Tuesday Top Ten: Favorited Items December 18th-24th

I know it’s Wednesday, not Tuesday, but I was on vacation and I’m pretty sure everyone can forgive me for not posting my weekly top ten on Christmas day.  I had a lovely time visiting friends and celebrating the holidays, but I’m happy to be home again, especially with the storm that’s supposed to dump a foot of snow on us tonight.  Don’t think I’m going anywhere for awhile!  So I’ll be concentrating on getting the rest of my Five X Fifty items posted, cleaning up my studio and the rest of our rooms, and spending some time with my husband while he’s on vacation.

So that’s my coming week, let’s talk about the favorites in my Etsy shop from last week.  There were 15 items favorited, three of which got more than one.  Of the ones favorited once, three were repeats from last week: Mood Ring, Silver Key Simple Charm Necklace, and Hot Pink Beaded Charm Bracelet; and three were from the Day 18 Five X Fifty: Brown Ball Hair Pins, Gold Shell Hair Pins, and Brown and Black Paw Hair Pins.  So that leaves us with six with one favorite:

The past week was pretty hectic, trying to get everything done and shipped by the deadlines and prepped for leaving town for four days.  But from what I’ve heard, everyone who received an item I made was very pleased with their gifts.  I’ve already mentioned my plans for this coming week, but it will also be the final push for my IndieGoGo campaign which ends on December 30th.  I’ve reached 70% of my goal and getting that last 30% would be awesome.  Of course, doubling it so that I can double all the rewards would be even more awesome!  I have a couple of ideas for a last minute push, just need to hash out the details before I make any announcements…

Five X Fifty: Day 9 – Snap Barrettes

I teased you with a possible Monday Musings today, but I’m afraid I’m not going to deliver.  My brain just isn’t on track for doing much reflection or writing, so it will have to wait a bit longer.  I will be sharing the reflection paper I wrote for my Critical Thinking class on Thursday, as it is about why I have a good life, and seems perfect for Thanksgiving.  And it was a comment on this paper that I was planning to address for a Thursday Thoughts or Monday Musings, so it makes sense to share the paper first.

Today I will deliver on a promise, however.  Remember when I said I was going to bring you more snap barrettes?  Well today is that day!  You know I’ve been eying this for awhile…

See what I did there?  And there?  😛

Okay, okay, let’s try something prettier.  How about some flowers?

They’re kind of creepy, but rather cute, don’t you think?  Or not, if you’re arachnophobic.  Maybe you need to signal for help…

And there we have Day 9!  And today’s the 19th, so that means I’m only 10 days behind… oof.  I spent most of the day playing with glue, so when that dries I’ll have a few more for you.  I still have a couple of hours left to do some sewing, so that should finish up a few more.  Then there’s the photographing, the listing, the writing of the posts… whew!  But I’ll get it all done, eventually.  This week is probably my last big push to MAKE ALL THE THINGS for the craft fairs.  Unless I completely sell out of stuff this weekend (one can only hope!), I should have plenty of stuff for the last two, plus I have the Five X Fifty items I’m still adding as I go.

I am hoping to get several more things up in my Etsy shop  in the next couple of days, as I will be doing a Black Friday/Small Business Saturday/Cyber Monday promotion.  Details of that will be up on Friday morning before I head off to the Cornucopia Craft Fair.  If I might make a suggestion to REALLY take advantage of the special I’ll be offering Friday, November 23rd through Monday, November 26th: go make a contribution to my IndieGoGo campaign.  You’ll have a gift certificate to spend in my Etsy shop, plus you’ll be able to choose an item for free.  Or if you make a $50 contribution, you’ll have $210 to spend!  And if I manage to raise double my goal by Thanksgiving, you’ll have twice as much to spend over the weekend!  So be sure to tell all your friends, too!  Check out the FAQ about the rewards for my IndieGoGo campaign for more information.

Okay, the sewing machine is calling me to get back to work, so I had better snap to it!  😛

Five By Five Halloween Sampler

  • Five By Five = five new listings by five o’clock

This Halloween edition of Five By Five gives you a sneak peak at some of the new products I’m making for the craft fairs I’ll be selling at in November and December.  You’ll be seeing five more examples of these five types of products in my upcoming 50 New Products In 50 Days, as I mentioned in my last post about my creative commitments for November.

In an effort to reduce my massive button collection, I’ve created a ton of new items that will make great stocking stuffers and inexpensive gifts.  All of today’s new products feature buttons or flatbacks, and this is just the tip of the iceberg!

First up we have hair elastics, or pony tail holders.  Look for more of these on November 1st!  This pair features white skull and crossbones buttons on black elastic bands.

Next, I’ve created some fun post back earrings.  Look for more of these on November 2nd!  This pair features spooky ghosts and are chunky but lightweight.

And where do you find ghosts?  In haunted houses, of course!  Here’s a Haunted House pin, and I’ll have more pins for you on November 3rd.

That old house is probably crawling with spiders, but I bet they’re not as cute as this spider ring!  Look for more adorable rings on November 4th.

Other creatures you might find in an old boarded-up house like that is bats.  Check out these adorable bat snap barrettes and look for more snap barrettes on November 5th!

And there we have it!  A sneak peak at some new products, some adorable Halloween themed items, and a plan for posting more new items.  Wow, look at me go!

And just because my life isn’t complicated enough, I’m considering adding another IndieGoGo campaign to the mix, incorporating the 50 New Products In 50 Days and raising funds so I can continue to make more samples and expand my product lines even further.  Which means I will discontinue my offers for $210 worth of Rewondered products for only $50 and the Half-Price $20 Rewondered Gift Certificate for only $10, so if you want those, better jump on them!

Speaking of jumping, I better hop to it and get back to MAKING ALL THE THINGS!!!  😀
