KnotGypsy's Status Report

Today, I thought it would be useful (for me at least), to take stock. It has been such a frenzy around here, my partner thinks I am obsessed. Or possessed. He is not sure which.

Well, first thing: The test phase of my first tutorial is nearly finished. I am awaiting the rest of the feedback from my volunteers. It should be in production the end of next week or so.

I have the photography done on my next tutorial " Spirals Key Chain". It will be especially good for Beginners. Here is the finished key chain I made for the tutorial.

This will be a great project for Beginners. It is a simple, easy to make project using a heavier gauge cord than usual for my micro macrame projects. The beads are fewer, and larger for easier handling while practicing the knots needed for this fob. Yet, there is a lot of room for creativity. I will include tips for variations at the end of this tutorial. I anticipate it to be finished in a week or so.

I am also working on that sub-domain for the do-it-yourselfer's and have it mostly laid out. I'll post the url when I have the site done.

My big push right now and for the next several weeks will be to get more tutorials done. Also to get that sub-domain site up.

I continue to work on networking and have come up with some leads. More on them once I learn more.

Trade Days did not result in any sales, but I did get to give out my card to several people. My showcase on Etsy got me some exposure, but alas, no sales.

Once I get some cash flow, I want to buy the beads for a big project. Remember when I told you about Scarlet not letting me sleep? See the last half of bloggerie (start where the red dragon icon is sitting) "Photos As Promised" Well, the big project is based on that night's inspiration. I have long wanted to do a big project such as this, and hope I can get the beads soon. No, I won't tell you any more than this. You will just have to wait. Scarlet said so.

Well, I have some Tortilla Soup simmering on the stove and so I must leave you now...
