Christmas in July

Many Etsians are preparing to launch an unofficial site-wide Christmas in July event. It's time to take that Handmade Pledge once again, and start stuffing those stockings early!
Itsy Bitsy Industries will be offering 50% off the entire shop for the month of July...Merry Christmas! Follow me...
Please be sure to check out my good friend Anniepoo's shop, Annie's Powder Room, too. She's a swell gal who makes the yummiest, most adorable soap you've ever seen (Little birds! Peas in a pod!) You'll find everything 30% off July 5th through the end of the month when you mention Christmas in July. Enjoy!
Are you hosting a Christmas in July? Visit the thread here and post away!

Dresses and Camera Cozies!

Here are two of my latest adventures in the studio. The dressform is just a mock-up. I've discovered that the white fabric at the skirt is entirely too shear to wear, and I'm to lazy to make a liner, so I'll have to come up with something else! The camera case was made for my good friend Charley's new Nikon...which I am so jealous of! He is letting me use it to reshoot half of my shop, though.

Things are turning around

I just got featured twice, and joined the Etsy Beagle team, made bank at the Big Art Show, had three sales in three days, and then I got a potential retail offer at a local shop. Sweet! You can find me on the Etsy Love blog and the oh-so-adorable Cupcake Bath Shoppe site. So exciting! Thanks to all for the features and success. Itsy Bitsy is going places!

Etsy is on the air!

Wow, today I got on the forums bright and early (6:30...and I wasn't even up for the baby!), and saw this thread....etsy commercial. What?! So I get my tail over to YouTube, and see this.

So exciting! I once pined for the chance to make it to the front page, but how I wish I were one of the thumbnails in that sweet Time Machine clip

I'm going to be at the third ever Big Art Show in Baltimore! It's the biggest one in Big Art Show history...three stories of art at the Load of Fun Warehouse....24-HOUR ART PARTY! Whoa! Luckily, we have an excellent family babysitter. Wish me luck! If you're in the area, please do come out. This show is going to be huge. Bands, music, art, and all the MICA students you care to shake a stick at.

Adorn is gone!

I was just alerted by a myspace buddy that Adorn has folded!
Well, it's more like she asked me (one of those random buds that you aren't too entirely sure if you actually know them or if they are just a myspace it was strange getting a random question like that). Anyway, it appears that their site is gone, their doors are closed, and there will be no more Adorn. So sad!

Sharing resources...linkage!

I've now instituted a section of handy links. See "Linkage." There's Besty, We Love Etsy, the fee calculator, and Buried Treasury. There's also EtsyBitch if you're looking for entertainment or to gripe, as well as What the Craft, Craftster, and Indiepublic if you're looking for tuts or socializing. Enjoy!
PS - If anybody has any links I should be posting here, feel free to ge in touch, and I'll add right away. Thanks!
