Happy Friday! I don't have a shop update this week to share but I did get a sweet stash of jewelry that needs refurbishing so I hope to have some shop updates next week. I do want to share a friendly tip that some of you may not know about which could come in handy... You may be wondering if it's okay to use a Gmail address for your business or should you set up a "me@mybusiness.com" email. I don't... Read more

Back with another book review, today I will be talking about #GIRLBOSS by Sophia Amoruso. I've seen this book floating around but decided to get into it after seeing several people recommended it in the Being Boss Facebook Group. I couldn't put #GIRLBOSS down. Sophia shares her story of starting her business from scratch with just a couple of vintage clothing items on eBay to growing it into Nasty Gal. She had no idea what she was doing but she...

I'm back! I was only gone for a few days but it felt longer. We went down to Manhattan and stayed over the holiday weekend. We didn't have much of an agenda. I just wanted to post this first because I just love the pink building! It might be an eye-sore for some folks but not me. This was taken in the East Village, maybe 5th Street off of 2nd Avenue. I got down to the city Thursday morning and... Read more

Happy Friday everyone! By the time you read this, I will be in NYC just hanging out for the weekend and a change of scenery. Hoping this weekend can give me a recharge of sorts as I feel like I've been slacking on the shop updates. My focus has been on other things still related to Pulp Sushi but not the actual "making". It comes with the business when you do everything yourself. The images link to their Storenvy listings... Read more

Happy April Fool's Day! Don't worry, I have no tricks up my sleeve. Actually as I type this, I'm struggling a little bit because I smashed the shit out of my right ring finger yesterday which makes typing pretty awkward. Yeow! But I'm just being a big baby. Today I wanted to share some more great blog reads I've come across and wanted to share the love. Check them out! I feel like my blog has been under the radar... Read more

Do you love Mad Men? Are you sad to see it all come to an end this season? I do love me some Don Draper. As my loving tribute, I wanted to dedicate a post to the JEWELRY of Mad Men. I consider mid-century style and personal design inspiration for Pulp Sushi jewelry so I hope you enjoy what I've put together today. Pearls! Lots and lots of pearls. Big pearls, small pearls, pearl necklaces, pearl earrings. Still very popular... Read more

The SHOP at ArtsWestchester is located at 31 Mamaroneck Avenue, White Plains, NY. Hours are Tuesday through Saturday 12pm to 5 pm. I'm in some excellent company too.

Last week I mentioned that I am writing my first e-book and I'm pretty excited about it! Writing is something I have always enjoyed since I was little and blogging has provided my writing "fix" for many years. I played with the idea of writing an e-book but didn't know what to write about. Now I have FOUR ideas for an e-book, funny how that happens. There is one topic that is really pulling at me so I'm going for... Read more

I don't watermark all of my images because I'm lazy, especially when it comes to product items. Sometimes I use them for images shared on Instagram. I've been a part of discussions on whether or not it's worth watermarking images. I don't think it's necessary for me because I am not selling digital downloads, photography, or stationery designs. There's a reason why many card makers post a photo of their card in their shop over posting the image file, it's... Read more

Happy Friday! I'm glad to share what's new in the shops this week and I have an announcement towards the end of post that I'm just a bit giddy about. I scored some pretty cool brass gears recently and couldn't wait to start incorporating them in to some jewelry! The gears are very light weight and smooth and not scratchy on the skin, which was a concern I had but it's all good! This week I want to show off... Read more
