just another update

shopping goodies 04.30.05

Today you get to read a boring post because... well, because I have nothing interesting to post! Isn't it funny how that sometimes works? :) I've been working a lot lately which is great but it means I haven't had a whole lot of time at home to make new product for the shop. I am still aiming for a June opening but it looks like it may be mid-June vs. the first of. I still have a laundry list of things to do, including (but not limited to):
♥ purchasing business cards
♥ creating and having promo postcards printed
♥ buying packaging supplies (i.e. colored tissue paper)
♥ getting a ups box
♥ putting an ad on Craftster and The Sampler websites
♥ photographing product
♥ writing copy for product
♥ "about" page- copy being written by Sarah of The Small Object. Thank you, thank you!!
♥ completing website (design by Katey of One Good Bumblebee and Haha Web Design). She's awesome! :D
♥ creating special limited edition art prints for first 25 orders

I've got a pretty decent starting inventory but would love to add more. Right now I have: beaded bracelets and earrings, knit purses, knit and crocheted scarves and scarflettes, art prints, woodblock paintings, canvas paintings, felt brooches, sewn purses and pouches, and small notebooks. I would like to have postcards printed as well. Still so much to do!

Happy Birthday to a special blogging friend, Tania! You are such an inspiration and source of encouragement to me. Thank you so much. I hope you have a wonderful 30th birthday!

I'm starting a shop too! Or, i'm in the beginning stages anyway.. you give me inspiration! I'm TRYING to build the site myself.. but i believe i'm going to have to delegate that over to my hubs as i find myself either focusing on the site or my art projects.. it's very difficult to do all alone. But i am determined! :) Maybe i'll have to ask you for some advise :) you make wonderful things, i'm sure you'll be successful! i have a friend i used to work with at the congressmans office)yes, i used to do politics..yuck!) lol.. who is looking for small business grants for me.. anywho, i am soooo writing a freakin' book here.. lol.. write me sometime! :)
