If you are among the me who didn't already know about Yvonne at My Elements, let me tell you about Yvonne at My Elements. Yvonne rocks. And so do her Elements.
I'll admit I was pretty taken aback by the excessive shipping costs on her listings, but because I needed 2 of the things in my cart and really wanted a few other things I went ahead and made the purchase. Afterward I contacted her out of courtesy to let her know that because of the high shipping add ons per item, I removed over $30 from my cart prior to purchase. So for the extra $6 I paid in shipping she actually lost sales. Moral of the story? Padding shipping fees is a good way to go out of business.
Unless you are Yvonne at My Elements. She responded promptly and the situation was resolved to my total delight. She's such a sweet and professional vendor that I want to put her in my pocket so I can take her out and use her to ward off future poor behavior on the part of anyone to whom I am trying to give my money.
Her shop is filled with the usefully eclectic and unusual, so naturally I want to move in. If someone could get to work figuring out how to digitize me and my furkids, we'll be packed and ready. Thanks.
Here are the treasures I couldn't leave behind (plus some extras which she selects and includes with every order). I'm not going to show you too much detail, because I think you need to go have a look around HER SHOP.
Mary over at McDuck Creations has these fantastic cable neckwires ON SALE. I am wary of magnetic clasps, so I only ordered a single pack of bronze and black. Once I had them in my hands I immediately ordered more. The clasps nestle deeply ~ they are very well made making these perfect for any kind of single focal as well as beaded cab ensembles, and you definitely can't beat the price.
Her supplier is discontinuing them, which means if you don't go snag some right now you'll probably hit me up for some of mine later, and even though we are Bloggy BFFs I will laugh in your email's face while hoarding my cords like crack.
Let's discuss sewing for a second, k? As in aside from hand stitching a button on a shirt or hand quilting a blanket, I can't do it. That's really kind of an understatement. I once attempted to make a doll form on a sewing machine and it took the entire fire department 4 hours and the jaws of life to extricate me from it.
I admire those who can and appreciate those who do, because sewing ain't for
A few months ago, Stacy from SLMPeterson gifted me with a handmade bead clutch that spreads out to become a beading mat complete with pockets and a zippered compartment. It is most awesome for storing a project in progress and folds up perfectly to fit in my purse. I love it.
She recently shared a custom order curling iron bag on Facebook....which we'll call curlybag! here because curlybag! is fun to say......and since I am a closet OCD (literally, the bathroom closet must.be.orderly.) I decided a curlybag! is a must have. I was totally right.
Mine came in the mail yesterday, so I slept with it last night.
To sum up the quality and beauty of these fabric creations....
If you've got a custom sewing need, Stacy is your girl.
