Happy belated birthday, Roxanne!


Extra special belated birthday wishes go out to Roxanne of Homespun Alpacas, who had her birthday on Saturday (which I completely forgot to post about)! Roxanne has a farm with a herd of 14 alpacas, and creates handmade items from the fiber produced by the alpacas. She offers fiber at several stages: loose fiber, yarn, and finished products.

So whether you're looking to make something from alpaca fiber or to purchase something already completed, Roxanne of Homespun Alpacas has you covered! Stop by her shop to wish her a belated happy birthday and check out what she has to offer!

Happy birthday, Beth and Erin!


EtsyRain again celebrates two members with birthdays today! First we have Beth of WireTree. Beth is one of the original members of EtsyRain, and it has been wonderful to watch her shop change and grow over time. She makes a variety of jewelry items, but perhaps her most notable items are her hand stamped pendants and tags, particularly these focal point birth pendants.


Our second EtsyRain birthday today is Erin of Red Boots Design. Erin screenprints her original designs onto clothing. Many of her designs are bike related, but she also has a variety of other designs.

So stop by Wire Tree and Red Boots Design today to wish Beth and Erin very happy birthdays. While you're there, check out the other items they both have in their shops!

Happy birthday, Ryan and Kristi!


Happy birthday wishes go out today to Ryan of Umbilicus Designs. Ryan makes sterling and fine silver jewelry that is inspired by and created from organic objects. She has a variety of one of a kind pieces of jewelry to fit many budgets and tastes!

Stop by Umbilicus Designs today to wish Ryan a very happy birthday, and also to check out her great jewelry items!


Today we also celebrate Kristi's birthday, of DreamSome Designs. Kristi makes fine silver jewelry, with a variety of objects as her inspirations. I'm always intrigued when two of our EtsyRain members share a birthday, and when they work in similar media, it's great to see how their shared birthday gives them similarities, but their unique personalities lend themselves to distinctive qualities in their work.

Be sure to stop by DreamSome Designs today to wish Kristi a happy birthday, and check out her gorgeous jewelry!
