Crafty shout outs

I don’t know why I’m revamping this blog right now. This week, my whole web site is getting a makeover, so it’ll all be gone anyway (the current look of it). I’m supposed to be writing all the content for the new site tonight. Instead I’m here blogging away! Anyway, real quick – check out the new links I’ve added to “Blogs of Bliss” (the top seven). There are some good ones, like Rescue Magazine’s I Survived the Nuns and ThreadBared.

I also added Pamela Barsky, because back in our mass production days, she used to be one of our customers. She had a store on La Cienega Blvd. in Los Angeles. I remember one year, we didn’t have her holiday order ready until December 19. I called her to confirm that it was too late to ship, and she goes: “SEND IT FED EX, it’s not to late!! I’ll pay the charges!” Now that is a loyal customer!

She doesn’t have her store anymore though. For good reason, which you can see if you read her blog. Now she is on the same end as me (but on a much BIGGER level). She designs and sells housewares and gift items for all kinds of well known stores. You can see her stuff in Lucky or Real Simple Magazine. I love to read her blog because it really shows what it’s like to be on the other end of the retail game. I love her entry about how one time she sat up in bed all night and glued hundreds of barrettes together for an order. I can relate! She shares the details of working the major gift shows, the nightmares of shipping and the joy of having it all pay off. I feel honored to have had her purchase our artwork – even if it was 10 years ago!
