Coffee Crazy Beeb Along  


Check out the new etsyBaby Treasury by ZadyBall!

So Fickle is this Etsy Pickle  


It is so funny...September has far and away been my best month on etsy, until the last day or two. My cloth wipes have been selling like gangbusters (what a weird phrase by the way...anyone know what it means?), but then yesterday and today, I feel like someone pulled an invisibility cloak over my shop, views have been next to non-existent. So strange. I suppose it could have something to do with the economy freak out...Either way, I am sure it will get better! Just means it is time to hit the sewing machine hard! Well, not literally "hit," but you know what I mean!

In other news, good news, I got into Urban Craft Uprising 2008! I am so beyond excited! It is a super huge 2 day show, December 6-7th in Seattle, WA. I applied and got in! So, it is certainly time to up the inventory....up a lot! I have heard some folks even sell out (wow, how cool would that be!)! I generlaly do very well at shows, so I am very happy! Should make for a busy fall/winter!

Autumn Affair Treasury!  


My new treasury west! After making the poster sketch, and then waiting days for a treasury slot, the main one crashed bad last night...so this am when there were Twest slots open, I decided to go ahead and post there instead. Now my search begins for the next featurees!

Northgate Family Festival  


Weel, the Northgate Family Festival was yesterday...and I can honestly say I met some great women who were vending near me, including two etsy sellers, one who is a member of etsyrain too! The weather held for us, it was nice, and most importantly not raining! yay! Unfortunately...the music, while good, was too loud to talk with cusomers most of the time(or to hear oneself think for that matter, haha) and the layout was terrible. We were in a rowofvendors, back to back, with me in the half that were facing AWAY fromt the main stage and all the entertainment, soa good portion of the festival attendees had no reason to walk past us...bummer. Besides that, most people there really weren't my target market. Oh well, you live and learn. I did make back the booth fee, so that's cool, and sold a carrier as a gift, which the gal was really excited about, so that's great too! I love to see my carriers go home with people, they are such a great parenting tool! Beyond that, I expected at least one show to be a a bit of a dud, since I had never even been to most of them i applied for, but you have to try, ya know?

So, overall, I met some great people, didn't lose any money, sold a carrier, and enjoyed the weather with my family, all in all, not a bad day!

ps-I am on my mom's comp, so no pics today, but please check out my website, if you haven't!
