This week has been quite an awesome week, and it's only MONDAY!
First, I had two awesome giveaways. Congrats to those that won!
Next, I had two items featured in the gift guides. One of them was actually in three different ones!
This one was featured in the June pearls gift guide!
It is made with fantastic gold pearls that are wire wrapped to a length of chain and have a beautiful czech cut glass bead on top.
I was so excited about this when I made it. It was my first creation with these pearls and I'm so happy that it made it to the gift guide so that so many wonderful people could find it more easily.
I had always questioned the real significance of the gift guides, and often wondered if the really made that much of a difference. But this little guy ended up with over 150 views in 4 days. So, questioning is all over with.
The next one that made it was this key book pendant. Which is totally cool to me because it's a new line of book marks that I've only had up for a couple of weeks!
I used a red ribbon with a large pewter key. At the bottom hangs a bunch of red and aurora
orealis glass beads. And the book it's attached to isn't too bad either.
This one was featured is currently featured in the teacher's gift guide, was in the student's gift guide yesterday, and then was in another one but I can't remember what it was.
So, thanks Etsy admin for that!
And, last but not least, I came home today to find that I am an alternate on a front page list. It's not the front page exactly, but it's close enough.
This fancy-shmancy wire doodle is the alternate. I don't know if it will show up, but I feel good knowing that I'm closer than I was.
My mom made this one. It's really cute with a variety of brownish beads and yellow beads, all on a copper wire with fun wire wrapped shapes at each end. The whole thing can be viewed here.
So, all in all, it's been a pretty good start to my week. hopefully my good luck will continue and maybe all this wonderful featuring will lead to lots and lots of sales!
Now I just need to find time with my day job to make, list, and take more pictures of stuff!
