What's new on Etsy - my latest custom orders

Lately I've had the chance to work on some really fun Etsy orders. At least 1/3 of my orders are custom orders and I really enjoy the process of working with customers to create something unique. Here are some photos of some of my most recent custom orders....

Decorative cupcake toppers in custom colors that I made for a 1st birthday party. Also made a cake topper garland, a full length garland, and high chair garland.

Ribbon wands made out of mylar and tissue paper (using wooden skewers), and a cake topper garland made out of lace and tulle for an upcoming wedding. The bride (who is also a friend of mine from middle school) also ordered custom chair garlands in tulle and lace.

Red, white and blue tissue paper and mylar tassel garland for an "election themed" baby gender reveal party. Garland was ordered by a friend and fellow Making Things Happen alum, Amber Veatch, of Amber Veatch Designs. Amber is a really talented wedding/event decorator and stylist from Florida. You can see photos from her party along with the results of the election on her blog.

If you want some Sparkle Motion Decor in your life....

This summer has been pretty busy - I've been preparing for my first styled shoot, (as in the first I am 100% styling and not just providing decorations for), and I have two weddings I am creating all of the decorations for. Because of all of this work going on, I've had to put my Etsy shop in vacation mode for periods of time  - in fact its in vacation mode right now and will reopen on July 22.

So if you want to order from my Sparkle Motion Decor Etsy shop, but its in vacation mode, here's what you can do....

  • For non-custom orders - Message me on Etsy or email me at SparkleMotionDecor@gmail.com. Some of the items I sell are already made and can be shipped right away. I can always re-open my shop so you can place an order.
  • For custom orders or larger orders (such as 24-48 drink stirrers or picks, multiple garlands, etc.) - Again, you can message me on Etsy or email me. Turnaround time will be anywhere from 1-3 weeks, plus shipping.
  • For custom wedding or party decorations - I will be able to work on a limited number of parties and a wedding this winter so message me via Etsy or email me if you want Sparkle Motion Decor to plan and create decorations for you!

Excuses, excuses, excuses!

Do you see this photo here? It shows some of the new items I posed on Etsy a week or two ago. Over the weekend half of what you see here was purchased (and then some!).

So I've been spending all my free time putting together this large order so that I can ship it tomorrow! And that's one of the many reasons why I haven't had a chance to update the blog this week.

Also I spent the weekend in Philadelphia with my husband. We both grew up outside of Philadelphia, and I lived there for awhile....so we go there a lot! We enjoyed a romantic night out on Sunday at one of my favorite restaurants, Little Fish. They have a 4-course prix fixe menu on Sunday nights that is only $33. And it's a BYOB. Probably one of the best meal deals around! We stayed in a really cool hotel that night called The Monaco....ooh and before all that we did some shopping at a mid-century furniture outlet and got a beautiful new little lounge chair.

So not a lot of time to blog.

But expect some new posts soon....including a few new DIY tutorials!

For now I will leave you with a photo from my mid-century shopping trip. These two chairs were $300 - for both chairs! Crazy right?
