my personal 2009 trends: etsy finds

so seeing that is is new years eve, and as of midnight, its a whole new year bringing its own round of joyous occassions (only 303 days til the big day!) and pitfalls and hurdles to overcome i googled my horoscope...

You are greatly empowered in your creative endeavors this year, and you emerge like a butterfly from a long sleep in a cocoon! This personal transformation has you sharing wisdom and knowledge you might have never known you possessed. Great potential awaits you as you find new sources of personal strength.

You are feeling very playful, and being creative is the only type of career that will satisfy you. You will be recognized as someone who can totally transform nothing into something ... an alchemist of sorts. The beauty and magnificence that arises from your self-expression feels like a celebration in and of itself. You will be paid handsomely for what you do, and you welcome the challenges.Your far-reaching ideas will be well compensated. Your optimism helps you stay on the bright path, and you can overcome any hurdle. You see a higher purpose in your work, and this helps you focus on attaining your dreams.

haha! maybe i really can make this a good year for kate cotten designs! ive been looking into glicee prints and expanding it all...which i am already starting! i ordered a WHOLE BUNCH of neat stuff yesterday to test the waters out, and to make sure i have a good variety for the ladies convention at the end of the month!

anywho...since im feeling all giddy and hopeful, i couldnt peg down one common thread i wanted to go with for todays etsy finds. so here is a mish-mash of all things that i want. warning there is an exorbitant amount of...owls. i cant help it, im just drawn to them! can owls be a vice? i mean, surely not, right? i have issues. so here are my new years mash up of awesome etsy finds! enjoy!
