Happy Birthday or should I say Unbirthday to you...

Finally get to talk about these new sales I'm going to be having! I plan on celebrating birthdays in the book world. Whether it be the author's birthday or the character's, I'm going to celebrate it! The sales will run for a month or two (depending on the amount of birthdays) and will be in both shops.

This month has to be my favorite and what other way to start then with my favorites! In the month of January we have several different birthdays. There are the three character ones: Professor Severus Snape, born January 9th, the most famous detective Sherlock Holmes (Jan 6th) and our favorite vamp killer Buffy Summers born January 19th. Then we have the staggering 4 author birthdays. First up is J.R.R. Tolkien (Jan 3rd), A.A. Milne (Jan 18th), my favorite all time poet Edgar Allan Poe (Jan 19th) and another fav Lewis Carroll (Jan 27th).

To celebrate we'll have all related bookmarks, journals, magnets, coupon holders and any other items on sale for atleast a month. This first sale will run through all of February since I don't have many next month. I'm hoping this will help bring in new items every month and hope you enjoy seeing who's up next!

Happy Crafting!

P.S. If you notice I'm forgetting a birthday of an author or character I have items posted for, let me know!

***I realized I forgot Jacob Black! (Jan 14th) He will be celebrated as well!***

Time Management

I'm finding having alot more "free time" very unsettling. After months and months of having to plan out every minute of my day and now not so much, I find myself at times just wondering around the house. Yeah I have plenty to do but I'm lost without that list lol. Anyone else get that way?! Any-who, with that free time comes finished products!

First up are 3 new bracelets that can be found in Turning The Page shop. I had this one done since before Christmas but knew I couldn't handle the orders at the time. It's the Sookie Stackhouse made to order bracelet:

The second bracelet is one I've wanted to do for awhile now. It's one of my all time favorite shows and when I found some of the books I knew a bracelet had to be done! It's the buffy-the-vampire-slayer made to order bracelet:

The third bracelet I had to rush to get done. I used to keep up with what movies are coming out but I had let that slide with being so busy. Then while looking for books (for my own reading pleasure) I saw a movie tie-in version of Beautiful Creatures! So of course a bracelet need to for be made.

I've also taken more pictures of new items that will be up this weekend and during next week. Some have to do with the sales that hopefully will start Monday. (New blog post as well to detail sale) Ok I wanted to post a picture but I can't get the upload button to work with me. So you will just have to be surprised!
Happy Crafting!

I'm back and what a year it's been!

I made it! I can't believe I actually made it through 2012! I had such big plans for both of my shops and they all pretty much didn't make it. Before writing this I looked back at my old posts and saw the list I made for 2012 and I don't think I could cross off half!
The main reason for that is I've been working way too much! For awhile I was working about 60 hours a week. And on top of that I did manage one new item and that is the book page bracelets. Now if you are unfamilar with them, here is one:

These bracelets have by far become my best sellers. Currently available are Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Twilight, Mortal Instruments, Darkest Powers, Lord of the Rings, Monster High and Divergent. **Spolier Alert**Coming soon are : Sookie Stackhouse (within a few days it will be posted), Buffy the Vampire Slayer and already announced on Facebook-Beautiful Creautres.
I have so many more planned as well.
As for New Year plans. boy do I have alot! In a few days I'll post a list of them. I want to compare my current list I'm working with last year's list before posting. But I will also be posting a blog specifing the following sales event: Birthday sales! That's right, b-day sales. I work with so many different authors' works that I want to honor them even more by celebrating not only their birthdays but if I can find out, the characters' birthdays as well!
Well I'm off for now to get to work on some of those new items for those mentioned sales! It's great to be back and plan to keep up with this more this year!
Happy Crafting!!!
