Unique Christmas Gifts and Stocking Stuffers

As we are ending the year of 2012 (and yes, I'm planning on making it past the 21st!), we have grown our merchandise line quite a bit. I've really been pushing our Facebook page and our Etsy page in an attempt to get our name out there to the world. Just remember, if you have any last minute shopping to do, we have items that would make GREAT stocking stuffers! We have handmade bracelets, necklaces, and earrings, along with magnets, and uniquely designed journals (for the writer in the family). We can even customize items for you by adding a name or names.

If you don't like to deal with the crowds of last minute shoppers at the local mall, you can shop from the comfort of your home via our Etsy and Facebook pages! We try to make everything as easy as possible for you.

With that being said, we are working on new items to welcome in the new year and I can't wait! We may even have a SALE or possibly another giveaway in the near future. Don't forget to bookmark or subscribe to this blog so that you can keep up to date on what new items we have to offer. We also love to hear your comments and opinions, so don't be shy!

Here are just a few items we have right now

Beaded nautical bracelet with fish and anchor charms.

Beautiful beaded earrings using glass beads and fire polished beads. The bottom beads are crystal with hand painted purple flowers.

Love heart journal! This is the cover of one of our journals/notebooks/diaries. It even has glitter!

Ready for Christmas!

We are hosting another open house in a few weeks, hoping it will be as successful as the last one, especially since it will be only a few weeks before Christmas! We have made a ton of Christmas/holiday cards. I have some of them for sale online in our etsy store and on our Facebook page. Here are some samples...

Handmade greeting cards add a unique touch to the sentiment because they are not mass produced in a factory and are made with real hands and creativity!

I'm looking at making some new types of merchandise for the new year. I have so many ideas running around in my head. I can't wait to put them into motion. I think we are going to concentrate our efforts on the animal/pet niche. We are even thinking about hosting a special event next year for a a week or however long, and give a percentage of our sales to an animal rescue of some type (haven't decided on one specific one yet). If you are an animal lover, you will want to come back soon!

Pop Tab Earrings

Finally finished a few pop tab earrings. Worked on a few different designs but I think these two are my favorites so far:

I think these are super cute, especially for the holiday season.  Red tabs with silver glitter and the red tear drop bead! I think I'm going to make an extra pair for myself!

I used purple hemp with these to attach them to the earring posts and then added some pretty sparkly beads! The pop tabs are black with purple glitter. Who doesn't like glitter!?!?

I am dealing with some health issues at the moment which is draining the energy right out of me. Been trying to work on some handpainted Christmas ornaments and I think we are going to host another open house next month, since our first one was such a success!

Pop Tab Jewelry

We have slowly been working on new items. B is moving this weekend so packing has stolen a lot of our free time because I have also been helping as much as possible. I've been working on some new projects at home when I can find a little bit of time here and there. I'm working on pop tab jewelry. Here are a few things I've come up with so far...
This is a black tab with purple glitter. The details didn't show up too well in this photos but I will take better pics when they are all finished.

This tab is red with an opaque/metallic layer on top.

I am working on different designs and ideas and will post everything new here!

Fall and Halloween Time Is Here!

We have been working on a few Fall items as well as gearing up for the Christmas season. For fall, we have been mainly working on note cards and small gift items.. I have ideas for some fun Halloween items but we just haven't had time to get them done and October is almost over! We will know to plan earlier next year!

Here are a few of the note cards we have made:

And these super cute gem magnets:

These items are currently not available on our Etsy store but if you are interested in anything, become a fan on our Facebook page or send us an email

I have recently started a new job and the orientation/training part has sucked up most of my free time but in a week or so, I will only be working part time, giving me more time to work on new items!
