I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving here in the United States. I am having a Black Friday sale that I am extending through the weekend:

Make your two purchases, and then in the buyer message at checkout, let me know which item you would like for free. That way you don't have to worry about getting a paypal refund, or adjusted invoice!

New Fall & Christmas Items up on Etsy!

Thanks for being patient with me these last couple days. I have been getting ready for my first craft fair of the season. It went over pretty good! Sold some things, handed out lots of business cards, and got some more people signed up for the mailing list!

I was surprised at how many people had heard of Etsy! One gal even said, "Oh, I've seen these cupcake wrappers on Etsy, is that you?" and I said "Why..yes!"

I even ran into a couple people who have shops or do their shopping on etsy! How great is that?!

Here are two more fall sets I will have available on Etsy.
Yummy Cuppy Crafts

More items to come!

I won!

Yay! I won a giveaway! I never win anything! Well, I did win a bike back when I was like 10, but it's been a while since then!

I entered a giveaway for Lipstick Jungle Inspired Earrings...and won them! They just arrived today in a cute wrapped package (that actually match some cupcake wrappers I have in my etsy shop!)

I can't wait to wear them! I have been stocking up on my jewelry collection by shopping on etsy, and these are quite the addition!

Thank you Gurl Couture! I love them!

Since I have no idea how to make a treasury on Etsy, nor do I stand a chance of getting a free slot, I decided to so my own on my blog. I'll try to do this each month with a different theme!

Click on each picture to go to the Etsy shop where you can find that item!

Holiday Clippy Sets

I started out today by finishing up a custom order for super hero cupcake wrappers.

And then I worked on some more hair clips for Saturday's craft fair.
Here are some holiday clips I made tonight!

I currently don't have any hair clips listed in my etsy shop, but if you see anything you'd like, let me know, and I'll list if just for you!

Remember, I do accept custom orders!

Handmade Costumes

Happy Halloween!

I'm putting these pics on my craft blog because I made all 3 costumes this year! Yikes...won't be doing that again. Too much stress on mommy!

McKenzie was Dorothy, because we are dog sitting a little dog who looks just like Toto and she wanted to carry her around in a basket.

Trevor insisted on being Wyatt Super Reader from Super Why (PBS cartoon) This costume was my worst nightmare. There was not ONE costume online available, and obviously not in stores (especially not here in Hawaii) AND, not a single super hero pattern an any fabric stores. But, I managed to get it done....

Addison was a Ladybug (because Mommy wanted to try her hand at making tutus) This turned out so cute!
I took them trick or treating on the marine base because all you have to do is walk up and down a road or two and you have enough candy to last you until next Halloween. The kids had a blast, and wore themselves out!
