5yr Anniversary Sale!

If you are seeing this from the https://fonetik.wordpress.com website,
please go to http://neawear.com from now on! This blog has moved there :)

If you read this from the Creativadoration email subscription,
make sure to go to http://neawear.com and register to the email subscription there (top of the right sidebar)!

Thank you SO MUCH for following me around!! :)

Nea is now 5 years old! Well well! WOOHOO! :) Wow, time passes by so fast sometimes!

To celebrate, I am having my annual anniversary 15% OFF SALE in my Etsy Shop! Just use the code “5Bdays” at checkout from August 15th to 21st! :)

I also decided to redo this whole site/blog as a gift to, well, myself!

My now ex-blog Creativadoration had more than 540,000 visits in the past 5.5 years of it’s existence, and that is something I am very proud of! But, I felt it was time for the blog to merge with Nea, so that now everything can be found in one single place!

I really hope you like it! :)

I had much fun designing this new website, my ex-graphic designer past coming in handy! Then the wonderful Paule created some super cute illustrations for me for the header and footer! After the look was done and ready, Valérie took everything and coded it into WordPress, so that what you see right now is exactly what I designed! And let’s not forget that the whole idea of this new merged website/blog was a suggestion from Guillaume and his marketing point of view! Thank you all for working with me on this! :)

Now, go shop 15% off, people! :D

Never Too Late

Jamais trop tard print, by Eva Juliet.

The end of 2009 and the beginning of 2010 were (still are) very hard for me. So much has happened in the past few weeks, I can barely keep count of all the shitty stuff… I find myself unmotivated (and sincerely, with no much will to work on that, yet anyway…), kinda depressed, and lost.

The only good news are that, apparently, a new hard disk just cost $80, and that in times of emotional need, you really can see clearly the friends you have and hold onto that.

On the other hand, I guess I was due for a few fresh starts… One of my friends thinks life usually works in cycles of 7years, so I guess that at 28yo, it’s the perfect time to start a couple of  new chapters.

I’ve grown and changed quite a lot in the past 3.5 years, and I was kinda falling back on my old ways recently. So perhaps this is life’s way to turn me back in the right direction, using many big bangs to make sure I turn around for real.

Thankfully, the handmade community is always there to inspire me and sometimes, distract me (we all need to turn the switch off once in a while, right?), so that’s gonna be very helpful in the long run!

Speaking of handmade, how great is that poster!? I really want it!

“It’s never too late to be who you want to be”.
Yeah?
I guess now is when I’ll get to figure that out.

Pill Poppin’

The Medicine Chest, by carriembecker.

So the Holiday rush seems kinda over, even tho I have to be productive in the next weeks to bring back the stock to a normal level to supply future orders and also shops!

But it’s good to catch a breath… Or is it?

Well not really… I’ve been pretty much in bed the last few days. Doctor’s verdict? Laryngitis, fever (at least that seems to have ended) and sinus problems. Plus it’s really hard to breathe normally & sleep well with all this. Gosh, really annoying!!!

Anyway, hopefully I’ll be back on my feet soon!

The good thing is, I can totally prepare blog posts while taking it easy on the couch. hehe ;)

Weekend of Numbers

Hiding from winter

Lovin’ my Spratter & Jayne neckwarmer!!

What a wonderful weekend I just had!! I went skating with my boyfriend at Mount-Royal, and thanks to his steady arm and his 2-3 nights a week of hockey playing experience, I didn’t even fall once (had not skated in something like 15 years before that!). I always prefered Winter to Summer (used to be my favorite season, when I snowboarded), even tho now I like Fall and Spring the most. But this was a really nice Winter moment :)

Anyway, this weekend was also great because: my virtual life hit 2 milestones, too!

First, this blog hit the 200,000 visits mark!! YAY!! The 100,000 mark was in March 08, so let’s just say I’m really proud of that second half in less than a year! Thank you so much everyone!! It’s means a lot that you are all sticking around!

And second, my Neawear Etsy Shop passed the 5000 shop hearts mark! That’s like at the very least 5000 people who taught my whole shop (and not just an item or two) deserved to be bookmarked! How hot is that right?? So, look out for more great handmade stuff I’m working on for 2009, ’cause I’m not stoping anytime soon! :)
