Black Friday & Cyber Monday Sales

Wednesday, November 24th, 2010

I’ve decided to simplify my sales this weekend at my etsy shop so that everyone can have an equal chance to own a unique handmade piece made by me. The sale price will automatically be adjusted on Etsy, their times will be the following:

Black Friday Sale: Nov. 26th, 5:00 am EST – Nov. 27th, 4:00 am EST

Cyber Monday Sale: Nov. 29th 5:00 am EST – Nov. 29th 11:00 pm EST

Facebook fans will have the advantage of an ADDITIONAL SAVINGS on top of these already discounted prices, AND only facebook fans will save all weekend long. The details of that sale will only be announced through a Facebook update.

I’ve been preparing for a fall craft fair, Puces Pop, on the first weekend of October. So I’ve been making all sort of new things, for example, the lantern necklace:

The Lantern Necklace

I also explored the fall must-have: a pair of beautiful boots. I found a lot of amazing vintage finds on etsy, check out the post here.

My Saturday featured seller this week was Drywell, who has a quirky sense of humour which she injects into all her graphics (see the full post here)

The Tastiest Pig Part, $10.

Finally, I revealed the beautiful item I will be giving away to a newsletter subscriber in my Goodies from Venice post. To double your chance, tweet this giveaway on your twitter & comment on this post.

Hope you guys are excited, the draw for the watch will be on Sept. 27th!



Fall Fashion

Friday, August 27th, 2010

As much as I love summer, seasonal changes always excite me because of new fashion! When colder weather comes along I always take out clothes that I haven’t worn in so long it seems as if I am getting a whole new wardrobe! Of course, there are always little additions to the closet to be made at the turn of each season. Here are a few items that I am adding to my collection this fall:

  • Golden Elephant Necklace from my shop, find it here.
  • Army inspired coat from here.
  • brown over knee boots from here.
  • Bubble beret in cherry from Soft Spoken.

what do you guys think? What will you be adding to your wardrobe this fall? let me know on twitter or facebook!

Play Dress Up!

Monday, August 23rd, 2010

I’ve always LOVED Polvore. A great site which allows you to set up outfits like you see in magazines like InStyle. I suggest you check it out but be warned you will be sucked in if you are anything like me! In the means time, check out this mini editor that they allow you to embed into your own blog! So cool! What do you think of the choices I’ve made?

A Vessel Fit for My Heart

Monday, August 9th, 2010

Hello Readers!

Welcome to the first e-mail newsletter! As promised, this will be a once weekly thing, and I won’t be sending you any spam. I WILL be sharing with you special tidbits and previews that no one will be privy to other than yourselves!

First of all I have some exciting announcements to make:

1) I’ll be visiting Venice, Italy for the first week of September! And one of you lucky feed subscribers will be able to win a little gift from Italy. I’ll be purchasing something lovely for one of you there in Venice, and sending it to you as soon as I return! I will also take a photo of me buying the item to make sure you know that it is Venice- Authentic!

2) I have just been informed that I will be participating in this great Montreal Fair: Puces Pop! So if you’re in the area, or know anyone who is, you should drop by on October 2&3 rd to say hello! (see website for details) What’s mega exciting about this is that I will be launching my fall.winter line at the fair!! you could be the very first to see all my newest creations!

As for what I’m working on right now…

Here is a beautiful vessel I absolutely love:

Corezone, Secrets Vessel

Corezone, Secrets Vessel

The concept is to write down your secrets on small pieces of paper and place them inside the vessel. After the only way to get your secrets out is to break the vessel.

Corezone, Secrets Vessel

Corezone, Secrets Vessel

I am thinking of making one but out of silver, and the concept wouldn’t be to break it, it may have hinges on it, so one could possibly open it up. I’m not sure. The only thing I know now is that it will be the size of a real heart.
