My New Years Resolution...

I don't usually make one as I never stick them it but this year I am going to try really hard to be organised. Last year I fluked it and think I did ok but I not only need to keep my life organised, I need to keep my Esty store organised as it is picking up I need to make sure everything is in order.

I have wanted to have a white board in my room so I can see things which need to be done in a glance but now my wall is nicely painted, the last thing I want to do is go sticking things on it so I needed to improvise. I came up with some pretty ribbon which I think goes beautifully!

I also needed to sort out my packaging for my blobs. I have been able to get away with the normal zip lock bags but my packs are now changing quite a bit and the zip lock bags are just not working any more. I have given cellophane a go. It is extremely fiddly and takes a lot more time but I think it looks quite nice. Packaging is one thing which I try to improve on all the time as this is one thing as that is what can make or break your product or brand. I think my blobs look attractive in their new little packs :)

My 'very bright' pink treasury

My very first treasury! What fun!! I think it may be a new addiction! Next time i think I might do bright yellow! I like the 'in your face' effect it has on people :)

New Etsy Items!

After painting my craft room I have been full of ideas! Gee, why did I take so long to get it done!!

I have just listed my new stationery sets! I love them!

I have now included 2 new items to make my original office sets a bit more interesting. I finally found some BIG pebble and JUMBO paper clips! I have also included a matching pencil in the set. I will soon be adding pencil sets which will be around 10 pencils for $5. I think these will make really nice gifts :)

Make sure you stop by my etsy store to check out my other items :)

Craft room makeover!

The holidays are here and it is time to do up the craft room!! I have been running low on ideas for my Etsy store and had hit a real low so S agreed to take me to Bunnings and get some PINK paint for my room! (Gosh I feel like a child!!) AND it looks fantastic!! Here is a peek of how my craft room used to look!And Tada! this is now what it looks like!!

Isn't it beautiful!!! I brought a nice PINK chair from Ikea and some little baskets and other pink things to make my room look more beautiful. I am hoping this will now lift my spirits so I can get back into making things!

I will be back soon to show my new items!!

Today I had a big package waiting for me!! Lilley was delivered!! Isn't she beautiful!
I will post lots more pictures soon but she is fairly tired from her long trip.

Etsy is still going strong! Another order last night while I was sleeping. I am nearly up to an order a day. hopefully I will soon be saying 5 orders a day! Okay, maybe I am getting a bit ahead of myself.

I am really excited to be working on some new designs for my coasters. They have been a hit so far!

Stay tuned to see how Lilley is going in her new home!
