You may have noticed that I haven’t been posting here lately. The reason for that is because I’ve been making jewellery. This isn’t a new thing (I’ve been beading and making jewellery for a few years now). What is new is the fact that I signed up for a market in June (I don’t know; it seemed like a good idea at the time). Right now, my spare time is spent at my work table making jewellery so that I (hopefully) have enough inventory.
This will be short, since I don’t always feel comfortable marketing myself (you’d never know I went to business school, seriously).
Ahem. Anyway. I don’t talk about it much, but I make jewellery. I recently decided to try to turn it into a business; I signed up for a craft sale in June and have set up a Facebook page and all that good stuff.
Of course, trying to update said Facebook page is going about as well as updating this blog, so you can imagine how many photos have been posted :P. But, in case you’ve got some free time and want to look at pretty (and possibly shiny) things, visit my pages!
Wow, it’s been awhile. Granted, last week was spring break for Kidlet and Munchkin, so I was busy trying to keep them entertained (which, as any parent can tell you, is like a fulltime job in and of itself).
Seriously, “Mommy, I’m bored” is a terrible thing to hear, because when they’re bored, my kids decide to
invent create decorate break things. Or climb things and pretend they’re flying superheroes. (Newsflash: they’re still not related to Superman. Sadly.)
So Kidlet, my oldest, had a Mad Science birthday party this past weekend.
It was pretty freaking awesome. And I’m not just saying that because I’m a dork of the geekiest order. It was seriously awesome. We had all 22 kids sitting still and paying attention for an hour and a half. An hour and a half, you guys.
Yep, I sell Usborne Books.* As in, I’m now an independent consultant. Which means I sell through home parties and stuff. I signed up because I love books (haha, understatement) and I want my kids (and other people’s kids) to love books too. Because reading! And learning! And other things!
So, yes, I like talking about books. I like buying books. I like books, full stop.
