It's my Etsyversary!

I can't believe it's been a year, but when looking at my public profile I know it's true: I've been selling on Etsy for a year today! Woohooo!

And what a year it's been!

What started out as a silly idea of selling my hand painted pebbles turned into a nice little business, and there's lots more room to grow. I've learned so much about my craft, I've expanded the type of products in my shop, I've learned more about marketing and promoting, I've started this blog and kept an eye on other Etsy related blogs, I've met some wonderful people on Etsy, got addicted to the forums, got more creatively inspired than I've been in years, got custom orders which I love and best of all: my items have found new homes and made people smile.

To celebrate my Etsyversary I offer a 10% discount to anyone who convo's me the word 'Etsyversary' or who puts that into the note to seller, and all the buyers in the UK will get FREE SHIPPING! Whoohooo!

(This sale will go on until 7 pm Etsy time, which is midnight UK time.)

Sold already!

No sooner did I list these hand painted beads or BeadRee, the one I made these for, bought them. She will use them for her Story Necklaces, which according to her can be found in Native America culture, gypsy culture and appear in many other cultures as well. Storytellers would finger the beads showing how the story progressed, bead by bead, instead of "page by page".

I can't wait to see them used, my first Etsy collaboration! ;)

What to do with eggcups if you don't eat eggs?

So you like my eggcups, but you don't eat eggs. Or you prefer yours scrambled. Or pooched. Or sunny-side-up. Or... Well, anyway, you have no use for eggcups in the traditional way.

What else could you use them for?

* They make great candle holders. I know there are people here on Etsy who sell egg shaped candles (The Keepers House http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5004735 and Dbpeewee http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=5215901 to name two) that will look great in my eggcups!

* Plant some tiny (fake if you prefer it) plants in them. This way you can have a little green in any room you can think of, even the bathroom.

* They make very good paper clip, push pin and elastic bands holders. Or any other tiny office supplies you can think of. They will brighten up your boring office space in no time!

* Let me make you some custom egg cups with the initials and favourite colours of your family and you can use them to show where everyone is sitting. No eggs needed, either as they can be purely decorative.

* Kids love them. They can play with two eggcups and some marbles for hours! Or use them as mugs for their dolls.

* Use them for your secret indulgent snacks. One eggcup of peanuts, banana chips or rainbow drops will make you feel less guilty for eating them. But since eggcups usually come in pairs, two will not do you any harm either....

* Use them for decoration. Start or continue a collection. In fact: collect all my eggcups and make me very happy!

Here are the eggcups I currently have in my shop, but please remember that I love custom orders and it would be my pleasure to make you a cup (or two, or twelve, or however many you'd like) in your favourite colour or theme.


Also check out my sold eggcups to get an idea of what I could do for you:
