New Items In My Etsy Store!

Hey Guys! I hope you are all having a wonderful week! I've been busy playing in the snow and making new items for my Etsy store. Ok...maybe not playing in the snow...too cold! We got almost 7 inches on Friday...it was beautiful!! Sad to see all of those snowmen melt:( Have you ever tried snow ice cream? It's really yummy and easy, it's just milk, vanilla, sugar and cocoa mix if you want to make it chocolate. I'm really hoping for more snow...I just love it! But I'm also ready for spring, we've got at least another month and a half so it might as well snow! Back to my items...speaking of spring...I know we will all be wanting to spruce up our homes and maybe wardrobes for the warmer weather, so I thought I would make some tassels and jewelry. I have made Christmas tassels before, but wanted to make some for spring and everyday. Everything you see here is listed in my Etsy store on the left hand side of my blog.

I found these cute metal birds and just had to make them into tassels. These are pretty big, so they would look good hanging on a piece of furniture, large candle holder or lamp, even a doorknob or bed post...just about anywhere!


The cross and Fleur De Lis are both very elegant.

I will be making more frames too...just wanted to try some new things. Here are some of my necklaces... When I was at market, I noticed that this is the style right now... lots of different beads mixed with crystals. These really sparkle, they just don't show up well in the pictures. They are not sterling silver, but still very good quality. I only made items that I would wear...just in case! lol...


Here is an idea of what one looks like on...Ha! Do not enlarge this pic, it's already close enough...lol!
I like these necklaces because they have so many different colors and can be worn with just about anything. Now that sounded like a real sales pitch! hehe!
I will also have bracelets and earrings in my store soon. I am really getting back in a creative mood! I lost it a little bit after Christmas...it seems to come and go! I think we all have times like that...Have a great rest of the week!

Your Etsy Items are drool worthy! Especially with the Ribbon, Love it! Im going to have to break down and purchase a frame, they are just gorgeous!!!

ANASHD said...

I really like your style of tassel..very unique. I have noticed every "tassel maker" on Etsy has a different version of a tassel...all beautiful, of course.***BEWARE*** Tassel making can become addictive Check out my tutorial on how I make mine!(blue chips will be given out on a 'as needed' basis)
