New items!!

Good Evening! Hope everyone is having a great week! It has been busy, busy around here! School is in full swing and so are all the activities! I have been creating like a mad women too!!!

I had to post a few of my new items! I am really getting into the mood for Fall and all the glorious Fall scents! I have managed to add several new ones to my list and today I made a couple and I thought they turned out cute (oh and they smell fabulous too)! I haven't even gotten around to listing them yet!! So you all get the sneak peak! ;) This one to the upper left is (as you could of guessed) CANDY CORN!!

This one to the left is fast becoming my fave!! I am probably going to get sick of it by the time Fall is actually here! It is Gingered Pumpkin and I love it! Just smells sooooo good!!

Well, I am off for now....going to get more candles made!
Have a good night all!

Tricia's Hand Crafted Monogrammed Note Cards...An Etsy Review & Giveaway! (CLOSED WINNER ANNOUNCED)

Who doesn't appreciate the one of a kind beauty and thoughtfulness of a hand crafted note card? I know I sure do.

So does Tricia Richner, owner and creative mind behind Tricia's Hand Crafted Monogrammed Note Cards. You have to check out Tricia's elegant, stylish cards! You can find a card for any occasion at Tricia's, from baby announcements to Holiday cards to everyday note cards. All of her cards are high quality, made from acid free, lignin free, buffered Designer Series Paper and 80lb. Whisper white card stock. Each card comes with its own open end envelope, perfect fit for her cards. I am telling you these are very nicely made, quality cards.

Over the last couple of weeks I have gotten to know Tricia a little better through our Etsy Team- Busy Moms of Etsy-. I received one of her note cards (which I love) and now plan on buying more for Christmas! I received the Baja Breeze Blue card (pictured to the left) monogrammed with an "S". I can not say enough about how nice this card is. I don't know a lot about paper and making cards, but this is by far one of the nicest cards I have seen. It is thick, much thicker than most cards you buy at big box stores. The card looks perfect, the monogram and ribbon are perfectly lined up and although the monogram is slightly raised up, it is not going anywhere! A very sturdy yet absolutely elegant card. The patterns and colors are serene yet sophisticated. My card came to me packaged well, with a protective plastic covering, and lighting fast shipping! Overall a really great product!

If you are looking for beautiful everyday note cards or thinking of the upcoming Holiday season, Tricia has the perfect hand crafted card for you! Christmas is fast approaching and now is the time to start thinking of which lovely hand crafted cards you will be sending your loved ones this season. I love her Snowflake and Jeweled Merry Christmas cards (pictured to the left) and she has many more to choose from!

August already??

Hello there!

Wow it is August already...I can't believe Summer has flown by so fast! Next week my 13 yr old, 7yr old, and my 4 yr old will be off to school!! I will only have 1 child at home with me for half the day!! Our 4 yr old will be going to 1/2 day of pre-school!! It has been a LONG time since only 1 kid was home with me. I don't know what I will do with myself! :)

I know I am going to try to get more accomplished with my shop and blog than I did this Summer! I am working on getting a couple of new things done for this blog and I have started making some fall candles and soaps that I will soon have out. I have this cute bat candle already listed but I have a few more to tackle too. I have started getting in all my fall and holiday scents, YAY! That is my favorite part! I love making all the fall and holiday candles and soaps...they smell so good! Some of my favorite scents are fall scents! I just love the new Gingered Pumpkin scent and the Witches' Brew scent is amazing! I am just so excited for fall and cooler weather! And of course all the trees change color, it is beautiful!!

This fall is also exciting for me because my best friend has joined the etsy team!! She opened up her jewelry shop a couple of weeks ago called wyjajewels!! She makes beautiful jewelry(sample to the left) so if you get a chance check it out! She also has joined the blogosphere if you would like to take a look! She actually posts on her blog unlike me who has been a complete slacker this summer!! :)

Until next time, Take care!
