January Top Droppers and Commenters and February News

Where did January go?!  It's February already, 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.  Even though this is a slow shopping season, there is still a lot going on here.  Come along for the ride!

Entrecard has had a few rocky days at the end of this month, but overall things have been pretty solid there.  Here are the top 10 for January.  Thanks so much to those of you who also take the time to leave me comments!


If you're new to this blog, you can check out my Top Commenters widget on the right side of my blog.  Just scroll down to see where you rank. 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.  I really appreciate those of you who take the time to leave me feedback!

Thanks to Grace of Dragon's Alley and Anne of Small Town Mommy for stopping by and commenting regularly!  Here are some lovely items from the ladies on my list who have Etsy shops.

Valentine's Day Promotion and Other Sale Items:
I have a couple different sales/promotions going on in my shop right now.  The first is my Valentine's Day promotion.
I'm offering free shipping on all items in my Valentine's Day shop section through February 14.  No coupon code is needed.  Many of these pieces are simply Valentine's Day color palettes and can be worn year round.

The second special is my "out with the old" sale, which is still going strong.
Most of these items are styles that I will no longer be making so get them from my sale section while you can.  These items will be discounted through the end of the month.

New Blog Sponsors and January Advertising:
I am wowed by the number of people who took blog spots with me this month!  Your support means so much to me.  All of these ladies have awesome Etsy shops and/or blogs.

My 2012 ad offer is over, but I've lowered my monthly ad price.  It's only $3 per month or $10 for 4 months to advertise with me now.  Check out all of the details about it right here.

Bring it on February!
The biggest thing going on the beginning of this month is an open house in the Chicago area.  If you are interested in attending, please leave me a comment with contact information so I can send you more information.  After that, I'll be focusing on listing new items in my shop, making spring greeting cards, and figuring out if there are shows I want to apply for this spring.

What's going on with your business and or/blog for February?


  1. Love your blog Rose!

    I nominated your for the Versatile Blogger award here;

  2. Thank you for the link love. I am waiting to post mine until I'm in my new home so probably tomorrow but definitely by the weekend.

  3. Your jewelry is great! I look forward to seeing more.

  4. It's interesting how many jewelry makers are now doing paper items as well...I wonder why this particular expansion (You with greeting cards, Sharla with the journals for example...)

  5. Congrats on your many successes Rose! And good luck with the open house:)

  6. Thanks so much for featuring my Guest Book :) I love reading your blog and seeing what you're up to!
    Good luck with both promotions and your open house!

  7. Thank you for featuring my journal Rose! I kinda slacked off on the Entrecard drops but time kept getting away from me. I love your Valentine bracelets!

  8. Happy February! Congratulations on all of your new sponsors. I still need to check out Entrecard.

  9. pretty Valentine jewelry!
    Thank you for featuring my silk scrunchie, Rose!

  10. Thanks for including a photo of my envelope pocket album, Rose! You have some terrific deals going on in your shop this month, so I hope that results in good sales for you.

  11. That's great that your sponsorship is working out! I notice that most of my visits are from EC, and I need to get back and visit that site, and reciprocate! I haven't spent a lot of thime there for some time! {:-D

  12. Thank you for mentioning me. I don't have an Etsy shop and that is really better for everyone. Whenever I get near craft projects, bad things start to happen. It's one of the reasons I enjoy looking at pictures from others so much.

  13. Dear Rose, Congratulations to all.

    I love the red Valentine's bracelet.
    Blessings Rose, Catherine xo
