Finally Catching up. . .

I am so thankful that we've been able to get almost caught up on our schoolwork after being sick for so long, so now we can enjoy the rest of the week and relax a little, yay!  We did take some time off yesterday afternoon to go bowling with some friends and it was such a nice diversion.  I've been burning the late night oil the last couple of nights to get the remaining inventory items online and posted on Etsy.  Whew!  I didn't realize how much there was.  I'm getting there though, and it feels really good to be making some progress.  I think I only have about 15-20 items left.  Most of it is metalsmithed and fused glass items.  For now I'll keep truckin along.

Stay tuned.  On Friday I'll be posting some coupon codes on both Facebook and here.  I myself plan to avoid the black Friday craziness and do some shopping on Etsy.  I always love the quality of hand-made over mass produced.

If you want a peek at what is new in the store, check it out. . .

More new items up

I just wanted to let you know that I've been able to get a few more listings up this week.  I'm finally starting to feel better from the flu (Don't get it this year.  It seems to hang on forever).  I am a little more clear-headed this week, which makes the listings go much easier and with fewer mistakes.  Below are all items that I've recently listed and were made by hand using silversmithing techniques like sawing, filing, melting, soldering, etc.

New Listings

I'm working on getting some new listings up this weekend.  I've just added two pairs of copper disk earrings, one hammered and domed, and one stamped pair.  I'm hoping to get the other silversmithed items as well as the leaf necklaces and earrings done this weekend as well. . . Below are pictures of the earrings.

New Facebook App, Illness, and new listings coming soon

I don't know if your house has been dealing with as much of the cold season as ours has, but I feel like we've really been hit hard this season.  I can't remember the last time that we have had so much illness in our family.  I'm hoping that you are not going through the same in your home.  It has given me some time, since the kids haven't felt well enough to do school this week, to get some things caught up around the house as well as get a few business things done.  I recently found an app that allows you to view my Etsy store directly from Facebook.  If you browse and find an item that you like, it allows you to share or like it on Facebook, and also has a pin-it button for Pinterest.  I'm hoping that I'll be able to add a Wanelo button soon too.  I'm still in the process of trying to find something that allows me to have my Etsy listings directly on my website as well.

My daughter and I had a fun time at the Meridian Middle School Craft bazaar this past weekend too.  We got to meet a lot of people.  I have some inventory that I am still in the process of getting listed on Etsy, and will keep you posted as I get the items up there.

I'm praying good health for you and your families!

Prepping and some new pictures

So I've been prepping for the last couple of weeks for the Meridian Middle School craft bazaar this weekend.  I'm really looking forward to a fun weekend as people get an early start on their Christmas lists.  Since I've been getting some new items put together, I took pictures of a few things.  These items are not currently listed in my Etsy store yet, but I'm hoping to get them listed over the next week.  If you see a picture of something that you would like, and is not yet listed, let me know and I can send you an invoice and set it aside for you.  Thanks so much for stopping by!
