some great ETSY shop to check out

So Like alot of crafty mama's I get some of my supplies on ETSY.com.  I wanted to share a couple of them with you.  I have a lot of favorites but these lovely ladies are so friendly and FAST!.  First is where I get almost all of my alligator clips.  Doodlebug Accessories is so fast.  I place and order on a Friday night and got my clips on monday morning. The clips are excellent quality but totally affordable. Here is her link  http://www.etsy.com/shop/DoodlebugAccessories

Second shop is popalicioustoo on Etsy.  I have gotten her 1 in flatback buttons but you can also chose from pinbacks, or hollowbacks.   I am using them on some of my flower hair clips and will also incorporate into come new jewelry pieces.   I has so many set added to my favorites and new ones are added daily.   They are handpressed with a professional press. The final product is sturdy and of a high quality. Each set is made to order and they are a great price.  Here is the link  to her shop  http://www.etsy.com/shop/popalicioustoo?ref=pr_shop

So ready for spring

It has been a while and lots going on.  Trying to make pieces while working part time,  being sick for most of 2 months, the kids have been sick, and my daughter had her tonsils and adenmoids removed last week.  I am praying for better weather to we can feel better and get out and play.  I can wait for the flowers and colors and new inspiration.  I am hoping to start working on some jewelry very soon.  Tonight I am working on some brooches and also some vintage inspired hair clips.  Starting to make a few sales and that feels amazing!!!  I shipped one item out to the U.K. this week...Wooohooo!!!!  I also started a scentsy biz thins month While I have Avon on the back burner.  I needed a break from avon for a bit.  I lost my spark for it and i am hoping I get it back.  I don't think I have enough to keep me busy...lol!

ETSY info

I was so thrilled to be picked for an ETSY treasury, considering I had only posted the items the night before.  Here is the link,  I have the large pink Peony flower.  http://www.etsy.com/treasury/4d63d00470bc6d913d735a76/from-undiscovered-shops-waiting-to-be

I am excited to get more items in the shop soon.  I have a product photoshoot this Tuesday with my good friend Erin from Erin Woolwine Photography.  We have tried to get together earlier but with sick kids and schedule conflicts it just didn't workout.  I have SO MANY items to post in the shop so hopefully in the next couple weeks you can all check them out.

Thanks for all the support.

Welcome folks!!!!

It is so nice to see some new faces here.  I have loads of new things in the works right now.  I have a project I am going to "try" to work on tonight and if it turns out like I hope it will be a giveaway.  Mind you it will be a first attempt and may not be totally perfect but I will need a tester.  If there is anything you would like me to try to make I would be more that happy to give it a shot.  Have a good evening !
