Something Green - UWIB Blog Hop!! Join in!!

Nowadays when you hear the words 'something green' you are immediately drawn to the ecosystem that we have ignored for so many years.  Let's try to be more 'green' by recycling, carry our own bags into the store, carpool to work or play, buy a Smart car; the list is long and every little bit helps.

But what about St. Patrick's Day at this time of year??  Don't we think green when that date starts to role around?  Wear green, drink green beer, celebrate the Irish in any way we know how.  What is St. Patrick's Day all about anyway?

St. Patrick's Day is on March 17th because it is believed to be the day the saint died.  Before his death, he is said to have brought the Christian religion to Ireland.  "Saint Patrick's Day has come to be associated with everything Irish: anything green and gold, shamrocks and luck. Most importantly, to those who celebrate its intended meaning, St. Patrick's Day is a traditional day for spiritual renewal and offering prayers for missionaries worldwide" (

Regardless of the reason you 'think green' let's see what we find to help you along those lines via handmade avenues on Etsy presented by those Unique Women in Business team members.  First, I found a adorable dog collar:

Crazy for Collars offers this piece of Green!

 Let's go straight from our beloved pet to that precious little baby or grandbaby:

Fashion Touch does wonders with green yarn.

What about for ourselves:

AudreyGardenLady can twist beads & wire like crazy!

Or a gift for Mom/Sis/BFF:

LMCreations can cut fabric to fit!

Let's think about really going 'Green' with this double duty tote--made from an upcycled tee into a great tote with a SHAMROCK on it!!  Talk about Green!

Rita's Creations serve double duty with Green!

Now I would like to introduce you to some other UWIB team members that are blogging "Think Green" and give you a chance to see what those witty women think when they hear the term.  Check them out, leave a comment and tell them I sent you!! 

After you check them out come back here and leave me a comment telling me which one you think hit on the same meaning you have when you Think Green.  I will send one of you a cute pair of green shamrock earrings as a gift.  (I will use to draw the winner.) 

The prize: 

Momma Goddess Think Green prize

Okay, here's the list:  Happy Green Hunting!!!

CRAVE Denver - An Urban Girl's Guide

The new CRAVE Denver guide is hitting the newsstands today and I'm featured in this book!  This book is known as the Urban Girl's Manifesto and is the most unique and stylish guidebook for Denver living. It is a celebration of women entreprenesses that showcases some of the most creative, interesting, and gutsy proprietors throughout the Front Range.

 For a limited time I will be giving this book to my customers when they make a purchase of $75 or more!  The book sells for $19.95 on the newsstands so that is an awesome bargain for you.  Also, you will find coupons in the back of the book to use at your favorite shop.  

I am excited to share this opportunity with you and can hardly wait to see what other unique women owners can be found within the pages.

Let me know what you think.  Do know that you are able to purchase the book outright on my website as well; but why not have some treasures to show for it?

Tonight is our book launch party and I will be meeting many of the other sassy ladies in the guide.  I will try to keep you posted about the night!
Stop by my website for the book Momma Goddess Treasures or to purchase some treasures to earn a free one, stop by my Etsy site.

Etsy Twitter Team Shop of the Week - Faerytale Wings Art

You know all those little pictures in the back of books that tell you to draw a copy of the picture and send it in to go to art school??  Did you ever try it?  Well, I have and I want you to know that my picture didn't look quite right--thus my love of abstracts.  Well, let me introduce you to the Etsytwitter Team's Shop of the Week - Faerytale Wings Art - aka Lydia and Curtis Kinsey.  I doubt that Lydia did the drawing, but if she did, it matched perfectly!  Her skill with a pencil is phenomenal.  
I love to buy art for my daughters and started when they were young.  Faerytalewings has some great ACEO's in their shop that would be perfect for starter art work for your child.  And the price is right as well.  Check out the princesses starting with the newest princess on the scene:

Tiana The Princess and the Frog ACEO

My all time favorite from Sleeping Beauty:
Make it Blue Princess Aurora
Or everyone's underdog:
Each one of these gorgeous creations are only $5.  Now wouldn't that be great tucked in an Easter basket?  But wait, there's more . . . they are offering a special this week only.
