Happy New Year!  The last few months of 2008 felt like a terrific success to me, so to celebrate, and to kick off the new year in style, I’m having another sale!  Yep, selected items in my shop will be 20% off through midnight tonight.  Click HERE to see what’s in the shop.

2009 will bring some changes to my shop, including new materials and new techniques, but I’ll get to those later in the week.  I also promise to post photos from recent holiday festivities with my friends and family to my Flickr page.  For now, though, I think it’s time to curl up on the couch with some hot coffee and watch the rest of the Rose Parade.

*** Shop News: One day left in the Holiday Sale!! The sale runs through the end of Cyber Monday. ***

I had tons of packing paper that I received with my Rio Grande orders just sitting around, so I decided to cart it off somewhere and shred a bunch of it (I need my own shredder). It is working nicely as filler and cushioning for my packages these days, and I’m using as much recycled and repurposed material as possible in general for packing. I always enjoyed wrapping presents during the holidays and was often conscripted by my family members to do their gifts for them. Needless to say, I’m having a lot of fun with my more elaborate packaging set-up now.

I hope everyone in the US had a great Thanksgiving yesterday!

It’s getting close midnight, which means it’s almost time for my birthday sale to start!  Actually, the sale is turning into a general celebration sale to mark not only my birthday, but the incredible new political direction that the United States is taking.  The historic election that took place yesterday is a terrific occassion to add to the list of things to celebrate!

At 12:00am on November 6th, a whole bunch of the best-sellers in my Etsy shop go on sale at 20% off their regular price.  I have several of each item in stock, so they’ll be ready to ship as soon as they’re sold.  Quantities are limited, though.  Once they’re gone, they’re gone, and items will be back in the shop at regular price on the 7th.

Happy Shopping!

Not anymore!  In the interesting in generating as much of a web presence as possible, I decided to open a shop on Big Cartel.  And while I’m still in the process of getting it set up and working on the design, I thought I’d give it a bit of a mini-debut.  Prices and shipping costs are identical to those in my Etsy shop, and it’s just one more place to find AntiGenre jewelry on the web!

All over the news today – on Meet the Press, Hardball, everywhere – people are saying there are only nine days left. Just nine days! I think they counted incorrectly, though, because my birthday is in eleven days, on the 6th of November.

Funnily enough, the 6th is the same day as my Birthday Sale! I’m getting to work on a bunch of the best sellers in my Etsy shop, and will have multiples of many of them available. The sale will run from 12:00am to midnight on the 6th, and when the sale is over, eveything will be back in the shop at its regular price. So tell your friends, stop by and do some shopping!

Sparkly…, originally uploaded by antigenre.

Well, the winter holidays are coming, like it or not! I’m going to go shopping today and stock up on some sparkly vintage glass beads to make a few festive items for the shop. It’s never too early to start figuring out what to wear to all those holiday parties!

Something else that is on its way is my birthday, and to celebrate, I’m having a sale! I’ll be offering 20% off some ready-to-ship items. The sale will be in early November, after the presidential election. I figure it will be an ideal time for either celebratory shopping or consolation shopping, depending on your political persuasion. Either way, it will be fun, so check in in the near future for more details!

FlashFilm Homepage, originally uploaded by antigenre.

A few weeks ago, I was contacted for an interview by FlashFilm, a very cool online fashion magazine from Japan. One of their editors found me through Trunkt (I’m happy that my premium portfolio is paying off).  I was very excited this morning to see that the complete interview was just posted on their website!

Take a look:

New Moos, originally uploaded by antigenre.

I just spent almost a week in Kansas with my family – it was a lot of fun, except for the tornado warning and the constant reminders of the recently-passed Concealed Carry law.  I picked up some neat vintage treasures, including the pleasingly-distressed metal filing draw that I used for the background in this photo of my new Moo cards.
