All Over The Place




Happy Monday sunshines.

what? you say, happy Monday?

Yes, it is a very happy Monday, because you know what I did yesterday.....I finished the Federal taxes for Bubs and I.

Nothing makes me feel smarter, or really dumber than filling out the cursed 1065 Form...

but it's done, and it will be the last time for that stinking form as we are no longer business partners in the Ye Olde Midgard Comic Shoppe (I typed that the way it would be seen on a sign at a Ren Fair).

so with taxes now almost off my mind (I still have state taxes to do) I was able to work on cleaning and organizing my studio/work space, and you know what?

I have a ton of stuff, most of it I don't use, so I decided to open up a secondary Etsy shop in order to sell supplies and vintage stuff along with collage packs filled with papers and pictures. I just opened it yesterday so please understand the empty nature of the shop...also big huge thanks to Gillian for being my first customer at Chateau Stiletto.

Oh, I forgot to mention how cool Friday was....I ended up on the Home Page of etsy, thanks to Cat or as a lot of you know her, Artsy. She made the treasury list that was chosen for the page.

So here's a big giant shout out and virtual kiss for Cat (oooh, say that out loud, "kiss for cat"...that has a pretty sound to it).

Oh, and I got an issue of Russian Vogue in the mail this weekend (I have been anticipating this, ever since I hot "buy now" on ebay). All I have to say is wow...

no, strike that...WOW!!!!!!!!!

It is amazing, sure I can't read Russian, but you don't need to, the photos are incredible, there are so many images that you ballet and dance as their inspiration, and some of the models are actually dancers...

and the photos...the photos are beautiful, very artistic, I am afraid that after Greek Vogue, Russian Vogue and the army of foreign fashion magazines that have been coming my way, well I am afraid I am a bit spoiled. I even whined to my bubs that there was "no way I can go back to American Vogue now!!"

He just sort of looked at me and said that I should save it for my blog....so I did, and now I am unleashing it on all of you. Sorry.

Oh, this entire entry is all over the place, no theme, just a bunch of stuff being thrown at you....I wish I could have thought this out better so it would have been a more enjoyable read for you.

alas, my brain is not functioning on that level right now, I had a restless night's sleep after having nightmares, all night. Don;t fret none, these were not even bad nightmares, just stupid stress dreams, about me dealing with non paying buyers on etsy (which I am dealing with another small plague of them right now), and I also had a dream that some strange fat man tried to touch me...

oh well.

I guess I should take a minute and talk about a special sale I am having, I have already announced it to all the people who have bought from me in the past, but I will take a second and share it all with you.

I am having an Anniversary Sale, as at the end of this month I will have been on etsy 1 year, I will be taking 20% off everything in my shop until April 26th (my anniversary date), just use the code anniversary07 in the message to seller section and wait for a new invoice.

enjoy the pictures today, they are some of the latest pieces in my shop and I will be listing more blocks today.

xoxo

Congrats on the front page again!

Your new shop looks beautiful. Good luck with it! Your supply shop looks better than my jewelry shop. lol.

Yay for Russian Vogue! I must get myself one so I can see the pretty pictures.

Oh, I'm sure that the Russian Vogue is just amazing. I have always wanted an Italian, French and Japanese Vogue but have not endeavoured to add them to my collection yet. Will do so at some point in future.

Hooray for getting the taxes done! I know what a relief that is!

xo,

YAY! Yay for front page and becoming a Russian Vogue Convert. We Russian Vogue readers are amongst the coolest of the fashion world wannabes. I will have to warn you that occasionally it is a miss, once in awhile it gets stuck on stereotypical Russian fashion with gaudy gold, fur, and sleazy leopardprintness, being Russian myself, though, I still love it all.

Your new shop looks great. I just cleaned out my little work area and am wondering if I should open a supply shop too.

Congrat's on the taxes! You deserve some free time to enjoy your Russian Vogue now.

Hey! Everything looks great. I love the stuff in the 2ndary shop. And Russian Vogue--you had to buy that off Ebay? I bet it's amazing. I might have to go buy me some Russian Vogue!
And congrats on the taxes.
Ugh. Just the word "taxes" makes me want to throw up...

i like the idea of a second shop too, i think it would be a great idea, especially for those items that differ greatly from our regular fare. i might be considering this now..........mm, more fees:)))hehehe.

and of course i adore your latest works....i am also awaiting that awesome potential collaboration with the ever-creative mean cheese:)
but until then,, good luck with the sale!!!

I must say, you've really piqued my interest in foreign magazines... I mainly just look at the pictures anyway, so I don't think it would matter that I couldn't read them.

I commend you for cleaning up your work space - it's something I've been needing to do, but find every excuse not to!
