Spring Desires

I am taking a break from listing...phew! I have decided to peruse some of my faborite shops on Etsy, and have found some delightful pieces I am drooling over!

The Becky Cosmetic Case

This lovely cosmetic case is made by by MaryJMaalouf. I search her page often, and am always inspired by her beautiful handbags, and by the gorgeous colors she selects.

Blueberry Patch Soap with Sweet Almond Oil and Shea Butter

DressGreen has amazing handmade skin care products. I actually have several of their bath soaps, and adore them!

K I N D L Y. E A R T H... Emerald green quartz and gold earrings

Lastly, I am drawn to these gorgeous earrings by CrowandIris. Gorgeous gorgeous color, perfect for the spring.

Spring Creations

You may be aware, the last 6 months of my life has been turned upside down (in a good way). My family sold our house and moved in with my brother, aaah:), while we waited for our new house to be built. That means that I no longer had an office space, and was trying to keep on top of Fable Bay orders, and to continue to create. That was the hardest part. My brothers house was 20 miles from my kids' school, and I drive a gas guzzling monster. So most of my days were spend driving them to school, and waiting....not exactly delightful. This meant that creating was done in late evenings, if I had the energy for it, and photographs were taken about every other weekend. I listed very very little during that time. I let a whole lot of old pieces expire, and I had a few burnout moments, where I considered whether I wanted to keep doing this.

Ultimately, the answer was YES, I love being creative, and I adore making things with my hands, especially beautiful things. We moved into our house about a month ago, and in the last month I have been able to build my office space, and get myself setup. I still have a long way to go before I am fully used to the place, but already, I feel like my life is getting back on track.

Long story short, expect new things from Fable Bay! I have been working like crazy, and am listing often now! in the same respect, expect things that have been in the shop for a while, to go bye bye:) once they sell, or expire, some of these long term items will not be returning.

Tomorrow I am updating (although i did list a couple today, i just couldn't wait:))
