Hello Capricorns

This month we are featuring the colors of Capricorn, an earth sign, from Dec. 22- Jan 19

Capricorn has many sides, takes an interest in everything, is mysterious and deep, very strong.  As you would expect from Saturn, ruler of Capricorn, its colors represent power that consolidates and sets boundaries.  Just as Capricorn is associated with limitations, so, too, do black, dark grey, and brown denote enclosing.   Choose carefully these hues.  Think of neutral and earthy shades, black, gray, violet, dark brown.

You can find the jewelry associated with the sign of Capricorn in my jewelry shop at www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu.  That takes you to the site where the listings are.  Or, to see just your color in jewelry, you can click on “Sections” on the left and then choose the Astrological listings.  All my jewelry is handmade, original, and with free shipping in the US.  Come take a look. Capricorn has many sides, takes an interest in everything, is mysterious and deep, very strong.

Is your sign Sagittarious?

Are you a Sagittarian?  I have something just for you.

I read the Astrology section in my newspaper every morning so that I can see what sort of day is in store for me.  My youngest daughter has the same sign so sometimes the advice that is there applies to her more than to me.  We are both Libras, in case you might wonder.

I don’t really believe in the predictions, they hardly ever come about, but it makes for interesting reading.  So, it occurred to me that other people not only read the predictions, but base their lives around them, especially when thinking about the person they would like to marry.  That one must be born under the right sign to be in harmony with their own.   I’m sure these people also make decisions on other actions with their astrological forces in mind.

With that as an incentive I have arranged the jewelry items I have for sale on Etsy to correspond to the Astrological aspects of each sign regarding the colors that should appeal to them.  I began with Sagittarius because it is the sign of this time period.

I found that Sags like stained glass colors such as lilac, mauve, purple, amethyst, violet, indigo, vermillion and midnight blue.  I just happen to have some jewelry in all of those colors.  So I opened a new Section, Astrology, on my Etsy shop site. The jewelry is listed there in “Sections” on the left side of the home page.  They are also listed on the main pages of my Etsy shop. There are currently 15 items pictured in the Section as well as on Pinterest.  I opened a new board there.

Next month I will do a page for Capricorn.  I’ve got their colors, too.

You can reach my jewelry site at etsy.com/shop/mizmlu.  Take a look.  You don’t have to be a Sagittarian.

Cute as a button colorful crocheted hat for the young at heart. You can change the flowers on the hat to have a different hat every day! Vibrant multi colored flowers about 2-1/2” in diameter are easily attached to the hat with buttons on the back that pass through spaces between the crocheted stitches. Depending on the number of flowers you want on your hat you have a choice of flowers to attach according to your mood, the outfit you are wearing, your sports team, your favorite colors, or whatever suits your fancy. Changing flower colors is quick and easy and the flowers are secure.

Two white hats and two black hats are now available.

To purchase your hat choose one in either white or black . Then select, at no extra charge, up to 4 flowers from the picture on the Etsy listing showing the available colors in alphabetical order.

Sell those vintage items

Do you have any of those old vintage items hanging around your house just taking up valuable space? Have you considered selling them? Did you try Ebay unsuccessfully? I did. Then I found Etsy. Etsy is a world wide marketplace for new handmade pieces and Vintage jewelry, household items, and many other treasures. You can get cash for these items through Etsy. It’s easy to open a shop, post pictures of your pieces, set a price and Voila! You’re an Etsy shop owner. And you’ve cleared out your home so that you can buy more.

There is a new 51 page book created by 2 Etsy shop owners telling you exactly how to do just that. It’s called, “Be an Etsy Store Owner” and it’s available now on Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00CRB6NUQ for only $9.99.

This amazing document takes you through each step of creating your very own shop with detailed instructions and explanations. No other publication is as complete as this one.
It costs nothing to open a new shop and only pennies to list an item for sale. Your item is on sale for 4 months and if it doesn’t sell you can renew it for another $.20 and 4 more months.

Try it. You might be surprised at the results.

New Baby Booties on Etsy

 

Pink and Blue Bootie

Here’s just one of the 5 baby booties I have listed on my Etsy shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/mizmlu.  This one is suitable for either a boy baby or a girl baby as it’s made from 100% acrylic yarn in mixed colors of pink and blue with white accents.    It would be a perfect baby shower gift when the parents won’t know the sex of their baby until it is born.

My other booties are crocheted in pink or blue yarn.  There is one in aqua and one adorable Mary Jane bootie in black and white.   All booties are sized for newborns and a couple are stretchable for older babies.

I hope you will take a look at my creations and consider one of them for the shower or new baby gift.   Shipping is free in the US and posted for International sales.

Why I like my etsy store

My Etsy store is my source for some extra income as well as the satisfaction I get from the responses  from the people who purchase my items.  My handcrafted jewelry is diverse as well as colorful and unique.  When I make a piece of jewelry I imagine who will wear it and where, at her job, a party, or just for fun.  My jewelry covers all sorts of possibilities.  Some are dramatic, some simple, most are brilliantly colorful, some for evening wear, some for casual wear, but all are original designs.  I tend to like the dramatic items best.

Most of my time is spent on the design, putting the beads together to best show off their beauty. I am fortunate to have a variety of sources for unusual beads and materials to make them into a piece of jewelry.  I get most of  my  ideas from the beads themselves.   I have also  helped friends to get started making their own jewelry. This occupation is my pleasure.

Although sales have been slow these past few months it doesn’t stop me from looking for new ideas, new beads, and new ways to promote my Etsy shop.  I list almost all my creations on Pinterest and some of my  creations are also available in Classifiedads.com http://bit.ly/Oh2WzL   and I have an Ebay site for a few.

In a few weeks I will be promoting a new category on Etsy, Baby Booties.  I have crocheted 5 sets and am just waiting for them to be photographed.   I have no camera so I have to wait for my daughter to take the pictures for me.   I hope they will be well received.  I will announce their promotion here.

Please take a look at my Etsy shop.   The items for sale are not just jewelry.  I have vintage items that belonged to older members of my family and decided to pass them on to someone who will appreciate them as much as I did.   In addition I have included some other types of creations, such as a beaded purse, a knitted baby afghan, a hand painted blouse, a vintage hat, a macrame belt and much more.

Have fun with my shop!
