Lots to get done! Found some great display items for my daughter to use to display her jewelry on at the thrift store over the weekend. They just need a little paint. What a bargain! So very excited! Working on making some recycled boxes to box up items for customers at the bazaar. If I get some time this weekend I'll try to get a tutorial posted. They make great gift boxes for small items for Christmas! To make it even sweeter they can be made with any paper, card stock or cardboard packaging that you have around the house and they only take minutes to make!

Whats New!!!

There has been so much going on lately that I have completely ignored my Blog up to this point. I'm determined to be more proactive and pay more attention to my blog. So expect some great things to come in the very near future. maybe some giveaways, contests and features from Great Etsy Artists.

Some other things I've been working on are growing my Facebook fan page. Thats been a fun venture. If you are on Facebook stop by and become a fan. I pick a new theem every week and post my faveret Etsy items in that catagory. Its been a lot of fun. I've also been experimenting with making my own embroidery designs. This takes up moist of my time. Teaching myself new software has been interesting. When Im not working on new designs I'm helping my daughter.

My daughter is making jewelry and listing them in my Etsy shop. She has chosen Gem Girl for her DBA! It really fits her in so many ways!! It amazes me at how talented she is and how business minded she is becoming. She takes her jewelry to school and sells it to the ladys there. I can see her doing big things in the future.

Our Fresno Etsy Team ( Fresno Etsy Especial) is hosting a Handmade Holiday Bazaar Cirque Du Noel December 10th You can find out more about it on our Team blog:
or on our Facebook Fan page:
Ziggy Stitch will be a vendor! I'll be sharing a booth with my daughter and sister in law Andrea of Fatts Magee. So if your in the Fresno area Mark your calendars for an amazing shopping experiance!
