aHa Marketplace opens August 25th with Grand Giveaways!
The aHa Studios Marketplace is open for business August 25th!!

And to celebrate this momentous occasion all Artisans are participating in a Blog Give-away! This Give-away will run from August 25th through September 12th. The rules are very simple, and you have a chance to win more than one prize.

Here's how it works.

First, each Artisan has posted a picture of our give-away prize clearly marked on our blogs. Next we have all chosen a random number.

All you have to do is post a comment under each prize picture (make sure to leave your email address so we can notify you). Now, if your comment corresponds with the Artisan's chosen number, then hooray, you win the prize for that blog. So, the more comments you post, the more chances you have to win! Easy!

Each of us have listed our fellow Artisans on our blogs, so all you have to do is follow the list from blog to blog, find the prize and comment. What could be easier?

All contest prizes will be posted on August 25th!

Good luck and Thank You for participating in the American Holiday Artist's Studio Marketplace Great Give-away!

"STOMP" Collecting


Some women collect dolls. Some collect vintage fabrics (I know one personally, me). Some women even collect husbands (I know one of those too). And some women collect shoes...

This is a short (or lengthy depending how much you love a great pair of shoes), blog about a good friend of mine, here in the Las Vegas area, obsession with shoes. Not to be cofused with a dealing box designed to hold several decks of playing cards, but possibly just as expensive.

I have been asked to help clear out her double walk-in closet. Yes, I wrote "double" walk-in closet. She has the best taste and an appetite for very nice, fashion savvy apparel. I am sure with every item sold, another will replace it...but what fun we will have!

Stay with me here and follow the journey as I am listing name brand shoes, handbags and clothing (top of the line) for her at And please feel free to contribute to her cause if you see anything you "need".

I have placed a link to her beautiful things on the right of this blog, under lebudhz. Just click and shop from home. She is offering low starting bids and "free", USPS shipping on all her items. (The listing begins tonight at 9 PM, Pacific Time.)
