Etsy Sale Ending Soon!

Deja vu in the rain....Kyoto, Japan, March 2005

While walking to the library the other day in the rain, I had an overwhelming sense of deja vu. The light, air temperature, spring smells and drizzly rain reminded me so much of being in Kyoto, Japan. I really had to look at the houses, just to make sure I was still in Alexandria...

Working hard in the studio, trying to get an order all together for the Shakespeare Theatre, trying to keep it tidy so I can find my scissors as I work. I'm also trying to get some fun, bright new spring bags made. I got some splashy Pollack-y lime green fabric from my aunt in San Francisco that I am currently in love it. Cool stuff happening with it.

Just wanted to give a gentle reminder that my Huge Etsy Birthday Sale is coming to a close soon. As of midnight, on Tuesday, March 31, everything will be back full price. Right now, however, things are 32% off the LISTED price.

This means that the $25 hats are now $17. The $55 purses are $37.40. The $15 fingerless gloves are $10.20. The craziness continues for *each and every item*, but only for a few more days!

Snap up some great deals now!~Jen

St. Patrick's Day Sale with CREST Team Members

Some members of CREST are holding a special sale for St. Patrick's Day. Sales end on March 17, 2009.

Check out the Crest Blog for more information such as details on the sales and pictures of the items.

My personal extra kick is FREE SHIPPING all day long, in addition to the promotion already going on- Birthday sale with everything 32% off! I know, craziness!

I haven't posted much up in the last week or so, not that I haven't been working. I have got some 'new' vintage buttons from my friend Jen Judd, jewelry artist and rockin' chick, and some all the way from the left coast, sent by my aunt. I love vintage buttons and can see myself getting caught up in collecting them, just as much as I do fabric... oh, well, at least these take up less space!

Enjoy your St. Patrick's Day and have some green beer and a slice of Irish Soda bread YUM!~Jen

Green Tip~
While green beer might be ok, stay away from green corned beef! ;)

HUGE Etsy Birthday Sale!

A few items on sale at my Etsy site,

It's my birthday, but you get the presents!

In honor of the upcoming anniversary of my birth, I am running a month long Etsy sale on *ALL* items in my shop. This happens to also be a great time for a spring sale, cleaning out winter hats, fingerless gloves, cutie bags from last season and other assorted fun things. I have been trying to get pictures together and post as much as possible, but there are items still to come! I have much more left than I thought I did, sadly for me, great for you.

If you aren't sure how etsy works or are a little intimidated, don't be! I'm fairly new to it also, but I would love to go through your sales process together if you need a hand. There are plenty of tips and how tos on the site too. Everyone wants to make this easy for you!

Meanwhile, as I am doing all that, I am also digging through application deadlines for shows this year. However, better yet, I am digging through *acceptance* notifications too! I'll be returning to some of my best shows from last year (Old Town Arts and Crafts Fair), a few that are changing for the better (DC Counterculture Festival) and some brand new ones for me (Village Marketplace in Fairfax). I am finally starting to get pumped about the market season ahead, trying to get some new stock together and having fun in the process.

Check back as the month goes on, I'll be posting more on my site. Hope to see you in etsyland~Jen

Green Tip~A different kind of green~
