Pssst...i know a secret!

Pssst! Hey! Hey you! D'ya wanna know a secret? There's a brand new etsy shop that just opened up yesterday, that is going to have adorable purses, jewelry, cards and "Knit Knacks" They only have one item right now, but more inventory will be added soon.

I can tell you from long, personal experience with the owner that they will be fantastically well-made, and customer service will be top-notch. (She's put up with me as her little sister for thirty four years, the woman has patience! :-D)
Introducing *drumroll please*

It's my big sister's brand new etsy shop - go check it out!

My Newest Projects - adding embroidery!

So, when I was a little girl, my mother sat me down and taught me how to embroider. Granted, I hated following patterns, and I thought separating embroidery floss was a complete pain in the rear, but I did learn.

I had picked up a couple of small wooden embroidery hoops on a whim in the craft store, thinking I would do something with them "one day." Well, after making some really cute little flower buttons, I have finally got around to that "one day:"




No Patterns here - just put the linen in the embroidery hoop, loaded up my needle with craft thread (no separating strands for me!) and got to work attaching the buttons and stitching happily away.

New Venue!

I'm trying out a new online shopping venue for my creations -
http://www.artfire.com
My "art studio" is here:
http://dancinjules.artfire.com

It's still in the beta stage, so it's a little rough around the edges still, but the listing process is a dream (one page!) and they give you a bunch of photos to show off your creations (ten! an embarrassment of riches)

They are offering a limited number of $7.00/month for life verified art studios, which is really a fantastic deal. I can list as many new items as I want, and will still know exactly what my monthly bill will be.

I will be filling the new shop up over the coming week

NaNoWriMo!

So, I'm writing my fifth novel this month as part of
National Novel Writing Month!

The Office of Letters an Light is the fantastic non-profit organization that makes this event (and others like it) possible.

I have listed several e-bay auctions with a portion of the proceeds going towards this organization.

New Earrings!

Listed new earrings in the etsy shop this morning:
Earrings!

They are shrink plastic, with a felt backing. Fun to be able to wear big, bold earrings that are still lightweight enough to be comfortable!
