Memorial Day Etsy Finds...

So with Memorial Day right around the corner, you may want to buy yourself something a little different, bring in the spring/summer months.  Etsy is a great place to shop for just those things, not things from the department store, but unique pieces, you will hold on to forever.

So I went through and picked out a couple of sites that I thought you might find of interest:

1. https://www.etsy.com/shop/thestellabluegallery?ref=seller_info_count  Different jewelry and a variety with a percentage off for the Memorial Day holiday

2. https://www.etsy.com/shop/BabyTrendzz?ref=seller_info_count  Baby clothes and of course all the rage, what parent/grandparent/Aunt/Uncle doesn't want to do something for the baby in their life.

3.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/AWomansWishList?ref=seller_info_count# Some cute items that will last long past the Memorial Day holiday....bags, scarves, umbrellas all personalized

4.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/GiddyGumdrops?ref=seller_info_count Something a little different, but fun to decorate for in the backyard this coming summer

5.  https://www.etsy.com/shop/Miabeanie?ref=seller_info_count Check out this cute site of bracelets, offering 10% off for Memorial Day

Happy Shopping!!!

Not sure what to do this Spring....

So you have some great jewelry but aren't sure what to wear it with....

1.  Consider only wearing one piece of jewelry to accentuate that designs

2.  Look to colors that are YOUR colors, consider going to Macy's or Nordstroms to get your colors done

3.  When you are ready to purchase something, make sure it is something you can't live without, not just on sale

4.  Try black and white with one pop of color

5.  Take all your bracelets and I mean all of them and stack them on your wrist, just that, with your favorite outfit

6.  And continue to layer, layers are great and can be taken off as the weather gets better

5 Great Reasons to Shop Etsy....

Why would you shop Etsy?  Let me tell you...

1.  Original and unique one of a kind pieces that have great value because they are handmade
2.  Support a small business, a mother working from home, a father working from home
3.  Because many times the products are green, organic, or just more durable than anything else
4.  Because we are a community, Etsy people sell online but also try to help each other out
5.  We want the buyer to be happy, if you aren't, you can most often return your item without any hassle (I can't speak for all Etsy stores, but the ones I have seen)

So next time you think about that gift you want to get for someone, or the need for something new for your baby/child, think Etsy, you will likely get something that you will treasure for a lifetime.

What's New....

One of the benefits of being my own boss is picking what I am doing, and with my lack of being able to keep from producing the same thing, there is always something new going on.  Most recently I have been making cute copper and sterling tags with different sayings on them.  For instance, the ones I am working on right now include:


And the list continues.  Do you have any two words that you would like to see on tags?  Let me know!!

New Pieces on Etsy....

I have been trying some different more personalized pieces to post on Etsy.  I love taking a piece of flat metal and turning into something someone loves to wear daily.  Most often for personalized pieces I use copper and a little sterling, and then hang the pieces on sterling silver chain.  Simple but great for oneself or gifts. 

The one that I have linked you to hear is "love", yes I said it "love" simple and to the point.  Now do you have to have someone in your life that you are "in love" with to wear this, of course not.  All you need is love and it will wear perfectly!!
