What's new?

Hello Readers!

I know there has been a severe lack of updates lately- I am working on that!  I have decided to scrap Wordless Sundays for now because I just don't have the time to take interesting photographs. I figured you would get bored of seeing my cat or fireplaces.


But in lieu of Wordless Sundays, I have opted for a more interesting post- FEATURED SELLERS! Yes I will be interviewing some shop owners about themselves and their shops. If you have suggestions or would like to be featured yourself send us a convo on Etsy. Or better yet send us an E-Mail.

Remember the two articles I wrote all about Buy 'n Stay (Article Here) and Buy 'n Replace (Article Here) treasuries? Perhaps you should give one of them a try!!

I am Curator on this BNR for the Canadian Etsian Promo Team, Everyone is allowed to play not just Canadians!

Canadian Estisan Promo-Team's BNR Round 4

And the PromoPros are running a BNS, right now (I also help out, we are super friendly!)

Treasury Tuesday


Lately I have been listening to a lot of Florence and the Machine, and so I thought why not have Treasury Tuesday reflect that. Florence and the Machine video after the jump :D

Etsy Let's Talk: BNR

What is a BNR Treasury?!>

If you own an Etsy store, you should entertain the idea of trying BNR!

What is a BNR?

BNR stands for Buy 'N Replace.


BNR is a fast paced sister to BNS (read what a BNS is here).Every treasury has 16 spots where you would feature a shop. Much like a BNS you would purchase spot but instead of waiting for the next round you get in the current BNR! BNRs may be done in rounds but don't end when you fill all the spots--you simply replace the item with the new buyer's item! They can run anywhere from an hour to ten hours, it all depends on the curator!

The curator (creator) will have rules/regulations for you to follow in order to purchase into the BNR.
 The rule might be that there is a minimum purchase with an amount: ex. $4.00 before shipping. This means that you must spend at least $4.00 on the item or more before the shipping charges in order to get an immediate spot.

One thing that is very different from BNS is the 'Call out', in a BNR you MUST call out the shop you would like to purchase from. Because it is a Buy 'N Replace... the shop you purchase from you replace in the treasury.

Mini Hats!

So I just watched Corinne from Craftovision & Threadbanger, demonstrating how to make your own a mini hat. Now truth be told I am not a milliner or much of a hat wearer, but even I found this tutorial easy to follow. If you end up trying it, I would love to see the results!

02/04/12 Treasury Features

 We were featured in some treasuries! 

I notice because of the sheer amount of people in my circles that I often miss treasuries that feature Bayleaf Button items. So I used the amazing widget tools from CraftCult to find all the ones I have missed lately.

And so just past this jump you can see all of them!

New Listings

 It is hard working all day and having to come home and make dinner. Well not hard but you know the food that takes time or a lot of preparation-that is something you can't always do during the working week. And that is one thing I miss. In the upcoming week I am going to see if I can't do more exciting meals, any recipes or suggestions would be great.

So tonight one of my family members was home early and made breaded pork schnitzel, mash potatoes, and steamed carrots. You have no idea how good that was, it makes my mouth water just thinking about it!

 Speaking of mouth watering... we have new items in the SHOP!

Visit the listing on Bayleaf Button's store on Etsy
I think these are going to be a big hit with everyone who has a toddler or is going to have one!

Not to toot my own horn but these also make a FANTASTIC gift for baby showers.

Obviously they are not appropriate for toddlers or babies to handle but their Moms and Dads can wear them!








Did I mention that I had time to sew today? I made two wonderful zipper bags, that are available at the shop, this weekend I plan to make a bunch more. I have more fabric kicking around than I should!

Extra padded bag, great for cell phones or small cameras!
Check out this Zipper pouch at our Etsy shop!

02/02/2012 Busy & Custom Pins


Running around like a chicken with my head cut off lately


I have been busy today, getting all my orders ready to go to the post office tomorrow. That is why I am blogging at roughly 1 in the morning.

Last weekend we had a family emergency and I have not had the chance to visit the post office so tomorrow after the Evil work I will go be going. Evil work keeping me busy and employed, how dare it. I kid-I love work, I work with really great people and honestly cannot complain.

In the near future you will see some new pins coming up... I am getting a head start on St. Patrick's Day. Thanks to my good friend who has nothing better to do but feed me pin ideas.

Any other bloggers out there have as much trouble coming up with blog entry titles as I do? Took me an extra five minutes.. and look what I came up with.


By the way! Bayleaf Buttons is having a SALE on custom pinback buttons, you can checkout the section of the store that holds them HERE. As well you can get an additional 20% off on ANY of our items with this code: EVILPOST5
