Boy, it's been a while again, hasn't it? There's a very good reason for that - we moved across country! I'm out of Oregon for what feels like the first time in my life, and settled into a fabulous Victorian house in Pennsylvania. The Victorian era is one of my favorite time periods - the literature, the motifs, the architecture - and I am so glad to be the proud owner of a piece of that history.
I have my own space now for my work, instead of sharing a room with my husband's office, and I have been updating my store to get it into shape for some new pieces. This has been very time-consuming, but it's something that needed to happen!
The closing down of Tictail was ...eh, not a big blow to my shop, per se, but it's been a change. I hadn't updated my Zibbet shop in the time that I was on Tictail, because that's where I was focusing my efforts. I'm back on Zibbet now, though, and wow! There have been a lot of changes since I was last active there! Zibbet's new sales channel management looks like a game-changer to me, for the world of e-commerce. I can't wait to get my shop updated and check out the rest of what Zibbet offers.
Speaking of updating my online store, I have some super-cute pieces to list once I get the photos finished. Here's a sneak-peek:
Adorbs, right? I made matching sets of necklaces and earrings with these ceramic critter beads, and I'm figuring out a bracelet design, too.
And speaking of adorable, we have a new member of our family...
Blogger, meet Tulip! She's a sweet pittie mix that we adopted from the Erie Humane Society. Our fur-baby, Tank, passed away a month before we moved, so once we got settled in to the new house, we just had to get a new dog. Our cat doesn't much like her yet, but it's just a matter of time and patience with him - he hates everyone at first, haha.
Well, I have no idea if I still have anyone following the blog, since it's been almost a year since I last posted (whoops), so if you're out there, give me a holler in the comments!
