This Virgo Rules Mercury!

You Should Rule Mercury

Close to sun, Mercury has very long days - and is rarely visible to the rest of the solar system.

You are perfect to rule Mercury, because you live for the present - and can truly enjoy a day that goes on forever.

Like Mercury, you are quick and elusive. Your wit is outstanding, and you can win any verbal sparring match.

Some people see you as superficial, but in truth, you just play many roles and have many interests.

A great manipulator, you usually get what you want from people. And they're happy to give it to you.

My Mind Is Orange! What About You?

Your Mind is Orange

Of all the mind types, yours is the quickest.

You are usually thinking a mile a minute, and you could be thinking about anything at all.

Your thoughts are often scattered and random - but they're also a lot of fun!

You tend to spend a lot of time thinking about esoteric subjects, the meaning of life, and pop culture.

Wild Things!

I felt it was time to pay tribute to some of the remarkable jewelry makers in my EtsyBEAD group. The current challenge is Wild Things, so here we go! ROAR!

My first find in the ebtw search was this beautiful necklace by DeLavande. It reminds me of a zebra!!

When I first saw these earrings, I thought to myself, "Wow, those are so cool!" They are called "Giraffe Print Earrings" and they were created by the talented cassowaryjewelry.

This bracelet from BrokenTeepeeDesigns reminds of some colorful Senegalese from Africa. The bracelet has Grey Moonstone and Carnelian.

What wild set would be complete without Tiger's Eye. Check out this set by ljjnjm. This is truly a gorgeous set, including Tiger's Eye and Everlasting Shells.

And representing all wild rivers is this pendant from jaelsjewels. This piece is absolutely colorful and beautiful.

Fantazya's 2009 Diary Project

If you haven't gotten in on this yet, you need to hurry up as the deadline is July 1. I have now been included in two books done by Etsy Sellers and I have to say that to date, this is the coolest project yet. I love browsing shops, as you all know, and now there is a diary with a shop a day. I am so excited. I went ahead and requested September 13, because that is my birthday. I also created my page, but I'm not sure this is correct yet.

If you would like more information, please go here and get the details.

Origami Barn

A friend of mine just sent me these pictures of her 10 year olds "Origami Barn". I love it, all the animals are Origami and she built it using only paper, popsicles, and hot glue. Behind the barn are two hoses, one for the horses and one for the pigs.

Feeling A Little Blue

Since I am feeling a little under the weather, I decided to make the topic "Feeling A Little Blue".

I love this antiqued brass, engraved locket from mayideas. It's called "Feeling Blue Necklace". The blue flowers just seem to set off the rest of the necklace.

Whimsicalwants does it again with another cute clothes pin doll. This is the cutest "Feeling Blue" item and check out the details.

Is this the prettiest "Get Well Soon Handmade Greeting Card"? I love the colors that CardMaven chose for this card. It just lifts your spirits.

Just what you need to organize your purse from needapocket3. This beautiful "Feeling Blue Pocket Set" is not only pretty to look at but functional for carrying things in your purse, backpack, or tote.

If I had this "Feeling Blue Patchwork Freeform Beanie" from angihats, I would be wearing right now!
