ArtYah a new selling site

Good morning friends! Today I would like to share a new selling site that many of my friends are joining. It is an "all handmade site" with great customer service. The site is called ARTYAH.
John and I decided to open a shop ( Thunder Rose) on ArtYah and we really like the site. Many of us artists are all about handmade and not really interested in manufacturing out our beautiful art that we have worked so hard to create for many years. We have always enjoyed being one of a kind and taking care of our customers ourselves. We know when we make a handmade item for you it is going to be the best of us and not someone else's hands in the making of it. That said I would like you to also know that vintage and supplies are also part of ArtYah's site. That is so awesome! 
Today I am going to share a few of my ArtYah friends! 
So if you are an artist and love selling your handmade goods , vintage or supplies come by and check out the details.
If you are a buyer and would like to check us out come on by.




I love this wooden folk art wall hanging. Everytime you look at this it brings joy to your heart. It is so fun!

What fun it is to have your own personal favorite tape measure in your sewing room. I adore these. I know in my shop I love having fun personal items for my enjoyment. Oh and what a great gift for a friend!

Do you do yoga? I do and these are a really great idea for those winter months when you need a little warmth while you are on the floor doing your yoga. Love these!

<><><><>







Isn't this just the cutest wall hanging . I can see this in a nursery or a child's special room . It is so comforting and adorable. What a great gift for a new mom or a toddler's birthday.

This is a purple phone bag from my shop.  A great as a crossbody bag where you can keep your phone and a few other items when you are at a festival or out on the town.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look.
Be sure and check out all the great items on ArtYah!

Blessings!

A New Project

First of all I want to say I have turned off google + comments on my blog. Mostly because I want for anyone to be able to post a comment without having to sign up for google +. So I did loose all the comments I have ever had on this blog but that's okay. They are all in the past and it's a new day and what a good place to be, in the present moment. 
The title of the blog post is a new project and that is what I am up too. I am creating a website thunderrose.co. It is real new so I don't have a lot on it just yet. 
This is my way to feel like I have something that someone else (corporate America) doesn't have control of in our business life. Sometimes you just get everything going in a good direction and some ceo or programmer decides to totally go in a different direction and there you are. Don't get me wrong I am good with change and know it is a necessary part of life but  I also feel a need to create something new. 
I am not upset or talking about any one person or place in particular just have this need to do something different, call it divine inspiration. 
Just like my garden. I just spent about a month with my friend John who is Hopi Tewa  . He is a real inspiration for me and my gardening. He has been gardening for a long time in the permaculture way and teaches it.  I have been an organic gardener  for the last 40 years. Sometimes having a garden and sometimes not. But I would never use chemicals that I know would give me , my family or animals cancer or make them real sick. That is a no brainer to me and always has been.
Going green is something that we started doing in the 70's.
It has just became popular and thank goodness for that. He told me about a book he read that I am currently reading it is called
The One - Straw Revolution. I just got started reading it. 
But while he was here I learned more about gardening than I ever have from any of the people who are master gardeners with certificates. He showed me and talked to me. Thanks you so much John! 
I wanted to say about that much for now. I love my leather and beads and I am keeping everything going just how it is but I am creating something new for my business which totally is a family affair with John and I and my garden which brings me great joy!
Let the magic begin!
If you would like to check out my new website project go here

We also have our bags on our other website

Speaking about magic. There is hummingbird magic in my gardens.
Did you know they are good listeners.
As I stood watering my garden they would dance around me. They would sit right there in mid air and look at the water coming from the hose. They are so playful and beautiful!
In their honor here is one that I beaded.

Purple Handmade Passion

Those of you who know me know I love purple. It is my favorite color. Although I do love all the colors and how we can put them together in our art and create amazing items.  
I have decided to revamp all my blogs. I have several and each one has a purpose. This blog is the blog I started out on many years ago. It has went through a lot of changes over the years. 
I decided that I wanted to try out a word press blog and I loved blogging there. So my 
Thunder Rose Blog lives there. 
Then I created my Etsy team Rainbow Artists and I loved wordpress so much that I decided to blog my team there. 
But to be honest I love blogspot too. I learned about blogging here. I guess you could say I have a little attachment to where everything started for me. In the beginning I was so worried about what to say and how to to it. But I jumped in anyway. Lucky for me everything was very user friendly. I got involved in a couple blog rings along the way , which was pretty cool.  I have learned over time that I enjoy blogging for others but I still need to promote myself. I am really grateful to Tim from Handmadeology for the treasury tool he made for us. 
Now I can blog for myself and add a really great treasury filled with my Etsy friends. How cool is that. 
I would like to suggest to all our friends that having a blog is a fantastic idea for your business. You just need to create one and let your inspiration flow. Start slow and you will more than likely end up loving it. One thing to remember is pictures don't really search but text does. So always remember to do a write up of some kind with great keywords so you will get found by just the right people in search.

On one of my favorite teams and I have several favs. On Fire For Handmade is one I have been on for along time and now am a leader on. It has grown so much and is a wonderful team. This week we are celebrating the color purple so I found some really fantastic items in purple just for you. 
First of all I am going to show you one of my purple leather bags then a a wide variety of beautiful handmade items like purple beaded jewelry, unique purple lamps, purple home decor, purple hats , purple cards and so much more.



Now for the stunning amazing collection of purple I found...............
