crunch, thanks,....blab



So today was a stressful  packed day hence the 'crunch' of the title.  So last night I chose to slack a little, well I chit chatted on the phone and edited photos which was something to check of the bucket list , just not first, second or third.......heh, whatever it's done. I only say it was stressful because of how mad I was for passing out when I took my 4a.m. nap instead of waking 20 min later, and working till the usual 6:30 a.m.

So today was full of hunks, pickles and toof fairy pillows, wtf - ha sounds a little exciting on paper, well it really wasn't. It was a day where you had to keep reminding yourself to think like a machine, 15 hrs and going strong minus making my kid happy breaks. It was a good day for both Olive and I her projects consisted of paints and markers on paper and she made a mini shrine with her already existing art box housing her model magic Christmas elephants and finger puppet- today she added fake flower heads all around it, it looks super cute too.

So the thanks go out to my dad for coming over with my fav the Flint Crepe Company - iced mocha- the best you ever had! He also ordered Sicily's pizza the bomb biggity, so good. Seeing how I had the six foot table set up with more projects than the average day can handle.... he took over lil Miss Olive Maes demands and kept her happy. I powered through the mother load of hunks, yep right in front of every body- lol. Pickles one even has a bad back haha think my dad inspired that one. I finished up a couple key chains and my 2nd pregnant with removable baby monsta. So I'm gonna say it was a good day! ;)



Also I'd like to make a special thanks to Sarah Reed for all the tips and time she donated to helping me with the camera- she helped select a nice point and shoot Fuji camera for table top photography and answered an array of most likely whiney questions ha and was nice and super helpful every time.  I also received a few pointers from my girl Amelia's hub about photoshop and editing thanks Jason. I am gonna be doing my own photography until I have enough revenue to pay out and still have money left I'm about to get there, because I have just made this my full time job, not having a paper check can be scary scary in the wrong situation, but I truly believe if you want something bad enough with enough hard work and determination you can make anything happen, nothing to it but to do it.   


So the blab starts here.............

So the latest latest would have to be that Frankenstitch Productions has made into boutiques and we are totally stoked about it and hope to have F.P. in every state by the end of 2012, that's my dream soon to come true.



So needless to say since I retired my apron for slanging' sandwiches full time - I've been sewing all time- busier than ever and feeling good bout it.



**We also made a few minor packaging/presentation upgrades for you all-





New bags for craft show, monsta show off

update on the biz

So the latest awesomeness @ Frankenstitch would be the new tags created by www.flintprints.com. I am solely working for Frankenstitch Productions full time and figure it's time to dress up the monstas and get them out world wide in boutiques, that's my next goal. All I know is I want the monstalove to grow, where ever I end up I want to spread the love. I figure being in Flint its gonna be rather hard to have a steady income selling monstas, so since I am still here I am planning on reaching my arms out wide and delivering my furry friends to kitschy little boutiques nation wide.

front


and this is the back


The new tags allow the customer to enter their monstas name into the blogs search bar and see his or her story and pic. I found the site looks better if entered into a computer rather than a smart phone, but it has that option too, you can scan the code and it will take you to there blog "hello my name is..." where all the monstas are properly introduced. 


The stories are a big part of my monstas and I've just now came up with a way to deliver- since I've made thousands of monstas we are starting fresh with the stories and pics to keep it fresh and smooth.

So whats been going on since you quit your paper check job Mrs. Bills- Guzak....

So as most of you Flinty's know I quit my waitress hustle well kinda I work 2.5 hrs a week on Friday and special events for extra weekend money, and to keep my social circles a go. I have transformed into a stay at home mom, with my wild child mini me. Things have been awesome mostly we've been enjoying our time as a family together while the hub is home. I have built a schedule of a nice routined day for both Olive and I which will go into effect once dad goes back to work, as for now it's a free for all. I have been hustling out ideas and trying to keep the pages fresh updated and communication with my clients good. I have 3 customs out of 14 left they're cut and on the table...... last night I had to push them aside and get some monsta fun up in the mix. I have cut 38 new guys since I went full bore with F.P.

Super excited I have a slue of new eyes about to arrive in the next couple weeks and a full stock of furs and fleece, enough to keep me busy for some time. 



Thanks for stopping by <3 Big love and Happy Holla-days to all of ya!!
