Its the Second Monday of my Staycation

I have to admit that this my second monday of my staycation. What is a staycation? Its a vacation that you stay at home and just take care of things at home or play video games etc. We have had a wonderful time. During this first week, I had my birthday. Unoffically, I am still 21 no matter what the calendard says.

We did a few present exchanges with friends and family. Watched television, and read books. Seriously, that is what we did.

Dh helped me get the flash drive by adobe reinstalled but the funny thing is I  still  can't view flash components. Grrr.. go figure.

I was going to post the last remaining pictures of homemade christmas inspired by burdastyle contest but I still can't upload from the home computer.  So, you will have to wait to view the pictures.

Still no sales on anything, many more people know about it. The doctor's office allowed me to put fliers in their faucility before christmas, and I have a friend who is a dentist/orthodist that may let me leave a surprise in their office and fliers as well.

Today is put away the christmas decorations, continue trying to train our families new puppy ( did I forget to mention that), sew said puppy a warm cover (said puppy is so tiny even the xxs sizes are too big), and get togethers with remaining friends we haven't exchanged gifts with.

Don't forget my friends next big run, I am helping to sponsor. Remember the Go purple Ribbon Day, where I made all the shirts, hair stuff, and more? Oh, yeah, another one is on the books for February 2011. Though I need to get more specifics on what I need to do for it. Hopefully, my friend and I will be able to get more pictures up this time.

Oh, I need to sew my friend's new purse for her birthday, and mine too. Not to mention Valentine's coming up!

After months of no sales, one major event that I helped sponsor, being sick, and making lots of christmas gifts for family friends and teachers/teaching staff. Let me tell yeah, I was feeling pretty down and out about making it happen, so, I can stay home longer for my family sakes.

I checked the business email this morning. I had an email blessing in it. No not one of those chain email things people get all the time.

This was an email from another blogger asking permission to promote my business on his blog. Talk about a blessing. Yes, folks there are still kind and generious people out.

Week in Projects

From baby shower gifts, to small hair christmas gifts. I have been busy. I  took the day off yesterday to spend with my friend Robyn and her young children. It was so much fun. The children are at the age that everything and everywhere can be turned into a game or playground. It was fun to enjoy the holiday season from the prespective of young children. Its all a wonderful experience.

Some of the hair items are actually metal clips sold in packages for a dollar. I converted them into something very nice.

shipping costs have changed

I changed my shipping costs at both etsy and artfire this morning. On the suggestion of another seller at one of the locations. Thanks dear!

Shipping is now USPS first class, $2.50 for a single item and $5.00 for combined shipping on multiple items. This is within United States only. I get very nervous doing international sales. I prefer to ship ups or fed ex for those.

I just thought I would let everyone know about the change
