That In-Between Holidays Time

It's that crazy time of the year again for us crafty people.

Halloween is still a few weeks away and both we (and the stores from the look of it) are also getting ready for the upcoming Christmas season.

Personally this is my favorite time of the year.

All year long I look forward to the time between Sept 1st & Dec. 31st. The rest of the year can just go away as far as I'm concerned. :)

As a crafter though, it takes on a whole new meaning.

We need to be prepared for our customers buying gifts for all sorts of upcoming occasions.

From Halloween, to Holiday parties...stocking stuffers and 'eight crazy nights'...New Years and just about everything else in between, we need to be more prepared for this time of the year than most other folks.

So while the rest of our neighbors might be carving pumpkins and setting out some inflatable lawn ghosties, we busy crafters will be getting in our recently ordered Christmas beads to get going on all sorts of new Holiday designs. (Ok, the beading could just be me, but still...)

In the meantime, feel free to check out my Halloween pieces! There's still time to order and FREE shipping (all year long) in the US!

Until next time....

Possible Front Page???

Sometimes treasuries just come together in all the right ways!
This is my new one (just went up tonight) and it features Fall leaves in all their spectacular glory.
The photography for these pieces is especially stunning and really helped me to pick out these items.
As usual, I started in the last pages of my search--rather than using the first few pages--I go right to the last ones.
Because these pieces were listed first and sometimes have been there for months--I want to shine a light on them.
I found talented people with exceptional pieces and the treasury to your left is the result.
I'm really hoping that this one makes the front page. If they are looking for great pics to put up there, these sellers got it goin' on!
To see this treasury in action (it's live until Thurs. the 15th):
Enjoy, thanks for looking and as always...
Until next time...

New, New, NEW!

I've been listing lots of new stuff today and will be adding even more over the next day or two.

Be on the lookout for the Fall/Halloween items as well as my Pink for a Cure section! 10% of all sales in the Pink for a Cure section will go to the Susan G. Komen foundation during the month of October.

Thanks for looking!!!

Until next time...

Just finished updating Facebook...

Just a quickie post to let you guys know that I've just updated my "New from TheGoblet" album on my Facebook Jewelry page. (see right hand column for preview and link)

This has lots of new pieces that I created that I was finally able to get photographed.

They will soon be listed on Etsy for sale, but I like to put a preview of them up on Facebook first.

Hope you like them and again, most will be up for sale within a day or so.

Thanks for looking!!!

Until next time...

October Breast Cancer Fundraiser

Hey all,

For the month of October, 10% of all sales of items in my "Pink for a Cure" section of my shop will go to the Susan G. Komen foundation for breast cancer.

As someone who has had family and friends touched by this illness, I wanted to help in a different way than just my normal direct contribution to the foundation.

And while I applaud the pink ribbon campaign and all it's done for the is good for more than just ribbons!

So please, come and see my Pink for a Cure items. Pick up a gift for a friend or for yourself and do something good in the process!!!

PS. Be sure to check out my new Fall/Halloween section too! :)

Until next time...
