Different Collections Fashion Business

Ever thought of starting your very own fashion business? If you answered yes, try and buy Wholesale Clothes before beginning your business. Buying real Wholesale Clothes which are branded or not branded, can provide you with great price leverage and you can resell in your online store for large profit margins. Purchasing Wholesale Clothes can provide you with multiple benefits as a businessman. Businessmen who buy Wholesale Clothes and resell them at a cheap price can amass massive profits from their online clients. The reason being because they can get their products at a very low prices.

Buying Wholesale men's clothes online is a great option for those who look for top-quality, yet economical apparel. Similarly, it also can prove helpful for people looking to set up their business by reselling men's apparel. Many, however, see online wholesale purchases as very risky, especially in terms of quality. The truth is that for as long as you know how to do it properly and securely, online wholesale purchases can be comparable in quality to those shown in local boutiques.

An obvious advantage of purchasing men's wholesale clothing online is that it is very convenient. Everything is done online, from shopping and item selection to payment. You get access to different online stores both here and abroad, providing you better opportunities to sell unique clothes for men.

Wholesale Ladies Clothing come in all shapes and sizes. This means that, ideally, ladies' clothes should also come in a wide range of sizes. Unfortunately, many stores and boutiques sell mostly regular size apparel. Petite ladies who wear size 0-12 clothes are often left out in the cold. The same goes for petite plus size ladies. They all have a very difficult time finding stylish clothes that fit them well. They are sometimes forced to buy clothes that are more suitable for teenagers. Selling clothes for petite and petite plus ladies can turn out to be a good way to make a lot of money.

Sometimes the wholesalers invite the garment shopkeepers and customers to visit their outlets. In this way they also fulfill the marketing goals of pricing and promotion of their goods. This leads to a successful and complete wholesale clothing plan. There are different categories in which these clothing are offered. The most important demarcation is between the men's and ladies' wear. Both these sub-divisions include a number of clothing items different from each other.

Different collections are launched from time to time according to the changing fashion and trends. In men's wear the recent collection of half sleeved shirts has been launched with different designs in lining and checks. It is most favorable to contact the required platforms by the contact numbers given on their websites. This makes dealing and bargaining easier as it is a one to one conversation and this makes the corporate dealing easier.

Separation Agreements and Australian Family Law

Society today is very different to a time when marriage was for life and the idea of a couple 'living in sin' was... well... frowned upon to say the least. Here are the statistics for today.

Statistically in a group of 10 people;

Two to three will have had either 2 or 3 defacto type relationships. One or two will have had 3 or more. FIVE will be heading for there first split!

So with this in mind it could be a very costly exercise to have the potential of 3 or more costly settlements. However if you and your (ex) partner can decide amicably then it doesn't need to be drawn out and expensive.

Here are some legal aspects to what defines 'separation'. The Family Law Act states a separated couple as;

To Grey or Not To Grey? Why Are Women Aroused By Words?

Whispering 'sweet nothings' to your darling is considered the language of those who are in love. When it comes to dating a woman, a man has to bring his 'A' game at all times or else he will be shown the door.

There are certain things in relationships that will sway a woman towards you that we are all familiar with; nice clothes, jewellery, cars and fine dining among others. But none are more powerful than the use of the right words to arouse a woman. Saying the right thing to a woman is the basis on which many romantic relationships are formed, which is usually sealed with a kiss afterwards.

What is it about words that excite women to the point of falling under its spell? Let us take a look at what we already know. The romance books industry is huge business, where authors are paid handsomely, to use words that paint images of lust, romance, passion and sex. If a man and a woman read the same romance books, their reactions are guaranteed to be different.

Why Read 'The 5 Love Languages'?

When I first read Gary Chapman's The 5 Love Languages, I was close to tears. "Why hadn't I come across this book years ago?" I thought.

For years I thought that men and women weren't meant to be together because men were from Mars and women were from Venus. I had seen too many difficult relationships so much so that I had no faith left in getting married.

I had grown up seeing very stubborn men and I always thought that all men were difficult. I am not talking about a country where men oppressed women. I grew up in a country where women had a lot of power. Having said that, I still believed that men weren't easy species to live with under the same roof. It wasn't surprising that homosexuality was on the rise.

However, when I read this book, I realised that I had seen only half the picture. It wasn't fair to point the finger solely at men.

Help To Get Over A Broken Relationship

A broken relationship is difficult to deal with. Even a simple fall out with a friend or acquaintance leaves a person feeling under the weather. When that fall out is between you and someone you have been intimate with, or had believed you were close to, your mind and body feel as if you have been run over by a bus. Your life feels as if it has been derailed.

This feeling of having been cut adrift is extremely uncomfortable, unsettling and confidence squashing. No matter how secure a person you are, when a relationship breaks down you are affected in a huge way. Your emotions and equilibrium inevitably become greatly impacted, and not in a nice way.

For some people this is unfamiliar territory. For others a broken relationship can trigger a state of déjà vu. Past experience of broken relationships does not however make ones reactions and responses any better. It can in fact simply make matters a whole lot worse.

New Phyliss Harris stamps

I love, love, love the artwork of Phyliss Harris.  Besides being a rubber stamp artist she is an illustrator for Highlights (the childrens magazine). 
I recently started carrying a line of her stamps in the shop... but I'm sure they wont last long!

The card above was one I stumbled upon while browsing FaceBook.  It was made by Stacy Sheldon and her blog is here:

Stacy's Memory Triggers

I've included a few images of just a sample of some of the stamp sets I have in stock...

August Card Class

A new month... a new card class.
My Favorite Things has new dies and new stamps every month.  The mouse card above uses both, I especially love the Sentiment Strips dies for words.  We will also be using the Copic markers and adding a little Flower Soft in the basket.

The Riley card uses Core paper which we will sand to give it a worn look.

The "gender neutral" baby card uses a new onesie die with the matching stamp set. There is even a mini clothes pin for an added touch.

Its wedding season, this one would make a great card for a wedding or anniversary.

Changito summer

It seems like its been forever since I stamped with one of my favorite kind of stamps... Changito.
I made this birthday card for my brother-in-law who lives in Hawaii and surfs all the time!  Its perfect for him.
I added a little bit of the sand color of Flower Soft under his feet, love this stuff... looks just like real sand!
The saying at the bottom of the card came from the "Make a Splash"  Pure Innocence set.

Of coarse if you have the surfer, you need the Changito "pool party" stamp to match.

Cards for mom

 Its time to start thinking about cards for Mother's Day soon.

On the card above I used the My Favorite Things die called "Paper Doll Border" to cut out the doll chain and the matching stamp set for the words.  I wanted something a little different than just saying Happy Mother's Day on a card.

If you came to the last card class then you made the Easter card above.  I used the exact layout and papers but changed the SRM clear stickers to make it a Mother's Day card instead. 

April Card Class

 In the April card class we will be stamping 5 cards with envelopes.  The cards will be different occasions like birthday, get well, thank you, etc.

We will be using different supplies and embellishments to make the cards.  Such as Copic markers, embossing folders, cutting dies, and more.

The bear card  uses a paper glaze to make the honey look realistic.

This card below uses one of the Hero Arts/Sizzix matching stamps and embossing folder sets.

Supplies to bring:
adhesive (tape runner), pop dots, scissors.

$15.00, Class fee must be paid to hold your reservation!  I will be out of town the first week of April so check the store hours before stopping by for payments.

Oh Baby!

I made these cards using dies and stamps from My Favorite Things.
They have a set of alphabet dies that I spelled out "Oh baby" and "cheers" with.

The tags were made with the notched tag set.  Its a set of stamps with matching dies to decorate the tags with.  That is where the onesie and clover came from.

I just added a brad and a mini clothes pin for a little decoration!

New cutting dies

New dies from Memory Box have come in.  I love the cutting dies from this company, they are very intricate in their designs and so pretty.

March Card Class

 March will be here soon, and hopefully so will the signs of spring!  I think my March card class feels a little spring-y...

 In this class we will be stamping 5 cards with envelopes.  We will be using quite a bit of Copic marker blending and some other techniques.  The card above uses flocking on the teddy bear and her blanket. (A bit hard to see in the photo.)

We will be making a card for Easter too.  This one isnt stamped, it uses the SRM clear stickers.

 The card above is a bit dark, I'm really bad at photographing navy cards... they always look black.  Both the cards above and below have sections popped up for dimension, the balloon and the butterfly net are raised.

Class supplies needed:
adhesive, pop dots, small paper triming scissors.

If you like Cyber Riley...

If you like "Cyber Riley" on the computer...

Then you will love "Cell Phone Riley"!
This embossing folder in the background goes perfect with either stamp.  These cards are great for any teenagers or any of your technically addicted friends.  The tag die is just the right size for most of the Riley images and can be run through your Cuttlebug or Sizzix.
