Black Friday and Holiday Weekend Sale!!

!!!!!!BLACK FRIDAY!!!!!!
Dun dun dun!!
It's the much anticipated black Friday! And what better time to have a crazy shopping day than right after we have had delicious meals with wonderful people! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving and headed out this morning with your bellies fully stuffed from the night before. I personally am not the kind that gets up before the sun to fight the mobs of people. I remain cozy in my bed until about noon.
I am, however, taking part in the black Friday excitement by having a sale in my shop! I'm one CRAZY kid I know! :-P Everything is 20% off. The sale is on all weekend long, from Friday to Monday. Come stop by and take a look!

New Product Pic Style

So as some of you may know, my product pics are usually taken on the text of a book and the jewelry will be draped over another old book. I like how it looks. I think it lends to the romantic feel that I'm going for.
However, I've been wondering if maybe that style of product photos wasn't professional enough. So I thought that I would try and give the blank background without any text a go. Here's how they turned out. As you can see, for some of them I still opted to use the old book for a prop.

All of these pics still need to be cropped and edited a bit. The ones with the white background I need to edit so that the white is more crisp and well.. white. I think I got the hang of my other style of photos and made them look pretty decent, but this I will definitely have to work on. I think you have to be more picky with the lighting with this 'clean' style. That's definitely something I'll have to work on if I continue with this.

So what do you guys think? Do you like this stlye better or my old romantic style better? I'm always open for some good ole constructive criticism!

Friday the 13th Sale!! 20% Off! Store-wide!

That's right! I decided JUST NOW to have a Friday the 13th sale in my shop. For some this is a day full of superstitions but for me, it's pure fun! Kind of like Halloween! So I've decided to celebrate by having a store-wide 20% off sale! All items! Just type 'The13th' in the message to seller box when you checkout and I'll refund the amount through paypal. OR you can convo me first and I'll make a special listing with the revised price just for you. Hurry! This sale is only on until midnight tonight!

A Treasury About Love

Woo hoo! I figured that for the heck of it I would check craftopolis to see if I was in a treasury, and sure enough I am! It's titled "Key to my Heart" and was made by ChapterFour. It has my Red Coral Love Necklace in it. I have to honestly say that I really like this treasury. I'm all about loving one another, keeping your heart open to the world and being kind to one another and this treasury really speaks to me in that sense. Even better, when I looked at chapterfour's shop, I was in awe. It's a shop that sells prints and all of them speak of love. There's either hearts or flowers or rainbow colors, and they are all so simple. Beautiful work. I highly recommend going to Tania's shop, even if to just put a smile on your face. I know it did mine. :)

Facebook and New Items

Hey guys! I haven't been on here in a week and I feel like I've mistreated all of you! After this post I'm going to spend the next hour catching up with you all. So I finally made a facebook fan page! Yay! I took the plunge! Click here to check it out. I made it yesterday and I already have 10 fans. Woo hoo!! If you fan me and then leave a comment with a link to your fan page I'll fan you back. I'd love to have some of my blogger buddies on there! Anyhoo, I was excited to use the facebook connect feature on Etsy but didn't realize that it would post on my personal page instead of my fan page, so I was kind of bummed about that. I guess I'll have to use the ole 'comment and leave a link' feature to update it. Also, up above are some new items I've posted in my shop. I finally purchased some lava beads and I've been having fun working with them. I love how rough and organic they are. I paired them with some pearls and the outcome was absolutely stunning! I will definitely be working with them some more.
