Retiring from out of state cons in 2014

Journal Entry: Tue Sep 3, 2013, 7:50 AM
My last out of state convention will be Nekocon in Hampton Roads, Virginia on Halloween weekend 2013.  I know most of you look forward to seeing my stuff in person and buying things I don't list in my Etsy shop, and for that I apologize.  My life has taken on new roles: active PTA mom, new PT job and focusing on my Etsy store with new items and quicker ship times!

I will still be trying for in state conventions:

Otakon while it is still in Baltimore, MD 
MAGFest in National Harbor, MD 
Tigercon at Towson University - Towson, MD (which is FREE btw!)

I thank each and every one of you that visited me during cons in MA, NY, NJ, OH, and VA.  I won't completely eliminate them forever and may take up a convention if offered a guest spot, but alas crafters usually aren't invited as guests.  I will be sure to keep you updated on Etsy sales and promos. Also, be sure to check out my shops via SHOP NOW for awesome new items coming soon!

Shipping Increases

Journal Entry: Tue Jan 22, 2013, 8:18 AM
Notice to All Customers: Shipping rates for USPS have increased for 2013.

Domestic shipping increased slightly but I am keeping the costs the same for US customers. In some instances it has been reduced.

International prices have increased dramatically, at least 50% to all countries including Canada. In an effort to keep the cost low I have reduced the cost of some items in my shop and for the smaller items the "With Another Item" price is $0! This way if you buy multiple items the cost of shipping does not increase.

I know shipping costs seem high but it is across the board. With these increases my supply increases also jumped but I am keeping my item prices the same. I thank you for all of your business in the new year!

My Dad!

Journal Entry: Sun Jan 20, 2013, 5:00 PM
Signal Boost Appreciated: kellyskeychains.tumblr.com/pos…

Many of you may know that my dad, 58, lost his job in August 2012 due to his company closing. He had that job for 40 years. He still has not been able to find employment even though he has applied to at least 100 places since then, probably much much more.

Last night someone broke into my father's truck and stole all the tools he had in there. I know that may not sound like much but tools are expensive and if it had not been for me needing his help earlier in the week his tools wouldn't even have been there to begin with. I feel at fault.

All of my Storenvy and Etsy purchases from 1/20 - 1/22 will go towards buying some new tools for my dad. I can't replace them all but I can replace some of them. I am also be taking donations.

>>kellyskeychains.com<<

Donators who will be included on the card:
Kathleen
Pickled In Time - Aisha
Sara
Scott
Bianca
Etienne
Che
Bethany
Roberto
Soda*Pop*Kidz

If you would like your name left off this list or the card, please let me know.

My shop has reopened!

ETSY: egyptianruin.etsy.com

Thanks to everyone for a successful holiday season!  I was so busy with orders during December and prepping for two conventions that I might have appeared to drop off the face of the planet.  I did.  At the end of MAGFest (which was fantastic) I got a really bad sinus and ear infection so it took me a bit to recover! But I am back.  I will be listing some new stuff in my shop this week that is already made and ready to purchase.

Breast Cancer Benefit and Etsy News

As part of the Breast Cancer Benefit and Silent Auction I am making a Under the Sea gift basket with a myriad of my Octopus stuff including plush, wallet, jewelry, etc. to raise money for the cause and for a patient who was diagnosed with the disease and needs surgery.

I am trying to get two tickets to the National Aquarium in Baltimore to include in the basket. However they are $30 a piece. I don't have that kind of money right now.

I have collected $25 out of the $60 needed. Every dollar counts! My PayPal is kellyskeychains [at] gmail.com be sure to mark the item as donation. I also accept cash but I have to get it before Friday so I can purchase the tickets online for the basket.

Back from Otakon!

Journal Entry: Mon Jul 30, 2012, 9:15 AM
Back from Otakon and I am exhausted!  I am going to be working on photos this week once my camera is returned safely to me - it was broken and I had to send it out for repairs.  My shop should open on Wednesday pending no problems arise between now and then.

I will also be sending out my questionnaires for Kickstarter to fulfill those items! Tons of boxes in my house, lol.

My husband was sick during Otakon so I had to do a good deal of it by myself.  Thanks to my friends "Chair" and Dani for watching my table while I had to potty or run an errand.

Thanks to all the wonderful people who came by to visit me and shop.  You guys make my con experiences wonderful.  All my art pieces sold in the art show and two people cam by to thank me in person for making those items!
