‘TIS THE SEASON FOR A SALE!!!!

I know!  I’ve been MIA again – and I must apologize.  But I’ve been up to my eyeballs in making Christmas goodies for all you Santa’s out there.  It’s a lot of work!  First I make up the items, then I take photos and then I have to list and write up descriptions.  It’s just very time consuming.  In the meantime, I still have to run the shop and take care of orders and questions, relist expiring listings (a lot of which I’m editing in better photos of), and I have to check and inspect deliveries and make purchases.  It’s a full-time job!  Sometimes I feel like I’m losing my mind because there’s so much to do!  And lately, I’ve just been too exhausted to write this blog though I really need to make more time for it!!  But anyway………..

I want to say my thanks, as is my custom, to all my wonderful customers – you’re all just the very best!  I really enjoy working with you all, and packing up your orders with as much care as possible.  I also want to express my thanks to all my fellow Etsian’s who have included my jewelry in their treasuries – if you have some spare time and like to look, these treasuries are awesome for getting gift ideas!  – take a minute to click on the links – and my thanks again to Galina, Olivia and Bonnie .

I have recently made some changes to my shipping charges – effective immediately every single shipped in the US will carry insurance.  I have recently taken a large hit for a few shipments that have been lost by USPS.  It’s to be expected that when you do not receive your order, you will end up filing a claim with your credit card carrier or paypal to seek reimbursement.  What many of you probably do not know is that I’m the one who loses.  Not only do I have to reverse (or pay back) the amount of the order, but I also have to lose the shipping charges and I lose the merchandise – and that hurts the shop in a very big way.  I am struggling in the most dire way right now because of REACT not allowing me to use the word  “Pandora” in my listings,  and I just cannot afford to take any more losses. 

But on a good note – I have just placed all bead sets and rhinestone charms on sale –  bead sets are now on sale for $2.99 to $5.99, and the rhinestone charms are 99 cents!!!  Now is the time to Christmas shop!!!  and especially so for those of you with coupons!!!!  Happy Shopping!!!!!

But before you go, here’s a quick Christmas preview treasury – this is just the start – I still have all the beads sets, themed bracelets and more charms to make!! (Like I said, it just NEVER ends!!)

Speaking of treasuries, my European/Pandora style leather Christmas bracelet was just included in a Hey Handmade! treasury – thank you so much, Tim!  The bracelet is now being favorited by a lot of people!! WooT!!   Here’s a LINK to the treasury – please take a few minutes to check it out!!

So, here’s that treasury – a mini-preview of some of the Christmas earrings I will be offering this year!  Check it out!!  Most of these are ooak – so if you see something you absolutely have to have buy it now before it’s gone!  Happy shopping!!

2 OF MY ITEMS FEATURED IN HEY HANDMADE!

Well, the Hey, Handmade! e-catalog has been released and 2 of my items are in it!  How exciting! Just click on the titles/links to see the Hey Handmade!  listing.

European Style Bead Watch
This listing is for a custom designed European(Pandora) style bead watch, which you and I will collaborate on making – it will be designed to your specs and your price range – all you have to do is tell me what price range you are looking for and what colors – and if you want any specific beads – and voila!  your bead watch is born!!  What’s awesome about this watch is that you can change the beads and use what you have in your bead collection to match your attire!!   All you  have to do is email me via Etsy to get started.  After that, I will put together a few samples and mail you photos to look at – if I get lucky and one of them resonates with you, we’re done and I will make you a reserved listing so you can process payment.  If not, we go back and forth until I come up with the watch of your dreams!!  I’ve done this many times and it’s an easy and very fun process – and we get to know each other a little bit while collaborating – how much better can it get?

European/Pandora Style Christmas Themed Leather Bracelet

 This is a themed Christmas bracelet – filled with memory provoking charms –  designed to center around the Christmas tree and gift giving.  And when the merry season has passed, you can switch out the themed beads and replace them with beads from your collection to wear for every day.  This bracelet is also one heck of a gorgeous Christmas gift for that special someone!  and it’s filled with high-quality beads – all at the fraction of the price for an authentic Pandora – and the quality is so good you’ll wonder why someone would spend all that money on a Pandora bracelet when they can have one that looks just as good!!!

So, these are just 2 of the items I am planning on offering for this Christmas season – I am putting together my complete Holiday Line right now.  Check my shop often for all the new listings that are coming soon – more themed holiday European style bracelets (leather, bangles, snap clasp bracelets), bead sets and charms as well as Christmas themed earrings!!  I’ve got a ton of new stuff to make, take photos of and list in the next 2-3 weeks, and what I have coming is absolutely gorgeous.

HALLOWEEN SALE ENDING FRIDAY AT MIDNIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Gosh, how the days have been flying!  I have to apologize for not writing sooner!  That said, I also have to apologize to my customers and fellow Etsians for not thanking them promptly!!!  The good news is that I have finally, FINALLY!! finished editing all those deactivated listings.  *sigh* what an enormous, annoying, irritating thing.  Well, at least it’s done.  Now I can move forward again with getting ready for Christmas!

So I see a lot of you favoriting my handmade lampwork Halloween earrings!!! But time to hurry – Halloween is only 2 weeks away and shipping takes 2-5 business days AND more importantly!! My Halloween Sales Event will end tomorrow at midnight – so hurry hurry over to take advantage of the 20% off mark down!!!! Here’s a quick LINK.

I need to say thanks to my awesome customers, and even more so to those of you who keep coming back to shop with me again and again.  I can’t begin to tell you how much that means to me – and it’s one of the things that has helped to keep me going through this whole nightmare – so thank you!!!!  I am sending you all a big cyber hug!!  And thank you to all my fellow Etsians who keep honoring me by including me in their treasuries!!  Thank you all so very much – I am humbled by you all. 

This is a list of all the recent treasuries I’ve been included in – with links to the treasuries themselves.  So please, get yourself a cup of mojo and sit down and check out these awesome collections of Etsy offerings – I think treasuries are the best way to brainstorm gifting ideas, hands down!!  I have been remiss in getting over to all the treasuries and commenting and sending thank you convos due to a lack of time, but I will get there eventually!  and Nadin,  a very special thanks to you for including me in 4 of yours!! holy cow!! and another special thank you to Dena from SMArtsbyDena for including me in 2 of hers. Wow!!!!

 Nadin,
Nadin again, Nadin again, Nadin yet again!!, theblueeggevents, misticdesigns, cphtgirl, MysticRealmsArtist, corkycrafts, rewildingceramics, snugglywugglyblanket, anandabijoux, SMArtsbyDena, giftagaingiftbags, cutthefish, SMArtsbyDena again.

SALE!!!!!!

It’s been awhile since I threw a sale, and I have some Halloween and fall items still available in limited quantities – so I’ve decided to throw a 10% Off  Halloween/Fall Sale!!  Included are all almost all of my handmade Halloween lampwork earrings, European style beads and bracelets, and all other items with fall colors or themes for Halloween and Thanksgiving.  Here’s a LINK to see all 145 items (as of this moment) at a glance, and Etsy on Sale has a wonderful new feature that allows you to see the original price mark down.  So, if you’re looking for something new for the fall or Halloween, now’s the time as this sale will end 10/14/11, so hurry while there’s still good pickins!!! :-))  (and for those of you with coupons, need I say more?!)

Ok, next order of business are the thank you’s!!! to all my wonderful and faithful customers – there are so many of you now, and  God bless you all!!  And thank you to  shopthinkingofU and rstevo9 and AshnicDesign and purelysimpledesigns and punkytutus and brightrosecreations and supersupplies4u and stippofalltrades doodleprincess and retrovintiques and literaryberry and terrymillsphoto and pasin and earlums for including my items in your wonderful treasuries – which I really appreciate!  So thank you all!

Lastly, am down to just 200 items now left to edit and reactivate.  Some of the bracelets will require new or retouched photos as I can no longer display anything with a PANDORA logo on it.  SO, even though the photos will show a plain clasp chances are good that they will be stamped until I deplete my stock of snake chains and leather bracelets.  I will be restocking plain clasps from now on so if you want a bracelet with a logo on it now’s the time to get one.
