still here!

i've been in northern california for over a month - working like a dog! i work on a farm and usually by the end of the night, i'm exhausted...

why do i do this? well, the pay is great, and it's wonderful to get exercise working outside in northern california wine country every day, at least in october (it starts raining in november and i get very, VERY cranky - but hopefully that means some good inside time to *MAKE SOMETHING*).

in the meantime, i still have several shop offerings for you to browse, some of which are custom pieces which i can make anywhere - and will, happily!

happy fall!

I have two new beautiful pieces featuring beads I got from the Gem Faire:

I took the photos for both in my lightbox. I need a brighter light source for it, but other than that it's great! Earrings are a little tricky, as they don't want to stay put on the curved card stock. I'll figure it out with some trial and error.

Autumn Harvest

This is a piece for the Autumn EAST Challenge. You can check out all the challenge pieces here.
I feel so grateful to be a part of such a talented group of artists!!! All the challenge pieces are AMAZING!!!

I am so excited how this piece turned out. This was a vision that has been swimming around in my mind for awhile. I used different cottons, organic cottons, batik cottons, hand dyed canvas, and a piece of vintage upholstry fabric for the moon. I appliqued it all together with different colored embroidery threads. My husband made a frame from stained poplar to compliment the piece. You can see more pictures and details about this piece here.

I have taken the day off to raid the Rock and Gem Faire. I am that much of a nut, yes.

I'm so excited about it! I've been saving since April, and now I get to go and hopefully find a bunch of things I simply cannot live without (snark, snark). I'm hoping for some iolite and kyanite especially, since online stores seem to carry only chips, spikes, and unappealingly-colored beads. Either that or they're $130 a strand, and that's just not in my budget.

Other things I'll be specifically looking for:
Carved stone beads
Amethyst (it sells like mad for me)
Carnelian (ditto)
Red tiger eye
Tourmalated quartz

I'm sure I'll return with an armload of amazingly gorgeous specimens. I'll play with my lightbox and see if I can get nice pictures of them (it's dark and raining outside).

In other news, my mature content earrings have 911 views! They'll be my first item to hit 1,000 if nothing goes wrong with the view counters! :D

A Toast to Autumn

Druids and dryads could both enjoy spiced wine from these oak leaf and acorn glasses. They are one of the featured items in my shop, and therefore part of my special "free shipping on featured items" sale.
Besides wineglasses, several of my art pieces celebrate grapes and wine. I grew up in a California wine town, and when I think of harvest festivals I think of juicy grapes and rich red wine. Browse the fine art section at http://krummenacker.etsy.com to see them all.

Halloween is on the way!

It's a chilly day.

I am simmering hot apple cider on the stove, and the scent is filling my home. I worked on a light box today so I can photograph my jewelry even when the sun is hiding!

Still on the list? Buy another pumpkin and that awesome pumpkin cleaner/scoop I saw at Michael's.

Harvesting Your Good Intentions

Harvesting Your Good Intentions
As autumn creeps in bringing with it the changing seasons, our lives burst forth in vivid colors of orange ,yellow and red. We leave (or is that leaf) behind the lush spring and summer greens and turn our heads toward the warmth of crackling fires and smooth hot cocoa. What better time to ponder on the successes we have had this year.....the special things that have come our way and Harvest all the good intentions we have been sowing this past year. There is no better time than the present to pull out those warm and cuddly hats. I feel totally blessed to have a forum to strut my passion. My hats are my canvas as are the people who wear my hats. May your autumn season be filled with the color of creativity.
Peace Be

In the Spirit of Fall...

...and approaching Halloween, I blended a very tasty, spicy, warming tea ;).

Happy October, all!

I cannot believe I've been on Etsy for 7 months today. Wow! I also can't believe how much I've learned about running a business in that short amount of time- and how many new friends I've made along the way! It's amazing- I hope I have another seven incredible months. :)

So anyway, in anticipation of the upcoming holiday, I added this choker to my shop today. I have a pair of fishnets that would be lovely with it as well, just need to photograph them at some point.

Can't wait to see what the rest of the team is up to for October!

Happy October from Green Fingers

Shop Announcement for October 2007

I love fall--it's my favorite season, and October is my favorite month of those that comprise autumn. Hot apple cider (spiced, with a little brandy, even better!), pumpkin carving, costumes, falling leaves, HALLOWEEN! Fall is a time of celebration of all the abundance the universe has given us. I have SO much to be thankful for, and am reminded of it most strongly in the fall, when winter is coming--and I have nothing to fear from it. When the nights are cold--and I have a warm bed and a warm fire in the wood stove. When I have plenty to eat, a safe shelter, a family that loves me, and amazing friends to share all my joys with.I think it is important to remember, when we reflect on all we have to be grateful for, that for some people fall isn't a time of celebration, but a time of worry. Worry about whether they will be able to keep warm and feed their families over the winter. It's important to remember that enjoyment of the cold days is a luxury not afforded to everyone.
So in honor of my favorite month, I'm going to do what I can to express my gratitude by giving a little back. For the month of October I will be donating 30% of the purchase price of every Etsy sale to the Oregon Food Bank. This includes custom orders as well. It's the least I can do.
