Shop Feature: Let's Go Lesco Photos

This weeks shop Feature is Let's go Lesco Photos by Michelle Lesco from Sydney, Australia. What I like about this shop is that she captures the natural beauty photography. It's nice to see the landscape photos that she does. I tend you like Ocean scenes alot, as it feels very relaxing to me. Maybe that is why I love the beach and like to live close to the ocean as much as possible. No wonder I live in La Jolla! And its' also why the first two beach pictures are my favorites from her shop

Michelle also does custom photos too. So if you have that special memory you want to treasure or have it in a frame, she is your go to gal for this kind of work as well. I still believe photography is wonderful to have in your home. Not just the ones where you snap it on your digital camera or iphone... real quality  likes the ones Michelle has at her shop can really  brighten up the place. Get to know her more through this feature. :)

1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?

Let's Go Lesco Photos is a combination of an old nickname and what I love. "Let's Go Lesco" was something friends and teachers used to call to me regularly growing up. name. While others heard “Excuse me, Ms. So and So….” For me it was “Hey Lesco!” Always. My shop name reflects who I am and where I've been.

2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?

My shop is filled with only natural beauty. I don't believe in heavily editing anything--that would make your art lost it natural, organic essence. I prefer to let the originality and nature of my subject take prevalence.

Shop Feature: Fanie's Boutique

This week's shop Feature is Fanie's Boutique.  The shop sells greeting cards, artwork, and cartoon art. I love the cartoon art she has on display at her shop it brings me back memories of  how fun cartoons were back in those times. I could really be a kid back then! My favorite item is the Dragon greeting card is has there. I love how it matches the banner of her shop too, way too cute!  I don't think I could even give that dragon card away. It be just a card I collect unless she were to  give a whole box of dragon's cards!  ;)

Well here are some more details about Fanie and her work! there's also a funny video she included for laughs.  Enjoy today's post everyone!

1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?
For the moment, my shop's name is Fanie's Boutique, because it's my name! :-)
Fanie is also a very young and cute name in french. So it fit with my drawing style!

2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?
I really enjoy creating cute cartoons and funny drawings. There are always little "stories" happening in my drawing. I never draw something just for it to be funny, there are always stories happening.
I love to make useful and whimsical items with my drawings. Like greeting cards, posters and .PDF files.
I also love to draw comics, so I'll be making more comics, this year. :-)

Candle Magic Tip 4: Add Different Oils To Your Candle Magic

Did you know that you could get creative with your oils?  Sometimes  It's not about using the recommending oil listed  but to go  with what feels right to you.  I often have combined the  oils on the outside  of the  candle to give it a bigger boost to manifest things  a bit faster for myself.

Here are a few ideas:

For Love candles  try a combination of my love and Romance oil,  it gives such a nice lift of energy... really helps give the positive feeling.   If you're in a relationship and you are having a hard time resolving your issues  with your partner try combining some love oil and healing oil on the outside of the candle. This will help  release those blockages to help you connect  better  with each other.  I have to say the Romance oil is a more intense oil to use for  the toughest situations. This oil takes me 2 months for me to make but its all worth it. If you really need to bring that  loving feeling back try the Romance oil with these love candles.

Shop Feature Basmati Bags

Our Shop Feature this week is Basmati Bags. I have to say that the quality of these bags are impeccable.  I love the quality of them and the fabric she is using is very nice. Lovely bags , I can tell them are done very nice.   Here's more about this little shop.  Enjoy! :)

1) How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?

The name of our company came about through irony. Basmati Bags started because the owner (Sara T.) was frustrated that she needed a new bag and couldn't find anything that was both functional, fashionable, and environmentally conscious. But her roommate at the time was an interior designer who had a whole bunch of beautiful fabric samples, and Sara had a whole bunch of burlap food packaging from the all the basmati rice she'd been before she knew what was happening, she was making her own functional ecochic bags. And the rest is history.

Review on Angel Tarot by Doreen Virtue

 I'm not the biggest fan of Tarot  but I have to say that  I  have always loved  cards made by Doreen Virtue and this deck is  no exception.  I have  always  connected to  Angel  cards  faster. The messages I get from  doing angel cards are much more clearer and  I pick up messages  much more  intuitively. Either way Angel cards have always  been my thing plus when  this deck came out I just knew it a good deck for me to work with.

Shop Feature: SecretScentSociete

This weeks' shop feature is Secret Scent Societe by tori Jackson. She makes candles and soaps. There is a reed diffusers too which is very neat! the  scents are lovely but I love reed diffusers though! :) On to read a  bit more about her.

1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?

I wanted my business name to show that it was a luxury brand and reflect the mystery, the beauty, and the intrigue of fragrance. SecretScentSociete is a shortened version of The Secret Scent Societe' which was slightly too long to use on Etsy.

2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?
I use luxurious, natural, eco friendly ingredients with an emphasis on strong design and creating beautiful, one of a kind fragrances. I also offer a bespoke service where I will create a candle for you in your choice of colour/s, candle container, and signature scent.
