Need Business Cards!

I'm attempting a new tactic when shipping my Etsy orders; Promo Packets! Each order I ship to my customers will include a lil' packet of other Etsian's business cards to help promote handmade items.

Please e-mail me if you're interested in sharing your biz cards, stickers, or anything creative!

Custom Coasters

I recently made a trade with Martha from OpenDoorStudio .  I received some lovely vintage thermos used for vases:

In exchange for these wonderful thermos, I created Martha some custom coasters.  Because she is an artist herself, the coasters were made from pictures of her artwork.

Check out Martha's artwork here.
You can also check out Martha's awesome vintage items here.

Lastly, If you're interested in a custom coaster set such as these, please don't hesitate to send me a convo!

Mother's Day!

Buying for Mother's Day
Chrystal Lynn Simmons
I know what you're thinking.  There isn't much cash going around right now to just splurge on mom for Mother's Day this year.  But, I want to propose an idea.  Just hear me out.

Resist buying the $20 box of See's Candy.  Forgo the all purpose (you already got her one for Christmas and her birthday!) spa pedicure.  Snub the brunch and mimosas at her favorite eatery.  Instead, let your creativity and innovation shine through and team up with someone else in the family.

For instance, recruit your sister and score $40 handmade something from a local designer.  Or, grab dad too and invest in a luxurious $60 piece of custom jewelry that she'll know was created just for her.

Now that you've got your accomplice and a generous budget, go to and make that mom of yours proud!
