Etsy Friday... It's such a tradition with some bloggers, and I've been thinking for awhile of doing something special for Fridays. The only problem is that half the time I'm not even aware of what day of the week it is (and to think that I used to laugh at my husband when he lost track). Now that I don't have to go to work every day, it doesn't really matter what day it is! What a nice feeling.

Anyway, I've decided that my take on Etsy Friday will be to feature something from the shops of the other Etsy sellers who purchase from me! I've met some really wonderful people on Etsy, and I'm always thrilled when another seller chooses to purchase my cards and tags to use with their own creations.

So here goes... some my favorites from the shops of my customers! :-)

Amy, of ovenfriedbeads, creates some of the prettiest polymer clay beads I've ever seen. Coincidentally, a friend of mine sent me a link to this necklace just a couple of days after Amy bought some of my artwork!

Jodi, of BeadworxAZ, purchased a HUGE batch of mini notecards and tags. And then she asked me if I would be interested in a trade for some of her gorgeous lampwork beads. The result? I received some of the most gorgeous lampwork beads I've ever seen. It took me two days to pick them from their website. Jodi and her husband both create lampwork beads, and the bead you see here is Mark's. Jodi also makes these precious little fairy doors, amulet bags, and other things. I sure hope they run out of tags soon...

I'm not much of a knitter, my skills being limited to going back and forth in a straight line, but if I were I'd sure want some of Aija's stitch markers! zeromarkers are made with natural stones and freshwater pearls, and they're pretty enough to be jewelry. My favorite thing in Aija's shop right now is this roving in those beautiful shades of blue and purple. Wow!

Lolavalentinos' shop is filled with all kinds of hairclips, supplies, drawer sachets, and other fun stuff, but I really like the simplicity of these sterling silver earrings.
