I am hoping everyone is experiencing the sun rays on their face as I am right now. I am going through a period of transition in my life at the moment, just as Mother Earth is, with summer coming our way (or a change of seasons no matter where you are). I feel the need to look around me and be grateful for what I have, be grateful for what Mother Earth gives us. A lot of our needs can be met when we turn to Mother Earth and our relations in nature. We are all connected and can help one another. I find much solace when I go for a walk in nature, when I reconnect with my cousins the trees and hear my siblings the birds sing. It is a beautiful world when one is surrounded by trees and moss, or water. So today the focus of this post, is on natural jewelry, jewelry made with elements found in nature. For it, I turn to Etsy (if you know me you know I buy my jewelry at Pow wows or fairs directly from the artists or on a few trusted sites like Etsy). So please check out the Natural jewelry page on Etsy right now!

Difference makes us but…..in the end we are all related
How’s everyone doing? As I attended a Pow wow not too long ago, I feel fantabulous! I love Pow wows and I am sure you have seen some of my posts about them. The energy of the dancers and the drums, the atmosphere, the artists selling their beautiful products. I love it all! Different nations all unique but coming together to celebrate mother Earth, the music and traditions of the ancestors. And this made me think: are we all different or are we all the same? Well I think it is neither. I think, as the Etsy campaign says Difference Makes Us but! We are also all one. We all have a certain uniqueness but in the end we are all related. So inspired by the the motto of the campaign “celebrate all our un-similarities” I thought I would reflect on what makes me “me” and what do I identify with.

I hope you are all doing fantastic 🙂 Sorry for the lack of posts, life got busy! But I am back tonight with a review of an Etsy shop featuring feathers, feathers, and more feathers! Like glitter, a girl can never have too much glitter 🙂 So let’s talk Native American feather accessories and earrings.
If you have been to my site before, you know I looove Etsy! For those not familiar with Etsy, it is a site where independent artists can sell their work across the world. Therefore, unique products can be found by buyers. One can literally spend hours on Etsy looking up products. However, today I wanted to share with you a few of my favorite products and shops. With Valentine’s day around the corner (yep it’s already less than 2 weeks away….), I thought I would provide some suggestions….It is not an exhaustive list but rather suggestions of a few items and shops to look up. It is really hard to go wrong when shopping on Etsy.
