Cyber Monday . . . and free shipping

I'm jumping on the Cyber Monday bandwagon and holding an extra special sale. It's a BUY ONE, GET ONE 1/2 OFF sale. Yep, purchase a colorful silk from my etsy shop and pick out another colorful silk for half off. Of course, it goes without saying (but I'm going to say it anyway), the half off comes off the silk of equal or lesser value. Sale starts now and end at midnight (EST) on November 30.

And, it gets better. Buy two silks and get 1/2 off two more silks. Buy three silks and get 1/2 off three more silks. You get the idea!

And, even better. Shipping is free on everything in my etsy shop. Yep, free. On everthing.

Once your purchase is made, you can pay via PayPal and I will refund the 1/2 off on all eligible silks. Or, if you prefer, just wait for me to send you a revised invoice via PayPal.

Happy Holiday Shopping!

P.S. - My sister's etsy shop, The Beaded Edge, is also having a Cyber Monday sale. All the details and rules are the same.

Envy in the Spotlight

I love happy customers. And, I truly love happy customers who share lovely photos of them enjoying their new silk! One such customer, Rochelle, shared some amazing shots taken by Ken Jackson. Like a proud mom I want to show-off Envy (the silk veil) and her time in the spotlight. However, I cannot overlook the beautiful, artistic photographs taken by Ken Jackson. I wish I had this much talent with a camera :D

Below are a few of the photographs. For more of his beautiful work, visit his website at Fish Trap Stairs is one of my favorites!

It’s hard to pick a favorite, but these are my top picks!

(I love how the silk veil seems to be standing on its own)

Pretty in Paisley

Give me some salt and silk, and I'm happy. Drawing with salt is a tricky endeavor. You have to "draw" quickly and precisely. Your mistakes are usually glaringly obvious. Rarely can you correct it, but you can rethink your design and camouflage it. Plus, you have to know your salt and how detailed it will let you be. I personally enjoy it, especially the challenge of drawing with salt.

Pretty in Paisley is a recent silk. She is a deep and colorful combination of sapphire blue, royal purple, and grape purple. And, of course, she has paisleys all over in varying sizes. And, it goes without saying, the paisleys were drawn with salt!

She is a silk wrap, measuring approximately 2-yards (72") long and 22" wide. Drape her around you like a shawl. Wear her like a scarf. She can also be a mini-sarong and worn as a top or skirt. Get creative and use her as decorative wall art.

Drop by my little shop of colors and see more of Pretty in Paisley!
