Suebee's Sensory Blankets

I love finding the useful items on Etsy, those items that work to make the lives of others better in their greatest time of need. The Etsy Shop Suebeebuzz has reached out to the Etsy public in just that way in creating Obies - sensory enhancing blankets that are perfect for soothing babies, helping children explore the world of colors, and for comforting those close to us with Alzheimer’s. Suebee's Obies are indeed the product that can reach so many people! I hope that you will all stop by her shop to check out all of her great products!

A New Craft Tool Available from radrb8vicki!

In the wonderful world of Etsy, I have had the opportunity to meet a number of wonderful people, but radrb8vicki has been a great source of inspiration and awe! She makes paper beads and items out of them like purses, which in their own right are magnificent. But what is most amazing is the new tool that she has created! Radrb8vicki has made a new craft tool for making those beautiful beads that we all adore in her shop! Radrb8vicki hopes that teachers will soon adopt her tool into their classrooms so that art can reach the lives of more students, more kids who could just use a little relaxation. Radrb8vicki has melted my heart and I hope that you stop by to see the wonderful paper bead maker!

The Unexpected

Hello everyone! I hope your week has been a good one!

Well the unexpected just keeps popping up in my life these days. From a computer virus that put a damper on my business (ArtWhims) as I was unable to list new items or check email for 5 days to school and life in general, it has been a year of one thing after the other. These experiences have definitely made me a stronger person, and I have learned much from them! I cannot wait to enter the new year a little wiser and a little more prepared for these unexpected events!

Have a great day everyone!
