Jessica from Allora Handmade says:

    I never knew the power of advertising online until I found Gussy Sews. Or until it found me, I suppose. After my sister recommended a pair of earrings to Gussy on Twitter, she promptly ordered them. Once she received her package, she tweeted and blogged about them right away as a product that she recommends to her readers. The positive response to my shop (and in particular, my earrings) was incredible as a result of her recommendation. The day she blogged about the earrings, I receive 15 orders of the exact same earrings, and by the end of the week that had nearly doubled. Not to mention the immediate increase in blog and twitter followers. While I can’t track whether the sales came directly from her, I can track the increased traffic that her link brought me. Gussy’s readers value her opinions and her taste, and the numbers prove it. I can’t say enough about what her promotion of my product has done for my business!

{our new living room rug}

A few weeks ago we ordered a rug for our living room. Zack and I have never lived in an all-hardwood floor house before, so bare floors is definitely new for us. We found a neutral shag rug for our bedroom but were still looking for something in the living room. Until a few weeks ago :]

The rug arrived over the weekend, along with a handful of smaller packages {fabric, yes!}, and Zack put everything in my studio… I went in there late Sunday evening and noticed the giant roll. He had confused the rug “roll” as a roll of home decor fabric :] Hah! {What? This isn’t normal?}

Here’s our new rug — along with some pics of Bauer.

See his mowhawk?


Funny stories:

- I “caught” Bauer under our bed today; He was crawling around under there. I couldn’t figure out what he was doing until I realized he couldn’t see how/where to get out. Our bed skirt is brown and it was dark under there, ha ha!!! Poor puppy.

- My mom told my our nephew Collin {5.5 years old} to come to the computer so they could watch a video of Bauer online. He said, What dot com do we go to?

Do you have nieces/nephews? What cute things do they say that melt your heart?
