Quiet times

I have been spending a lot of time trying to get everything organised for my wedding on Friday so you have probably noticed that my blog and etsy have been very quiet. I will be back in a couple of weeks with lots of new items and back on board!!

Busy times!

My wholesale order is now finished! Oh it looks so cute on its box! I can't wait to see how they go in the new store they are being sent off to. Hopefully this is the first order with many more to come!! When I first starting listing on Etsy my dream was to have my items sitting in a store for resale! It is the biggest compliment!

Today I also discovered a new website!!! It is Pinkdoodle! oh I can't help but laugh at the name *giggles*. It is a online place to buy and sell 'creative goods'. It is very much like Etsy but it is a UK site which i nice for a change. I am listing most of my Esty items to fill my shop up but will be adding some new stuff in the coming weeks (I just need to fine the time :( ).

I also have something I want to save up for. It is the cutest laptop I have EVER seen! And its PINK!!! Argh!! *jumps up and down with excitement* It is Asus EEE and I want it soooo bad!! It is tiny! Now I need you to all go to my store and shop shop shop. I only need a whole $500!! I will send you a thousand thank yous!!

My little pretties...

For the past 2 nights I have been working on my first wholesale order! It has been a lot of fun but extremely tiring as I am doing 11 hour days at my full time job (to help support my crafting addiction). Now all that is left to do is cover the pencils to go with the sets! Then the painful part... Packaging.. my packing can take me hourrrsssssss. But I alway get good feedback which makes it all worth it :)
After doing this order I can barely type as 4 out of my 10 fingers are all burnt from the hot glue :(

Thank you gifts & Rubber Stamp, Stamp Stamp Stamps!!

Today I have been working on some new items for my store.
I have created a little stationery on the go kit. Perfect for keeping in your bag for the times when you need to jot something done while you are on the run! Unfortunately the photo doesn't do it justice... I am having a bad camera day, i think my batteries might be dying.

I have also been stocking up on some more thank you gifts to put in my little packages I send to customers. I have made some note match books with lined paper and stamped with my own hand carved stamp. I must say, I am really building up a collection of my stamps!! I keep thinking 'what can I carve and stamp now!' I just want to stamp everything!! My biggest trouble I am having is finding large erases!! Every shop I go to stocks the same ones!!

All of this stamp talking has got me wanting to carve a new one! Argh! help me, I think I might have a new addiction!
