I met such a nice person through Etsy the other day. I put a custom order bid in on a request she had up and she picked me. While creating her order, I fell in love with it! We talked a little more and after readig her profile I wanted to share her talents with you! Her name is Johanna and is her store. Who doesn't send praises for that! The pictures is of the custom order I completed for her!
She has tons a goodies and a direct quote from her profile, "I will be using most of the money I make on etsy sales to donate to various charities such as Wish Upon A Hero. I will be donating it through money donations or using it to get items that people request. If you are not familiar with Wish Upon A Hero everyone has the ability to make a wish and everyone has the ability to grant a wish. I like the site because I really enjoy that I can help someone in need for a small bit of time, money or effort on my part. I encourage anyone with a caring nature to check it out. Thank you for checking out my shop. Please ask if there is anything you would like custom made."

NOW FOR THE GIVEAWAY! I am giving away a gift from Johanna's shop! To enter, you need to visit her Etsy store and look around, finding two things you like about it, her, etc. and come back here and leave me a comment with your opinion. A winner will be picked from the comments on Thursday the 19th. SO, you have ONE week to discover her store! Good luck! (Be sure to leave your email address so I can easily get ahold of the winner!)

Fee calculator!

I found a great link today for all of you with Etsy shops. It's a fee calculator. You basically enter in the price you want to clear after Etsy and PayPal fees. It figures it all for you and shows you what your price needs to be to "bring home" what you want. It's a really neat tool and saves a ton of time figuring prices! Check it out and pass it on to your Etsy friends!

Valentine Crayons!

Looking for a great and inexpensive craft for Valentine's Day??? Well, Matthew and I made one the other day, and so far, it's a big hit! Simply take all your broken pieces of crayons you have laying around and plac ethem into silicon molds. I bought a 2 pack at Target for $2.50. Then place in the oven at 250 degress until they all melt. When they come out, let them cool and they pop right out! We placed them in cute bags, attached a tag and WAH-LAH instant and inexpensive Valenttine's gifts for all his friends. I have to admit that I have been enjoying them too :)
