Re: Conquering My Anal Retentiveness {Part 2}

No really, I am! :-D

The first step in simplifying {conquering my anal retentiveness} was to move from two shops to one. Find the details of said "merger" here.

The next step in simpliying {in order to do a better job with less} is to merge my two blogs.  This will be the last post on Twillypop's Place.  I'm not doing either blog justice right now and so, I'm giving this one up.  Thanks for following, I love interacting with you and I hope you'll find me at my other blog.

Anything I would have ordinarily posted here, can now simply be found here.  So please, come join me there!

Re: Conquering My Anal Retentiveness

This post could go by many titles but they would all boil down to the same thing: simplifying.

I feel like I eventually have come around to deciding on my own what many others would have told me from the strart and that is: I don't need TWO shops.

Two shops came about because I didn't like my more playful Twillypopgirl necklaces in the mix with my adult necklaces. Anal retentive, much? (:-D)

 But now:
1} as Twillypop has progressed and grown, the  adult necklaces have taken on a more colorful, whimsical personality than I had originally expected.  The Twillypopgirl/Twillyteen necklaces fit like a glove and add even more color and fun to my shop. 
2}My hope is that customers looking for adult jewelry may be more likely to buy Twillypopgirl swag and vice/versa.
3} I wasn't doing justice to Twillypopgirl as a line or a shop and hopefully this will help me do better.

 Sooooo, I'm excited!  You'll see more Twillypopgirl/Twillyteen items popping up all the time! 

Many of the smaller Twillypopgirl necklaces will most likely not make the trip over to the growed up shop, so if you have your eye on one, better get "her" now!  Sometime within the next month or so, the old Twillypopgirl shop will be closed :)

Thanks for stopping by! Come back soon for part 2 of conquering my anal retentiveness {yes, there's more and no, I'm not kidding!}

My Technical Ineptitude

Up until 2 years ago {when I started Twillypop} I didn't even know how to check the email account my husband had set up for me. No exaggeration.  I went to college in the early 90's {stop doing the math. I mean it. stop right now} and at the time was still able to avoid the computer almost altogether. I avoided the computer lab like it was my job. Dead serious.

To sum up: NO computer skills whatsoever. Fast forward to today.  I've spent the last two years learning {by trial and error and slower than most} how to navigate cyberspace and run and online biz.

Now that you know my background, imagine my delight when I decided to try my hand at making my own blog buttons, shop banner, and blog header...........and the finished product is pretty......OK!


{this blog~header}

{my other blog~header}


These are on no way perfect, but a delight to me because I feel very much like an old dog who may well be able to learn new tricks. I could never in a million years have pictured being able to undertake such a project!

Have you ever done something that previously you would have NEVER thought you would be able to do? ........LOVE to hear about you.....

Could I Be a Rockstar?

LOVING this dress from {Free People}
My only real concern is that it may not look quite as "at home"
on a 30 something housewife with chubby thighs wearing an apron,
wielding a vacuum instead of a guitar.......
I'll have to think about it :)
