Knot! News - Weekly Update
Item: First, I have decided to try something new - a weekly update on Fridays so I can put all my news in one easy to find spot. Provide a little consistency. Consistency? From me? Well, I know it is a lot to ask of myself, but let's try anyway.
Item: I have been offering my micro macrame jewelry kits in customizable form. However, since I have increased the number of patterns and kits and will continue to do so, I cannot continue with this. It is becoming unwieldy and time consuming to keep track of it. So, from now on, I will make up some kits and list them as is. (see example "KIT of Materials - Spirals Anklet or Bracelet in Yellow" in photo at right). That way, I will have them on hand to pop into an envelope for shipping. You may contact me for special requests and I will see what I can do. I have already edited all the kits in my Etsy shop (except for the key chain kits - I will get to them later).
Item: I am having trouble adjusting my sleep schedule to fit in with my partner's transfer to day shift. Traditionally, I am a night owl, so it is hard. I love to stay up late and then sleep in. With him on day shift, this is troublesome. Wish me luck...
Item: I have applied for a space at a brand new show in San Antonio, The DIY Factory . It sounds like it could be fun and perhaps profitable. I need to get the word out, so here goes. It will be my first official show as KnotGypsy (except for setting up at Trade Days here in Seguin). This means I must get some display equipment together and get my inventory ready. I have my work cut out for me.
Item: Sorry, I have not made any progress on the website since last Sunday. Too many distractions this week. (Bella is doing better, but still needs to get some dental work done in a couple of weeks).
Item: I reviewed another move "The Devil's Advocate" on my "Beading with Netflix" Squidoo lens. I enjoyed the movie enough to watch it twice before sending it back.
That's the news for KnotGypsy this week. "Good night and have a pleasant tomorrow..."
