Alaska Hot Doggies is a Life Long Alaskan who love to marble anything she can get her hands on. Many of the items featured in her shop are living their second life, like beautiful clothing or lampshades, through marbling, coloring or just re-working. I think this talent comes from a deep resourcefulness to know how to make things adjust for you in life, like adapting to the Alaskan winters! Recycling found items into beautiful pieces is something she strives for. Just look at her marbles shoes! I just loves these! It looks like something I might find in one of the more trendy stores for $150.00! You gotta admire girl who uses a picture of herself taking a picture of herself in one of her Etsy pics for a neckwarmer! Finding unique and quality items is a guarantee at her Etsy shop. The best part about Alaska Hot Doggies Etsy's shop is the rare and wonderful fact that you can find both items for men as well as women! Her re-worked leather bands/bracelets are just the perfect blend of strength mixed with clever style and clean lines. Plus she is obviously in it for the art, as she prices are so very very low! So check out :Etsy :: AkHotDoggies :: an adventure in color thru found items and have an ADVENTURE IN COLOR!

These are two pictures of Tammie setting up at the Portland Gift Show this last Jan. There was no lighting in the convention center during set up so it is very dark. The other is pic. of Marty, Betsy and I showing off the new weight set Marty made (machined out). It took no less than 40 minutes for my computer to download these three pics, and I dont know tech stuff so I dont know why, I even made it small file size. So the pics are arranged a little discombobulated. Today I will be in the Roses! Silver roses that is as I am working on the Portland Rose Garden order. Very fun.

Well roll me in honey and send me out to the Acme Feather company, I POSTED A PICTURE! pretty soon I will be doing other new fangled things like texting. I am on the phone with a Lawyer to get my name protected like copyrighted and trademarked. My business name silly.... Apparently there is a New York Company with my same name, and I have been told that even thought i have been in business for 7 years longer than them, they could copyright the name and legally demand that I change mine. I have not wanted to bother with this for years, believing in others best, but my staff if really not letting me off the hook! So to give them and I guess me ease of mind, I am protecting my business name. Can't hurt. I just hate sounding pretentious....

OK! My Etsy :
Shop is getting more and more things on it! It sure takes time! I decided to have fun and "romance" the description a bit. I am going to (when I have the time) write a short story about each item in it's description. This is purely for entertinment value as I know I am not a writer of any sorts. I am sure people will take two things from it- one- artists are allowed to be playful and silly without taking themselves, or their art, too seriously. And two- it might be worth a giggle to see what's next!
On the personal side- My kids were all in a great mood last night so we played Monopoly for 4 (FOUR) hours! My son is very sleepy!

Greetings! This is my first (and Boring) post! I am going to post about what is going on with my business, elizabethjewelry.com, ask questions about everything under the sun, and hopefully connect with some future friends.
For starters- ask me anything in the subject of jewelry and fashion! If I don't have a good answer I will try to point you to a place that does!
Have a great day!
