New banner,new shawl pin and valentines candy

Today we finally changed the banner for our Etsy shop. We have been using the same one since we started the shop in May of '06. Our pictures were crappier back then and the items we had featured aren't particularly big sellers now. So it was time for a change. I'm pretty happy with this new design. It has a nice fresh spring feel to it. Unfortuantely Shipwrecked Beads (my main source for the glass beads)seems to be out of those exact same color green glass leaves that are on the pink flower earrings in the banner but I've got something close that I'll be able to use in the future.

I just listed today this new shawl pin design. It may look familiar because it is a variation on my Dancing Swirls Sterling Silver Earrings. This is the Dancing Swirls Light Weight Aluminum Shawl Pin

On to the cute kids...
Iraqi voter or sticky nasty blue candy eater?

Wild sugar high.
Henry methodically examines his Valentine's Day booty from the school party yesterday while Max sits back and takes it all in.Luckily for me they have more of an interest in the disgusting junky candy than the chocolates. So I got the chocolate.

Doesn't that drive you nuts when you try to get more beads, and you can't find them... gah!!

Cute banner, and I'm just at awe when you come up with new designs.. you rock woman!

Did you ever do anything with that dish?

Thanks for the compliments!
Yeah I do hate the bead thing. Now I have to take a bunch of new pictures.
No, the dish remains by the sink with soap that's too big for it in it and falling over all the time.

That wild sugar high picture is hilarious. The pin is beautiful. Makes me want to wear a shawl! :)

Maybe the bowl would be cool with pine cones and natural things in it.
