    June Event Listing

    Very nice to see little events and activities like this being boosted on here again, looking forward to 'em! Let me know how you'd like PR to boost them if need be.
  2. Ooooooooo, that would definitely be something to look into. I think I mentioned earlier to her that she could at some point do commissions here, but yeah, that would be pretty awesome!
  3. Those are some pretty nifty ideas, @Jeric, thanks! I'm sure a lot of this will be commission work, namely since we don't exactly have room to store a lot of premade stuff to sell, but that just means she'll be super flexible on the customization end of things. Trickiest part will probably be determining prices based on the order, but Juli's so familiar with the industry and what reasonable rates are for so many items sold in it that I'm not too worried.
  4. Nah you're good man, since it's gonna start as an out-of-home business smaller items will probably make up a lot of what she's making. Juli's great at crafting all kinds of things and has worked in the wedding industry for years, so I'm sure she's familiar with a lot of what you're suggesting.
  5. Nah, you've been great so far! Thanks for the suggestions and please share this thread with anyone you can think of who might want to respond as well!
  6. Definitely some good suggestions here, but keep in mind that this is probably going to start as a SUPER small business working out of our 3-bedroom apartment, and Juli's best work tool at the moment for this job specifically is a $2000 sewing machine. We probably don't have the capital to handle some of those larger items (aside from maybe the banner), but what kind of smaller ones can you think of?
  7. For your consideration.  If as many folks as possible would be kind enough to take a few minutes to look at this and respond, I and my girlfriend would be very grateful!

     

  8. We have questions for you, darlings! Lots and lots of questions. Good afternoon, everypony, how's everyone doing? I apologize I haven't been as active on the forums as I have been in the past, but let me assure you all that I'm still around and love this place as much as ever. If it's not too much trouble, however, I have a quick question for you all that relates to some of my own real life affairs. You see, my girlfriend has recently decided that she'd like to look into starting her own wedding business. It'd start as a "business from home" kinda deal, but Lord willing if it was successful enough expand from there. The idea is that, although she'd eventually like to work up to selling actual outfits for weddings, the business will initially start as a wedding accessory business. Specifically, she'd like to make and sell customized wedding accessories, both locally and online through outlets such as Etsy, DeviantART, Pinterest, etc. This is very new for both of us, and as such, Juli has a lot to learn before she goes any further in getting this all set up. As such, she specifically asked me to survey folks around here with one question in particular: whether you're married, planning on getting married, or not married at all, what kind of wedding accessories (for the entire wedding party mind you, bride, groom, maid of honor, best man, bridesmaids, groomsmen, etc.) would you most want to get customized with personal customization that gives it extra meaning? Hypothetically speaking, which items would you be most willing to pay money for having made customized for weddings (or special events in general, though primarily weddings)? There is no wrong answer here. My girlfriend and I simply want to get an accurate idea in our heads of what customized wedding clothing/accessories are most in-demand among potential customers. The only wrong answer is no answer at all, so please, give us as many answers as you can and feel free to share this with anyone you can think of. We will both be very grateful for it, and will be sure to keep you up to date on what happens with everything going forward. Thanks for your help, everypony, and I hope you all have a splendid day today!

  10. Because her bakery is a lot smaller, probably has more limited stock, and serves a far smaller amount of customers than Sugarcube Corner does. Ponyville may be small, but it's not from what we've seen a, "Has one main street and that's it" kind of small like Starlight's Village where Sugar Belle's still living is. So it makes sense that Sugar Belle would decide that there's plenty she can learn from Mrs. Cake, a baker with decades more experience running a successful business than she has. She clearly won't be apprenticing in the same way that Pinkie Pie did when she moved to Ponyville, this feels like it'll be more like a fellowship, internship, or entry level job that someone takes on when they're already a doctoral student, if you will.
  11. HOLY SHIT, LYRABON'S CANON!!! THAT MEANS BOTH BEST BACKGROUND PONY SHIPS ARE NOW CANON, YAY (and if anyone says Derpy and the Doctor isn't canon after the 100th episode, I WILL FIGHT YOU!!! )!!! OK, seriously though, that episode was amazing and the best episode of Season 8 thus far, bar none. One of the best Discord episodes in some time. The Ponyville bro squad is officially one of the greatest and under-utilized parts of MLP:FiM.
  12. Still waiting for the CMC subplot to completely implode everything like...
  13. *sees Derpy misdeliver Big Mac's package and the CMC get involved in yet another disastrous Hearts and Hooves Day subplot* *keeps watching*

    episode discussion S08:E09 - Non-Compete Clause

    Well... this problem seems convoluted and avoidable. My only issue with some of these "student-centered" episodes so far (granted there haven't been many of them, but I'm going off of what we've seen) is that a lot of the problems have still centered around lessons that the Mane 6 need to learn, not the students themselves. This bugs me for two reasons: (1) while I know the Mane 6 have a lot to learn about being teachers, they've matured enough by this point that it seems like it'd be more gratifying seeing them share their wisdom and experiences with others as opposed to learn lessons that it seems like they've learned before or should have, and (2) having the students not be the center of the lessons being learned makes it easy for them to come off as Mary Sue-ish or Gary Stu-ish. I still like them a lot, but I wish they were learning more than seemingly imparting the lessons themselves that the teachers are learning. Here, I'm not even sure if RD and AJ took this lesson to heart since the episode ended with them bickering just like before. Just doesn't feel like any growth we want to see is happening when the teachers are kind of learning lessons they should know by now, and the students are barely changing at all from episode to episode since they already seem to get along perfectly fine and don't ever seem to butt heads that much as a group. Hoping this changes going forward, but I don't know if it will. P.S. Ya know what's also weirding me out? The phrase "every creature." It just sounds weird, like if someone were saying, "Come on, every person!" I get what they're going for since everypony has been the old staple to this point, but why can't they just say everyone or everybody instead? Every creature just sounds odd.
