Erin sells "Yellow Apple" Miniature Watercolor, Dove Origami Ornament and "Red Apple" Miniature Watercolor.
Want to get to know a little bit more about Erin? She says, "I love my mom, MMM Bop, blue, hot chocolate, warm blankets, my Nana, Burn Notice, starfish, my mom's meatloaf, pretty things, my five brothers, and brains. I am proud to be an all around geek. I’m a psychology major and a school-aholic. When I’m not studying I try to exercise the right hemisphere of my brain by creating. I dabble in music, writing, painting, clay, drawing, and Origami. My way of coping with my tough childhood is to keep busy. I try channel my focus on something positive and constructive. When I get down, and it can be hard not to at times, I just remember my goals in life and how my success would be the greatest vengeance against my abuser, and an encouragement for others who have been in similar situations."

A Word from the Artist: Palm wax burns cleaner than traditional waxes. Emitting almost no soot, it is a healthier alternative to paraffin. It is natural and vegan, like soy, but palm wax is harder and burns longer. The palm wax can also hold more fragrance oil and has a stronger scent throw, so you can better enjoy the fantastic smell.
A Word from the Artist: "I've made these calendars to last for your family's enjoyment for years to come. The last thing we need is more mass produced advent calendars going into landfills after this holiday season. I believe that this will become a lasting part of your family’s holiday tradition.”

Worn more often by the younger generation of Italians, both men and woman. The bright colors run the risk of appearing too juivenile, but Italians pull the look off with dark wash skinny jeans and leather jackets
Probably the most obvious trend on the Italian streets, these puffy, quilted coats are both warm and light. Many are made of down and run at expensive prices, but I have seen plenty on sale for much cheaper.High Laced Boots
I have seen in style in various heights and colors. It seems to be more of a spring trend and can be paired with jeans or leggings on colder days or dresses when it is warm.
