I recently posted some new listings on my Etsy shop and wanted to take a chance to promote them. I know that I listed a sneak peek in a previous post, but I wanted to show them off a little bit more!!
Hand Drawn and Hand Stamped Stationary and Cards:
I have been drawing and creating cards for friends and family for a very long time now. Dan asked me why I wasn’t selling them. Well… I didn’t really know how to answer that, so here are some card creations! I hand stamped some of them and drew the others. I am currently working on a custom stationary card set for a friend (Hand drawn Lotus flowers). These are great for gifts, you can use them for weddings, use them for thank you cards, birthdays, you name it! I love custom orders, too!!
I wrote about my thumbprint tree book that I drew in a previous post on my blog. I had really wanted to do this for our wedding for some time now, and after I made ours I realized that people were selling them on Etsy. I decided that I would put mine up just to see if I could get any sales. I love drawing trees! I love weddings!…. What could be better? I am hoping that someone would be interested in purchasing one of my hand drawn trees because I think that it would be wonderful to be a part of someone’s special day.
I also have been making little rose earrings for brides and their bridal party. The pair of earrings that I have listed are white roses with blue ribbon. I can also make roses with ribbon to match the wedding colors. Smaller earrings can also be made for your flower girls. These are great gifts for your bridesmaids and flower girls, or if you need a little gift for your bride… this is perfect!
I have listed these plumeria clips (and I have earrings listed) under wedding. I thought that these would be wonderful to add to the theme of a tropical wedding, or they would be great for a tropical destination wedding. I use Sculpey polymer clay and chalk dust. I paint the uncooked Sculpey with the chalk dust to add the color. I can make them to fit our wedding colors! Wonderful for birdal wear and bridesmaids alike!
Some of my more unique pieces that I am currently selling are my dog leash bracelets. I have two styles listed on the shop page, but I am also accepting custom orders. People can send me their dog’s leash (as long as it is 1 inch wide) and I can make a bracelet for them. This is great if you have a dog like mine who chews through every leash that you buy for them, or if your beloved pet has passed on and you would like something to remember them by. I am very excited about my recycled dog leash bracelets and I hope that other people will be, too!
The last things that I wanted to show off is my Octopus arm necklace. I wanted to promote these because they took me a very long time to make, and I think that they are really quirky and unique. Again, these are made from Sculpey Polymer clay. This clay has a little bit of a sparkle to it. The suckers on the arm is really what took the longest to do. Each sucker was created by rolling tiny spheres and using a paper clip to attach them to the arms. It might sound easy, yes, but it is extremely tedious! Again, great for a gift for a friend… or even for yourself!!
