Hey friends! how was your Halloween? Ours was full of fun and business! Holy cow I filmed all day yesterday for the upcoming Christmas workshop (gonna show you sneak peeks on monday!)
and then trick or treating.. and then went to the warehouse and worked on the studio until 4 AM THIS MORNING!! (WHICh i A MOVING IN NEXT WEEK!!)
wahoo! I will post pics and a video!) Ben and I both did! By the time we were done.. we were so hungry we decided to go to breakfast at Shari's.. had some good old fashioned pancakes and hasbrowns and walked in the door around 6:00 AM when our kids were just starting to wake up to get ready for school. So we went back to bed for a few hours.. yea.. Im a walking zombie right now! lol
Anyhow.. sorry for not getting this October video posted in OCTOBER.. holy cow.. that whole video editing thing is kicking my butt! I normally use my Imovie program to edit and it was just NOT working and so I finally decided to use my PC and downloaded Sony Vegas Platinum program. While it's pretty cool program.. it was DEFINITLY not straight forward like imovie is.. it took me hours watching youtube videos from other people.. on how to just add music, and pictures, and cross fades, and fast forward. holy cow you would have thought I had never edited videos before! I have been doing it for 2 years.. and it took me forever to figure it out. But now I know and now it should go smoother. Luckily I have hired my brother VK, to help me edit all my upcoming videos for my workshops.. that will help out a ton (since we always do like 15-20 videos per workshop! at least!!)
Okay... so onto today's video! before I start.. wanted to say first off.. THANK YOU for your freaking awesome support of my etsy Store! And an update on the store.. we just got in yesterday all the new Carson products (another manufacturer I worked with).. and So I have added those to the store.. and they were just starting to pull orders at the warehouse from last thursday and friday's orders and I said. wait! give it a day or two.. because I was thinking some of you may want to purchase some of these new things.. and this way I can combine shipping for you and refund some of the shipping and ship them together! So if you want to get some of the things below. I am going to wait to ship orders until Monday of next week.. and if you purchase anything else during that time.. I will ship it all together and refund overpayment of shipping! Just fyi.. okay.. so I have to show you what is new!!!
The absolute favorite thing.. (okay tied with the last thing I am showing you).. are the sketchbook journals! They are about 6"x8" in size.. and have brown kraft paper inside.. oh so in love!
Gorgous new Mugs.. (there are actually only four new mug styles.. but this pictures shows the mugs pretty much all the way around. Carsons did a great job with these! two are girls and two are different scenes (the last mug on the right has a girl on it.. but the picture doesn't show it)
Dinner Plates! ( or you can use them for cookies, cupcakes, to hold supplies on.. anything really!
Wall plates and platters (again the wall plates could totally be fun to put cookies on, or your mug.. don't have to hang them on the wall.. USE them! lol)
And the my most FAVORITE thing from their line.. (okay.. this and the journals are pretty close..)
the She Art resin figurines! They are so cute and have demensional pieces all over them. The words, the flowers, butterflies.. they all are demensional pieces. These can hang on a wall, or they free stand. Just love em!
SO that's fun! I wasn't able to list the art bags! They came in ( my own company was priting those) but they only printed side?? lol.. I was like.. um no.. these aren't going to work. So sending them back to have the other side printed. AND then guess what! So many of you have asked.. I ordered IPhones cases for the Iphone 5! So those are coming soon too! We sold out of a lot of things.. Magnets, mugs, mouse pads, frames.. a lot of things.. so those are on re-order now too.
okay.. onto the video for October!!
I had envisioned in my mind this fun Fall but bright and bold flower pieces.. I know I love flowers pieces and do them a lot.. but I couldn't get this one out of my head.. (don't worry next month it's NOT flowers.. well and last month wasn't either? so we are doing okay! lol)
Anyhow.. Here is what I came up with..
this kit included fun banner from Glitz, washi tape from glitz (the chevron I used on the stems) and these awesome fun kraft flowers too (which by the way could totally be used as stencils!!) and so much more! I show in the video what is included!
So that's it! Super fun! The canvas isn't included.. it's a 6"x12" deep edge.. but you can use just about anything!
So anyhow.. onto the video! Thanks friends again.. for all you do and ALL your birthday wishes!!!!! truly i freaking LOVE YOU ALL!!! xoxoxox
