I LOVE coffee. You already knew that didn't you? Admit it, if you are reading this you probably love coffee also. However, for as much as I love coffee, I really don't know all that much about the different types of beans, roasts, intensities, etc. I just know what I like when I sip it. 

I came accross this cool coffee profile link on Facebook the other day and it actually was pretty spot on. Its by Van Houtte, which I find make delicious coffee (although a tad outside of my bulk coffee bean budget).


check it out and let me know what you found out about your caffeinated taste buds.


Thoughts on the passing of another year.. January 7, 2010

Every year that passes makes me think of what (if anything) I accomplished in the past year. Many years this just serves to put me into a depression.

This year however, I feel that I accomplished a bit. I opened my first store (on Etsy), pushed long and hard to get a few sales (somehow I believed that ppl would be buying me out of my product right from the get go). With time, and perseverance I started to have a little sales base. I also did some offline selling and by the years end I felt very confident that this coming year would be even better.

My Etsy & Artfire (new) stores were never intentioned to be huge money makers. They were to be a nice pass time, and to pay for some extra activities for the children. They were a way for me to stay home with the children and still feel as though I was making a contribution to the household.

This coming year my plan is to continue pushing both my Etsy & Artfire stores, to work a little harder on maintaining my blog and to work on a few new product lines. I’d like to also search for more craft sales venues and build up my inventory to really bring in a fabulous end of year (pay for the kiddies Christmas gifts).

I hope to have an extended line of Boutique Karma Cafe products available in both my Etsy & Artfire stores by the end of January. As a coffee addict this could be my future passion for my store.

Best Wishes to all – Happy New year!


On a personal note – I’m usually an intensely private person who is very shy. I’m going to try to be a little more outgoing this year and work on my self-image. Here’s to showing the world the ‘real’ me…
