Coming Soon!


Just a little glimse of items that will be uploaded whenever the sun decides to show his face. The past 3 weeks we have had overcast skies, they call it June Gloom, well it's put a damper on my picture taking. Hopefully, fingers cross, I can start taking pictures today.

Wow!

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart to everyone who bought this past weekend. It was a great sale and I will continue to have more deals often.

On another note, I could not contain myself and have to say that I just bought another papercut original from this wonderful artist. I cannot wait! So excited. This is my second purchase from her and here is the first one that I purchased previously. I just wish I could buy all 4 that she has listed in her shop. Her blog is so amazing, I just love reading her stories.

While I was away from my blog I was invited by Maria to participate in a giveaway over a month ago and did a little interview about myself and my inspirations. It is so weird to read about myself. Anyways, Maria is always doing giveaways so you might want to check them out. Oh and here is another cute blog that mentioned my items.

Props









Taking pictures is not as easy as I thought it would be especially when it comes to jewelry. I have taken photography classes through high school/college and always loved it but never followed through with it as a career and it just became a hobby. Anyways, trying to sell your work online is so difficult because the customer cannot touch or handle the product so you need to take the best possible picture you can even if it takes 20 million times to get the perfect shot. I always used paper as my background but it just wasn't working as I hated to lay the pictures down and the light would not reflect the beauty of the crystals in some of my earrings. So after many attempts and 2 years later I found the perfect solution, a tiny miniature coat hanger and a vanity. I could not believe what a difference props make and how cute they look too. Their is still a ton of pictures to re-take and I still need to figure out how to shoot my necklaces but for now I am content with my earring shots. Over and over they recommend to take the best possible pictures in order to become a successful seller because it does work. For now I will continue using my little coat hanger until I find the next best thing.

Rain in California??? + Descanso Gardens
















It so shocking at it never rains here and all of a sudden it's wet outside. How crazy is that?? For us Californians it's puzzling. We tend to make a deal over little drops of rain.
I wanted to share a little special place that I love and it's Descanso Gardens. It is the most ideal place to spend an afternoon strolling along the garden paths, smelling the aroma of spring gardens surrounding you all around. Unfortunately every 2 seconds I had to spend it yelling at the little one or telling the older one to stop bugging his brother. But they did enjoy themselves as well and were so happy being in the Lilac Garden surrounded by hundres of butterflies just fluttering about their merry way.

Happy Wednesday!!

By the way 15% off starting Friday in Le Shop.

Where Does Time Really Go????????


I finally remembered I have a blog which has been so neglected. How do 2 months go by so quickly. Anyways, I have been busy of sorts with some orders that have kept me up late at night plus kids, parties, schools, spring outings, gardens, interviews, giveaways, tutorials plus so much more. I have really enjoyed the spring and will try to post some of our events soon. I wanted to share a quick tutorial I created for Etsy in Spanish . They asked me so nicely to teach something so I created a hand corsage with scraps of silk and organza. I was so nervous as it was to be written in Spanish and English and my spanish writing is horrible but thank god their are sp/en translating dictionaries online. Here is a glimpse of the tutorial. It is so easy to do and looks amazing once it's done. Talking about amazing today in BazaarLatino history I was on the front page not once but twice. I could not believe my eyes. Thank you, Thank you......
I have been thinking that I have not done any kind of deals or specials in shop lately so I might have one this weekend. Please stay tune.
Off to bed as it is midnight and my hands hurt.
I won't neglect you too much my little blog.
