Meandering Mondays: Getting Out of Town

Good Monday Morning,
Hope that you all are well and are having a great start to your week so far. I would like to first say that I am just blown away by the response that we have had for the most recent giveaway. So far there have been 128 individual comments/entries left. I really appreciate everyone's interest and I know that Janae is very excited to see such a level of participation. I also know that she really appreciates everyone's feedback on their favorite items in her shop. That information can be so useful to a shop owner and I thank each and every one of you for really taking the time to browse through her shop and leave your comments. Please remember that the giveaway doesn't end until Oct. 22nd so if you are still eligible for a few more entries get them in there. Also, if you know someone who might be interested in joining the giveaway please forward them the blog address. Good luck to each of the participants.

I would also like to encourage each of you to please take a look at the featured artists interviews that I have posted on Fridays. I think that you will meet some really great shop owners and maybe find some awesome items at the same time. You can quickly access all of the featured artist interviews as well as blog giveaways and tutorials easily by clicking on their respective titles in the top left hand sidebar.

I have some good news. Any of you with pre-teens and Disney Channel should totally get the reference to the left. ;) A friend of the family owns her own small coffee shop and she has asked if she can display some of my jewelry for a while. She has been a customer in the past and she said that she gets so many comments about the ring that she purchased from me that she finally has started telling everyone that she is going to try to get my items into her shop for sale before the holidays. So I agreed and I delivered the pieces to them today. It sort of put a real dent in my etsy shop inventory but I figure it is a good opportunity and jewelry always sells better in person so I really couldn't pass it up. So please keep your fingers crossed that maybe I will get some sells or custom orders. That would really help out around here right at the holidays.

Some other quick shop news. I am going to be out of town all of this week so any purchases made this week will not be shipped until the 19th-21st if it is a ready to ship item or on or after the 23rd for made to order items. Plans to go out of town were just finalized sort of last minute so I am frantically trying to get things in order so I can leave without having to worry too much about the shop. If you try to contact me for any reason please be aware that I will have very limited access to the net if any at all so I may not get back to you until next Saturday. I am trying to go ahead and get this weeks blog posts finished and scheduled to post on their usual days so that there won't be a big lull. So I guess that is all for now. Have a great week. Catch ya on the flip side.
