Have it Your Way- Pick Your Holiday Sale!

Choose Your Own Holiday Sale

Okay peeps- in case you didn’t realize it but I goofed last Saturday when I forgot (whoops!) to add my sale for the day. How do you have a 12 Days of Christmas sale with ummm only 11 days worth of sales? Not fair right!?

So today, I’m making up for the day lost by letting YOU pick your sale over at Oceanside Designs! Yup- simply pick the one that works best for your order. There is still time to order for the holidays and be guaranteed Christmas delivery.

Happy Friday everyone! xoxo


Mel’s Manic Monday & Discounted Gift Certificate

Discounted Gift Cards

Phew! With holiday season in full force things are quite busy around here. It’s all good though because I’m having a blast and all the adorable photos I get to make goodies with keep my spirits brights and my heart smiling! And we’re wrapping up the 12 Days of Christmas sale this Wednesday. Yup- that actually makes it 13 Days of Christmas fun! I goofed and forgot to update my sale Saturday soooo that just means an extra day of discounts for you guys. =)

Since the items I make are personalized with photos I know some have struggled with the idea of gifting something like this when they may not have access to a friend or family’s favorite photos. Well problem solved today peeps! You can still give them a gift of handmade but let them pick their own photos and give them a gift certificate. Who doesn’t love gift certificates anyway? And even better? Who doesn’t love discounted gift certificates?? Get more bang for your buck today with the following gift certificate discounts:

$25 for only $18.50
$50 gift certificate for only $35
$100 gift certificate for only $70

Other discounts applied to the coaster set and trivet gift certificates also!

Give them as one gift certificate or split them in whatever dollar amounts you’d like. Or you can always purchase for yourself and use later. ;) So do stop by to see me over at Oceanside Designs if you get a chance today.

Ahhh…and with all the holiday and Monday {fun} madness around here, I couldn’t help but sing this song loudly this morning and thought I’d share. I know we all feel like this every now and again…

Happy Monday beautifuls! (I promise more Oceanside wedding loveliness is coming soon!)



It’s BOGO on the 7th Day of Christmas!

Buy One, Get One 50%

Okay first, if you haven’t seen my vendor spotlight over on All Women Stalk go check it out and get the dish on my new Etsy shop! One of my favorite online gal pals was so gracious enough to feature my new store and I couldn’t feel more honored!

Also, today is day 7 of my 12 Days of Christmas specials and its a goodie (I think, I hope)…BOGO 50% off ornaments!! This applies to both the small and large ornaments.

And ladies (and gents), when I listed the personalized photo ornaments in my Etsy shop a few weeks ago, I had NO idea how fast they’d fly off the “virtual” shelf so quickly.  I tell you it has been soooo much fun designing and crafting up these little precious tile memories for those who have requested them. There is something about the newlyweds or recently engaged getting so excited over their favorite couple’s photo and putting it on their first ornament together.  And for those in their first home or having their first little one is just as exciting! I get a thrill out of making each and every one.

Mr. Oceanside was out of town yesterday so as a little surprise I decorated the house and put up our Christmas tree before he got home. He LOVED it and we were sooo excited to hang our first “married” Christmas ornament last night!

So let the holidays in the Steaple house officially begin!

For the first time home owners…

A little family keepsake…

And something for the precious little ones who keep our world going and growing..

Check out my shop today because this sale only lasts until midnight PST! Have a fantastic Thursday everyone!
