Sorry to those of you not on Facebook. This is the best platform for me to reach the most people at this time.
Getting closer to my goal of $1600 for the GoFundMe campaign. Thank you all so much. There have been 20 donations so far! Please consider checking out the campaign. I’m offering some nice thank you gifts. This GoFundMe is to help me stock up on craft eyes for the holiday season so that I can fill all orders that come in.
You can read/watch a video on my GoFundMe about why I need to do this campaign. Basically some of my family members needed extra help from me over the past year, so now I don’t have the personal funds to put into my business. Plus summer is my slow season, so there wasn’t a lot of extra business income to buy stock. Kind of a perfect storm of sorts. Once I get through this month and pay for this stock, things should be back to normal again. Thank you for all your support. Sharing this campaign on your social media helps a lot too.
It’s that time of year again. Summer is almost over, and school will be starting soon. Then there’s Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. These are all wonderful crafting opportunities, but they’re also the reason I get really busy this time of year.
I would like to encourage you to plan ahead and get your orders in early this year. My busy season seems to start earlier every year. I’m stocking up to be prepared for all orders big or small.
Usually by October I have to extend the order preparation time from 5 to 7 business days to 7 to 10 business days. I hate to do it, but it’s necessary in order to get everyone’s order filled in a timely manner. This extension lasts until around February or March.
To help you stock up, there are 2 active coupon codes:

These are some photo videos of the different color styles of my craft eyes: Opaque, Shimmer, Translucent, and Glitter. I’ve ordered a professional camera, so future photos should be much better quality!
This week there were a lot of pretty colors shipping out all over the world – Canada, Iceland, France, Great Britain, Australia, South Africa, and of course the U.S.
The purple and blue flower eyes and the black frosted craft eyes are heading to some crafters for product reviews.
Wishing you a happy, healthy, and prosperous new year!
