software update

I’m going to update this software, so you may see the site offline for a bit.  If all goes well it should be back online shortly.

Looking for input and a giveaway!

I don’t know if there are any knitters or crocheters out there reading this, but if there are, I have a couple of questions for you. I’m looking for some items to make with my polymer clay, that are not too time consuming.  While it is not by any means a new idea, it is new to me, so I thought maybe, stitch markers. I knit myself, although it has been a while since I made something that required a stitch marker.  But I have several sizes of needles I could gauge the ring…

Updated code, and my Smoosher’s entry

I think IE should now be able to see this site without choking. I’m a little embarrassed to say it was bad coding on my part, and apparently FF and Chrome just “knew” what I was getting at, while IE was taking things literally. With the help of my mother-in-law, who I am quite grateful for saving me the headache of figuring out what went wrong, all should look good now.  Can’t promise anything in older browsers, but the up-to-date ones should be good to go. ArtFire…

Fixer upper

Don’t mind if this place looks amiss… Attempting to fix some code.

My apologies to IE users

I know this blog looks like utter crap in Internet Exploder.  (sorry - Internet Explorer). Suffice to say - I code on an iMac, using Firefox & Chrome as the browsers that I spot-check my coding work with.  The only time I ever use IE is for the day job, where that is the IT department’s ‘authorized’ browser of choice - and even then I only use it for one website.  For all else I use Firefox.  I really, really avoid IE as if it were a plague. I may or may…

Happy holidays and ringing in 2011

So I have once again fallen away from posting anything.  That tends to be my cycle - go gung-ho into it, and post post post, then dwindle off until a month goes by before popping back in to say something.  I used to blog pretty regularly a few years ago.  I don’t know if my tendencies to slack off about this whole thing now is simply being bored with it, or if I’m just overly cautious since this place is more or less the face of my itsy bitsy business and I’m…

Holiday Scavenger Hunt

The Polymer Clay Smooshers’ guild is having a Holiday Scavenger Hunt!  Visit our guild’s blog for further details - there are prizes to win! In a nutshell, several of guild members have placed an icon in our studios.  Starting from our guild blog, visit each of the studios and start hunting!  Who knows, you may even come across a studio that creates items that catch your eye, and maybe you’ll see something that you just have to get someone as a gift for…

Off to the Beach

Don’t I wish.  I haven’t been to the beach in a couple of years, we live too far away for it to be a frequent visit.  But I definitely want to go back sometime.  My family, which included my husband, my daughter, my husband’s mom and myself, went out to San Diego when my daughter was two and a half years old.  We visited the beach the evening we arrived, so it was my daughter’s first time seeing and stepping foot in the ocean. She was a bit hesitant…

In need of inspiration

So I’ve finished thirty-two more pumpkin pie slice charms like these: (some with and some without whipped topping).  I haven’t photographed them yet, the whipped topping on some is a little different and I used copper for the wrapped loops on some of them as well, but they’ll be available for the asking when I increase the quantities on my listings. Currently I have some ice cream cone charms in the oven, we’ll see how those turn out.  I have to admit, I…

Last chance for $5.95 a month studio at ArtFire!

Ok folks, today is the last day you can opt-in to get an ArtFire studio for only $5.95 a month for as long as you want it!  Tonight at midnight Arizona time (currently the same as PDT) they’ll be activating this deal, and after that the price will go back up (I think it is $15.95/month after that).  Don’t miss out! Just a reminder - listing 30 items at Etsy - and not re-listing them a few days later - will cost you $6!  So having a studio at ArtFire is a huge benefit,…
