Mojo Monday and Some Etsy Finds

Hope everyone enjoyed their first week of the new year, and that it's shaping up to be everything you were hoping for.  

Here's this week's Mojo Monday challenge (MOJO172):

And here's another birthday card  I made a few months ago for a friend - I've always loved this color combo.

And here are a couple of Etsy shops I did my Christmas shopping at. makes the CUTEST wool felt items.  This store was the perfect place to buy my yearly ornaments for my two munchkins, including my new little niece - which lucky me, they had one specifically for "Baby's First Christmas".  I was so excited when my package came - these were even better and cuter in person, and the quality was great!

And here's a little something I found for a friend moving to Texas (I thought it was perfect!).  Paloma's Nest is known for her Ring Bearer Bowls, but her seasonal ornaments are just as beautiful.  Oh yeah....and the packaging....just wait, you'll be as equally excited about it, as you are with your purchase.

Okay, I'll leave you all now to shop....enjoy!
