Big announcements

It's been a few weeks since my last post, but I've got big news this time so I wanted to wait until I was completely ready.

First off, in honor of American Thanksgiving, I'm having a sale in my Etsy shop! I've taken advantage of Etsy's new coupon code function and have created this code: THANKS10 which will give you 10% off anything in my shop, before shipping. The code is good through midnight on Nov. 29th, 2010. Here's a helpful article on how to redeem coupon codes on Etsy, but basically you just enter the code in the "shop coupon code" box upon checkout.

I've spent the past week creating, taking pictures, and writing descriptions like crazy so that my shop is as full as possible. As someone who is both American and Canadian I'm so very thankful to be able to celebrate this wonderful holiday twice each fall, and I'm happy to pass that feeling along to you with this sale. Here's a selection of Autumn-hued items presently in my shop:

Secondly, I'm happy to announce the Grand Opening of my Artfire shop!!! The focus of this shop will be slightly different than my shop on Etsy. Instead of wirewrapping and semi precious stones I'll be focusing instead on resin flowers, and vintage glass and metal findings. The idea is to produce modern pieces with a romantic, vintage vibe. I am, for the most part, inspired by Victorian culture, and the Romantic literature of the 19th century. Right now I mostly have rings and hairpins in my shop, but I plan to add more earrings and brooches, and I'll be creating coordinating bracelets and necklaces in the new year.

I'm also happy to announce that I've had the opportunity to do some guest blogging in the past few days. First, I was the guest finder for the Oh Canada! Team Friday Finds feature last week Friday. I filled in for new Friday Finds "finder", Leanne, of LeanneDesigns. And I was given the opportunity to do the Shotgun Shopping post this past Monday on the Handmade Highway. I had a lot of fun doing both, and am reinspired to write more frequently, here, on my own blog.
