New Product Line – Foldable, Portable Purse Hangers!

by Jennifer Tang of  MaJenta Designs

TIRED of going to a restaurant or bar and having your purse taking up half your seat? or risk being knocked off the back of your chair? or worse yet – sitting on the dirty floor?! Then you’ll really love my new product line of Foldable, Portable Purse Hooks!

I was so excited to put these to use when I went for a night out on the town, and I can attest that they really do wonders!  After a long day at work, my friends wanted to hit up a bar, but the only table left was a tall standing table.  Well, its never fun to be standing around, with your stuffy coat on, and heavy purse wedged into your arm pit and weighing down your shoulder.

Then I realized that I had a handy dandy “Foldable, Portable Purse hook” inside my purse, and viola!  I was able to hang my very heavy purse (with a heavy academic textbook inside) AS WELL AS my coat too!  Heart Hanger

I’m so excited to have these products available at MaJenta Designs Etsy shop as well as soon to be available at my upcoming shows!These convenient little hangers will make their debut at the:

Wow I cant believe it, but I actually made the front page of Etsy! 🙂   Thank you to the person who took the time to take this screen shot of the page, as well as the other blog that lists the names of sellers who’ve made the front page, or else I would have never known!  What more fitting for the image that they used, than none other than one of my Lucky Koi fish pendants, which are my most popular items!

Photo of Paradise – Featured

My “Sail Off to Paradise” 8×10 photographic print has been featured in an Etsy treasury!

This photo was taken in Phuket, Thailand, one of the areas that got hit the hardest during the tragic Tsunami of 2004.  This photo was taken in Phuket almost exactly a year later, with its resilient community still thriving.  The beaches in Thailand are lined with soft white sand, warm ocean breezes, and crystal clear aqua tinted water – truly paradise!

This print can be purchased at my eboutique at www.majentadesigns.etsy.com.  The photo is listed here http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=7887703 but feel free to browse all my other items as I sell handmade jewelry and houseware as well!

My First Notecards Sale!

My Etsy shop is quite the eclectic mix of things for sale, from jewelry to household items to photographic prints to notecards. I havent had any success in selling my photo notecards, that is until yesterday! One lucky buyer swooped up 3 of my notecards yesterday! I was so happy!

These photographs all have some great stories behind them. The first 2 photos are taken in South Korea, where I got a Fulbright Grant to teach English and be a cultural ambassador for a year. The first photo is of a Buddhist temple in Gwangju, South Korea during autumn. I just love the vibrant colors of the building against the brightly colored leaves too. The second is of Naijangsan in South Korea, an area famous for people to flock to during Autumn to check out the Japanese maples. And finally, the last one is Springtime at my Alma Mater, Mount Holyoke College. A restful spot for someone to recline and nap out on the green or bring their books out to study.

OPINIONS: I wonder if its worth it to try to relist these items or not, if you’re reading this, please let me know!

SALE: Also, today is the LAST DAY of my 20% off sale! so please check out the rest of my Etsy for more items! http://majentadesigns.etsy.com
