Being BLITZED by the Daily Dose of Handmade Team

Last week I was selected by the team “Daily Dose of Handmade” to be BLITZED in Team Treasuries on Etsy. A very excited announcement that ended up in 8 treasuries that CandieInk was featured in during a week. I am truly honored and very excited to share with you the treasuries made.

What is an Etsy “Treasury”?
A treasury is a list of 16 items (or less) selected by the Treasury creator. Anyone with an Etsy login can create a Treasury. It is a great way to feature items you really like, or help other shop owners get more exposure. We are after all a community with very talented artists who supports each other reach the goals we are dreaming of.

To see the full treasuries (16 items) click the Treasury Titles and you will see how fantastic they all are πŸ™‚ The creator of the different treasuries are also listed under the picture – click on their links to take a look at some other great shops!

Letter of the month – June

I enjoy writing these. It gives me a chance to both showcase my items and to say hello to my customers in a more personal way. No matter how many followers I get I think I will still be pretty personable and speak from my heart. Because that is who I am..

Here is a link to the Letter of the Month – June in case you missed it!

Something New

I know I haven’t produced anything new in a while.. Been kind of without inspiration. But with the spring knocking on the door I feel it coming again. Been outside sipping every ray up. How about you guys?!

Here is my newest addition to my Etsy shop: A set of 2 Poppy Flower Prints. πŸ™‚ Each print is 8×10 inches. Works wonderfully on any wall in any room. Let’s bring back some colors in our lives!

Instagram #candieink

Instagram is more fun than Facebook! – There, I said it!! It is fast and to the point – one picture says more than a thousand words! I can look at the pictures of those I follow and I feel something, I comment, I like, I miss, I smile, I giggle, I look away, I am amazed… etc.. You all know what I am talking about right?! πŸ™‚

Instagram is fab!

You can find me on this fantastic app by the user: misspkm or you can just check out my candie ink related pictures using #candieink

Easy as one – two – instagram!

Valentine’s Day vs. Love

I am not a Valentine’s day celebratee.. (or whatever you would be called). I honestly think it is kind of silly that roses triple in price (if that is even enough), every restaurant is full, and that people throw around hearts everywhere… Sure it is cute and I would gladly accept a bunch of beautiful red and pink roses and have a romantic candle light dinner.. But I’ll take that any day of the year πŸ˜‰ you know..

But Valentine’s day is still around the corner and it will happen no matter what I think about it. So to celebrate LOVE rather than just Valentine’s day I have some great pieces that could enlighten your home with something sweet that will last (and not ruin your new years resolution diet).

“You are Beautiful”
Is a poem I created for the importance of seeing how beautiful every individual is in themselves… Poem reads: β€œThe ideal or perfect cannot be described in reasonable terms. The closest facsimile to perfection is not the idea, not the quantified or qualified. It is the fact that perfection is a living character. For if there is a beauty of anyone, there is a beauty of all” Get it here for $20

beautiful

And on the lighter side… but still says a whole lot of how much love is thrown around in your home — almost like Pillow fight πŸ˜‰ Get it here for $20

As always — get your Candie Ink Prints at Candie Ink on Etsy and don’t forget that these prints can be changes to any colors to match your decor and preferences! That is what handmade is all about!!

Testimonials Update

Have you checked out my testimonial page lately?

I just updated it with some excited new comments I have been getting from some of my customers! It is so NICE to hear that I can make people happy with what I create.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart! ❀
