New Ideas, New Products



One of the things I like best about being an owner of a crafting micro-business is that I can take time to grow at my own pace. Not necessarily all the time, mind you. There are things such as custom order & craft show deadlines that can take time away from my creative spark. However, when I start coming up with new ideas, there's little I can do these days before they find a way to creep out.

Above is a sneak peek at my new Convo Calculator. I've decided to start it when my cousins are coming into town and I should be cleaning. Always a good idea, right?

These ideas help keep our minds fresh & keep our brands evolving. I've found that reading through the Etsy Success emails & Storque blog posts have helped me to keep asking myself questions about which way I want to take nerd JERK.

There are so many ways I'd love to go and so many things I'd love to do.

So, custom orders & craft shows aside, I just wanted to let people know that I'm still alive & kicking. I'm planning some craft shows of my own, working on comics, and coming up with a few new collections for the Holiday Season.

Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for developments in this area. And I'll make sure to keep you updated.

I can share that I've come up with a Holiday Season Mission Statement for nerd JERK:

Giving the Gift of Awesome - One Geek at a Time.

If you've been following the Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp series, you'll know it's a real challenge to try to get ready for the Holiday Season. Feel free to share how you're preparing your shop for the Holidays.

  1. I have to say I love this calculator. I remember in highschool thinking it was the coolest thing to say simple things to your friends in math class that way without looking like you were passing a note.
    Your designs have such charm. They are illustrations in 3D!:)
