The Art of Doing Stuff now has a shopping page. “What is that?!” you curious questioners ask. Well I’ll tell you. If you look over to the right hand sidebar of the page you’ll see something that’s never been there before. It says SHOP The Art of Doing Stuff. And if you click that button, that’s exactly what you can do.
Over the years I’ve received hundreds of emails from people asking what the best jigsaw is or what face cream I use. O.K. just one person has asked about my face cream and I’m fairly certain they were disappointed when I said I just buy whatever’s on sale a la Aunt Jean. I *wish* someone would ask me about my blush because THAT’S something to talk about. It’s called Multiple Orgasm. What’s not to like. Although having a multiple orgasm on your cheek sounds questionable I can assure you it’s good stuff.
The cream stick blush looks good on pretty much every skin tone and has almost invisible gold shimmer in it. It’s very J Low. I wear it every day (that I can be bothered to put makeup on and look like a Fly Girl).
Enough about blush (or rouge as Betty would call it), this post is about that Shop button on the right. Or in this case … below.
The Art of Doing Stuff shop is where you will find all the things I like, love, use and want. That jigsaw recommendation is in there (no one makes a better jigsaw than Bosch by the way), the blush, ALL of my favourite cookbooks (the ones I actually use as opposed to the ones that I bought because they had nice covers). There’s makeup and candles and my favourite tools and gadgets for the kitchen.
Like this chef’s knife I’ve used for the past 15 years.
It’s only in the beginning stages, and I’ll be adding more and more to it but I wanted to get it up and running before all of your Christmas shopping is done. I’ll bet you’re wondering how it works. What I’ve done is create a webpage that is linked to Amazon, Etsy, and other places where I’ve found things I think you’ll like and where you can buy the stuff that I have and love. So when you click to buy the beautiful set of glass cloches that I’m recommending you’ll actually be buying them from Amazon. They deal with the money, filling the order and sending it out. So you’re not relying on busy stupid me for that stuff. Which is good. A Fly Girl is a free spirited, dancing kind of girl. Not a stockroom girl.
Everything is categorized with sub-categories to make the shopping experience easy. At the moment the categories you can shop are Kitchen Stuff, Home & Garden Stuff, DIY/Workshop Stuff, and Beauty Stuff. I’ll be adding more categories as the shop page evolves.
The OTHER thing that makes this page a little different than the regular shopping page is each product has a little story from me. Why I like it, what makes it so great, when I bought it or who gave it to me. If it will make your cheeks glow.
If there’s anything I use/have that you’re wondering about or want me to list leave me a note in the comment section.
Back on Wednesday with a regular fun filled post on some easy DIY gift ideas, then Friday it’s going to be your chance to show off anything you’ve made, wrapped, crafted or decorated for the holiday season so if you have something photo worthy start taking shots now!
