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:

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.
