Trick or Treat

Whatcha dressing up as for Halloween?  My older son will be Mario (of video game fame) for the second year in a row.  My little man is wavering between Pikachu & Yoshi (also of video game fame).  They've put in a request for me to be Princess Peach...I'm considering it.  :D

I love this time of year.  It's fun to watch my kiddos get excited about trick-or-treating, dressing up and pretending.

In the "spirit" of the season (get it?), now through Halloween (October 31) you can save 20% on all orders from my Etsy shop, HandstampedOriginals, with Coupon Code TRICKORTREAT

So...what are you going to be for Halloween?  :D

You bought what?

4 (four) vintage typewriters.  :D  I have big jewelry plans for them, but I just love them, so I'm torn...  

In the meantime...

Think Pink!

Time to Think Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, everyone.  We are all affected by breast cancer in some way.  My first personal experience was when my Grandma, Virginia, was diagnosed.  She died of breast cancer in the 80s, when I was a kid.

I created this piece as a way to honor breast cancer survivors and remember those who've gone too soon--and to help further breast cancer research efforts:

HandstampedOriginals will donate 50% of the proceeds of every Hope Defined Pink Ribbon Wooden Pendant to the Breast Cancer Research Fund.

Lots of my fellow Etsy Entrepreneurs have created pieces to commemorate Breast Cancer Awareness Month (BCAM) .  We've recently been featured in two different Etsy Treasuries to recognize BCAM.  You can check out these wonderful pink collections here:
