Venting on Copy Cats

So it seems once a week I am getting a convo from another etsy seller telling me that 1 in particular shop is totally copying my Carrie Necklace. It frustrates me to no end. She also changes her shop and shop adress a lot....hmmm. Now she has renamed her Copied version of my Carrie necklace. Weird. Oh well.......I know that I am the original creator of this necklace and I am PROUD of my design! I have also stated so in my listings. Not sure what else to do. Okay, enough venting :) Back later for a more "positive" post

In the spirit!

Okay, I am now in the Christmas spirit! So much in fact, that I went shopping on black Friday (um online) and finished my "clothes shopping" for all 3 kids. There were just as awesome deals online as in stores! I got 40% off my entire purchase at Justice, and 40% off my entire purchase at the childrens Place with free shipping, and free shipping from journey kids. NOW I just need to let Santa do the toy shopping :) So, I put my tree up and man do I love my tree! Its got pearl strands and is all pink and cream! SOOOO ME!!! So here is a pic of my tree and of me and my babes on THanksgiving! Hope you are all in the spirit! What are some of your traditions?

Bridal Couture

I would like to share one of my best selling items, The Carrie Necklace in Robins Egg Blue. I get a TON of custom wedding orders for all of my carrie necklaces but this one tops the cake by FAR! It is so elegant and so chic, and could be your something blue for your special day! Here is the necklace itself......

Now, for the fun part! What would I pair this fab necklace with? Of course something from one of my favorite Etsy shops, Claire La Faye! Her pieces are so much fun and sooo girly! Just what I love! I actually own a couple of tops from her shop and just LOVE them! So here is what I would wear my Carrie Necklace with!

Good for the soul

So the time has come for me to work on my soul. For me I need to start with my home. So in order for me to feel good about ME I need to surround myself with things I love! So with that I am starting with re-doing my home to suit me. Things I love, colors I love, and decor I love! I am starting with decorating my living room. I will re-painting....going from dark colors to light airy, shabby chic colors. I am paiting my walls a light tan and will be decorating with some of my favorite finds on etsy! Here are a few things I will be using to spruse up my nest! What do you think??
