been a busy bee this halloween season!

*whew* need a second to catch my breath!

i've gotten a few orders for my peacock showgirl costume! SO happy!
originally i decided to stop taking order on the 11th, but i'm extending orders until  friday, the 15th.
if orders are place by the 15th, they will be received within a week, by saturday the 23rd.

hopefully, i have a chance to start my costume, lol!
then on to ordering supplies, materials and getting started for (hopefully) the holiday rush.

visit to the getty villa

a couple of weekends ago the boys parents were in town for a wedding, one of our stops on the parental entertainment tour was the getty villa in malibu, J. Paul Getty's home and final resting place. it was a beautiful saturday and perfect weather for a leisurely stroll through the villa. i was more than excited as i have not been since jr high school, the museum closed in the 90's for about ten years to renovate, etc..

needless to say his art collection is BEYOND amazing, seriously there are no words (well at least i don't have them) to describe the broad scale of ancient artifacts (truly ancient, talking year 200-300 B.C., CRAZY!) he collected over the years. it's truly awe inspiring, BUT, yes there's a but, the thing that holds this location as #1 in my heart (compared to it's newer counter part the getty center, are the soothing grounds, with their manicured gardens, detailed sculptures, calming pools, and soothing fountains.
i could spend half a day just strolling around outside.

i've attached pics below...so weird all the sickly insane artwork and jewelry i saw, and all of my images, but one, were taken outdoors.

Holiday Bootcamp - Mission Statement

i've joined the holiday bootcamp on etsy, i'm very excited to start this adventure, and look forward to the weeks to come!

My Plan:
regularly post new items
be more active on facebook fan page, blog, bootcamp forum, etc
identify and stock popular items
introduce new items into my inventory
build my supply inventory
create product at least 2x a week
get new logo/banner
work on improving packaging presentation

that's all i have so far, but this is just the beginning and i think that these are great focus points.
