It’s been a long long time.

I had a million things to say yesterday and I was thinking: “wow if I post all this on my Facebook status people are going to get really annoyed” when I remembered I have a blog just for that reason lol I know, it’s been forEVer since I made any blog entries.  It’s not that […]

Venting a little frustration…

Lately I just want to scream, as I watch my competitors and friends continue to prosper, selling products for kids that aren’t properly tested/documented (under the new CPSIA laws), or items with someone else’s trademarked or copy-written images and logos, while my business continues to suffer as I fight to do things legally. I don’t […]

Christmas Rush

So the holiday sales rush from StoryBlox is finally over, I’ve still got a couple of orders to take care of, but I’m not in a huge rush.  I dropped a cutting board on my foot the day after Christmas, I think I broke my big toe.  So, I’m sitting here bored out of my […]

New Store

I’ve become increasingly displeased with Etsy, but I had a hard time finding a viable alternative. I believe I might have found one in eCrater though. I’m testing out new storefronts there, and, if I get enough traffic to satisfy, I might be switching over after the Christmas season. In the meantime, I’m going to […]

Do You Squidoo?

I just was pointed to an article on squidoo and found it intriguing… I just set up an account but I’m not really sure what to do with it… If you’ve used it, or know much about it, please share :)


Okay I’m just posting this because I haven’t blogged (or even logged in here) in forever.  I haven’t been around etsy for a long time, I haven’t been checking in with my yahoo groups… I’ve been working like crazy on StoryBlox, doing tons of required summertime family stuff (including ball games, 2 weddings, and an […]

Breaks & Blocks

I feel like I’ve been absent from most everywhere for weeks.  I think I forgot to check into Flickr for something like 2 weeks straight.  I only go to Etsy once in a while to convo a customer or relist expired items items, and I haven’t posted on here forever.  The only thing I’ve kept […]

Special UPS Pricing for PayPal Shippers

If you sell (or have sold) on eBay, and still have a current account (actuallly, I think it will work even if you don’t), and you ever ship via UPS through PayPal, you might wanna really look at this: UPS is pleased to offer eBay Sellers the opportunity to save big – up to […]

Suggestions Welcome

Okay, so Etsy is driving me nuts. If I had to take my StoryBlox™ shop off of etsy tomorrow it wouldn’t be a problem, as a lot of my sales come through my main site, or elsewhere. The tmbmt shop is another issue though, because it’s odds and ends and stuff that I don’t really […]
