News and Upcoming

Most of you do not know this, but its time to put the word out. I no longer work at CSSI. Therefore, I am searching for new employment, though first I have to decide what I want that employment to be. If you have any ideas, leave a comment or send an email. Thanks!

Now, onto the fun stuff.

I have had an Etsy account and an empty shop for years now (since November 2005, right after they started), and have decided to really try my hand at crafting for sale. The product line, at this point, will include record bowls, woven flowers, coasters/mug rugs and spiral notebooks. The notebooks are the things that I am most excited about, as I have some great ideas for them and a coil binding machine (manual punch, electric roller insertion) on its way from Canada, and supplies on order from a US vendor. As much as eBay is annoying, you can get good deals there with a lot of effort (and the help of eSnipe).

You can help me out in a number of ways, some of them right now, and others in the future (watch this space!).
  1. Go to my etsy shop here: Bee-Ewe-Tee-Full Creations and "heart" me to put me on your favorite shops list.
  2. I have a logo of sorts that I have used in the past for tagging items under this name. If you are able to help, I need some graphic design help, once I scan in the sketch that I do. I've got that covered at a friend's house.
  3. If you have any sort of interesting stuff you think I should use as notebook covers, old vinyl records or unused paper (blank, lined, gridded, colored, etc...), let me know and I probably will make it into stuff.
  4. When the binding machine gets here, I will be more than happy to beat Kinko's price and make your books for you! The thing needs to earn its keep, even if it is making workbooks and marketing material, or securing your knitting pattern booklets.
  5. There will be some naming contests coming up on this here blog! With prizes!
I think that 5 ways to help are enough for now. Tell your friends, and keep an eye out on my pages.

(No, I have no great ideas, but if you have free time, come visit Pittsburgh--I have a guest bed!)
