Ok I have been in a blah mood for the past two days. Some one please come kick me in the butt and get me to wanting to make things. LOL.
All I can manage to do is turn my machine on look at it sew for about an hour and then that is it.
Fortunately I dont have any order waiting at the moment, but still I want to sew I just cant. So someone put a carrot on a stick and dangle it in front of me or something.
I think I have mentioned 1000markets.com before.
Pretty sure I have. LOL
Anyways I am excited, I am starting to make sales on there. I mean it is great to make sales anywheres. But I really like the fact that I am making sales on there because it means we are getting more customers into the site. LOL
The site is only about four months old. I have been on there for four months. Dont think I have been there since the begining, but fairly near the first part of it. LOL.
So anyways, I love the site, I mean literally love the site, I cant find anything to complain about it. Just things to complain about myself. LOL>
I really cant wait for us to go live. The site is awesome, I suggest that you as a buyer or seller come check it out. What is there to loose, a few minutes in your day? I promise you will not regret it.
and my link
Here is one of our newer members, Barretzz - she makes the cutest little baby shoes ever. Or at least that is my opinion. LOL. I am sure once you see these you are going to agree and love them too. I just wish I had a baby to put them on now. LOL.
Well here we go with the questions
When did you first start your craft, and what made you want to try?
I started doing the hairclips last year, for a friend that always complains about not finding 'cute' barrettes for her little one. From there to this point, it has been an experimenting road. The shoes came from a pattern my mom had from the '70's - which I updated a little - and now they are everywhere!
What do you love the most about the items you make? *
The detail that I have to give them. I love the thought of little feet, little people in them.
Can you tell us a little bit about yourself?
I'm Peruvian, but came many years ago to get my Master's degree in Architecture, got a job and stayed here. I am a part time architect, and part time crafter for the mayority of my time, and the remaining time is for my family and friends.
How about your favorite color?
My favorite color is orange.
What is something you really want to try making?
I'll love to learn to work with glass. I've always been curious about the material. I love stained glass, blowned glass.. everything in glass basically.
Are there any other craft fields you dabble in?
I know how to do Tiffany lamps with glass, I also do needle work, embroidery, paint, drawings.
I've been doing something with my hands and creating something since I was a little one.
What brought you to 1000Markets?
I read an article in Trunkt recomending the site. It's been a great finding!
If you could give 1 piece of advice to somebody just starting in your field, what would it be?*
Patience. Sells will come, you will get notice. It just takes a lot of patience and love for your craft.
since I last posted.
I dont know where I have been, LOL.
Well biggest news ever: Hubby lost his job.
It really sucks because they told him he was going to be cut because of the economy and get a severance check. Alright that is fine with us, right! Now they are telling us no he got fired because of the performance of his employees (He was the manager of a computer tech company). So no severance check. Alright then. We will live off of our savings for a while.
Not a problem.
So any how we are having tons of fun.
Playing in our vegetable gardens getting them ready for the new growing season. Planting all our seeds that we have been stocking up on for the last year or so.
Went to the zoo yesterday, boy was that fun and it turned out even better when we got there because it was a free day. Didnt know that at first. Coool Beans. LOL.
Davin loved it, he hasnt been there since he was 2 and not sure if he remembers it but he loved seeing all the animals. either tonight or tomorrow night we plan to take him to the natural science museum to see the dinosaur bones.
And more work on the gardens. hehheehehe. So bad thing happened but good things are coming out of it.
NOw if only he can find a better job nearer than the 60 mile drive to near the intercontinnetal airport like before. LOL
