New Tags and Special Orders

I have made some new romantic gift tags. I embellished a mailing tag with new and vintage papers, ribbons, a scanned copy of a vintage postcard from my collection, and rhinestones. I thought these would be beautiful additions to your Valentine's Day gift or for that special bridal or wedding gift. I will be adding these to my Etsy shop this weekend.

Here are some photos of special orders for Birthday and Valentine's Day gift tags. I thought I would share the photos with you. These were mailed on Thursday this week...thank you ladies for your special orders!

I wanted to mention something about an email from a blogger regarding my gift tags...she stated that she did not appreciate my selling my gift tags on Etsy for "such low prices" and that I was causing some Etsy sellers to lower their prices. Well...I make my tags as a allow for the days that I cannot get out of our home due to illness. I am not selling my tags to make tons of money...only to reimburse me for my supplies to purchase more supplies. I am not going to say I am sorry for your distress...enough said!
Please accept my apology for this last portion of this post to all of my loyal followers. I want to thank all of the ladies that have purchased my gift tags...especially those of you that have been repeat customers! Additionally, I want to thank you for your friendship and your kind comments left on my blog last year.

Hi Sharon~
Your new gift tags are beautiful as are all your tags. And you have the right to sell at what ever you want. I got a good report on my RA Wednesday. Talk to you soon.
Hugs, Pat

So SAD to say that people do get very nasty on blogs and on Etsy if they feel you are imposing on their profits or their business in some way.
That's why I am glad I sell nothing. HA! Sadly a person should be able to do what ever they feel is right...this is AMERICA!
Hang in there girl........
Be blessed, Joyce

Well I for one am most grateful your tags are so affordable, and sooo beautiful too.

I could not afford to have them in my little gift hosp if there were not so reasonable

Thank you Sharon.

I think your tags are just beautiful, and I think people should offer their art for sale at whatever prices they think fair. There are many people, myself included, who are not working right now, and I always appreciate the fact that I might be able to purchase something at a reasonable price. I am not able to afford expensive handmade art or tutorials right now, and I am sorry to read about that unkind email you received. You just keep doing what you do, and have fun and enjoy!
