Because I need more sites to update like I need a hole in my head...

The Marlowe Co. now has a Facebook page.

Goodness, it does look rather sickly and pathetic with its one fan (that fan being me), doesn't it?

You Should See...

Items for sale on Etsy that have struck me as fantastic:

Balancing Cat Card

I think if I received this clever card from Pocket Studio, I'd want to display it on my desk instead of just putting it back in the envelope like so many other cards.

Power Line Plate

I'm not sure why this plate (and the other Power Line wares) from Urban Soule calls to me, but it does.

Keep Calm and Carry On Spoof Calendar for Men

You can probably learn much about me just from knowing that I prefer the mens' version of this print-it-yourself calendar from little brown pen to the womens' version.

Oops Coasters

One of the things I like best about Etsy is coming across incredibly clever (a word I seem to use often when talking about items on Etsy) products like these industrial felt coasters from Studio Wonjun.

Stuff 'N' Things

Had a sale on the moustache pendant the day after I posted it! Maybe it's because I'm still a greenhorn, but each sale is a little thrill for me. And a sale on the moustache pendant is especially thrilling since it is our first family-designed piece. It's exciting to think that something my family created is travelling across the country to be made into something marvelous by someone we've never met.

I like the fact that two of our customers are also seller/crafters on Etsy. Every time I make a trek through the other shops on Etsy (which I do often because I cannot seem to do any work on the shop without getting distracted by the shinies and pretties), I find something that impresses the bejesus out of me. So many very talented people making amazing things - it makes me happy to see it.

The Moustache is Here!

I don't intend to make this a "Look what I listed today" blog, but I am so excited to have this up in the shop that I think it deserves its own post. Please visit Mr. Moustache and read the charming, family story behind it.

(The blog has been quiet because life was a little crazy for a bit with a minor [well, minor in that no one was hurt, but my car was deemed a total loss] car accident, but everything is settling back down.)
