A sneak preview.

As I mentioned in my last post, I'll be adding three new designs to the shop this week. What's holding me back is my irrational fear of coming up with good product descriptions for each item's listing. Sad, I know. I figured posting pics of the pieces here would help motivate me to get off my keister and just do it. Actually, my keister can stay right where it is, as I have wifi and a laptop.

Two hundred!

This is a very big occasion for me... My Etsy shop, {gemmifer} handmade, has reached 200 admirers! The shop has been open for a while now, and I am still learning the ropes of how to make a success of it, but the thought that so many people like what I've been doing so far is very encouraging and heartening.

To let everyone join in the celebration and to show my thanks, I am offering 15% off the price of all items in the shop until 9:00 p.m. EST on 4/29/12. Click on over, find what you can't live without (dramatic much?), and have it come live with you for 15 percent less cash (just be sure to use coupon code BIGTHANKS15 at checkout).

PS: I'll be adding three completely new designs to the shop this week. Which will also be included in the sale, of course. So be sure to check back here for an update. And THANK YOU ALL!

Swedish sweets.

A very neatly-organized selection of treats from Sockerbit, a wonderful Swedish candy shop in NYC's West Village. It's a good thing that I thought to shoot this on the day that I bought these sweets, as they were all gone soon after. The pale blue frogs were violet marshmallows, the pastel eggs filled with marzipan, the yellow bunny citrus marshmallow and the white bunny vanilla. Everything was oh so yummy.

Happy Easter and/or Happy Passover to all of you who celebrate!
