Yep, you read that right!!  🙂  My shop has officially re-opened and I just can’t believe it’s been a whole year since it was last opened!!  It’s just been a crazy year, I guess!! 

Anywho, I am so excited though because I have created TONS of new cards that I will be adding to my shop later today!!  🙂  As in the past, I will post the pics here first before adding them to my site, so if you are reading, keep your eyes peeled later on today. 

Another reason I am excited?  I’m REALLY doing my homework this time with my shop.  I’m getting involved with teams (more on that later) and reading some great tips from some seasoned sellers on Etsy.  If anyone is interested in getting some GREAT resources, just let me know!!  🙂  I would be glad to provide the links!  😉  Until later, dear ones…


Get ready!! April 30, 2009

Some of you may have noticed that I haven’t listed anything new in my shop for the last few days, but there is a reason for it!


I’m so excited to announce the arrival of my new product line.  I haven’t come up with a name for it yet, but tomorrow will post pics of the new cards and would LOVE some ideas on what to name the line!


Check back tomorrow to see my new stuff!  Can’t wait!

I figure that if I am going to start off this whole feature of my blog, I might as well start it off RIGHT – by choosing someone whom I greatly admire.  Rhonda, a.k.a. “thecozyloft”, is such a dear friend and a lovely person.  The talent that she displays in her shop is incredible!!  My favorite item from her shop?  Her wonderful sachets!!!  She, of course, makes MANY other fabulously fantastic creations.  I love everything she creates and am just crazy about this friendly crafter!!

Here is a pic of one of her sachets I have bought in the past…Isn’t it gorgeous??  If you think it LOOKS good, it SMELLS even better!!!  🙂  Head over to her shop now!!!

I am approaching my 100th sale (YAY!), and want to do something to celebrate!!  Who better to celebrate with than my customers like you?!?!  🙂  So, whoever buys the 100th item from my shop will also receive a bundle of goodies!!  So, remember, once someone becomes the 100th buyer, they get the goods!  It could be you.  Check out the shop here for working towards being the 100th buyer!  Get the idea?  Have I said “100th” enough?  Can you tell I’m excited about this?  LOL

My first official blog!!! May 20, 2008

Welcome, welcome, welcome!!! I’m so excited to start up this blog. My intention with this blog is to introduce you to some fun handmade STUFF I find online and to show you some of my new creations that you can look at and purchase on my Etsy site.   While it’s primarily for business purposes, I will tell you about some stuff going on in my life.  Read those posts, if interested!!!  LOL

If you find some handmade STUFF that you think should be featured on my site, please let me know! 🙂

I’ll constantly be updating this site and my Etsy store. I’m open to suggestions!!
