Shopping with and Supporting Friends for The Holidays

It’s been a busy few weeks with decorating, cleaning and de-cluttering (is that a real word??) my house and getting together with friends and family for the holidays and with just a few days until Christmas is here, I still feel like there is so much left to be done.

I must say that since I’m at home with my 3 toddler boys it is hard for me to go out shopping and this holiday season more than ever I’ve done most of my shopping online. I am proud to say that I’ve supported some families along the way whose moms and dads are work at home parents and who offer such wonderfully unique products.

Here are some of my great shopping finds this season:

I bought beautiful handcrafted glass ornaments from my friend Aprilee at her online etsy store Artistry Jewelry Studios
Aprilee is very talented and not only creates one-of-a-kind jewelry but also purses, hats, and other fine crafts. Direct link to ornament: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=35340809


I bought scrumptiously smelling soap petals and decorative soaps from my friend Lasanthi at her online store Gourmet Scents


I bought chocolate ornaments from my friend Glenda at her online store Shake Your Bon Bons (I even signed up under Glenda for my own affiliate store---I fell in love with the yummy chocolates and baked goodies).


I bought some Christmas and other holiday books for my kids from my Mom’s (Marjorie) online bookstore Usborne Books http://www.myubam.com/Y2612 and even signed up for a chance to win $50 worth of free books in their monthly drawing.


I bought the cutest Toy Soldier craft kit from my friend Linda at her online store Lynnielee’s Loft. Direct link to products: http://lynnieleesloft2.yolasite.com/gallery-and-products.php


From my own online store called Simply Tempted (one of the many boutiques you will find at Online Shopping Boutique) I bought delicious bath and body products and soy candles.


I became a loyal customer of my friend Sheri’s company ItWorks! so I could take advantage of discount prices on natural health products…and I’m sure glad I did.


I also bought great gourmet coffees from my friend Kathy’s online store The Eclectic Mall. There are so many different stores to shop from that it will be hard not to find something for everyone on your shopping list. Direct product link: http://the-eclectic-mall.webnode.com/products/a-love-of-coffee/


And last but not least I bought some really cool holiday gifts for family and friends from my friend Gabbriella at her online store Gabbriella’s Closet.

These one of a kind gifts and unique products can always be found at our business resource and shopping social network Online Shopping Mall at http://onlineshoppingmall.ning.com/

Come on by and see what we all have in store for you!

Happy Hannukah! Merry Christmas! Happy Kwaanza! Many Blessing this holiday season and all the very best of everything in 2010!

Autumn Wishes from Online Shopping Boutique


Happy Fall Everyone!

I'm enjoying the wonderful crisp fall weather and gearing up for the upcoming holiday season. It’s been a while since I’ve posted on this blog…but I’m back!!
I’ve been focusing on my kids (who are now three and heading off to preschool in a 2 weeks) Wooo Hoooo! And I’ve been focusing on my shopping social network too.

But now I’ve updated my Online Shopping Boutique website with some new promotions, sales and New Stores! And I will share those with you in another post.

But as right now as my boys, who coincidentally have colds, and are now napping, I sit here at my computer sipping some Chai Amaretto Tea I purchased from my Teaporia website. I really love this favor…it’s so smooth and the taste is just (it’s hard to describe) but I feel like I’m on a porch by the beach at sunset… smelling the fresh sea air, taking in the beautiful beach scenery with the meandering hills in the background… and I’m just soooo relaxed….yes the tea actually took me there.

So let me share this with you until the next post:

Teaporia (I just love this website – so much different tea favors and wonderful scones, scrumptious mixes and unique gift items) is have a 30% off sale on all their teas and their Children Tea Sets in honor of their 3rd Anniversary. You must use this code 3ANNIV at checkout to get the discount, and this offer is valid until the end of October.

Click here to shop:



Happy 3rd Anniversary Teaporia…Hmmm another sip of Amaretto Chai…Take me Away!

Jewelry To Live For

Work At Home Artisan Business Feature

I love jewelry…which woman doesn’t, right? I especially love handcrafted jewelry. I am so fortunate to have a friend who makes the most unique jewelry and why I love her jewelry even more!! It’s at a price I can afford.

Let me introduce you to my friend, Aprilee, the creative genius behind Artisan Jewelry Studios. I purchased some jewelry from her as gifts for others but mostly for me. I always look forward to mail after I purchase because they are always gift wrapped or packaged so beautifully and I can’t wait to see my surprise!!! There is often a gift with purchase—it’s like Christmas every time you purchase jewelry from Aprilee at Artistry Jewelry Studios.

Here are some of her beautifully designed creations:








I am proud to call her my friend and I’d love for you to get to know her too. Here’s Aprilee’s bio:

I’m Aprilee Lawson, the creator behind Artistry Jewelry Studios. I grew up in Maryland. The only girl, raised with an older & younger brother. I was always creative and loved working with my hands. So much that I went to Trade School and became a Certified Carpenter! I was such a good, hard worker that whenever a new guy wanted to apply for a job, my boss would point to me and say "If you can keep-up with her, you've got a job." I only witnessed one guy getting the job! LOL!


When I was in high school I became very interested in working with pastels. I loved them for their "blendability". I hadn't done any work with my hands for some time. When my friend signed-up for a Jewelry Construction Class and didn't want to go alone, I signed up with her. I was actually very reluctant to go. I quickly began developing skills and thursting for more. I began devoting myself to learning all I could about different mediums and techniques. Within the first few classes, I was working with jewelry at home. As time progressed, I was asked to take-over teaching the class. I love researching and learning new things, so jewelry seems to be my perfect "fit".

Jewelry is more than a chain draped around one's neck. It has defined one's class, ethnicity, hopes and dreams, seemingly forever. I am caught-up in all jewelry was, is and can be. Jewelry has redefined who I am as a person, and what I stand for! I have just begun blogging about the history of jewelry! Follow my blog and have fun learning! I always do! I am getting ready to expand my accessories to include crochet collars (yes, I also crochet) and vintage-style millinery hats, headbands, etc. You never know what I'll be doing next!


Treat yourself to some of Aprilee’s treasures. You’ll be glad you did. Visit her sites and blog often for her specials and sales. You can find Aprilee and her wonderful creations at the following online locations:

Get Your Unique and Beautiful Handcrafted Cards at Liz Felgate Crafts

I sure did! And I love them!!

My friend and fellow work at home business owner, Liz Felgate of Liz Felgate Crafts, designs the most adorable handcrafted cards. I saw her work on her website and just had to have one, or two or three. And for those of you who know me, you know exactly why I need three. LOL!

My sons will be turning 3 in October and when I saw a photo of Liz's Thomas the train card, I just had to ask her to custom make birthday cards for my boys. So I bought one birthday card for each wee one and waited anxiously for them to get to me in the mail. When they got here…they looked so amazing…even better in person. The quality of the card stock Liz uses is very sturday and durable -- no flimsy cards at all. The ribbons, the vibrant colors, the designs and all the embellishments and creativity put into each card is just so special and unique I felt like no other wee one will have a birthday card like the ones I bought from Liz. See for yourself---Here are the pictures of the birthday cards:










You see why I just love them right? And I know the boys will love them too. Can't wait to see the excitement in their eyes and their smiles of wonder.



Liz creates cards for any occasion that you can imagine. Here are examples of some of her other work:

Graduation:


Father's Day:


Wedding:


More of Liz's Card Collections:




Aren't they all just wonderful? You just have to see her entire collection at her website. Like me you’ll want to buy one, or two, or three…or more!

Read on the learn more about my friend and creative genius, Liz Felgate. Her bio is below in her very own words:

About Liz Felgate & Felgate Crafts:
Originally from England I have been living and crafting in the US for nearly 9 years now. I love making greetings cards for all occasions and started making them as I could never find the right one for that special person or occasion. Over the years my designs have evolved and changed as I gain new experiences and inspiration from the world around me, along with learning new techniques.

I live with my husband Clive, Jelly the dog, and Casper the cat in Maryland. I love all sorts of things that are creative, including decorating, gardening and cooking. I also love to travel and see new places and I'm working through my 'Bucket List' of things to do and see. My latest accomplishments includes doing my first marathon and a triathlon.

In 2009 I decided that I wanted to turn my hobby of making cards into a business and so created my store on Etsy. Sales were a little slow to start but are getting quite steady now, and I'm learning along the way about all of the networking out there. I also sell my cards in a local gallery in Brunswick, MD and hope to get my cards into several other shops in nearby towns.

A Tribute to my Mom



She asks for no rewards
She does all she can for her family
She even goes without sometimes
She loves

She stands alone
She does it all
day and night
night and day
She does it all for her family
She loves

She cries
She aches
She mornes
She begs
She pleads
She prays
She sacrifices all for her family
She loves

She laughs
She remembers
She cherishes
She delights all for her family
She loves


To my Mom, Marjorie, who is always been there for me …through rain or shine. I just want you to know I appreciate you and the life you give me. I appreciate the example you set for me and most of all I appreciate the unconditional love you give and continue to give me.

It is an honor to be your daughter.
