my imaginary boyfriend blogs!

Jumping on a band wagon is no easy thing for my imaginary boyfriend. The boyfriend and I both have a bit of the Emersonian streak in us tending to "march to the beat of our own drummer" rather than follow a crowd. This trait has served us well at times(we've both managed to steer clear of any cults) and not so well at others (we just couldn't manage to involve ourselves in the likes of Lost, 24, or Prison Break even though we have, on really good authority, heard that these are really awesome shows).

Anyway. . . long, babbling story short, my imaginary boyfriend and I have finally started a blog! Welcome to the 21st century MIBF! The addy for the new blog is . Now I have to go pitch a special interest story to my local news affiliate about the crazy network that is MySpace!

Hearts and puppies,
erika & my imaginary boyfriend

Business Plan Brunch

So, its a little last minute to post this but...

We're going to have a brainstorming session on business plans over some good grub on Saturday, January 6 at 11am.

If you need to start a business plan or if you already have one that just needs an update for the new year, this is for you. We'll be doing exercises from a few books on writing your business plan, helping each other get started on or fine tune our plans, and possibly even have some experienced business-ladies attending to share their knowlege.

This will be the first session of several, but its a good place to get started!

To RSVP (and be sent directions/location) please email see ya saturday!

OH and in other news: we wanted to announce the new look and functionality of the NYC Craft Mafia webpage and message board! The message board is even easier to use and the website itself is twice as cute! So, if you're a crafter in the NYC area (or outside of it, for that matter) come check out our new public face!
