Last post for KiraAnnDesigns

I'm very sorry to see such a wonderful shop leave as a featured seller. It's been a very short week that has flown by. If you haven't visited KiraAnnDesigns shop you have to do it soon! This is her last day as the featured seller, but I will leave her link up for the next week.

I have fallen for her creative cards. These are 8 beautiful note cards that are just gorgeous. They're so bright and colorful, they have me anticipating spring! Sending one of these cards would be a great way to put a spring into someones step, especially to someone you love who may be going through a rough time. They are $6, and worth every cent!

While I was browsing I also came across some lovely tags. Great for those valentines gifts for that special someone, to attach to the flowers for mom, and many more creative uses! You'll get all 4 for only $3!

Don't forget there is a direct link to KiraAnnDesigns shop from my blog. Just click on her Etsy shop link under 'My Fave Links. I've definately enjoyed having KiraAnnDesigns as a featured seller on my blog this week, and I hope you have too. Leave a comment to tell us how you feel.

No butterflies this time :)

Ok, I'm trying not to post too many butterfly pics. I've been posting them alot lately, so I promise I'll cut back on them (at least a little).

I saw these paper buttons and thought 'Wow! How cool are those!' And when I think that, I just HAVE to share my finds with my followers. The paper buttons below include 10 blue buttons and 10 cream buttons. You get all 20 for $1.50. These would be great to make cards with, or to scrapbook, just all kinds of creative things!

I couldn't take my eyes off of these adorable mini note cards. They are just too cute! You can get this set of 8, including the envelopes, for $6. Alot of my followers sell on Etsy. This would be great to buy so you could stick a quick little 'Thank You' kinda note to send along with the purchased item. Better yet, why not send it to previous buyers to ask if they had enjoyed the item they bought from you, and to let them know before anyone else that you're having a sale? These are beautiful cards, and you won't get this kind of quality from walmart.

Well, I've gotta hit the books and study a bit. Hope everyone has a great day!

Leave me a comment, let me know if you're the least bit curious with what my surprise is going to be next month. I at least want to know if anyone is interested in the slightest to know. :)

Cute new items in KiraAnnDesign's shop!

I was wondering around in KiraAnnDesign's shop, and I've spotted some brand new listed items! Check out these!

These bookmarks are REALLY cool! They are origami paper bookmarks. And if you read as much as I do (especially Nicolas Sparks books) you're gonna need these! You get a set of 4 for $2. What a steal!

And of course I couldn't pass up posting these cute little butterflies! They are recycled (made from magazines) so when you buy this beautiful set of 20 butterflies you're also helping the environment. And that's really what all Etsians do, right?
These beautiful beauties can be yours for the bargain price of only $2.50!

For a direct link to KiraAnnDesign's shop click on the link at the top left under 'My Fave Links'. That link will take you directly to her shop on Etsy.

Ok, I don't know if no one is interested in having thier Etsy mini at the top of my blog or no one reads my blog. I want to hear from all of you. Let me know what you think so I can make this a great blog that's enjoyable for everyone! I don't know what you think unless you leave a comment, so please leave your two cents!

One more question... would anyone want to win a free customized button for thier blog as a giveaway? I'm going to have a REALLY good giveaway in February. Just wait and see...(are you curious ;) ? )

New Gadgets~ What do you think?

Ok, I want everyone's thoughts on my newest gadgets. Do you LOVE them or LOVE to HATE them? I wanna know! So show me some love, leave a comment!

Your desired link will be posted at the top of my blog (for example, the Etsy mini, or like the quickrewards link at the top). No pornography or anything of that nature that isn't appropriate for children to see will not be accepted as an advertising link.

Everyone ready??

Okay, how much does website hosting (which includes website design) cost on our business website and how often?

No featured seller this week

I want to apologize to KiraAnnDesigns. She was supposed to be the featured seller this week on my blog. Unfortunately I was unable to post about her beautiful shop. This past week I've had a badly infected tooth. Part of it had recently fell off, and the left half side of my face is swollen.

I've been on antibiotics and oxycotton the past few days. I don't even know if I'm spelling words correctly, but I'm trying not to look too much into it as I still feel pretty dizzy.

Since I was unable to post KiraAnnDesigns shop this week I will start posting featured sellers again next week. My apologies KiraAnnDesigns.

Everyone have a wonderful weekend!

No comment posted.....

Well, since Angela didn't comment on my last post, I have no other alternative but to select another winner. The runner up for the free week of advertising for thier Etsy shop will be Jen @ Simply Inviting Cards! Congrats Jen! Please post a comment below with your Etsy shop link so I can convo you. I will check back tomorrow morning or early afternoon. If Jen has not posted, I will announce another winner.

And the winner is............

Yes, the contest is over! And the lucky winner of the free advertising for your own Etsy shop is............ at the end of this post! While you are madly scrolling to find out who the winner is please take a look at Riaann's Etsy shop. This is her last day being the featured seller, therefore, the last day to get your 20% discount! Don't forget, you'll need to use the code rjblueyes at checkout!

This beautiful and charming floral pendant is $10. I love it because it reminds me of spring. With your 20% off discount it's only $8!!

And don't forget to take a look at this beautiful multi layered card. It's $4, but not with your exclusive 20% discount! This would be great to give to someone whos under the weather, in the hospital, or just because you want to show your appreciation. You can give it to family or a friend.

If you haven't seen Riaann's shop, take a look! She has 20% off on everything but her Christmas items. That's only because the Christmas items are already marked down to 50% off! This is the last day to get your exclusive 20% discount from her shop, at least take a look around! You can find a direct link to her shop on the left top side of my blog under 'My Fave Links'. She'll have her link up for another week, but today is the last day to get that discount!

Well..... I will be having a contest for my followers. All you have to do is become a follower of my blog ( if you're not already) and you're automatically entered!

The winner will get a free week of advertising on my blog! As it stands you all have a 1/25 chance to win. So..... to double your chances tell your friends/family!

You'll get your Etsy mini right under my followers ( a $5 value!) so you're shop will be seen for sure!

Good luck everyone!

Cute, Cute, Cute!!!

This lovely door hanger is the perfect accent to any girls room. This is a newly added item in Riaann's shop. It is $7.00 (don't forget the 20% discount with the code: rjblueyes). I love it and think it's one of the most adorable things I've seen!

The Simple Wishes stamp set (below) are gently used stamps. They are $6.00 (not counting the discount). You would probably pay more than this at a crafting store for such high quality stamps. She also shows a picture of the bottom of the stamp. If you would like to see those pictures you can click on Riaann's link at the top left of my blog under 'My Fave Links.

I will now be selling advertising for your etsy shop on my blog. if you would like your etsy shop to show up on the sidebar (either side) you can do so by commenting on my blog. The first to comment will get advertising next week. It will be 4 rows, 1 column for $2. I will also sell advertising under the pics of my followers, this will be $5 a week.

The first to comment with 'I want to show off my etsy shop!' in a comment below with where on my blog they would like to advertise will get the spot. There will only be one advertiser a week.If you want your link up under 'My fave links' it will be .50 a week if you are not/ have not been a featured seller. You will only be able to purchase two weeks total at one time. Meaning you can only stay on the side for two weeks.

Payment for advertising will need to be processed by paypal only. payment MUST be recieved within 24 hours or advertising spot will be given away.

How cute!

Well, as you can tell by my title, I've found some really cute items in Riaann's shop. She has this beautiful card for only $4.00! That's not counting the 20% off my loyal blog readers get with the code: rjblueyes!

I also found this Valentine butterfly wall hanging. I'm a sucker for butterflies, so I have to post it. It's original price is $12.00, but not with a 20% discount!

Ok, I've also asked Riaann if the Christmas sale items were also included in the 20% off. She said no, but with an already deep discount of 50% off Christmas items, she's hardly making a profit as is. She has to pay Etsy with something. :D

I've also put a few items in my shop as well, but if you want to see them you'll have to go to my shop. I don't want to post any pics of my items while I have a featured shop. Just visit mine after you take a look at Riaann's shop.

Let us know what you think, what you like about the featured shop, and what you don't like about the featured shop. We want to know! Leave a comment.

Have a great day, and Happy shopping everyone!

New Featured Seller!~~Riaann~~

Please welcome Riaann! She will be our featured seller this week. Before I get into showing you her shop, I'd like to tell you a little bit about Riaann.

Riaann is a SAHM(stay at home mom) to two beautiful children. One boy and girl who are twins and are 3 1/2 years old.(WOW! I thought I was busy!) She's been married for 9 years! Congrats Riaann!

Riaann has been stamping and papercrafting for almost 10 years. After chasing twins around all day she enjoys creating new and fun projects to help her relax.

Riaann has been a member on Etsy since November 1st 2008, and currently has 42 items for sale in her shop. She has made 8 sales and has 100% feedback. She has so many beautiful items that I can't possibly list them all in a week, you'll have to take a look for yourself! There's a direct link to her shop at the top left of my blog under 'My Fave Links'.

Riaann is also offering a 20% discount to my loyal blog readers (that's you guys :D ) with the code: rjblueyes. Make sure you use this code at checkout to get your 20% off discount!

Now, take a look at these beautiful items!

I LOVE these fluttering butterflies in a shadowbox. They're beautiful! It's $20.00, but you'll get 20% off this week. That's only $16! Get it while you can!

My next favorite find in Riaann's shop is this butterfly plaque. It's quite an encouragement, and beautiful as well. It's $12.00, but only $9.60 with your 20% discount! What a deal!!

I almost forgot, she also has Christmas items on sale for 50% off! Let me ask her if you can use your 20% discount with the 50%. I'll let you know in my next post.

Don't forget, there's a direct link to her shop on Etsy from my blog! Please comment here what you found in her shop that you liked, if you bought an item, tell us what you bought. We want to know! Let us hear your voice, we want to know what you think. Leave a comment!

Happy shopping everyone!

Last post for Luvmymonkeys-Check out her shop!

Hello everyone! Can you believe how fast this New Year is going? WOW!! I hope you've noticed, I've got a new counter up, FINALLY! I recently found one I liked. Lol, it looks like an odometer. :D

This is luvmymonkeys last day, and her link will remain on the side of my blog for the next week only. I would like to keep links on the side, but it would make my link list WAY too long. Anyways, check out these cool items in luvmymonkeys shop!

I found this lip balm in her shop. It's an all natural chocolate mint lip balm made with beeswax, oils, and butters. This is perfect to pamper yourself even a little with these harsh winds and freezing temps. The first thing that popped into my mind when I saw this was "WOW! This is cheaper than burt's bees!" It comes in .5 tub for only $3.50!

I also found this coffee scrub for your skin. I found a recipe once in a magazine for it, and it really does make your skin look and feel amazing. The mess of making it on the other hand wasn't so great. Save yourself the hassle and the cleanup and get it from luvmymonkeys shop for only $3.50! That's WAY less than you would pay for an exfoiliating skin rub in any store!

This next VERY useful item is for anyone like me. Luvmymonkeys makes an ouchpouch. What's inside? Well, usually all the things you kids pretend boo boos fix. Bandaids. My kids play doctor, or fix thier boo boos and I don't have a bandaid for a paper cut or when I barely slice my finger with a knife cutting veggies. It also includes insect relief pads (great for the summer), and alcohol(not the drinking kind either, that's just wishful thinking! Just kidding...) But this is great. I've checked and she sells out of these pretty quickly. This will fit easily into your diaperbag or purse, probably even your car dash box. I have a very small dash box in my mini van, and not too much can fit in there. If you're like me, this is wonderful to have (my kids get hurt ALL the time). Only $5! What a steal!

And last but not least is this really cool laundry soap. I think she sells more of this than her pot holders! This is an all natural detergent that is very good for sensitive skin. Her daughter has psoriasis, so her skin can't handle all the extra gunk they put in detergent. You get thirty loads of laundry for $5 bucks. 30 loads for $5!!! No wonder this sells so fast! Where else could you get all natural detergent for $5 and get 30 loads out of it?

I hope you've enjoyed our featured seller this week. If you have, please leave a comment! Tell us what you liked from our featured sellers shop, and what you didn't like. We don't know what you think unless you tell us, so leave a comment! You will find a direct link to luvmymonkeys shop on the top left under 'My Fave Links'.

I will be posting our new featured seller soon, so stay tuned!

Check out this!

After spending a few days in bed I'm trying to get back into the swing of things. I never realized how much I would miss being online and talking to all my e-friends. :) I was browsing through luvmymonkeys shop and found these really cute items! Take a look for yourself.

This is Chamomile Herbal Bath Tea. I've been wanting to get some, but she's almost always sold out of them! If you want these you better grab 'em fast, 'cause at only $2.50 they're gonna be GONE!!!

I also found this photograph that reminds me of spring. I absolutely love it, and want to hang it on my wall just so it can remind me that spring is right around the corner. This fountain of youth photo can be yours for just $5!

Well, I'm gonna try to stay warm today and keep the kids busy. No school today :( Oh well, maybe I'll make them dust and be my cleaning helpers :) What are kids for, right? I'm just kidding, have a great day everyone!

New Featured Seller!~~~luvmymonkeys

Please welcome luvmymonkeys! She is a SAHM (stay at home mom) that loves to craft in her 'spare' time. Although she has a little bit of everything in her shop, she loves photography and crocheting the most.

Luvmymonkeys has had her shop on Etsy since November of 2008. She has had 133 sales, and has 100% POSITIVE feedback! Way to go luvmymonkeys!

She also let me in on a secret. She will be adding bath and body products to her shop soon. Such items will include all natural sun screen, etc. I think all natural sun screen is a great idea personally. You won't have to read a label in microscopic print to see what exactly you're putting on your child. I've got three kids, so it's like trying to find a needle in a haystack if they're allergic to something on one of those bottles. It definately doesn't help if you can't read what's in it either.

She also wanted me to let you know that she is offering free shipping on this item for the USA and Canada. Very beautiful work luvmymonkeys!

I also found this beautiful afghan in her shop. She's one crafty girl with a crochet hook!

Luvmymonkeys does ship internationally, however, you do need to contact her for a quote. You can find the direct link to her lovely shop on the above left under 'My fave links'. Happy shopping!
