Shipped Today

I shipped this out today. It's going to the East Coast - Washington, D.C. It was the very last one with the glow-in-the-dark stars. =) It's such a fun bracelet, and I hope the buyer loves it! It won't be the last one, though. They were so popular, I'll definitely be bringing them back to the shop sometime soon. There is still one more mood bracelet left in our shop! Check it out by clicking the picture below.

Changes, Changes, Everywhere!

I had forgotten to mention on my blog that since getting back on Etsy, there are soooooo many changes!!!

First off, there are these things called "circles," and I'm still not completely certain what they are. I just know that it's a way to stay connected with what your friends are doing on Etsy. For example, when someone adds our shop to his/her circle, it lets me know. If someone favorites one of our items, it shows up in our Etsy account. If someone in our circle makes a treasury list or favorites an item or shop, it shows up in our circle. So, basically, it's a way to stay "in the know," I guess.

Then, all of a sudden, one day I went to the community section of Etsy to find out that the forums section got a makeover! No more promotion threads! =( That was one of my fave places to go and stop to chat. I'm still confused as to why they did away with the old forums. Now all I know is that there are a whole bunch of new teams that have formed in an effort to replace the promotions threads. I've joined a few. =) But it still doesn't seem the same as the old promo threads...

First I had been away from Etsy because my computer had crashed. I got back to Etsy (somewhat) for just a couple of weeks, and so much happened. We have a new addition to our family...A baby girl. Since her arrival, I've been slowly getting back to Etsy and to blogging. I'm considering it a sort of vacation or time off from "work" in the online world.
Coming back to Etsy and all its changes is just so overwhelming, though! But --- We've been making some new creations, and also working on our chocolates to earn money for my daughter's end-of-the-year trips this school year. I've been making a new light box (it's been slow-going, but I'm almost finished with it). When it's done, I'll be snapping more photos, and I'll post them here first! I promise!

With all the time off of online activities, I noticed that I lost a few followers along the way. =( At one point I had exactly 300 followers. Now there are a few less. It saddens me, but at the same time, today I see a NEW follower, as the number is back up to 298 instead of the 297 the last time I checked! So, I hope that with getting back to work in the online world, I'll gain some new followers and readers. And to all those loyal followers/readers --- thanks for hanging in there with me!!! I appreciate it. =) I haven't had much time lately to read or visit the blogs that I'm following,but I will eventually. So, if you're a new follower and have a blog, share it with me in the comments and I'll follow you back.

Have a great rest of the week everyone!!!

More Input

I need more input for the upcoming giveaway!

I've only got one comment with the last post (thanks, Picciolo!!!), but I'd like some more. I want to hear what you would like to have as the prize for the giveaway. So far, it's looking like a SunCatcher...But do you have a favorite one? If so, leave a comment and let me know. If you think the prize should be something else, leave a comment and tell me!

I've been super busy, and I haven't had much time to post or do Etsy stuff. But as soon as I get some pictures, I'll post a few new items here on the blog (and then on Etsy). Thanks for all your patience. My readers are the BEST!


Thanks for your help!
