1) Listen to others
Sign up for RSS feeds for your favorite blogs and try to at least skim them every day if possible.
2) Say something
Write about whatever you'd like but make it focused, meaningful and of course interesting. I hope I'm doing this.. but I am going to try to make them more focused posts with more of a 'message' to each one.
While at the talk, someone asked how she should set up her shop. I can't remember now if it was Antonio or fellow attendees who mentioned to her that it could be set up as "collections". That week I decide to start knitting up for the Fall season since I want try to make the most wristwarmers ever (only second year selling heh). It wasn't intentional but I guess it was a subconscious choice to pick just one skein of yarn and work with it until it was finished.
And hence, the "Blue Collection" was born! I still need to sew in the leftovers and sew on pretty silver buttons but I figured I'd post about them now as a "before" picture so you can see the semi-finished pieces. If you'd like me to reserve one for ya, let me know :)
