Sunday goodness

After a rough week I finally got to do some store creations. I am so excited to list some stuff tomorrow. Set of six themed magnets will go in the store. Plus two journals I have been working on for two/three weeks. One is fun, pop, color, letters, WORD. The other is vintage, very vintage craziness. Seriously I used over a dozen very old very vintage, silver and gold buttons to decorate the journal. They are so interesting the detail and it just screams vintage, write awesome things in me.
So my only problem is what to charge for this very unique journal. I have been pricing my journals at 10.99 which I think is pretty fair. I do put a lot of love and attention into each piece. You can walk into a chain store and spend fifteen or more on a mass produced journal that everyone in town has, or you can come to my store and get a journal that is unique that no one has. As of yet I have not ever replicated a journal idea, nor do I plan to! I have too many great art supplies and ideas bouncing around to keep reproducing the same thing. That would be boring for me, and for you!
The thing that is different about the vintage button journal, is that each button is old(er). The buttons ages reach from 50 or more years old, the detail and color is great. The youngest button would be thirty. I mean when I say vintage, I don't mean just went out of style last year.
Plus it has taken a lot of work, I am not even finished yet!
I will post a picture tomorrow and some comment/advice on price would be well welcomed!

Method behind the madness!

At the opinion of my father I lowered my magnet prices down a dollar. It seems a little low for the work it takes to make them, but I really want people to try them! I really want them to sell because I just think it is a unique idea.

Check em out!

Plus I got me a treasury today, first ever!

Super cute key chains

You need to check out this artist.

Glassidentities, that is the artists shop name. She does glass business cards, and other awesome items like the one above. She sent me this key chain which is a replica of a print in my shop. I mean it looks perfect, not blurry, just bright and very eye catching. It is a great way to promote your shop, because people will have to look. I don't know about you but I drive a lot and have my keys out A LOT!

CHECK HER OUT, you won't regret it!

Sunday new item!

Vintage Star Candle Holder

This is an antique wooden star candle holder, I picked this piece up from my antique shop and I knew all it needed was a little tlc and some extra attention.

The wood is decoupaged covered with recycled blue scraps of paper, very collaged and eclectic. The finishing cover of decoupage is tinted blue with several different tints of glitter mixed in for a kick!

It is an REVAMPED ANTIQUE! Will go perfectly on any table or spot in your house that needs and oompf! Will hold several different sizes of candle! The 3.5 inch metal candle plate is safe for the candle heat. The wooden star base is approx 11 inches

Birthday week

This week is my birthday week and since I do not want to celebrate, and I am really depressed about my birthday, I am going to do the only thing that makes me happy, CREATE!

So this week everyday I will list a new item! Keep watching the store!
