Hope

The following quote was in the April 2009 issue of Canadian Living

I liked it and thought I would share it:

"There is no medicine like hope, no incentive so great, and no tonic so powerful as expectation of something better tomorrow."
Orison Marden

Here's to hope :)

Shop Update

Well, I spent some time the last few mornings and my daughter's nap time today working on updating my shop pictures, descriptions and banner.

It took awhile for me to figure out the program - but I think I got the hang of it. I had a lot of pictures to do - but I am pretty happy with the result. My shop now looks much lighter and brighter and ready for Spring. The pictures also give a better representation of the actual product - which is great!

Now if only Mother Nature would comply and hold off on the snow - until it gets closer to Halloween :)

I am thinking of doing some profiles on some of my favorite Etsy shops.

Stay tuned to see more.

Sunshine and Rainbows

The sun is out and my daughter danced around the house today singing "Sunshine & Rainbows Mommy!". It was pretty cute and I think that it made my day.

We looked and looked but could not find a rainbow - lots of sunshine though. We are all dreaming of Spring :)

Just listed a new hat in my shop this morning. I love the fabric - it is so bright and reminds me of a starry sky at night! http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=23772821

I have also been checking out Etsy Teams today and became a member of the Custom Boutique Design & Creations Team and applied to be a member of some others.

New Blog

It's a good day to spend inside.

Snowing, blowing and cold outside - inside we are peeking out the windows at the snow and hoping that Spring returns soon. We already miss the sunshine that we were enjoying last week.

This is the first post on my newly minted blog.

Follow me as I have fun creating new things with my sewing machine and as I learn how to do some new things with this blog.
