My neglected blog

I have no excuse except the same excuse-- I just don't think to blog as much as I did a few years ago. I think I get caught up in all other aspects of my life and small business, that it is very much just a matter of forgetting.
Now with that being said, the latest happenings are I am currently running a giveaway on jaebumfangirls blog. Be sure to enter for this adorable pirate pouch!

5 Days- $5 sale coming up!

Sometime towards the end of April (not sure of the exact date yet), I plan on having a 5 DAY- $5 SALE!! It will be for many of my best selling little zip pouches. I need to start retiring some of my little zip pouches that I have had in my shop for several years now. Change is a comin'..... well not a huge change. Mainly new fabrics and I am currently working on a new design for my gadget cases. Etsy has many new sellers with gadget cases, so I am trying to be like always a little ahead of the style/design game... hopefully my first few new designs will be listing in May!
Just in time for summer :)

Ok so back to the SALE!!! Here is a preview of just of a few that will be in the $5 sale :)

Once I know the exact dates I will be sure let you all know!

New Year- Brings NEW Designs!

I always get the itch to create all new designs with a new year! This year is no exception!
First my latest twist on an old design-
Eco- Friendly Document wallet with a hidden magnetic close! Love it !!! So fun and cool to hear it click but not see it :)
Also great because of the added layer of batting to make it soft on the outside.
Just made 4 and listed them in my shop-- Love this color the most personally--purple punch.

Then I am improving on my purse organizers since one of my customers suggested them. So now they will have an added layer of interfacing so they can stand on their own.

Last but not least, I have wanted to get out of my category of handbags and purses for awhile, but still work with fabric since that is my addiction. So I just finished two lovely fabric storage bin organizers. I hope to have more listed by the end of the week. I know I can always use more household organizing so hopefully buyers will like them too.

buying for trade secrets

Recently I have been experiencing quite a few buyers who are purchasing my items to gain some inside knowledge to my success! I think they are under some sort of delusion that if they can just look at one of my items there were be a hidden secret that exposes it all. How do I know this you may ask? Well, they seem to receive the item, realize that it is a top quality item at a great price but nothing magical about it. So then I receive a message, a very rude and insulting one stating that they want a full refund. They state all sorts of lies about my claims and proceed to demand a refund.
Well, it does make me kinda laugh because if you go back and look at their feedback history and do a little research it all becomes quite clear who and why they are upset. No inside trade secrets were provided at all--lol. So they have wasted their time and money, let alone their own
delusional disappointment. Then what makes matters worse is when I reply in a professional and kind manner, stating that if they return the items to me in excellent, unused condition then I would be more then happy to refund the cost of the items-- WHAT? I did not throw insults back at them, I did not stoup to their level-- how irritating------- oh you gotta love it.

But I am on to each and every one of you and yes, I am watching and possibly waiting too :)

Now on another subject:
Bought some lovely new fabrics that should hit my shop sometime this week!
Here is a look at an adorable owl fabric -- too cute imo
