custom rubber stamp.

Today, I would like to share with you my new custom rubber stamp. I recently did a custom order with etsy seller: paperfruithair to design my logo as a rubber stamp. Melissa of paperfruithair truly did a wonderful job! The package from Canada arrived about a week and half ago--- I was truly excited to open up the package.

Take a look at the fun packaging as well as.....

the adorable matchbox that my custom stamp came wrapped in...

I also got a few other goodies. Some fun little tags to practice on as well as a sweet little cupcake stamp.

Thank you Melissa for this awesome custom stamp. I look forward to sharing in future blog posts how I will be using the custom stamp in my packaging. Head on over to Melissa's etsy shop and take a look at her fun designs: paperfruithair

sketchbook no. 3

Haven't done a sketchbook photo in quite awhile. The shot actually includes the finished triskele-necklace that can now be found in my etsy shop. This necklace was actually a custom order, however, I really liked how the piece turned out and now is part of my diseño collection.

custom: silver ring (part 2)

So here is the second part of my custom: silver ring blog post, where I will be sharing some of the rings that are now available in my etsy shop as well as giving you ideas on custom rings. My 143 (I Love You)- Necklace is now also available as a ring! The 143 sterling silver ring is 5/16" inches wide--- the simple band has the numbers 143 stamped and has a liver of sulfur patina that has been removed in spots. Similar in style to the necklace!

Class of 2010- Ring has the numbers 2010 stamped... which would definitely make a great gift for a recent graduate!

I recently had an order on etsy where I customized the Class of 2010- Ring with the initials of the graduate's university. The recent graduate had just finished studying at Florida State University and didn't want a ring that was traditional, but rather something a bit more unique. Congrats to all the 2010 graduates!

This band can truly be customized to say anything you want from anniversary dates, your children's initials or names, high school or university names, fun words.... anything you can imagine! You can get the 5/16" width sterling silver band customized at no cost with up to 15 letters and/or numbers.

custom: silver ring (part 1)

Hello everyone! I can't believe it is already June. Time sure does fly. So I have been meaning to share with you some new ring additions to my etsy shop as well as lots more updates on new collections and stand out prom happenings. Looking forward to sharing all this with you-- next week.

In regards to those new ring additions in my etsy shop, I would first like to share with you a story about a custom listing I recently made. A fellow etsian contacted me in regards to making my 143 (I Love You)- Necklace into a ring. She wanted "143 xIP4I" stamped on the outside of the band with the same finish as the necklace.

I had asked her if she wouldn't mind sharing what "xIP4I" meant to her and she had told me it was their own personal little message, standing for "to the infinite power, for infinity"

She continued to share with me that she had recently received a "promise ring a few months ago, but that's now changed hands to be a sort of pre-engagement ring, if you will." She wanted to also get her fiancée something that was of equal importance. I was excited to be included in this special surprise. It was so cute to hear that they have used 143 since the beginning, and that they still have "battles pretty much daily" to say I Love You at 1:43. Which is something I had never thought about before.... very fun! Thank you Cam for sharing your story and congrats to you both.

Tomorrow I will share some of the new additions that can already be found in my etsy shop and some fun ideas for custom orders.... so stay tuned.
