I was in denial. Every time I heard about the cost of shipping going up January 17, 2016, I just covered my ears and said "Lalalalalalalalalalala!!!!" I was getting the emails from Etsy, who has done a good job making sure Sellers were on top of this, I just didn't want to deal. This morning I sucked it up and updated the shipping in my shop. If you live in the United States, you won't see that much of a... Continue reading

I hate feeling censored. Seems like the only people who get to say what they want are Politically Correct losers or whack jobs like Donald Trump. Oh is my use... Continue reading

Let's start the new year with some good news! I marked down all of my charm necklaces in my Etsy shop to $16.00!! This is not a sale, no coupon code needed! Valentine's Day is just over a month away and a piece of jewelry always makes a nice gift. Give your partner a poke in the arm and tell them a cute charm necklace would make a nice gift....and dinner, don't forget dinner. So head on over to pulpsushi.etsy.com... Continue reading

It was a slow build but it finally escalated in 2015 and almost turned me off from blogging COMPLETELY. What is "It" you ask? It was seeing several bloggers telling... Continue reading

Well here we are. Another "New Year's" post where I set my intentions for the upcoming year. I have absolutely NO GOALS planned for my blog or my jewelry business. Neither are closing, but I am completely burnt out. I think about improving my running more than what I should make or blog about. Since Fall 2015, I have been wondering what I was going to do with my business? I thought I would lay low over the Summer but... Continue reading

I know! I said I was signing off for the rest of the year but I'm currently reading The Heart of the Buddha's Teaching: Transforming Suffering into Peace, Joy, and Liberation and read the above quote last night and it really struck me so I wanted to share. Sounds so simple doesn't it? For some people it is easier to approach each day like this, for me it's hard, really hard. Too busy thinking about what I still need to... Continue reading

I don't know about where you are but here in New York, it doesn't exactly feel like Christmas time. We're expecting 70 degrees on Christmas Eve which bums me out. I'd like just a little more chill and crispness in the air. It makes enjoying some Hot Chocolate that much richer. Overall it has been a lovely December. I celebrated my 40th birthday back on the 19th and had some friends over. It was so fun! We went overboard with... Continue reading

Last Saturday was my last Holiday Craft Fair of the year. I was one of the organizers of this show being one of the leaders of the Hudson Valley Etsy Team. It was our seventh year having it at The Howland Cultural Center in Beacon, NY. It was a good day, I always have a blast spending the day in this space and catching up with friends, teammates, and the folks of Beacon who love to stop by. I took... Continue reading

What a busy Thanksgiving weekend! Thanksgiving this year was a complete contrast to last year where we were buried in snow. This year was unseasonably warm in the lower 60s so it was a good time to visit the city. We headed down Wednesday afternoon and went to check out the Thanksgiving Day balloons get inflated. I've lived in NYC all of my life and never got to do this. It's such a New York thing to do, I had... Continue reading

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! This may be the 3rd time I am sharing this Snoopy image but I can't help it, I love it so much. I just watched this other night and I love how all those freeloaders show up and they get toast and popcorn while Snoopy had a big-ass turkey sitting in his dog house waiting for everyone to leave. That's right Snoopy! Although Woodstock is so tiny, how was he able to eat all of that food?... Continue reading

No shop, jewelry, or social media talk today. This month makes ONE YEAR since I went out for a walk one Monday morning and I started to jog! I haven't talked about it lately but I'm still on this fitness kick going out just about every morning to go walking/jogging/running, I wish there was one word to describe what I do..."WaJoRu?" Sure why not? My cardio has gotten SO much better! I was worried I might be pushing myself too... Continue reading

How dope is this flier??? That's right, I said DOPE! This is the flier for this year's Holiday Craft Fair hosted by the Hudson Valley Etsy Team. It is one of my favorite shows to do even though I'm heavily involved in the planning, it's still a lot of fun! Have you ever tried to plan a craft fair? It's a lot of freakin' work! We are back at The Howland Cultural Center once again, such a cool place! Here's... Continue reading

When asked which are my favorite form of Social Media to use for my business, I always say my top three are Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest - in that order. Twitter and Instagram mainly because I can access both on my phone which I admit I check a lot and can do quickie updates when something comes up. It's great for sharing "behind the scenes" content. TWITTER Twitter continues to be my favorite way to stay tuned-in with what's going on.... Continue reading
