OK, I admit it- I spent my 'buy some beads' money on this wacky interwebs t shirt. Now I need to recruit people to help me out on bead money.

All Natural is Bad! Yay for common sense and knowing how to make soap.

The White House is planting its own Victory Garden. In this time of pain and bad economics, let's reach out and garden. When I was in college, we had a garden. We produced organic greens and carrots. You can donate community garden veggies to the hungry, you know.

My necklace was featured! Woot! But sadly, I don't think it's polymer clay, is it? I don't actually have that necklace anymore. I sold it to someone.

BTW: artfire only has 500 of those $7 accounts left. Need to beef up my inventory on all counts.
Matt talks about the 'confusion' on the billing.
Frowning yarn will make you pay your bills!

Yay, I'm featured in a new blog!

Time to update the press page.

I've been sick for over a week, so my production and promotion have slacked off, but I still found the energy to create a new spotlight.

And of course, obligatory etsy thread.

Verybigjen's got a bone to pick with etsy.
Find out if you're in the treasury or the gift guides.

Best thread ever.
Has Vistaprint scammed you? Sue them then.

Admin removing posts on etsy.
This blog's personality type:

ESTP - The Doers

The active and playful type. They are especially attuned to people and things around them and often full of energy, talking, joking and engaging in physical out-door activities.

The Doers are happiest with action-filled work which craves their full attention and focus. They might be very impulsive and more keen on starting something new than following it through. They might have a problem with sitting still or remaining inactive for any period of time.

My personal type is INFP.

Etsy tries to change the search system up. Note that this would not have been implemented if we spent all our time trying to flatter the admin.

I'm creating a press page for my website as well.

I made a byhand spotlight- luck of the irish to you!

Today I experienced a cultural clash. Me and my relatives were trying to buy a pair of shoes for our grandmother- and sadly, on that side of town[in Whitehaven], half the stores we passed were closed because it was Sunday. Us shop all weekers were quite disappointed!

The picture illustrating this is a treasury I am in.

Now, sadly, I must deal out some reality cupcakes[although coldstone creamery is selling real cupcakes. I must buy some]

You know, the whole staying positive thing annoys me. I can see someone saying I'm trying to stay positive if their mom has cancer or they are addicted to drugs, but yeah, sometimes in business, we don't sell as much as we'd like. It's no biggie.

And really folks, please please please spend more time trying to figure out how the internet works than telling us all how to be. OK?

I love twitter. I use it as a combination slow IM, feed poster and reader, blog, and advertisement place. I use it as slow IM because the @replies mean that I can carry on a conversation over a period of hours, folks just chiming in whenever they have time. I also can chat with ten people at the same time, easily. I love talking to people on the internet.

I also use it to publish my feeds using twitterfeed, which means that every time I post a new blog post, a new etsy item or a new website item, people are alerted. I also use it as a feedreader, as my local newspaper posts breaking news and today's headlines on its twitter.

I also use it as a mini blog, for things that don't really require a whole blog post, but may interest others. I will also advertise, by randomly saying hey, I have a sale on it. I love multiuse internet thingies!

Yay! I'm featured on indie finds! Thanks folks!
Dear readers, what do you think about blogs devoted to calling out other etsy sellers? Right now, I feel sort of awkward about it.

Chocolatier 3 is FINALLY on big fish games. With the game club, bigfish is cheapest, but it does sometimes take a long time to get some games.

BTW: look at this video I found:


Look at that person's blog.

Etsians protest against harassing convos.

I need to post my backstock. I only have about ten items that I need to list, but it seems like a huge task.

I have had problems buying from artfire lately. Paypal always says the address for the seller is wrong. ArtfireJohn says some guy will fix this.
