Monogram Mason Jar

This great new Monogram Mason Jar is one of my favorite pieces.  Living in the South monograms and Mason Jars are part of daily life. I love them!

We carry four different sizes in all of our products but 18 inch is by far the most popular in all our designs. It’s cut from 1/4 Inch board and painted with a light blue paint across the body.  We add a touch of silver glitter to the letter to make it pop. Who doesn’t love sparkle?

We paint the “lid” silver and also put glitter on it to ensure we have a lovely shine on this great door hanger.

In the photographs are of an 18 inch and it’s perfect for a free-standing pieces or stand alone door hangers. 12 Inch makes a perfect add-on for a wreath. You can find this sweet piece here. Stay Tuned today we are going rustic and bringing out some great products from re-purposed wood.

Man Down! Or Woman in this case!

Oh the FLU! How brutal! It was a rough week last week when I came down with the flu. My brain was still spinning with tons of ideas but my body just wasn’t having any of that. I was shivering and couldn’t get warm but running a fever of a 100+.

I’m “oily”. I love essential oils so as soon as I felt the fever I started to diffuse oils in the house and made myself a great tea to sip on while I waited in line at the minute clinic for my flu test. By that evening my fever had broken and I was relieved. The Doctor had told me the fever would last for a few days but I kept diffusing and drinking my tea and I’m grateful to be back at my desk today.

Thankfully B & E stepped up to help me while I was down. In one day I dropped two cups of coffee and one ice water. That was the day my husband kicked me out of the kitchen and said, “PLEASE go sit down I’m tired of mopping the floor”. Whoops! Sorry, Love! I guess my brain and my body weren’t in sync. My brain said, “Go Go GO!!” but my body said, “no no no!”. Actually I think it said, “Screw you lady! I’m not moving.” but I can’t prove it.

I’d say the days of cleaning up coffee are over but as I type E is cleaning up the cup that he just knocked off my desk. Maybe tomorrow!

Stay tuned for an Etsy Review. Today we are looking at a baseball themed necklace. As a baseball mom I adore the idea but as an Etsy buyer does it pass the test? Follow our blog and find out!

Welcome!

Hello! I am very excited about this blog.  I’ve tried blogging in the past and just couldn’t keep myself motivated to blog about “random” things. What was the point and who besides my own family would find it interesting?  It wasn’t until recently when I thought about starting a blog for my business that I caught the spark! Now I understand that drive to post and create that bloggers talk about! I am looking forward to sharing my love of all things Etsy with you within this blog.  If you are a buyer or a seller I hope you will find lots of valuable information here. In the next few weeks you will see product reviews, interviews with other Etsy Shop owners and a few how to’s from some super talented artisans!

Have a Craftastic Day!
