This beach is where I spent my childhood summer days day dreaming and soaking up rays. The beach is so relaxing and the shells are so beautiful. I source many of my shells for jewelry from the Connecticut coast.
Are you a mad crafter like me? I love to creating my beautiful accessories. I’ve found a way to splurge on supplies without breaking my business budget. I bet you’d like to know a secret to saving big on supplies. I just signed up with a rebate app called Ibotta. You get cash back when you shop at stores and online. You can “cash out” your rewards in a variety of ways, and one way is a gift card to Jo-Ann Fabrics and Crafts. The best part of the program is the $10 bonus when you sign up and the $5 you get each time a friend signs up. Use my referral code bmcnagq and we both win.
This is how I gift wrapped a door prize for a local fundraiser. Paper crafting is a fun way to dress up a gift box. Customizing packaging is as fun as creating the item that goes into it. It is also a nice touch to add a personal note. Let me know if I can customize something for you. It’s wedding season soon… and don’t you dare forget Mother’s Day. I will soon be updating my ETSY shop to include more information on custom gift wrap.
It’s been a long while since my last post but…no excuse!. I’m just feeling lazy and insecure about my jewelry making adventure. I have been creating some pretty awesome pieces and it’s time to ramp up again and set some goals. I will work on a creating a new pieces more often to share with you.
A little bit about my process- I love the orange glow and medicinal properties of copper. It is my favorite metal. Let me know in the comments your favorite metal.
