I am just taking my sweet-ass time with the jewelry shop updates aren't I? Here's the thing, I had an idea for earrings. Now that I've made those earrings, I'm not 100% feeling it. I hate when that happens! I don't even want to post a picture of them. Instead I have this pretty, pretty, pretty necklace I added which I love! It is also available in the Storenvy shop if that tickles your fancy. So these earrings are sitting... Read more

It's time for me to share my recent favorite blog links I hope you'll take a look at. It's a little all over the place but it's all good! "When you turn jealousy and comparison into a crush, it not only reframes your emotions as healthy and positive (and gives you motivation to improve your game)." What a great approach to addressing jealousy with other bloggers/sellers from Love and Data. Everything has pros and cons. I have only met ONE... Read more

It may be time for me to toot my own horn here (Toot! Toot!) and give you some Mother's Day gift ideas from my Etsy shop. Use Mother's Day coupon code MAMA23 to get 23% off your order in the Etsy shop. Mother's Day is May 10th so there is still time. Jewelry can be tricky! I know. My jewelry design style is not for everyone but I have a nice jewelry mix of traditional and quirky, younger and young... Read more

Hey everyone! I am taking over the One Woman Shop Instagram account @onewomanshop today so hop on over and give a follow and see what a typical day is like in Pulp Sushi land. I joined One Woman Shop earlier this year as I was looking for more networking opportunities for solopreneurs and this has been a nice fit so far. When you work by yourself and you are home most of the time, it is easy to start to... Read more

Another Monday is here and it's raining and gross outside but I'm happy. I'm trying to practice being thankful more instead of wallowing in what I don't have. Today I'm thankful that I get to stay home in this weather, drink my coffee, and have VH1 Classic's "Totally 80s" playing as background noise. I'm also thankful for the really nice weekend I just had. I got to spend a lot of time outside and watch some Vassar College baseball. I... Read more

I intentionally did not talk much about Etsy going public. I wasn't exactly against it but there was that part of me that felt like my favorite underground punk band that just me and a few friends were into suddenly would become U2. Maybe that's a bit dramatic? I knew they were going public this week but I did not know it was yesterday. I just happen to be going down to the city yesterday. While on the train I'm... Read more

Ever get into a creative or emotional funk? Times where you just feel down and defeated? Here is my extensive comprehensive list to turn things around: Scribble angrily in journal Tear out pages of said journal Play The Simpsons "Tapped Out" - I'm "pulpsushi" Play other games on iPhone and Kindle Watch monster movies on Netflix Eat cookies Make a Vanilla Chai Curl up in a fetal position on couch with favorite blanket Cry Tell your partner you feel hopeless...

I've been using Hootsuite for a couple of years and it's been a life saver when it comes to scheduling my tweets. However as I follow more people on Twitter and put more lists together, my Twitter was getting a little out of control. That is until I read this super informative post from The Loudmouth Lifestyle about blogging time savers and Hootsuite was the main focus. To the untrained eye, this may still appear a little overwhelming. I was... Read more

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... Read more
