National Ice Cream Month

I hope everyone had a wonderful 4th of July!!  

Things here have been pretty busy.  I have 2 of the 3 new charms of the month complete and am working on the 3rd.  I will be posting the pictures as soon as I have them all done.  The monthly shipments will be running a bit laet but I think they will be worth it : ).

In the mean time, I wanted to share one July creation and winner with you, and I want to introduce you to EscargotArtsyBits on Etsy.

  First, here is our first Ice Cream month winner Tearyeyedstar suggested snow cones.  I have been meaning to do snow cones for a while now :)

Thank you so much for the suggestion!
The other winners will be announced throughtout the month. 

August is National Peach month. You can start making  suggestions for foods with peaches. 

Escargot Atsy Bits

Escargot Artsy Bits is a wonderful business created by Sara Rask.  She does amazing collage pendants.  I have seen tile pendants all over Etsy with photos, but I was amazed by the detail of these little collages. 

Her work is beautiful and unique.  I love the colors she puts together.  Every little collage is a work of art. 

I must say that her customer service is amazing!  
I contacted her asking if she was willing to do special orders, and she has been a delight to work with.

I was unsure of what I wanted exactly, but I wanted her to make pendants of images of my miniature foods.   
 She made me many wonderful pendants, and she was very attentive through the whole proccess.  She was extreemely quick in answering all of my convos and requests.  I was planning on showing you all of the wonderful pieces she made for me, but her collages are so pretty that I really wanted to share them with you instead.

Here is the link to her store.  She is a wonderful seller! http://www.etsy.com/shop/EscargotArtsyBits?ref=seller_info
