a little winter faerie coming your way

Hiya peeps!

My life has been filled with Halloween and anniversary celebrations (and vet appointments for our Xander kitty who is now doing fine -yay!).
I have managed to fit in plenty of making time as well and many new listings are up in my shop including some items in my winter faerie collection, with more on the way there - hoping to take photos this weekend.

Hope your Samhain celebrations were delightfully spooky and fun!

p.s. apparently photos don't want to load from my device right now, so I will post some when I am able to get to my desktop.

p.p.s pictures now available (in case you couldn't tell). And yes, I know I could have simply removed the bit about how the photos weren't here before, but that's not how I roll.  Stop trying to change how my brain works people! ;)

life beyond the sea

Finally took a small break from mermaid themed items.

Ok, so that's a lie, I did list a few more of those too, but I did have fun with some chandelier earrings (which I actually love making) and a new hair clip complete with a little bird in a nest.  A few other odds and ends have shown up in my shop as well.

Here's a tiny peak:

entangled in a net

I finally listed several of the fishnet, mermaid inspired accessories I have been creating, in my Etsy shop.  I have had them done for a while, but I was hoping to take some more editorial style photos outside to use.  Alas, spring has decided to come in quite slowly here and I got tired of waiting for warm enough weather and for nature to provide a more luscious backdrop.

Sooooo, back to my indoor set up for now.  Hopefully I will be able to get some editorial shots soon. I did post several non mermaid items as well (ok, so and I added more non-fishnet items to my mermaid collection too - I may have a bit of a mermaid addiction - are there support groups for that?)

the name game

I am thankful for the time we spent together, but I am pretty vacant girl no more.

After toying with the idea of a name change for a couple years, only to quickly give up when what I wanted wasn't available, I decided it was time to dive in and just go for it.  And by dive in, I mean stress myself out and drive everyone around me so nuts that I have very few friends left to text as I have been blocked by what I am sure is some mysterious phone virus.

Now I am alone and suffering from some version of buyers remorse.  Since putting all the name changes for my shop in place, I am questioning everything and staring longingly at my old name and logos.  However, for better or for worse, I am following The Curious Nixie and seeing where this fresh creature leads.

Everything should be a fairly smooth transition.  I was able to simply change my name on all sites so anyone following should be re-directed.  Only Facebook is requiring a transition time, but if all goes as planned it should be flipped over early next week and I will get it linked back in to this site.

Until next time, here are a couple of recent items in my Etsy shop:
