See you at ARTish?

This Saturday, September 29th ARTish will be held for the last time.

Just joking! This Saturday is the last time it will be held ouside in the center of Ljubljana. From October until April it will be held indoors in Kina Šiška. It's the last time this year I will be exhibiting and selling my bags. I have been a part of ARTish from June and I need a break. This Saturday will be the last time you can see and buy my bags directly from me. But no worries my Etsy shop will be open 24/7 and you can contact me whenever you like via email

I have a few new things to show you. First are short key chains. At first I only made long ones. Long enough to be worn around the neck, but then I was asked if I could make short ones too, so I did. Here they are:

A friend of mine had great idea and it turned out everyone wants one too. What is it? Key chain and a little bag for service card one uses at work. I don't use service card at my day job, but it's practical for Urbana as well.

Christmas will be here before you know it and I made drawstring bags that are wery practical for small gifts. They are very easy to make and if my photographic skills were any good I would make a tutorial for you.
A few members at Etsy Success team mentioned I should also sell pencil cases and a few days lates one of my friends also told me he wants a pencil case. So I made them :)) Those can be used as a cosmetic pouch too.

I have a lot of coin purses. Both zipper coin purses 

and very popular metal frame coin purses.
and metal frame clutches, cosmetic pouches, handbags, shoulder bags, cotton shoping bags. A lot more than I can show you in this post. If that didn't give you enough motivation to come and say hi at ARTish, well what if I tell you I will be having a few things as a giveaway? I'm not telling what, come and see ;-)

See you at ARTish?

Apparently Etsians are known for their insipred packaging. I have to agree. I remember when I bought first pair of earings on Etsy, they were so wonderfully packaged! It felt I was getting a gift when I opened the package. 

I absolutely  l-o-v-e  wrapping. I think it makes receiving handmade items a bit more special and it tells a lot about the shop. Obviously when I'm selling at Art markets I don't have time to wrap, so I use simple white craft paper bags and thank you tape. But when I sell on Etsy I take more time and effort in wrapping.

White paper bag, washi tape, ribbon and MOO mini card. This package below was sent to Ireland.

What's missing? Oh, yes, thank you card! This package in waiting for Nina to collect it at ARTish. 

I also stamped all paper bags with lovely rubber stamp I bought on Etsy. Sorry for terrible photo, but it says Handmade and For you.

Do you like wrapping too? Or receiving everything wrapped? Here are some simple, but very lovely ideas. 

I love this one too and I think I'll use it, since I have loads of fabric scraps.

If you'd like more ideas, you must check Etsy blog Packaging Inspirations.

Hi, remember me?

I can't belive it has been over a month since I've blogged! Where am I? What am I doing? I have been asked if I don't craft anymore? To that question I can only say I have more ideas than time. Is that an excuse for not blogging? You be the judge of that.

For tonight that will be all from me, but I promise to be back soon with more great stuff I'd like to share with you! Until next time, have a great time!
