Happy New Year My Basted Friends!

4 Jan

New year! New ambitions, aye?

Well let me be that typical lazy blogger and say for one:
I WILL BE BLOGGING MORE.

(or at least I say I will…)

I am going to try to make some changes. I didn’t do too bad off last year. I lost weight, which I gained back. Oops. I did blog a little bit more, but not enough for my liking. I created my new etsy shop!

On Viva La Stitches, I have 4 items for sale.

4X4 custom

Kinda silly, but hey! They are there! I have plans of what to add onto the store. Some original pieces will be fun! I know I need to add so many things on there. However holiday hours at my work kicked my ass. Not enough alcohol could make up for 4am wake up calls!

With that, I promise to post more tutorials! Since my wedding was mostly DIY I will be making posts relating to those. I have the mini-veil tutorial one, but my wedding based tutes are seriously lackin’! I’m also sure I still have a 3rd installment of knitting gauge waiting to be written. Oops. Okay, that’s it! I am seriously putting some focus on this blog!

I also plan to be more organized. That includes tearing out and re-doing my closet! That should be fun. My whole life needs organization. I have all the apps and planners to do that. I have the resources..and some money to help with my physical things. And I have all the supplies in the world to make millions of product for Viva La Stitches! Now time to just do it!

I would like to thank everyone for their everlasting support! I truly appreciate it! All the follows, likes and comments I’ve gotten brighten up my days immensely!

Now to drink more coffee and Bailey’s while I make a way too long To-Do list!

Best,

Bre

Update: Cards, Button, Shop, Etc.

Hey Y’allllll,

So I’ve been attempting to stay somewhat proactive, while working & trying to get some product up for my new shop (Oh, plus study for cosmetology, search for a salon job, and plan a trip to Europe.) I have to say, not too shabby yet. Ha.

Here is my to come business card. Working on the headbands I’ve created, I’ve been getting tons of compliments whenever I (constantly) wear mine. I could just say “Ohh yeah check out my blog for more information” but it can be oh so forgotten. Plus I’m sick of the sloppiness of writing my URL on a post it note.

Also working on some minicard samples form Moo.com for my items that I sell on etsy. In fact, if you’re interested you can get 100 mini cards for free from them! They do have a little Etsy & Moo symbol on them, but hey, FREE! And just something I’m thinking about.

(Actually if you just google “Free Moo Cards” there’s a few things to choose from. Including..Facebook cards? Yeah I’m not sure either. Looks like they are currently doing 25% off as well.

Anyways, I did snag my business cards from Vistaprint.com since I’m on a small budget currently. They have been shipped (YAY!) and I still have a list of things to do. Hopefully sometime October the shop will be open, trust me I’ll keep everyone in the loop.

Until the shop is up, you can support by blog with this dandy button:

Yeah, it’s not the cooooolest quite, but it gets the point through, and it’s cute. Notice a theme with the picture? I’m just a tad too proud since I actually set up a lightbox area and took my own pictures. look at that, getting all snazzy like. So if you want, feel free to link this little button on your blog. I’m am also down to trading buttons. Just shoot me an email.

Happy Crafting!
