Front Page of Etsy for the THIRD TIME!!!!!

WOW, so over the moon(I found that my necklace was an alternative in a treasury yesterday, thought the treasury was just gorgeous!), today was emailed by a lady who told me that my necklace was on the front page this morning!!!! I was totally stunned, I thought because I was an alternative pick, that I wouldn't even feature in the treasury! So by pure luck, I have now been on the FRONT PAGE of Etsy for the THIRD time ♥♥♥
Thank you so much Bionicunicorn You are the best, needless to say I hearted your shop and I love your designs!!

♥ Here's the gorgeous treasury that I was lucky enough to be included in, that ended up being featured on the Etsy front page ♥

My Gorgeous New Etsy Banner

I have to show off my gorgeous new Etsy banner, designed by a lovely lady called Octavia from the Etsy shop, "DreambyDay" I have included pieces of the banner as close-ups to show just how beautiful the design is, I am SO happy with it, as you can see from my jewellery designs, it contains all the things I really LOVE, like butterflies, flowers, birds and of course the GORGEOUS colour PINK!!!! LOL, I'm pretty sure from visiting my store you can tell I love pink! ♥

Octavia was so great, she asked me to name all my favourite things and colours, and from that she came up with a beginning design. From there, we had so much fun, changing background colours, adding and taking out design elements, changing the font for the shop name, etc. She was so patient and so sweet, she tried out every single one of my suggestions and believe me there were many!! At one stage, she came up with 10 different designs, all similar, yet different, so that she could get exactly the design that I was after.

I had so much fun opening up my emails from Octavia, each time was like Christmas, with a new design to check out and critique. The other reason it was so much fun was because nothing was ever too much trouble for her.

When I apologized for being so fussy, she made sure that I knew that was fine, she said she was having so much fun designing it for me, she also said that she felt privileged and honoured, that I had picked her to design the "face" of my Etsy store.

Octavia is going to design a blog header and background for my blog next, then she will be designing business cards for me, I can't wait for this!!! Octavia will design custom banners for anyone who needs one. Her shop is filled with absolutely GORGEOUS art prints, so check out her gorgeous work here. This is my favourite one of her art prints, called "Where clouds are born"

The funny thing is since I have been away from Twitter, Facebook and Blogger, my Etsy sales have taken off again!! What is that saying to me?? I have had 5 sales in 7 days, so I am really wrapped about that, now I can buy more beading supplies!!! The really cool thing is that all the sales were around my birthday, so that made my Bday even better!!
FallenAngelDesigns on Etsy - ♥Beautiful Handmade Jewelry ♥
♥Hello, thanks so much for dropping by! SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT!!! Because the economy is so bad, I am introducing new designs that are MUCH MORE AFFORDABLE, "

Sorry for being absent for SO long!!!!

I have to apologize to all for being absent for so long!! I had a bad dose of the flu that I nearly recovered from, then one by one, my four beautiful children all got assorted varieties of coughs, colds and flus, ( so they needed lots of attention and cuddles from Mummy!) I also got my flu back, so to say I was feeling a bit tired and worn out is a rather huge understatement!!

My gorgeous eldest son, Jordan!!

My two beautiful girls, Kirsty and Tayla!!

The good news is that the three eldest are almost totally better, only the youngest is still sick, he is only sick at night though with a choking croup-like cough, that gets really scary as he has trouble swallowing and breathing while he has the coughing fits, so I am not getting much sleep at the moment. With the amazing resilience of children, he is a bundle of energy during the day!! Why am I not??

Oh so sweet while sleeping!!! My baby boy Codey!

Secrets and Romance Locket Necklace

This is one of my latest designs from my Etsy store, I really love how it turned out. This is truly my very favourite locket from my stash, I adore it and have finally made a design worthy of it to hang from! I wasn't sure if the design would work as I am extremely fussy with having things look just right, but when I put it together, I saw just how beautifully all the different colours and components pulled together to create a really lovely romantic design.

Here is the link to the instore listing to see more views, the price and a full description of all the components used to make it:
The necklace is modeled on the gorgeous mannequin that I bought from another Etsy seller and Twitter friend CrochetGal.

Let me know what you think of my newest design!!
