Deserae belly dances and wanted me to make a necklace that matched her tribal costume she wears when she performs at the Renaissance Faire this summer. I think it turned out pretty good. I hope she likes it.

I am so in love with this new fabric. It reminds me of the 80s when my family lived in San Diego, CA. I have already made two bags with it, one for me and one to sell. I made them both a little differnet so no two bags of mine are alike, but I just had to have one for myself.
The request for promos and samples has been going around alot on Etsy recently. I have been racking my brain trying to think of a fun (& inexpensive) way to add an little oomph to my business cards. I came across KittyCrossBones a while back on myspace. They make promo items like pins, mirrors, key chains, etc. So I decided to order some 1" pins and they turned out great! They worked with me on my design to make sure it would look the best on the pin. I personally thought that was going above and beyond to make sure my item looked the best it could. Plus they are always having sales so you can always get a good deal. I will be sending these pins out with a promo coupon to gauge the reponse. I will definitely be back for more.
