My Etsy Shop Sale

I have closed my Etsy shop, and moved my store to my website. You can click here to find it. I have more new items coming.

I have had an etsy shop for a while now. When I moved my blog to WordPress last year, I tried having my own shop here, but it proved to be a big ol pain in the sit down place, so I moved it back over to etsy. It is easy peasy to list things for sale there, even special orders when people ask me to make things for them. It is also easy for people to pay me using paypal or their credit card. So, that is why I am still using my etsy shop.

I have just created a 10% off coupon for my readers to use, so if you have had your eye on something over there, now is the time. The coupon will be good thru the end of January for my Snow Days Sale. When you place your order, enter the coupon code snowdaysale to get your 10% discount. Here are a couple of the cute things I have for sale over there:

Everything in the shop is on sale, not just the ones pictured here. Hurry on over there and get your Fab goodies now!

I Made It! Blog Party

I discovered the other day that my camera is not the only thing I lost on my last trip. I had a neat little manicure kit for more than 20 years, that just disappeared. It was leather, and had a little zipper closure, and loops inside to hold everything.  I have looked everywhere for it, and decided today that I would have to make a new case to hold all those little tools.

I made up the pattern as I went along.  It is a little larger than I wanted it to be, but since this is the first attempt, that can be remedied in the future. I also poked a hole in one corner when I was turning it, so this one is mine forever.

See that little hole in the corner?

So, there ya have it–my first attempt at a manicure kit case. It’ll work for the purpose, and I can make alterations on the next one.

Tada! Nana’s Wire Wrapped Jewelry Is On Etsy!

Nana and Poppa in 1992

The last time we visited with my mother and father in law, Nana asked me to take some of the wire wrapped jewelry she makes home with me and put it for sale in my shop. It only took me three months, but I finally got time yesterday to take pictures of each individual piece, measure them, and write a description so that I could upload them to my Etsy shop.  Yes, it is a time consuming process, but something I feel honored to be able to do for my in-laws. They have been wonderful to me over the 18 years that FabGrandpa and I have been married, so it is nice to be able to do something nice for them.

Nana and Poppa both make jewelry. They used to go all over in their motorhome, doing craft shows and selling their beautiful pieces. They haven’t been able to travel in a number of years, so they haven’t had anywhere to sell what they make.

I only have the first 10 pieces listed so far, but more are coming, just as soon as I have a minute to get them posted. Yesterday when I was taking pictures, the battery died in my camera. It is charging right now, and later today I am going outside for another photo session.
