My New Etsy Shop!!!!

I opened! I finally opened!!

Natsy Tatsy Designs is up and running!!!!!

I've been making earrings, bracelets, gift tags, cards and all sorts of handmade things and giving them as gifts forever. With the urging of some very sweet friends, I decided to open up an etsy shop to sell my handmade creations.

I am starting with earrings. I hope to have lots more items listed within the next week.

So stop by and let me know what you think? Am I priced right? Do you like the colors and variety of choices so far? What would like to see more of? Whatever feedback you can give me, would be greatly appreciated!!!

Here's a little preview of what's in the shop:

Pine Cone Tree Transformation

I recently found myself browsing the aisles of GoodWill looking for things to alter. So, when I saw this pine cone tree for $4.99 I knew it would be perfect.

I kinda loved it just the way it was but I was itching to paint it. At first I thought all white would be pretty Or maybe even red? But since I loved the way the Noel sign turned out after I spray painted it gold, I was itching to paint this gold as well.

And I am glad I did. I love it. I think the gold adds a subtle elegance to it and would make a gorgeous centerpiece for my holiday table. I still may add some glitter to it. What do you think?

GoodWill Gold

I am fortunate to have my local HomeGoods and GoodWill stores right next to each other. I always check GoodWill first in hopes of finding a hidden treasure. If I strike out, I always just head on into HomeGoods to see what they have. Lately, I've been scoring at GoodWill. Yay!

On one recent trip, I found two holiday decorating treasures. A pine cone tree and this Noel sign that was only $.99! What a steal!

I have been eager to try spray painting with gold metallic paint. I've seen so many crafters and bloggers using it and even though I am usually drawn to silver, I knew I had to experiment. I am so glad that I did. I can't stop. This Noel sign was is just one of the many things I've spray painted gold. I even spray painted our pumpkins gold! I'll share those projects in another post. I don't want to overwhelm you.

I used Krylon spray paint in metallic gold pictured below that I bought at Hobby Lobby for 40% off.

And after two coats my boring woo…
