So, the new year rang in more new things. I have still been hoping to generate some new income that wasn't all stitching or typing. A little smaller, more, compact, "easier"(lol) ideas. So I signed up with Jamberry. These are nail art wraps to cut to fit your nails. Think vinyl with adhesive. So with a little hair dryer heat, and snip of some scissors, you can have pretty little art on your fingers and toes, that last about two weeks. There are several other nail items, including polish, vitamins, a box of the month, etc. Even matching sets for kids! And of course, you can sign up to sell, as well--no inventory to keep, other than your sign up start. It seems cute, fun, and reasonably priced. Since I started with the late winter season, I got a lot of catalogs for the winter, and the spring ones are already in progress. So, email me, and I will send you a free catalog and a sample nail, in the US. That will be good permanently, any catalog I have on hand, going forward. And I am on Facebook, too, I will have some updates there from time to time.
New starts for cross stitch. I started QS Chocolate, Chocolate, and More Chocolate, HAED, Randal Spangler piece. It was what I had handy, but not what I planned on working on. It was going well, until I got a cold, and pinched a nerve in my neck. I put it down for a while. And I have gotten kitted materials for the HAED freebie SAL, doing the QS Frogs Kissing. I have just barely put any stitches in it, so not much to see there.
I am also beginning the official descent on selling beads. It will take some time, doing it properly. I will still list some Swarovski crystals and sterling silver findings, I think, as a newer switch, for a while, since I have people still looking for bead items. But I am dropping the standard fire polish and delicas, etc that I have had cluttering the store for forever. It's time to make room on ebay for the cross stitch pieces.
