50% off SALE!

Whew, life is busy around here! First of all I am thrilled to announce that we welcomed our second daughter into our family last week! We are treasuring every newborn moment and also trying to adjust to a new normal. My elder daughter is head over heels in love with her new sister which is so lovely to see ūüôā

I am taking a couple weeks off of having to pack up orders, and taking several weeks off from making custom orders.

So, to celebrate the birth of our daughter and to make up for the fact that current orders will not be shipped until sometime later next week, I am offering 50% off of everything in my etsy shop! And yep, that includes clearance items as well!

So go ahead and get a head start on your holiday shopping this year! Use the code BABY50 during checkout to get your discount. Just remember that you are ordering the exact item in the listing and that it will not be sent out until sometime later next week.

Sorry for no pictures in this post, I am writing it from my iPad instead of my computer. I don’t have much time to sit down at the computer yet these days!

Happy shopping!

A Rainbow of Butterflies

I realized that I haven’t shared any of my butterflies lately! ¬†I thought it would be fun to put a whole bunch of them together in one photo file for you to see the rainbow! ¬†Okay, so it’s not a real rainbow, but I think it would be really fun to make a real butterfly rainbow someday!


If you click on the image it will take you to all the butterfly items in my etsy shop.  Some of these are there, some have already been sold, and there are also some in my shop that are not pictured here.

Stay tuned within the next month or two and I will be creating a tutorial to make the small butterfly to use for earrings, hair clips, pendants, or anything else you might want to use it for!  It is a pattern that I designed myself.  My first pattern was the large blue emperor butterfly.  However, I needed something smaller for hairclips for a custom order so I created the smaller, more simple pattern.

Christmas is Coming!

‘Tis the season…. to come up with new earring designs! ¬†Last year my Christmas earrings were of two designs:

Christmas Wreath

and Christmas tree

This year I thought it was time to create some new designs based on some of my other new earring designs and patterns. ¬†First up….

Mistletoe!    These earrings use my basic cluster/bunch earring design with a new twist Рsome mistletoe berries!


But that’s not it for this year – I’ve got some Pointsettia earrings in the making with a brand new design I’ve been working on! ¬†I should have that ready to share next week!

There are more earrings that are great for Christmas as well, even if they are not directly Christmas related:
