Just a quick personal note here, for them what reads this here blog thang occasionally: My wife, the lovely and talented Wife Unit, is attempting to sell some of her handmade beaded jewelry. This stuff is handwoven by her own two hands, from just loose beads, thread, wire, imagination, and time. She’s been doing it professionally, selling at craft shows around the Southeast, for about twelve years, and since we lost our business website last year (love ya, Network Solutions, mean it) we’ve not had an Internet presence to sell it. So she’s put some shinies up on her LiveJournal for y’all to ooh and ahh over, and hopefully buy.
If we sell enough, we’ll be able to afford the entry fee into a local Ren Faire in a couple of months and sell more there. If we don’t, we can’t. Simple. Our theory is, we’re not going to get jack shit out of the $850 billion porkulus bill that Obama and Congress are about to shove down our throats, so we’ll just stimulate ourselves. And no, you may not watch.
Please go visit The Magpie’s Nest and see if anything strikes your fancy. Details and contact information are over there.
