Customers, New and Old

AB1A875A-F755-4580-AB62-C79E684E66A0It thrills my heart when I get an order, but an order from a previous customer makes my heart do the wave!! Even though I know my pieces are worthy, and wear well, to see repeat customers is a great ego booster. Today I shipped 6 Graduation Key Chains to a previous customer. It is my customers that keep my little business going. Thank you to every one. I am blessed!

Long Time!

long-time-no-postHello Pretties,

I cannot believe it has been so long since I have posted on this Blog. I am terribly sorry for being such a slug. I do value my blog readers and their comments. Today, to start I have spent the morning sprucing up my site.

Life has been very busy, but without my friends and customers my creativity would not matter.

Here in Maine I was thinking we were headed towards spring, only to be pummeled by three Nor’easters in the past couple of weeks and another possibly next week.

I was/am so looking forward to Spring, sunshine, the beaches, farrmer’s markets, cruise ships, selling outside, and meeting people,sounds so wonderful right now.


Finding the Cure

As many of you know my grandgirl Kaitlyn is 11 years old and has Crohn’s Disease. She was diagnosed in Jan 2016 after a substantial time of illness. Seeing her suffer as this disease ravages her tiny body cuts me to the core. She is my why The cure can not be found soon enough. I have created this key chain in honor of Kaitlyn and will donate 100% of the proceeds from the sales to Cure for IBD funding Crohn’s and Colitis Research. This key chain can be ordered in my Etsy shop.

I believe every sale get us one step closer to a cure. Please help if you can.


Festivals, Cruise Ships and Craft Fairs and Etsy

Glam Girls Pretties is having a fun profitable summer. From Festivals and craft fairs, farmers Markets and Cruise Ships.

Craft Fair Photo (2)My new products for sale this year are hand stamped charms, my customers can create their very own unique charm necklace or bracelet. They can choose the hand stamped charm they would like, add accent charms, beads and necklace to put them on.

My opinion so far is that people love them. I am still adding more fall craft fairs to my growing list.

I do still sell finished jewelry at my events for anyone who is not into creating a custom piece.IMG_5483


All the while filling orders from my Etsy Shop.

I have to say Summer has flown by so quickly, I swear I blinked and that was that!

Keepsakes Can Mean So Much

img_3530I love with all my heart all of my precious keepsakes given to me by special family members and fabulous friends. You know keepsakes do not have to be some costly gift to be special to you.

In my studio I have pieces of paper some with just scribbles of crayon or markers, many pictures of me drawn by some of my favorite little people.. Seeing them there makes me smile. I remember the nature of one of my gifts. My grandgirl was about 4 before she could write very well and she made me a Mothers Days card, with her mothers help, that says #G’ma you are a great women!” the best part was she said to her mother that will make G’ma laugh, she knew it would. It still cracks me up when I sew it!

Sweet gifts from my man, items from the heart that reminded him of me, now remind me of him. I love them find it difficult to throw away his beautiful cards.

Sweet gifts from my man, items from the heart that reminded him of me, now remind me of him. I love them some of the smaller ones more than the larger. I find it difficult to throw away his beautiful cards.

I have a set of Christmas Ornaments given to me by one of my closest friends and they mean the world to me, and are one of my prized possessions. Every year when I get them out I smile and think of her and my life at the time she gave them to me. So heart warming!

I have a recent keepsake created and given to me by a sweet redhead of Lucy and Ethel, which represents her and I.

A charm bracelet from my mom and dad.

I think you get the point, but I could continue typing all day. Its not about the cost its about the love that goes into finding just the right item.

I definitely would love everyone to purchase from Glam Girls Pretties, there are many items there that make great keepsakes. But more than that, this holiday season I would love to see people really give heart felt meaningful gifts!




Bon Voyage

cruise shipI miss the cruise ships already!

I never thought I would miss going in to sell to tourists and cruise ship passengers so much. I am missing the social-ness of it.

Seriously I got to meet so many interesting people and got to know and become friends with some awesome artisans.

My new focus will be to concentrate on getting into some shops around the city and possibly elsewhere and of course my Etsy Shop!
