Swap Meet

I've joined a new site called the Swap Workshop. I was thinking it would be a great way to move some of the impulse purchases of supplies I've made - you know how it is: "Oh, this mini chainsaw is half price, it's so cute and I've been meaning to try my hand at ice sculpting". Story of my life.
I'm hoping it might also be a way of moving items which have been ignored on my etsy as I don't believe in renewing an item more than 3 times unless it had A LOT of hearts.
Swap shops could be a great boon for the crafters out there, after all we are each others best customers, plus you can swap vintage or supplies as well. Here's the blurb from the site if you think it sounds like your cup o' chai:

If you are anything like me you work very hard for a living, raising the kids, running the house and even holding down a "proper" job?

On top of this you choose to open your online shop because you love to make things or are passionate about life gone bye. In these difficult times wouldn't it be great to supplement the sales from our shops and get those little extras by trading or swapping the things we have!

Now, life is hectic enough without involving ourselves in another full time activity. So, what if you could choose a couple of items, list them somewhere and almost forget about them until another person wanted them? Sounds easy? Then Swap Workshop is the place for you.

In just the first 2 weeks, we have 35 new members, 40 listed items and so there is plenty to choose from. Membership is FREE, no item is for sale, just the cost to ship your item!

Take a look at our introduction and if you join before the end of August. You will receive free points when you list just 3 items!

Swap Workshop - the place to swap handmade, vintage or craft supply items!

Have a great weekend guys. Smooches!

Fall Hard

I made it into another treasury (I said that like I'm always in 'em - alas not quite).
This Treasury focuses on the hues of Autumn and features many wonderful Irish etsy sellers.
It makes even a summer bunny like me think wistfully about wrapping up for the colder months.
My Orange you Glad Now earrings are included.
