Happy New Year - 2012!

I mentioned on Facebook a few days that 2011 wasn't such a bad year for me. For once, I don't have to curse on the current year and "don't let the door hit you on the way out!". Nope, I have no complaints and it feels nice. It wasn't spectacular, I didn't get to go anywhere new or take a real vacation like I had hoped but it was still busy and fun. I spent more time making my business... Read more →

I have seen other blogs do monthly recaps which is kind of cool. I don't think I'll be doing that BUT I love sharing pictures and taking more fun pictures now thanks to apps like Instagram & Pixlromatic. I wanted to take a look back at some of my favorite pictures taken throughout the year. January Grand Opening of Darkside Records in Poughkeepsie, best place to get music in the Hudson Valley I started to teach myself how to knit... Read more →

Yesterday I was so caught up in my own birthday hype that I didn't really speak much about my weekend doing Yelp's Giftacular Market. My setup was sweet thanks to Kathy from Gnorasaurus for letting me use one of her panels to hang my necklaces. I am considering getting one (maybe not as high) and use it as part of my display, some wallspace can't hurt. The bags I had at Pulp Sushi have sold so Kathy gave me a... Read more →

Alyssa Milano Jake Gyllenhaal, and....... Me! They should be honored to share this special day with me. This pic was taken of me this past weekend at Yelp's Giftacular - my hair was wet so I threw my hat on. The show was so much fun! For a show, it was so well organized, spaced out, friendly, I didn't have to crawl under my table in order to get out, had a blast! Saturday was definitely the busier day but... Read more →

It's the big one! The big two day last minute holiday shopping extravaganza eleganza! Yelp Giftacular Holiday Market! I've never been to a Yelp event before let alone participate in one as a vendor. This is Yelp's first Holiday Market too so it's a first for everyone! Awww young love! :) Look for Pulp Sushi and Gnorasaurus as we mesh both of our booths into one 20x10 space of GNORASUSHI GOODNESS! Can you tell I'm amped? I have been fortunate... Read more →

Remember back in February when I signed up for Indie Business 3.0? Probably one of the best decisions I've ever made with regard to working on my business. Earlier this week it was annouced that the new e-course for 2012 is open for registration! If just opened your open or you're seriously thinking about taking your hobby to the next level, this course provides some wonderful tools to help you on your way. Read more →

Etsy shop closed, now what? Learn something new!

Since December 1st, I haven't been doing much on the jewelry-making front and I'm totally fine with that. I wanted to take a break from it as I felt like I have exhausted myself mentally. Except for one thing which I'm not quite ready to share just yet. I will say this, in 2012 I hope to launch my first COLLECTION! Like full blown necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. I have to make them all first. Right now they're just visions... Read more →

Wow! What a fun day Saturday turned out to be. If I was at the Bust Craftacular instead, I would probably be a little stressed out and way tired. I made the right decision. Although I did need an extra day to recuperate. Space was very limited for the vendors and this has to be my smallest display yet, but I think I made it work and it came out cute. I wasn't as tired at the end of the... Read more →
