Holiday Clearance Sale!

 Just a quick note to let you know I have placed all the Holiday bracelets and earrings in my Etsy shop on sale.

There is still a nice selection of bracelets and lots of earring choices to choose from. Everything on sale is 30% off and will remain that way until they are gone or I am tired of looking at the listings!

Thank you to everyone who supported my shop this holiday season! You made it my best season yet! I very much appreciate all of you who continue to come back and the new customers who have just discovered my shop and Etsy in general! It is truly a pleasure to be able to do what I do. I enjoy being able to create and I love the places this journey has taken me. My new Etsy shop, Principessa Glass, which will feature my own handmade lampwork beads will be actively selling sometime after the first of the year. If you go to the shop and save me in your favorites you will be able to see when I start listing. Also I have a blog associated with it called The Glass Princess Tale. You can check there for regular updates and my musing about glass in general.

I personally love shopping on Etsy! I love the individuality that comes from handmade items! It is so much fun to give a gift that is truly unique! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and that this New Year is a year filled with hope and joy! Thanks again for all of the support!

Christmas Countdown!

There are 8 days left till Christmas! If you are shopping locally you have 7 days left to shop, if you are cyber shopping you have 5 days if you include today! I still have lots of great inventory in my Etsy shop to choose from.

 If you are concerned about getting things on time, I ship everything USPS Priority mail and have all my packages out the door usually in less than 24 hours. If you order by Monday, December 21st. BEFORE the post office closes here in central time, which I believe is 5pm, I will personally make sure you package gets to the post office that day! Please keep in mind that if you place an order at 4:45pm on the 21st, that doesn't leave me much time to package things up and drive to the post office before it closes. Any orders that come in late on the 21st will be taken to the post office first thing in the morning on the 22nd.

Not always being as organized as I would like to be,(good intentions only get you so far), I have been the girl standing in line at the post office hoping and praying that my packages would get to there destinations on time. Most of the time, I must say they have, despite my lack of planning! Now, I of course can make no guarantees that a package shipped on the 22nd will arrive on time, since once I drop it off, It is out of my control!

For anyone prone to being a super last minute shopper, I would be happy to give you a quote for express mail. No, it's not cheap, but you did wait until the last minutes to shop and the stores really don't have anything left, so you might have to make some concessions! I tend to be home and on-line most days, so if you have questions about any of the items in my shop just send me a covo or e-mail. I can make adjustments to most pieces in my shop, so if something isn't exactly to your liking, just ask.

I hope everyone is having a calm and enjoyable Holiday season! It is very easy to get all caught up and get stressed out about shopping and family and such. I will do my best here at Juniper Gems to make sure everything goes as smoothly as possible. If things get too bad, have an extra cookie, everyone needs a reason to make their New Years resolution's!

Totally cool! This is a super cool video done by Starbucks for their Love Project aimed at raising awareness for AIDS in Africa. When you consider the aomount of technically work that had to go into putting all of these different voices together into one song, I think it turned out pretty amazing.

New Listings!

I've added a few new listings today to my Juniper Gems shop and should have more through out the week. I haven't been feeling that well, which has slowed me down a bit, but it doesn't take too much energy to just sit at the computer all day.

As you can see there are more Christmas trees to choose from, this batch has some of my smaller more petite trees. They are very cute, still sparkly and fun, just a little less of everything.

I have a lot more bracelets to list and more beads to make bracelets with than I have time to do so. I will eventually get around to it all. It is amazing how much moving can really mess up your life. You think you are settled, but there really are so many layers to get through.

 Hopefully I will feel better in the next day of two, too many more days and it will really oput me off my game for the holidays! I have lots of gifts to make, shopping to do and hopefully a little life to enjoy along the way!
Please stop by my Etys shop and take a peek at my new listings this week and if you haven't already visited my new blog or web site please check them out! I'd love it if you'd save me in your favorites on Etsy so you'll know when I start listing beads and such in my new shop!
