Here are three images I love from today. Two of them obviously go together, while the third, doesn’t in any explicit way.
anyhow, enjoy the photos! Hopefully I will be feeling better ASAP!
The other day on my facebook fanpage, I asked you guys what you wanted to see more of from Markhed. The answer that I heard loud and clear was more dark and creepy! When I am creating, I like to play and try out many ideas, which is why, when you look my shop, you can find a lot of different ideas going on. It’s best, I find, to play out some ideas all the way to the end . Because if I don’t, it just sticks around my head and bugs me. It’s almost like it keeps saying: “hey, hey, try me, try me”. It can get annoying. Lately I’ve been following my polygonal ideas, and I plan to continue that exploration, but to also keep working on some creepy and dark pieces, because ultimately, that’s where my heart lies.
Just wanted to explain my creative process a bit to you all, just in case you were wondering.
First of all, let me just say a huge thank you to all of you out there for the phenomenal sales weekend! This past weekend’s sale was by far, the most successful weekend of sales in Markhed’s history, I could really tell a lot of you had waited to snatch up some special pieces!
I wanted to say thank you, and also to let you know that due to the enormous volume of orders that have flowed in, I have new “order by” deadlines for the Christmas season. The new deadlines are as follows:
Christmas SHIPPING Order by Deadlines:
orders < $100 order by Dec 1st 2010
orders > $100 order by Dec 7th 2010
If you order <$100 & would like faster shipping, an extra charge of 12 CDN will be applied.
order by Dec 10th 2010
ORDERING PERIOD OVER all items ordered now will arrive after the 24th
Thank you, again, for being so great!
I’ve decided to simplify my sales this weekend at my etsy shop so that everyone can have an equal chance to own a unique handmade piece made by me. The sale price will automatically be adjusted on Etsy, their times will be the following:
Black Friday Sale: Nov. 26th, 5:00 am EST – Nov. 27th, 4:00 am EST
Cyber Monday Sale: Nov. 29th 5:00 am EST – Nov. 29th 11:00 pm EST
Facebook fans will have the advantage of an ADDITIONAL SAVINGS on top of these already discounted prices, AND only facebook fans will save all weekend long. The details of that sale will only be announced through a Facebook note.
I thought I would drop in to announce something I’m so excited about! I’m closing in on 800 fans on my facebook fanpage, and I can say without hesitation, there has never been a better time to be a fan of Markhed on Facebook!
Why? You may ask?
Well, next Friday at 9am, I will be announcing a super secret super amazing sale JUST for facebook fans. Trust me when I say, this will be the best one yet! So join soon, because if you aren’t a fan, you won’t know about the sale, and you won’t be able to take part! SO go to facebook and press like!
I am a procrastinator. Oh, how I’ve tried to get myself to act early, especially when it comes to Christmas time! This year will be different, I already have all my gifts thought out.

Here in Montreal, our Thanksgiving has been long past, a whole month. Black Friday (the day after Thanksgiving, Nov. 25th 2010) is something that I was unfamiliar with until last year, when I was living in Portland Oregon. In the US, Black Friday kicks off the holiday shopping season. It is traditionally when shops have great sales to entice holiday shoppers.
It can also be a huge headache to go to the mall that day! SO I am joining the fun and offering a great one day only black Friday sale, and guess what?
You don’t even need to LEAVE THE HOUSE! HEE HAW!
This sale is gonna be so awesome, I’m only going to announce it a week from Friday (tomorrow), in a big announcement right here on my blog!! Stay tuned to get all the details!
