Introducing ChezChaniSupply on Etsy!

I'd like to introduce you to ChezChaniSupply, a wholly owned subsidiary of ChezChani.

On this site I hope to offer you the best possible deals on craft supplies, focusing mostly on jewelry supplies.

ChezChaniSupply is a result of my being an extremely frugal person. I found by buying in bulk and spending ALOT of time shopping around that I could save money on my supplies. I could only use a small percentage of what I bought. Thus, ChezChaniSupply was born.

Before making any purchases I comb Etsy and other supply sites, and if I don't believe I can offer the item at a competive rate,then I won't buy it. (Well I might buy it, but I won't sell it.)

For our grand openning, I'm pleased to offer you 10 percent off your purchase. This code is good for a limited time only so don't delay if you see something you like.

Discount code is GRANDOPENING . Feel free to share this code with your friends. I have many items still to be listed so check back often!

Thanks so much for giving ChezChaniSupply a look.

Jewels By Jules

I wanted to take a moment to share with you a wonderful shop on Etsy. Jewels By Jules is really worth a look. Or two...or three.

Jules is dealing with alot and has found the therapy of crafting. And we get to reap the rewards!

An unusual item is this wonderful engagement ring box. Now it may say "engagement ring" but I think it's just a really wonderful little box for any special item.

Check out this supernatural necklace!


Here are a few more of her beautiful items, look at the pictures then head on over to the Jewels By Jules.

Why Does It Take So Long To Fill A Seat?

Generally I prefer to leave my day job where it belongs, in the poker room. But eventually (aka, when I retire) I may have to write a book about it. I have one page done so far and since I haven't blogged in awhile, what the heck. Here it is. Along with pictures of some of the poker/gambling related jewelry I've worked on. These are pieces that can be found at ChezChani.

So, Why Does It Take So Long To Fill A Seat?

Short answer:
Table changes

Long answer:
“John , I have a seat for you on table 9, would you like it?.”

“Oh, I just played my blind, let me play to my button.”

Tick Tock.

“John are you going to take that seat?”

“Oh right, let me look at it.”

Tick Tock. Tick Tock.

“John, you taking that seat?”

“Yes, I’m just racking up.”

Tick Tock. Tick Tock. Tick Tock.

“John, what’s up, are you moving??”

“You know what, I think I’ll just stay here for now. But leave me up for the next one.”

Long Time & The Temple Of Flora

It's appalling that I have not posted anything here since May! Of course the end of May through the beginning of July is one of the busiest times in the Las Vegas poker world. But now the WSOP (World Series Of Poker) has come and gone and things have slowed drastically.

At home my little Izzy has become a little high maintenance, due to her kidney disease. IV 3 times a week, a Pepcid once a day, high Iron vitamin twice a day...

But I shall always squeeze in some crafting and I'm currently going crazy with scrabble tiles and dominos. I can finally make my own pictures so I just wanted to show you the Temple Of Flora series I've just completed. Soon to be seen on Etsy.

eBay Fever!

I'm getting the "sell sell SELL" fever again. My reasons are twofold. It helps me get rid of some really nice things that I just don't wear/use. And now, it is helping me with my Buy A Used or Refurbished DSLR fund.

I love cameras. Don't know why. Had a lovely Nikon SLR when I was in college (still have it) that I rarely used. I did take a photography class but discovered my favourite part was being in the darkroom. Once I moved to LA, I never got back into the darkroom.

Then the age of digital brought me my $1200 Sony digicam. I'm frugal but sometimes, I just want it and I get it. Never really learned how to use that one properly. Still have it, could fetch $100 on eBay on a good day. Might end up there soon. Mostly right now I'm using my little Kodak Point and Shoot.

But I got hit with a yen for a DSLR. I learned from the Sony though, don't spend so much! I figure a two or three year old DSLR would be fine for me. Real camera buffs probably upgrade and update fairly often.

Long story short, check out my ebay auctions. Currently I have a really great suit that I don't wear because skirts don't look good with Shape-ups, and some perfume that is very popular but smells like bug spray to me.

Oh, and if you have any recommendations on good cameras, or places to buy used or refurbished, let me know. Thanks!
