Tuesday Top Ten: Favorites the First Half of 2013

Been a long time since I did one of these, but I thought with yesterday’s post it might be nice to take a look at what the most favorited items were for the first half of the year. 130 different items received a favorite, with the top ten garnering 6, 7, 8, or 9 total.  I’ll count them down, starting with those that had six favorites.

And don’t forget, you can get 50% off anything in my Etsy shop using the coupon code CELEBRATE through July 4th!

Looks like Hockey and Seashells are the most popular themes, and I’m not surprised to see my Long Tu-Tu Tulle Skirt at the top of the list, it’s one of my favorites too!

I think these Top Ten lists are kind of fun, but without new items being added, they’ve been a bit repetitive.  So for now, I am thinking I’ll just do one at the beginning of each month, covering the previous month’s most favorited items.  But I’d still like to post a Weekly Top Ten list, so I’m going to look into other themes.  Feel free to share your ideas in the comments, or email me at rewondered@gmail.com.  And tune in next week to see what I’ve come up with!

I have been a very busy girl this past week.  I started a new term of college again, and that’s kept me hopping.  I’m trying to get ready for Birka which is only a week and a half away now.  And I’ve been doing some reflecting and making plans and coming up with ideas… which I will reveal in February.  Oooh the suspense!  😛

Tuesday Top Ten: Favorited Items December 25th – 31st

Wow, what a year 2012 was!  I ended the year as I have for the past five years: broadcasting on The Cape Radio for my annual New Year’s Eve Marathon.  I only lasted 13 hours this year, as I woke up from my nap before the show with someone else’s voice and otherwise was NOT at 100% physically.  So I did my best, but fell into bed a little after 8am.  I’m now on my new show schedule on Tuesdays from 4pm Eastern time until sometime between 7pm and 8pm, whenever my husband gets home from work and is ready to do his own show.

So that gives me a fairly busy Tuesday now, doing this weekly post and my internet radio show!

This week’s Tuesday Top Ten includes items that were favorited in my Etsy shop between Christmas Day and New Year’s Eve.  Fourteen items received a favorite, with four of those receiving more than one and ten tied for 5th place with just one favorite.

Repeats from last week:

As horrible as that craft fair at the hockey center was, it seems the skate and stick charms I bought for it were a good investment!  I’m looking for some field hockey and soccer charms now, as I have had requests for those.  Any other sports you think I should be on the lookout for?

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 18 – Hair Pins

Slowly but surely getting caught up.  Don’t know if I’ll be able to get all 50 up before Christmas, but hope to have them done by the end of my IndieGoGo campaign at least.  As they say, the best laid plans… or is it just me who always has things happen to disrupt my long term plans?

Anyway, let’s have a look at my new hair pins.  I made a bunch of these for the craft fairs, so there will be more added in the future, but for now I’ve got these five up in my Etsy shop.

Any of these can be chosen as your free item for a $5 contribution to my IndieGoGo campaign.

After Christmas, I’ll also be doing some posts detailing a list of products you can choose from for each of the contribution levels.  Uh oh, there I go making plans again!  😛

Five X Fifty: Day 15 – Christmas

I had meant to get this post up yesterday, since it was 12/12/12 and there’s the whole 12 Days of Christmas thing and instead of five items I have twelve, but it didn’t happen.  I was busy all day yesterday working on new items, relisting old items in my Etsy shop that had been removed because I took them to the craft fairs instead, and photographing these twelve items.  By the time I started to list them, it was already nearly 11pm and my bed was calling me, so I gave up and got the listings done this morning instead.  So my whole “12” theme may not make sense today, and the special I was running yesterday is technically over, but because you are reading this blog and have been so patient with me, I’ll let you in on a secret:  I have not yet deactivated the 121212 coupon code, so you can still get 36% off your order if you place it before I get up tomorrow morning at 7am eastern time and turn the code off.  Here’s your chance to get your holiday shopping done at a great discount!  You’ve only got 12 days until Christmas… ooh, there’s that number again!

With less than two weeks to go, it’s time to get into the Christmas spirit, and I don’t mean the ones behind the bar… though if you want to indulge, I’m not going to stop you.  I might ask you to share, though!  But before we get too tipsy, check out these festive necklaces, earrings, pins, and hair elastics!

I also have a bunch of other Christmas themed handmade necklaces…

I still need to update pictures of some of my older items that I relisted.  It’s amazing how awful those early pictures are!  It took me entirely too long to figure out how to use my camera, and I could probably still use some more lessons, but I’m much happier with the ones I take now and will be updating all those old pictures as soon as I can.

Hopefully seeing all these fun Christmas designs will get you into the holiday mood… and the holiday shopping mood! 😛  Don’t forget, you can use the coupon code 121212 and get 36% (12+12+12=36… get it?) off your order until I wake up tomorrow morning and turn it off.  And if you really want to go on a a shopping spree, head over to my IndieGoGo campaign and make a $50 contribution so you can get a $210 gift certificate to spend in my store… with that coupon code you can get about $328 worth of my products for that $50!  Just choose “other” for your payment method when you place your order in my Etsy shop and leave me a note in the comments section that you got a gift certificate on IndieGoGo, and I’ll verify everything and send you an invoice for anything over the amount of your gift certificate.

I’m currently $405 shy of reaching my goal on IndieGoGo, and $1405 short of doubling my goal… remember if I can raise double my goal, I’ll double all the rewards, so please share this link: http://www.indiegogo.com/rewondered2 and you might just get to go on another shopping spree in my Etsy shop! 🙂

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I need to go work on getting Day 16 up…

Tuesday Top Ten: All-Time Favorites

I decided to start a new weekly feature here on my blog, showcasing the Top Ten items that were favorited in my Etsy shop over the past week.  But because this is the first of these posts, I’m going to go back over the entire two years my Etsy shop has been open and bring you the Top Ten of all time.

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…

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 X Fifty: Day 7 – Beribboned Banana Clips

It’s Thursday, and I was going to do a Thursday Thoughts for you, but I have homework looming over me that’s due tomorrow, so perhaps I’ll save that subject for a Monday Musings instead.  Ooh, a mystery!  Whatever could that subject be?  I guess you’ll just have to tune in Monday to find out!

For now, we will get on with Day 7 and my Beribboned Banana Clips.  These are so pretty with the ribbons cascading through your hair!  I need to get either a model or a photographer for some pictures of how it looks when worn.  For now though, you just get to see them hanging on my wall.

This is an item that can be custom ordered in any color combination, so I only have one listing up in my Etsy shop, with variations you can choose from or you can make up your own color combination.  But I have five options as samples to show you.

Can you guess which one is my favorite? 🙂

Other color combinations not pictured:

  • Water – blue, turquoise, and light blue ribbons
  • Earth – brown, cream, and black ribbons
  • Spring Leaves – green, lime green, and peridot (light green) ribbons
  • Patriotic – red, white, and blue ribbons
  • Princess – hot pink, lavender, and light pink ribbons
  • Rock Star – red and black ribbons
  • Tiger – orange and black ribbons
  • Bumblebee – yellow and black ribbons
  • Christmas – red and green ribbons
  • Wild – as many colors as possible in no particular order

And of course, you can create your own color combination, such as school colors or your favorite colors.  Great alternative for a bride who doesn’t want to wear a veil, a fun accessory when you go to the club, and perfect for cheerleaders, Color Guard, and dance teams. I offer team/bulk discounts: if you want 5 or more, they’ll be $12 each, if you want 10 or more they will be $10 each. Please message me to set up a custom listing for team/bulk orders.

You can choose one of these as your free item when you make a $15 contribution to my IndieGoGo campaign.  Huge thanks to those who have already contributed and shared the campaign links!  Y’all are awesome!!  (Yes, I say “y’all” and I’m from Oregon and live in New Hampshire.  I’m strange.  Deal with it.)

Alas, I must get back to the homework for now.  I hope to get a bit more caught up with these Five X Fifty posts over the weekend, as I don’t have any plans to leave my house.  My husband is very much looking forward to sleeping in on a Saturday again! 😛  Have I mentioned lately how lucky I am to have such a wonderful, supportive husband?  I really think I am the luckiest girl in the world to have him in my life!  And I’m not just saying that because I know he reads my blog. 😉

Okay, okay, enough with the mushy, must do homework… arrrgh!!
