Not Enough Hours in the Day!
There are definately not enough hours in the day for me to get everything done that I'd like to--and as a result I am now guilty of blog neglect! I'm back this morning (better late than never) with a SmuTopia status update and lots to talk about :)
The Designers' Downtown Market May show took place last Saturday--we had lovely weather (with just a few problematic gusts of wind) and a good turnout. SmuTopia had a great show, complete with my very first on-site credit card transactions! I signed up for ProPay, which allows you to enter the transactions online through a web form, and processed the transactions right there on my iPhone :)
I've also been spending as much time as I can find at the torch practicing my lampworking skills! I must say that lampworking is highly addictive and I can never find as much time to play with glass as I would like :) The deal I have with my hubby is that I must exercise and water my flowers before lighting up the torch--which has turned out to be great motivation for both running and watering!
The last thing I want to mention is a recent Etsy milestone--SmuTopia just passed 300 sales on Etsy!!!! Hooray! I'm thrilled with my Etsy success since joining in December 2007, and plan to work to continue improving my shop and my skills in the coming years. Thank you to everyone who has played a role in my success, especially my incredibly supportive hubby!
