So just when I'm about to embark on my new etsy store journey... I get slammed with Flu season... I can't even lift my head off my pillow as I type this.... no joke... this feels like the black plague, and I wouldnt wish this on ANYONE :-(

Well until I am well, and functioning , that is all for now...
Back to sleep I go...

Renaissance Fair

Hello Lovelies,

It's been a really long time since I did a legitimate blog post, so I figure I owed you guys a little something. A lot of time has passed since I last posted, which also means that I have done a lot of fun magickal things since (Mostly Stelladeora stuff with my band), but also a lot of other things!

In September, a dear family friend supplied Avi & I with 2 comped tickets to the NY Renaissance Fair!!! It was such a magickal day, and we went equipped with Avi's heavyduty SLR camera. We got so many great pics, and he even edited them all. And then it happened...

Upon backing them up onto his hard drive, he mixed up files, thought he had backed up the HIGH RES photos, and had already deleted the originals off of his computer desktop, by the time he had realized the mistake. ALL THE PHOTOS ARE GONE!! :-( We are super bummed about all of this, but we managed to save some very low res previews of the day. I tried to spruce them up a bit with a sprinkle of fairy dust, but nothing can express how upset we are that such an amazing day will only be remembered through thoughts! Here they are...


Medieval clothing for sale at every vendor!

Little ones befriend the faeries as they enchant their guests...

"Come and play as the wild fairies play
In a magical circle, a fairy ring
You won't want to leave and forever you'll stay
Where the vision is bright as spring"
Gary Stadler & Wendy Rule

Mosaics in the marketplace...

Admiring the butterfly gardens...

I couldn't resist but to splurge on a maiden's head dress!!

There were also some really cute videos of some little girls dancing with the faeries, but we lost those as well :-( ... O well...I guess that gives us more of incentive to go again next year!

I hope you enjoyed this little glimpse into our trip to the NY Renaissance Fair!

Return of the Just-i

Hey Lovelies,

I know it's been a really , really , really... REALLY ... really ... long ... time....
.. really...

I'm actually returning to this blog here, because I have actually once and for all started to get this Etsy store up and running. Now hold your horses! It's not up yet! There are still a few very important things to do before launching it.

My dear friend Marie, has decided to help me finally be able to move forward with things ( as she is much better at "reading the fine print" , than I am, and she has agreed to help me out with the business aspect of things). Hey, I was born a creative person, but not so business savvy... so I am so glad to have her onboard. Together I think we can get a nice little shop going :-)

She will also aid me, in the creation of things. We are currently in the process of coming up with our inventory list, and items that we would like to test run , as the first batch in our shop.

The whole thing is just very exciting, and hopefully once it is launched and up & running, we can have some kind of blog party to promote it, and maybe even do a first day sale of some sorts, just to guage some interest.

Also, I know alot of you fellow bloggers have much experience in doing these blog party giveaways, and all that fun etsy store stuff, so any advice or help would be much appreciated!!
We are totally excited! Expect a launch in the next month or so!
