What a way to ring in the New Year...

First and foremost HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!! I am so glad the 2008 has come and gone. Hopefully 2009 will be a better year than last. It was not a fun year, let me tell you! But I am going to start this year off on a positive foot. This morning I woke up to several emails. They were for 3 custom orders for purses, and wallets...woo-hoo!! The other was a question in regards to my Woodland Bloom bag I had for sale in my Etsy Store. Well, it sold!! Finally, I sell one of my bags on Etsy. This made my day :0) I have already begun making a few more items to list in my Etsy Store. I am hoping to stock it well....and to take WAY better pictures. I feel like the pictures I have taken do not do my items justice. So I will be working on learning how to take better pics. Hopefully at some point this year I will get a better camera, and a better sewing machine....hear that hubby?!!!

I have also opened an account over at Artfire. I want to give it a shot over there. With their free account option there are no selling fees, and you can sell up to 10 items at a time. It's worth a shot. There is also a to check out Artfire click HERE. It seems to be growing :0)

ArtFire - Buy Handmade - Sell Handmade

Today seems like it is going to be a sewing day. I have already cleaned, and everybody around here seems to be in relaxation mode. Devin and my hubby Jay are playing the Wii, together. It's so cute they are playing Lego Batman. Sophia is plating with ALL of her toys. She is the master of disaster. It amazes me how quickly she can turn the house upside down. But she's so darn cute!!

I hope you all have a wonderful day! We sure will :0)

I've never heard of Artfire - I'm going to check it out. We got a Wii too - I can't figure out those lego games for the life of me. I quit way before my husband or kids do! Here's to a great 2009, Beth

Sounds like your off to a great start this year! I have never heard of artfire. I'm going to have to try that out.

I know all too well about little ones destroying the house in seconds. You should see my living room right now!!!

Congrats on the sales! Wish you more sales to come.

I have an Artfire shop too with basic acct. Now I have 10 items and can't list anymore. Hmmm, don't want to spend the $7 for a starting site so I don't know what to do next except let the 10 items sit there, which I don't think is a good idea.

Btw, tag you're it!
