done one

this 6x6x6 box holds the 40 pairs of earrings i made for my first wholesale order! yes, i am done! it only took about 3 days to do everything that was needed, plus i threw in a magnet set as a sample :). here's to hoping these sell out super-fast and she needs MORE! :D

let's see, what else is going on today? i'm mailing that box ^, plus some pendant necklaces that didn't sell in my shop (and were about to expire) to a friend of mine (yay freebies!). i have a custom order for solid gold-accented pendant necklaces and/or earrings that i need to concentrate on, plus i need to design/order more moo cards, start making my newest line of washi cuties, remake some pieces that i sold recently, and mop the floors (friends are coming over tomorrow night!). plus, i'm really into my book that came in the mail yesterday, so i'll probably read a bit more of that.

oh, something i forgot to mention several days ago: my favourite author, chuck palahniuk (fight club, survivor, etc.), is going to be in austin for a book signing on june 5th! yes, i am totally going! wow, this summer keeps getting better and better :). the plan is to meet up with my friend jason (who was my history professor at one time) and go to bookpeople, where the signing is. jason's met chuck in the past, so maybe i can get a picture taken with him? brandon hasn't decided if he's going or not.

one more notable thing: gift sets in my shop are now just $25! i realized that i wasn't offering any kind of discount for essentially buying a pendant necklace plus a set of earrings, so that's why i reduced the price. now you save $1 by buying the gift set :). just a few months ago, i had the gift sets priced at $30, and while they were selling, i started buying supplies in bulk at a discount, so i passed it along to the customer, like any good etsian would! here's one of my favourites:

you can find all my gift sets here, in my shop :).

have a great day, everyone! i sure am going to be busy, but that's how i like it :).

Melissa, I finally got a chance to wear my jewelry! :o) Yesterday I wore one of the necklaces I just received, and today I'm wearing the earrings & necklace I first ordered. I got compliments on the jewelry today at lunch, so I thought I'd pass that along to you. I'm loving everything I've gotten from you! Thanks so much! :oD
