Flourish Leather

13 Jun

A few weeks ago Danielle launched her shop Flourish. She makes braided leather bracelets that are just the best! I ordered mine fast and I love them. I also have a blue one and a pretty (slightly) iridescent white one. I love how they fit my natural “tree hugger” style and don’t clash with my feathers. Go on and check out her shop on etsy!

New necklaces!

12 Jun

I just posted these up in the shop! I don’t go on about my shop a lot around here, but this is what I’ve been working on for the last few days.

 

Feather fun

21 May

I made and finished a few earrings last night. I haven’t been working on new earrings in the last two months or so but I had a custom pair to make, so I got to it. I thought it would be a good idea to add a few pairs (maybe five) to my shop and one or two singles.

The pair on the top left are for someone, but since they seem to be popular I’d like to make a few more similar (but not the same!) and a few variations.

I made the pair underneath last night and they should go live in my shop in a few hours.

The single earring on the right is one I started months ago and never finished until last night. It will also go live in my shop in a few hours.

So, how’s everyone’s weekend going? Have fun! xoxo

Thursday was made for shopping!

12 May

Today I thought I’d remind everyone that there is still a discount code up for my shop at Etsy.

Clicking on the photos below will take you right to that earring in the shop.

Also, if anyone is interested, any of my earrings can easily be made into hair clips.

The discount code is ‘GREENXFEATHERS‘ and it is good for 10% off!

Here are a few things you’ll find there.

Have a great Thursday!

Teapots and toys

9 May

Today has been pretty good! It started out way too early though. I had to have some blood work done. My appointment was at 830am, but I got in early and was home by 830. I snuggled back into bed for a little… ok…. a lot. It’s technically my summer break so it’s ok. For lunch/dinner Chris and I went to the Taco Bus in St. Pete. I had the vegan tempeh quesadilla. YUM. Afterwards we went to Daddy Kool for a few new toys. We each bought a BFF blind box.

I got the cupcake!!!! It was exactly the one I wanted. This was not the first time I got exactly what I wanted out of a blind box! Chris got the little hamburger one.

After Daddy Kool we decided to pop into Goodwill, just to have a look. I picked up a corning ware casserole dish and these:

I’m a little sad that I couldn’t find the last one, but at least I was lucky enough to find the ones I did… at .75 cents each!

Then we went over to the other Goodwill, not to find the other measuring cup, but just to see what was what. I found this super awesome teapot. It is in great shape and adorable…. $3.

Also, last night I finished the blanket I’ve been working on. I’ll post pictures later. Happy Monday! xoxo

Posting on Etsy

12 Mar

I thought since I only had a few items on Etsy, I’d move some things over from Storenvy. It seems the only attention my shop on Storenvy is getting is from other sellers looking at it from the forum! Also, a few of my pieces on Etsy have gotten a few likes and hearts. I thought, maybe I might have a little more luck over there. After all, Etsy is known for handmade and vintage. Now before you go calling me wishy-washy, everything is for sale somewhere and if you want to buy it check both shops. I need to get some things moving. I’ve gotten too many compliments, but not enough interested enough to purchase. I just don’t think the right people have seen my work yet. Here goes!

In other news! It was almost a mail day. The rings supplies I ordered a month ago finally came in BUT the stupid male man we have won’t leave packages in our mail box no matter HOW small they are. We were both home even and he still left a “pick up” card. Idiot. I like our normal mail lady. She leaves us our small packages. I hope the idiot mail man rips his stupid shorts.

New workspace!

10 Mar

Yea! I went to Ikea today I and bought a workspace for myself. I’ve been using a tiny round table for homework and making jewelry. While it is a beautiful antique table, it hasn’t been working out. Sometimes I use the kitchen table, but then it becomes a messy catch-all. Instead of buying a desk, I went to the scratch-and-dent section and bought something that looks like it was supposed to be a desk or maybe the side of a shelving unit. It’s finished white and it is 29.5X49 inches. I don’t know. All I know is it fits nicely over top the little round table.

I wasn’t too bad in Ikea. I could easily spend more than 4 people earn in one year there. I bought the desktop, 3 little stuffed toys for Cinque and Cheetara, a candle and a bath mat. Oh and a mat to work with sculpey and not ruin the new desk AND a tea leaf thingy. Well, done. Go me!

Just real quick

8 Mar

I just dropped the price of all my rings at hellosundae.storenvy.com to $10!

Quick, huh?

Round 1: Flea market 1, Jenny 0

6 Mar

Last night I had everything all packed up and ready to go out the door this morning, see?

After I got everything set up this morning I finished a few earrings I had already started and waited for the market to open to the public.

As you can tell from the score above, I didn’t score. Lots of people looked and my work received a lot of compliments. I’ll try again on a Saturday in a few weeks and see how it goes.

Don’t forget to stop my my facebook page for a special discount at my Storenvy shop, hellosundae.storenvy.com
