Blather

So, I've been looking at possibly selling candles online and at street fairs, etc. The ones I'm looking at are soy/veg, 90% less soot than traditional candles, and all that environmentally friendly stuff that would probably make them a hit in Ann Arbor and the surrounding area. Not sure yet.

Also, I've been checking out Etsy, and will be listing stuff there soon. Be very, very careful about clicking that link. That's the kind of place where folks like Egan might go surfing and get all overcome by a fit of buy-it-for-the-babyitis and drop a ton of dough. ^_^

Omg, now I'm so tempted to check out that site... but i shouldn't, should i?

Hi Crashdummie. :) OMG it is the coolest place. I should have given a better description, too (though that would lead even more people down the path of spendiness ^_^ ) It's a place where people sell their handcrafted stuff and it is awesome -- just full of funky, quirky, lovely, amazing stuff. :)

I have another blog-friend who has gotten me interested in Etsy. I'm thinking of joining this winter...if I ever get caught up enough to craft again.

I've been to Etsy. And I have to stay away from etsy. Etsy and my wallet get a long really, really well.

Hey - we missed you tonight! But be sure to still drop by that blog sometime!! The chatbox is still up and will stay there for awhile!

Candace, that's a great site. I just bought 18 items from there. I could hardly contain myself. Now, I have my agenda for Detroit. Will I see you? That's the important stuff.

I want to find someone who makes candles entirely out of meat.

Tshsmom - isn't Etsy awesome! Winter months could be great for crafting. So are summer months when it gets all sweltery out. ^_^

Amanda - Ha! A fellow lover of Etsy. ^_^

I'm sorry I missed the shower. :( I'm bummed about that.

Jay - I wonder if I'll finish any of those things. . .

I did get the littles' room mostly decluttered today. SO that's something. :)
I attribute most of my drive to this greatly inspiring music by a guy named Hawksley Workman. ^_^

Brookem - HI!! Isn't that a scary-lovely site? Yeah, danger, danger, Will Robinson!!

Egan - Of course you will see me. Unless you keep your eyes shut. In which case, I guess you might not. If that's the case, watch where you put your hands.

Gawpo - You are MuNKi's new hero for that comment. ^_^ I'm stuck on the mental image of a meat candle. I'm pretty sure I've seen something like that up close before.

Gawpo said...

MuNKi has great taste if he likes the taste of this idea. He and I will collaborate.

Pretty soon, people all over the world will be able to exclaim, with great joy, "Hey, look! I can see in the dark and eat my fill along the way!" Totally rad, huh MuNKi?

Watch where I put my hands? Hmm, you're naughty Tall Chick.
