Designer and Illustrator Lisa Stewart to Share Her Story and Her Products
I am pleased to announce that award winning designer and illustrator Lisa Stewart of EC Stewart will join us tomorrow night on Indie Shopping.TV for an evening of "Cocktails and Conversation." Among other things, Lisa designs and illustrates wonderful home decor, accessories and paper goods, including the beautifully designed "Artful Living Luxe Journals" pictured below. You can follow Lisa on Twitter @ecstewart.
Indie Shopping is More Fun Than Ever!
Based on mountains of feedback we received after the first show last week, we made some exciting changes to make Indie Shopping.TV even more fun for everyone! Keep reading to learn more!
1. Evening Time Slot
Many people told us that they were unable to access the show from the computers at work or during the middle of the day. Since most women shop online during the late evenings and night hours, our new evening format makes it easier and more convenient for you to gather around your laptop with our Indie and your friends.
2. Longer Show Format
Lots of people said that 10 minutes was not enough time for them to get to know the story behind the Indie. Our new 30 minute show format allows viewers to get to know the Indie and the inspiring story behind his or her unique products.
The raffles were a hit last week so we are continuing them. During the show, viewers have a chance to win something fun and wonderful that has been supplied by one of our media partners. Tomorrow night, one of the things we'll be raffling off is a "Words To Live By" tee shirt supplied by actress, creativity coach, breast cancer survivor Denise Hart of Words To Live By. You can follow Denise on Twitter @motivationmama.
4. Cocktails & Conversation
Because it's Friday night, we thought it would be fun to have a sort of Girls Night In. The show starts at 10:15pm EST, but the chat will open up at 10:00pm. We invite you to join in early, start chatting and share the beverage you are drinking during the show. It can be water, tea, a glass of wine, your favorite cocktail or anything you enjoy and wish to share. "Cocktails" are not necessary of course (my "cocktail" of choice during the show will be good old H2O!), but it sounded so good with "conversation," so we just couldn't resist.
5. How to Join Us!
It's easy to join us. Just log onto Indie Shopping.TV at 10:00pm EST with your favorite beverage in hand, and get ready for some fun Cocktails & Conversation with your Indie-loving friends and with Lisa Stewart, who will share the story behind how she has turned her unique talents and gifts into a thriving business.
Oh! And get a little last minute shopping done as well! Lisa will be offering special pricing on selected items that can be shipped as the perfect gift for special people on your list who are weary of the "same old, same old."
