Featured on Etsy Daily Email

Yippy my store was featured in Etsy Daily Finds Email and selected by none other than Jennifer Perkins of Naughty Secretarys Club. It was already awhile ago, yes I know I am always behind isn't that the truth lately.
I have to say I have been looking up to Jennifer for awhile now, she is such a hoot and such a succesful small business owner that it was an honor to be in this particular Etsy Finds.

Anyways hope everyone is having a nice Fall and getting ready for that Spooky holiday that is coming up!
I couldn't figure out how to add the email so I snuck a snippet in below.



"I've often wondered how Jennifer Perkins does it: original Austin Craft Mafia member, Naughty Secretary Club founder, DIY's Craft Lab host, and now, jewelry book author — she's been making her awesomely over-the-top, charm-encrusted designs since before cupcakes were kitsch. Well wonder no more, (at least for the jewelry) she's ready to spill her secret sources for some of the coolest baubles around. (I'll give you a hint: Etsy.)
...Ooh, and if you missed Friday's how-to with Jennifer, get your free Hanky Panky bracelet project download here.(Sorry I couldn't find the link but it is in her new book)
You would think that as a jewelry designer there would be a lot of beads in my world. (Ya, you would think.) Actually, I can't remember the last time I included a bead in my jewelry. That being the case, I am on the constant lookout for the perfect kitschy cutie that can be transformed into a piece of jewelry. Sometimes that is a piece of dollhouse furniture, other times it is a cupcake topper. When I was writing my new book, The Naughty Secretary Club: The Working Girls Guide to Handmade Jewelry, I knew I had to have the perfect supplies for wearable office-themed awesomeness and Etsy was the perfect place for me to start my search. I picked a few favorites that are used in 10 of the 50 fun projects you can find inside the book. Remember, there is nothing that says a jewelry designer is restricted to just beads. I live by the mantra that if it will sit still long enough, I will eventually find a way to make it into a piece of jewelry."
