Pajama Day

It's such an icky day out so we're staying inside and working on things around the house. I'm trying to get more items online but then something distracts me every now and then. I though I would share a few photos of my fancier plugs with you guys today :)

I updated my etsy avatar and still need to update my banner so slowly getting things together! Also looking into other websites so I can switch to my own, of course I'll still have my etsy! But I also want to focus on selling other jewelry at reasonable prices.

Still going through stuff and cleaning :)
I figured if I'm going to start it I might as well go all out and organize everything again. I am getting rid of tons of fabric, even some decent knit I never used to if anyone is in the southeastern part of WI and would like to take advantage of some free fabric send me an email at
On the other hand I'm still holding onto some fabric I've had for at least 5 years!! Yeah I know it's kind of insane....not sure what I want to do with it but I need to do it soon so I'm giving myself a deadline for certain things. If I don't use it within the next month or so it's gone.
I am also looking at houses again (not sure if that was mentioned in any other posts) and would like to be out of my apartment by the end of my lease (July) so I def need to cut down on a lot since I really don't want to go through the hassel of moving tons and tons of crap again.
Wish me luck!!! Right now I'm at the point where I would like to get rid of 90% of my stuff and start over so if it comes down to it that may happen. I still need to get my vintage items on etsy and everything too. Ugh so much to do!

Happy late Valentines Day! Hope yours was as awesome as mine! Actually I didn't really do much of anything for v-day but I did get a special gift from a certain someone and it was totally unexpected :)

Right now I'm taking a little break from working. I'm going through one of my get rid of everything moods right now so there will be a bunch of new stuff in the shop for pretty cheap the next week or two (mostly vintage and some old stock plugs I just want to get rid of will be $7 a pair!).

I was also working on some new screens, last week I made some tiny ones (like 4x6 super cute!) that I wanted to put sizes on so I can screen sizes on my clothes rather than sewing in. The first go around of burning the screen was horrible and I had to wash them all out! Ugh and now one of them washed out already and one worked so fingers crossed the third will come out good. Now I understand far to well why some of my friends are very frustrated with screen printing at times!

Hopefully I will get some pictures up here very soon of things I have been working on. Have a good week!

Yay!!! Over 100 posts!

Okay now onto my questions for you lovely lady's that have etsy accounts and follow me. How the heck do you keep track of things?!?! I'm horrible at making logs and remembering who to contact about what. Do you have any special tips? I'm just now starting to write down etsy names and what they need/want to contact them back because I get so many convos during the week it's hard to go back and find them!
Am I the only one with this problem??? It's crazy overwhelming sometimes!

I also need to get on top of what size plugs sell more than others, it seems like I'm making an order to my tunnel supplier every two weeks! That leads to waiting for them to ship and paying for shipping. That and keeping other items in stock. After the blizzard the other day EVERYTHING was closed, I drove around like a mad woman because I wanted to get orders done but didn't have the correct supplies! Agh! I'm learning though.

Still looking into opening a brick and mortar store but I'm not the best at jumping head first into long term commitment things so we'll see. Not a problem though because I wouldn't want to start it up until late spring/early summer.

Hope you all have a great weekend! I'm off to have a sushi date tonight so that should start mine off great :)

Last night we got hit pretty bad. I stayed at my parents so we could just kind of bum around because I knew for a fact I would not be able to make it anywhere in the morning and this way Milo gets to play with his uncles. Here's a little view from my neighbor from downtown where my apartment is

It's pretty much like that everywhere. I'm going to try and relax today but I'm already feeling antsy and it's only 9:30am :/
Maybe we'll go hop out in the snow soon :) Then back to work!
