Tuesday Finds and Free Shipping at my Shop November 24, 2009

I have had a busy few weekends with the East Austin Studio Tour.   Thanks to everyone who came out and checked out our studio!

You know what is great about the end of November…GREAT DEALS.  I’ve got a free shipping sale going on at my etsy shop for all greeting cards.  Stock up on greeting cards and shipping is on me!

Here are a few of my favorite finds today:

It’s that time again.  I’m not sure where October went, but at least I have quite a few blog posts to show for October.

October Goals

1. Finish setting up the studio and get pictures posted next 2 weeks. Done!

2. Serious art time.  Time to get down to business! I will post my Domy Monster show monsters sometime this week.

3. Finish a supply of all greeting cards, at least 25 of each card. I definitely made a lot of cards, but I still need to make a bunch more.

4. Get photos of new stuff done and uploaded.  Here’s some new stuff right here:

 

New Happy Holidays Argyle Greeting Cards

November Goals

1. Work, Work, Work on stuff for the East Austin Studio Tour (E.A.S.T.)

2.  Finish postcards for Art Alliance Austin

That’s all I can do!

I am feeling the full swing of summertime, and all of last month’s goals went out the window.  Well…not ALL of them.

1. Work on artwork.

This is something that is my top priority right now.  Have got a few things in the works.

2. Bring 5 more of each card to Parts and Labour (on South Congress in Austin, TX).

Check!  Still need to bring more cards up there though!

3. Start Research for a business plan.

This is going to get postponed for a bit.

Are you ready for GladeMade in person?  During SxSW I will have a booth on South Congress for one day only. 

When? Friday, March 20th from 10 am-5 pm.  Note:  This handmade market will be the 19th-22nd, but I will only be there on Friday.  I don’t want to miss all the awesome music in town!

Where? Gueros parking lot on South Congress in Austin, TX

I would love it if you come by to hang out and see all the stuff.  There will be plenty of local Austin Vendors there to support.  Also Mark will be there with his new comic, TRANZ!

 

GladeMade for sale in Wimberly, TX March 4, 2009

I was minding my own business at work yesterday when I receive an email from a woman named Erica.  She saw my shop on Etsy and wants to sell my greeting cards in her new shop in Wimberly, TX.  The shop is called Fiamma Bella, and it opens tomorrow.

We end up emailing throughout the day yesterday, and last night I met up with her last night at Halcyon and gave her a whole box of assorted glademade cards for her to sell on consignment at her new shop.  How exciting!

I’ve never been to Wimberly, but Erica said about 7,000 people come in town once a month for “market day” which happens to be this Saturday.

If you ever get a chance to go to Wimberly, check it out:
