This Marketing Fiasco

Ah, yes. Christmas is nearing and I am trying to evaluate my shop's visibility. And I have none. So, the next few weeks will be some of SEO research and advertising.
I have many new pieces and most of my bonsai trees are birthstones, making them ideal birthday gifts.

Many more to come!

I'm gonna wash that bad right outta my hair...

I just received my package of shampoo & conditioner from Toadstool Soaps. I couldn't wait til tomorrow, so I used it tonight & wow! This stuff is awesome. The shampoo is so softening, I didn't really need the conditioner, but used it anyway. I got the Nag Champa scent & it smells just like the incense sticks, but after I dried my hair, the scent remained pretty strong, yet not overpowering. I HIGHLY recommend Cheryl's products and she was very accomidating to make conditioner to match the shampoo with great communication through the process. Ditch your commercial hair-ruiner and buy from Cheryl!

Change is here & I'm rollin' with it...

I'm really pleased that Barack was elected and am watching the world embrace the idea. It's inspiring me to not fear the changes in my life and take some chances. I've wanted to get back into writing music again so maybe this new affection for moving forward will push me along in that, too.

Today I'm researching new products for my shop that I will be working hard to get done for the holidays. Bonsai ornaments & layered wall art are a few of the ideas brewing. Keep checking back here and in my Etsy shop for these positive 'changes' and keep smiling!
