Well, neither Jaine nor I have posted in a while. Don't worry though, we haven't completely fallen off the face of the Earth. Both of us have been pretty busy with school/life/work. Hopefully after winter break we will have new items posted on our etsy...maybe even some of which are screen printed!

Also as this is our craft blog I believe that it is important for all of our dedicated readers (harhar) to know that last week I super glued my fingers together. It was awful! Luckily, there was plenty of acetone in the print studio.

First Friday went really well! We sold almost half of our stuff, and we were able to donate almost 100 dollars to the Greensboro Animal Rescue and Foster Program.
AND!!! We were interviewed for the Carolinian.
But, thats not all! Someone from Sisters (a local shop in greensboro) told us that they were looking to carry more local/handmade items. Then she asked us how we would price if we were to sell in bulk, and that if the owner was intrested then they might want to carry our pins! EEK!

SO MUCH TO DO & Janie's Thoughts on Packaging

The First Friday Indie Market that Boy Killaz is participating in is coming up this week!

Morgan and I have been making things non-stop, we are gonna take some pictures soon, so be ready for that!

Also, I just want to say that it is really frustrating to order something off of Etsy and the seller literally just sends you the item in an envelope.

Etsy is a site for selling handmade items, items that are PERSONALLY made and should have some PERSONALITY to them. If you don't care about what you make, then don't sell it!
And don't send it to me without a thank you not, some kind of cool packaging, or stickers or something!

I'm not saying you have to go all out when you send something in the mail, but a thank you note is nice.

We always make our own boxes or padded envelopes to send our things in, and no matter what we write a thank you note to let the buyer know we really do appreciate them helping out our store.

I think that is really important--let your buyers know you like them, ok?
