We have come across an awesome discovery! We have found Coprolite, or what we like to say… Dino Poo! Of course it is fossilized and they look and feel like rocks… it’s just that these rocks look like poop, LOL!
ANYWHO… We have literally come across a giant pile of crap! 😀 We have found them in many sizes, from small to ginormous!! Right now I have some of the smaller coprolite listed in my etsy shop. We have been selling a “crap load” of coprolite on ebay, and I wanted to see how well they did on etsy. We have cut into several pieces and have found many with the rare crystallization, which make them look like geodes. They also have some very pretty coloration in them too with reds, yellows, and even purple!
We have had a paleontologist friend take a look at them and they seem to think they come from Raptors. We have done some research and have found out that they come from the Triassic period which was 203 to 250 million years ago! And, recently as we were picking up some more specimens we found some Dinosaur bones, including claws and turtle shell. So, needless to say we were ecstatic to verify that we really were finding coprolite!
By clicking on the pictures, it will take you to the listing in my etsy shop. The second picture is an example of the variety of cuts we have made.
Also, we are not willing to share the location of where we find these, so please don’t ask. Thanks!
On another note… my black skull rings are BACK IN STOCK in my shop! And I’m planning on listing one in Antique Silver later on today! So be sure to check out my shop!
That’s right! I am planning a ONE DAY ONLY DOLLAR SALE on ALL of my coffee cozies in my etsy shop!!! I’m ready to add some new stock into my shop, but before I do, I really need to dwindle down on my coffee cozy inventory. So what better way than to just make them all ONE DOLLAR?!?! So be sure to tell all your friends… or you can buy a bunch of them and GIVE them to your friends :). They make great gifts!
So on TUESDAY JULY 3RD be sure to head on over to my etsy shop and SHOP, SHOP, SHOP! Cuz this sale will only last ONE DAY!!! Mark it on your calendars :).
I am having a HALF PRICE SALE on several of my items in my etsy shop… mostly the coffee cozies! It’s time to clear out my stash and make room for new items :). So for this Memorial Day Weekend ONLY I’m having a sale! The prices have already been marked down so no need to type in any coupon codes. I hope you all have a great weekend!!

I know, I know… I haven’t been keeping up with the Tuesday’s Talent! But I remembered today!! 🙂
Today’s Tuesday’s Talent etsy shop is True Treats Bakery. Kristan makes the most wonderful treats for your pets… not that I have ever tasted them, but all 3 of my dogs have and they LOVE them!! She makes dog treats, cat treats, and horse treats… She specializes in making treats Gluten free, Grain free, or Whole Grain for whatever type of needs your pet has. And they are always made with healthy ingredients and most importantly, freshness!! She also makes the treats into some really cute shapes such as hearts, bones, and stars… she even makes cupcakes which are great for when your dog has a birthday!
So if you like to spoil your pets rotten, then you definitely need to go check out her etsy shop!
Kristan also has an etsy shop where she sells Abstract Paintings and other Paper Goods!
I love nature and all its beauty! The other day I was outside in the backyard with the dogs and on one of the trees I saw this beautiful bird. So I thought I would quickly run inside and grab my camera and hope it doesn’t fly away in the mean time! Well, I made it back in time and here’s what I got…
Yes, I realize it is not Tuesday and that it is indeed Thursday! (Right?? LOL!). And yes, I realize I have not been doing the Tuesday’s Talent every week… I’ve been busy. ANYwho!! Today’s Talented etsy shop that I have chosen is UniqueGreetings. The owner of the shop is Susan, and she makes the most beautiful cards!! I had bought one last year for my Mom’s birthday, and when I received it in the mail, I was absolutely amazed with how beautiful the card was… and instead of writing a note inside the card like I normally would in a plain ole Hallmark card, I just could not write on this card… it was too pretty!! So instead I wrote a note on a separate piece of paper and stuck that inside the card :). Once my Mom received her birthday card from me, she said it was the most beautiful card she has ever received!
This card is very similar to the card I got for my Mom’s birthday. Susan makes cards for just about any occasion, so if there’s a holiday or birthday coming up, you should definitely check out her etsy shop first!
And since Valentine’s Day is coming up, maybe you can get that someone special in your life a beautiful card that they will cherish forever!
I have been trying out some projects using chunky yarn. Now that I have the right kind of crochet hook, I absolutely love working with chunky yarn!! For Christmas I had gotten a “Knifty Knitter” from my Grandma… she had bought it for herself to use a few years ago to make some hats, but never got around to it, so she passed it onto me!
So I decided to start with something easy like a hat. I will have to do some searching online for other cool patterns. Now when I was starting out with the hat, I had to start over a few times, but once I got the hang of it (and read the directions correctly!! LOL!) it was super easy!!
And of course when I made the hat, I had to make a scarf that matched!! But instead of a cowl scarf like I usually do, I decided to make just a regular long scarf but use 2 different colors. I personally think they turned out great! And they are SO SOFT!! Oh, and I of course have both the hat and the scarf available for sale in my etsy shop :).
