3 Day Blow Out Sale and Time To Say Farewell,...

Well, it's time to pack it in and call it a day! 

I'm closing my Etsy store on November 30th.

Most of you who follow along with me here know that I have been doing a lot less, jewelry-wise, this year because I've been immersed in the business I co-own and run with the hubs.

And, since things are continuing full-force, I decided it was best to close up shop and let the jewelry business simmer for awhile. 

I think I'd stop breathing if I had to quit creating all together, so I will be doing things here and there, and I'll be putting designs up over on Facebook (I honestly get more inquiries via FB than anywhere else!) or here on the blog every once in a while.  

If you see something you want, just message me to ask about it and if it's available, I'll 'ring it up' for you!

And Here's The Good, Juicy Stuff,...

This Sunday from 10:00a.m. to 2:00p.m. my sister and I are having our annual Fall Boutique at her house. It's going to be my last show for a while too, so if you're here in central AZ, stop by and join us. We'll have all kinds of fun jewelry designs, plus, my sister will have many of her fantastic paintings  and note cards she's been doing recently (did I mention she's an amazing artist??) for sale as well.  

Here's some of her work she's posted over on facebook recently.

Incredible, right?! 

In the meantime, before I put my jewelry making tools away, I'm having a huge Jewelry Blow Out SALE over in my MiShel Designs Etsy Shop.  

For the next 3 days, 
Thursday, Friday and Saturday, 
November 15th, 16th and 17th, receive  

Yep, that's right - 40% OFF! 

Just use coupon code BLOWOUT when you check out through Etsy.  

Then, starting the 17th of November all items will be offered at 35% off by using code SAVE35 upon check out until I close my shop the last day of November.


Thanks for all your support, I can't tell you what it's meant and how much I appreciate it!

And, please come back here to the blog to catch up on things or follow along on the MiShel Designs Facebook page - I'll still be around every once in a while!


Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Transitions in Business!

I hope, even if you don't shop my store, that you're shopping handmade this season and supporting, as best you can, the small businesses online and in your community!
After all, it's the small things that count!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Spreading Holiday Savings!

Shop Handmade - Sale This Weekend!

Please take a moment this holiday season while you're shopping to check out all the various handmade items that are being offered by so many talented artists. 
One of the places you can find an abundance of amazing skill and talent along with some super cool gifts is here:

Shop Handmade HERE!
I'm participating in this line up along with some extremely talented artists and we'd be honored for you to purchase our wares to give to those you are shopping for this holiday season.

Some people are offering specials, so check each shop to see what's going on. There's a list of the participating shops at the bottom of this post for your convenience.
Just click on each photo to go to their shop.
In my MiShel Designs Etsy shop, I'm offering 20% OFF your total order from now through Monday, December 2nd, 2013 when you use Coupon Code "TURKEY20" upon check out with Etsy.

It can be challenging for small businesses, especially the ones whose items are handcrafted, to compete with the deep discounts of the big box stores.  So while you may not see a ton of 50% off coupons or 'buy one, get one free' type of deals while shopping handmade this  holiday season, you will find unique, quality items that are priced fairly and support those who create for a living, keeping the arts alive. 

Please, shop local, shop small business, support the creative arts and purchase handmade items anytime you possibly can this gift giving season.  

Thank you so much for shopping handmade!

It's the small things that count!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Enjoying Handmade!


Spring Break and Blogging Friends!

It's Spring Break this week for my son. We're usually in California walking along the beach in San Clemente, listening to the loud 'booms' coming from Camp Pendleton, taking in the waves, letting the salty air kiss our skin and enjoying fresh seafood.
This year we elected to have one of those 'stay-cations' every one talks about. Business wise (not my jewelry hobby/business but our Indoor Air Quality company the hubby owns) things are keeping us busy, so it was hard to justify stepping away (he never steps away and is always doing data review every single day for our associates) from some of the IAQ investigations that were coming our way this week.  Then there was the fact that my birthday is Friday and then Easter is Sunday and we usually spend that with family in another town here in AZ.
Plans got changed up a bit (having family in the Military, we're used to that!) and now "Easter" isn't going to be where it usually is and several members of the family are away seeing their kiddos and grand babies. And then, my boys said they would really like to go camping in the desert this week/weekend - and I thought that sounded nice, too - so that's what we're doing. 
Arizona's lovely in March - usually not too hot, not too cold - perfect weather!  We're hoping for some of that as we head out and enjoy the ruggedness of the desert and the awe-inspiring sunrises and sunsets our state is known for.

While I'm away, I wanted to share with you a new Etsy shop set up by one of my blogging friends - Lynda Carson.
Lynda's one talented jewelry artists and her blog, Fresh Baked Designs, has been on my 'must read' list for quite awhile now.
I love how she regularly shares her creative process and shows her readers her 'adventures' in designing.  Lynda's opened an Etsy shop because everyone was asking where to get pieces of her jewelry and although she has designs in some actual boutiques/shops near where she lives, there was nowhere online for people to purchase her wonderful creations.

I hope you'll hop on over to Lynda's Etsy Shop - which is called FreshBakedJewelry (because FreshBakedDesigns was taken!) - and see what she has to offer. 
Her jewelry is just wonderful!

If you stop by Lynda's blog, Fresh Baked Designs, this week, you'll see she's got quite a nice give-a-way going on for those of you who pass along her info via twitter, FB or other social media outlets.

I hope you're all enjoying your week and for those of you who are getting more of that icky weather with snow and the like when it's supposed to be Spring,....well, I feel for you, I truly do, and I hope you get  some "Spring" coming your way soon!!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Enjoying the Desert in Spring!

Hang Ups

I finally got some jewelry pics taken and sized and was able to put a few new things up over in my
Etsy Store yesterday.
I swear, it's like pulling teeth to get me to do this.  I do love to take the pictures, edit them and all that good stuff, so I'm not sure what my hang up is as far as putting up new listings.
Sometimes it's because the new things I have are possibly for a boutique, or they're going to a client, or lately it's because I've sent pics in to a bead magazine and am waiting to hear back.
But more so than not, it's usually just because I either haven't gotten anything new to list, or the pics aren't taken and edited yet.
What do you get 'hung up' on with your art and your business?
Hop on over to my Etsy store to see the rest!
Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Listings!

Untamed Spirit!

I wanted to share with you my friend Kim's website,
and tell you why it's so special!

Kim's a fellow GIA Alumni who holds a G.G. (Graduate Gemologist) and she has years of experience in creating beautiful jewelry as well as teaching jewelry classes.
Untamed Spirit has great tutorials, helpful links and wonderful resources.

Kim's meticulous about the details in her tutorials and you'll find them to be easy to understand and well organized.  Her Etsy shop is stocked with all the supplies you will need to create her lovely beaded wrap bracelets and the silver charms, clasps and buttons she has on her site are just the best; all with a unique flair that will definitely set your jewelry apart from the crowd!

And, to top it all off (as if all this wasn't enough?!) Kim's a really wonderful person with a wealth of information that she openly shares on her website, in her tutorials and also on her Untamed Spirits Facebook page as well.

Kim’s having a 3 day sale starting today and the coupon code is posted over on the Untamed Spirit Facebook page,
so be sure to grab that before you go check out all the fun things in her shop, okay?

So, if you're bummed because you're not at the Tucson Gem, Mineral and Bead Shows this week (or attending Fashion Week in NYC), rest assured,...go check out Untamed Spirit and get your fix of fashion and bling!!

Until Next Time,
Peace, Love and Sharing Good Things!!
