Leather, Wood & A Glowforge

Leather, Wood & A Glowforge

Leather, Wood & A Glowforge So, there have been a few more changes the last couple of months here at JulsSweetDesigns.  Changes that I am VERY excited to share with you all! So let’s talk Leather, Wood & A Glowforge!  If you happen to follow me on Instagram or Facebook, or if you have checked out my Store, you will see some new and exciting types of handmade items available in my store.  New Categories  Wooden Earrings Leather Earrings Wooden Signs Coasters Keychains At the end of January, I purchased a new business tool, a Laser Engraver!!  My Glowforge is a beautiful machine (if you can call a machine beautiful lol). So far, I haven’t done too many complicated things, but I am enjoying what I have been able to make.  Some items are simple designs that you don’t need to personalize.  And some of the items are fun custom-made items like family signs or Mom signs.  Really, the sky is the limit for what all I can make on the Glowforge, but I’m starting small with my ideas and products and going from there! I have been enjoying learning some new skills with having the Glowforge too. I’m learning more about leather, which I really didn’t know much about before, and  I’m also learning  about different types of wood.    At this time all the wooden signs are made of Oak wood that I picked up at a local planning mill.  And the wooden earrings are made from hardwood that Glowforge specifically has produced to use for the Glowforge.   You can pick from 4 different types of wood for your earrings: Walnut, Maple, Red Oak, or Cherry.   The leather earrings are all made of genuine leather.  Though my focus on new products will be more geared to what I

Personalized Metal Ornaments

Personalized Metal Ornaments

Personalized Metal Ornaments Each Christmas my family likes to get a special Christmas tree ornament for each person.  Sometimes we pick out an ornament that “describes or expresses” a special memory of the year.  Or it might symbolize or describe what the year was like.  One year we made our own, and then another we painted a pre-made ornament in the colors and design of our choosing. Last year I added ceramic ornaments to my shop.  So, of course, I wanted some ceramic ornaments for myself and my family!  I designed an ornament for each person in my family and they turned out adorable.  My kids loved how their ornament had their own name on it.  I even designed a few that we gave away as gifts to extended family. Last year I was amazed, and excited, how well they sold in my shop around Christmas time!  I love being able to personalize the ornaments for each customer.  I’ve had several customers tell me how they enjoy getting a personalized ornament for their kids or grandkids and how they love the cute designs that I have to offer.  When I hear the stories of how they or their loved one have appreciated their personalized ornament, it always makes me sigh and think, “this is why I enjoy doing what I do.”  I’ll admit it, I love putting smiles on the faces of other people. So, this year I am expanding my ornament line!  YAY!!!  I now offer Metal Ornaments! I am super excited about the ornaments!  Not only are they lightweight (ceramic can be heavy for some Christmas tree branches), but they also print crisper and clearer than the ceramic. (Ceramic ornaments do have a tendency to have a little halo effect and can have some blurring to them because

Camping Time Fun

Camping Time Fun It’s that time of year again! Time for some fun and relaxation. It is time to go camping!  Anyone else excited for some camping time?!  I know that camping is not everyone’s thing.  I don’t think it is really my thing sometimes.  lol   I’m the type of person who still desires to have some “comforts.”  I want a bed to sleep in and I appreciate a bathroom close by. My family doesn’t currently have our own camper, but my In-Laws allow us to borrow theirs when we need it.  It’s an older Pop Up Camper, so it doesn’t have a bathroom in it.  So, a few years ago, I purchased a portable camper potty to put in it. Which, for me, makes big difference.  We are saving and looking for our own camper some day, but for now we are thankful for great parents who bless us with theirs for the time being. So, in the spirit of thinking about going camping, I updated my Camping line in my JulsSweetDesigns Shop! I offer some great items to use when camping, with your own personalized camper design. If you you are looking for drink ware, I offer ceramic mugs, poly mugs and water bottles. Ceramic Mug Poly Mug Water Bottle You can also add to the mugs or water bottle with other items that are great at the table! A Placemat is a nice way to easily clean up after a messy meal.   Polymer plates and bowls are nice to use when camping also. They are also very durable. Cuddle up in a nice warm sherpa blanket.  Kids will find bath time fun with their own personalized hooded towel.  Even if it isn’t camping time, you can get other items that make you think about the fun times you

Independence Day Cupcakes Stars Bottle Label

Memorial Day Celebrations and Free Water Bottle Label Printable

Memorial Day Celebrations and Free Water Bottle Label Printable Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  And it’s time for summer celebrations to begin!  To celebrate, I thought it would be fun to give away a Free Water Bottle Label Printable!  A free printable is always fun! For most families, Memorial Day/weekend is spent enjoying picnics with friends and family.  So, in the spirit of picnic celebrations, I’m offering you a free page of water bottle label printables!   I’ve designed them, so that you have a nice white space on the front to write a person’s name.  After you download the file, all you need to do is print, cut them out and tape them on.  Or if you don’t want to tape the label on, you can purchase sticker paper.  (I like to purchase full sheet sticker paper, so I can print and cut out any size or shape that I might need.) Bottle labels are not only fun to use but they are also practical!  How many times have you used a water bottle, walked away from the bottle, then you come back and either you can’t remember where you put it, or there are several other water bottles around and you don’t know which belongs to you.  Well, here is a fun way to solve that problem.  Now you can put a label on each bottle!  Practical and fun, that is always a good thing in my book.   Other than having a picnic, how do you spend your time on Memorial weekend? My family likes to celebrate the weekend by going to our family’s cabin in the woods.  It is a time for us to enjoy the outdoors by having a campfire, sitting and relaxing in the sun, and the kids love to play in the stream that is
