Birthday Surprises

Hey everyone! I hope you all are having a great saturday! I am resting up- we have had a busy couple of days! Yesterday was my birthday! Yea- my hubby surprised me with a concert and night away in Ann Arbor thursday- thankfully the weather was cooperable. It would not be fun to drive three hours in snow! It was alot of fun but we had to get home and get Connor at the in-laws, go pick up the dog, drop Connor at a birthday party (for one of his friends) and go have my birthday dinner. Whew, it was a blur yesterday! So now I am 27- I have alot of goals for me this year! My Etsy shop is starting to pick up a little bit! I had 4 sales yesterday (I guess it was Etsy's birthday present to me!) I had two custom orders so I better start working on them! Have a great weekend all!

Happy Tuesday!!!

It is snowing! Again! This purple color reminds me of the tulips that come up on the side of our house every spring- so I chose it to cheer me up from my winter blues. I got an e-mail from Skully- an artist on Etsy and she said that she would like to make me the featured artist on her blog one of the upcoming weeks! So she sent me a list of questions for the interview part and 5 of my items will be featured on her blog! How exciting! I hope it generates some sales! I will post the link to her blog once I find out when I will be on it and if you want you can check it out! I am trying to figure out ways to get taffic to my blog- and how to be able to someday have featured artists and links to other sites and so forth! I am working on that so hopefully soon my blog will be spectacular! Well I have much needed laundry to attend to that I have been neglecting! I will write soon!

Winter Blues

Ok, winter is starting to wear on me! My little boy has school cancelled again because of this crazy weather and then a half of a day thursday and friday for something, who knows! My birthday is friday! Wahoo! A big 2-7! My husband says he has a surprise for me- so we shall see what it is! I will tell you all about it when it happens! I hope it happens! With this winter, you never know what you're going to get for snow! I just feel like I am under house arrest! It just has been so snowy and so cold and so windy for so long, I don't feel like leaving the house unless it is a must! I am sick of it! I need a warm spring day! Oh! i sold two items on my etsy shop of saturday night! Yea! I was excited! It had been awhile since I sold something so it was a nice confidence boost that I needed! Well I need to venture out in this crappy weather to get some groceries and send out my order! Have a great day and try to stay warm- unless you are already! ( if you are, i am so jealous!) :)

Saturday, January 17, 2009 is s-l-o-w!

So it is slow eh...yea it is! That's Etsy I am talking about. My etsy shop is super slow right now and it is soooo frustrating! I mean, I love doing the etsy shop and all, but I wonder why my items are not selling while others, with similiar items as mine, are selling. What is the matter with my stuff!!? Ok, I needed to vent that out! I feel a bit better now! Not to mention it is still freezing bitter cold here and there isn't much you can (or want) to do whenit is 20 below! I don't even want to go get groceries or get the mail! I want spring! I feel like that will cheer me up...spring. Ahh...a breath of fresh air thought. All right. I am off to create- to create something that is going to sell! ( I can only hope!) Tata!

Winter Freezing Wonderland

Holy Cow! It is freezing out. Our winter has been so harsh it is insane. Our heat bill is over 300 bucks a month and it doesn't seem to be getting any better! Today it is negative 15! Our little boy got out of school at noon today b/c of the mini blizzard we are having outside and is freaking out b/c his DS game is not going as planned! Oh the joys! My sewing machine went posessed on me yesterday and had to go buy a new one today so I can sew some more stuff for my Etsy shop (dedeetsyshop). I felt like I lost my left hand without it, I have been on there so much. Ohh...and I got stuck in our driveway this morning..luckily two nice men came and shoveled and pushed me little boy was late for school, needless to say! My husband had already left for work and if it wan't for them, the car would still be there! So to return the favor, I went and shoveled the old lady across the street driveway. Her husband is in the hospital and she can't get around too good. My good deed for the day! Anyways, I should go check on Connor...I hear some grunting about his game and fear he may break something..j/k....I hope not! Have a great day!

Hey! I need serious help. I feel like an addict. I cannot shut the computer off if I needed to! I mean, it is the first thing I think about when I wake up, during breakfast, when I clean, when I work, when I eat get the picture. And I am sure there are lots of you Etsians out there that know what I am talking about! I have only been on Etsy for a month and I spend more time on there than I do anything else right now!!! I even dream about Etsy and the million ideas I have running through my head about the things I can make for it! Is anyone else out there in the same boat? If you are, let me know! I would love to talk!! Well, off to Etsy...ok, I mean the grocery store. Seriously, I need help!
