Introducing ZEMPHIRA...another Owl Member

As you know I've been slowly (very slowly) introducing the members of the Etsy Owls. This time I'm introducing Zemphira....

Zemphira's shop is super fun and UNIQUE. I actually just had Zemphira custom make me an Owl Tree Topper. I'm super excited about it. The fun thing about it is its also a puppet!!!! Not to mention he is super cute. Here he; is isn't he cuuuuuuutttttte?

If you are in love with this adorable tree topper you can buy one too!!!! She has one more left (w/ this pattern). I'm sure she would make more :).

What I like most about Zemphira's store is her selection of things made out of the cutest fabric you have ever seen... Like this really cool apron!!!

Seriously, I think everyone needs to stop by Zemphira's shop and check her items out. They are the coolest!!!!

Next up Etsy Owl AmyPanda

I'm happy to introduce to you...Ms. AmyPanda!!!! Amypanda is an EtsyOwl. I love visiting her shop because it makes me smile. Her pictures are so hilarious. She has these adorable little stuffie badges and then in her pics she has these little people next to them! They are so funny! I love them. They look like some crazy art you would find in an offthewall gallery.

Amy does a great job because once you see her pictures you will know it when you come across it again, whether its in a treasury, ad, or gift guide, you will know its made by AmyPanda.

She also did some amazing custom work for me. She was super nice and really great to work with on creating a new product. She made me 2 adorable (extremely well made) ornaments! Here they are...

Thank you AmyPanda for making me smile!!!

Who are the Owls Anyways??? StripeyMonkey

I often refer to my Etsy Team, the EtsyOwls, but I realize that I have never introduced any of the members. So I decided it would be fun that every so often I will pick one member and write a little bit about them and show off my favorite item that they have in their Etsy store, and the first one up is.....


Stripey has a really fantastic shop. Stripey lives in the UK. I love looking at Stripey's shop because her pictures are fantastic. They have that fun artsy feel to them. Her designs are creative and one of a kind! I bet with such great pictures she actually gets in to a lot of treasuries! At least I hope so because she really deserves its.

My favorite item in Stripey's store is her Silver Kully Grunge Bracelet. Stripey actually made this item for one of the EtsyOwls team challenges for Halloween. She won that you can see why!

Stripeys work is amazing so I wanted to share it with the world. I hope everyone gets a chance to hop on over to her store and check out her amazing items!!!!

Let's Find a Cure- Breast Cancer Awareness - Handmade Beaded Necklace

For Breast Cancer Awareness the EtsyOwls are creating one of a kind themed items. We are all donating 100% of the funds from each sale to the Breast Cancer Awareness Fund.

Here is my submission

This handmade necklace represents those women who have survived or are fighting breast cancer. These women are amazing and deserve to be recognized as strong powerful women. The 100% of the proceeds from this sale will go directly to the Breast Care Foundation. Every cent of this order will go to help find a cure.

This necklace is 21 inches long. The pendant has Rosie the Riveter standing proud with the words "I Survived" at the top, and "Never Give Up" at the bottom. By wearing this necklace you are not only donating funds, but are raising awareness for the disease. Let's work together to help find a cure. The length of this necklace can be changed upon request. The pendant is a full color plastic pendant. The pendant has a clear protective coating over it.

This necklace also comes in a gift box.

Don't forget to check out all of the submissions at the OfftheWall Etsy Shop

Also, Don't forget 100% of every Breast Cancer Themed item goes directly to charity!!!!!!
