on a little shop update (and a tiny giveaway)...

A whole bunch of assorted gift tags.
I've been busting a crafty move over here as of late, so I thought I'd show you a few new items up in the shop as of this week! (And also prove that I spend way too much time on packaging, because it brings me a ridiculous amount of joy.)

Finally freshened up my photography for my favorite necklaces!
Well, these aren't necessarily new, but I redid the photography for my eisley necklaces, and I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. It was in need of refreshing, so it feels good to have finally made the effort. (It is also fairly obvious that I'm obsessed with the patterned cardstock I picked up a few weeks ago. I would probably wear a dress made out of the above paper. I wish I were kidding.)

I need to hire models next time because it takes me, like, a bajillion years to get decent photos of myself in these necklaces.
Note to self: Next time around, hire friends to model necklaces for you, so it doesn't take seventeen shots to get a photo of the darn thing in focus. (Do you hear me, SoCal friends? Let's do this thing.)

Lovely notebook sets.
I'm really excited about these new notebook sets. As I mentioned before, these paper patterns make me swoony, so I loved matching up the designs for each set. I'm trying to figure out how to give my customers more for their money (while still taking into account how much time I spend creating new items!), so I like the idea of offering two notebooks together. Each one is hand-stitched with thread and is filled with twenty blank pages ready to be filled.

I have also tucked a vintage French postcard in with each set. Because vintage postcards are adorable. And people should send more snail mail.

Lovely notebook sets. :)

These gift tags are also a new addition! I always love having pretty things around to dress up gifts, so I want to start offering more of these items in the shop. All you need is some basic brown paper, some bakers twine, and one of these pretty little tags. And perhaps a piece or two of washi tape. Your packaging will be the belle of the ball and your creativity will impress millions. (Or at least the recipient of the gift.) 

I guarantee it.

Would you like a set of these pretty little gift tags for yourself?

I have two sets up for grabs, and if you'll simply leave a comment on this post sometime this weekend (be sure to leave your email address if you don't have one attached to your commenting account), I'll choose two winners on Monday and send them each one set. How spontaneous am I right now? I KNOW. It's madness.

  33. Dear Kerri, I'm totally in love with your shop and creations. I totally agree with you on the card-stock pattern. I wish I could make a flowing skirt out of it. And wear it with a mustard top (tempting, eh?).

    I hope I'm not too late for the giveaway. :)
