Sci Fi Series Jewelry Accessories

Lightsaber Crystal Earrings

A couple of months ago I watched a movie called "Trekkies", a film about the devoted fans and the phenomena of the Star Trek franchise. As I watched this documentary and recalled the fun times I had attending Star Trek conventions when I was younger (yes, I did that and no I didn't dress up - but only because I didn't have a costume), I thought "What am I doing selling beads? I should be selling Star Trek stuff!" I have always loved space related science fiction, I saw "Star Wars" six times in the movie theater when it came out back in 1977!!

Yet, I have all these beads, and I love beads too! Then the "Creativity Muse" visited me and voila I combined my two passions!
Sci Fi Ray Gun Earrings

This Science Fiction Ray Gun was created with a bunch of left over beads that I have in my "orphans" box. I have never been this excited about something I made. I have some other ideas in store as well, so let's see what 'strange new world' I discover with this Sci Fi series of jewelry and accessories!!

Modern Florida Art Mixed with Rural Past

The Florida Etsy Street Team
This last weekend I attended the Florida Market Days Fundraiser and Holiday Party at the Florida Agricultural Museum in Palm Coast, Florida. This was a wonderful and fun event that featured many Florida Etsy Street Team members. Our Team Captain Rose and other members did a terrific job of organizing and coordinating this event, and it was held in a spectacular rural setting at the Agricultural Museum, which is rich with Florida History.

Florida Agricultural Museum
The Museum is a fully restored pioneer homestead from the 1890s with farm animals, hayride tour, and a wealth of historical information of the early days in Florida.

Frosty the Snowman
The weather was good on Sunday and the atmosphere was full of winter holiday fun, complete with Frosty the Snowman blowing snow to greet you at the barn door!

Santa and Mrs. Claus
And of course Santa and Mrs. Claus were there to see all of the kids, both big and small, to find out if you were good or bad and what you wanted for Christmas!

Florida Etsy Streat Team Members were among many crafters that attended to display and sell their art and Holiday creations.

Poptabilicious features unique items made with Pop Tabs or Soda Can tabs, a great Eco-friendly gift!

GypSea Blue Bags
GypSea Blue Bags brings you bicycle accessories and hand bags that are a little bit of gypsy and a little bit of hippie mixed with a touch of shabby chic and a dash of diva!

Tessie Textile
Tessie Textile features potholders and mug rugs to quilts and wall hangings for the home, all hand sewn with love!

Twisted K's Jewelry
One of our newest Florida Etsy Street Team members is Twisted K's Jewelry, with beautiful handmade jewelry gifts.
Santa's Elves drawing numbers for the Raffle
Along with Shopping for gifts and visiting with Santa Claus, there were Raffle Drawings held every hour for prizes that were donated by the FEST team members from all over the state.

SWAG bags
Team members also sent in samples, business cards and discount coupons that filled the SWAG bags that were given out to everyone who attended.

Face Painting
There was an area just for kids with different games to play and other fun activities including face painting by Santa's Elves!!

Fun Holiday Games
Holiday realated games included ring toss and bean bag toss! They were not so easy, actually, but lots of fun!!

Crafts for Kids
A craft table was set up for children to make crafts or cards, and Etsy Team members were available to assist the youngsters and encourage them with their handmade creations.

If you missed this fun event, or you were just too far away, then I hope you enjoyed this visual tour of a really fun day and perhaps you will visit some of these shops or visit our Florida Etsy Street Team Blog.

Go Team FEST and Etsy!
