Another Christmas set

And this time - Keychains!

I thought about creating a small item that would make an excellent little gift to give around the holidays.
The idea that immediately came to my mind is keychains. Just because I gave a bunch of them out when I left my previous job and it was a huge success.
"finally, a gift that I can use", was the general opinion among the receivers :)
Anyways, I created a bunch of keychains (11 to be exact) with the Christmas theme in mind.
Have a look:

And now, I'm putting it all up for sale at my Etsy shop.

It was so fun to make them. I got to use my Silhouette SD machine, which is always awesome.
Not to mention the paint that has been lying here for ages just waiting for me to use it.

Thanks for stopping by!

Christmas set

Hey hey everyone!
You already know that I have a shop on Etsy, right?
Well, this week we started a holiday boot camp to boost up our shops.
It's pretty cool... We have to-do lists each week and we get lots of help with getting ready and plan ahead for the upcoming holidays.
Anyways, the first thing on my to-do list is to share a promise with you all.
Well, I promise to dedicate time to making new holiday themed items and list them on my shop.
I also promise to give the best customer service I can.

Having said that, I want to share with you all my new Christmas item which is actually a set of greeting cards.
This set contains six greeting cards.
Each greeting card measures at 3" by 3" and comes with its own cardstock envelope.

I haven't listed this set yet on Etsy, but I'll do that soon enough - I'll update you once I do.

They turned out pretty sweet, didn't they?
Hope you liked it.

Oh, that reminds me! I added another feature to the blog.
You can now find a "tweet" button on the right. Just in case you stop by my blog and want to tweet about it :)

Bracelet? Made out of buttons?

Hi all!
The wind of changes..... could it be?
A while back I had an idea to start exploring the arts of jewelry making.
So I thought and I thought and finally, I decided to make a bracelet. Instead of buying charms, I decided to use my humongous collection of buttons.
So, here it is:

What do you say? pretty cool, right?
The funny thing is - I don't wear any jewelry.. so I'm not using it at all. Any takers?
In conclusion - I don't think I'll continue with a jewelry line at the moment... it's not my thing yet..

Thanks for stopping by!

Words Mini Albums

So.. The crafting continues..
Well, actually, today I'm going to share with you a new idea that I have in mind.
I'm going to start making a series of word mini album..
What does it mean?
Well, it means that I'm going to take meaningful words and turn them into mini albums (each letter in each word will become a page in the mini album).
For example: BABY, MOM, DAD, FAMILY, LOVE and the list goes on and on and on...
Anyways, I'm proud to present the first mini album from the WORDS Mini Album Series: BABY.

I know.. no baby photos in the album.. It's only because it's already up for sell on my etsy shop.
Hopefully, I'll continue making some more mini albums in this series.
That's it for now - don't be shy. Tell me what you think. Are there any other words you'd like to see as a mini album?

Thanks for visiting!

The crafting gods have been kind

Hi everybody! What's up?
It's been a very productive weekend for me..I decided (once again) to give my etsy shop a boost so I sat down and made some things... It's so much fun to create again!
Look at what I did:
First I created a couple of mini albums.
In the first one I'm going to put pictures of Ori, my beautiful daughter (I'm sorry to say that I don't have any picture of this one - it has no photos of her in it yet).
The second one is already up for sell on Etsy.

After those two I decided to make some mini notebooks (you can see that I was in a "mini" kind of mood). I thought that I'd make a couple of them. I ended up making 4. It was fun. I got to use my bind it all and my paper trimmer. So cool!

I love time -  apparently I need it to complete old tasks... who knew?
That's it for now. Can't wait for my next creative session :)
