The one about the extra stuff

I have been cleaning out my creating area. Getting rid of a lot of my scrapbooking paper and some art books. I have a large pile that keeps growing....things to put up on eBay. I also have some extra old goodies that I may end up parting with. I have been collecting small old bottles......tons of vintage looking trims. So pretty!! I have toyed with the idea of opening an Etsy store, but everyone seems to have one. don't know yet. Selling my Sparkle Bella kits went SO well ( I was truly surprised how fast they went!!), I may just sell some extra stuff right here on my blog. dunno yet.....I have thought about opening an Etsy shop to sell my artwork. After I create something, I have no use for it. I don't want to be the only collector of my art!
Here's a peek at only some of the extra trims. I am just crazy about these, but I have way too many to ever use. I have something cool planned for the old bottles---after I clean them up. :)

Oooh! Your trims look wonderful. Great colors and all. I have a thing for old bottles also. I need to start doing something with mine too.

Those trims are adorable! A tip...in case your looking for one...to clean old bottles easily, you can put some seed beads in the bottle and enough CLR (I'm sure another cleaning detergent would work) and shake. Make sure you wear gloves! It works like a charm.

Etsy-for sure! I've got a shop & it's fun, easy to use & inexpensive. Love all these goodies. I really should do a sweep through my studio & clean-up a bit too! I keep dragging home more each week though...

Can't wait to see what you do with the jars. I could certainly take some of those trims off your hands. Hehe!!!

I love those trims and bottles! I saw on another blog how she used old salt and pepper shakers for her glitter....

Because I am SUCH a good friend, I'd be happy to take some of that, um, trim off your hands. Really...no sacrifice AT ALL!

(aren't I so generous?!?!)

And...you really SHOULD open an etsy shop!

Well, I would be happy to swap vintage trims with you! The ones you show here are gorgeous! I have lots and lots of pretty trims too! :0)
You are right about everyone having an etsy store. It does seem that way lately, but it is fun. Lots of work, but still fun!
Can't wait to see what your plan is for the little vintage bottles!

You've done it again... I've salivated all over my keyboard. I just love these trims. I think I have a problem with lace and ribbon addiction... but the first step is to admit that you have a problem... right?
