So alot of my destash was buttons that I didn't use. I used bold, big and bright buttons, so I was destashing neutrals and golds and color pallettes that just didn't look right in my shop at all. I found I was renewing stuff just to move my destash off the front page. Sales started to slug a bit and I was wondering if it was because of my destash being on my front page or something of that sort. THEN I was starting the long process of getting ready for a big move and had to start destashing some of my very own goodies! So I knew there was a lot more to go. It was time for another shop.
To be continued...

My storage table as you can see if full of insanity, all the boxes, bins and baskets on the table are custom orders I have going on. I swear my studio looks the same no matter how much work I actually get done that day! hahah!

Sometimes a white backround will clean everything up and give it a fresher, brighter look. At other times colored backround gives that knowckout punch you need! I used to be a fan of all the same backrounds for the sake of cohesiveness, but recently have begun to discover how some items truly do look better on a jazzed up backround.
Mondays are a time for me to get ready to start the week with a bang and set new goals to match! This week, I intend to blog daily, read at least 3 blogs a day from fellow bloggers too! I am hoping to close sunday with 14 sales. So off to work I go!
Have a great day Everyone and go out there and make it a great one!

It's time for me to get serious today and get some work done! I've been doing customs for the past 2 weeks and doing a lot of fooling around outside with the kids! When naptime would approach I would hop on the computer! I take a schedule to my daily life and it looks like I have to schedule my work blocks too! A schedule within a schedule sounds so rigid, but if I don't sales start slowing down and before I know it I'm just fooling around on the computer and playing Mahjong or something! hahaha!!
So today, I am going to do a little bit more of my gingerbread house for the challenge on lollishops! Then, I have to make a few earrings that I have sketched out and hopefully I can churn out a bracelet and a necklace too!! These are my latest faves in the earring department! I totally fell in love with these little birdhouses when I saw them, so I had to make something with them! I didn't like the whole plain jane look of them, so I added a heart to the front and that helped and now they are sooo fabulous! Alright off to work!

Needless to say, I'm super thrilled and hoping that this will be some great advertising!!
So i'm trying to make an ad for my new lollishop and I'm not having ANY luck at all, I have what I want right there ^ but of course no success in actually getting it to the right size or anything like that! Go figure! I also need it in a .jpg and this one is not. Oh why couldn't I be a computer genius??
Any ideas anyone?
