Introduce your Christmas tree to Buffy

Hang it on your Christmas tree. Or your bedpost. Or your rear view mirror. Share the Buffy love!

It is time for PenguinPalooza!

Here's how it works:

I'm on a penguin-making spree. These penguins are multi-tasking - they can be used as decorations (they stand up on their little penguin feet), they can hang on your Christmas tree, and they each have beads inside, making each one a fully-functional rhythm shaker.

I am looking for penguin character ideas, the more creative and crazy the better. To play, just leave a comment with your ideas on this post, or at my facebook page, or at my livejournal. On October 23, I'll draw a random winner from all the ideas, and the winner will win a penguin (custom-designed or one from my shop). The more ideas you give, the more chances you have to win!

I'll take any ideas from the everyday obvious (teacher penguin) to completely off the wall (acrobat penguin with a broken leg)...

If you leave a comment on this blog, please make sure there's a way for me to contact you.

The penguins are in the process of moving into my etsy shop. Check them out! They will also be on display and for sale at the Palmyra Public Library in November and December.

Penguins I've already got include:
Ballerina penguin
Rastafarian penguin
Pizza guy penguin
Rainbow penguin
Film noir penguins
Steelers fan penguins
Shopping penguin
Sunglasses penguin
Clown penguin
Santa penguin
Hippie peace and love penguin
Trick or treating penguins
Vampire slayer penguin
Tangled up in Christmas lights penguin

Leave a comment to win! As many ideas as you want. Thanks for playing!

a couple of contests

My etsy team, EART, is hosting two contests this month, and voting is up for both.

First, there's this photo contest on facebook. You vote by clicking on your favorite photo and typing vote underneath it.

Second, the monthly challenge theme is Victoria Falls. I'm pleased with my Victoria Falls mirror this time around. The voting is at the EART blog.

Thanks for voting!

halloween, baby!

It's Thursday, which means it's time for another EART blog ring. (Let's not discuss the fact that I didn't manage to post any entries between last Thursday and this Thursday...)

The topic is: What's a-goin' on in your shop for Halloween?
And for me the answer is: Why, it's trick-or-treating penguins, of course!

These adorable trick-or-treating penguins are available in my etsy shop. To see what my EART friends have going on for Halloween, start here at IndigoOrchid's blog.

Fall Goals

It's Thursday - time for the EART team blogathon. Our topic today is "Fall Business Goals." Since my life is bordering on out of control at the moment, my goals are simple:

1. Penguins - make lots of them, and host penguin personality ideas contest - STAY TUNED FOR THAT ONE, friends! So far I've got a bunch of fun ones, including ballerina penguin, Rastafarian penguin, trick-or-treating penguin... It's going to be a penguinpalooza (photos coming soon). Also, the penguins will be on display/sale at the Palmyra Public Library starting in November, and 1/3 of each sale will be donated to the library.
2. Get etsy shop in shape with better photos and organization. Fellow etsiers, did you know we can rearrange our shops now?? Woohoo!
3. Start my line of Whedon-inspired items, especially ornaments for Christmastime - ie, get the ideas off the paper and into the clay!
Wish me luck :)
Keep reading, starting with the blog of IndigoOrchidDesigns to see what my EART teammates are planning for fall.
