...i'm working on several new items for the store, and have just added one new fun item, which i am LOVING for fall!! it's a set of fun and whimsical tattered leaves. can be used behind chipboard trees, or just by themselves on your layouts and projects! aren't they adorable?? i am about to use these on some of my own work. they are just too cute!!!

want them in diff. colors?? no prob! just let me know what you want, and i'll be glad to make them for you!

run, don't walk, over to the shop where these little beauties, among others, are hanging out.

want a FREE set?? (and maybe a set of shiny posies, too?? i'll throw in a couple of extra items to the winner, i promise!) do this by Wednesday, September 9th:

leave a comment under this posting telling me at least one of the following things:

i am a follower on your blog (old or new friends...doesn't matter!).

i have blogged about your handmade goodies (please link to my etsy shop directly).

i have added you as a favorite seller on etsy.

each of these things is worth 1 entry. that's all 3 things and get 3 entries into the drawing!!

thanks for your support of handmade, girlies!! i know i can count you in on this, right??

...even on a bad day, i know i am blessed. hormonal overload, i guess. today was kind of a bad day. i need to make amends with my husband and babies. i hate that it's the people we love the most that we end up being ugly to most of the time.

almost Thursday!!

this is for the latest challenge over at the amazing Diana's Sketchy Thursdays!! she always has a GREAT sketch to guide you in your creativity!

i used some photos of us w/ our new "chalkboard" glasses we got from World Market. i LOVE that store. last time i was there, i could have camped overnight...must've been in there for like 3 hrs. good news---it was good detox for me...i must've "sampled" their detox tea to the tune of about ten

anyway, playing with these glasses was wildly entertaining (couldn't have had anything to do with what we were drinking from inside of them, right??)


love, Tonia

as promised, i am adding items to my etsy shop!

ch-ch-check it out, ya'll!

and don't forget that if you order ANYTHING from me by this Friday night at midnight, it's free shippin!!!

thanks a bunch!


gimme gimme gimme gimme....

j/k...this is not about's about GIVING! we all know it's better to give than receive, but here is a chance to do a bit of both. let's do it.

The first five people to respond to this post
will get something made by me, especially for you.
This offer does have some restrictions and limitations:

1- I make no guarantees that you will like what I make but I hope you will.

2- What I create will be just for you.

3-They say I have a year to get it to you. But I promise it will NOT take that long.

4- You have no clue what it's going to be. It’s a surprise to both of us at this point.

The catch? You must repost this on your blog and
offer the same to the first 5 people who do the same on your blog.

So the first five people who post, and are willing to pass it along,
will get a handmade gift in the mail from me.

When you get it, make sure you post a pic on your blog!
