Marshmellows anyone???

*not my photo but I wish it were...

Tomorrow, bright & early Miles (scrub), Elsie (dog) & I are loading up into our funky borrowed Vanagon. For the first time in Littleput.etsy history I am taking a vacation, no computer, no packing slips & NO CONVOS :O) I can't be gone long (and I do have to make a few scrabble journals on the way) but even 36 hours without my lap top will be a wonderous thing. I will be posting all about it when I return, hopefully with some photos as cool as the one above.

Happy Monday! Hold down the fort for me wouldja?

Lovely Leah of has made me my new favorite thing, a huge mobile in orange, red & shades of blue. This photo is of Leah installing it in my back yard. Now I can watch it spin and twist from my studio window. (YAY) Her work is exquisite, fun, playful and just makes my whole dang day!
I will add more photos soon but for now I reccomend you get your own Mini Mobi <---this one is the same color as my large one (yum). She has an endless rainbow collection of glass available so if your red and blues aren't your palate you've got plenty of options. And, if you are just waiting for that highly exquisite piece of large & fabulous active art you can buy yourself a custom made big one as well! Leahs large glass mobils.

There is nothing like spinning colors of wonderful to make a dreary Portland day glow! Thanks Leah, I am in love with my mobil, you've made my new favorite thing and that is going to be a hard act to follow!

Is your Haim on Fire?

Mine is.

If you've been having trouble with your Haim catching fire lately I reccomend a good blog read. Reading blogs that talk about haim fires can really take the edge off the burn. Once your haim fire has been extinguished is reccomended that you proceed to the forums to post about missing views and over priced listing fees. Any complaing really keeps the swelling down. This is a medical fact!

Good luck and may your tinders keep you warm.

Spam of the Week!

The scam spam!

As many of you know I post a lot of adds on Craigs list. These often generate unusual contacts from people wishing to buy my jewelries. And now for your reading pleasure I present the first scam spam of the week!

I saw the advert of your Jeweries in craigslist placed for sell on the web page,Am glad to contact you about the sales of this Jeweries , and if there is any problem that may need to take care before the pick-up of the Jeweries; Also i will want you to get back to me with your last asking price, pics for closer look as well a The shipment would be a responsibility of mine as I have a shipping agent who will schedule pick up from you as soon as you confirm the receipt of payment. I shall be making the payment cashier check. Let me know if you are willing to sell the Jeweries to me and please let me have your full name, address and phone number so that I can make out payment in your name immediately.I look forward to a mutually satisfying business dealing with you. Have a great day and stay blessed.


A hard offer to turn down, dontcha think?

and a host of other amazing Etsians.
All in all it was very wet but fun to meet the faces behind the avatars and see the products in person.

Of course, by the time it was over we all looked a lot like this.....

Coming Soon To an Etsy Shop Near you :O)

Its been a busy week, as I am preparing for the Etsy show featuring Porltand artists. (*Downtown PDX, Saturday 8-5 by the farmers market, come say Hi!) In between sewing albums and folding accordion books, I've been making fresh and fantastic pendants from my new papers. I've taken photos of 25 sets (most new) that I'll be listing in my Pendant Section over the next few days. I am really looking forward to meeting the other Portland Etsy vendors and spending some time selling in the sunshine. I'll be sure to post photos and tell you all about it!


I was recently contacted by Andre at They want to sell my pendants a quite a mark up and a great price to me. The money is good but if I sell to them I wont have time for my smaller retail shops. After a long loud debate in my head I have decided to turn them down. I love my job and large scale retail could drive the love right out of littleput books.
Anyhow, if any of you crafty peeps are up for some major retail, I've got a contact now so let me know. It *was* flattering, thats for sure :O)
