I'm Back From Vacation

And ready to sell.....

I had a great vacation in Door County but I'm back and now I'm gearing up for the month of October. From now until Tuesday night September 29th at midnight, my entire Etsy shop is 10% off the prices shown. Fill up your cart, pay for your order, and I'll refund 10% of your order back to you through Paypal.

Doesn't include freight but does include those items marked Destash.

Shop to your heart's content. Don't be shy. If you want more than one of something, ask me and I will let you know if I do. If there is something that you have been looking for from 7gypsies or Cosmo Cricket, just ask. I have a lot of unlisted items from these two.

10% off. How fabulous is that?

If 400 was EXCELLENT - you should see the view from 500

I truly did not think that when I posted on August 19th that I had sold 400 items on etsy, that I would be talking about a new number this quickly. But I am. As of yesterday, I have sold over 500 items on etsy. I truly don't know what to say. I am grateful, giddy, and just all around tickled.

Part of yesterday's success was due to an email/twitter blast advertising 10% off all Jenni Bowlin for one day only. I plan to do these blasts every week from now until the holidays, most likely on Tuesdays. Didn't get a tweet or an email yesterday? Want to fix that situation? You can either comment here and provide your email address in the comment, or you can follow me on twitter Either way, don't miss out. Here's a hint. There will be a caravan of stuff on sale next week!

Thank you all again for your support and your kind words and your orders.

Breakfast at Tiffany's Anyone?

So I am on etsy one day and I get an order right before I go out the door to the post office and I toss the product in an envelope and send it out. A few days later, I get this message from the fabulous Tiffy (it's actually Tiffany but I love that her etsy id is stampinmamatiffy) talking about how fast my shipping is. I, of course being the person that I am, tell her that it was a fluke and that she should not expect such fast turn around every time to which she responds that she doesn't care much because the stuff is so fabulous.

Anyway, an etsy/blog love affair was born from this simple conversation. When you get a minute, visit to meet my new friend Tiffany. You will see some great projects, be eligible for some RAKs and, if you hurry and follow her instructions, a giveaway of Tattered Angles and Jenni Bowlin Halloween product, courtesy of my etsy shop. Lots of inspiration to be found on her blog. Love ya Tiffy!

Also if you have a minute, check out the new Melissa Frances on the etsy site. Posted a couple of things this morning with more to follow.

Have a great Labor Day weekend.

Fabulous Things from a Fabulous Company

Happy Thursday -

I know that you are all looking forward to the long weekend as much as I am. We are doing some dog rescue things, hanging out in the yard, and OPENING BOXES OF SCRAP STUFF!

Talk about fun.

I got 5 boxes of 7gypsies yesterday. Much of it is discontinued product so you won't believe the excellent prices.

I also got some Melissa Frances. If you are not familiar with her stuff, you should take a few minutes to see her website at She does the most beautiful vintage pastels and excellent stripes. Really timeless stuff.

I have included a pic of one of the items. I am listing the rest on etsy tomorrow. If you look under new products, I have the mini albums, rhinestones, blue mica, bingo books, tinsel, flash cards (boy and girl) and the vintage die cuts. They are all listed under new product. If you are interested in any of them, let me know and I will set them aside for you. Quantities are very very limited on some things and I would not want you to miss out.

Inspiration today? Take a look at this:

Hope you all enjoy the holiday weekend. Looking forward to seeing some of you in September.
