foxtrotcharlie1. The header picture is her Victorian Ascot Tie from her MaritimeArts Etsy shop. Oh! If you haven't seen her Victorian and reenactment clothing, you just HAVE TO check out her shop! If I had known her 28 years ago I might have had her make me a Victorian-inspired wedding dress! I could have seen myself in something like this Striped Bustle Gown.
And anybody that's seen me tweeting on Twitter knows that my number one supporter is probably 'Bead'. That's what I call Cindy, Beadlynn7 on Twitter. To put it in slang: 'She picks up everything I'm putting down'!! LOL She's my sister and my friend, and I don't know where I would be without her support.
She's a great jewelry designer too!! I love her CinLynnBoutique Etsy shop. My REAL favorites are her Purse/Zipper Pulls. But lately I've been loving her earrings a lot too!! But of course this Jasper and Antique Brass Necklace ain't nothing to 'shake a stick at' either! LOL
letamariedesign, or letamariedesigns (with an "S" added, for her Artfire shop). She makes me smile when I pop on Twitter and there she is, showing off some item or the other from my shop, along with the sweetest comments about them! :-) I wish I could show you an item from her Artfire shop, but in order to do that I would have to break their copyright laws about copying pictures. So, instead I'll just give you a link to what I'm talking about...I love her White Mother of Pearl Earrings with Black Swarovski Crystals. She's having a 10% off SALE from now until October 15th on her beautiful jewelry. Well Worth Your Attention!!
Cat, of catcanpaint (on Etsy), is an original artist and a raptor handler! She has mostly owl paintings in her shop. They have been made into prints to use as greeting cards. Very talented!
SAW-WHET Owl Original Art Greeting Card....She has my little shop on a Twitter reminder or something. So, no matter what day it is she has the link to my shop out there! I really appreciate her support.
I could not talk about support without including craftgal! She tweets with me about sports (She's a Phillies fan), crocheting, my shop, and we've even had an exchange or two about recipes. Every time I see the words CROCHET RULES! I know it's her!! :-)
This is her Black and White Crochet Scarf.
etsy shop too!
So, as you can see, in Twitterville I have lots of support. Come by and tweet with me sometime and see! I'm Poetesswug2. (My number one "Wug" place is my Wuglyees shop. ^_^) And frankly, this is only the tip of the iceberg! I'll share others later.
I have lots of support in my offline life too, in the way of family, congregation, and spousal support. I want all of you to know that I appreciate you very much!! I'll try to be a good supporter of you all too whenever I can!!!...Speaking of which...
...I have a team to support too. The Artisans of Western Mass Team. Today I'll introduce you to Becky Lemanski of ATBcreations on Etsy.
Copper Wrapped Oval Stone Necklace from her Etsy shop!
I Am Thankful
I am thankful I can breathe
when I wake up every day;
I am thankful I have time
in which I can spend to pray.
I am thankful that my husband
is a good, hard-working man;
I am thankful I can write
with a steady flowing hand.
I am thankful for good friends,
who are always there for me;
I am thankful for my ears,
and the sunsets I can see.
I am thankful for the Bible,
`cause from it I learned the truth;
I am thankful for the rain,
and my house, with rain-proof roof.
I am thankful for my life,
because without it I'd be dead-
and the dead can't serve Jehovah,
or even practice what he's said.
I am thankful for this poem,
writing it was not a chore,
`cause it made me stop and think
of all the things I'm thankful for.
