Help Save the Environment!!

Save the environment and your hands by using this reusable, washable coffee sleeve!! I made this for the CCCOE September Challenge. To enter the crafter/artist has to create something in an alternative media (working with something other then what they are comfortable with). Since I'm a jewelry maker, sewing is definitely out of my comfort zone. Although, I did take a quilting class in the past and I used the skills I learned there to make this:

CCCOE September Challenge - Voting begins!!

All the entries on the "alternative media” are in! We need your vote on the best one! The California Crafters Club of Etsy (CCCOE) challenged its members in September, see a collage of the entries below.

The meaning of "alternative media" for this challenge required the crafter/artist to create something outside their comfort zone, i.e. working with something other then what they are comfortable with.

One lucky voter will receive a pair of peace cranes from the shop of localcolorist. Looky here Voter Prize
Voting ends Saturday October 6 at midnight. Check Sunday in the forums for the winning entry and the lucky voter!

Tag! I'm it!

I've been out on vacation and came back to find I've been tagged, not once, but twice!! First by Shell Mitchell and then by Jev Vecc - Inspired by Color.

So my duty is to tell you six things about myself, then tag six others to do the same. Hmm... Let's see...

1. I just came back from Hawaii !!! It was great, we went scuba diving and saw a shark!!!
2. I'm a triathlete and my favorite part is the swim.
3. I'm a city girl living in a beach town. I'm out of my normal environment and I'm loving it!
4. I used to make fun of people who wear winter coats during California winters, but now I am one of them. :)
5. I love camping, ghost stories, and fire roasted marshmallows.
6. Fall is my favorite season. I love the big oak leaves and I'm sad that oak trees don't grow near me anymore. :(

Here are the six people I tagged. Please check out their awesome blogs! I will definitely be checking later to learn about their six things!
