When life gives you lemons... make coupons :)

I am not sure what's going on with the World, but it seems the norm for many people nowadays is to feel overwhelmed by what life is throwing at them. It's like the World is upset with us and trying to help us realize how it feels like when we gobble up its resources and throw all the pollution and noise at it.

Now I've been pretty quiet lately, so not much noise here, and I do try to keep my footprint small, so now can I have my life back pretty please? :)

Speaking of carbon footprint, shopping online is definitely taking less of a toll on the World... AND ourselves. No stressful mall madness, no traffic, and best of all -- better savings!

And you know what's better than shopping online? Shopping online for HANDMADE products.

Not only does shopping handmade help a real human at the other end of the deal, but it reduces your modern slavery footprint.

Ready for shopping handmade for the Holidays? Head on over to and get your pretties at substantial Cyber Monday style discounts. I don't think I've ever had such a huge sale before, so do take advantage of it because it won't come back for at least a year :)

And yes, the coupon does work on custom orders, so if you are looking for that special gift tailored to the recipient's taste, do let me know and I will be more than happy to create the Perfect Gift for you.

mv October Games and Giveaway - Tatyanna

Well, ever since Artfire has gone commercial, I can't login to my little handmade shop anymore so I couldn't get the handmade contest ready. I guess it's for the better, since I already have a lot on my plate nowadays, but I sure do hope they fix it soon.

So since I can't do anything if I can't access my shop, I will dedicate the entirety of October's games to Tatyanna and her amazing family.

Click this button to enter the Giveaway or scroll below for more entries. The more entries, the more chances to win!

This month's giveaway prize is $15 you can spend any way you want. You could choose to have them as a Starbucks Card, a custom jewelry piece made by yours truly, pretty cards from pretty photos I've taken, or even donate them to Tatyanna's cause... The winner gets to chose anything their heart wishes for :)

The drawing will be on the 18th at 11:59PM EST and the winner will be announced here the next day. Wishing you all good luck, and most importantly FUN! :)
