I Just added TEN new cast plastic banners to the shop. I’m super excited about these! Because now there are FOUR different designs to choose from. I like providing variety.
I’m non stop brainstorming more designs and also trying to figure out what the next saying will be. Any thoughts? I’m always up for suggestions.
This isn’t the only shop update planned for this week. I also have a special new product debuting this Friday! So please keep an eye out, because I’m super excited about them too.
New banners are in the shop! They are already selling pretty well, I wasn’t even able to get a screenshot for this post before the “sold out” flags showed up. You guys don’t understand just how happy that makes me!!! Thank you!
There are more colors then I’ve shown above, they just wouldn’t all fit on one page. As of this post I believe there is 13 colors left.
To go along with the update, there is also a Juxtapose Necklace sale going on. 15% off any Juxtapose Necklace in stock. No coupon code needed, discount applied in the cart. (how neat is that? Storenvy does it right)
I’m going to be good and walk away from the computer for a bit. A watched shop doesn’t boil, or something like that. Ha. I have some things I want to make for my niece’s 5th birthday tomorrow anyway.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!!!
I am super excited about the shop update I’m working on for tomorrow!! I kinda posted a peek at these last week, and then I spent all of this week cleaning them up and getting them ready (it’s one of a hundred reasons I’ve been so quiet)
My plan is to have 18 different colors of the plastic version, plus a screen printed gold & cream felt version in the shop around 11am EST. It’s first come first serve. If these do well, I have a few ideas for more (plus I’m open to suggestions!)
If you want to be notified when they go live you can sign up for my shop newsletter here, or keep an eye on my Instagram or Twitter accounts! (I’m having a giveaway on my Instagram account if your interested btw)
I’ve been having a lot of fun taking product photos lately. I’m not rushing like I use to, I’m actually thinking through each pieces background color and angle. I think switching over to Etsy helped with this. When I had my own stand alone shop, I wanted everything to be consistent and streamlined. I always used a natural wood background, and shot all the pieces the same. Now I am enjoying the look of all the different colors and how they emphasize the piece being photographed.
I also know its not “good” to use super colorful backgrounds, and that if you want to be featured on a blog or in a magazine you need ready to go photos on white background. At least thats what Ive been told over and over the past ten years. I don’t know if its true, but I do know that all of the above images make me smile, and I’m proud of them!
So onto the actual shop update… I’ve added a few embroidered bird brooches, a couple new necklaces, a pair of adorable earrings and a few rings! Check them out and let me know what you think!!
I just placed an order for new casting supplies and some fun new pigments (glow in the dark anyone!!?!). I also have a bunch of new designs coming in from the laser cutters and the 3D printers. I’m ready to experiment! Which also means, I’m open for some custom requests. I already have a small list for Blythe eyes, and a few arrow hairpins, so don’t feel shy if you’d like something special too. I really do love requests! It makes what I do fun and interactive.
This past weekend was spent doing one of the things I love the most… casting plastic! A great way to spend the weekend in my opinion.
I had a friend request some Blythe eye chips for one of her girls, plus I had some new 3D printed pieces I wanted to test out, so I put aside a big chunk of time to get them all done. I am so happy I did! It was so much fun to think outside the box and work with clear plastic for once. I even messed around with glitters, powders, fillers and beads. I now love it all!! I may be glitter obsessed.
I may have gone a little overboard with the eye chips too, as you can see in the first photo, but I’m ok with that. Whatever is left over, after friends pick out some pieces, I’ll add to the shop soon!
I also have a whole new line of necklaces, brooches, hair pins and bracelets now. I seriously can’t wait to share those with you. Maybe tomorrow I’ll do a sneak peek (as long as the weather permits photos, were expecting snow!)
