New Year, New Gear!

Hi, all! I know it's been quite some time since I've filled you in on happenings. A LOT has been going on! Since last May, we were working on buying our first home! We really dreamed of having more space for our art studio and a place that we could morph into our own. And it happened! We closed on November 20th and moved in December. We LOVE it! Now, we are not totally unpacked and settled in yet, so you'll have to wait for a bit for the unveiling via photos. But the most exciting part is that we now have our dream art studio, which we call Liquid Star Base. We ripped up the carpet in the entire living/dining area and made it into our studio.

In other news, I was laid off at the end of December, so I'm looking for an exciting full time opportunity in sales support in Austin. If you hear of anything, let me know! While I'm job hunting, the new studio has inspired new Glint Gear! I've redesigned the cosmetic zipper pouch. I've increased the size to 5"x8" and made the bottom a roomy 2", so it now can hold more stuff! Also, these will be mostly made of scrap pieces of Glint Gear painted canvas and fabric remnants. I'm calling them Odds 'N Ends pouches. Get it? Double meaning... gotta love that! Let me know what you think. The one in the photo above is named Redvolution. I haven't posted it to my Etsy shop yet, but look for the new pouches and other new Glint Gear creations on my Etsy shop soon! I'll be giving you more bang for your buck with the new larger pouches and will be offering them at the same $20 price, so
I've put all of the other smaller zipper pouches on my shop on sale for $15.

Any-who... hope your 2010 is off to a great start!
