October Etsy Update

October is easily my favorite month of the year. I love the cool weather, the foliage is beautiful, and I have no problem eating pumpkin-flavored everything for a solid 31 days. Halloween is also one of my favorite holidays, specifically because I love creating my own costumes.

This is a quiet month for us with regards to craft shows, so I've been working on listing more items on Etsy. Here are some of our most recent jewelry listings.

I absolutely love these earrings, specifically the color palette. 

We all need a little bit more color in our lives, right? These cute rainbow earrings with moon & star charms will brighten up even the cloudiest of outfits :)

I love the way that these earrings look like birds flying through a bright blue sky.

Don't these beads remind you of swirly clouds in the sky?

I really think that these translucent yellow beads look like slabs of honey
I also think that the little bee charms are adorable!

Celebrate fall with these unique beaded leaf earrings!

The thing I love about Etsy is that it has a community atmosphere. In order for one shop to succeed, all shops need to succeed. This past week, I took the time to create a fabulous, crabulous treasury of crab-themed items. Check it out!

Apple Scrapple Festival

Thank you to everyone who visited us at the Apple Scrapple Festival! It was a beautiful day and we had an awesome time. Because of the large volume of people who attended, I was too distracted to take as many pictures as I would've liked. Here are a few pictures I did manage to get.

It was FREEZING at 7am. The temperature hovered in the 30s for a while.

Because we were located on a corner, we rearranged the way we set up our booth. 

The Crafty Crabs: now accessible from two sides!

Daera's earrings sold especially well on Saturday.
It's always exciting to hear people say they appreciate handmade jewelry.

Lots of new items!

I made a nifty little bobby pin board.
 I will admit, it was a struggle to get the magnet strips to lay flat...

I'm so happy to announce that coasters are back! 
Not only are they NEW, but they are also IMPROVED!

Again, thank you to everyone who stopped by. We were very happy - and very exhausted - by the end of the day. Some of us went at 7:30pm...

I realize this may be the last thing you want to hear, but the holidays are just around the corner (GASP.) I am making a conscious effort to beef up our Etsy shop before the big rush hits, and I'm planning on adding new items frequently. Please keep us in mind when planning your gift-giving game plan!

The patchwork-patterned bag is off to a good home, so I added another bag to the shop. Check it out!
