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 🙂 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!

Christmas crazy

meDo you also feel like time is just being sucked into a hole and you didn’t get to use it before it went? I feel like I am just a spectator of it at the moment. I can’t even get a whiff of it. Time that is…

Still trying to get the Christmas shopping together but it is a slow process. On top of it I have to get stuff that will fit in a USPS “if it fits it ships” box or no one will enjoy them anyway. All my gifts are leaving the country and heading to Sweden where my family is. Well no one will get anything unless I find stuff.. Damn it! I knew I should have started in August!

I am currently absorbed in tasks that have nothing to do with Christmas. Planning a beef and beer fundraising event to help a friend who just got diagnosed with neropancreatic and lung cancer… Hopefully we can get enough money to make a difference. If you care to donate or help out just go here: Stand up 4 Kevin

On Saturday it is wedding time. Another friend is getting married! She is like my American sister in fact. Her parents really took me in when I moved here. So to stay on budget for the wedding I was first going to rent a dress from RentTheRunway instead of buying one I would probably only wear once. But then I decided to go even cheaper and is now MAKING a dress instead. Stupid decision since I really do NOT have time for such a thing… But that is me. Planning is EASY – sticking to the plan is another story! And ideas come and go… they seem great in the beginning… Me in a nutshell

So in the midst of thingsBruno4, I am still trying to work my regular job, learn applied Kinesiology and muscle testing, keep up with my Etsy orders, teach dance once a week, be a wife, a dog owner, eat, sleep and exercise.. I honestly feel I don’t have the energy to give each task my fullest attention and I hate it! But at least I never have to be bored 🙂 Life is good after all!! 😀

How are you all doing? Are you going Christmas crazy too??

Maybe it is Christmas

I haven’t experienced Christmas as an active Etsy seller until this year and it might just be a coincidence – but I have sold 3 items in a few hours 🙂 It makes me so happy that the stuff that I like someone else likes as well!!

I have sold 2 [SWEET AND] Adult Sweatshirts and 1 [SWEET AND] Long sleeve tee for girls.. It is so EXCITING!! 🙂

25% off NOW through Monday!

As Black Friday is coming to an end – I hope you all got a satisfying piece of it – I am keeping my doors open throughout Cyber Monday with some great deals… Because; No matter how nice it is to run around at the mall with hundreds of other people trying to find something for everyone on your Christmas shopping list – it might just be nicer to do it from your sofa in your PJ’s…

I love Etsy and all the crafters and artists you can find there. So even if you do not find anything in MY shop I suggest you look around Etsy.com.

I have some new items geared toward the adult crowd and soon I will be adding some more clothes! 🙂 STOP BY AND TAKE A LOOK… Looking doesn’t cost you a dime! 😉

And if you DO feel like shopping with me.. I’ll be extra nice and offer you 25% DISCOUNT on EVERYTHING. Use Code “BIG25” at checkout for the discount to be applied.

Happy shopping and Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
