ask, ask, ask away!

have any burning questions for little old me? ask, ask, ask away!
the first half of next week the blog will be going through a little transition.
(hold me...)
i'll be switching over to wordpress and the site will be down a few days, so what better time to spend preparing a few question and answer posts!? i will answer (almost) anything - and would love to share some of my secrets here with you.

ready, set, go!
keep it classy, eh? mom is reading. (hi mom!)

You are too-too cute Jess!
1. (same question mentioned above) Why wordpress?
2. How many hours each week do you purely devote to designing?
3. Did you and Mique always get along so well?

I was totally going to say the same thing as Lisa! You are adorable. ;)

1) What other creative things do you enjoy doing? Do you find that sometimes you just need a break from all the rosettes?

2) What do you use for your curls? My curls are currently tamed with Herbal Essences Totally Twisted mousse, but they don't look as soft and nice as yours!

3) Do you like to read? Do you have a favorite book/genre?

Have a lovely evening, Jessica!

2. What goals do you have for Allora Handmade this year?

Here's mine---
How many flowers do you make a week?
What's your favorite item that you make?
What is your favorite thing to do in your "spare" time- yes, whatever that is ;) hehe?

Good luck on the transition- it'll go great!! Can hardly wait to see the "new" do!

Hi Jess ~

Describe a typical everyday day in your life. How do you balance being a mom, wife, business, you time, blog, QBM, cook, clean, etc... hehehehe..

Good luck with the transition!!

Hi Jess! I just love what you've done to create such a cohesive and recognizable brand throughout the handmade community.

What would you say were your most productive advertising efforts? What advice would you give to a newbie (me!) working toward building my brand and beginning to seek advertising opportunities?

Thanks so much!

1. That picture of you is so silly, but you still look gorgeous. How did you manage that one?

2. Will you share a few tips for growing a blog?

3. Do you ever get sick of making/looking at/wearing rosettes? (I have a hard time making the same thing over and over again.)

I have been thinking of switching over to wordpress. I'd love to know how it goes. hmmmm Maybe I should go for it.
