Even though I am on a hiatus...

...I cannot stay away from my micas, lol. I've managed to make 7 out of the 10 colors I had in mind for my PSYCHE collection which will be coming out sometime in June. Sometime around mid to late June (around the 2nd or 3rd week) is what I am hoping for with my 6 weeks of training which is coinciding with my hiatus. Hopefully I can get some swatches up sometime soon for you all so you can see how lovely they are! Also I figured I'd still offer maybe just a COTW or a few things here or there through out my hiatus. I feel bad closing down completely for a WHOLE 6 weeks.. I just can't do large orders.. so small ones might work.. If you have something in mind that you'd like to order contact me through my email or etsy and I can set something up for you. What do you all think?

The Conservatorie

I placed an order with them on Sunday (i think) and received my samples on Friday. Out of the ones I bought some DO look like ones I could grab over at TKB,, which irritates me because I hate buying more of what I already have as do most people. Their Lemon mica looks like the POP yellow so it would make a wonderful dupe. Their Sapphire Blue mica looks like the POP blue but maybe a tad darker.. I don't have TKB's Sapphire mica so I can't compair them. Their Java mica is a darker version of TKB's Dragonfly.. it almost reminds me of the Chameloeon mica, but The Conservatorie has those to so idk.. I have to go througb the silver ones I got, but I am sure ones resembles TKB's Antiqued Silver, and Storm. I'll post some swacthes once I have some time. I just thought I would share my initial findings with you. I do like The Conservatorie's Orange Sorbet.. it'a kind of a nice bright coral with a pink shift to it (frosty).

I also bought their Golden Green, Magic Blue Golden Earth, Salmon Interference, Pink Interference, Luster Blue, Pansy, Ruby Red, watermelon, Strawberry, New Moon Black, Titanium Luster, Ruby Rose, Luster Black, Luster Baby Blue, and Lavender mica.

Good Customers

I just wanted to say a little thank you to everyone whose order didn't arrive after being delivered with USPS. I apologized for everything since the hubby sent them out forgetting about DC# so I wasn't able to track them. Everyone waited patiently, and let me know that they didn't receive their package. Everyone was really understanding and I sincerely appreciate it. It's hard being an indie company because I rely on everything going smooth and as planned in order for my business to grow. I got called into work on my days off delaying their replacement packaged being sent out. I hate feeling like there is nothing I can do to make it better . . . when it rains it pours, and for me that could actually really kill business. I'm just really thankful my customers have taken this graciously. So thanks a bunch! <3

Should I open a destashing shop?

I have a bunch of things for jewelry that I just don't think I'm going to end up using. I have swarovski crystal bicones, butterflies, plus others.

I also have a bunch of products like oils, butter, and stuff from me wanting to create lotions, masks, scrubs, lip products and such. I just don't think that I'll end up using all of them.

I was just wondering if I could some how sell them seeing as etsy allows the selling of supplies...

Should I open up shop?
