My First Curated Treasury

 I decided to try my hand at creating an etsy treasury.

Here it is: http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list.php?room_id=134261

Wire Weekend With The Masters

Calling all aspiring jewelry designers; here is an event in Dana Point, California you might want to look into.

Great thing about it is you can sign up for only one class or more if you have the cash to spend.

Keeping Hackers At Bay

Unfortunately, it is becoming harder and  harder to keep hackers at bay. We have an element out there who are constantly trying to rip us off or shut us down using fake ads, log in pages, etc.

How are we supposed to know what is real and what is fake? Like the current Facebook, "Hilarious Video" post asking you to "click" to add a video player so that you can see the "Hilarious Video". Do not click on this if you see it on your Facebook page. It is a scam to add Malware on your computer.

I found this article on the finance page on Yahoo and thought I would pass it along; contains some useful information and food for thought.
