Free Stuff! Free Samples!!! Freebies!!!

It recently came to my attention that you can get free samples of handmade products and only pay for shipping and the listing fee on Etsy the handmade marketplace.  So, that struck a cord near and dear to my heart cause I love getting samples of things that I am interested in trying before I buy a bigger quantity.

That discovery led me down a path of excitement as I contemplated the scope of possibilities this could have for my co-op members.  I always try out my ideas first on my families 3 shops on Etsy before I announce the ideas to the group, but this one I just knew would work so I shared it right away with them.

By now I'm sure you are asking yourself what are your 3 free samples you are offering us?  Well, I'm so glad you asked cause I'm ready and willing to tell you!!!!  Here they are!!!!  Tell me what you think and please by all means get them all so you can come back here and give our reader's your feedback.

In our Vintage 50s Treasures shop we are offering you one free yo-yo with a vintage button embellishment for .50 plus shipping!  Each sample is one per address in the U.S. only!  Next, up is our free sample my Jeanpatch by MK shop!

This freebie is one of my popular items.  Beautiful hand stitched envelopes.  The decorative side is inside and the white is on the outside for writing the name and address clearly.  I take custom orders for parties and weddings.  One of my customer's ordered 100 for wedding favors to put a CD in for each of their guests to have a memento of their wedding!  Pick one up today in my Jeanpatchbymk shop!

The ever versatile bookmark made from vintage book pages!  These are the cutest heart shaped bookmarks!  We take vintage books that we make into secret safe books and save the cut-out pages for other projects.  These make great gifts for avid reader's, teacher's and when you want a novel gift!  Pick up your free sample in our Reflections of Kayla shop!

Be on the lookout for the announcement when the rest of my member's have their freebies ready for you to try.

Happy Savings!

My Florida Garden Sept 2012

Green as far as the eye can see in my Florida Garden!

These purple and white flowers greet you as you come up the walkway!  The yellow flowers are what is raining down from my Rain Tree!  The bees are humming by the thousands around the flowers on the tree.

How many of you can recognize this plant hanging in the basket?  It is a rare plant and very hard to keep alive unless you put it in an ideal spot and don't move it, ever!  It is a rice cactus!  It gets shade and rain and plenty of morning sun.  I have had this plant for over 20 years!  Isn't that a huge accomplishment!!

I love succulent plants as well.  Before my illness I would get out in the yard daily and tend to my variety of plants.  Now they are pretty much on their own and somehow they still do great!!!  I guess the love God is pouring down on them for me is doing the job better than I could.

This is Kayla's corner!  Two rain trees seeded in the pot so we are waiting for DH to pull them out.  They have super-glue on the roots so it takes a man to uproot them.  The bottom pot is the rest of the succulent variety.  The frilly thin leaf plant is an umbrella plant, these are great for cleaning the air indoors. Then there is a lovely vine type plant that Kayla planted that has the prettiest yellow flowers.  It has over-grown the trellis and that is why it is leaning over.
Behind that on the wall is another vine plant called a filadendron.    And, the ever spreading passion flower vine is in the mix too!

I hope you enjoyed this walk in my garden today.  Please share your garden pictures with us on your blog or Facebook page and leave a comment here so we can take a peek.  I love gardens, don't you!

Have a Green Day!

Reuse, Recycle, Repurpose!

Where does the time go?  Here we are at the door of Fall and only 3 months away from closing out another year!  Do you have goals still for this year to complete?  If you are like me you have a list of things-to-do each day and some just never seem to get done on time.

Well, a while back I presented a new product line to my Etsy shop.  It was those beautiful vintage hankie greeting card and journal sets.  I've sold a few and had several more in the making and just needed to complete the inside of the cards.

So, this week I made it a goal to get those finished and listed in my shop.  Well, they are just about finished so I wanted to share them with you before I put them in my shop tomorrow.  Are you ready to ooh and ahh?  Take a look and tell me which one you like best!

I made ATC (artist trading cards) to go with each set.  The cool thing about these are that the little journal covers can be taken off and another new book can be put inside.  The inside of the card has a fabric pocket for you to keep little tidbits of stuff in and the card can be displayed on a shelf cause it is so pretty.

For all you purple passion ladies, this one is made especially with you in mind!  It comes with a cute journal cover that has a bird appliqued on the front.  Along with a special ATC!  This card is tall and just gorgeous, don't you think!

This is my coffee lovers set!  I appliqued a cute coffee cup on the front of the journal cover.  The card has the words Savor on the front!  When you love to drink coffee, you really savor every sip!

Never fear, I didn't leave out the tea lovers either!  This set is pretty in pink!  A cute tea cup is on both the card and the cover.  The inside fabric matches the journal cover.  A perfect finish to the perfect cup of tea!

You've heard of those birds and bees!  Well, this is the flowers and the trees and butterflies!  I love this set the most out of them all!  I just love flowers and butterflies!  I can't help it, it started when I was a child and stayed in my blood!  Green is one of my favorite colors so I focused on the green in the card when I made the cover for the journal and the little ATC.

Okay, so now you have seen them all.  Which one is your favorite?  Please leave a comment and let me know, would ya?

Have a Happy Day!
