Spreading My Wings! (Under Construction) October 07 2014
I've known for a very long time that, for the sake of more firmly establishing my business and my brand, I've needed to develop my own website. Etsy, with its ethos of DIY and empowerment, is still my first love. I've had tremendous continued success on Etsy and other e-commerce sites, for which I'm grateful! To an extent, I still can't fully get my head around the fact that this has actually become my day job. It's way too much fun.
But as I've always advised those who have asked me the secret to my (modest) success, if you want to make your craft your day job, you've gotta treat it like a day job. For me, this means keeping on top of tasks that I might not love so much...like marketing and branding. And I should probably do it before the need arises.
So here's the website! Full site will be soft-launching in late October, with an official launch on Black Friday.
For now, most of my goods are (and will remain) at my Etsy shop.
You can also shop for a cause at the AFSSA Silk Road Gala and Silent Auction. Asian American Family Support Services of Austin (AFSSA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization dedicated to assisting immigrant families affected by domestic violence, sexual assault, or trafficking.
Silk Road is absolutely my favorite fund raiser ever, and the food is more than worth the admission cost. Brightsmith is proud to be an annual silent auction sponsor and, as always, I'll be presenting an original collection exclusive to this event - including these ruby earrings!
