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!

New Item — Pop-up Invitation Cards

PLEASE VOTE:  I entered this invitation as part of the Etsy Wedding Challenge which is  sponsored by the Jetteam, EstyGreetings, and EstyFAST.  Please vote for my item (#5) at http://www.etsyfast.com/blog/?p=65

DESCRIPTION:  This accordion popup booklet makes a perfect invitation card or a wedding party favor! Simply untie the ribbon and it unfolds into a 6″x6″ display.  I used traditional Japanese handmade paper, picking this particular design not only to match the bride’s color scheme, but also the colors red and gold are auspicious colors of good luck and good fortune which are always used in Chinese wedding decorations. Cranes are also symbolic of peace, happiness, and longevity, as well as are often used in Asian weddings because it is said that cranes mate for life and are devoted to their partners in all seasons.
