Etsy Packaging


One of my favorite parts about selling on Etsy is getting to wrap each of my sold items with care and making it look beautiful for my customers. I also made a quick video on my process, you can watch it here; since i have a full time job in the day, I work on my Etsy shop at night.

Ralph Lauren


I previously worked with the Mad Men prop department in 2012, you can read about it here. I was contacted by someone at Ralph Lauren for a piece I was selling in my Etsy shop. I'm not sure how it will or has been used, but I am very happy to work with one of my favorite companies. The easel that was purchased may be used as a prop in a store or as a prop in an advertisement.

Holiday Candle Review: Fireside


 This Fireside candle has the scent of nutmeg, incense and patchouli combined with oakmoss, amber and cedar. I found it at Anthropologie for $38.00. The candle has three wicks and it's by Illume. The glass is Mercury Moonglow, with a green tone along the top part of the glass.

I was looking for a smooth smelling holiday candle that didn't smell like a Starbucks drink. I do prefer musky, woodland scents to sweet food type of smells. This candle smells like a bonfire in the woods in the best way possible. It's subtle, relaxing and very comforting. I wasn't planning on spending so much on a candle, but I couldn't put it down, I needed this in my life! I am really glad that purchased it, I'll already need to buy another one soon because it's already half gone. I've used it a lot and my apartment smells amazing because of it. This is a great gift and perfect for any home too. Treat yourself and buy this candle!

Happy Autumn

 
Happy Autumn! I made a video on how to decorate fall decor pumpkins! 
You can click here, for the DIY video, but I've also added it below.

 I also made a cute Fall bunting banner for my window. There's no video for that because painting words on fabric is pretty self explanatory. Below is a photo I took of some pumpkins at Trader Joe's. They were beautiful. I may buy a green one next year, that color is fantastic.
