Corner News-May 21, 2016

Hello everyone.  Apologies for no blog post yesterday.  I was studying for finals and it completely slipped my mind.

So…anyway.  Onto the corner news!

I am done with finals!  Hooray!  I can now spend the entire summer working and working on blog posts and getting rid of my terrible farmer’s tan.  Yeah!

And I am having another Posh Party tomorrow!  I’m having a lot of friends over and we are going to have a nice little get together.  Hopefully I can get more stuff posted and ready to sell.  I am excited to have friends over to just have fun and hang out.  It will be nice and relaxing to have people over.

So, that’s what has been and will be happening.  I hope that you all have a great weekend and I will post more about the party on Friday!

2 Projects in 20 Minutes (ish)

So, this week, I have 2 projects.  I was going to split the into 2 separate blogs, but realized that they were too short and sweet to post separately.  So they are here together!  Because, as you know, sharing is caring.

The first thing on the docket is a Poshmark binder.

I was looking through my Poshmark sales (shameless plug: follow me on Poshmark @2smallofacloset), and even though I have a full spreadsheet on my computer of my sales and all the information, I wondered what would happen if my computer completely died.  Like, blue screen of death, never turning back on died.  How would I have all the information besides on the app?

Oh yeah, I have all the info on the app.

But what if something happens to my phone?????

Anyway, I decided that I wanted to print out all the information on separate pieces of paper to file in a binder.  It would be easy for me to look through and find out my sales and what my items are selling for.

Supplies Pink Binder.jpg

Here are my supplies: A pink binder (duh), a pink folder with a cute typewriter on the front, pink and purple glitter tape, pink and purple gel pens, and my sales paperwork.  I also used a hole punch and scissors, which are not pictured.

The first thing I did was take the pink glitter tape and line the top and the bottom of the binder.  I just used a long strip and went along the edge of the binder.  I then took the purple tape to make a second strip on the binder.  I finally added two small strips on the spine of the binder so I know which side is the top and the bottom.

The second thing I did was hole punch all of the paperwork.  To make sure that they were all hole punched the same distance apart (because I don’t actually own a 3 hole punch), I placed one paper in the folder and hole punched it.  Of course, I then took that paper and used it for the rest of the papers.

Hole Punched Papers

The third thing I did was write single sale or bundled sale on the paperwork.  This is just for “office work” so I know if my bundled sales are working or not.  I wrote single sale in pink and bundled sale in purple, and even added a glitter tab to each paper so they are easy to page through.

And this is the final product.  I’m really happy that I got it to work and look this nice.  It took me approximately 10 minutes to put it all together.  It will take a little longer if you still have to type out all of your sales from Poshmark.

Pink Binder Final

The second project I have is a nautical plaque.  Mom and I found a blue piece of wood in our shed and I took it to figure out what I wanted to do with it.

Supplies Blue Board

Here are my supplies: a blue piece of wood, rope, design of your choice, and sparkly glitter glue.  You can use paint if you want, but I found this glue at Michaels and had to buy it because of reasons.

The first thing I did was hot glue the rope to the board.  When I got it around the edges, I cut the end and hot glued the end of the rope so it wouldn’t fray.  I don’t know if it will help, but it worked for me.

Board with Rope

The second thing I did was trace my design onto the board.  I found this compass on Google images and decided to use it on the board.  I covered the back of the piece of paper with pencil and then traced it onto the board.  The only issue I had with this was that it was a little difficult to see the design on the board because it is blue.

The third thing I did was use the silver glitter glue to cover the pencil design.  I really like how it turned out, but I do wish that it was a little thicker.  I thought that it would be much brighter where you could see the design better.  Oh well, I still like it.

Compass Close Up

And here is the final product.

Board Final

I like how it turned out.  It’s very simple and perfect to hang in a nautical themed room (maybe my living room when I move into a house?).  I am happy with how it turned out and can’t wait to actually have it as a decoration.

So, I hope this gave you some inspiration for some easy projects.  They took about 20 minutes to finish both of them all together.  The Poshmark binder has already come in handy when looking at sales and the board will come in handy very soon.  Thanks for stopping by and I can’t wait to see you tomorrow for the Corner News!

Posh N Sip Party! How I Got a Friend Started in PoshMark

Hello everyone!  I am here to plug an app that I have been using and it is great!  (By the way, this isn’t sponsored in any way, I just really like the app).  If you want to clear out your closet of clothes that you don’t want anymore and make a little money doing it, I suggest you use PoshMark.

PoshMark is an app that has been around for about 5 years.  It is like Ebay, but for anything fashion.  Clothes, shoes, jewelry, purses, make-up: you name it, it is probably there.  Everything is new or gently used and the app makes it very easy to sell your items and ship them to fellow poshers.

So, I hosted my first Posh N Sip on March 24th.  It is a party where you get together with your friends and family and help them get their closets started and help them make some extra money.  I invited quite a few people, but because of circumstances, I only had one guest.

I gave Bekah the rundown of how the app works.  I explained how to post items, how to make your pictures look good, and how to make sure that your items are seen by more people.  Here we were, both working on some items to sell!

Bekah

I love the white blanket that I use as my backdrop.  Bekah was using a pretty piece of fabric as her backdrop to make sure all her pictures have some similarity.

Here are the items I posted in my closet!

I have a Forever 21 shirt on top, a Mudd shirt on the bottom, and Out Jeans.  I hope they sell soon and can be better in someone else’s closet.

If you are interested in PoshMark, it is free and very easy to use.  If you have any questions, feel free to ask away and I will answer them as best as I can.  If you have a PoshMark account and are looking for more closets to follow check out my closet, @2smallofacloset, and Bekah’s closet, @bek21.

Corner News-February 27, 2016

Hello and welcome to another exciting and compelling edition of the corner news!  Prepare yourself for some life changing stories and pictures worth 1000 words!

Or, you know, just another regular corner news works too.

poshmark

I have a Poshmark account.  Now, it is under my fashion blogs name, 2smallofacloset, but you are more than welcome to browse through my items.  I don’t have that much right now, but soon!  Soon I will have more items posted for people to look at.

If you don’t know what Poshmark is, it is a app that you download for free and you can buy and sell name brand items.  You can sell everything from Forever 21 to UGG Australia, basic tank top to quilted leather boots.  And items are being sold at a great price.  I purchased a pair of Torrid shorts for $15 when they are originally $40!  And they are exactly how the seller described them.  You can follow my closet and start your own if you are interested!

Dog Sign

The second thing I want to show you is the adorable sign.  I bought this while in Hawaii (yes, I know…it’s not really Hawaiian).  But it think that it is absolutely perfect for my family.  It’s hanging in my room as a reminder of how important dogs are in my life.

And that’s the news!  I know, not too exciting, but still interesting.  Hope you all have a great weekend!
