BESTeam Feature - Your Daily Jewels

After more than a week of being sick with the flu (aarrgghh!) I am back with this week's BESTeam feature on Your Daily Jewels.

Norah is the owner of Your Daily Jewels.  She is a physical therapist, treating children with disabilities.  Years ago she needed a reward system for some of her younger patients and she began making simple jewelry for them.  The pieces were a big hit and she discovered a new creative outlet. 

Today, she is a self taught jeweler and she spends most of her free time learning about and making modern glamorous and adffordable jewelry for women to wear everyday.  She infuses as much color as possible into her pieces.

And while checking out her shop I found a rainbow of colors!  And there is so much more so be sure to check it out for yourselves!

BESTeam Feature - All About Cats

Linda is the owner of All About Cats Etsy shop where she sells handmade organic catnip toys and items for humans who love cats.  She lives in Vermont and was brought up on a small farm in the town of Stratford, VT.  Where she and her siblings used to go horseback riding, skiing and hiking.  She has a love of nature that was passed on from her mother as well as her creativeness.  Her favorite crafts are sewing and painting.  And she has been enjoying her retirement because it allows her to nurture her creative side.

I am an animal lover and can't help but love some of the things in her well as somethings my cat (and my ferret) might like!

 I run a pet sitting business and always looking for something to carry around my business cards...this would be perfect!  And the key fob would be great to separate my cat customer keys from my dog customers.
