Packages That Come in The Mail...and a DISCOUNT CODE

Lately our mail has not been the usual 
fare of bills and advertisements.
Well, they have been there too, but,
We have also been receiving little packages.
Fun stuff.

I am going to show you what was in one
of the packages.  

But first.....
Some in my "real life" 
(You know, as opposed to virtual life)
have asked what in the 
world is Etsy.
Etsy is an online location that hosts (for a fee)
artists and vintage sellers individual shops.
The good and the bad is that everyone has
a uniform look and rules.
Being creative as we are I am sure this
stifles all of us a bit sometimes but for 
the most part I am thrilled to use this site.
Not having to start from scratch on a website
is wonderful.
Been there. Done that.

Within Etsy you can join Teams.
I have joined a couple.
The most active has more that 2000
members and is the 
Cristian Artists Street Team. (CAST)
I'll often pop onto a conversational thread at
some point throughout the day and chat with 
other Etsy sellers who are working away.

CAST also has a Team Blog.
There a different seller is featured at least 
weekly.  I happened to win a beautiful 
jewelry set by Tricia.
CreationsbyTricia is her shop name.

I love this necklace.  
It is so me.
There is a weight to it that
pleases me.
I tend to "fiddle" with my jewelry
and this feels sturdy enough to survive
the abuse.
It is very well made.

Isn't it pretty?

I am pleased with the response to my 
Traditionally I close up the 
whole candle shebang over the Summer
so to have it up and running with sales
makes me a happy camper.

Making new friends 
in this venue has been fun too.

For the rest of this week you are 
invited to take 25% off your
total order from my shop.

Just use Code
 at checkout.
