New projects to come!

Hello, my faithful readers (and shoppers)!

I apologize for not blogging more, and especially for neglecting to list the items I promised in my store by September 1st. Life happened, and realistically, I just have not had much free time on my hands to work in the shop.

However, that will change this weekend. :) So stay tuned, as I'll have at least two items up on Saturday.

Also, I'm hoping to host my first giveaway next week! YAY!

Long to short

Well, I am feeling quite uneasy this morning.

I had a goal to get 9 more items into my shop by today, and's just not going to happen. :( I was very busy the last couple of weeks with life in general, and I just didn't make time for the shop like I should have. I suppose I could finish up some projects tonight and attempt to put them online for you all, but I'm trying not to be set on it.

Basically, my long-term goals are screaming to change to short-term. Ready, set, here we go: 5 new items in my shop plus a giveaway by this Saturday, September 5th. :) How's that sound?

Last day to vote in the poll!

Hello everyone! It's the last day to vote in my poll. You do not have to belong to Gmail or Google to vote! Just vote! I'm working on new projects based on the voting. Thanks!

Yes, another new item!

Hello, everyone!

Well, there are only 2 days left to vote in my poll (see the right hand side of the screen ----->), and I am really desiring to know your opinions! (You don't have to belong to Gmail or anything to vote; you can just vote, and it will count! Don't forget to tell me you voted, though, so I can give you the 10% discount!)

Additionally, I started AND finished an item last night! :) I wasn't really intending on listing it first thing this morning, but it just happened to work out that way. How nice!

So, the newest item is the Harvest felt wall hanging. I'd really like to know what you think of it, because I really enjoyed making this one! I may be making some more longer ones, or sets of 2 hangings, depending on the feedback.

Thanks so much!

I'm back!


Well, Robert and I made it home safely yesterday afternoon. We had just a bit of traffic heading towards Montesano, but after that, it was smooth-sailing! I wish we could have stayed longer with his family in Long Beach, but alas, I had work and wedding planning to return to!

Which brings me to my special little announcement! I'm finishing up some more of the 3" Autumn pots tonight! I don't know if I'll have enough light to get pictures up and get them listed before tomorrow morning, but we'll see.

Don't forget to comment this blog with your favorite item, update your Facebook or Twitter status' with your favorite item, or follow this blog - all for discounts! :) (To follow the blog, just look to the right hand side of your screen and click, "Follow." It will prompt you for your Google account information, and then you can just follow the blog automatically!)

In the works...

First of all, I want to thank you all for being so kind and patient with me. :) I'm working hard to balance full-time work, 10 credits of college online, ministry and life in general in addition to my new store. It's definitely a work in progress.

Secondly, I am working on my Strawberries and Cream jars, which will be viewable by tonight. The Hope & Love country-esque boxes that will match the Faith box will probably be up by the end of the weekend, as I'm very busy this weekend.

Last, please follow this blog! There is a link on the right hand side -------->

Thanks again, everyone!

And...we're up and running!


Welcome to my Essential Charm blog!

For those of you who are just seeing this for the first time, this is a blog specifically for my etsy shop, Essential Charm. Please, visit often! My etsy username is kimialex. The shop name is Essential Charm.

Currently, there is only one item up in my shop, as I have been very busy preparing and getting things in order and ready to go. It's the Dual Cherry-On-Top mini glass jars. Stay tuned; there will be many, many more this week!

If you would like to request an item (specifically, painted on any of my glass items), please do so. I'll do my best to accomodate you. Also, be watching tonight for the first 2 listings of the NASB Bible Verses on wooden templates. :) Again, I can paint any verse you want with any colors you want- just let me know! Tomorrow I hope to start listing some of my newly covered photo boxes.

Thank you for reading!
