November Top Droppers and December News

It's a new month, which means that it's time to thank my Top Droppers and Commenters once again and let you know what's going on with my shop next month.  Thanks to everyone who made November a great month for me!  I had a record number of Etsy sales and a landslide record number of shop views.  I have many of you to thank for that!

As a lot of you know, it's been a terrible month for Entrecard.  After the entire site had major problems for a couple weeks and was then completely down for over two days, everything came back up with no message whatsoever.  I understand that these things happen, but users should be notified and ideally, given something like free credits to make up for the lost time.  I seriously have no idea why I'm still there.  But for now, I am.

Thanks to everyone who fought through the frustration and still managed to stop by my blog on a regular basis this month, especially those of you who take the time to leave comments.  Here are the top 10 for November.

If you missed this last month, I now have a Top Commenters widget on my blog.  If you're interested in seeing where you rank, scroll down and look on the right side of my page.  It's right under my blog roll.  I will feature an item or give a shout out to everyone on that list or who has commented regularly (even if not within the last week) in this monthly post.

Thanks to Grace of Dragon's Alley for stopping by and commenting regularly!  Here are some lovely items from the ladies on my list who have Etsy shops.
In clockwise order from the top left corner:
1) Custom Photo Ornament - Laser Cut Wood by memoriesforlifesb
2) SILK SCARF, hand dyed, Leafy by SplendidLittleStars
3) Peaceful Holiday Cards - (4) Cards by storybeader
4) Kitty Cat Face Beaded Sterling Silver Earrings - Olive by BeadedTail

5) PDF Christmas Pattern for Felt Pets Stockings - Cat & Dog Christmas Stocking - Tutorial, DIY by SherHastingsDesigns
6) Green Winter Hair Clips: Green Christmas with Pine Trees and Holly by ForLoveofCupcakes
7) Midnight Star Earrings by AsteropeBC
8) Gift Tag Sized Card and Envelope Set of 6 - Spain Inspired by nfall2rt
9) Christmas Ornament - ACEO print of my original watercolor painting by tapestry316

My holiday sale in my Etsy shop is still going strong.  I have all Christmas items marked down 25% and lots of red and green items marked down 15%.  All sale prices stay good through Christmas.  Please note that I will have my shop closed December 2-4 while I'm at my big Christmas show so plan accordingly with your shopping.  Get free shipping on all jewelry orders with the code FREESHIP when you check out.

I've added a couple brand new Christmas designs this past month.

The second piece is part of my new wrap bracelet/necklace herringbone line.  The detachable charm is a clay Christmas tree from Lisa of LisaPetersArt.

Finally, I still have private sponsor ad positions available on my blog for December.  For more information, check out my advertising page.  Send me an e-mail or leave me a comment with your contact information if you're interested.


  1. i used to be a part of entrecard, but there were so many problems all the time. I left just after the market place started up.
    Knit, Nicole, Knit!

  2. It's so nice of you to acknowledge your readers...thanks. It's nice to stop by and admire all the "pretty".

  3. Thanks for the feature! I'm glad your sale is going well!

  4. Look at all those kitties who stop by to see Angel, we mean you! :) Thank you for dropping on us and the feature too! Sparkle has a 2012 calendar and holiday cards on her Zazzle site that she also advertises on her blog.

  5. I so agree with you about EntreCard. Their professionalism is nil.

  6. I love your Christmas bracelet, the beadwork is lovely!

    And much thanks for your comment on my 12 days of Christmas trees post!

  7. Beautiful new designs! It is so nice of you to feature your readers - thanks for featuring my little ACEO ornament! Always fun to visit your blog =)

  8. Thanks for featuring my stocking pattern!

    I love the idea of a removable charm. That is brilliant!

    You are so kind and generous when it comes to your Etsy friends.

    Good luck at your show!!!

  9. I'm not sure why I'm still on Entrecard either, but for some insane reason, I persist - so thanks for the acknowledgement!

  10. Thank you for the exposure of my two blogs, you are always welcome.
