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!
