I Hired a Model

Need I say more?!

Sunday, July 25, 2010


Okay, I've been gone and you're wondering where? Sadly, my sweet father-in-law passed away but at the very ripe,wonderful age of 95. His death was in New on the road again. My husband really took it well and we had 2 wonderful experiences while there. First, DH had reconnected online with a boyhood friend awhile ago but they hadn't seen each other for over 40 years. Dennis literally took buses and trains in 95degree heat and came to visit while we were there. A sweetie.
The second true sweetie award goes to my son who flew up from South Carolina out of respect for DH and I. A total surprise and heart stopping shock when he walked in. He had never met my father-in-law due to distance circumstances but came anyway. What a boy/man! I have done something right!
I am surrounded by sweeties....a good life!
Speaking of sweet, how fabulous is this heart from Denim and Pearls? Vicki has a great sale going on until July 31st.

The evil of self promotion....

When people start selling online, it is a common thought to think "Post and they will come"...uh,no!
Promoting can sap your strength, use up your energy and to say nothing about how it takes great chunks of time. BUT is is necessary, so get used to it!
Some things work while others fall flat but to try is the goal because as my (infamous) DH says "Ya' never know".
A suggestion was made on the Zibbet forums to start a Christmas in July sale similar to Etsy's which hadn't been a proven winner for me in the past. But, ya' never know! Count me in!

So until July 17th, everything is marked down 20% and after that by weeks, it will go down first to 15% and then 10%. Now I think my pricing is extremely fair and 20% off is a steal and actually it hurts. Some would raise their prices to reduce the pain. I didn't and I won't. I do want to clean out some older work and begin listing my stockpile of new things.

So come on in and get a great deal, get to know my shop and come back again and again and again!
How's this for shameless self promotion?....going to hide under a rock......
Oh, and besides promoting myself, here's a great offer from Zibbet:
