Rainbow Connection Ten By Five

Okay, I admit it, I love rainbows.  Trying to choose just five of my rainbow designs to post was much too difficult, so I’m giving you ten instead.  Deal with it. 😛

Let’s get the Rainbow Connection going with the Rainbow Basically Beaded Faceted Bead Necklace from the set of seven:

I made a bunch of rainbow items for my 50 new products in 50 days, and I’ve finally got them listed in my Etsy shop, so these next few may be ones you’ve seen before.

To go along with my other LGBT Pride Necklace, I’ve got this one:

You may need some rain to get rainbows, but you also need a bit of sunshine:

And of course, you know I have to have a necklace inspired by the song “Rainbow Connection” as sung by Kermit the Frog:

What, you didn’t see that coming when I posted the Kermit the Frog Straitjacket Hoodie? 😛

Don’t forget today is the last day you can use the coupon code RCIJ25 to get 25% off your order in my Etsy shop!  I’ll be adding a ton more stuff next month when I get back from Ohio, so lock in your sale price now by using the coupon code on a gift certificate.  Or if you just want to help by making a contribution to my gas fund, you can do so via PayPal with ChipIn.

Don’t know if I’ll get a chance to blog while I’m in Ohio, so if I don’t get to post again until August, enjoy the rest of your July!

Reorganization

Sorry folks, I’m caught up in reorganizing my studio and just didn’t have time to list the new rainbow products and finish up my colorful Five By Fives today.  You’ll just have to wait until Tuesday, when I’ll have a chance to do so.

I’ve decided to extend the  Christmas in July Sale in my Etsy shop through Tuesday, which means the coupon code will get turned off sometime Wednesday morning when I get up and start processing any orders before I get ready to leave for Ohio.  Orders placed after Tuesday, July 24th, won’t be shipped until August 1st, after I get back.  So if you’re thinking about ordering, please do so by Tuesday and use the coupon code RCIJ25 to get 25% off your order.

Remember, this code works on gift certificates too, so if you think you might want to buy something later (I still have TONS of stuff to put up) grab a gift certificate at a discounted price now!  I have $5, $25, and $100 gift certificates available, so they’d  actually cost you $3.75, $18.75, and $75, respectively.  And of course, you’ll have the full face value of the gift certificate to redeem any time you want, since they never expire.

Admittedly, I’m a little desperate for cash right now, and any orders are greatly appreciated! 🙂  So seriously, take advantage of the discount to get a gift certificate if you don’t see anything else you want, because there is definitely more coming once I get back from Ohio!

I’m taking this weekend off to spend time with Lorne and our friends, and Monday I’ll be buried in a paper for my marketing class, so it will be Tuesday before I can add any new products for you.  For now, check out the rainbow products I currently have listed in my Etsy shop:

I better get back to reorganizing my studio, since I only have about two hours to get it done!  Well, mostly done.  I know I still need some things from Ohio to get it completely organized, but this is a pretty good start.  I’ll have pictures for you when it’s all done in August. 🙂

Thanks so much, and see you Tuesday!

It’s Not Easy Being a Green Five By Five

And it’s not easy working in this heat!  I’ve been chased out of my studio once again, but I did manage to clear a path to the window, so we’ll see about getting that air conditioner installed soon.  For now, I’ll just hug the one in the bedroom and work in there, like I have been.

I think part of today’s heat is being generated by the release of Fox’s Folly, the newest hot fantasy erotica book by my friend Teresa Noelle Roberts.  I just finished reading Lion’s Pride, the first in her Duals and Donovans series (Fox’s Folly is #3, and a prequel to #2 Fox’s Den) and I highly recommend it.  I actually read it in two days, because the first day I had to put it down to get some sleep, or I would have finished it in one!  Don’t forget to leave a comment over on Teresa’s blog by July 18th for your chance to win a copy of Fox’s Folly.  It’s also being featured in The Romance Reviews Sizzling Summer Reads contest until July 21st, so go check that out to win other prizes.

I’m also going to blame some of the heat on my own foxy fiancé (see what I did there?) 🙂  Today is Lorne’s birthday, and the second one I’ve been able to celebrate with him.  We won’t be able to go up to Maine like we did last year, but we’re going to celebrate with our friends this weekend at the Hillsborough Balloon Festival.  Hot air balloons and fireworks… see, it just keeps getting hotter!

So let’s cool things down with one of the “cool” colors: green.  Starting off, of course, with the Green Basically Beaded Faceted Bead Necklace from the set of seven:

This next one is an update of an old design.  Originally I had made it with a silver chain, because I didn’t have any copper chain at the time, but I think it looks much better with copper now.

Copper looks so good with green, and I apparently can’t resist making things in this combination.  So here’s another fun design:

In a similar vein, antique gold also looks great with green, and here’s another Basically Beaded design with a completely different look than the first one, using smaller bicone and seed beads:

I am working on this design in lots of different color combinations.  It’s just so pretty and elegant, I must have it in all the colors!

But let’s get back to the green, this time going back to the silver for accent.  And throwing in a bit of geekery:

So that’s five, but I couldn’t resist throwing in one more, given the title of today’s post.  How about a Straitjacket Hoodie featuring this Kermit the Frog fabric?

I also have a few other green necklaces already posted:

And these ones are available in green:

It may not be easy BEING green, but it’s not that difficult FINDING green in my Etsy shop! 😛  And don’t forget, you can get 25% off your order using the coupon code RCIJ25 until July 22nd, when Christmas In July ends!

Five By Five Representing Christmas In July

Or maybe that should be Pre-presenting… whether you’re getting some early holiday shopping done or just buying yourself a present, Christmas In July sales are pretty awesome.  Many Etsy sellers are having their own Christmas In July celebration July 12-22, and I definitely want in on the fun.  So I’m offering 25% off your purchase when you use the coupon code RCIJ25 in my Etsy shop.  Please note this code only works for my shop, other Etsy sellers will have their own codes for their shops.  The code is good on any item in my shop, including custom orders and even gift certificates!

I’m going to be posting at least five new items every day during this promotion, so I thought this was a perfect time to kick off my Five By Five posts.  And of course, I had to do a Christmas theme!  Click on the pictures to go to the Etsy listing for more information.

And you get one more bonus listing, because I was thinking, Christmas and the holiday brouhaha tends to drive people a little crazy, right?  Sounds like the perfect occasion to wear a Straitjacket Hoodie to me!  And then I found this fabric:

Christmas Drives Me Crazy Straitjacket Hoodie - Made to Order - Christmas In July

Christmas Drives Me Crazy Straitjacket Hoodie – Made to Order – Christmas In July

Click on the pic to order your own custom made Christmas Drives Me Crazy Straitjacket Hoodie!  I only bought enough fabric to make one, and it was on clearance so I can’t guarantee I can get more.  Just imagine your family’s reaction when you wear it to your holiday celebration!  I’m disappointed I live too far away from my family to spend the holidays with them, or I’d make one for myself!

I also put up a photo album on my Facebook page with all the fabric I currently have in stock and available to make Straitjacket Hoodies, so go there and see if any of them strike your fancy.  I’m working on the ones that were claimed as perks in my IndieGoGo campaign, and finally have all the materials I need to make them.  Plus I’m trying to get my backlog of products up in my Etsy shop, finish my homework, clean my studio, and take care of wedding stuff.  No rest for the wicked, they say, and sometimes I think I must be really bad!  😛
