Cut down on identity theft ūüíįūüí≥

After being a victim of identity theft myself (long story), and hearing countless stories from Facebook friends, family and my students about their identity theft situations. I decided to try and make some of the items a bit prettier buy putting a special touch to my aluminum wallets. I am sure I can sell a few of these products since everytime I turn around someone else is telling me they are too.

The identity theft issues need to be addressed and everyone needs to protect themselves and we do the best we can to prevent this from happening at all or again. I just heard this info online not sure how true it is but there is a gadget that can be used by the thief that can collect all the info on your credit cards just by standing next to you for a few seconds. This info was scary to me and I did some research having a aluminum wallet and wrapping your cards in aluminum foil will help because the gadget that I spoke about above can not get through the foil or aluminum wallet.

Well I am sure in another year or less they will have figured out a way around this and we will have to come up another way to protect ourselves again. We just have to stay a few steps in front of them.

Soon in my etsy shop I will be selling the long aluminum wallets that also could hold a check book and has a small mirror inside as well. I bought a pink one for myself and decided to add a special touch to mine and it really has improved the look of this wallet. Keep checking my etsy shop at http://www.etsy.con/shop/ahindle78 to see when I add this item as well as some new designs and products as I prepare for the holiday season.

Here is a pic of my wallet

Vintage and Shabby Chic Decor

I have seen so many cute displays using vintage items in alot of stores these days. It takes me back because I see things that I know my grandparents had in their home.

I love some of the modern uses people have for vintage and shabby chic items.
I create alot of crafts and gifts but along with that I also sell vintage and shabby chic items that I think are in great condition and that someone else may have a need for.

I have seen pictures milk glass items such as vases, planters, etc used in so many ways like business card holders, desk organizers, flowers, plants, succulents, paper clip holders, pen holders, a catch all in the foyer area for keys and spare change, in the laundry room to place anything anyone in your home leaves in the pockets, candy dishes and so much more.

I am sure u can come up with some creative ideas yourself for these items and would love for you to leave your comments on what u do with your vintage items. What colors do u like or would like to purchase?

Here are some pictures of items for sale in my etsy shop and as I mentioned in a previous post I have already marked down the prices of vintage and home decor items in my shop so stop on by and see what I have. I am making room for some new finds. http://www.etsy.com/shop/ahindle78
