I sold my first Item on Etsy!

Woo Hoo! I feel like throwing a party or something. And I want to personally thank my ficklefaerie buyer who made me a very happy girl by telling me how much she loved my little Amigurumi Love Owl I made. Check her out. I'm kinda sad I didn't make one for myself.

My boss, Sally

My manager's name is Sally. Her nickname is Statistical Sally. This woman knows things that no other human in the world, except for the author of the article she read, keeps in their mind.
I have challenged her to write a blog post to share this random data with the rest of the world every time I call her on it. So, check out her new blog "Statistical Sally Starts A Blog" as I'm sure she'll have it full of new and non-useful facts and statistics in no time.

The joys of social marketing

It's been a while since I posted last. But this time I think I really am going to stick with blogging. It's a good outlet for me. Plus, it gives me a chance to get my name out there in the world of yahoo and google. Right?

So, to celebrate the techy goodness that is "Web 2.0" let me take this opportunity to put some links out there of where you can find me...Kristen...UnrulyArt...CraftieMomma...5peWebmaster...

Super Sweet 16 Scavenger Hunt

Just a month ago, my daughter turned Super Sweet 16! For years I had dreamed of the party we would throw her; rented hall, DJ, catered food, everyone she's ever met plus all her family in attendance. Alas, on her 15th birthday when we finally asked her what she expected for her 16th birthday, she said she wanted a small party with a really cool theme. She told me that the scavenger hunt I had put together for her 4 years earlier was the best time she'd ever had at a party, but this time she wanted one on a much larger scale. And the idea was born for her polka-dot themed, super sweet sixteen scavenger hunt.

Here's what we did:

  • Recruited 3 adults to drive

  • Invited 8 people (plus the birthday girl is 9)

  • Split the guests into 3 teams at random

  • Each adult driver is paired up with a team of 3 guests

  • Scavenger hunt started and ended prompty with penalties for lateness

This was a heavily themed party. We started out with unique invitations hand delivered one month in advance to assure proper notice. I purchased white cardboard mailing boxes 6" X 4" X 2". Inside the box I included a bed of "polka dot" themed candies - Skittles and M&Ms. This was mainly to cover up the hidden color coded sticker that was stuck to the bottom inside of the box. This is how we randomly picked the teams. I also included instructions for the hunt, boundries, maps, tips and tricks for codes and ciphers that may be included in the hunt. I also included a secret hidden message that was written in code. On the top of the stack of papers I added a magnet with "Save the Date" information. All of this was printed on my home computer and cut to fit inside the boxes. I'll add more details later.

What do you think of the logo?

This is the logo I'm going with at least for now. Anyone have any comments on it or suggestions for improvement? Just comment below.


This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
