Two Favorite PurchasesI have been MIA for the past week, so now have tons to do to whip my blog into shape!
First, I hope everyone had the merriest of holidays and will have a happy, healthy, and creative new year! I'm looking forward to all the possibilities that a new year can hold.
Second, but no less important, I'd like to show off two creations I acquired during the holidays. Both are jewelry pieces and are from two of my team members at Inspiration Avenue.
The first I purchased as a gift, and when I saw it I thought twice about giving it because I wanted it for myself! But the angel on my shoulder prevailed over the devil on the other shoulder and I gave it to the intended recipient who was absolutely ecstatic! It is a gorgeous key holder by Mana Moon Studios. I am going to browse her shop again as soon as my bank account recovers from the holidays... Please visit and see for yourself how exquisite are her creations!
I purchased the second item after my holiday shopping was finished so happily decided I would keep this one for myself (it feels so wicked to do that during Christmas). This is from my team member Pat. Pat actually has three Etsy shops (!) : She shows her wonderful photography at Photogenic Gallery; she has a vintage shop 2nd Generation Vintage with all sorts of interesting discoveries; and she sells her handmade jewelry at PatK860 Jewelry Designs, which is where I found this amazing necklace. I love the soft peachy color and the beautiful Asian-looking focal bead. Visit all three of her shops and you will be in for a treat!
There are so many talented members at Inspiration Avenue, each with her own unique creative style! Each member has a blog and at least one Etsy shop ~ visit each one for a truly inspiring experience!
