This is one of those super simple projects I’m ashamed I never thought of until last night. A few years ago I found this hair band on clearance. I knew I would probably never wear it, but I loved the flower so I bought it anyway. I have only worn it once until today (now it’s twice!). It occurred to me last night I could turn it in to a pin, so I did just that today.
Since I built a light box the new items I am adding have better pictures than my previous listings. I’m also punching up my listings. I don’t want to go back & update the old listings, so I marked them all 50% for 24hrs. Until Fri @ 10pm CST all my current listings are half off. Plus, if you use the coupon code IMLAZY you can get free shipping, US only.
I photographed the process of making a collapsible light box entirely from items on hand, so it was free. I’ll be posting that tomorrow.
I also made some turnip green gnocchi for lunch, which was a delicious experiment, & will be posting about that soon.
Plus, the new earrings I’m in the middle of listing right now. And another Pinterest inspired project or two. Oh, & a DIY version of a cool product I saw in a magazine. I have more ideas than energy/time!
I finally made my first treasury.
And my second.
And my third.
I’m learning as I go, & I seem to find things in one treasury that won’t work for that theme, but inspire another.
Here are the three I have made so far. I spent much longer on tonight’s than the other two, but I was specifically looking for items that had not been featured yet & especially from smaller sellers.
The first: Alabama Summertime
Summer theme featuring Alabama sellers
The theme was built around some of my earrings before I realized you’re not supposed to include your own items. Oops. I decided to go ahead & use them because I had built the treasury around them, & I find myself become less flexible as I get older, but I did put them last. After it was published, I noticed I also used the same seller twice. She is one of my teammates, so I picked her shop that way. I didn’t realize it was the same shop when another of her items came up in a general search for summer themed items from Alabama sellers. Since my noob was showing in this one, I had to make another one fast to redeem myself.
Never Too Old For Cartoons
Some of my favorite cartoons, because being a grown up is overrated.
This one was inspired by another teammate who makes Pokemon jewelry.
Bad ass women who haven’t been featured before.
This treasury was sparked by the She-ra & Teela magnets I used in the cartoon treasury.
I should go back to work now… I have several pairs of earrings that need to be listed, & more stuff to be made. I’m like a raccoon with a shiny object, easily distracted & frequently trapped.
Buy 2 (or 4/6/8/etc) items & I will refund you the purchase price of the less expensive item (or items). The purchase price is after coupons, before shipping. You will still pay shipping costs for the lower priced items.
It snuck up on me, but today’s Alabama Accents’ shop for the Etsy cross promotion is me.

Last minute change of plans, I decided to offer free shipping today instead of a discount (domestic only). The coupon code is ALABAMAACCENTSFREE
I spent the weekend working on my packaging, so got behind on my promise to list something new every day for the cross-promotion, but today I have made up for it!
And another thing I set up over the weekend, My Etsy Shop on my facebook page. It’s a new app I found to replace the old Etsy shop page they broke when they added timeline. BOO! What is really neat about MES though, is the ability to add a discount.
If you find something you like on My Etsy Shop, click it, & you will be given a coupon code for a 10% discount & free shipping in exchange for letting it post the item to your fb page. Not a bad swap, I’d say:)
I have a dozen of these paper flower hairpins available for just $1 each, five of the pink/silven & sever of the orange/gold. Each one is unique & no more will be made.
They are protected by two coats of a water based sealer. Each one is securely glued to a 2″ bobby pin with a felt back to make it extra secure.
You can also find this at my new shop on Goodsmiths.
