Sunny Sunday and Crafty Links

Today is a beautifully sunny fall day. Cool, with a bit of a breeze. And just the right temperature – neither heat nor air conditioner are needed.

Being in the process of building my shop on Amazon Handmade has made me want to evaluate my Etsy shops. Take a critical look at things and make some improvements. Look hard at jewelry that’s been in the shop a while. Give things a makeover where needed, update photos, change tags, freshen up. Here’s an example of a re-do.

Pink Flower Earrings

Earring rework – I love the new combination created from the two pair of earrings on the left.

And here’s whats going on with some of my smart and crafty friends:

Art Bead Scene
Julie shares a beautiful and contemplative post with us – and asks you to give yourself permission to create. 

Floating Diamond Pattern
Connie’s added a new free pattern that will be suitable for any season just by changing up the colors. Make a Halloween or Christmas ornament, or use the design for a special card. Since it is whole cross-stitch only, it will be a quick stitch.
