancy, it’s all about what is inside. I make it affordable, because once you try them you’ll be back for more.
One question would you rather pay for packaging or the product? I personally would pay for a great product rather than their labels and a not so great product. If you spend $25.00 or more you will receive a free gift ( $8.00 value)
If you would like to visit her shop click here www.kootenaybathproducts.etsy.com and be sweet retweet so others can learn about her shop and products as well.

This is one of my favorite things to make. They are so handy and versitile, and they make great gifts as everyone needs one of these at one point.
You will need about 1/2 yard of fabric, matching thread, velcro, and sewing machine.
1) Cut 2 pieces of fabric into a rectangle, and sew right sides together leaving a small hole.
2) Turn the fabric right side out.
3)Stitch up the hole, you may want to stitch all the way around for extra durability.
4) Mark your spot for your velcro by laying your rectangle flat and folding the top up and the bottom down to where they overlap.
5) Pin your velcro in place and stitch using a small zigzag stitch all the way around.
6) Now fold the bottom up and stitch up the sides and Voila you are all done!!
As always If you've made something from any of my tuts I would love to post a picture. You can send it to me at email@example.com and I will blog about you!!

I have put up a few new items for sale, and I thought I'd show them off here. Ofcourse with fall and winter coming there will be more items to follow. These are the items I have recently finished. I am a huge fan of halloween, and I will be adding more halloweenish (is that even a word?) items soon. The items pictured are some of my newest iron on appliques. The ghost and jack o lantern come in a set, and the pieces come seperatley so they can be placed how ever. I use these all the time for my kids older shirts and dresses, even pants, they're great for covering up holes, and stains, and they are fun and easy to use. I have a lot more listed in my shop feel free to visit me there. www.BellesMademoiselles.etsy.com
