Takin' a Vacation...

Okay, I'm not really going anywhere, but i'm taking a short break to regroup and refocus...Things at work have been CRAZY busy, Nick (the oldest) is on summer break, and the baby....well, he DEMANDS constant attention. The poor guy has been teething so he's been extra fussy. :(
So just for a little while, I'll be a shopper on Etsy...In fact, I just bought this gorgeous purse on Etsy...i've had my eye on it for quite sometime and decide just a few days ago that NOW is the time to spoil myself a bit! Syl2830's store has the cutest and affordable handmade purses!!! I love her bags!!!

Sick babies, back hurts, and MORE STUFF ON ETSY!

Yes, i'm experiencing a multitude of things right now...Nick was sick during the week...he of course passed it on to Chase who is back is killing me...but i've managed to post a boat load of new items onto Etsy. I think God gave me a zap of extra energy this week. I'm not sure how I would have made this far without him. Yay God!
So while Chase is napping I thought I would use this time to ONE, update my blog (sorry peeps), and TWO post new items on Etsy.

I'm excited about this one...

But you never know...I design like a crazy person, I really don't have a "technique"...I just throw things together that I think will be pretty.

I like my new packaging...

I really like my new packaging...It's sort of my "thing"...packaging is SO important to me. Yes, it takes me a little more time to wrap it, but I think the end result is well worth it!

Meet today's featured seller!!!

Meet..."The Pink Designs"

I love the fact that she is just SO versatile, from beautiful dresses, pajama bottoms and jewelry she has a very nice array of things in her store:

1. Where do you get your inspiration from?

Everyday I’m inspired by the people and things around me… I like to browse magazines and see what other people are doing, but always adapting ideas to my own style. I like to take scrap materials or pre-loved clothing and seeing what I can create from it.

Websites like Etsy and Burda Style are awesome because you get to share your love of all things handmade, and seeing other people create spurs me on too. I also love going to markets that sell handmade and vintage items. I find it so inspiring when I see people selling items that they’ve created with their own two hands – their very own labours of love ♥♥

2. Tell me about your self and your design style?

I’ve always been a bit of a perfectionist, and have loved all things craft-related since I was a wee little thing. Jewellery making and sewing has been a hobby of mine for years, but I’ve only recently started to try my hand at selling my creations. I think everybody dreams of being able to make money doing something that they love, and I’m no different. I’m hoping that I’ll eventually get to sell at local markets once I have enough pieces in my collection.

When I design my jewellery and clothing, I have a really random way I go about it. I have no formal training, so I go with my instincts and cross my fingers that it turns out a beauty!! Every item I make is done with much love and attention.

3. What things do you shop for? What catches your eye?

I love shopping for jewellery and clothing items. I go through different stages of fascination. At the moment, I’m searching for the perfect ring.

Gorgeous colour and elegance are the main things I look for. I love really simple, feminine and pretty pieces.

I aim for beauty in simplicity, so I don’t like to over complicate things by doing too much. I really do believe that less is more.
