This is how you do it

When I checked my mail today the last thing I expected to see was my candle from WGSCandleCo! She shipped this little jewel out mega fast! I was immediately impressed by her little stamped box. So cute and professional!

WGSCandleCo also included an awesome business card printed front and back. Great design and not the typical "business card" shape. Very original!

The smell of Amaretto Chocolate wafted up from the box! Oh and my favorite color is purple. Pretty and secure packing materials!

I popped the candle in an old teacup, but she sells the Shot Glasses online. They're beautiful! For the record, she did not ask me to blog about her product. In fact she does not know I'm writing about the customer experience. I simply want to make a point. I've been reading in the Etsy forums little tiffs and arguments about whether pretty professional packaging is important or shipping time and "getting it out the door as fast as you can" is. Why can't it be both to create a memorable purchase and delivery? WGSCandleCo proves it CAN be both.

Thanks WGSCandleCo. :)

Rose, Golden Saffron, Watermelon OH MY!

Today I went nuts over some beads and things, came straight home and got to work! I've been looking for an intense, bold, loud pink and found just that.

Lovin the yellow!

The pink mosiac mother of pearl earrings remind me of stained glass!

Blazin Fumes

I'm not sure what this dog is eating, but he's had the WORST gas lately. I've been monitoring his food, and he's eating the appropriate amount...

I went out today and took him for a walk and noticed patches of grass that are gone. Actually, patches of wild onions that have been ripped up. He must be eating these onions when I'm not looking. What a wack-a-doo!
I might slip a beano in his Nutro Puppy Max. HA!
(Thats my sister btw!)

Fried Lovin

Ha! Thats all that needs to be said.

Jagged Lil John Hancock

No matter your opinion on the HCR Bill (I'm PRO!), you have to admit, this signature is nuts!

Obama had to use a million pens to sign this thing. Look how jagged that "O" is! Hahaha!

The Looking Glass and Emerald City

Today I listed the VERY last of two of my most popular items...The Looking Glass Necklace and Emerald City Earrings...

The Looking Glass Necklace is a focal piece not for the weary! Sure to be noticed in the soft golden necklace!

The Emerald City Earrings have dwindled from 8 pairs to ONE! Gorgeous hunks of faceted green teardrops hang on antique brass.

The camellia bush is blossoming and absolutely gorgeous! Clipped a dozen or so of these big blooms and scattered throughout the house in little bud vases.
