Apps, Can’t live without them.

We all have them, we can’t make it thru the day without them…Our Apps.
I am thankful to these creative people who help me run my business, organize my life and saved my sanity with a little fun.

He is just a few of my favorites
Etsy & EBay –
I buy almost all my supplies from these 2 apps. Supporting other small business is very important to me. While getting great deals, I get to communicate directly with other business owners & artist.

Photogenie2 -irreplaceable!!!
All my photos for my website, business cards & promo items I edit and create with this app. Most of us take our photos with our smartphone, It’s wonderful to take the picture and edit it with such a professional tool

Business Card Designer(By Katsushi)
My new fav, it’s so easy to create custom photo business cards & even discount cards for clients. With no shipping cost or waiting. I can design the professional product the way I want. And I can save, email or send to print right from my phone

Square- changed my life!!!
Swipe credit cards & cash payments right from my phone. It’s so easy, with one swipe we both have the security of their signature and the receipt is immediately sent by email or text. One of my favorites is you can even take a picture to put with on their receipt (so we both can remember).

Here is some others I can’t do without
Netflix
(love to work while catching up on my movies & tv shows)

Sound hound –
Ever wonder what is the name of that song?
It will pull up the song with the info, song sample, lyrics, you tube choices, last tweets and concert dates. Bonus, it can play my music from my ipod library (with lyrics for me to sing along)

And for fun, Any Dash Game I can’t do without. Hotel Dash, Cooking Dash, Diner Dash & Wedding Dash 🙂

Well this is just a few of my favs, what’s yours?

Uhaneknits in Ocean beach

We had a great time at the 2012 Ocean Beach Fine Arts & Crafts Fair on Fire Island NY. The crowd was wonderful, welcoming & supportive. The talent there was great, artist from all over, I loved it.
Thank you to Rita & the Ocean Beach community for a successful day. If you are looking for a great vacation spot or just a day at the beach, take the ferry over to Ocean Beach 🙂

Don’t forget to check out Uhaneknits new website and our new designs.

Until next time 🙂

Uhane knits preview

I wanted to created something totally different for the summer & this design I think is my favorite. My new skull clutch is hand knit in a beautiful black cotton yarn with a elegant sheen. The 4 finger ring frame is a definite show stopper. What I love most, its actually 3 looks in 1. Its a clutch, handbag and the chain strap for a shoulder bag.
I have worn this bag everywhere over the last few days (even the supermarket) & literally every place I went someone asked me about this bag.

What’s New for Uhaneknits

Working hard to bring new designs to Uhane knits for the summer. Im having a ball trying out new yarns and patterns. My love for wool haven’t wavered but I absolutely have fell in love with 100%Bamboo yarn. It’s elegant sheen and beautiful texture has been a joy to work with. I’ve also been working with mercerized cotton and my old favorite nylon yarn (that I have faithfully used as an accent to my handbags or for my accessory belts).
I am stepping out of my box & I’m very excited to show a sneak peak very soon.
We will be listing he locations to our vending dates where you will be able to see Uhane knits up close and personal.
Until next time….
