Friday’s Featured Artist & Some Holiday Cheer

Merry Christmas everyone! Oh….. it’s MARCH? I guess mother nature didn’t get the memo since she’s dumping BUCKETS OF SNOW in my front yard. I hear the weather is really nice and sunny elsewhere in the world. But not here. It’s snowing. Three days ago was the official First Day of Spring and it’s freaking SNOWING. So I figure I might as well spread some holiday cheer and wish everyone a Merry Christmas (or Hanukkah or Kwanza or whatever your preference may be). Because after all, we all know that the holidays are basically the only thing that make such crappy weather bearable. Oh, and finding new handmade artist we adore. That also helps.

In case you don’t feel like going out and getting another tree to put in your living room, allow me to brighten up your day by introducing you to Cathy from PosyPop. Find out more about this wonderful artist and her creations by reading the interview below. (Oh, and feel free to tell me what awesome weather you are having where YOU live in the comments below. Feeling envious once and awhile isn’t such a bad thing as long as it reminds me we aren’t all humming Deck the Halls.)

Can you sum yourself up in 3 sentences? Give it a go!
I’m a stay at home mom, a wife, an Etsy seller, and the organizer of my local moms group. I am an Etsy addict, because not only do I love to sell my creations, but I buy way too much too! I enjoy spending time with my family, traveling, creating jewelry, crafting, and watching films from the 30’s and 40’s.

What is your favorite thing about creating/collecting?
My favorite thing about creating is the whole process, from finding components, to listing and selling my items on Etsy. It something I can say I really enjoy and I do it because I love it.

    I live in Austin,Tx we had about 5 minutes of snow 3 years ago. People ran out of offices and restaurants to look at it. I was from Okla where we only get 3-4 months if lucky of good weather.

    I love your blog and jewelry.

    Cathy’s jewelry is beautiful, love those earrings! Thanks for introducing her!

    Hope your springtime weather begins SOON and the snow goes away!! The weather here was so strange this winter. I live in Michigan and we hardly got any snow… Very mild winter for here. And even though it’s March, we should still be having cold temps, but we’ve had a few days where it reached nearly 90 degrees! Unheard of here, for this time of year.

    Off to visit Cathy’s links!

    Great feature and I am loving that flower cuff bracelet!
    We moved from UT last year and snow is one thing I don’t miss. Hope the weather warms up for you soon!
