I Think, Therefore I Craft - Parte Dos

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Saturday was absolutely fabu! I sold more than I anticipated. But, what worried me was that none of my glitter-Marley or bling-Marley earrings sold. These are always haute sellers. They were ultra-cheap ($10.00 and $20.00), and heavily examined by customers (mostly artists). Which can mean only one thing--cheap imitations coming to your favorite downtown boutique soon. So, this week I will be putting some in my friend's store, Afrika in Savannah. If any of you are interested in purchasing we accept credit cards and check by phone. Pics of merchandise should be up no later than next Monday.

Special big-ups to Clinton and Epiphany of
Spitfire Poetry Group for their support!

This one guy had these cute fuzzy/furry pink thingies. Clinton purchased one (I assumed it was for his mom or perhaps one of his spoken-word groupies), its name is Chester. "Chester used to be a writer for the Conan O'Brian show who's career went flat.... (or something, like my short-term memory is going to allow me to remember all that s***). I begged him to buy me one, he claimed that dude was sold out (uh-huh, you owe me how many lunches?). The guy that was selling them had a box and champagne flutes filled with "free sexy gumballs", this was such a cut-n-smart marketing gimmick. The two top words every consumer notices are "free" and "sexy". Perverts like
Soundboyz would see "free sexy balls". Which segues into this...

Once I start to develop the good habit of taking pictures of my work and posting them, this blog will become 75% craft related. Free Sexy Gumballs will be my next blog. The focus will be my rants and social life. Especially since I have stuffed-animal *ahem* lover Soundboyz posting all types of heinous atrocities.

Update: Of course I did not bring my camera and none of the girls were courteous enough to take a shot of me. But I did snag this picture from Craftster (the crafty forum site where I met them--they all go to the same art school ...enough said). If you look at the center left edge you can see half of my foot! (Soundboyz) don't get too excited!

And to answer your question from your blog, in a matter of speaking--yes. In all seriousness, the avatar is a picture of the Yoruba orisha (deity) Oshun. She is the goddess of love, art and money.

Hello, Goldi. I posted pics of some "Country Art" for you over at my place. I will post more later today. Trying to hang out there more since Soundboyz banished me. I ended up not kicking his ass after all. Too much energy. Have a great day!! Oh, and wasn't Luke Cage's post the coolest? He took me back to my first album from Columbia House Records & Tapes: The Doobie Brothers, with the HUGE joint on the front cover!! Mary Jane never looked so good!!

Awww shucks Soundboyz, flattery will get you everywhere. Actually one of the girls was like you worked in heels all day (you should have seen the room before we organized it-there was a paraty the night before). I'm like yep! Three inches to boot!

What's happening peeps? Hey miss Goldi,check you out in all of your "foot" glory. Congrats on outdoing more than you expected. That's what its all about isn't it?

Hey Soundboyz, are you a foot man like myself? I never admitted as much until Eddie Murphy helped a brotha come out the box when he spoke out about hammertime in Boomerang! Now I let all the girlies know. Pretty digits are the move.

Hi. I seem to be getting a bit lost looking for bling bling. Seems to be a lot of it around but finding just the right stuff about bling bling is taking me some time. I would like to say though you have a blinging good site here. Hope to get back sometime. Keep up the good work.

Advertising can be a big problem otherwise. A lot of companies reserve a big chunk of their budgets to cover marketing expenditures.
