I didn't realize it had been so long since I blogged. Time can certainly get away from you.

Well the sirens went off yesterday but we didn't get much storm damage. Friends and family across the area are safe as well. Mother nature can be a real bitch sometimes though as seen in the Fenton area. The storm damaged the local fire station and one of the schools. Only minor injuries were reported so my next thought was the kids thinking that they don't have to go to school next week and in my minds eye I could see them dancing in the street.

HelloKnitty in NYC

I get to go to the Big Apple next month and teach a class at the Etsy Labs on my techniques for reusing plastic grocery bags. Here is the link to the listing.

I hope anyone in the area who can come will check it out. I am excited to meet some of my fellow Etsians and see the Labs for the first time. It would be great to have a full class. Hope to see lots of you there.

More Wonderings

I am always wondering about something and today I began to wonder what I should do with all the stuff I didn't sell last winter. I listed some of my baby and toddler hats on my websites but if they didn't sell last year, why do I think that they will sell now? At the end of the season last year I gave away a lot of hats to a charity but I really need to sell some. What makes one item sell better than another? I have a bunch more hats and some scarfs and I know I shouldn't just make more like them if they are not going to sell. I need something new to give family for the holidays this year too. They all have more knitwear than they will ever wear as it is. Time to do some polls and some brainstorming.

I wonder...

Where is the line? I need to spend time on the computer to help sell my craft, but I need to make stuff to sell. I don't know where the line is when I spend too much time at the keyboard or not enough. I have one special order to do and I am trying to start making the stuff I want to push during the holiday season. I have some great ideas for my mitten pets but there are none as of yet to feed. I guess it is time to get back to work and stop drooling over that new avatar guy.

The Show

So here I am with Carlos Mencia and my Etsy dress I made special for the occasion. There are more pics on my flickr link. We had loads of fun, my son and I. Laughter truly is the best medicine.

Late night doings

This is what happens when you live Etsy day and night. I was up late last night trying to figure out what I am going to wear to the show. I wanted to advertise Etsy and this is what I came up with, after all it is a comedy show.
