The Next Big Step!

6 Nov

Most of you know I own an etsy shop online where I sell all the crafts I make! What most of you don’t know is that I’ve been working on opening my own online shop!

It took a lot of time and budgeting and designing – but it’s finally here!! You may notice that not all of my things are up on that store yet as I’m still adding listings and pictures. Slowly this store will be packed full of everything I’ve made 🙂

If you click on the shop page you can see everything or sort by sections. There will more sections as soon as I get more items listed 😉

Clicking on the listing gives you all the details you need and extra pictures (which most only have one but soon will have a bunch for each!)

Checking out is super easy too – just like Etsy, all you need is a paypal account which is safer to use rather than your credit card. You add your items to the cart. Click checkout, then it will take you to paypal.

My favorite thing about Etsy was it was so personal and I could do custom orders really easily. Thanks to my contact page I still can! It’s just as easy to get in touch with me and under the Shop tab I’ll be adding a Custom Order section. So if you are looking for a custom order you wanted from me you can easily find it there!

I’m so excited to finally have my own shop! Soon you’ll see a button over on my the side there —-> with my new site on it so it’s easy to find! Even though I’m doing this – I’m not closing my Etsy shop. I won’t be adding any new listings over there but I’ll still be there!

Hooray for the next big step – I’m excited to see where it takes me next!

Crafty Party!

20 Sep

This past weekend our team had a craft party! Everyone met up together and got crafty 😉 There was food, drinks, and craft supplies galore! I thought I’d take a break from the usual crafty posts and let you in on what a crafty party around here looks like!

 

I think we all have enough supplies here to keep us busy for days!

 

You can’t have a craft get together without some crafty inspiration!

Afterwards we decided to make this an ongoing event. Every three months we’ll be meeting up to get crafty together and enjoy each other’s company. This group of people have become a great way to share my experience of blogging, crafting, etsy, and being a mom. When I started out with all of this – I didn’t have many people to share my experiences with and what better way to do it, then get crafty with people who share the same interests as you!?

Thanks for stopping by!

Love Always,

J

My Favorite Thrift Store!

24 Aug

I talk about going to Blue Ridge Hospice Thrift shop a lot – but I’ve never shown you what it’s like to shop there so I thought the next time I go I’m taking pictures – and I did!

My favorite things about this thrift store are:

  • All the proceeds go the Blue Ridge Hospice
  • You get a points card and a punch for every time you shop there! I’m halfway through mine and I’ll get $10 off my next purchase of $20 bucks or more (which is not hard to do here).
  • They have everything in sections that are clearly defined so if you are searching for something specific you can easily find it.
  • They have two floors of thrifty goodness!! (This place is huge)
  • They have a room dedicated just to craft supplies ❤ They had me at hello.

This mirror was so cool – I am actually mad I didn’t buy it. I’ve been seeing these pins on pinterest where people design things around a mirror and this one seemed like a perfect match – but since my storage is overflowing I’m not allowed to buy any new big projects until I finish the ones I have 😦

These chairs were AWESOME! In this family we like dark wood and these would be perfect for us. I even like the fabric choice but it was a little stained so I would need to reupholster it (not a problem). The problem? We don’t need chairs, nor do we have room to store them. Another bummer.

Apparently I have a thing for chairs – but can’t you see these in a little kids playroom!? Oh so adorable 🙂

Then we come to the craft room -which I only took to pictures of because I was entirely to destracted by all the goodies to stop and take more pictures (sorry!) but check out this wall of baskets! If you can’t find a basket here – I’m afraid you need to make your own! They have every size and every kind you could as for – even cute picnic baskets!

Tada!!! The fabric section. I could probably spend a lifetime in here if they let me. In fact the lady checking me out said she might almost pay me to take it away ❤ I told her I’d gladly take her up on that offer any day!!

So the pictures you are missing from the rest of that room are ribbon, yarn, thread, patterns, paper crafts, and more. It’s like a mini craft store in there! They even have a sewing machine!

More on my thrifty shopping later – this isn’t the last Blue Ridge Hospice post and I can promise you that 😉

Love Always,

J

My Favorite Things!

29 Jun

These past few weeks have been some of the best I’ve had in a while so I thought I’d give you a list of the awesomeness!

1. Spending Money

I surprisingly don’t get much of this. Mainly because I give it all to my hubby, I make half of what he makes, and my etsy store doesn’t bring in enough to really count it as spending (more like paying for what’s already been purchased).

2. Family & Friends

I can’t get enough of them these days 😉 all I want to do is go have fun with everyone which is not making crafting easy but I don’t care! The pool, the beach, the bar! Let’s go!!!

3. New Toys

Thanks to my spending money I get to go out and have fun & SHOP! Ahh I love new things that make you smile when you wake up in the morning. Even if it is just a bowl that holds fresh fruit! It’s pretty gosh darnit!

4. Books Books Books

I have a pile of great books waiting to be read ❤ It’s like jumping into a new world and getting lost for a while! Since I can’t go on vacation – that is my vacation! I think I might vacation tonight after dinner on the patio 😉 I deserve some down time!

5. The Sun

It puts me in a fantastic mood, which means I should probably move somewhere nice and sunny year round. If only Brian would let me 😉 But it has been nice to lay out and soak up those rays!

 

What are some of your favorite things about these past few weeks?
