Happy birthday, Mollie!


Happy birthday wishes go out today to Mollie of Mollie Fabric! Mollie makes a variety of items for her Etsy shop, and describes herself as "a digital artist and traditional craftswoman from the Great Northwest!"

Of course, what Mollie may be best known for is her posters of photographs of meat in the shape of words. When my youngest sister's birthday rolled around, and I told her I'd be in Texas just before her birthday, she told me that she wanted beef for her birthday. I immediately thought of Mollie's meat posters, and guess what my sister got for her birthday? :)

So stop by Mollie Fabric today and check out the meat poster and other items in her shop, and wish Mollie a happy birthday while you're there!

Happy birthday, Halina!


Many happy birthday wishes today go out to Halina, of HalinaB Designs. Halina makes lovely jewelry for women, as well as strong, masculine pieces for men, or for anyone who wants a more unisex jewelry piece.

Personally, I'm a big fan of both the metalwork and the beads on this bracelet, but no matter what sort of jewelry you're looking for, Halina has many options--bracelets, earrings, and necklaces. She also makes flowers that don't wilt or die from metal and beads--super cute! So stop by HalinaB Designs today and wish Halina a wonderful birthday!

Happy birthday, Laura!


Please join EtsyRain in wishing Laura of LAS Designs a very happy birthday! Laura makes a variety of clay items, including plates, bowls, banks, and, my personal favorite, mugs. I have one of Laura's spiky mugs (with some serious spikiness) at home, and I love it! The handle is nice and roomy, and it works well as a mug for hot or cold beverages.

So check out Laura's shop and wish her a happy birthday. She's running birthday week sales from the 13th through the 17th of October, so you can get an amazing deal in honor of her birthday!

Happy birthday, Rosalie!


It took me several minutes to decide which Shower Art was going on this post. One reason was because I can't find the one I wanted to use. The other reason is that there's always so many new and funny pieces of Shower Art in Rosalie's shop, Ugly Baby, that it's hard to pick just one.

So in honor of Rosalie's birthday, go to Ugly Baby, pick your favorite Shower Art, and BUY it! Carrie wants you to. And so do I. :) But seriously, join me in wishing Rosalie a very happy birthday, and check out her shop while you're at it. And tell her she needs more zombies in her Shower Art, because who doesn't want zombies in their shower?!
