And then....

Hi all. I'm just stopping by to give you some quick updates.

1. I've joined with the Dallas Craft Mafia! More to come on that. I'll be attending my first meeting in a couple of weeks.
2. My Etsy shop is up and I have 10 or so items available.
3. Superchica merchandise is availabe at Make! Check out their new location...
4. The Craft Gypsies site is up!
5. I'm cutting more necklaces this week, so if you have a special request or idea for me please send me an email.
6. Bummer... I can't do the Girlie Show AGAIN this year because I have a family conflict. So, I guess I'll have to just wait until 2008.
7. I think I have a cute idea for a mini messenger bag. Stay tuned for pics. They'll be great for summer.

So that's it. Please check back often for more info and be sure to check my NEWS page weekly. :0)

Take care and I wish you an enjoyable holiday.

Uploading ain't easy.

Hey all. Well, as promised I've opened my Etsy shop, but after 3 days I only have 3 items for sale. Why? Well, because every time I try to upload my images, it won't make the connection and accept the upload. This is a bummer, because I have about 15 more items to list. I've had the problem for 2 days! I promise to keep trying and eventually I will have a fully loaded Etsy page.

This week I'm taking a Super break from Superchica. My in-laws will be visiting us and I'm going to spend this week getting ready for their arrival. After that, it's full swing again. I'm also considering finding a part-time job to supplement my income. So if you know of a position available that would suit a creative, hard working, well spoken gal that doesn't want to stand on her feet all day, please let me know.

On another note, I've designed a new website for the Craft Gypsies, but before you race to open, let me tell you it isn't up yet. You may have visited our site and found that it is "under construction" time and time again. This won't be the case for much longer. Hopefully in the next few days it will be a fully functional site. So to those that have been dissapointed, thanks for your patience.

Happy Mother's day to all the mommies.

Rain or shine.

Just wanted to say THANKS to everyone that came out to the show this past weekend. It was touch and go for a while when the rain came on Saturday, but we stuck it out and Sunday was really beautiful.

All the vendors at this last event were so talented and I was really pleased to be a part of it. I hope you were able to catch some of the great performers as well. Yes, there were a few no-shows, but over all it was a great bazaar.

Last night, for reasons unkown, my computer could not connect to the internet. So, I was not able to upload pics to my new Etsy shop. That will have to wait until tonight. I was really surprised at how many customers had not already heard of It's such a great resource for all things unique and stylish.

Check mine out in the next few days, as I add necklaces etc.

Oh, and I'll be updating my mailing list this week too. If you are not already on it, or you've recently changed your email address please contact me. I only send out emails a few times year and I promise not to share your info with anyone. It's a good way to know when and where to find me if you are interested.

Something for everyone.

It's almost 6pm and I've been working non-stop in my office since noon. Yesterday it was 10 straight hours of sewing, but it's worth it. The time passes so quickly when I'm working and I feel like the days just fly by. Before I know it, the weekend will be here and so will the Bazaar.

What's new for the Bazaar? Well, I've just made a ton of new wrist cuffs, a few new head scarves, new belts etc. In a minute I'll be back in my studio painting more necklaces and a few larger ceramic pieces. Overall everything seems to have a vintage, tattoo, rockabilly type of theme. A little edgy, but nothing serious. Just kinda quirky.

The House of Dang show was so much fun and I met several new people. Thanks to everyone that came out to support us. I sold a few of my newer necklaces and cuffs too. My wares seem to fit in pretty well with the H.O.D. vibe and I think that you may be seeing my work there in the future. (fingers crossed) If you didn't make it out and haven't been to the House of Dang, then I can tell you that it's a really funky place. It's a boutique that features vintage housewares, clothing and furniture, mostly from the 60's - 80's. Mixed in with all of that, are items from local designers as well as artwork. There is so much to see and the prices are really fair. Check it out and then have lunch or dinner at Bangkok City across the street. yum.

Back to work for me. I probably won't blog again until the night before the show or maybe even after. I hope to see you there and please stop bye and say "Hi".

Much love
