Happy Birthday Shannon, Daren, and Liz !

We have some Birthday post catching up to do and boy, are there some treasures to be seen!

Happy Belated Birthday you EtsyRain members!!!
Shannon - May 14
Daren - May 14
Liz - May 18


Shannon's etsy shop lanningslee has the most wonderful embroidered items for everyone in your family. The quality is unmatched and her reputation flawless.
...and who could resist her model.


Don't miss her Lavender Dryer Bags.








Daren of
dbdesignsit
makes and sells awesome, unique boxes.



This particular design can be customized just for you!
With the busy summer Festival schedule his shop is light on inventory but if you email him through his shop, I bet you could get a custom order in no time at all! Browse his Sold inventory to see some of the things he can do!







Liz from Just Yesterday, custom designs scrapbook albums, pages and notecard sets that are incredible!




Her scrapbook albums are all put together and waiting for you to add your own photos. Talk about making it easy for you...
My favorite has to be these beautiful flower note cards. What woman wouldn't love to receive one of these on a gift or in the mail?









Hope you all had Happy, Happy Birthdays!

Happy birthday, Mara and Lori!


Birthday wishes go out today to two of our EtsyRain members: Mara of Nastrovia Gifts and Lori of One Eyed Collie!

Nastrovia Gifts is a team effort of Mara and her husband, David, who make beautiful wood items, including pens and bottle stoppers. This super elegant pen and pencil set would look great on anyone's office desk!



Lori of One Eyed Collie primarily makes jewelry, but she also makes great business card holders, also suitable for an office desk. Just more proof that when two EtsyRain members share a birthday, they often share other commonalities! :)

Please stop by Nastrovia Gifts and One Eyed Collie today to check out Mara and Lori's shops, and also to wish them both a very happy birthday!
