When you run your own business……

you become a professional cat herder. Seriously. I kid you not. I was having a conversation a few days ago with an acquaintance (a friend would have known better) when they said to me, “Man, it must be nice to work for yourself. No boss, all the vacation time you want, whenever you want….blah blah.” I could go on. I won’t. What I will say is this: I do have a boss. She is a bitch. I know this because she is me.  She is the most demanding boss I’ve ever had in my life.  She is always whispering in

Rocks and rolling ankles

I have been out of commission for the last week.  I threw my back out when I rolled my ankle on a rock during my morning walk. I am not the most graceful at the best of times, and I probably should just wear a helmet all the time. That postponed a lot of plans I had. I was kind of angry about it until it dawned on me that I wasn’t panicking. I have a list of what I have to get accomplished for the opening of my gallery (that is happening on Monday, 7/18!), along with having everything made

The benefits of lists

I make lists all the time for Jonathan. Not to do lists, you understand, just lists. Mostly about how awesome he is or how much I love him, or all the things he does for me so that he knows how much I appreciate him. We are doing a big clean out of the rooms in our house, getting rid of things that have been owning us. You know, the “I’m going to do something with this someday” kind of shit. He came across one of my lists that he had kept in his studio. It is a “thank you”

We are such Busy Bees

Con to Con For a recharge after Phoenix Comicon, we took three “get the heck out of town” vacation days. It was magical and all we hoped for. Could have been longer. We came home to discover we had been given the opportunity to participate in LepreCon 42 in the Merchant Hall. We were so excited to be able join in the fun this year! A five day turn around to remake and restock is going to be exciting, anxious, and stressful, but it will be worth it. Why? Because we know you love it when we do. New Stuff for LepreCon 42 Even when

Sometimes, I am really glad I’m a photographer. Maybe not so much a writer. Oh well. I’ve added 2 great-looking new products to the mix of things. We are still getting the hang of the store. Many more things are resolved now, too. We have 2 great new products: Pair

I’ve just put the finishing touches on the new Electric Tiger Design storefront. The store will feature new and handmade stones, cabochons, gems, faceted gems, jewelry supplies, and rough slabs. This store may also work in conjunction with my Etsy store. Sorry, not much more to keep you updated, but I have

Onward and upward!

I work on my Etsy site almost everyday, in between creating new product, R&D, trial and error, and doing life stuff and housework. After doing much research (and taking notes through several kinda boring webinars) I’ve decided that I’m going to move my OOAK pieces over to this site, my awesome new blog. Hopefully, this will do a few things. One, it should encourage me to write more posts. Two, it should give me an easier way for my customers to interact with me and my creations. Third, my stuff won’t get buried under thousands of other peoples stuff. All
