Well, I might as well blog about this, since I'm trying to get everybody else to! If you don't know, I have been selling vinyl out of my home as a hobby for the last 4 years. I bought it for me to play with and selling it was just a bonus! I recently got into making hand stamped jewelry. I've seen it around and I bought some simple stamps to make some cute necklaces with some friends just before Christmas. It was so much fun! I didn't have the tools to make them look professional, but they were cute none the less.
The last couple of weeks I had some orders for the discs to go onto some FHE boards that I had made. They are magnetic and I made my magnets out my hand stamped discs and added some beads and charms to make the board uber cute! I think that's what the ball rolling and I debated on buying this HUGE starter kit. It was not cheap! It was not an easy decision! Jaron is still on strike. He is still working, but we can still feel the pinch. I decided to bite the bullet and buy it. I don't like doing things that are only half done or 'good enough'. So, it seemed necessary. I still need a few more things to get going the way that I would like, but soon I will be a stamping fiend!
I am having so much fun with it! I love being creative and being crafty. There is such a sense in accomplishment when you are done and you see what you have made. I seriously can't believe that I have made some really cute necklaces. There is a problem that comes with this though. Now that I am making my own necklaces pretty much from scrap, I seem to think that I need more designer stamps and more types of charms and beads and tools and metal and......well, you get the idea. I seriously have no patience when it comes to waiting to buy things that I think I need and that I know I will be buying eventually. I REALLY wish the strike would end!!!!!
Anyways, I will get to the point of this post now. Since I am starting a new adventure in the world of crafting I thought I would have a giveaway. The rules are simple. Go like my page on Facebook. It is called CreaTiffany's. Not CreaTiffany's Custom Vinyl......that is the old page. It will be removed once I have enough people liking my new page. So, go to the new page and like it. If you post in your facebook status about my giveaway you get one entry. If you blog about my contest you get another entry. If you buy over $15 dollars in vinyl you get another entry. If you buy a hand stamped item you get another entry. I will be making the draw on the 25th of this month. I figured I would leave enough time for people to decide what vinyl or jewelry they would like if they want some for the contest. The prize is for $40 worth of vinyl and a hand stamped necklace!
So, what are you waiting for?
