Over 1300 Flowers September 10, 2010

Yes, you read that right!!  I have been busy busy creating gobs and gobs of 1″ flowers…I will use some of these on my own creations, but will also offered them sold as die cuts in my shop.  Any opinions?  Should I lump some of the colors together (all red or all yellow) or sell them in color families (blues, greens, pinks, etc), or maybe sell them as themes (pink, green, aqua, purple)??  Ideas are much appreciated!!!  🙂

Color Names:

top row from left – watermelon, rusty rose, lilac, bluegrass

middle row from left – lakeshore, limeade, arizona, lagoon, berry berry

bottom row from left – leapfrog, sunbeam, marigold, baby blues

(Please note that the color names are more true to the actual color of the flowers than the picture is.  I will alter photo to look closer to true color when listing in my shop.)


An Addiction – of a Different Kind… April 21, 2009

So, many people have addictions in life…Some are very sad – drugs, alcohol, tobacco, gambling, sex, etc….I have an addiction as well, and while some may think it is sad, I think it’s just FUN!!!  Nevertheless, I am addicted to it and can’t seem to get enough of it – PAPER!!  I probably have as much in my stock of paper as a Michael’s store and I’m not kidding!!! 

Get this – sometimes I buy it just because I like it, but I’ll have no idea what I want to use it for and other times, I’ll buy a HUGE pack of it and know that I will never use the whole pack. 


WHAT ARE YOUR FUN ADDICTIONS??  I’m dying to find out.  Please tell me I’m not the only one with a FUN addiction!! 


SO, my addiction becomes the advantage of my Etsy customers.  I have decided to purge some of my stash and sell it to others.  I’ve done some research on paper sellers on Etsy, and I think that my prices will be TOTALLY reasonable, but let me know if you find it cheaper!

Here are a couple collections that I am planning on listing in my shop today:

What do you think of these?  They are paper flowers that come in different sizes, but they coordinate with the others in their set.  I’ve played around with stacking them – what fun!
