Updates and News

Hello again everyone!
Yes, I once again seemed to have mysteriously disappeared for what seemed like ages, but I'm here with lots of news and updates, and a little bit later I'm going to post a list of fun Fall Finds for you all to enjoy :)
Update #1:
I've reached 1,000 sales in my Etsy Shop!! WOOHOO!!! I'd like to extend a huge THANK YOU to everyone who has made my shop such a success!
Update #2:
I have been planning a giveaway since around the time I was at 850 sales for the time I hit 1,000 as an added 'thank you' to everyone. Since I hit the magical, milestone number about 2 weeks ago, the giveaway has not started yet due to crazy life happenings (see update #3), but I'm happy to announce that the (tentative) start date is NOVEMBER 1st!
So keep an eye out and check back for your chance to enter to win some great stuff!
Update #3:
I've been a bit behind with orders in my shop and posting because of this:
My poor little baby (he's 2) was playing with his brother and fell, landing wrong and thereby fracturing his tibia. He will be in a cast for about 4 weeks. He is up and walking around on it now, so he's doing better, but it still breaks my heart to see him hobbling around :( . 
So, if you have an order in and it's taking a little longer than expected, please understand that I am working on it, but my little man is taking priority.
I am part of a really great team on Etsy called Yay for Trades!
(for those of you that don't know, I'm very trade friendly in my shop)
It was while wandering through the discussion boards on this team (looking for some gift ideas for Christmas!) that I came across a post by a wonderful lady named Melanie from a shop called Violet's Buds.
Her shop is shared between her and her husband, and includes a wonderful mix of lovely fashion accessories and magic wands (which I'd love to get my hands on one!)
In short, she was looking to trade peoples fall themed items, for professional images of them from a photoshoot (and then a giveaway) she was planning, and I happily offered my paper services :)
Boy, am I ever glad I did!!!!!
Not only is Melanie an incredibly sweet lady to work with, but her photoshoot was ADORABLE and I can't stop loving on the pictures that were sent to me...
Seriously in love with it all! And the models are just lovely and so cute as they "planted" and "picked" and smelled the flowers! Hehehe.
Stop by the blog at Violet's Buds here to see the full photoshoot and to see a list of all the other amazing items and sponsors!
Be sure to give her FB page a "like" too (here), to keep up with all her wonderful items and happenings :)

  1. Thank you for your kind words. It has been great meeting other crafters, and having the privilege to photograph everyone's items. I am so glad you love the photos! I look forward to working with you in the future
