This weeks installment of TGIF - get ready to shop, shop, shop is all about the November-babies :) I have come up with a bunch of ideas in case you are stumped and don't know what to buy.... this time of year can get that way. Everyone is in Christmas mode, and it seems right from the start of November, those of us who have birthdays in November sort of get lost in the holiday spirit. I should know - I am a November-baby myself! So I have put together a list with a range of ideas, from birthstones to zodiacs. Have Fun!
Gold Shine - Citrine Quartz geode dipped in 22K gold by mycellardoor . I am in love with this necklace! there is nothing I like more than seeing lovely gems in their natural state. I guess that's the geologist in me :) This citrine geode pendant is dipped in gold and hung from a 14K gold chain. What a lovely gift this would make!
Zodiac Collection - 5x7 Matted Print by mysticmoonmedia - these prints come in your choice of zodiac sign and all are free to ship!
Romantic Rose Golden Citrine Blossom Flower Bobby Pin by ayawedding . How about a beautiful, handmade, organza flower pin to adorn your flowing locks? These flower bobby pins are just so pretty, and you could have one in any colour you want! And the best part is, the flower never wilts :)
Cute Animal Zodiac Multi Note Cards Set by Cuore. These note cards are blank, A2 size, come in a choice of 3 paper colour choices, and is a set of 12 (one for every zodiac sign or your choice of one sign on all 12 cards). These are really handy to have around - how cute wold it be to send notes to all your friends with your "signature" zodiac sign on them???
Custom Hello Kitty bell phone charm - zodiac crystal inlay by sachicrafts or The Snake key ring by JooSweetie . The key rings come in your choice chinese zodiac sign (in my case - Yes not only am I a Scorpio but I was also born Year of the Snake ;) ) and the bell charms have a choice of strap colour and crystal colour.
Cobweb felt scarf - Autumn leaves OOAK by vilte that is in a beautiful citrine shade! And it is a one-of-a-kind!
Citrine Bow Handbag by mojospastyle is exactly my style - I love the colour, the bow, the shape, the length of the strap (not too long not too short). I hope I get this for my birthday!!! :)
Well thats it - Happy Shopping :) Until next time, Kim XO.

***This post previously ran on CanArtisan - I have decided to share my weekly feature here as well, I hope you enjoy learning about the many talented Canadian artisans on Etsy.***
Also in another life (well really about 8 years ago) I fancied becoming an interior designer. I took the some classes through continuing education, attempted a perspective drawing class, applied to the degree program at Mount Royal - I never got in :( Guess what? Sarah's an interior decorator! I don't regret my eventual degree choice though.... actually it makes me happy to see that I am not the only one out there who changes her mind :) And it makes me feel like I belong among so many great and talented Etsians! I love the fact that even though Sarah was in the creative field to begin with, she still felt held back, and now has dedicated her time (full time) to making things that make her smile. They make me smile too :)
Photo Atelier is stocked with a wide variety of 8x8 and 5x5 fine art prints and large, medium, or small photo blocks. The photo blocks are exactly that - blocks of knotty pine, each is stained and sealed, with a photo applied to the front, and a small hole drilled in the back for hanging on the wall or you can set them on your table or shelf. I think that these are a very cool and unique way to display photos in your home - I can't wait to buy one myself! Everything in the shop is made to order and very reasonably priced. I would really recommend that you take a look at this shop - and if you like what you see there, Sarah also has a second shop that houses an array of eco felt cushions, textile art and memo boards - you can check it out here : http://sarahsmilecreations.etsy.com/
Enjoy! Until next time, Kim XO.

Wow, October is over already! Can't believe it :) Well now that Halloween has come and gone, I am looking forward to Christmas! My favourite part of Christmas is the bundling up in layers, sitting around drinking hot chocolate, being with family, playing in the snow, and eating way too much turkey!!! So as I start gearing up for the season, I start thinking about buying gifts and what I want to wrap them in. My favourite colour scheme is white and silver, and I love anything with snowflakes! So here is my new Wishlist Tuesday post with a snowflake theme. Enjoy!
