The OC and Midnight Snack

It wont be long now before the Glitterati are all spotted toting around our Oven Roasted Turkey Plush. The OCWeekley blog has featured us along with some other pretty cool Thanksgiving themed products. Since they pinpoint all the hot activities and trends of the area, we think it's pretty neat that we've been spotted! Maybe we wont see the Oven Roasted Turkey Plush being toted down the red carpet any time soon, but we think it's perfect for your fabulous Thanksgiving table!

And don't forget that we will be at the Etsy Dallas Jingle Bash November 21st from 11 am to 7 pm. And YES the turkeys will be there!

The Return of the Turkey

Last season these stuffed turkeys flew off our shelves, so we decided to bring him back a little early this year! Now I know you've barely gotten your Halloween decorations down but Thanksgiving is only 6 weeks away! You'll want to get your order in for a stuffed turkey early so you can enjoy him all season!
Each turkey is handmade by me. These turkeys are life size and will look great as a centerpiece until the real bird is ready to go. They can also be used as pillows or toys.

Front Page feature and changes for Midnight Snack

I've been horribly neglecting you. Please forgive me, we're still in the middle of our move. We finally bought a house and moved out of that tiny apartment. I'm still shopping around for cool things to put into my new craft room and get my new workspace up and running!

Even though very few new things have come out of my studio lately, I was thrilled to see our Conversation heart pillow on the front page last week! Thanks to corrieberrypie for putting together such a lovely treasury. And I have to admit I'm quite a bit jealous of some of her own beautiful pieces. She really puts colors together very well and I was very pleased that we were chosen to round out her treasury.

I've been itching to get back into the studio and as soon as new things emerge I will put them up for all to see!

KERA Art & Seek Review

The Etsy Dallas Spring Bash went off without a hitch and Midnight Snack's first ever full fledged craft fair was a huge success! We got some great feedback, got to meet tons of great people and artists, and had a blast selling our products. Best of all, we got some awesome press.

KERA Art & Seek blogger Lydia Regalado interviewed several Etsy Dallas members for a review of the show. The review was released today and guess who nabbed the only photo in the article! That's right, Midnight Snack! Read the full review here. Thanks to Lydia for such a great review and thanks to the Etsy Dallas leadership team who put in hours and hours of work to make this show a success.

Fruits of my labor

In the spirit of becoming less dependent on the grocery store and saving a buck I've been growing some berries and peppers in pots on my balcony. Since everything I've ever attempted to grow has died, the success of these plants is thrilling for me. Pretty soon I'll have my very own strawberries for snacking. To celebrate, here are some of my favorite strawberry items!

Go Team!

Etsy Dallas has just announced it's official 2009 roster. They've gone to only allowing 60 members per year so spots were very limited. I'm happy to announce that Midnight Snack made the team. I am so excited to get to participate in the team events this year. The next big thing for Etsy Dallas is it's Spring Bash on May 16th so mark your calendars to come and see all the fantastic vendors this year!

Finds That Make Me Happy

Lately I've needed to find some joy and beauty in the world to turn my gloomy attitude around. Luckily I have to look no farther than Etsy to find some beautiful hand crafted items to make me smile.

I just bought this gorgeous wrap top from Sandmaiden:

My first venture into handmade cosmetic is this lavender concealer by ErzulieCosmetics which I adore:

I've got my eye on this adorable Prop Top by Undertheroot:

Just some pretties that have made me smile over the last few weeks, and I hope you've been able to find something to smile about, too.

An Etsy Christmas

Welcome back everyone! We hope everyone had a fantastic holiday and are gearing up for an exciting new year! We certainly enjoyed our few weeks off of real life work as well as time off from the store. It's just what we needed to dive into our newest projects. Before we get into our new projects here I'd like to brag on several Etsy sellers who provided some of my favorite Christmas gifts this season.

Here are some of my new favorite things:

This adorable beret is perfect for the cold days. I'm still waiting for one so I can wear it.

This gingham flower looks adorable in my single stem vase at work.

This pincushion ring has been a real life saver for me!

I love my new bloomers, mine are orange! The pair I gave as a gift were a hit, too!

Thanks, Etsy, for all the wonderful things you have everyday!
