The Perfect Collar

As any of you who know me or follow my blog know, we have a Boston Terrier named Pickle:

I was browsing on Etsy this morning, and, by chance, I found the most perfect collar ever:

Forget the fact that I JUST got both Marley and Pickle new matching collars a week ago, Chad and I agreed this was just too good to pass up. It was his size and everything! I got it from California Collars. They even have a Boston Terrier on their avatar. It was collar fate.

So much to catch up on!

I have been caught up in getting my new Etsy shop going that my poor blog has been neglected! You will start seeing a lot more posting from now on.

First, Fisher's 4 month photo....he turned 4 months two weeks ago, but I still have to share this toothy picture!

Two teeth already, can you believe it?! He likes to show them off. He is such a fun baby... belly laughs like crazy, smiles at everyone he meets, and loves to play. He has started rolling over from his tummy to his back, and can almost sit up by himself. And the drooling and spit bubbles....oh my!

Now, about my Etsy shop....I wanted to really get serious about my shop now that I have finally found my little niche with the stuff I like to make. My new shop is called Just My One Cent, and the address is Now everything is uniform with my blog, even the colors I use in my header and on my packaging. I even went digital for about an hour to make my header from the one I use here. I'm concentrating on handmade embellishments for scrapbooking, papercrafting, and gift wrapping, as well as handmade brooches and rings.

I have also created a Facebook Fan Page, and I have a Flickr Photostream of all my items.

Here is a sampling of what you'll find:

And here is my packaging:

There in the background of all my photos is one of my nre toys from Christmas...a vintage Smith Corona Classic 12 typewriter! I've wanted an old typrwriter for SO long. It came from Etsy, of course!

I'm still working on getting everything listed in my shop, but lots more is on the way! Since I've been spending SO MUCH time on Etsy, I've come across some really awesome stuff, so I've decided Fridays are going to be Etsy Favorites posts. I'm also going to update on things to come, what I'm making as well as some tutorials I have in the works. And of course photos of little Man, too.

Have a great day, everyone!
