Copper Boom supports charity:water

January 9th, 2010

I’ve updated my etsy shop. Which means to exciting things have happend.

1. I have discovered that making jewelry is more fun than I first thought.

2. Copper Boom is now supporting charity:water. I will be paying myself what it cost to buy the supplies for the product. The rest of the money will go to charity:water. And, just so everyone knows, many, many, many of the items I make are from supplies I’ve gotten for free which means 100% of the sales from over half the items will go to charity:water.

Happy shopping.

A few items for the Etsy shop

September 5th, 2009

It’s a three day weekend so I’ve been busy sewing  and listing items in my etsy shop, Copper Boom.

I know you are curious so here’s a sample of what’s for sale:

A twirly skirt.

Gadget cases.

Cute hats.

I’ve also got a few more ideas lined up and (if I can find the time) I’ll be loading up the shop with great Christmas gifts.

Copper Boom, Baby!

Grand Opening

August 18th, 2009

I’ve finally done it. I’ve opened up my own etsy shop – Copper Boom – It’s a little bit of this and a little bit of that. Whatever I feel like making…I’ll take suggestions.

For shop updates, you can follow me on twitter.

If you like fruits and veggies….

….go check out my sister-in-law’s etsy shop. Aside from all her play food, she also has some new produce that is sort of food, sort of a doll and very cute. Think Christmas shopping people…

Somebody buy this for our baby

August 5th, 2008

This is the coolest stuffed animal I have ever seen. And it will go well in room decorated with an underwater theme, do you think?


Play Food

March 30th, 2008

My sister-in-law now has fake food in her etsy shop. Lexi just got a box of it and it’s as cute as it looks. Plus, if you order a bunch, you get a fun little tote to carry it all around in. Oh and the hair clips are fun, too.

Check It Out

March 7th, 2008

Check out Limor’s etsy site, Ninja Eema, she’s got more cool stuff listed. And there is a promise of more stuff to come. I’m pretty excited about the play food.

Where to Buy Cool Stuff

February 23rd, 2008

I’ve talked about this site before but it’s worth mentioning again. I love, love, love etsy. I’ve purchased pictures from here, the same wallet (twice) from here, a purse from here, and a baby sling from here. I am wanting things from here, here, here, and here.

And now my sister-in-law has opened up her own etsy shop. If you are in need of a cute (and very well made) gift, check out her shop. Lexi has gotten something homemade every year for Christmas and loves the dolls and blankets that have been made for her.
