1. I found this great site with tips and ideas to make your blog the best it can be, it is worth taking a few minutes and checking it out. It's called Ink Rebels.

2. I am really excited about my new collection Hardware in Bloom and I will be adding new pieces everyday.

3. My husbands car broke down a couple of weeks ago and I have been stuck in the house so he can use my car to drive to work. Well he got a new car this past weekend and I finally have a car again, well kind of I have to share it with my 16 year old.

  1. Okay, I'll give this a try...
    1) I'm working on not one, but two, large custom orders this week! When it rains, it pours!
    2) I've been accepted to participate in a prestigious swag event so I'm also frantically working to produce 200 sample items worthy of this event!
    3) For the first time ever, I'm painting a lamp!

  2. Wow, Ramblin Mama that sounds great! Good luck with your event, I hope it brings you lots of sales.

  3. 1. Read this blog post by My Latest Obsession today about recycling a long sleeve tshirt to create a sweater/jacket. Pretty cool! http://mylatestobsession3.blogspot.com/2010/03/long-sleeve-turned-ruffle-cardi.html
    2. I blogged earlier this week about "Why Wear A Scarf?" I also posted the question on Etsy Forums. I've been receiving lots of great ideas from readers which I will share on Monday.
    3. I am currently working on adding spring scarves to my shop. Lots of lovely pastels, florals, stripes and color! Out taking photos these past few beautiful sunny days to post next week!

  4. Hi :) I love, love, love the Ink Rebels webite. Thanks for sharing that link. Also that yellow flower necklace in your shop is so very pretty. I go crazy for bright colors :) Yay for getting the car back! Drive safely out there.

  5. SuZe, you new scarves sound like they will be fun, and lucky you for having sunny day!

    Madame, I agree the Ink Rebles website is full of really helpful information. I am glad you like the flower necklace, I was really excited when I figured out how to add fun color to the washers.

    Thanks everyone for stopping by today!

  6. I'm loving your new collection, Hardware in Bloom. I am particularly fond of mixing hardware with unexpected elements like flowers.

    I had a big giveaway on my blog this week and was surprised at how much work it was. I'm continually amazed at how much work goes into marketing (and that was what I did in my previous career).

  7. Well, here goes... (1) After 20 plus years as a decorative painter, I discovered polymer clay and I'm totally addicted!
    (2) I've recently started writing tutorials for polymer clay and have them for sale on my website, my blog and at ClayLessons.com
    (3) I'm having a blast playing with covering pens and making stands for them.

  8. 1) We have a new blog post which shows how we make our bottles…a pictorial view. It was a fun post to create.

    2) I’m currently reading Made to Stick: Why Some Ideas Survive and Others Die by Chip & Dan Heath. It was recommended by Megan @ www.craftmba.com . Just started, and not sure how I will apply it yet, but it has some really good insight into what marketing messages work and why. It’s also a pretty enjoyable read.

    3) Checked out the Ink Rebels site because I’ll take blogging recommendations from you any day---your blog absolutely rocks and is a tremendous inspiration to me. Thanks, so much, for that.


Your thoughts and ideas are an important part of the conversation, thanks for sharing!
