Interview that lead to today's posts

I know Nick Graham is a big time designer and soon an online seller. His reach is so much more than the average handmade artisan will ever have. What struck me most about his interview is his comparisons between brick and mortar selling versus selling online.
"You have to create the story."
That is something so many artisans and vintage sellers do on sites like Zibbet. Even the supply sellers are part of this in providing goods that allow you to tell your story. To me with the upcoming holidays the gifts given that have stories are the best kind. I encourage you to shop where you can find the stories. More on these ideas at the Group2020 blog.

Over the weekend

It was mildly, probably for some and wildly for me, exciting here this weekend.

  • I went over the 1000 mark for followers on twitter. Never thought that would happen. If you are interested I am @cozyatoz.
  • I listed some dishcloths and sold some on the same day in my re-energized Zibbet shop.

  • I finished up the crocheting on a donation afghan. This will be the third year I have given one to the hospital in Jackson for the first baby of the new year. It was done in a pattern called Catherine's Wheel or more currently known now as a Wooleater. As usual for me the ends need woven in on it but I have lots of time for that.

  • One Saturday night we went out to dinner at Teton Thai with some friends. Good food and good company.
  • We had our first pretty good snow storm over the weekend. The first snows are always lovely. You will hear me grumbling about March I am sure.

Till next time,
