Matching Etsy Banner & Shop Avatar!


I created these to match the blog background but they can be used seperately. You would get the one-of-a-kind etsy banner for your etsy shop and the matching etsy avatar for your shop profile. Visit my etsy shop to purchase! Or, email me directly. This "Frenchy" set will sell for $5.! I am running a special just in time for you to brand your etsy shop for the new year!
Please note:
The banner and avatar will be emailed to you without my name on them. (My name is on there for my own purposes. Yours will not have text on the design...unless you prefer.) They will be emailed in the etsy size requirements. Only the font and/or font color can be changed. This is a one-of-a-kind design...so no one else will have your banner on etsy!
If you have any questions just convo me at etsy or email me directly.
Happy New Year,
Roxi

Happy Happy Joy Joy!

Here's a new note pad holder I made the other day. I used some vintage items in this little creation so of course I'm loving it! It feels good to give a new use to items I already have on hand.

Expressions of Gratitude


My friend, Debbie Overton, is having a blog party for her 50th birthday bash! I meet her 4 - 5 years ago, and although we have yet to meet in person I am grateful for her friendship and happy for every success she achieves with her bliss. Happy Birthday Debbie!

So, in honor of Debbie's B-day I will be giving away 2 'party favors'!

One prize is my blog background! I created it just yesterday. I will install it onto your blog (with blogger) if you need the help and/or give you instructions if needed! The second is, a new note card I just recently created using one of Debbie's vintage papers! I will post a pic soon but it is up on my web site if you can't wait. ;)



All you need to do is leave me a post here. Please mention in your post if you prefer the blog background or the note card. I will pick the 2 winners on Debbie's birthday!

ps...Send me an email if an email address is not listed on your blog so I can contact the winners.
