On the off chance you haven't seen this elsewhere,

If you've talked to Dani and I over the past year or so, you know we've been busy. Busy busy. Crazy busy. We're running around selling jewelry and building websites and working jobs and neglecting basics like vacuuming and dishes, and it's gotten to the point that something has got to give. So, we've sat down and thought about it, and decided to pursue the path of fewest pants -- we're shaking things up a bit* and going full time freelance.

Cue the gasp orchestra.

What does this mean? For us, it's a massive revolution in lifestyle. For YOU, it doesn't mean a heck of a lot except to know that we're officially open for business, and what was a small side thing is now our bread and butter. We design websites, we do graphics and logos, we host internet things, we do copywriting and copyediting, we produce new media content, we advise you on your new media content, we can design email advertising and newsletter layouts, we can fix your computer, and we can talk to your group of people about all that and a lot more.

We're not begging you to hire us**,  we're just asking that you keep us in mind during your day to day. Does your company hire freelancers or temps for projects? Do you know someone who wants to sell things online? Does your church want to teach its members about sane internet use? Heck, does your church's website need updating? We're open for business and ready and willing to do what you need. Our prices are good, and like all new freelancers we're a little bit desperate for work.

So, please, keep us in mind. If you're not sure if we can do something, call, ask, email, tweet or send up smoke signals. We're not just flexible, adaptable and good at finding fixes to problems, we've also both had bizarre careers that left Dani and I with a strange and broad collection of skills. Check out our newly revamped website to find out more.

*A note about Sweet Tarragon: It's no secret that we really dig the jewelry thing. We'll be taking a bit of a break from that in the coming year to pour all of our energy into hot glue media, where it needs to be right now. We have plenty of shows booked through September, so we'll be finishing out the season, and we plan to keep going with our consignment gigs, home shows, and custom work. Sweet Tarragon will still be open for business, but on a much smaller scale.

**That's a lie. Yes, we are.

*bows* thank you honey.

You are also free to wait until we're done programming our own albatross ecommerce site, too ;-)

We're actually working on an e-commerce product geared specifically for small craft businesses...would you be interested in being a beta tester? we're looking at sometime around october of this year for a soft launch. you'd get the whole kit and kaboodle free in exchange for testing, except for the domain reg (which costs us money).

Hm...talk to me more. I have some interest.

Well, fair enough - any business I get that'd be appropriate for you, you'll have it. :)

I hope you'll feed me any translation business in my languages in return? :D

awesome, thank you! I will definitely return the favor if I run into anything, and it'll be a case of "can you handle x-ylvanian? I can't remember". Your repertoire seems to keep expanding, somehow.

You got an e-mail address I could forward a possible client to? I'll send you his e-mail first, and if you think you can handle it, you can go at it. The constellation of his needs is a little off my track.

that would be mer @ hotgluemedia.com
