A new blog for me

Yeah, just what I need – one more place to have to keep up with. LOL This one is intended for my side biz, for my jewelry.  Actually I already have a link to it here, except it used to be my e-commerce site.  I switched things around over the weekend, moved the e-commerce pages […]

Caution: infrequent posting may lie ahead

Yeah I know, I’ve been less than great about keeping up around here.  Sorry. I just tend to get in moods – some weeks I’ll post every day, multiple times a day… Others you may not hear from me for an entire week.  That’s just the way I roll (ha ha).

A knitting project: Little Big Planet’s Sackboy

Ever since that game came out, my husband has wanted them to make and sell a Sackboy plush of some kind, since he would most certainly buy one. Well, they have not done so yet (to our knowledge), or if they have the quality is less than stellar. However, there is a knitting designer in […]

So I guess I like the steampunk style

Who knew?  I went ahead and signed up for that Christi Friesen steampunk gryphon class I mentioned the other day, the night before it was slated to start.  Then on Saturday after I dropped off my daughter at her grandmother’s house for her monthly overnight stay, I went to the craft store to pick up […]

There is an online class being held by Christi Friesen, on how to create the Steampunk look with polymer clay in the style she is famous for.  I came across it several weeks ago and have been hemming and hawing over it, whether to sign up or not (it costs $40 and runs for six […]

A new place to sell handmade wares

So I’ve been seeing on several blogs that there is this new website called Art Fire where artisans who make handmade items can put their products up for sale for one monthly fee. Right now for the first 5000 artisans who sign up, it will only be $7/mo for life – as long as they […]

Contemplating bead making

I have a bunch of polymer clay sitting around from when I did sculpting (of dragons, primarily, if you’re curious) a few years ago.  Once the kiddo was born, my interest in it kind of waned because it was a bit of a challenge to try juggling work, caring for her in the evenings and […]

Sticky: Friday’s Jewelry Feature

I figured, with the upcoming month of October being Breast Cancer Awareness month, that my first feature will be for my awareness bracelets.

Every Friday

Starting tomorrow, I am going to start a small featurette for my jewelry store to try to ramp up some business over there.  I will feature one item from the store either every Friday, or every other Friday, and offer a discount on that item.  How steep of a discount, I haven’t yet decided.  Maybe […]
