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…

Five By Five: Hair Elastics – Day 1 of 50 New Products In 50 Days

Here it is, the first Five By Five of my November Creative Commitment… and it’s after five. Oops.

To say I’ve been busy today is a wee bit of an understatement. With the first of my craft fairs coming up this Saturday, I am in frantic getting ready mode. If you happen to be near Weare, New Hampshire on Saturday, come check out the John Stark Regional High School 5th Annual Arts & Crafts Market.

I’m also frantically trying to finish up the items I’m donating to the Real World Hero auction, which starts tonight at midnight eastern time.  Want to know what I’m donating?  You’ll just have to wait until it starts and go check it out!

And I’m absolutely thrilled to have received TWO contributions to my IndieGoGo campaign already!  I’m halfway to the $100 I need by November 10th to be eligible for the drawing of $500 in matching funds from IndieGoGo.  Don’t forget, if I am able to raise double my goal, all rewards will double, and if I get that $500 from IndieGoGo, I will count that in the total.

But enough about all that, you want to see my new hair elastics, don’t you?  I will have many, many more of these at the craft fairs, but these five are exclusive to my Etsy shop.

We’ll start with the way many people start their day… coffee!  I don’t drink coffee myself (I prefer energy drinks) but my husband can be a bit cranky without his morning coffee, so I can honestly say that I love coffee, too!  😛

Another thing I love is the beach, and these white shell hair elastics would be perfect for keeping the wind from blowing my hair everywhere.

And of course, I love music!  These Rock & Roll Guitars are great for my Rock Star personality (despite the fact I can’t really sing or play an instruments).

These knots remind me of Celtic infinity knots, and I love the silver and black tones.

And last but not least, these large round buttons would look awesome when I do my “anime buns” hair style.  I’ll have to get a picture of that one of these days to share with you. 🙂

And there we have it!  Tune in tomorrow for some new post back earrings!

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!!!  😀
