I've Been Blogged!

A momentus event has happened for Sadie Bloom Designs in the world of Etsy treasuries. A treasury I created has been blogged in the EtsyKids Treasury Team's Blog. Woo-hoo!

What is the EtsyKids Treasury Team, you ask? First off, EtsyKids is a group of talented shop owners on, whose shops primarily sell items for babies, toddlers and kids (everything from frilly hot pink baby boomers to realistic stuffed felt banana toys). EtsyKids Treasury Team is a small group of those shop owners who create beautiful, themed treasuries on behalf of EtsyKids. A treasury, on Etsy, is like a collage of items from different shops, usually with a common theme or color; these treasuries are available for everyone to see. They're also a way of promoting shops, items or teams, like EtsyKids.

So that's your Etsy treasury lesson for the day. Sit back, click on the link and enjoy a little SoCal beach time...

A Rose is A Rose...

It's no secret I love flowers, especially roses. My husband and I came across some extraordinary ones on a trip last May to the Napa Valley. Here are a few shots taken at The Harvest Inn, St. Helena, and The Napa River Inn, Napa. Now these provided plenty of inspiration!

Their roses were gigantic! Your's truly with a beautiful peach one.

Hibiscus Heaven

One of my favorite things in our backyard is a 15-foot tall hibiscus bush. It blooms beautiful large, hot pink hibiscus flowers for a good part of the year. Right now the bush is in full bloom, in an explosion of pink. Plenty of inspiration for new hot pink creations!
