It's been a good week for me and I hope for you all as well!  I had four sales this week on Etsy so  I would like to share, what I feel is a helpful tip, if you are a seller on Etsy.  I have discovered that I have more traffic and more sales now that I have over 200 items.  I also share an item from my store, each day, to Facebook, Twitter & Tumblr.
Just a couple of cards I listed this week

Some cards I made that were for my first custom order on Etsy


Now for a few sales I received in my inbox that I will share with you in case you didn't know or receive any:0)

Plans for the weekend are hopefully taking some pictures outside.  I prefer to take pictures of my cards and stuff outside.  They just look much better in my honest opinion.

Wash the car??  Maybe

Read?   I'm currently reading a really good book In The Stillness by Andrea Randall

Craft? But of course!

I also have a Donald Duck cross stitch that I need to wash and list on Etsy as well.

Sunday is Easter of course so I will be spending the day with family and enjoying some good food!

How about you?  What are your plans?

I hope you all have a great weekend and a wonderful Easter

~This Week Crafts N Laughs is featuring F H Gold Designs~03/21/16

Each Monday on Crafts N Laughs, I would like to introduce and feature a new Artist/Designer/Crafter.

This week I am featuring F. H. Gold Designs.  The designer/crafter is a very good friend of mine and she is very talented too.  Her designs and artwork contain a variety of things such as wool felt ornaments, metal stamped bookmarks and glass sun catchers.  Like myself she enjoys making a variety of things.

I have listed the links to her Etsy store below as well as her Facebook page and Twitter.  If you have time please stop by and check out her lovely designs.  I will share a few of her items below as well.

I have several things she has made such as necklaces, a bracelet and an ornament.  I adore them all.  I have also given her ornaments as gifts and they were well received with huge admiration.  She makes beautiful things and you can certainly tell by the quality of her work.

Here are just a few of her items. 

Thank you for stopping by my blog and I hope you enjoy meeting new artists/crafters each week.

If you have any questions for me or the owner of F H Gold Designs please don't hesitate to contact us.


Last but not least your Monday Funny

~Happy Friday & Welcome to Crafts N Laughs~

Hello and welcome to my new craft blog!  After tossing around the idea of creating a craft blog for a while, I decided to actually do it!  I am very excited and I hope to have a lot of fun because life is too short and laughter is good for the soul!! 
I do hope you find this fun, helpful and informative.  I welcome all crafters, not just limited to what I enjoy.  I also welcome any ideas, websites, sellers, blogs, and virtually anything craft related that you enjoy and want to share with others.
Please feel free to sign up for my newsletter on the top left.  My goal is to send out at least two emails a week so that you are not bombarded and maybe on Holidays.  One on Monday and one on Friday. 
This is my very first post.  I won't go into my story because I already have and you can read it here.  I am still working on the design of my blog so there will be changes made along the way.  I do this all myself and have learned that it takes a lot time, patience and lots of tweaking.

Starting Monday the 21st I will have my first feature of another crafter and seller on Etsy.  I am very excited about this and plan to feature a new artist/designer/crafter each week.  If you are a crafter and sell anywhere drop me an email and I will do my best to schedule you and your site.  I will have a calendar to keep track of all of this lol.  I am human, make mistakes and get very busy at times.  I also work full time but blogging is something I really enjoy doing.  I also love to help others and hopefully this will.

If you have any questions or comments please leave them below.  I can be found virtually anywhere lol.  Facebook, Twitter, Instagram well you get the idea.

I look forward to meeting new people and sharing with the world.

Thank you for visiting and taking the time to read all of my jibber jabber.  Please say hello and introduce yourself below :) 


This picture made me laugh!!  Now I realize we all have a different sense of humor but I sure hope that I can make you laugh at some point or another.
