Getting Prepared

Saturday, September 26, 2009

I'm getting excited and nervous. Next weekend is my very first dabble into the craft show world. (It also happens to be my birthday!) I've been working on this for a long time so I can't tell you the satisfaction I got today when I finally did the mock ups for my table. I'm sharing a tent with my boss' mother, and I wanted my table to be full, so I chose a small table instead of a larger one. I'm worried it's TOO full though... is there such a thing? Would you feel comfortable picking up and looking at everything on the table? I actually have even more product I didn't have room for... which is okay by me. I'm off to finish sewing my table cloth!

ps. That random hair clip and those little speck things (from where I tore the moss in the flower pots) won't be there!

Weekend Deals

Thursday, September 24, 2009

I got a handy dandy email today that told me that I was chosen to be featured in this weekend's edition of Etsy's Weekend Deals! The 'deals' should be posted tomorrow. I'm having 15% off my entire shop in honor of my birthday which is next weekend! I'll be doing a craft show on my actual birthday at Biltmore Lake, so if you're in the Asheville area, come say hi and buy some discounted hair accessories! (You can also get the discount in my etsy store by putting "Weekend Deals" in the message to seller section at check out! )
Now I thought I'd post some fun pictures from a few weekends ago when I took Thimble Kiss to new extremes: Whitewater kayaking! Okay, so my kayak was only inflatable, but it was still important to look stylish on the river! The wet suits made that kind of hard.

The Touch, The Feel of Cotton...

Tuesday, September 15, 2009

Okay, so I'm sure everyone has seen this cotton commercial staring Zooey Deschanel. I LOVE it. I love her. She can sing, she can act and she is engaged to the lead singer of my favorite band. If you haven't seen the commercial, here it is!

I am going to get my hair cut Friday and I'm thinking about stealing her look. Its not so far or a stretch from where I am right now, just some more shaping, but I love it. I'll actually have to curl my hair to get the waves, but its worth it! How cute is she?!
Her retro pics are my favorite, and even though I'm not going short, these are still great looks!

Goth Treasury

Saturday, September 12, 2009

Here is a picture of a treasury I was featured in today! Its a red and black goth treasury. Interesting... hopefully with Halloween I'll get some sales! = ) Thanks so much to WickedDarling! <--- Go check out their shop!

Included in another treasury!

Wednesday, September 9, 2009

Here is a screenshot of another treasury Thimble Kiss was featured in! Thanks to .RetroAttack for including me! (I now realize I should have taken screenshots of the last few I was in including the one I made because once they're expired they're gone forever!)

(Click to enlarge!)

The piece that is featured in this treasury is one of two that I have done as part of a limited edition fall collection. This piece and its partner can be seen HERE and HERE! Let me know what you think.

An Exciting Day!

Saturday, September 5, 2009

Today has been a great day! First, I was reading through my google blog reader and happened to see on The Storque, Etsy's blog, that I was featured! I totally freaked out! You can see the feature here:LINK!

I also managed to get and create my very first Treasury on Etsy today! You can see it here! Link 2! Its all about Alice in Wonderland. I'm really happy with how it turned out

I came up with some new hair accessories I'm in love with and got to go to the fabric store. It was a great, great day. Tomorrow is going to be filled with pictures I feel!

Shhhh... its quiet in here!

Wednesday, September 2, 2009

So it has been a little quiet on the blog front. Its not because there hasn't been anything going on, I assure you!

This past week I really got started in my classes for this semester. I go three nights a week after work from 6-9pm. That is after I have been at work since 7:30am. Its EXHAUSTING!

Along with class, this weekend my mom was here for a long weekend. It was great to see her and spend some quality time together. When I go home to visit Savannah, usually I end up splitting more time with my friends than my mom and she's awesome about that. She wants me to spend time with them because it makes her happy to see me happy... how great is she?! It was great to just go out shopping and blow a ton of money with her though. We also had a few really great meals together which is always good!

As for Etsy, I made my first sale this week!!! I'm so excited. Its a custom alteration of one of the pieces in my shop and she wants it for her wedding which is so flattering! Hopefully she'll send me some great pictures too.

How has everyone been? Its crazy how quickly the summer is running out the door. I'll be sad to see it go.
