Hello Ebay!

Life has been so strange lately.  Have you ever had that feeling that things are about to change but you don’t know how?  I had that feeling a few months ago, and boy have things changed since then.

I used to sell a lot of my products, mostly Suncatcher Craft Eyes, on Amazon.  That changed recently when Amazon changed some of their policies.  It is no longer worth it for me to send products in to Amazon’s warehouse and have them sell and ship them for me.  It was costing me twice what it would cost on my own website or even Ebay.  So I switched to merchant fulfilled, which means my products are still on Amazon, but I’m shipping them myself.  More on that in this video:

To cover the lost income from Amazon, I started selling on Ebay, both my own products and vintage items.  It’s been a journey and a really fun one at that!  I’ve learned a lot over the last couple months, and I want to share some tips and tricks for selling on Ebay, so my new hobby is making videos while I list on Ebay.  Most of these have information I wish I’d known when I started.

Of course my Suncatcher Craft Eyes  website is still going strong, and so is Etsy.  I can’t wait to see what this new journey brings!

Take care, stay warm, and let’s hope this snow lets up sometime soon!

Time to prepare for the holidays!

order earlyIt’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:

HAPPY2016 – save 10% off any order
BULK25 – save 25% on any order over $100 US
Happy crafting!

Product review by La Rose du Rang

Special thanks to Karine of La Rose du Rang ( La rose du rang ) for reviewing Suncatcher Craft Eyes and even creating a special design with them! Love that this blog is in French and English: La Rose du Rang blog  (scroll down for English)

This is the doll she made with her Suncatcher Craft Eyes, isn’t she sweet?:

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!
