Talk to Me Tuesday Mizziexoxo Style

Welcome. Today's Talk to Me is a wonderful talented artisan, Melissa. She is creates darling charms with a geeky kawaii feel. They are super cute accessories.



Welcome Melissa! 

Please, tell us about yourself! 

Hey there lovelies, my name is Melissa and I'm the creator of Mizziexoxo Boutique. I have so many interests a few are reading,working out, listening to music,watching movies and TV, I love DIY/crafting, and cooking. 
 

Tell us about your Darling shop!

My little shop was started pretty much by accident when I stumbled upon Etsy and Storenvy. From there I had the idea to start my own shop, and the rest is pretty much history. My shop has many cute things like clay charms and jewelry, as well as accessories to satisfy your inner geek, and creepy accessories featuring skulls and bones all still remaining on the cute side. 



What is your Favorite thing to make?
 
I can't pick just one, but at the moment I've been doing a lot of polymer clay charms, rings, and earrings. 



What is the Hardest Part about owning an Online Store? 

When I first started out the hardest thing for me was making sure I didn't get discouraged. I would think that if I wasn't making a lot of sales that I was a failure. Now I realize that I must keep my head up and push through and keep up my hard work and my efforts will show.  


Do you have any advice to share concerning having an online business? 

I learned that nothing in life ever comes easily, and hard work pays off.  

That is so true! That is something I wish someone had told me before I began and the hard work is worth it! It was so wonderful to meet you and learn more about your shop and craft. I am so glad you helped expand my craft community. Thank you so much for coming and talking to us today. You can find and follow Melissa at her SHOP |ETSY | FACEBOOK  |INSTAGRAM | TWITTER | PINTEREST |BLOG|

Make sure to visit her and tell her a crafty 'Hi!'

March Goals

Did you set goals for last month? I did, so lets recap how I did and set new goals for March, '15.

Goals for February:
  • Make and add 5 new products  - FAIL - So I did 2 products and started 3...
  • Blog 3 per week - minimum - Okay-ish - almost 3 per week
  • Start writing down and keeping a book -  Success!
  • go through my belongings and organize it - FAIL
  • donate clothes and shoes I no longer wear - FAIL
  • Clean up and organize my craft supplies - Okay-ish - got it cleaned up & organized to start         NEW projects to mess it up again
  • Stay on top of networking, group, responsibilities - Success!
Remember I told you about two new blogs, My So-Called Chaos and A Peek at Karen's World, that I met? They keep on inspiring me to grow in my blogging reality.(Also The Nerdy Fox blog posted her March goals) I am so glad they are hosting a 'Goal setting Post' Link party each month. I am super bad at remembering what goals I set and figured if I blogged them...I'd remember better. And you all can check in with me to keep my accountable to them.♥

Monthly Goals 
 You can join in too...just click on the photo it will take you to the original link up for the month.

MARCH GOALS: 

  1. make stock for up coming show & to stock shop
  2. make, photograph, & list NEW products
  3. Type up & send out first Krazy Newletter
  4. Make myself a dress with the gifts hubby has given me
  5. organize & clean up my closet 
So, it is only 5 goals and I know it seems short. That way I know I can get each one accomplished! Are you joining the the "goal" setting challenge? Share a link to your post below - I'd love to read it!
