I have tried and tried to get into drinking tea with no luck. Even when I'm sick and my throat is soar, I would make some tea and it would just taste like dirty hot water. What's the big deal with tea?!?!? I watched a show recently on The Cooking... Continue reading

Woohoo! I recently had two Storenvy sales in one week! Ok one of them was from someone I knew but that still counts! It broke my non-selling dry spell so I'm pretty happy about that. It's giving me hope that I can totally make my Storenvy shop work if I... Continue reading
What a sweet looking pup (and that sock!). Your home looks cozy too. We go through scented candles like crazy but I may have to check out Unstoppables. :)

I know! I know! It was just over a year ago I "retired" my email newsletter because I stopped caring. The thought of putting a newsletter together every month with not much to say made me cringe, so I dumped it. I had a change of heart after reading Maker's... Continue reading

This month, two boutiques I sell my jewelry in are closing, which sucks, but that is the risk of having a b&m business. I'm just happy I was able to be a part of them. Time to move on! Recently I was approached with an opportunity to sell at a... Continue reading

I've been doing so much reading lately on developing as a business person and a better person overall and there's a lot of great material out there that makes me nod my head in agreement. I wanted to share a couple of those links today with you. The screenshots link... Continue reading

Anyone follow the Westminster Dog Show? A beagle won, her name is Miss P and she's super cute. The show was in NYC and over the weekend, I was in town to check out Meet The Breeds. It's a show you can attend and there are several booths set up... Continue reading

And when I say "Your" Etsy shop, I really mean mine ha ha! During one of my recent "oh whoa is me" phases, I decided to listen Dave's interview with digital artist John Golden for his Fresh Rag Podcast. The subject was how John was able to increase his Etsy... Continue reading

From 02/13/2015 to 02/16/2015, Storenvy will is having their Be Our Valentine Sale and Pulp Sushi is participating. Discount is displayed in the Marketplace Shop only. I've been adding more items to this shop to match the Etsy shop so if you see something on Etsy not listed in Storenvy... Continue reading

Happy Friday! Time to share what's new in the shop this week. It has been a while since I made some kitschy beaded earrings. I think seeing all this snow has got me craving for something other than WHITE! I guess I've been seeing RED. Skulls are back in the... Continue reading
One of the reasons I want a house is so I can have a coffee bar too (and a studio/office) hee hee! Such cute finds! I'm so glad you left a comment on my blog, your blog is super cute!

One of my tasks for 2015 is to revisit my Storenvy shop and stop neglecting it so much. I recently discovered that there is a super easy way to integrate your Storenvy shop to your Facebook page through your Storenvy "Merchant Admin Panel". There is a "Facebook" tab staring right...

I make jewelry, I'm a jewelry maker. Whether I am putting a charm on a chain, or intricately making a chainmail bracelet or hand-wiring a necklace, I'm still "making" jewelry. Crafter, Maker, Designer - I'm only comfortable with two of these words. "Crafter" because yeah I like to be crafty... Continue reading

Back with more items added to the shop this week. There was a break with shop updates last week because I've been re-working my Etsy listings (which I'll talk about another time). I'm still buried in the snow and got a fresh layer yesterday morning so I still have my... Continue reading
This looks great Sarah! Congratulations on your new blog!! =D

Warning: This post may not make much sense because I just need to vent. I am one of those people who does their taxes early. As soon as I get my W2s, I'm on it. Since I started my business and claimed that income (along with my expenses) on my... Continue reading

Is it art? Motivational graphics? Whatever tickles your fancy. While I was snowed in thanks to Super Blizzard Storm Juno (which was kind of a bust thankfully) and much Pinterest browsing, I started going back to older images and put little quotes over them using my trusty app from A...

Sure flowers and candy are great but that's not the way to my heart. I wanted to put together some gift ideas that will win me over if I was still single. This is by no means a hint for my boyfriend, we actually don't exchange presents on Valentine's Day... Continue reading

It's been a while since I've shared some favorite findings from the web but lately I've been reading some pretty good stuff! Updating your product photos is such a pain and something I've been dragging my feet on. I'll do a couple here and there but yeah, I can feel... Continue reading

New in the Etsy shop this week is a new line of choker necklaces featuring colorful Swarovski beads. There are eight colors to choose from. I'm also trying a new chain! I've never used a Figaro chain before but I always thought the chain was a pretty design. I wanted... Continue reading

I interrupt your week of blog reading to bring you some gift ideas for Valentine's Day from the shop. There is still some time to get your order in within the United States. Click on the images to view the Etsy items. It's all about hearts and pink and flowers!... Continue reading

A part of being on this fitness kick is I have to be mindful of what I put in my body. I'm not big on energy drinks and most protein stuff scares me. Recently while going through my daily blog reads, there was not one but TWO blogs that mentioned... Continue reading

Happy Friday! I'm back with more newness added to the Etsy shop this week. You can click on the link to view the Etsy listing. Oh my freakin' god this bracelet!!! This bracelet was made entirely from scratch. The "chain" was put together with jumprings I connected individually and added... Continue reading
This is a very cool way to plan a trip, I love this idea!

As a small business, it can be hard to turn down a custom order especially if a nice chunk of change can be made. But just like we shouldn't price our items for less just to make a quick a buck, the same applies to potential custom orders. This week... Continue reading
