Etsy Spotlight - Elizabeth Bogardus!

Starting now, every third Friday I'll be listing a Etsy seller!
This month's seller is Elizabeth Bogardus!

and here is little bit about this amazing gal:


~ My name is Elizabeth and I live in New England.
I am a sixth grade teacher who had been stuck at home on disability for 4 years following a bone marrow transplant. That is what has given me more time to be crafty.
I have been on the mend for the last six months finally,
and I hope to be back in a classroom in September.


I am a huge reader and have been fortunate that a couple of publishers found my blog
and send me advance copies to read and review.
In the summer I love to go to New Hampshire where my sister and BIL have a beautiful home
and boat on Lake Winnisquam. I also enjoy going to Ogunquit,
ME every summer with my extended family.



I've always been crafty, learning cross-stitch and sewing in Girl Scouts
and I made most of my Christmas and birthday gifts as a child.
My mom was always trying new things and would then teach them to me:
knitting, crewel, candle making, etc.



I am often inspired by the seasons or holidays.
Sometimes I see a new materials in a store and get excited thinking of ways to use it.
I'm also inspired by the many true artists on etsy and the blogs I visit.

Please name your top 5 favorite blog or web links you like to visit and why.

Well, besides Faerie Dust Dreams, I visit Colorado Lady often. Suzanne is the host of Vintage Thingies Thursday, a long-running meme and I love to share my vintage things and see what others have.

Someday Crafts always has easy tutorials for craft and home decor projects.

Penniwigs has great vintage images and shares at least one daily, so I'm always lurking around to see what's new there.

For Book Reviews I always like to see what Marie is reading at The Burton Review because she loves historical fiction even more than I do.

My guilty pleasure website is Jigidi an online puzzle site where you can make your own puzzles and do the ones that others have made.
