Cheap home activities

Today I wanted to share some great Activities you can do at home for cheap with your children during their Winter Break. If you are short on cash but want to do something fun with your kids this winter break don't worry there are plenty of things you can do that will cost you very little,as well as some very helpful websites that can help you find cheap things to do in your area. Do you have a zoo close to you? Did you know that most zoo's host a FREE zoo day once to twice a year,I was very happy when I found this out & googled my local zoo unfortunately we already missed the free day but I have high hopes for next year.

Too cold to go outside? Why not make some cookies for scratch,its fun easy & cheap to make(Most dollar stores have everything you need,flour,sugar,ect) it is also one of the best memories your children will keep with them for the rest of their lives.Try mixing it up by adding cinnamon,ginger,chocolate chips, kisses or anything else you have a liking for,Sprinkles & frosting are always fun to mess around with as well, If you have an old plastic container that is flexible you can use a knife to cut out a flower design,peace sign or anything else your creative mind can think of & then take a baggie full of frosting cut the tip of one side of the bag off then hold or fold the pattern under it for cute designs on your cookies(or cakes/cupcakes)

When I was a kid I used to like making gifts to give to friends or family on birthdays,Christmas,ect such as cards,ornaments,boxes & more. You can make them out of practically anything I used to cut the bottom of a soda can out making sure none of the edges were sharp them I would glue two of them together to form a 3d ball & I would glue pictures to them to give to families for their Christmas trees which they all still own.Another activity that is fun & cheap is finding interesting shaped rocks or "pet" rocks & painting them or gluing eyes,ect to them. If you google cheap activities you will find many free sites that are helpful with planning things to do. I hope you enjoyed this blog post! Have a great weekend everyone.

Happy Holidays! Saving Tips for the Holidays

I want to start off by saying HAPPY HOLIDAYS to everyone no matter what December holiday you celebrate,The holidays are always full of such love a lot of people really get into the holiday spirit & lend a helping hand to those less fortunate,co-workers & boss's are happier & friendlier if only everyone could have this kind of attitude year round that would make a huge difference.One thing for sure about the Holiday season is it makes our wallets very thin & makes us all have to think about how to spend our money & get the most out of it.So here are a few idea's for saving Money this Holiday season.



Did you know you can make Ornaments out of Cinnamon & Applesauce?How to steps are easy to find all over the internet,one your "mix" is made you can use a cookie cutter or a knife to create your own ornaments that will last for years to come,this is a Great family craft & its fun for everyone no matter what age you are.Another great way to decorate your house or your Christmas tree is to take some thin fishing wire or string & string popcorn onto it & hang it up,it is cheap & easy to make.Want colored popcorn strings? Food coloring works great.Want to eat it after? Why not make some popcorn or rice crispy balls & wrap them in plastic wrap until its time to eat them,Another cute decorating idea which you can eat is to take a piece of foam in a tree shape then use tooth picks & gumdrops to make a cute little tree for everyone to see & eat.



Short on Money for gifts? If you don't get the newspaper or weekly store ads i would suggest going out to get one there are many stores offering amazing stocking stuffer deals,Micheal's craft store has 200+ stocking stuffers for under $5 everything from toys,to craft kits,Target has a very nice dollar section as well,I myself got a screw driver that came with eight interchangeable head bits & it is also a flash light for my fiances stocking for only $2 found at Target.Want a variety of items? Do you have an Etsy store? why not do some trades with other shops for items you can use for gifts or stocking stuffers? The only thing it will cost you is the amount your item cost to ship,& it will help both you & the other shop owner save money & get some great gifts for the Holidays. I hope EVERYONE has a Happy & Safe holiday season!

Have any Money saving tips of your own? Leave a comment here & You could be included in this post or one of my upcoming blog posts.

Cheri (The Owner of Orglamix) has created a great one of a kind brand that truly does come out Exactly like shown in the pictures, Her shades are Bright & Vibrant or if you prefer a More modern look she has lighter tones & darker tones of every color you can think of.Mineral makeup is good for your skin as well, Most makeup leaves your eyelid with a heavy feeling & make you really aware that your wearing makeup in the case of mineral makeup it is light enough it gives you the "pop" your looking for with your outfit but it is also light enough that you can hardly tell your wearing anything, It last all day & is easy to remove at the end of the day. Cheri's makeup line can be used either as Eye shadow or as Eye liner,No matter how amazing her eye shadow is though we don't want to forget about the other great products she offers she also makes & sells Foundation,blush,makeup brushes,Primer & will soon be coming out with other great items & shades of each There is a color & a foundation for every skin tone, Don't know what shade would be best for you?

Helpful Hints for getting Sales on Etsy!

I know this was posted a while ago but I will be making Small updates to this list since Many Etsy owners still visit here to read my tips New tips will have a RED mark next to them.

They are not in any specific order,some you may not have thought worked but they do, Here not even a year later I have hit 210+ sales & 700+ Hearts on my etsy store,Don't give up hope. You CAN do it too.

Helpful Hints:
1. This hint is more like a rule,Promotion is KEY. You might ask,well what are some ways I can promote my shop?
A.) Myspace,Facebook,Twitter,blogs,ect
B.) Any time you see someone who has a "fill this out to be picked to be featured","free promotion",or anything along the lines of that fill it out,it can't hurt anything
C.) Make business cards,many sellers will include your cards with their orders as a kind of "Please have a look at these shops also" gift package
D.) If possible make a flier or two,hang them up at local community colleges,or malls that get a lot of traffic always remember to make sure it is okay with them first
E.) Family & friends may come of help to you here,If they truly like your products let them wear it around,give them a business card or two for when someone asks about where to buy one
F.) I have found twitter really does work I have not received any sales from it yet(That i know of) but on the days that I do tweet my store traffic goes up by 100-300 views so it does help Boost your store traffic.
G.) Buying AD space can really boost your views,sales,fans & site traffic

2. When listing your items: Make sure to keep an eye on what time of day it is,if its too early not as many people will be on,If listing more than one item space them apart by at least an hour more people will see your shop this way.
A.) Renewing your items, You don't have to go crazy & renew your products ten times a day to get looks,Once maybe twice a week would be just fine relisting isn't the key promotion is.Plus whats the point of spending $3-$6 relisting an item your only going to sell for $5,I have found that Renewing hardly helps at all if your Lucky you will get 2-15 new views

3. Host a giveaway You might be thinking why? Who doesn't love a giveaway,a chance to win a free hand made item? Weather you host a give away on your blog or on the etsy forums it Will draw people to your shop,it will give you an Increase in traffic,it will give you hearts & possibly some sales.
A.) Would you like me to host a giveaway for your store on my blog? Leave a comment here with contact info,Message me on my Etsy or my Email Burningmoonproducts@yahoo.com (Please make title line Blog Giveaway)

4. Make a blog You might have been like me in saying "Ah who needs a blog?", Blogs actually do help bring interest to your shop. If a teenage female is browsing blogs & spots a pretty set of earrings she likes & reads about a give away on etsy but didn't know what etsy was before reading your blog,Then right there it is bringing in out side members to view your products.Always remember you can't expect people to find your blog out of thin air you Also need to visit other blogs if you follow them & comment them most will follow or comment you back.

5. Chat Chat & Chat some more, Yes it sounds silly at first but it works,if you hang out in the chat rooms or the forums you will meet many new friends,& future costumers if they like what they see.You may not think this works but it in fact does I have received a custom order from participating in a thread called "Would you buy from the store above you?",Also check out the Alchemy section for products you might be able to make

6.Photographs are very important to your customers, If they photo distracts them from the item they may want to leave,If you have a very natural color say a pebble or rock pendant I would not suggest placing them on other rocks to photograph them instead try a nice background or maybe grass. If you have a bright product don't make the customer over whelmed by adding a bunch of other colorful items to the photo it will draw their attention away from what you want it to be on.

7.Join a BNR - A BNR stands for Buy n Replace I know your thinking why should I buy to be able to sell? BNR's are actually very helpful let's say you spend $5 on someone's shop then you will get any where from 3-5 points (most uses stars or hearts to show points),Each point is One person who will buy from your shop,so not only will you get the $5 you spent back but you will also get more back from the other sales you have made,ALWAYS remember to look for the newest list of stores to shop from they are usually on the last few pages of the BNR thread chat in the thread you have entered.BNR's will get you sales,hearts,views & make you new friends.* Be sure to talk to a few of the members BEFORE you join some BNR's can really screw you over if your not careful look for a trust worthy bnr*

8.Product Description, Although your Product description Doesn't need to sound like a magazine ad there are a few Key points that should be added to your Item description Always remember to list the measurements of the item no matter what it is,it will have a Height & Length & Width.If your product is shown on a model & its NOT the same item your customer will be getting let them know that the item on the model is for modeling purposes only & they will be getting one that has never been worn.Some of the items other do Not like seeing worn by others before they buy them are Earrings & Hair accessories Usually everything else is fine on a model.

9.Place an Ad or two ,Most blogs will offer Ad space for little or no money if you can find someone who is offering free slots take your chance & Seize it they are usually hard to come by.I find it easiest to post an ad or two on blogs that offer cheap add space,the more followers the better views your shop will get.Want to place an ad on my blog? You can put up your 125 x 125 ad on my blog *Please visit the Promotional Information section for Details,I get over 4100+ Unique visitors a month *. Limited slots open each week please message me for more info.Profits go towards Buying more items for Giveaways on my blog & covering shipping.

****10. When shipping your products,I would suggest getting Delivery Confirmation for your packages that are worth $20 or over this will help both you & your customer feel more secure about getting their items,Tracking Confirmation costs $0.80 But remember you can not get Delivery Confirmation for certain countries.
A.) I have heard that if you know your customers FULL zip code it helps the postal service sort the mail faster & it will help your package reach its destination faster I have just recently began doing this & it seems to help. You can use the following website to find out their full Zip code: http://zip4.usps.com/


***11.Product Review*** ,98% of the time a Product review will bring you Tons of views & some sales to your shop from which ever blog you decide to do a product review with(My blog is Product Review friendly),What is a Product Review? A product review is where you would send a item or items from your shop to Me for me to review,I give my opinion with 100% Honesty about my thoughts on the Product(s) sent in to review.Some of the information that will be included in the Review are: Shipping speed,Packaging (If its in something fancy such as a gift box or cute bag it will be mentioned),The experience I had working with you,Things about the actual item will include Texture,Feel,Smell,Colors(Vibrant,Dull,ect),Materials used & What I think about the item.Some information on your Shop/Site will also be included in the review along with Pictures of the item I reviewed,Extra links to your products. *Products for a Review are supplied from the seller Free of charge*

Looking for cheap,but nice business cards? If you look at vistaprint.com you can get free business cards,address labels,stamps,magnets ect as long as your pay shipping (No it doesn't cost an arm & a leg). I use vistaprint & have not been disappointed yet.

I hope this helps some of you out there,Leave me a comment with your feedback please.Selling on Etsy takes time,patience & money in at the start but it will all pay itself off in the end.

If anyone is interested I like making Promo packs for other stores on Etsy I am Always looking for Business cards & samples to include in these., If you would like me to include your business cards & or samples please contact me either on etsy,my email or my blog & I will let you know where to send them please include "Promo" in the subject title,I use these to pass out at Craft Fairs,With orders,At crafting parties & More its great exposure & helps You gain sales.I wish you ALL the best luck in the world,You all have a great seller in you now its time to release them.

As many of you know I have been posting shops from Etsy for the last Two months for A Christmas/Holiday shopping guide each shop offers something Unique & affordable for you & the special loved ones on your shopping list.These reviews give you an In Depth look at these shops,It will go over how fast they will ship to you,gift wrapping,& over all quality of the work they do.This holiday guide will be followed up by a Goodie bag Giveaway which will contain items from a variety of stores in the guide.Today is the Last review for the guide,Sad but that means that the giveaway you have all been waiting for will be posted on Saturday.The giveaway will have more than 25+ ways to enter Which will give you a nice chance of winning on of the goodie bags.

Today I will be reviewing HeavenBakedSweets.etsy.com who makes Baked goods & Sweets such as Muffins,Cookies,& More.Have a sweet tooth? This shop is for you!

I got to review some of her delicious cookies


Her Package arrived promptly on time & packaged very professinoally in a cute white & pink box marked with her stores logo.Inside each of the three flavors of cookies were packaged separately in clear baggies marked with name & ingredients lists of each cookie.These cookies tasted amazing I got to try Andes Creme de Menthe Chunk Cookies,Simply Snickerdoodle ,&
Chocolate Spice,They were so soft & just melted in your mouth you would have to try them to know the joy they bring haha.They would make a perfect gift for anyone,of any age on your list, My favorite was the Andes Creme de Menthe Chunk Cookies it didn't have an over powering mint flavor like some treats do cut had just enough to give you that cool winter feeling in your mouth,My fiances favorite was Chocolate spice at first I wasn't too sure how a mixture of spices inside of a cookie would taste but they were very sweet with a hint of Cinnamon & My almost one year old daughter loved them all.We are looking forward to buying from this seller in the future.

Second I will be reviewing FirstLightGlass.etsy.com Who makes Pendants,Trinket dishes,Cheese cutters & More

I got to review:


Package arrived fast,& the trinket dish was wrapped safely so that no harm would come to the little trinket dish. Dish is absolutely adorable perfect for an office desk,bath room counter,dresser top or any other place you can think to stick it.It has actually come in amazingly helpful in my craft area I use it to sort out beads,keep pieces I am working on on it & More. But they offer more than just trinket dishes they also offer Pendants,Earrings,Cheese cutting boards & More.This shop offers some great gifts for mom,dad,aunts,uncles & anyone else who enjoys little trinkets or cheese,Plan on buying one of those meat & cheese gift baskets? This would match perfectly with it.If you put BM in note to seller they will refund you 10% of your purchase

Third I will be reviewing KhoKreative.etsy.com Who makes Handmade photo cards & custom designs

I got to review:


Her packaged arrived relatively quick,Bubble mailer was marked with all appropriate tags so that the mail person(s) would know not to bend it.Inside of the bubble mailer the Thank you cards were all placed safely inside of a protective plastic sheet so that they would stay safe during their journey to their new home.Her Cards look amazing they are very durable & come with matching envelopes.These would be great to send after a baby shower,with your orders or any other occasion you need a thank you card for.If you stop by her shop I am sure you will find a card set you will fall in love with.

Since it is November already & I would like to put up the giveaway early enough for everyone to have a chance to enter I will be doing double & Tripple feature posts. Keep an eye out for discount codes & Codes for freebies. We are getting VERY close to the date of the Big Giveaway only a few more reviews to go!

Today in Honor of our last giveaway of $45 worth of beautiful jewelry (Last day to enter is November 13th Click here To Enter I will be reviewing Three shops that offer some very unique jewelry.

First I will be reviewing tesorojewelry.etsy.com Who makes beautiful rings,bracelets,necklaces & earrings.

Here is what I got to review:


Packaged arrived pretty fast & was well packaged,She does a great job with communication to make sure you get a ring that fits your finger, This ring is beautifully made & does not irritate the skin.It is just enough "POW" to give your out fit a bit of flare but not enough to draw those "what was she thinking" looks, After you put it on you can't even tell your wearing the ring it isn't bulky at all which is a major plus. Want a custom wire wrapped ring? This is the place to go.

Second I will be Reviewing jessejanes.etsy.com She makes tons of scrabble pendants,key chains,& bobby pins & can do custom work.

Here is what I got to review:

*Note I got an orange one just like this but this was too gorgeous not to post here

I got this extremely fast & it was packaged so nothing would smash the adorable little pendant waiting inside.Pendant looks great,Thin line of diamond glaze no extra on the sides,all edges are smooth & there are no bubbles or bumps.Pendant came on a nice sterling silver ball chain which is a plus for those who don't have anything to put their pendants on.Pendants are professionally put together & look nice would make the perfect gift for anyone on your list.use Promo Code "HOLIDAY09" for a 15% off discount on Your total order before shipping

Third I bring you a very unique shop with a very sweet shop owner, kmcgiveron.etsy.com

I got to review:

*The one above is my favorite from their store I got to review their cracked bark pendant & flower power

Package arrived fast,each pendant was packaged & wrapped all by itself for protection.Pendants are adorable thick enough that if dropped they won't break.Pendants are very well made & have a very nice color to them.Pendants easily fit onto any type of chain or cord you might have & has a small hole for if you want to put a larger ring on it to hang off of a larger chain.Looking for a cute unique pendant? Come have a look at this shop it is great all different colors & shapes for you to choose from.

Halloween Fun! & A History

It is once again that time to take a short break from our very useful,& detailed Holiday shopping guide made to help you with your holiday shopping! Today we will be Celebrating a little of Halloween,My personal favorite Holiday Remember at the end two lucky winners will get One big goodie bag each full of gifts from many shops,Speaking of giveaways please dont forget to Enter the giveaway I have going on now only 5 more days to enter,Click Here to Enter

A little History on Halloween
We all now call October 31st Halloween that is what we have known it as for years & years,but have you ever thought about if it was always called Halloween or how it all started? It wasn't always about costumes & candy, Halloween has origins in the ancient Celtic festival known as Samhain.The festival of Samhain celebrates the end of the "lighter half" of the year and beginning of the "darker half",& is sometimes regarded as the "Celtic New Year" The celebration has some elements of a festival of the dead. The ancient Gaels believed that the border between this world & the Otherworld became thin on Samhain, allowing spirits (both harmless and harmful) to pass through.The family's ancestors were honored & invited home whilst harmful spirits were warded off. It is believed that the need to ward off harmful spirits led to the wearing of costumes & masks. Their purpose was to disguise oneself as a harmful spirit & thus avoid harm.Bonfires were a large part in celebration during this time,building two bonfires next to each other & then walking between the two was believed to "cleanse" you.

Now onto a bit of Halloween fun,I am in a lovely BNR (Click here to visit) Where we play games,have scavenger hunts & More. Recently we did a Halloween version of Secret Santa called "Secret Ghouls" where those who wanted to be part of it signed up & got assigned a partner to send a gift to. I received Mine yesterday from my BNR member PnsNNedls.etsy.com I received this very cute hand painted Skull
If you would like to join in the fun & get some awesome gifts join our BNR by clicking the link above.

Pumpkin Carving:
he American tradition of carving pumpkins preceded the Great Famine period of Irish immigration & was originally associated with harvest time in general, not becoming specifically associated with Halloween until the mid-to-late 1800s.It is also said the Jack o lantern was carved & placed on door steps to light the way home for parted loved ones,whos spirit could visit home on All Hallows Eve

My family & I went out this week & bought our pumpkins for carving This is how they turned out:

From Left to right: My Daughters (we carved it for her this is her first Halloween),My fiances, & Mine

Here is what I got to review:



I actually reviewed one very similar to this but due to my camera not doing what I would like it to,I am using a photo of one of her other Moss gardens.Package arrived in two days,& was packaged neatly with a little note on top,The jar had plenty of bubble wrap around it,it has its own little military defense system,The moss garden itself looks great I have always loved the way moss felt & looked so this review truly tickled my heart,I have one with a cute little Japanese bridge in it.Love plants? Is it hard for you to keep your plants alive? I would Highly suggest buying one of these it only needs to be watered once every 2-3 weeks & grows best in indirect sunlight, Her moss gardens are inexpensive & a unique gift.

Second I will be reviewing jennuinecandles.etsy.com She makes amazing scented candles that are 100% Palm wax

Here is what I got to review:


Package arrived within two days,it was packaged nicely so that the candle would not break during the shipment.Package right away smelled amazing.Candle looked great,the wax looks pretty & crystallized,upon opening I was hit with a wonderful berry explosion smell.When lit candle fills your home with its unique & wonderful scent,Instead of being like normal candles that tend to look nasty once you burn them it goes back to how it originally look which is a major plus for being a living room candle. All candle lovers should check out this shop & its wonderful candles available in many scents,shapes & colors.

-Notice: If you are waiting to be featured on the gift guide please be patient there is a small line I only post every 2-3 days to make sure everyone gets the same amount of exposure.

Photo arrived quickly,In a cute little photo protector sheet inside of two card board pieces,She also wrote "Please do not bend" on her package that's a plus for her from me.Her photo compliments my living room very nicely it fits in with the other photo's & posters I have but it "Pops" out and says "Hey Look at how pretty I am",She has quite a few photo's listed at her site If I could I would buy more from both shops on my review.She also sells Book marks with her photo's on it,perfect for your loved ones that enjoy reading & fancy photography.I would recommend this store to anyone looking for a great photo to accent their walls with.

I would also like to thank TuranLoch.etsy.com For the blog button she made for all of those who are on my Christmas Shopping Guide lets give her a big thumbs up!
