open for business

i tried to think of the best way to make this announcement, and i figured that here was as good a place as any.

my etsy shop is currently closed, due to the overwhelming amount of hours i put in at my regular job - it's just too difficult to keep up an inventory. however, after taking a 2 month hiatus from pretty much all things crafty (due to hand surgery), i am finally feeling well enough to get back into the game...sort of. right now, i will only be taking custom orders. below is a list of items that i get regular requests for, along with tentative prices. all prices include supplies and labor, and shipping within continental US, unless otherwise noted. for shipping outside the US, costs will be added.

3x4 emjay original painting - $12

4x5, 5x5, 4x6 emjay original painting - $17

5x7, 6x6 emjay original painting - $21

8x6 emjay original painting - $25

8x10 emjay orginal painting - $30

> 8x10 up to 12x12 emjay original painting - $45

18x24 emjay original painting - $65 + shipping

24x20 emjay original painting - $73 + shipping

24x36, 28x36 emjay original painting - $100 + shipping

**if you do not see the dimensions you would like listed above, a quote can be made**

custom planner/address book/journal - $50-$75 (depends on size and content)

button earrings - $6 (small) $8 (large) -

button ring - $6 (small) $8 (large)

button earring/ring set - $10 (small) $12 (large)

handpainted canvas totebag (phrase of your choice) - $23

hand stitched ruffled totebag (your choice of up to 3 fabrics) - $32

**10% discount will be given if multiple items are purchased together.

**please allow for a 2-3 week turnaround for artwork, 1 week turnaround for jewelry, 2 week turnaround for totes and 4-6 week turnaround for journals/albums/planners

like i said before, these are all items that i get requests for and make regularly for people in my area, but i'm very interested in branching out and growing my client base. i am always up for a challenge, so if you have an idea for something and you need help seeing it realized, email me and maybe we can work something out :] i hope to be doing a lot of fun projects like these for folks in the next few months, as my day job tends to be slow at the start of the year.

as part of my blog makeover, i will be figuring out a way to have my pricing information easily accessible and readily available should anyone need or want to reference it.

if you are interested in purchasing anything, or working on a collaboration together, either email me at emjay0121(at)gmail(dot)com, or if you leave a comment in the comment section, be sure to leave me your email so i have a way of contacting you.

i'll leave you with a few photos of things i've done. i apologize in advance for the horrible photo quality...most of these are snapped by the buyer upon receipt. (i always forget to photo my work :/ )

emjay :]
