1 day left for Free Gift with orders!

After sorting through all those initial charms to pick out the bad ones and a very long photoshoot, I am in the process of listing them up in the Etsy shop along with those cute clippies seen in the last post. Remember, there's only 1 day left on the free gift with all orders deal in my shop!

Something new out of something old.

You might remember a few months back I was selling hair pins with these charms on them. Well, I ran out of hair pins and was left with all these charms. These guys have been sitting in a box waiting patiently to find good homes until now. I re-sealed them with resin and they are even better than when they were new! So, after that I still wasn't quite sure what to do with them especially since I am not buying any supplies at the moment! After some more cleaning (yes,  more cleaning... It's never ending!) I found a  pack of these cute mini clothing pegs in my supplies. I originally bought them because I use to have a mini peg with a wooden red heart charm that I clipped on my blazer but I lost it and I wanted another one (I never did end up making it because I was so busy). Anyways, I  now have something fun to pin on my collar again and they make great little clips for the office too :) There will be a couple sets available in the Etsy shop when I have time to photograph them. Keep an eye out!

Free Gift With Purchase!

Just wanted to remind you that there are 11 days left to take advantage of my free gift with purchase offer so stop by the shop now!!!

If you're wondering what the free gift is you'll have to purchase something to find out :P Originally I planned the sale to end on the 30th but because I decided to do another promotion for the weekend of Black Friday I have moved the end date to Nov 26th.

What to do with these?

I'm a little bit obsessed with alphabets lately.. I made these for fun and because I wanted to try out the ice resin I bought a few weeks ago and now I'm not really sure what to do with them. They are one of the few things I've made during "project clear out". They are paper decoupaged onto a polymer clay tile and sealed with a coat of resin. The original plan was to make them into small pendants for the shop but when I was baking them they paper turned yellow around the edges of the letter and so I peeled all the letters off and re-did them. Good news is I didn't have to throw them all out and I do like this new resin a lot despite the horrible smell. Bad news is that a few of them don't fit the tiles perfectly. Plus, it's kind of hard to sell an entire alphabet in the shop when these are not exactly "made to order" friendly.  So, what to do?

I cleaned out my storage boxes yesterday and found all these goodies that are not listed in my shop. Well, I just spent about an hour listing them in the Etsy shop and there are only 1 of each (except for those charms) so go get them!

I finally bought a shipping scale

after two years of going to the post office. I might have to return it though because... I bought some stamps yesterday and then I realized that the stamps are for lettermail only and don't quite add up to the light packet amount when you stick on 2 or 3. So I took it to the post office and they added the extra charge for me and then the clerk told me that I can't ship via light packet using stamps and that I have to line up and have them print out the label and such (which is what I was trying to avoid). Is this true? Can't I just buy a bunch of 1, 5 and 10 cent stamps to add on what I am missing?

Project "Clear Out"

It's official! I like to hoard my supplies. I buy and I buy and I buy.... with no real project in mind and I have a gazillion projects "in the works". Of course I live in Canada where shipping costs and arm and a leg and maybe some organs so destash is out of the question. What to do? This weekend I decided to start project "Clear Out". I seriously need to get rid of all this stuff so until I get rid of a decent amount I will not buy any more supplies unless absolutely necessary (meaning I ran out of it). So, over the next few weeks hopefully you will see new goodies in the shop made from extra charms, polymer clay, felt, yards and yards of fabric, stacks of paper, stamps, screen printing supplies, plastic...... I can't even name all of the different supplies I have. lol these are made from some extra charms I have lying around and are going up in the shop this week.
