I'm back!

I haven't been around for a while...getting ready for the end of the school year, trying to keep up with Etsy, not to mention 3 know how it goes.

One of the joys of Etsy is the ability to trade with other artisans. It's exciting to sell your creations for money, but I personally think it's more fun to trade for other cool stuff. I have traded for an afghan and a bowl, and then a few weeks ago, another jewelry artist contacted me about trading. My first thought was, "Why would I want to trade jewelry for jewelry? I could just make it myself!" But I quickly changed my mind when I saw her shop! Ositarose makes the most gorgeous earrings. And they're all under $20! She has a very romantic style- colorful, sparkly, and feminine.

Take a look at the beauties I got:

These are the "Pixie Garden" earrings. Aren't they great?

And these are "Turquoise Vintage Petite". Pretty, right??

She even sent me another free pair as a gift. I thought that was so sweet of her! They all came in dainty little organza bags, and all of them are very well-made. If you get a chance, please visit her shop!


  1. Oh those Pixie Garden earrings are gorgeous!

  2. I haven't traded in SOOOO long, you've totally put me in the mood! love your blog - must follow you! come on over and visit me sometime:

  3. Trading is how I got most of my Christmas presents in 2008. It was fun! As it got late in November I started hitting the trade Chats.

    It was fun.
