If you’re crafty, or wish you were – you need to know about Etsy. Etsy is a buy/sell environment for handcrafters. It seems to attract the best of the best. I love crafting, but don’t have the time. Just browsing Etsy gives me the inspiration I need to make the time! Shopping directly from the artist is a warm-fuzzy thing to do. I love to give gifts from sites like this because the gift usually comes with a story about the artist.
If you’re talented – you should be selling on Etsy! It is FREE to get started, they give you a URL to promote (usernameand .etsy.com). That is a truly simple way to get started.
Look at all the FAB finds I came across today!
So like any ‘normal’ mother, a New Year is upon us and it’s time to start thinking about those resolutions. I’d say my list is not unlike most. This year I will:
- get fit
- start eating right (and feeding the kids healthier)
- get organized (luckily Mabels has already helped with that!)
- stop drinking in the afternoon (just seeing if you’re paying attention)
- be more patient with the kids/my husband/my business partners (just seeing if Mumby is paying attention..hee,hee)
I’d guess these are pretty typical on the mommy circuit. Seems the list doesn’t change that much year to year. Strangely, the year plods along and I seem to be satisfied that if by December 31st I look at my kids and the head count is still the same.
A fresh new year is upon us! The 4 inches of fresh white fluffy snow in my yard is quite appropriate, I think. A fresh, clean, white start.
I can’t help but think of all the fun things in store for Mabel this year, in addition to my actual life. Mabel has big things planned that I’m sure you will all love. 2008 will bring a lot of new adventures to our lives and we hope our loyal fans and customers will follow us along for the ride
