ArtByFensler…Florida charcoal, pen and ink, and oils artist.

Trent Fensler is not your typical artist! He is a USMC vet with a true passion for art who loves to express his creativity through a variety of different mediums. From charcoal pieces, oil paintings, watercolor pencils, and original watercolors his Etsy shop displays the variety in styles of his artwork. He currently operates his art studio out of Crestview, Florida. You can catch him at local art sales around the Crestview area to see his work in person however his Etsy shop is the best way to purchase his pieces!il_570xn-899632406_8a3k Featured in the photograph here is one of my favorite pieces by ArtByFensler. Passionate about floral artwork myself, I was instantly drawn to this piece. This is an original oil painting by Fensler titled “Renoir’s Bouquet”. This piece is Fensler’s tribute to the masterful ‘Spring Bouquet’ by Renoir. This art piece was created over a series of several weeks on a canvas panel. It has been paired with a beautiful frame that was carefully selected to match the classic nature of the art piece. This oil painting is 18 x 24″ and signed by Fensler himself.

BlueWorldTreasures…Handcrafted OOAK Gemstone & Native American Jewelry

BlueWorldTreasures on Etsy brings you handcrafted genuine OOAK gemstone and Native American Jewelry from Grand Prairie, Canada.  All of BlueWorldTreasures pieces are handcrafted by shop owner and creator Tara Potter from design to completion. These jewelry pieces are wearable pieces of art that you will not find anywhere else! Tara and her husband are both Metis people – recognized Aboriginal people in Canada, with distinct culture and traditions that borrow from their mixed heritage (European and First Nations).  Tara aims for a natural feel for all her pieces as she loves the beauty of the natural world around us. All of the gemstones and pearls Tara uses in her designs are real, as only the real pieces possess healing vibrations. She is an avid lover of nature having always lived in northern Canada, growing up in the Yukon Territory. 

You will see some unfamiliar words while browsing BlueWorldTreasures Etsy section names – these are Cree words, and they are used to divide up the shop according to the feel portrayed by each unique piece. Wawetseka means “Pretty Woman” and this section contains more mainstream pieces that possess a more modern, sophisticated feel.  Huritnuna means “Beautiful Land” and this is where you will find Aboriginal styled pieces that also incorporate not only gemstones, but birchbark, driftwood, butterfly wings, and buffalo bone. Askuwetaw means “He Keeps Watch”- in this section you will discover handcrafted, heirloom quality Rosaries, Prayer Beads and Cross Jewelry. Wematin means “Setting Sun” which displays discontinued pieces that are discounted if you are on the search for a great deal! 

il_570xn-1097524962_m7s9

These long boho bullet necklaces from BlueWorldTreasures featured here are totally unique! The brass casings are from shells that brought down a large bull Buffalo for a sacred Sundance ceremony.  A single Herkimer diamond has been inserted into the empty end of each casing and then each casing has been wire wrapped with pure copper jewelry wire. The long cord is genuine rawhide. Tara has adorned each bullet differently. The first one has a turquoise dyed Howlite carved leaf bead attached. The second one has a genuine Tigers Eye gemstone nugget, and the third one is a simple Sacred Spiral finish. These are three very unique pieces that are one-of-a-kind! Once these are sold, there are no more until next Spring after the next sacred ceremony.

You can find BlueWorldTreasures jewelry offline in the Slave Lake Visitors Centre Gift Shop in Slave Lake, Alberta, Canada as well as in the Kinusayo Museum Gift Shop in Kinuso, Alberta, Canada.  If you would like Tara to create a unique custom piece just for you, then please get in touch with her. She loves accepting custom work! 10% of all sales from BlueWorldTreasures are donated to 4 Charities that are near and dear to Tara’s heart ~ KIVA, World Wildlife Fund, Greenpeace International and Doctors Without Borders.

SimplyProfound on Etsy is a praiseful, purposeful and profound Etsy shop that is dedicated to creating unique handmade items that go beyond just design and product. Each item is thoughtfully created and crafted for the purpose of bringing about a positive change in the world. Every piece sold gives back in donations to various causes and charities. Shop owner and designer Laura Franco’s goal is to bring you a simple shop yet one with with a profound purpose. The idea behind SimplyProfound stemmed from Laura’s desire to live a life that is full of meaning and purpose. Each collection in her shop represents an important aspect of her life all with the purpose of revolving around praising God, promoting animal welfare, and simply giving back to the community. The Simply Praiseful collection is dedicated to giving praise and serving God. Through donations SimplyProfound hopes to be able to help spread the gospel, provide food and shelter to those less fortunate, and bring hope to those seeking something bigger. The Simply Purposeful collection is for all the animal lovers and activists that are out there each day saving animals and promoting animal welfare. As a non-consumer of animals herself and a momma of four dogs, Laura has an immense appreciation and respect for all creatures and their life. No animal should ever have to endure suffering for our selfish purpose of pleasure, entertainment, or greed. Each item serves as an advocacy of animal rights and contributes monetary funds to those establishments making a change and difference in the lives of animals. The Simply Profound collection is more of an eclectic combination that reflects other passions and interests. Each item is simple and unique in design but profound in what it stands for. I love the fact that with the Simply Profound collection, a percentage of the proceeds from this collection goes to the buyer’s choice of charity.

ChunksBabyJunk…for your sippy cup throwing toddler!

ChunksBabyJunk was made specifically for your sippy cup throwing toddler! This cute Etsy shop is your one stop shop for Baby’s Sippy Cup Straps & Accessories! Most moms are in need of a Sippy Cup Strap with a Suction Cup. How many moms do we have out there that have toddlers that love dropping their sippy cups off their high chairs? ChunksBabyJunk shop owner and creator Heidi Danker’s little one had quite the arm at a young age and inspired her to create these unique sippy cup straps. She thought that there had to be a suction gadget out on the market for a sippy cup. After looking everywhere and being unable to find anything she went out and bought a sewing machine and materials to create her very own Suction Sippy Strap. After selling several thousand Suction Sippy Straps, she is so glad she followed through with her idea about opening up an Etsy shop to make these sippy straps available to other moms out there! Heidi knows how many other parents must go through the same chaos at meal time as she did and are looking for a solution! Heidi is a stay at home mom to two boys, ages 4 and 2. Her Etsy shop is her ‘nap-time’, nighttime and weekend job. Heidi absolutely LOVES making these and is more than happy to accommodate custom colors/designs. All parents of little cup chuckers need this so they aren’t constantly bending down every two seconds to get their little munchkins cup!

This Sippy Strap featured in the photograph here is one of my favorites! This cute giraffe print is great for both boys and girls who need a sippy strap! This durable Sippy Strap is made of a double layer of ribbon, metal D-ring, velcro and a removable suction cup to make it very versatile. Places to use with the suction cup include *Certain Tables, *Car Windows ,*Plastic High Chair Trays; while places to use without the suction cup include *Strollers,*Shopping Carts,*Wooden High Chairs, *Car Seats, *Hiking Backpacks! You will love the versatility these sippy straps provide. They can be used with or without the suction cup! You will love how easy it is to just suction the Sippy Strap to a table or plastic high chair tray or remove the suction cup to loop onto a stroller.

DesignsJennJ…from hobby to small business!

Browsing DesignsJennJ you will discover a variety of different handmade skull themed doggy sweaters, skull scarves, skull kitty sweaters, tree of life jewelry, and other uniquely designed jewelry pieces. Shop owner and creator Jenn Brewster currently runs her Etsy shop out of Cambridge, Canada. Jenn has always loved crocheting but most patterns did not fit her particular style and her love of more edgy clothing and accessories. In order to achieve the design look she was looking for she just started designing patterns for herself.  On one particular day she was wearing a skull scarf she had made and was stopped on the street to ask where she bought it. Later that day she was also asked to be a vendor at an upcoming ladies nights event to showcase her skull scarf designs. The immediate love of her unique creations led to the realization that she could turn her hobby into a small business. Soon after the event, Jenn expanded her line to include pet fashion items, crafting sweaters for doggies and kitties alike! Jenn also taught a Tree of Life workshop for the Waterloo Aboriginal Education Centre which resulted in custom requests and is now designing Tree of Life pieces to ship all over the country!

il_570xn-983240206_5827Featured in the photograph here is one of Jenn’s awesome custom order crochet scarves with a skull motif and fringe. You can choose this solid pink design or select the unique color or combinations that showcase your style for a one-of-a-kind wearable piece! Customizable options include the main scarf color, the edging and the fringe. If you love this skull themed scarf you have to see Jenn’s pet fashion scarf line. Get an adorable matching skull scarf set for you and your pet!!

HomeSpunEssence’s Love Spell (VS) Inspired wool dryer ball scent is featured in the photograph here! HomeSpun wool dryer ball scents come in 2 different sizes, for your convenience. The life of each bottle will depend on you and your scenting preferences. Some people like a very light scent, as others may prefer something a little stronger.There are approximately 400 drops of liquid in the 15ml bottles, so if you were to buy a set of 6 dryer balls and use 2 drops per ball that’s more than 30 loads! This number will all depend on you and how often you scent the dryer balls. From Hylarii’s experience,  2 drops per ball/per load is plenty of scent to add to your HomespunEssence Wool dryer balls. These Wool dryer ball scents are made of only the finest essential and fragrance oils that are also phthalate free.

HomeSpunEssence also has tons of other wool dryer ball scent options to choose from- Blueberry Pancakes, Banana Nut bread, Caramel Apple, and Dragons Blood are just a few others that I am curious to try!
