  1. Great!
    - My family will be going to North Dakato for the holidays and we'er all charged up about it! Should be fun to see the grandparents for a few days

    - I'm having a clearance sale in my shop, http://sedruola.etsy.com, if you use code "CLEAR2011" upon checkout you'll get 45% off your purchase. Can use as many times as you'd like until January 1, 2012

    - I'm working on several swatches for submission to magazines for patterns suggestions and I'm finding it's a bit crazy between projects!

  2. I really enjoy when you do this Valerie!

    I just blogged http://thehairypeachblog.blogspot.com/2011/12/institute-of-domestic-technology.html abut a great weekend date my hubby & I enjoyed.

    I'm loving browsing etsy these days with all the wonderful Holiday gifts!

    I always enjoy reading the blogs I follow, but there is something special about seeing and hearing what everyone is up to at this time of year and seeing family traditions. :-)

  3. Whew, I read through all the Google+ info as that is the new thing they are pushing. GFC for non Blogger blogs will be eliminated in March 2012.

    Just signed onto deviantArt this week:

    Finally, ordered the Christmas presents for overseas friends, only had one problem so far with a seller who said she couldn't be bothered/was too busy to read her etsy emails.

    Question, as etsy sellers do you read the etsy convos from buyers or only the paypal email?

  4. Hi Sadie, I hope you and your family has a wonderful trip over the holidays, and that you don't get to much snow in North Dakato.

    Meeling, I have been on Etsy every night. My daughter has a long list of things she wants off Etsy this year. I hope you are finding good stuff too.

    New End Studios, it sounds like you have been really busy lately. I have not done a lot of reading on Google+ yet but I hopefully next year I can get it going full swing. I would love to here how things go on devianArt. I have been thinking about signing up for months.

  5. I can't believe how busy it's been for the last month. I have had 5 shows and at two of them I sold over 75% of my inventory. I have been making jewelry like a mad woman, and I still have Etsy orders, and 3 stores that need inventory. I can't wait till the end of next week!

    I am going to pick up my daughter next Tuesday to bring her home for the holidays. She wants to watch old movies, bake cookies, and do crafts, I am looking forward to hanging out with her.

    For all my blog friends use coupon code HOLIDAY11 and receive 15% off your purchase. This code is good till 12/16, stop by my Etsy Shop and pick out something nice for yourself.

    HAPPY HOLIDAYS EVERYONE, and thank you for being a blog follower!!

  6. My family will be hanging at home this holiday and I can't wait to have a clear calendar. All four kids are creating lists of things to do but at least there is not schedule.

    The release of the 2nd Edition of CRAVE-Chicago is next week. I look forward to seeing it for the first time and plans have begun for a release party of my own.

    I hope to launch my seasonal newsletter mid-January. Now I just need to remember how it works after Val's patient hours of tutorial...

  7. That's awesome, Valerie - congrats on those shows, it sounds like your stuff is pretty popular! No surprises there, though - it's pretty awesome, how you use hardware for jewelry. :)

    And how exciting, I hope you have an awesome time with your daughter over the holidays! I bet you'll have a great time hanging out. :) Hugs!
