About Me

My photo
This blog started out as a way for me to display and sell my handmade jewelry creations. I have set up shop on Etsy.com, where my shop name is "Dreamin of Beadin". The link to my Etsy store is located on the right hand side of this page. Please check me out!! If jewelry's not your thing, then check out the site anyway ~ there are plenty of talented artists selling lots of cool things there. For your reading pleasure, this blog will serve as a sneak peek into what's going on "behind the scenes" in my world. I love to cook, so there will be plenty of recipes, as well as product reviews and the occasional product giveaway (woo hoo!) I also love to take pictures of anything and everything, and I just bought a new camera, so there will be plenty of photos. And I like wine too, so things could get pretty interesting . . . Thank you for your support of me, Etsy and "all things handmade" :)

Etsy Front Page!

Sometimes the best things come to you when you least expect them. The last thing I expected when I opened my inbox this morning was to discover that one of my shop items was featured on the front page of Etsy. That's my "Noelle" necklace in the picture at top left. It has now sold :)
It is kind of ironic that I wasn't online Tuesday night to see it for myself. Normally I would have been, but I had had a pretty crummy day and decided to take a break from all things Internet related.
If you don't sell on Etsy, you're probably wondering what the big deal is. Without going into all of the details, let me just say that having one of your items make it onto Etsy's home page is the equivalent to getting your 15 minutes of fame. It is tremendous exposure for your shop. Some sellers, it seems, are luckier than others and are often featured. I am not one of them. Put it this way, this was the first time it has happened in the two years that I've been selling, or at least as far as I know. So, you can imagine that I was pretty geeked!
I have to thank two of my fellow sellers ~ jamieshelman was kind enough to send me a "convo" to congratulate me. I thought that was so sweet. Please check out this Seller's wonderful shop full of playful cat drawings ~ it just recently opened. I think my personal favorite item is this one, since I can most certainly relate to it. I am always amazed by those who can draw or paint, since I have zero talent in either of those areas. I wish Jamie much success on Etsy!
The seller who created this lovely Treasury that made it onto the front page is the super talented shellieartist. I've admired her shop for quite some time ~ you must check it out. Shellie creates the most uniquely beautiful works of art using fabric on wood. I've never seen anything like it before ~ truly awesome. It is hard to pick a favorite from all of her lovely creations, but this would be one of mine.
Thanks so much, Jamie and Shellie ~ I will not forget your kindness!

Jamie's drawings remind me of the children's book "Madeline". Way cool that you made the first page!!! You go!

Congratulations!!! Beautiful Treasury! Now that I'm looking at the screen shot, I think I saw it very briefly - what I don't get is how I didn't see your necklace - I know all your jewels by heart because I always admire them! :)

The cat drawings are awesome - I will be checking out her shop for ideas for presents for my mother-in-law! She's a cat lover, like myself.

YOur piece was so lovely that I made it first in my list and was honored to include it. Thank you for all your kind words and I hope you have a wonderful Holiday! Cheers
