Holiday Preparations

Posted by 1 on

The holidays are coming, the holidays are coming! Have you noticed all the holiday decor that suddenly sprouted up (immediately) following halloween? I always hope that the spooky haunts will stay around a little longer but it seems businesses are determined to remind us all it's time to start stockpiling the glitter, garland, and of course, eggnog. LanaBetty is very excited to debut an entirely new jewelry line, one that has been nearly three years in the making.

I enjoy the holidays just as much as the next fanatical christmas-lover, but I strongly believe there is a time and a place. Unfortunately, in the homemade business, one must be ahead of the seasons. I hear it's even a good idea to begin pitching for Valentine's Day when October comes around! While that is certainly a goal for the future of LanaBetty, currently the mad hustle is in preparation for the holiday shows...

It has been one hectic spring week and it is still only Wednesday! This week began when my alarm went off at 3:00am.

Christmas Cozy

Posted by 1 on

Well, we're in the thick of it now - two holiday craft shows/markets down, two to go. The first began with Make It! A Handmade Revolution, where LanaBetty: Fun with Paints made its design debut. A smashing success; I cannot wait for 2013, there are going to be some amazing changes/improvements taking LanaBetty to better and more awesome places than ever before! The second show was Portobello West Christmas Market, which is always a good time. I feel like I am a part of a great big family with PBW, they have been so amazing and supportive of my brand!...
