A Special Holiday Thank You!

Holiday Thank You

I must say I was very blown away this Holiday Season.  Wow!!!  This was absolutely the busiest Holiday I’ve had since I established The Pink Locket and opened up my Etsy store in 2008.  A week ago I was putting Aiden  in his car seat and he heard the “Cha-Ching” sound go off on my phone.  With a confused look on his face he says “Mommy what’s that sound?” I said, “That means we got another Etsy Sale! Yayyy!” and he smiles.

This Holiday was full of surprises indeed, not only did The Pink Locket make record sales, but I was able to partner with amazing individuals like blogger Courtney Creer of Believe In Style on a giveaway.  In addition, I was able to work with Kabbage and Modani Furniture and create blog posts and fashion mood boards.   Considering The Pink Locket is a one woman show (smile), I work full- time, have a husband, raising three wonderful boys and two dogs (yes they require attention too), and I peg away at DIY projects  – that’s not too shabby I’d say.

I’d like to take this time out to say THANK YOU to all my customers, new and old.  You continuously help me to strive to do better and be better, whether it’s challenging my limits as a jewelry designer or business woman.  There are times when I get frustrated and feel like hanging up my wire cutters, but you motivate me to be better not just with The Pink Locket, but in everything from my career to personal life.  I hope you have a wonderful Holiday and many blessings and positive vibes to you in the New Year.

Also, if you’ve placed a jewelry order prior to 12/16 you should receive your order shortly, if you haven’t already.  All orders placed on 12/16 and after will not be received until after 12/25/14.

Thank You and Happy Holidays!

Make It Monday: Shimmer Inspired Jewelry Stand

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of joining other creative entrepreneurs at CNC’s Annual Holiday Market.  I don’t do a lot of shows, but when I do I like to change up my displays a bit.  Operating on a shoe string budget, I needed a way to nicely display Statement Rings .   I found this wonderful idea on Pinterest and used it as my inspiration from Planet Blue:

Gathering some tools and supplies I had laying around I was able to create this white and gold accent jewelry stand to display my handcrafted Statement Rings beautifully.

Here are the simple steps to create your own!

There’s just something about a nice pair of black leather pants that are classic.  Here’s a great look for a slightly edgy and fun Holiday party.   After all a little shimmer won’t hurt!

Giving Tuesday – Giving Shout Outs To These Entrepreneurs

Holiday Gift Ideas

 

It’s Giving Tuesday!  A lot of times when people think of giving they think of some sort of monetary donation or giving away something tangible.  The reality is giving can be as simple as giving your time to someone who really needs it, giving your expertise and sharing your knowledge.  We all know the power of “word of mouth.”  It’s how many entrepreneurs get off their feet and it’s also free publicity.  In honor of “Giving Tuesday” I’m giving some fellow entrepreneurs who I know personally a shout out.  They’ve created wonderful brands and stand behind them 100% and if you don’t believe me then just check out their products…one word…A M A Z I N G.  Don’t forget to pick up something for yourself and someone else from their stores too! ;)
