I find that at the end of every week I am always out of stock on something. I need to find a way to stay on top of it so I have more time to be creative rather than spending it constantly restocking the shop!

A part of my supply order that came yesterday included these magnets. I had previously ordered pins but I wanted the option of offering magnets too. When I get around to photographing I will add them to my shop :)

I spent yesterday learning to make these ribbon necklaces. It was a little frustrating at first because I tried to tackle multi-strand ribbon necklaces before I tried the single lol in the end I got it. They're for the pendants I am working on in my previous post. I can't find my spool of black ribbon! It's driving me crazy!

Charms that I have restocked. I sealed them in resin. I don't think I'll be doing that again it's a real pain because the resin fills up the hole I punched for the jump ring and flows over the edges and doesn't cover other edges... and in the end a lot of charms go in the garbage. But they do look pretty all glossy and domed. I hope my customers don't mind if I don't re-do all my shop photos. I only have a few pairs of resin sealed ones.

The bread charms. When I was sick at the beginning of the month I couldn't eat anything but apple sauce and drink fluids so I saved all the little plastic containers and am now using them to store my larger size charms.

I totally love those breads. Especially the ones that are blinking 'cause you're going to eat them soon. mmmm. I would put them with peanut butter charms.

I love these! You've always got such cute products!

Did you try putting something through the whole on the charms while your covering it with resin? A toothpick maybe? I haven't ever done the resin thing, but it might work...

There's got to be a way it would work. Maybe ask people on Etsy forums.

toothpick wont fit and if i shove something in there it will get stuck to the resin surrounding it lol
