It is the logo I chose for Craftego. I like using the words "with heart and hand" in that order so it would sound similar to "with heart in hand" as that is how this creator rolls.

Let me start by wishing all, happy new year. It’s never too late to wish happiness.
Craftego has had a slow new year. Not with sales, as I just made one and that is pretty good considering how little I still have for sale in the shop. I have only created one new necklace in the past month. It is one beautifully awesome and sparkly new necklace, if I do say so myself. I titled it ‘rainstorm.’ However, I wasn't well and I don’t work on jewelry when I don’t feel good because I’m a bit of a germ-a-phobe. I won’t send out anything I wouldn't want to get.
Living with lupus can do that to you. Not to mention my past work as an infant care-giver, where learning about spreading germs was a requirement. So, considering I was sick, on and off, for over two weeks. I’m proud of what I've created. This brings me to the reason I haven’t blogged much lately. Simply put, I was too sick to think, much less type at the very bright, head-ache triggering, computer. At least that is how it has seemed for the last month or so.
Now for the good news; you will be able to find plenty of new items suitable for Valentine’s Day gifts or treats for yourself by the end of the week. I have created a section in the store for all items suitable for Valentine’s Day, either because of the heart décor, or pink and or red hues. I encourage viewing the other three pages of items in our shop too.
I have a great shamrock design I expect to have up for sale with a few other items by the end of the month. Plus, I am hopeful that my beer mug design will work out. I think for the beer mug idea I will make some mugs with green beer (in honor of St. Patrick’s Day) as well as the normal shade of beer.
For some extra good news, I want to share the coupon code to all of you who read this blog. When you go to Craftego's Shop you will be able to get a 25% discount when you use coupon code: ILIKECRAFTEGO25
The last thing is something I’m pretty excited to share with you. I just started another form of newsletter that may even contain secret codes that only you will see. So consider signing up for Craftego News by clicking on this link: Craftego News Subscription Sign Up

Happy December everyone! I wish each one of you a good health and happiness throughout the New Year!
So, rather than beat myself up about it (as some things are out of our control). I have already started working on items for upcoming calendar events, such as, Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day and even Easter. If you have any other suggestions feel free to send me a note. Message Craftego on Etsy Plus, I've added a few new items.
For some good news I exceeded 2000 visits to my shop last month and am still getting many admirers on the items I do have listed. I believe as I build my inventory, my number of sales will also grow. Here’s a link to the positive feedback I received, as of today. Craftego's Feedback on Etsy It doesn’t take much to make you feel good about yourself, so the feedback also serves as a real motivational boost. Thank you to all my supporters. You Rock!

I made a goal in October to reach at least 1000 visits to the shop www.craftego.etsy.com. And thanks to all of you, I did it!
Now I am going make you aware of new and upcoming items and deals. First, you will notice on Craftego’s front page the adorable Santa Claus earrings and necklaces you can now purchase. Please note you can choose your eye color in the variations tab. I hope you love them as much as I do. I am currently working on a Santa Clause barrette which is much more intricate; I am already feeling very proud of it. I am also working on more items that are made of fall colors. I feel confident I will be able to teach myself to make the Star of David for Hanukkah, and maybe pilgrim hats or something like that for Thanksgiving. Only time will tell.
Plus, if you’re looking for something specific it never hurts to try to describe it, or draw it, and I’ll do my best to make it. I’ll let you know when it is done, and if you like it you can buy it, and if you don’t I will simply keep it up for sale. If I don’t think I can even come close to your description, I will tell you right away.
I welcome any suggestions or ideas you may have to share. You can contact me through www.craftego.etsy.com, you can leave a comment on this blog, or you can use any of the following avenues.
