Featured Seller: DanaMiller

So I was posting in forums like usually when I stumbled into this wonderful little shop: DanaMiller. W/Luv. I feel in love with her extraordinary prices and AMAZING quality of items.

I love this elephant wallet! OMG! Its only $8 and SUPER cute! Its on my faves list and when I get enough money (and its still there.. KABAM). I might also be on the lookout for other safari animals. Like my favorite... Giraffe. OR LLAMASSS <333.>

Not only does she have cute wallets... but these amazing crocheted sun catcher earrings. Filled with color and vibrancy.

She is for sure on my "fave seller and MUST check out" list. :)

2008 Goals

2008 Goals

2008 is a new look at my shop, CagedBirdSings. I'm having the overall goal of turning what is a fun hobby into a small time business. If I complete my goals I will be happy as a clam! (wouldn't we all??) But To have a long term goal you also need to have short term goals which help you create the long term- it helps keep you motivated and at the end of each goal you can even treat yourself to something special.

Long Term Goals:
- Hobby -> Business
- Keeping a better track on cost of materials and shipping.
- Making 100 sales this year. (5/100) :)

Short Term Goals:
- staining the wood blocks used to hold the chimes
- improve shipping designs. (better "thank you!" notes etc)
- Sell 9 chimes a month. (to make 100 sales this year :))

Anyways. I'm hitting this month off strong with 5 sales! Next month I'll really be focusing on the 9 a month goal so that my 100 overall is an easier attainable beast.

Thanks for listening! Have a good year everyone! :)

New Addition -- Knotty Chime

The newest addition to the CBS group-- Knotty Chime.

Why call it Knotty? During the process of making it, it drove me up the wall with frustrations and cut me several times (not because the pieces were sharp- just because of the way I handled it. Harder than usual. It fought back.. and won).
The colors were too intense and amazing to leave alone. I had to continue. Tough love so to speak.

I love this little knotty chime.. even though it was very.. naughty.

Enjoy! :)
