Into a New Year

'Tis a new year full of possibilities.  2010 was a good year.  It was a year of learning among other things for me.  I believe I am poised well to start off this 2011.

This morning I awoke to an array of harmonized handmade.  Amy Busch aka Sunshine Girl created this compilation on Etsy:

Amy's own one of a kind accessories and decorations made of felt are available in her shop: Soleil Girl

Featured alongside the Hope Keepsake Gift Box from la Naváa are peacefully hued creations from fellow artisans on Etsy.

The romantic Baby Blue Lace Cuffs (on sale now) were made by Mariana and Paula, of Branda.  Incredibly enough, Branda's creations are made "by eye" instead of patterns.  This technique was taught to Mariana and Paula by their grandmother when they were children.  Quite remarkable I'd say.

I'd also like to say that quite a remarkable year is ahead, hopefully for all.  As for la Naváa, many new things coming, new shops and promotions.  This week I'll be announcing January's contest... yes, monthly contests for 2011!

And... birthstone jewelry!  I have a number of Garnet styles currently on my creation table. 

I wish everyone joy in the new year.  May many new and wonderful things come.
