New ad up

I just bought a text ad for a week on Pink is the New Blog. I like that site, Trent is funny and I like how he goes about dishing the gossip. So my ad will be there for a week starting tomorrow. I am going to work on a new gif image so when I renew my adspace on Crazydaysandnights it will have a new pic. I might also put one on Pajiba but I am not sure yet. I am looking for high traffic sites. I also just made three flyer ads that I am getting printed off so that I can pass them out and see if I can get any business that way. Maybe I can have my daughter pass them out at her dance class. I am really excited! I am also working on a few more V-day designs, also some anti-V-day ones. I am thinking cupid is a bastard is a good one. Maybe I just feel a bit jaded this year hahaha.

They work!

Using those online ads have definitely worked. I had more traffic in the last week than I have since I opened the stores in September! Now I just need to save some more money so I can get some more. I also need to make a better GIF image. I didn't really like the one I used, but I did not know the specifications so the cool one I made in Photoshop was too big. Now I know to make it smaller. Thanks to those of you who bought stuff! I greatly appreciate it.

CafePress is fixed

It was them being all glitchy. Thank goodness, I was not looking forward to having to redo everything. I did however change the background. I like the blue better for now.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year everyone! I have made a resolution to try and blog here more often. I tend to pay more attention to my personal blog and forget about this one sometimes. I have been working on advertising the sites lately. I have paid for a weeks worth of ad space from and have 2 ads. One ad is on the gossip site and the other one is on . Paying for ad space is kind of expensive, but these two were reasonably priced for me. I paid 41 dollars for both. Some places wanted up to 1, 000. It was crazy. I can see how you can make extra money that way if you have a high traffic site though. Maybe one of these days I can do the same, hahaha. I have also been sending out fliers.

The site over at CafePress is being all wonky. None of my icons are showing up and all my categories are showing up twice. I can't figure it out. I think it is a glitch with the main system because when I checked it a few days ago it was working just fine. I guess if it is still like that in a few days I will have to go through and delete all my icons and find some new ones. That is such a pain in the butt. I am beginning to think that the CafePress site is a waste of time. My Zazzle site is selling more items, I have yet to sell one thing on CafePress. I am going to give it a few more months though, maybe I am just being impatient.

I got my screen printing materials. Now I just need to find someplace who will sell shirts to me in bulk. I also need to buy a few more screens. It will probably be a while before I get it started but at least I have the ball rolling on it.

I will be working on some more Valentine designs, maybe a few birthday cards as well. I need to make some Yard Signs and bumper stickers. I have not made any of those yet. Should do a few before school starts back up next week. I have an art history class to take, yet again, ugh. If i never have to take another art history class it will be too soon. That is about all for now! I will check back in a lot sooner, promise!
