Most of you know that I am a huge fan of jewelry!! OK, I admit I do have a slight addiction to it, but it could be worse. Anyway.
I recently discovered an Etsy Shop called #SunnySideDesign. Angel's designs are gorgeous!! I received my bracelet and I instantly fell in love with it. It is made with Sterling Silver Wire and hand-stamped Sterling Silver Charms. Each bracelet is fully customizable so you can decide what you want your bracelet to say about YOU!! Necklaces are also available!!
For my bracelet, I chose two of the larger size charms "Rescued by LadyBug" and "Loved by Chloe", a "Dog" charm, a "Double Heart" charm, a "Dog Paw" charm...and one very special "AngelWings" charm in memory of my Zippo.
Oh, and can we just talk for a sec on how freakin' CUTE this packaging is??? SO adorable!!
I love the fact that I can always order more charms to further customize my bracelet or to change it up a bit...for instance...should I acquire another dog or cat!! (hint, hint to my husband!!) The very special part of Angel's shop is that a portion of each and every sale is donated back to animal rescue organizations. The Rescue Me Line was inspired by Angel's own family experience adopting their own adorable pup, Cooper.
This is a very nice, high quality piece that is well worth the price! I am so pleased with my special, personalized bracelet from SunnySideDesign and I would not hesitate to recommend the shop!! One of her designs would make an awesome gift for someone special!!

Today, we are going to look at Holiday Cards!! I'd love to share a few with you that I have created...
If you are interested in holiday cards that do not have photographs...they have TONS of them too!! Here are a few designs that I have picked out...just to give you a feel for what Minted has to offer:
I am sure that this gives you a really good idea of the broad spectrum of designs that Minted Artists have to offer.
2 1/2 cups garbanzo flour
2 1/2 tablespoons peanut butter
2 large eggs
3/4 cup canned pumpkin puree
1. Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F. In a medium bowl, add the garbanzo flour, peanut butter, eggs and pumpkin puree. Mix until completely combined.
2. The dough will be sticky, so flouring everything is important: the wax paper, rolling pin, cookie cutter and your hands. Transfer the dough to the floured piece of wax paper and roll the dough to a 1/4-inch thickness. Cut out the cookies using a cookie-cutter of choice. Re-roll the scraps and cut out more cookies. (I used the pumpkin and dauschund cookie cutter and ended up with about 16 cookies.)
3. Transfer the cookies to a parchment-lined baking sheet. These cookies won’t spread so you can place them close together without worrying. NOTE: If you don’t want to roll out the dough, you can always scoop a teaspoon of dough onto a baking sheet, flattening the cookie a bit and baking it from there.
4. Bake the cookies for 30 to 40 minutes or until golden brown. Allow the cookies to come to room temperature on a cooling rack. Cookies will be good for up to 2 weeks in an airtight container.
Makes 16 cookies
