Etsy Goodness

I'm excited to share with you some more of the Blogmania giveaway items and their shops! These gals are so creative and I love being able to share their talents with you all!

If you've been reading the past sneak peek posts you may have noticed a theme emerging. Our giveaway theme is "Irish Blessings".  Here are some more Irish Blessings that some lucky readers will win in a couple of weeks!

About Irish Pixie, "I've served in the military since I was 18 years old and just retired. Recently I became a single mom of two gorgeous little boys- two year old twins. They are my valentine sweethearts!
I began making jewelry after they were born was diagnosed with post partum depression. My therapist recommended I learn a new hobby. I discovered that I absolutely love designing something unique and special and want to share my view with everyone.
My absolute favorite piece of jewelry to make is the Mommy's bracelets. I made one for me with my two boys names and absolutely love wearing it! I'd love to make one for you too!"

The beautiful Irish Coffee with Cream bracelet in the picture is the item up for grabs in the giveaway!

Amy is a fellow Missourian! She is a designer from St. Louis, MO, specializing in silver and wire handmade jewelry.

The item she is offering is this silver and purple Celtic knot bracelet.

I was just browsing through Amy's etsy shop and saw some earrings with my birthstone that I thought were so pretty.

Lindsay from PatTheCat is offering this cute Irish Dancers tote bag! She tells us a little about herself in her bio on etsy, "I like to make things. Ever since I can remember I've liked to make things. Clothes for Barbie, tiny pies for my sister's dollhouse, jewellery, pictures, paper sculptures... I was always getting told off as a child for making a mess, when actually I was working on some new masterpiece or other.

My interest in art, design, and deconstructing/reassembling things to find out how they work turned into a degree in product design, which turned into a job as an engineer with an immense need to let my artistic creativity out in my free time and do something useful with it.

I love to draw and construct things, and what better way to combine these two things than by designing my own fabric then making things out of it?

I also like to knit, crochet, bake cakes, take photos, grow vegetables, and Irish dance.

Everything you see here is a result of my many interests, my passion for always being busy designing and creating things, and my conviction that handmade is best. I hope you like what you see!"

On the 15th you'll be able to enter our giveaway here on The Missionary Mama and jump to the next blog participating in Blogmania. You won't want to miss it!

I have missed visiting you, Melissa. Lots going on in our lives, and Mr. Magpie will be having surgery in the morning. I won't go into the details here, but I would love it if you would pray for him. Details on my blog. Thanks so much.
