} End of 2013 Nea Recap

I’ve been on a really long blogging hiatus (besides last week’s post), right!? I’ve been having trouble redefining blogging for myself, since the previous way doesn’t seem to get my blood pumping of excitement anymore (not as much anyway). That’s without mentioning that Holiday season is a totally cra-zay time where blogging falls pretty far in the priority list…

That said, I also managed to create a lot of new items at the end of 2013, right before everything went haywire. lol!

So, here’s a little recap! :)

} 5yr Anniversary Sale!

Nea is now 5 years old! Well well! WOOHOO! :) Wow, time passes by so fast sometimes!

To celebrate, I am having my annual anniversary 15% OFF SALE in my Etsy Shop! Just use the code “5Bdays” at checkout from August 15th to 21st! :)

I also decided to redo this whole site/blog as a gift to, well, myself!

My now ex-blog Creativadoration had more than 540,000 visits in the past 5.5 years of it’s existence, and that is something I am very proud of! But, I felt it was time for the blog to merge with Nea, so that now everything can be found in one single place!

I really hope you like it! :)

I had much fun designing this new website, my ex-graphic designer past coming in handy! Then the wonderful Paule created some super cute illustrations for me for the header and footer! After the look was done and ready, Valérie took everything and coded it into WordPress, so that what you see right now is exactly what I designed! And let’s not forget that the whole idea of this new merged website/blog was a suggestion from Guillaume and his marketing point of view! Thank you all for working with me on this! :)

Now, go shop 15% off, people! :D

New at Nea!

SOOOOO much has happened recently, so much new!! So here’s the post for all of it at the same time! :)

As you can see above, I launched a new collection of 5 stitched necklaces on wooden pendants! I’m really loving the texture contrast with these! I hope you’ll give ’em love too :)

Also, as you can see above again, I now have a series of new pictures for style you already know and love! My wonderful friend (and Etsy seller!) Noemiah agreed to be my model for a day last month! Don’t you just love her look (and awesome glasses!)? :)

Hopefully that’ll help you shop online, I know it’s not always easy as it seems! :) Look for them now on about half my jewelry pieces!

The Serpentine line also made it’s debut! It’s about a simple dashed design with lovely enamel chains. For the unique discreetness!

Last but not least, I recently added 3 bricks & mortar shops (from a 2 to now 5, big jump!) and 2 online shops where I sell my wares! Toronto, Ottawa and Old-Montreal can now find my stuff near them!! Go to my website to get addresses and links! ;)

Voila! Now you know everything… or so ;)

My new Wall Wear is here!!!

Wall Wear - Starter Collection

Yesterday and this morning was the launch of my new home decor items in my Nea Shop, called Wall Wear! They are cross-stitch and embroidery pieces, framed in embroidery hoops (wooden new, vintage metal and wood). Some even feature metal flowers that I purchased originally for jewelry!

Feedback has been wonderful, I’m really appreciating all the wonderful comments on my Flickr and on Etsy!

And to top it all off, Grace from Design*Sponge featured some pieces this morning! How OMG-Too-Cool is that!! Thanks so much Grace!!!

Here’s a few pieces from the collection:


***
Many pieces already sold (YAY!), but please stay with me while I hand stitch some more this week and the followings! You can RSS my Nea Shop to be informed first of new items added, or check back often! :)
***

After making a few Wall Wear, I figured I needed a way to tie the knot between these decor pieces and my jewelry! So, I decided to do a mix of both and do some embroidery necklaces, just like this one:

I think it is a great idea! I had one of the necklaces on (not this one) while visiting a craft show 2 weeks ago, and the feedback was really great!

I could hardly wait to launch everything this week! It’s been an almost 3 months process for these items to be born (not full-time, of course), and I’m really happy of how it turned out!

What you all think? :)
