2012 Update

Since our last post, quite a few things have taken place!

  • Mike was promoted to Marketing Specialist at the credit union he works for.
  • Mike is now mid-semester in teaching a Plastics Materials and Processes class in an ID dept at a college downtown. He has a big interview/presentation this Friday for a tenure-track position in their department.  Let’s keep our fingers crossed!
  • We developed multiple new products for our online stores including Checkers Sets, Magnetic Photo Frames, Wall Art, Pet ID Tags, and Bingo Sets
  • We’ve added a number of new products from our suppliers including some additional Nutcrackers, Dance Apparel, Quilted Tote Bags, almost 50 dance book titles, Dance Class Music, and quite a few imported items we’ve put in the “Closeout” section of BalletGiftShop.com
  • We started a facebook page and tumblr blog for our Ballet Gift Shop online store… still working on getting more likes/followers.
  • We hired our first contractor to help prepare orders during the 2011 season (our biggest season yet!).
  • Made 600+ “Unit Decorations” for a division of the US Army.
  • Both of Mike’s siblings have moved to new apt’s.
  • Friends have gotten engaged and/or married and I can think of at least one new addition to the family in the past few months.
  • A snowy 2011-2012 winter.  There was at least one storm that left 16″ on the ground.  It’s easy to feel short in stature in that kind of weather!
