I took in a kitty cat

A cute little guy we named him Fresno, my intention was to have a outside cat however Fresno had other plans he wants to stay inside but I am still trying to transition him outside, I think I am going to make him an outdoor enclosure so he can be outside but still be safe! He is so cute and now he is spoiled we hold him and he is just like a baby! I wanted to put this notice on my blog for anyone looking to buy from my shop! I make the statement that my products are made in a smoke free and pet free home! I do have a kitten he is 12 weeks old but is not allowed in my studio upstairs I keep all of my products there including the bags and shipping supplies so he is not in contact!
Hopefully I can get some pictures of Fresno uploaded soon!

Hello Kitty

I know I do, Hello kitty was huge when I was little, growing up I had a ton of Hello kitty things! One thing that I did want and never could have was a true Hello Kitty birthday party complete with hello kitty invites but we could never find any, I know you would have thought that we could have found hello kitty invites anywhere considering how big she was but we couldn't:(

So now that I have my ETSY shop I thought hey there might be little girls out there that were just like me and want a true hello kitty party complete with hello kitty invites! I will custom make these invites in set of 10 I will also do 15 and 20 for additional costs
check out my shop for more details!

My first sale!!!

Oh my goodness I thought this day would never come but It finally did!!!! I made my first sale from my handmade products on ETSY! I actually sold 8 products and I have 2 custom orders! I am so excited. It won't show up on ETSY that I have a sale because it was my friends from church that bought them and they did it directly through me and not through ETSY! I will post the pictures of what was sold I have removed them from my shop because they were a OOAK piece and I can not make them again! The Spring Stationary set (I will probably make more of these)
March Birthstone earrings (will be making more of these)

A Little Glitz( OOAK)

Light green wire wrapped earrings (I may make some of these again)

Dark Green Wire wrapped earrings (these may return)

Pink wire wrapped earrings ( I may bring these back)

Catch a pearl hoops (I may remake some of these)

A Little Glam (OOAK)

The Spring Stationary Set and the earrings except for a little glam was for doorprizes at a recent wedding shower they were a hit! A little glam was a seperate order!
For anyone out there in blogging world that is selling their handmade crafts and not having any sales give it time I was getting really down thinking that maybe I should close and just quit (I am not a quitter but no sales after almost 1 year it really starts to get to you) I have to say NEVER GIVE UP your sales will come and when they do you will be so energized to start working again!
until next time

Just another Winter Day!

Oh dear... I don't know how much more we can take of this winter stuff... we woke up this morning to that dreadful white stuff on the ground, and it has snowed on and off all day but worse than anything is how bitter cold it is out there the wind just goes right through you. Today has been kind of a lazy day just getting things ready for Etsy. I have two more bracelets and a pendant ready to add to the shop and three sets of dishcloths. Watched Grease and Grease 2 then just checking in on Fiskateers message board and now updating my blog. no pictures today, hopefully sometime next week I can get some pictures.
