I'm a Havin' A Sale!!!!!

So this Holiday Season has been AMAZING for my Etsy shop. I made it over the 100 sales mark and I went from 2 -3 orders a week to 5-10 orders A DAY!!!!
I did some new things with my tags and changed photos and such. Maybe it's karma for living such a virtuous life... NAAAA That's not it!!! tehehe

There is still plenty of time to get your order before Christmas!! Need something changed on my designs? Personalized? Just let me know and I will make it for you post haste. I have a 24 hour turnaround or LESS!!! I told ya... SPEEDY!!!!
Hope to see you on my site. Even if you don't need any of my lovelies just now, go ahead and heart me for later. You never know when you'll need a clipboard or two... maybe a party hat..

Well another Interesting Week is over!!!

I know it's Tuesday and that is technically the middle of the week but Jeff , my hubby, is off on Tuesday and Wednesday so I consider this our weekend.
After a week of DRAMA!!!! Things are finally at rest.
Sydney had her 8th birthday party complete with handmade Polly Pocket decorations. She helped me make her party hat and banner. We had a blast.
I was even able to make a couple of new pieces for my shop.
And speaking of my shop, my clipbaords are flying off the shelves!! I have sold 5 clipboards today alone.
I guess folks are looking for teacher gifts... well that's why I first made them.
Jack's teacher will be getting one to start his Kindergarten career. I have NO PROBLEM buttering up the teachers. NO PROBLEM at all!! :)
Here are some of the new items I created for my shop.
Have a great " week"!!!!!

Fancy Tag Time!!!

I am loving making these pretty little bits. It seems like pretty for petty's sake!! I love it.
I can't wait for my birthday next month for Photoshop Elements!! It will open up a whole new world of editing for me. I can't wait to see what I will be able to do to my photos!!

So I got Cupcakes!!

Here are the French Tag Toppers!!
Wizard of Oz!!

Special cupcake made just for me!!!
Red Vevet... could you die??!!!
Here's the deal... up until now all my photos have been taken with a little Sony digital camera. Nothing to write home about. Don't get me wrong.. I LOVE MY little camera but... I needed an upgrade.
For her birthday last year, my brother gave our oldest daughter a Nikon... well heck... a Nikon SOMETHING FABULOUS!!!!. It has lots of numbers and settings and stuff.
I was doing some photos of my new ETSY additions and I thought " I should use that fabu camera!!!"
So I called my brother and he baby-stepped me through some settings ( the word apature was used A LOT!!) ANNNDDDD... Cupcake Lane Bakery , and got some specialty cupcakes to show off my cupcake toppers.
The kids left fighting about who gets which cupcake when Mom finishes her shoot. ( I say Mom gets um... )

Trying out Something New!!

I have been in a whirlwind of creativity lately. It seems whhen I open the floodgates ... I can't stop!!!. I have made time for kids and dishes and laudry.. ( okay dishes and laundry have been 3am events.. I admit).
I just made this new Shabby Party set as my last set sold in TWO DAYS!!! I think that's a record. I may have hit on soemthing here!!
I love so very much all the pink and glitter and I REFUSE to feel guilty for not making boy stuff. lol
I need to get working on Syd's birthday set as she is turning 8 on the 17th and it would be ridiculous for me to make all of this party stuff then gp and BUY her stuff!!! LOL ( never say never though).
The kids and Daddy are off to the pool so off to create I must go!!!!

More Partyness!!! ( that a word?)

I have yet another party set I created for my shop. I had a heck of a time doing the photos for this bad boy. I wish I had the kind of home decor that could a dressed a beautiful shot but , the reality is, I live with cranyon marks on the wall on legos on the floor.
Maybe someday when the kids are older I will live in the cilivized house of my dreams... maybe. Until then I will exsist in my messy happy world!!!
Hope you enjoy the new stuff.
