My first Etsy Sale!

Oh, happy day! I got my first Etsy sale today! I'm so excited. My hubby says "we're rolling in the money now". :)
Now it's just the matter of getting it boxed and shipped. I'm always nervous shipping my glass. Although I wrap things well, double box and cushion, you never know with the Post Office or any other shipping company for that matter. Sometimes I think they just like to see if they can break your items no matter what you do. And then of course, all that boxing, cushioning doesn't make for pretty packaging. But I'm just happy if it get's there safe and sound and the buyer enjoys it.
Anyway let's all celebrate! Maybe more sales are on the way.

Something Shiny for that Someone Special-Dichroic Glass Pendant

Shiny, bling, Dichroic Glass Pendant
Here's something your someone special may like. It really sparkles, especially in the light. Makes a nice gift for yourself or someone else. I love Dichroic glass, because of the way it sparkles and shines. These 2 have lots of bling. So check these out at: And for some sterling silver and gemstones check out:

New Recycled SoBe bottle Candle holder/Serving dish/Wall Art

Looking for a neat gift for a young person/teen? My son loved his SoBe drinks, and the bottles. So I decided to fuse one in the kiln for him. He loved it. Said it could be used to set something on or hang on his wall. This one is Lava Lizard on his Kayak. Teens love abstract things like this.

Could also be used just to set your change and such on on your dresser/desk.

Today's word is RED

How many of us love red? I do. It cheers me up, wakes me up, just makes me feel good. The red crayon in my box was always used up first. Red cars just look FAST! I've always wanted a "red '66 mustang". Instead I got a "spring yellow" '66 mustang. But hey, it's a mustang, right?

Anyway, in honor of the color "Red" check out these items. A gorgeous red coral necklace and earring set:

And if you like Texas things, this is the best of both worlds, a "Texas kiln-carved" suncatcher.

Your favorite Jasper

Jasper Stone

Jasper means “spotted or speckled stone”. It is an opaque, impure variety of silica and is usually red, yellow or brown in color. It is used for, among other things, as a gemstone. It can be highly polished and used for vases, seals, as well as gemstones. If the colors are in stripes or bands, it is also called striped or banded jasper. It is known to have been a favorite gem in the ancient world. Green jasper is very rare and highly prized, and was used to make bow drills in ancient times. There are many different names for the different types/colors of jasper. Some have been called snakeskin, blood, leopard,picture, or even Egyptian, depending on the banding, flow patterns or color variations. So the next time you wear your jasper necklace, pendant or put your jewelry in your jasper box, think about all the different ways and colors of jasper.

Also, check out my ladybug plant stake to go with those plants you're watering:

Tuesday, November 18, 2008


I was out checking all my plants after watering them after our light freeze night before last. Got them all uncovered. And as I watered my Rosemary and Salvia I noticed the rosemary was covered with blooms, bees and butterflies! Ran and got my camera and was finally able to get a couple of shots of the butterflies.

I do organic gardening and don't use chemicals, plus we do wildlife management here on our property. So I'm always looking for Texas native/adaptable plants that will draw in the birds, bees, butterflies, and other wildlife into our pastures and our yard. So I was happy to see some of the butterflies still here even after our cold front the last few days. Hope you enjoy the pictures.

And if you're interested in something for your garden for next spring, check out my bird feeder and plant stakes at my etsy shop:

Meet the Wicket community

For those of you that are computer wise, you may enjoy this interview with my son, Jeremy, about Wicket and his training program. I don't even pretend to understand it all, but I'm sure some of you do.

Brrr! It's cold outside.

Ok, I know for most of you it's really cold. But here in Texas we're just not used to 30's at night and 40-50's during the day with the wind blowing about 25-30 miles an hour. I could take the cooler weather, if the wind just wouldn't blow.
Anyway, with the cold, comes the wildlife out. We had a nice big 8 point buck out back at the water trough this a.m. And some turkey tracks in the rain puddles in the road. They don't like their picture taken, however.

And since it's cold now most places (or getting colder) you may want to remember that nice sunny day at the beach. Why not try this to help you remember?

Neatostuff Great Marketing Exchange

Time for the next site on the Neatostuff Great Marketing Exchange. It's a cute little shop with the cutest little baby tutu's and a gift certificate if you're not quite sure what you want.

Let's all support the great shops at Etsy.

I've got a cute terra cotta mosaic bird feeder and some cute little windchimes and garden twirlers. The garden twirlers are a little difficult to picture, but it's 3 diamond shaped slumped pieces of art glass that have holes drilled in them and attached to each other with fishing line and then they're all attached to a small piece of drift wood found on my ranch property. It has a chain attached to it for hanging. I have a purple one on etsy right now and have a beige one ready to list when I can get some good Pics.

New Copper Dangle Earrings

Just got some Copper Dangle earrings listed on

My user name is KayzKreationz, but you may just have to search for copper earrings or click on the link if it shows up. Still need to work on the pics, but it's getting late. Another day.

Fused Dr. Pepper Bottle Windchime

Well, got the Dr. Pepper windchime listed tonight. It's really cute. It's made from the Dr. Pepper bottles with the Dr. Pepper made with Pure Imperial Cane Sugar. It will make a cute gift especially for the Dr. Pepper drinker.

Hopefully it will get me my first sale in my etsy shop.

Dancing with the Stars

Hi all, watching Dancing with the Stars while working on some paperwork and some glass ideas. They all seem to be doing well. Hoping my paperwork and glasswork goes as well.

Got asked about doing an interview on another blog. Should be fun.
Plus got in as VIP for the new etsy advertising site. Working up my posts and ad. Anxious for it to get going, hopefully in time to get us some good sales for the next month or two.

New glass in the works

Got to fire some glass today. Am working on some purse hangers. And got some pictures of one of my windchimes. It's Dr. Pepper. Hoping to get it loaded tonight. Also have a regular glass windchime I'm getting pictures of to get listed on one of my sites.

Still struggling with my pictures. I either have too much glare, too blurry, or something. Hubby got out his tripod for me to try and see if that helps. Need to find the book on my camera and see if I have a macro setting. Although with the windchimes the problem is they won't stay still unless I lay them down on something. Every time I think I'm going to get a good picture, I look and one or two of the bottles has turned and you can't see them. Oh well.

Neatostuff Great Marketing Exchange

Hey all, great that I got my site back. Don't forget to keep checking back. Starting Thursday, I'm participating in the Neatostuff Great Marketing Exchange. I'll be blogging about the etsy shop of the day so you can all check it out. You can also check it out on my plumdrop or twitter page, or right in my shop announcement.

I may not put the link in since I had a problem with this yesterday and they locked my blog. So if you don't see the link, just visit etsy and look for that particular shop.

This should be exciting and help us all get more views and hopefully sales.
