  • Post more
  • More special deals for Facebook fans only
Turning the Page:
  • Current sale of Buy 2 Get 1 free will become a permant sale
  • More journals covered in book pages
  • Hopefully will have other types of items available as well.
  • New pics of items and better descriptions including size
My Thoughts Exactly:
  • New pics of items and better descriptions including size
  • More journals
  • New items
  • Clearance section will start up during the first week of the new year
  • Monthly sales will start in the next week or so. Will have them by type of item, theme, etc

I still plan on doing more fairs as well this year, probably spread them out better though! Well that's all I can think of so far for the new year. Hope everyone has a safe and Happy New Year!

What a year!

First Happy Holidays everyone!!! I can not believe my shop has been open for over a year now. And to think it almost didn't happen. I had started out just making stuff for my church fair and after the one I did in 2010, I had a bunch of stuff left. My bestie talked me into opening on Etsy and now I've been open for over a year and have done a ton of fairs.
Just wanted to recap some of the fine points. I've had 76 orders and sold 121 items! I've also had custom orders outside the shop for 150 coupon holders, 100 notepads, a bridal favor set and a few other small ones. I couldn't of asked for a better first year!
I've learned alot of lessons along the way too. Like what fairs not to do again! Doing so many this year has taught me alot. Especially not to do one the week before black friday lol. I certainly plan on being better prepared next year for the holiday season.
I think the biggest lesson I've learned this year is keeping my work room in better order! I seem to be forever cleaning it. I'm always recovering from one fair or order. I am going to try my hardest to get it cleaned and keep it that way. Hopefully I can do it :)
Well just wanted to say thanks to all my customers that have made it such a great year! I'll be posting again soon with what to expect this coming year, got alot of things in the works!

Happy crafting!!

Sorry for the lack of update of the sales. I've been slammed! Just finished up an order for 16 shopping organizers, plus other shop stuff. And been busy preparing for Christmas, it seems the older my son gets, the crazier our schedule becomes! So since I was unable to change the sales yesterday, I decided to extend the journal sale. Here's what you can expect the rest of this week:

Monday & Tuesday: Buy 1 Get 1 Free on keychains. That's both the postit keychain and the bottlecap keychains. They make great stocking stuffers. If you're unfamilar with them, here are some samples:

Wendsday & Thursday: All Shopping Helpers are 20% off. That will make the coupon holders $2.00 instead of $2.50 and the shopping organizers will be $5.60 instead of $7.00. Here's a few that are available:

To finish off the sale, Friday & Saturday: 10% off your purchase by using the code that will be available on the shop banner those two days.

Happy Shopping everyone!
