It’s the Little Things

I finally have been working in my studio more. Now that the baby is 7 months old and is big enough to babywear on my back it makes working up there so much easier. Happy Baby makes for a more productive Mama that is for sure. I have dedicated at least 1 day a week to taking pictures and writing the listings out in my notebook that I bring home and write out in my Etsy listings.

I know it seems counterproductive to write my listing out in a notebook first then on the computer but I find it easier that way if I lose the information on the computer I still have a hard copy to fall back on.

Today was not picture day as I like to call it but a day where I cleaned and straightened and hung more hats and clothing I finished cleaning up. I really need a way to buy Command 3M hooks in bulk but I haven’t found a great way to do so just yet. Yes I’ve checked Amazon and eBay without any luck so the search continues.

Now that the playroom is finished I had both boys up there while the oldest was getting a sewing lesson down the street, they literally played in their room the whole 2 hours we were there. I’m sure that won’t last forever but at this time I really don’t care.

Now that we are almost a whole month into the new year, I have decided on a plan for my shop. I will be listing all the of the jewelry I have and once it is all sold I will not be adding any more jewelry to the shop. I’m also thinking about phasing out any home wares as well actually I’m thinking I am going to do it. I want to focus on vintage clothing and accessories only.

Category of the Month: House Wares

Last year I did a color of the month and posted about that color at the beginning of each month and changed the 4 featured items in my Etsy shop. Well this year I am changing it up a bit to a category a month, now in some of my Etsy shop categories I have several different items and I will be featuring them at well.

This month is House Wares.

Each of these items and so much more can be found in my Etsy shop here.

Until Next Time,

Happy New Year

2016 is upon us and instead of resolutions I have goals. I feel that goals are more attainable than resolutions are and I can reach them.

So my goals for 2016 are as follows.

  1. List 500 new items in my shop for a total of 1000 listings.
  2. Simplify every thing, only keep what we need not what we want.
  3. Learn how to read music
  4. Promote my books more.
  5. Spend less time on electronic devises.
  6. Learn a new skill….I haven’t decided what that skill is yet though but when I do I will update you all.

So there you have it 6 pretty attainable goals for 2016.

What are your goals or resolutions for this year?
