Just wanted to give you a sneak peek at what I'll be carrying in my shop. I know that some of you have checked it out already and have seen what I've sold in the past. As of yet I haven't had the chance to purchase the rest of the items to make the lip balms or soaps but I might get to that soon.
For now I'll be listing in Daren Diana Designs some of the following items:
Baby booties, chain maille jewelry (my husband makes some really lovely pieces), and gemstone jewelry that I handcraft. I'm a registered jewerly artist with the SRAJD and my number is #137. I registered with them, and was accepted by them about 6 years ago.
Now because of a bit of paranoia, a healthy dose mind you, I won't be posting photos on here of my work until I've listed it in my shop. Yes, people love to steal designs. I did run into that when I was with Etsy. A little war ensued and I removed a few of my items because another girl insisted she had them first. It of course as a lie. I was stupid enough to show photos of my items, in a forum, before I listed them. I thought for sure no one would be a copy cat, why would they bother I thought? I trust my regular readers but there are those that like to lurk that might decide what I have is quite novel and want to get in on it. There isn't much I can't craft. I used to make 3.5 inch floppy disc note pad. I used to make credit card note pads too from all those cardboard credit cards they used to send in the mail. I used to make bullet jewelry before it became a hit on ETSY and I took quite a bit of flack for making it from the community that thought it was too violent because of its very nature. Oh give me a break! Most of you know where I would have gotten my spent rounds because my spouse and I like to go target shooting. I will be putting some of that very stuff back into my shop too. Well the stuff that I can get away from my spouse that he won't be trying to reload that is.
Alright enough of my babble. I have a healthy paranoia as I've explained above.
