I Spruced Up The Shop A Bit

This week I spent some time taking and retaking pics of my jewelry! I also listed some of these items to my etsy shop. And while I am not completely satisfied with the outcome of all of my photos, I still used them. I also worked on a new banner which I like at the moment. Let me know whatcha think.

Swap-O- Rama-Rama! What A Great Idea!!

Recently I have been doing some cleaning and de-stashing of all my arts and craft supplies. And I have tons of it. I've got beads that I am probably never going to use again. I also have fabric, trim, embroidery floss, and crochet needles that I bought (with good intentions) but never used. And now it is time to just get rid of it all. While I was trying to figure out what to do with all this stuff I made a tweet about it. And one of my fellow twitterers sent me a link to something called
Swap-O-Rama-Rama which is basically a bunch of clothing swaps/diy workshops that take place in my area . All you have to do is bring some clothes to swap, make a donation ($20 is suggested but not mandatory), and you can take part in diy workshops to make new items out of old clothes. And they have sewing machines, tools, silk screens, and overseers to help you make your items. Cool right? Plus they take donations of craft materials and tools so I am definitely going to contact them soon about donating. And I just might take part in a workshop too. I will keep you all posted.

Beads Destash-
Only the tip of the iceberg

New Lower Prices! And Free Shipping to U.S. and Canada!

I recently lowered prices in my etsy shop. I am also offering free shipping to U.S. and Canada for most of my items. Plus I just added international shipping so please and take a look . Also take a look at my facebook fan page and flickr to see other items that I have made but have not listed to my shop. I do have many of these items available and if you are interested in one please let me know via email ( or etsy conversations and I will let you know the price and we can discuss payment and shipping. Also, If you would rather make purchases through etsy, I will make a reserved listing for you. I hope you see something you like.
