I'm still here


Ok, it's official. I'm terrible at updating my blog. I haven't been on here in so long, google has updated everything. All the buttons are different and moved around. I feel like after 8 years, I have to learn everything all over again.

Rest assured, I'm still making and shipping all your favorite earrings. Filling orders gives me purpose and adds structure to my days. Thank you to everyone who has placed orders this spring. I appreciate each and every order. 

Social media has slowed down for me, as I feel like there isn't much to talk about these days. I'm staying busy with books and streaming shows, but that doesn't make for an interesting Instagram feed.

I've even burned through most of my ideas for painted wood goods. If you haven't seen my wood plaques, or handpainted wood earrings, you should really check them out. They're fun to make, and I've been pleasantly pleased with how popular they've been.

Handmade Omaha


I'll admit it, I've been terrible about posting here on the blog. Things are just... you know.

I had to pop in here and thank everyone for supporting Omaha's makers at the Handmade Omaha Cyber Show. It was a huge success, not just in terms of income (which the makers are all VERY VERY grateful for), but in all the interactions, kind words, and support that our shoppers showed to all of us. Many grateful tears were shed over many laptops all over town. We didn't expect that an online show would stir up so many emotions, but here we are. 

I set up a coupon code for my etsy shop for the show. Use coupon code HOCYBERSHOW15 for 15% off your order, and get free USA shipping on orders $35+. I'm going to leave this coupon up here until things get back to normal in case you need a fun pair of earrings, a jackalope, or some wall art to cheer yourself up. I also offer gift wrap if you want to send a gift directly to a friend.

Hang in there, stay safe and healthy.

Featured Item of the Day

Taco Earrings
Every fabric button is handmade by Rachel O. Earring measures approx .5 inch wide, and has a hypoallergenic, raw titanium post. Posts are nickel-free and cadmium free. Fabric buttons are made of 100% cotton, hand stretched (by me) over an aluminum dome. Photos of solid white buttons are included for size reference ONLY. Ruler and ear are NOT included. You will receive one pair of earrings as seen in the first photo. Due to the handmade nature of your earrings, they will vary ever so slightly from the pair in the photo, but will be equally awesome. Earrings look their best when cared for properly. Please avoid getting them wet (remove before shower/swim), put on after applying makeup, and you will be able to enjoy them for a long time.

Stay Home! Wash Your Hands!

I've been working from home, more or less alone, since 2013. Even with all that practice, the cabin fever from social distancing is setting in. 
Putting my feelings into acrylic seemed like the natural thing to do. 
These pins go great with your work from home outfit, and are only $15 with free USA shipping. Email me for invoice. 
Pin measures 1.75 in across and has a tie-tack back.
