Hey gang! Lots to report! My last blog was a birthday feature blog, and I tipped my hat to a few fellow South Carolina Etsians who were celebrating their big days. Well, the powers-that-be over at the SC Street Team liked the idea so much, they've asked me to be a contributer to THEIR blog! I'm pretty excited about it, especially since it's just another way to promote awesome SC artists!!

Today was my first blog over there, which means, I have another birthday story to share with you!! SimplyCharminginSC would like to wish a very happy birthday to Renate and Arlene, the etsy duo who created JNJKeepsakes

These ladies are pretty special. They create handmade beads from dried flower petals and incorporate those beads into their designs! How cool is that?? Have a particular bouquet that's really special? Dry those puppies and send them to Renate and Arlene and they can create you a piece of jewelry you can treasure much longer than the life of the flowers.

But there is an even bigger reason why you should wander into their shop. These ladies have a very special reason for selling on Etsy. One of their creations, the
Jessica Necklace (pictured below) was inspired by Arlene's neice, who was killed in a drunk driving accident. The proceeds from the sale of this necklace are donated to MADD.

So stop by and wish these talented and creative ladies a Happy Birthday....and maybe pick up one of those beautiful necklaces for yourself.

In other news, I've been busy crafting and had a few new items to post in my Etsy shop! Here is your very own personal sneak peek!

Jungle Vine Bracelet, $10

Black Tie Affair Bracelet, $12

Told ya! I've got a couple of other things I've sent to be added to the SC Street Team store, as well. So stay tuned for that!! I've also SLASHED all my shipping prices---so it's MUCH more affordable to buy from my shop now!!

I hope, if nothing else, this blog inspires you to visit etsy! It feels SO good to be back to the grind again! I'm so glad it's 2010! :) Till next time, from,

That's right. I'm still alive and kickin'. Having lived my life, I'm not surprised at all that it's been since September since I last blogged. However, you, the reader, having not lived my life the past few months, I'm sure you're quite surprised to finally hear from me again! I'll not go into huge detail but let's suffice it to say that the end of 2009 wasn't such a terrific time. But I'm bouncing back in 2010, and I'm SO excited that it's the New Year! I'm looking forward to making this year count in a MAJOR way!

So, since our last encounter, I've taken a role as the official "Birthday Greeter" on TeamSC... which is the PERFECT job for me. I volunteered because I really wanted to be more active in my team, and in my Etsy shop, and this particular assignment allows me an easy way to achieve that goal. I have an obligation to log in everyday to check the calendar for birthdays, and that means I instantly become more active! Not to mention, I get to send birthday wishes--how happy is that??!?

I thought it would be fun to also feature those sellers with Birthday Blogs! are a few awesome SC sellers who have had recent birthdays--you should really check them out!

Flash Forward Photography is one of those shops that you just can't stop looking at--gorgeous photos that make you want to visit South Carolina. She celebrated her birthday on Christmas Eve, and this is my favorite item from her shop:

It's called "Sunday Morning," and it's an 8X10 photograph of the pier on Folly of my all time favorite places in the whole world. Isn't it gorgeous?? You can find it HERE.

We also celebrated a New Year's Eve birthday with our friend Adriane, from our beautiful capital, Columbia, SC. She sells the most vibrant, colorful, and fun hand painted silk items in her store AdrianeMichelle. When I first looked at her shop, I immediately thought of fireworks because there are SO many colors!! Here is my favorite item from her inventory:

She calls it a Digital Fancy Silk Scarf, and you can find it HERE. I chose it because I think the colors are reminiscent of a tropical ocean. Beautiful.

We have 3 birthdays coming up in January, and I'll be featuring them here on their big days! I've always been proud to be a member of TeamSC, but as I'm learning more and more about our artists, it's staggering to me the amount of talent we have!! If you're interested in more South Carolina artisans, you can search for us on Etsy using the keyword "teamsc." You can also shop our Team Store!

Until next time...(And I promise it won't be 3 months from now!)
