Each week I participate in a fun link up for handmade makers on Daft Crafts. It’s a great way to get your products seen and discover new handmade shops. One of your 3 products can be displayed prominently at the top of the next weeks link up post by being a staff pick or most viewed. All you have to do to participate is share 3 other linked up products via social media and hash tag it #happyhandmade.
I wanted to share my picks here this week and urge you to link up if you have a handmade shop!
This month has flown by! Halloween is so fun! To thank everyone for all your support with my sticker club project, not only am I giving away this month’s sticker pack, but a pair of my kawaii candy corn earrings!
I’ve tried to make it where international buyers can get stickers without paying a million dollars in shipping by using global stamps. If you order over a certain weight though it will be normal shipping to your country.
What are you going to be for Halloween? Do you make your costumes or buy them?
I wanted to thank everyone who has joined my sticker club over the past 6 months! I have enjoyed the challenge of creating themed sticker packs each month and seeing all of your wonderful creations.
I just wanted to give everyone a heads up that I will be taking a hiatus from sticker club in May 2015. I want to revamp how I make the stickers and also get the work done further in advance. I am also considering doing vinyl stickers instead of my usual paper stickers, but I would love your feedback on that!
I would love your feedback on the sticker club if you’ve been a member, or even if you haven’t had a chance to sign up yet. What did you like, not like, want to see more of? Did you guys like the monthly giveaway?
The sticker club makes a great gift, and I’m working on a cute card to send out recipients. xo
I love seeing all of your happy mail photos, how you use your SG products, and just happy customers in general. It’s been a while since I’ve done one of these posts, but use #scrawnygirlshop on social media so I can see your pictures! Xo
Thank you all for your continued support! I appreciate every single one of you and your cute happy faces! Xo
I love a good wishlist as much as the next girl. I thought it would be fun to share a few things I’m wishing for this month.
1. The Burlap Bag Pumpkin Addict candle. It was a hard choice between the pumpkin and the crazy cat lady candle. I can’t wait to check them out next time I’m in Austin, but for now I’ll just have to order online.
Sailor Moon was the very first anime I ever watched and I was obsessed! Let’s be honest, I’m still obsessed. I used to print off any pictures I could find and keep them in a folder so I could try and draw them. I read tons of fanfiction. I wanted to be Sailor Moon when I grew up…
Toonami was what I would rush home for after school so I could watch Gundam Wing! I own it all on DVD and made my husband watch it all when we first started dating. I don’t think I could date (or marry) a guy who didn’t like Gundam Wing. Heero Yui is my favorite…ok maybe Duo Maxwell ( I did name one of my dogs after him).
Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney movie, and has been since it was first released. I had my whole bedroom done with Belle’s face on it. I liked to read when I was younger, so I could relate to her. Also, she lived in an enchanted castle….I lived in a haunted house…
I remember throwing the hugest fits in high school when my step dad would change the channel when I was watching Buffy. It was kind of a big deal. I love it and all my friends do too. We went to Austin several years ago when they had the Buffy Musical sing along all nighter at the Alamo Draft House. It was so much fun! The musical soundtrack gets me through long drives, and Spike will always be my favorite.
Most of you probably have no idea what this picture is about, but I thought it was funny. I’m a huge Stargate fan…I love the movie, the TV series, the spin offs…all of them! I heard they are doing an awesome trilogy in the future and I really hope that happens. This is one I got my husband hooked on. It’s probably time to rewatch it. I’m such a dork for archeologists, funny guys, and smart chicks….oh and aliens.
In an effort to promote handmade, I started featuring some of my favorite handmade shops. Please check out these amazing shops and support handmade!
I’ve been following Melanie of Femme De Bloom on Instagram for a while now. I love her kawaii jewelry and she wears the cutest outfits! Every piece of jewelry in her shop is handmade with love and reflects her personal style and interests. She has the loveliest collection of Disney inspired jewelry!
I recently had the pleasure of working with Melanie on a custom project for Scrawny Girl! She was such a doll to work with! The best part is she can make you one pair or earrings (or other accessory) or several!
Melanie says,”My goal for FemmeDeBloom is to brighten others lives with accessories that are meaningful, feminine, and affordable!” I think she is doing a great job! I know her products make me smile, and I’m sure they will make you or someone you love smile too! It’s a great time to be thinking of gifts and this is the perfect shop to grab cute jewelry and accessories!
