On The Spot : Cathy's Toadily Handmade

Welcome to a new feature on Zen Ventures: On the Spot™ - featuring Creative Artisans and highlighting the items they made with their own skillful hands. My way of giving back to the handmade community. If you've GOT TALENT and want the world to know or you have a new online shop or a veteran needing more exposure for your business, LMK! { as in, Let me know!}

For today's official launching, I'm proud to feature a very creative mom who not only does wonderful blog templates but also has the Midas touch when it comes to yarn! Talented indeed. She just opened her Etsy shop and I'm happy to note that her creations are really cute! So, without further suspense... Today's On The Spot Featured Artisan is:

Just LoOK at some of her adorable CREatiONs!





I toadily love them! The cute dollies which also feature a rattle inside it - for additional fun, are of Amirugumi design: a Japanese style knitted or crocheted dolls. You just gotta love 'em! Perfect for your little one or great Baby Shower gift idea.

And guess what!? As a way of thanking you for being part of this launching, Cathy's Toadily Handmade is giving away this wonderful Neckwarmer valued at $62! Not even listed in her shop yet. The lucky winner will get the very 1st one! How cool is that!?


This Neckwarmer is perfect for the cool weather of Spring! It is made of 100% Australian Merino wool which she guarantees is itch-free and won't shrink! It's hand wash only and lay flat to dry. Perfect Fashionista attire!

  6. Maricris I like the desk organizers also. You asked about the multiple links appearing, I don't have a clue. I did a post one day and there they were. I have noticed that when I went to other people's blogs to comment that a couple of my posts were aslo linked to theirs. But I honestly don't have a clue how to do it. Sorry! lol
