Zibbet not Ribbit!

Ok, so I am not very good at remembering to blog! It seems with keeping both of my shops running, keeping my family running and then remembering to keep myself running I tend to run out of time :)

I am announcing something new today though :) I have started a new shop on Haven't heard of zibbet yet? Well, let me just tell you about it. Zibbet is another world for handmade items. Very similar to etsy, just not as pricey to the sellers. It is still new, but well worth setting up a shop on I believe. I have watched it growing in the recent weeks, so last night I decided to finally set up my shop. I am going to be working on adding more of my items from my etsy shop over to my zibbet shop in the coming days. I have well over 200 items to add, so it may take me a while. You can find my shop here

Please take the time to check zibbet out. If it is something you think you would enjoy and would like to open up a shop, please use my referral link here

I hope everyone has a very blessed day today! Tuesday is one more day closer to Friday :)

Sure has been a long time

Well, I definitely apologize for not posting more. Seems that each day life gets a little more hectic and I find no time to slow down. I am going to TRY to be better. Note I say try, as I am definitely a work in progress :)

A few updates on my little corner of the world:

1: My etsy shop is growing steadily. I continue to offer great craft supplies at near wholesale prices for small quantities. You can find my supply shop here .

2: I have started a facebook fan page for both of my shops. I generally let all of my fans know of the new items I will be listing before I list and I also ask for feedback from them on what new items they would like to see. If you would like to join my facebook fan page click here .

3: I am carrying some beautiful new flowers, headbands and crochet hats :) I hope to start offering them for sale on my facebook page, my own website and my blog soon.

Now, as the personal life goes :

Both of my daughters are playing softball this year. Emerald is playing rec league and travel ball. Lauren is playing mini mites rec league. They both are so very excited! Trey is 20 months old now and quite the handful. He is VERY active and constantly getting into things, I guess that is expected with a boy, or at least that's what I'm told from those with experience LOL.

Supply Shop on Etsy

When I first started selling on etsy, I didn't expect to start a supply shop. I was only selling my handmade creations. As I have gotten more into the etsy scene and looked for more suppliers for my items I realized quickly that I could create my own niche. I started the store in March of 2009 but just let it sit empty for several months before I was finally prepared to do something with it. About 2 weeks ago I started listing more items in my store. I now have 24 sales in that store already. I am shocked and pleased at the same time! I am able to offer small quantity items at close to wholesale prices. Come on in and browse around. If I don't have what you need, convo me and I will try to get it for you! I offer great customer service and quick shipping. If you are not the DIY type, then check out my other shop here. You can find ready made items for sale and I love taking custom orders!

My little Graduates!

Wow! I can't even believe that I am saying that I have graduates! Yes, my 5 year old just graduated pre-school and my 11 year old has just graduated 5th grade! I still cannot get over how fast they have grown. I can remember holding them and rocking them as babies and now they are growing up so fast. I am having a very hard time believing that I will be the mother of a middle schooler next year. I remember crying when she got on the bus for her first day of kindergarten. She is so excited though! My 5yr old is very excited to be starting kindergarten also. She is doing a countdown for the beginning of school. I just want to enjoy summer vacation though! I will be sharing a pic of my 11yr old graduate as soon as I can find it in the 1000's of pics I have LOL.

Monday again

So I really spent a lot of time thinking about what this picture said before I decided to write today. I think so many of us just hate Mondays simply because that means another weekend is gone and the work week has started all over again. I can remind myself that I only have 1 more Monday to endure for this school year :). This definitely makes me happy. But then again, I want to make sure that I make my days count instead of just counting the days.

Today I want to challenge all of my readers to perform a random act of kindness. Maybe it is something as simple as smiling at a co-worker, or pushing the grocery cart back to the cart holder for someone else, something that could make someone else happy. Make today count! Show just how wonderful the human spirit really is!
