Happy Birthday Princesses

Hello All,

My friend Jean needed a birthday card for her 10 year old granddaughter. She told me that she loved purple and princesses things. So as a thank you for allowing me set up my shop at their annual Holiday Boutique this year. I made her this for granddaughter.

If your reading this thanks again Jean!

 

 

Snow Globe Christmas Tree

Hello All,

Well we are getting ever closer to Christmas and I keep thinking about snow. Since it really doesn’t snow in California unless you drive to some snowy forsaken mountain that has more rock then snow, it really doesn’t really count.   So to cheer me up I made myself a little snow globe card.

I’m sure some of you would say that snow is overrated and it not as fun when the pipes freeze. However, something about the cold snow brings back warm memories of playing on a giant inflated tire going down a slippery and dangers hillside with my younger sister Veronica.  Trudging up that mound with a heavy tire seemed like hours just to get a few seconds of bliss of untold speed.  Hearing my little sister shriek as we hit the snow-white bank made me want to do it all over again.

Aww when life was simple!

3D Snowflake Card

Hello All,

This is not a new idea of course; we all learn how to make 3D snowflakes in grade school with construction paper and glue.  Nevertheless, just because we learn something as children doesn’t mean we shouldn’t bring out the kids in use.  So I dug out my inner kid and pulled out this lovely idea and added my own grown up touches.

Enjoy!

Moving Shop on to Etsy

Hello,

I am so sorry all! Well its looks like my webmaster was not able to fix my shops problems after all. After a long discussion we had to throw in the towel and set up shop on Etsy. It’s not something we wanted to do but since all my goods can’t be properly sold we thought it best. Once I am set up I will be posting a link.

Thanks,

Monica

Elegant Ideas – Etched Glass Containers

Hello All,

Need a quick idea? Why not DIY yourself some etched glass containers. I found these cute glass containers at Ross a few weeks ago and thought they make great socking stuffers for family and friends. All you really need is some contact paper (the same stuff you line your kitchen cabinets) cut out some attractive patterns stick them on the glass and etch.

Add in whatever goodie you want in the jar and some hay string or ribbon and you’re done.

Order System Issues!!

Hello All,

My webmaster tells me there are still bugs in the system. If you want to make an order please feel free to submit your order to orders@uniquedesignsbymonica.com.

He tells me that issue should be resolved by Friday at the latest.

Shipping Errors Fixed

Hello All,

I was recently informed by customers that my website was charging an insane amount for shipping. After speaking with the head of IT aka my husband who indecently knows about IT and has an engineering background was able to fix the problem.

I wanted to inform you all that shipping is a flat rate of $6.00 for multiple items. If the items are large in size for example (Ornaments or Glass) the amount is still only $6.00. If the items are small such as (charms or bottle caps) you will only be charged $1.00 as a flat rate.

I do apologies for any confusion this might have causes, thank you for shopping!

Pokémon – Jigglypuff

Hello All,

After completing an order recently of 15 Super Mario Bro Ornaments I thought I move away from SMB for a bit and move to Pokémon.  So my most recent ornament is this charming Jigglypuff! I have to say Jigglypuff is my most favorite creature since it aired on TV oh so many Moons ago.
