A new year has already started and I am so ready to put 2022 behind me! But it seems the cycle never ends and January means back to end of year bookkeeping, taking inventory and such. Counting all the trillions of little items for inventory is not my favorite task but has to be done. I am quite strange though as I have taken all the accounting courses and quite enjoy it. I just find it difficult to switch back and forth between that and my creativity in the studio. It is like a struggle that goes on between the right side and left side of my brain. So I will forge ahead and wrap up the paperwork as quick as possible so I can go back to the fun side of life!
Unlike a New Year's resolution, I have instead been contemplating on what my focus should be for this year and I feel I have a good plan. I have already started off by implementing a few changes with more to come later.
Eight years ago I created my first interchangeable "snap" jewelry pieces! This idea was a real game changer for me and I still love the whole concept. Since then, I have expanded my collection a great deal and I plan to continue on and still make it my main focus.
I published my "Snap Decisions" tutorial back in 2015 which I since had for sale -- that is until now. It is no longer for sale -- that is as an individual lesson. It is now included (at no charge) with the purchase of my new "Starter Packs
". These starter packs include a wide range of snaps and accessories (items may vary slightly from the photos) that will jumpstart your creativity and hopefully to have fun creating your own original designs!
Here is how it works:
- a wide range of snaps and snap accessories.
- Part 1 of my tutorial (PDF format)
A total value of $75+ for only $60 Cdn. (plus shipping and taxes if applicable)
- a large supply of snaps and snap accessories
- Parts 1 & 2 of my tutorial (PDF format)
- Bonus: Your own personal coupon code for future discounts from our DIY Snap & Jewelry supplies. (Note: Coupon code must be used at least once a year in order to keep it activated).
A total value of $120+ for only $95 Cdn (plus shipping and taxes if applicable)
The tutorial(s) that is included with your starter pack will be sent out separately as a PDF file directly to the e-mail address provided. This will give you a head start to read it through and familiarize yourself before your snaps arrive in the mail.
These packs are a lot of fun and provide a sampling of many items to not only get you started but also get a feel for any items you might want to make more of in the future.
Personal Coupon Code
So what is the personal coupon code? This is included only with the Starter Pack 2 -- The larger pack that includes both of parts 1 & 2 of my Snap Decisions tutorial. It is your own personalized code (not to be shared with anyone else) for a 25% discount on any future supplies from our online store. This is a great saving as most of the items in those categories are already at bulk prices.
The coupon code does not expire, that is, as long as it is used at least once a year. The year starts from your date of purchase.
If you do already have a coupon code and it has expired, then you can purchase the starter pack 2 and your code will be reactivated again. You will also receive the starter pack of snaps and snap accessories included.
And now, one more announcement:
I have created a Facebook Group:
This is a group that I am just now starting and you can click on the link above to join. I hope it will be of some help to those who could use some inspiration as well as more tips and tricks on creating your own interchangeable snap jewelry. Hopefully I will get to meet up with many of you there.
