Just Bead It!

I just found a great giveaway going on over at Diana Rambles. She is giving away a set of pink beads from Kristin of My Art and the Mom in Me. As usual, I am skidding in just under the deadline which is at midnight central time today! I have bought from Kristin before and these beads are just so neat. They are made from newspaper--what a great way to recycle! I knew they were made of paper mache, but they still surprised me when they arrived. They are so light! One of the sets I bought had the sweetest little flowers painted on them. They will soon be gracing the tail of a Purple Dotee doll I am going to be making. I'll be sure to post a shot of her when I have made her. So hurry over to Diana's and enter the contest and be sure to check out Kristin's Etsy shop, Paper Mache Beads.

You know, while you were on your blogging hiatus I realized how much I missed reading your blog. Weird, I know, considering I see you almost everyday!

About This Blogger

I am a thirty-something mother of two girls and a boy ranging from preschool to middle school. My husband and I keep working and reworking on our goal of raising our family healthier. Our house is a constant work under construction--adding on and remodeling. We're happy to have bought our property a few years ago, but as any homeowners know, owning a home just adds to your list of projects and chores because there's always improvements to be made and maintenance to be done. On our burgeoning homestead, we have chickens, guineas, a few goats, and our most recent additions-rabbits.

About This Blog

I picked the name Petalz and Finz a couple years ago when I decided to try Etsy out. I wanted to custom make some baby related items and have things for girls and boys. I felt the name incorporated both my kids (at the time) into it--petalz for Ivy and finz for Finn.

I haven't had time to do much of anything with my Etsy for a while, but it's still my in my long term goals. In the mean time, I'm having fun with this blog thing. I've found some creative inspiration through my own posting, but also through many other wonderful blogs out there.
