Okay this morning I made carrot cake cupcakes with cream cheese frosting for tomorrow and today. I sent a dozen to my husband's work. We have a dozen here but are only keeping a half dozen and sending the other half to the schools.
Last night, I got a wonderful convo from an etsy associate. The etsy location has been featured on the clickable below. Come check my shop and the other four choosen for this week!

Wow what a dramatic increase!
My plan for the new year. Open up one more shop front at a different location, increase sales to 40 sales via internet shop fronts combined between three different shop fronts.
Why three different location. I have spent over $100.00 in listing fees on Etsy plus they take a percentage of my sale and only made $45.00. The other two sites don't charge to list but do take a percentage of my sale. They do limit the amount of my lisitings between 25-50 listings depending on the site. More money in my pocket over all in the end. Plus, the more fronts, I have the more visibility I have in the market and the more potiental to make money for my family.
Not to mention my time and supplies are not covered overall with only $45.00 profit.
So, for my next birthday wish list is...
business cards (nice ones)
a banner that unites all three shop fronts
fliers done and approved for the local school district
