Ok. I’m super proud of Kim and her ingenious idea for email-delivered scrapbook page tutorials. Essentially, you sign up (it’s now FREE) and then you get three emails that deliver the step-by-step process of creating a layout (from concept, to material prep to execution.)
I say GO Kim and GO learn more!
I bought this adorably soft and colorful scarf at my favorite store in the Minneapolis airport. It’s from Natural Life (another of my favorites) and I LOVE it, as it LOVE. LOVE. LOVE it.
Note: There are lots of other designs too!
This is called Square and it’s AMAZING.
Have you heard of it?
It’s a small device that inserts into your iPhone and allows you, with the aid of this app to process credit card payment right from your phone.
Here’s the story: I purchased a handful of things from the marketplace at The Creative Connection event. One vendor used square and the transaction took maybe 45 seconds. My receipt was emailed to me. The other two transactions were painstakingly S-L-O-W and I had to write out my name, address, VISA # (with all the details) and just walk away with all of that information in a note-very-secure environment. I’m not saying I don’t trust those vendors, but I am saying there is clearly better, faster and more secure way of doing business with your handmade goods.
Visit squareup.com for more information.
I don’t make or sell any handmade goods, but I’m thinking I could get one just in case someone compliments something I’m wearing. I could say, “Like it, want it? It’s yours — just give me your credit card!”
Super cute (20 for $5) snack bags from the Peace Love World online store. Yes, kind of expensive, but still so cute for an every-now-and-then special lunch! And while you’re at the store, poke around as there are LOTS of ways to spend your money!
My Craft Channel.
I’m pretty sure this exciting new WEB TV show launches Monday (at least that’s what I’ve heard!) This is camera man Brad and camera man Rick on my MCC set, just after finishing up 12 episodes of Photo Freedom. Note: There’s a reason I’m wearing the Fanta Orange T-shirt (stay tuned!)
Happy Friday to YOU!
