Made It To The Front Page of Etsy!

Any Etsy seller knows the absolute icing on the cake at Etsy is to be featured on the very front page. Today, TIDBIT - Striped Sock Monkey was selected as one of the 12 handpicked items out of hundreds of thousands to grace the ever coveted front page! I would like to thank laylaloustudio for including me in this eye-catching treasury! Thank you!! Be sure to visit her shop, it is filled with paper lovliness, art and prints she designs to make people smile!

Welcome to Indy and Cleo!

My first blog post EVER!

creative |krēˈātiv|   adjective relating to or involving the imagination or original ideas, esp. in the production of an artistic work

My artistic talents have led to an interest in all things creative, and I am constantly inspired with fun and whimsical ideas and materials. Here, I will share those inspirations and ideas.

The title for my blog page came from my two wonderful Cavalier King Charles Spaniels named Indiana Jones and Cleopatra. They absolutely make me smile each and every day! Not only are the dogs the inspiration for the blog title, but you can also see and purchase their individual portraits from my Etsy shop, also named IndyAndCleo!

Speaking of dogs . . . here is a favorite dog related quote:

to err is human, to forgive is canine
- unknown
