Latest projects and news

My supply shop is now closed. I am a little sad, but ready to move on. I have been looking for new ideas for my bottle caps and I came up with a couple of new designs. I made a few "initial" necklaces and I created some girly "attitude" images and made ready to use caps from them.

After stuggling for months with the issue, I have decided not to sell any more celebrity or logo items online out of fear of copyright violations. I cannot afford to get sued over a $2.00 item. You would think that they would appreciate the free advertising, but I guess they see it as making money off of something that they created. I can understand that, too. I am straying away from the "everyone else is doing it, so it must be okay" way of thinking. Let them get sued.

Well, I guess that's it. I am going to try to update more often!

My aunt is a breast cancer survivor, I think those pink ribbon buttons you have are a hoot!

How cute are your bottle caps?! I understand protecting your business and steering clear of copyright infringement issues. I did small business consulting for years and I can tell you that the success of a small business is to run it like a big business from the inception. All bases covered-no matter how pedantic it appears at first glance, as your business blooms you'll be glad you did. Good luck.
