New Shop - Trying Out Yatimi

A week or so ago, I noticed on the daily threads for the Promo Frenzy Team on Etsy that a lot of folks were talking about a new site for Handmade and Vintage goods called "Yatimi".  Seems that within a day, lots of folks were opening shops there, so I thought it was worth investigating.

Flash forward, I now have a shop on Yatimi, which you can find at http://yatimi.com/shop/RomanticThoughts.  The timing was perfect as I was coming up to expiration dates on my first items on Etsy.  Now that some of my items have expired on Etsy, you can only find those items on my shop on Yatimi.  Never fear, Etsy still has a lot of features that are not available on Yatimi - such as the teams - so I can't abandon Etsy!  My Promo Frenzy Team has been very important in helping me to build my business.

Nevertheless, I hope you will stop by my Yatimi Shop, http://yatimi.com/shop/RomanticThoughts, when you have a chance.  I am curious as to which shop people like better (especially shoppers) and why?  Let me know what you think. 

Here is a Treasury that I created in the last couple of weeks to display the work of other artisans on Etsy.  If you see something you like, click on it and it will take you to that item on Etsy.

Also, I want to express my appreciation for those who include my items in their treasuries, so you will also find a treasury by Barnwood4U and JoolsToDroolOver.

Have a great week and BE BLESSED!

The Copperhead !!!

My Mom injured her foot killing a Copperhead Snake a few days ago.  Between her being her laid up and my back injury, I am exhausted - but ever so grateful that she got the snake before it got her!  We lost one of our dogs to a copperhead snake last year.  :-(

Anyway, I didn't want to miss posting something this week, so I will take this opportunity to show you some new items in my shop this week...

First is this Double-strand pearl Bracelet with Blue Crystals

Next is this Bracelet of Green Aventurine with Silver Accents

And, Saving the Best for Last is this Cross and Vine Pendant Necklace with Pearls, Carnelian and Amethyst
Cross and Vine Pendant Necklace with Pearls, Carnelian and Amethyst
This very special pendant necklace features two pendant pieces - a cross and a vine, because Jesus said "I am the vine". The necklace is made of pearls and Carnelian and Amethyst. Carnelian was chosen for its red color to represent the Blood of Christ and Amethyst was chosen for its purple color to represent His Royalty.
Remember, the Promo Frenzy Team is celebrating the MEGA PROMO FRENZY SPECIAL during the month of August.  At my Shop, RomanticThoughts, you can get a discount of 15% when you use the coupon code "FrenzySpecial".  A lot of other shops are having specials, too, during this event.  So be sure to drop by Etsy.com and search for "promofrenzyteam".

Have a GREAT Week!!!  ...and here is one of my recent treasuries -
