I'm Kinda Behind...

Argh!! As I've mentioned in the previous post, I'm organizing a little craft fair/party for this Sunday in my backyard. There's still so much to be done! Thankfully, I have these two days off and was able to go down my checklist and finish some stuff for both the party and my shop.

One of the things I'm really happy about accomplishing today was getting some business cards printed. I can't believe that my shop has been opened for seven months and I still haven't gotten it together and make some business cards! Since I don't have enough time to get them professionally printed (by Sunday), I bought some DIY business card paper from Avery, used their online template program, and finally printed a stack.

I was always wary of homemade business cards for fear that they don't look clean and professional, but I got the Two-Side Printable Clean Edge Business Cards paper from Avery and they actually look pretty good! :) Their online program doesn't provide a lot of fonts, so I designed it first in Photohop, then imported it onto the template. Works great! No downloads, and you can save your finish product as a PDF file.

Probably not the cheapest way to go, but it works for now! :)

My First Treasury (East)! My First Exhibit!

Thanks to Etsy's new Treasury East, I was able to curate my first treasury ever! It was a little harder than I thought, but it was definitely very fun! It's a collection of beautiful sky blue items that I've found, ranging from clothing to jewelry to photographs, and I've named it After April's Showers. Please check it out and leave a comment here!

My shop has been approved as an exhibitor this month on Brittni's beautiful site, Papernstitch! Please check out all the beautiful items she has on this site! Check out my shop here! :)

One last bit before I gotta run...I have organized a small craft fair/party here in Oakland, CA. If you live around here or in the area, feel free to stop by this Sunday, May 2nd, 2-6pm, say hey, and enjoy the party! Click on the image of the flyer below for more info.

Love of Pink

It's almost spring time and I'm loving the warm days! Although the bay area has been really unpredictable, this week has been blessed with fairly decent weather. The beautiful days have been inspiring and motivating. :)

My work was kinda slow tonight for a thursday night, but then I realized that today was the deadline for filing taxes. From my experience, this day is usually pretty slow at a restaurant. If you have refunds, you probably file it and got it already awhile ago. For those who have to pay, some may put it until the last minute. Who knows.

Anyway, I'm just relieved by the mellowness of tonight. I got to leave slightly earlier, hung out with my boyfriend before we went home... it was great! Then, when I got home, I received a convo from TBead that says one of my tags are featured in her newest treasury! What a wonderful way to end the night!

I just recently bought a candle from TBead. All her candles are made of 100% natural soy wax. I got the "rain water" candle and it smells amazing! Grapefruit, lemon and wonderfully refreshing scents! Please check out her shop for her soy candles and pretty jewelry too! :) Anyway, I'm ty-ty, gotta go to bed soon...

Snail Mail and Turquoise Love!

My job has been consuming every ounce of energy I have lately, but after a hard and chaotic day today, I came home to find that couple of my tags are being featured in a couple of different arenas! Totally made my day! :)

The first one is a feature on Snail Mail Aficionado's blog. She has such a beautiful, vintage-looking site (totally up my alley!), and she features many different artists that I honestly have never come across. Please check out the feature here.

Secondly, I was messing around with Craftopolis tonight and found out that one of my tags are also currently featured in a treasury! What a pleasant surprise! I get to yield my knowledge of the screenshot again! :)

Anywho, I'm exhausted and I have five whole days in front of me... have a great week and please sleep lots for me! :)

Earthy and Heavenly...

What a beautiful day it is! It is my day off and I woke up early with the bright sunshine on my face. It felt like the possibilities are endless, and the day's adventures have just begun... but here I am, still sitting at the computer in my robe at one in the afternoon! I need to leave the house! But before I do, I would like to share with you two treasuries I'm currently featured in. These collections are simply gorgeous, and as the title suggests, earthy and heavenly!

I recently found out how to take a screenshot, so I can actually keep the collections of treasuries my tags are featured in. I know I'm technologically behind, but that's ok, better late than never! :)

The first one is curated by Etsy seller, TBead. Please stop by her shop and check out her unique jewelry and candles! Also, check out my turtle design for her logo and shop banner! :)

I hope you enjoy them like I do! I am going to go have fun in the sun...

I Love This Treasury!

Wow, I can't believe it's Friday again! Where had the week gone? Anyway, much has happened this week and I'm very excited about a couple of the projects I've started. They're still in the beginning stages, so I'd rather not talk about it too much...but here's a hint: underground shopping event. More about this at a later date, now that I have gotten other people involve, it's actually moving forward...

Before I go, please check out this beautiful treasury by dreamyvintage! One of my tags are currently featured in it, so click here to view.  It expires on Sunday, don't miss it!
