Shop Feature: Caffeinated Papercuts Gift Pack Giveaway

Purple and Brown Floral Handmade Tile Coasters, Set of 4, Nature, Flower, Green, Red, Rose

This week's shop feature is Caffeinated Papercuts. I love this little shop as I find that Jennifer  is creative with what she has going on in her store. I love the fact that she makes all sorts of things ranging from greeting cards, ornaments, coasters, gift tags ad even gift bags! Just love all the variety that she has going on there. I am a big fan of coasters and I love her elegance in the coaster designs.

1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?
Would you believe it actually took me about two weeks to think of something? I wanted something fun, functional, yet still gave a hint as to what I sold. Originally I wanted to call my shop Caffeinated Stationery, but it turns out that Etsy has a character limit and the name was too long! It was my husband who suggested the switch to Caffeinated Papercuts; after all, I drink lots of coffee and cut paper. Usually at the same time.

My First Laser Color Printer

 I am so excited about receiving a brand new laser printer. In fact I never  owned one before. I have always  used a inkjet for so many years that I finally invested in a laser printer because of the fact that I realized that it was no longer cost effective to keep printing at Kinkos. That is why my  labels looks wonderful but at the same time I also thought to myself wow, the time I have go drive up there to print was crazy. Sometimes it was  a drag to get up there  to make a few copies. Usually the reason why new products take longer to come out is because I need a run up to Kinkos to get these labels done right!

Shop Feature: Jets Conceptions

This week's shop feature is Jet's Conceptions. It's a jewelry store that specializes in  glass and metal beads. It seems she blesses the each  jewelry  that she makes for store which is really unique. So each piece of jewelry that you receive from her shop should be full of  positivity.  Here is a bit more on  her shop and her work  :)

1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop? 

I wanted it to be personal and let people to know a little about me right off the bat. So I took my name and added that it's my creations and abstract ideas for jewelry. A person's name is a very powerful and personal thing to know 

2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique? 
I use many different mediums in my jewelry. Stones, feathers, bones, anything I can get my hands on. I'm always on the lookout for new things to use. I don't limit myself to one style or medium because what's the fun in that? The world is a very diverse place and I like to think that I could create something for everyone and that's why almost everything that I make is customizable. From religious to macabre, I like to do it all.

1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?

Kimberly and I wanted a sensible but down to earth name. We both believe in using what nature has given us. We jotted down some names, but "Nature's All" just kept poking out at us.

Arthritis Ease Tea 

2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?

We make medicines out of herbs. Although we make medicine to help take away the symptoms of an illness, we also make medicine and work with a person to help heal them of the illness. We also have clients that we try out our medicine on before we put it up for sale. A lot of times we try it on ourselves first. We make capsules, teas, tinctures, lotions,butters, soaps, and shampoo. We do this all with good intention. We believe in the vibrations of feelings and emotion, so if one of us is sick or having a bad day, that person won't touch the medicine. Sound weird? Ya, I know, it kind of does. But that is us. We run our business by spirit.

Mini All American Candles Giveaway

This month I have decided to give away a pair of All American Candles. It's my only 3 layer candle right now. The colors of this candle are red, white and blue and since we just had Independence Day I figure I theme this up. The purpose of this candle is to help you feel more positive with your relationship or friendships. If you have been having a rough time with your partner or a close friend with heated arguments or disagreements, this candle should help bring back things into alignment. In other words when lighting this candle both partners will heal from what is hurting them the most which is the white part, as they heal from some of their deeper issues within themselves, they both will be able to find their own inner peace( blue wax). Once they are calmer, they the loving energy can begin to open up again and both partners can connect on a more positive level communicating and being more loving in the most positive way ( red wax) . These may be mini but they are strong ad pack quite a punch. You will receive a romance oil to work your magic anyway you see fit. :)

Give away is for US residents only. Please be sure you fill out all your info for the giveaway, your info is private and confidential as I do not spam or give out your details no anyone. I just want everyone to be aware of it as I do check all details to make sure the requirements are completely before contacting the winner. Please also remember as a winner you only have 24 hours to claim your prize, failure to so will automatically result me picking another winner for the giveaway. Best of luck to everyone and have fun!

Porno Graffitti Rocks At Anime Expo

It's that time of year again for me to head down to the Anime Expo convention.  Anime  is my biggest  hobby and I absolutely enjoy watching anime. I am pretty much an anime freak as I  collect all sorts of things!  This year Porno Graffitti a Japanese Rock band came to visit. It's their first time in the US so it made it more exciting as they never been outside of the country to perform live  with their songs.  To be honest, I am not a huge fan of theirs. I just wanted  wanted to hear a few of  favorite songs that have landed in famous anime I have seen such as from Bleach, Full metal Alchemist (FMA),  GTO, and Magi.

Shop Feature: So Pretty In Paint

This week's shop feature is So Pretty In Paint by Stacey Hann.  I love her signs, especially the baby sign she made. It makes me smile.  If you like to collector of signs or  find that signs and phrases are useful then you may find something that you like at her shop.  Read more about her and her work below.

1. How did you come up with the Name of your Shop?
When I first started making creations I was making them for myself and my house. As I'd look at the finished piece, I'd think "this just look so much prettier in paint."

2. Tell us a little bit about your shop and what you think makes it unique?
Most of my creations started off as an idea that someone brought to me. I love making custom pieces. I do not have enough space in my house to make all of the ideas I come up with, so I have to wait until someone asks for something and then I can create it. A lot of times I will work with clients, through numerous versions, to come up with a piece that is just perfect for them. I think being able to work with clients is unique. I do not want to make cookie cutter items, I want them to be special and unique. I will work with clients through the editing process for free because I want their item to be perfect!

3. What is your favorite item at the store and why?My favorite item is the Life is short, drink great wine sign! Why? Because I love wine! My husband and I do a lot of wine tasting, got engaged and then married at a vineyard. So I guess wine has a soft spot in my heart :)

Using Magical Spell Powders and Herb Incenses

If you have come  across my store lately,  you might have come across  incense  powders or  herb incenses.   I have been having fun  in  being really creative  with the  incenses and as I work  with them I actually love how it enhances my spell work with my candles. Spell  powders or herb incenses  give off a nice vibrational  energy in the air.   Normally, I   light my spell candle then I will take some charcoal put in a  cauldron then  add the incense on to the  charcoal.  Once I have both the incense and candle  burning that is when I usually say my prayers in what I want to manifest. this has actually worked  effectively very well.  The combination  has worked wonders for me and I have found that it has really given me  even more better results.  This is also how I have come up with the concept of  spell kits for my shop which I am excited to share with you soon as they slowly start coming to my store.
