Boutique Karma

Just another weblog

Crafty Friday – A week of features :) February 26, 2010

Well, I must say this week has been a quite joyous celebration of my little biz. When I say ‘little’ I mean it as a term of endearment – like my child – not in a malicious way. I love my business, I love what I’m making, I love my fabulous buyers, each one of them unique and fun to work with, and I love the joyous feeling I get from feedback. It makes me so proud to think someone in California is cuddled up at night with while using my eye pillow, or a toddler in Texas is coloring away using my crayon roll up, someone in New Brunswick is using a Mug Hugger while drink her morning java. I can’t tell you how special that is. I think I get more pleasure from the idea of sharing my stuff then any 9-5 job I ever had.

This week my shop was featured in the ‘Member Spotlight‘ on my Etsy team blog: Crafting in Color. This team is super amazing and I love all the gorgeous items they all produce. I try really hard to showcase as many of them as possible during my crafty montage pieces. You should take a look around their blog – you are sure to find stuff you like (including a feature about me – Tara – the girl behind Boutique Karma).  Also take a moment to vote a special item for this month’s themed voter for Love & Hearts.

Earlier this week I was also featured as the item of the day on with my Mug Huggers. It was such a surprise I thought it must have been a bogus email. I was super high with excitement all day! Please take a moment to check out the feature and vote/comment on it. Show some love! A million thank yous to Leslieanne of Kooky Boutique for finding & featuring me! xoxo The Largest Handmade Craft blog on Earth for Artisans by Artisans

Next week is going to be an exciting week over here at the Boutique Karma blog – I have another new line to unveil (those of you who read the feature on CIC team blog can guess what it may be), I have a new charity that I will be supporting, a contest/giveaway and more! So please come back next week to check in.

Cheers & Happy weekend!

Well it seems as though its been a horendously long day of setting up this new blog. Granted I’m using a pre-done layout & theme, but I’m still finding in insanely frustrating.

There is this weirdo problem using the text/html and it no matter what I try it will not display my Etsy Mini OR my Artfire Rapid cart. Now I’ve tried it many times, I’ve even tried closing Chrome and trying in IE (which I loathe). Maybe on a new day I’ll be able to get it running.

So what are your thoughts? Do you like the new WordPress Boutique Karma look & feel? If I ignore the Etsy Mini issue I’m loving it 🙂

love all the fun features and I look forward to looking into them all a little deeper in the future.
