Consignment sales of guitar pick necklaces

I never dreamed that I would have my guitar pick necklaces on consignment somewhere, but thanks to a dear friend of mine from Church a while back it is happened!
I started out with just some phone charms on consignment and then they allowed me to add in some key chains. I was so blessed by their kindness! Then one night one of the people in the bookstore said, "I love that necklace!" My husband said, "Oh, she makes those!", so that guys says, "Why aren't we selling them in the bookstore?" The rest is history! =)
I told him I could make the guitar pick necklaces with crosses on them or with WWJD or even a dove, and he loved the idea and said, "We even have 'Pick Jesus' guitar picks that would look nice on a necklace!" I whole heartedly agreed!
I then began to make up a bunch of guitar pick necklaces and I brought them in for him to see...he loved them and put them on display for sale! I was thrilled to say the least!
I went in last week and found that 19 of the 23 necklaces had sold! So I made up 23 more guitar pick necklaces and they put them on consignment! I was soooo happy!!! I am so excited to see what God will do with my little...I know how He has always taken care of me and He's always been my guide!
I thank God that He guided my friend that day to help me be accepted into our Church bookstore; my friend had faith in me and he prayed that God would bless my jewelry business! I'm so thankful he did!!! =)

MattsCraftyWife a wonderful Etsy shop!

I've been chatting on a buy and stay thread on Etsy for some time and I also belong to a thread called the Christian Artisit Street Team, CAST for short and I've met the neatest lady! Her name is Anastasia and her shop's name is and she's got some of the cutest crocheted items I've ever seen and at such reasonable prices! She has been such a blessing in my life, because her items are of such great quality, but at the same time her prices are set where I can afford to buy more than just one thing! I've bought several things from her and I intend to keep on buying from her because she has become one of my dearest friends on Etsy! She's such a hoot to talk with and she's so bubbly, and the joy of the Lord shines through her words. Though we have never met, I feel like I've known her for years! =) One day I hope we can connect in San Diego, because she has an Aunt that lives there...and I my husband's family lives in San Diego! =)
If you want some wonderful Crocheted items and you would love to get items at reasonable prices, then may I suggest you pop into Http:// shop and see what kind of treasures you can find! =)

Treasuries are such a blessing

I have so many wonderful friends at Etsy who help me to get more sales that I would ever get on my own. They are so very sweet to help me by putting my creations in their treasuries that they create! It's a way for others to see a group of someones favorite picks!
Speaking of picks....I just got picked for a really nice treasury by a good friend on Etsy. Her name is Kelli and her shop's name is and she's a really sweet person I talk to almost every day. It's such a blessing to be picked for a treasury...and I appreciate each and every one I have been in!
Listed above is another treasury I was listed in...mine is the pink guitar pick necklace. is the one responsible for creating this lovely treasure listed with my pink guitar pick necklace in it!
I love making guitar pick necklaces, they are the most fun to create! The guitar picks are fun to drill and fun to string! I think I love guitar pick necklaces most because I love playing guitar and singing so much!
