Still working on blogging

Ok so none of the Treasury pics are showing up below. I will work on that and get a better link to them as soon as I figure it out. The Treasury page of Etsy has not been working properly on my computer. Let me know if anyone else has experienced any problems. In the meantime, I have made lots of friends on Etsy so far. One of my favorite customers is Carrie, from Lunastar.etsy.com and she has purchased several pairs of my ear and hair bouquets. I have enjoyed our conversations, too bad she lives 1000 miles away or I think we'd be best buds! Check out her shop, Where Handmade, Homespun REAL, Farm Fresh PYGMY GOATS MILK equals A Wholesome BATH & BODY SHOPPE!

Also, Priscilla from http://bijouxdellostregatto.etsy.com is featuring my Etsy shop on her blog,
http://lecreazionidellostregatto.blogspot.com this month. Thanks Priscilla for chosing me!

I have featured one of the Etsymoms in our monthly newsletter with an awesome interview which I thoroughly enjoyed! Jen from http://bfbeads.etsy.com has a great product for nursing moms, just a little late for me, but hopefully, not for you or someone you know who is a new mom or even a new again mom. Check out her stuff and her blog has the full interview,http://mamasmagic.blogspot.com/2008/06/etsymom-interview-directors-cut.html She has lots of tips and ideas for juggling Wife, Mom and entrepenuer. Thanks again, Jen for the informative and uplifting interview!

One more thing...http://SustainabiliTee.etsy.com has featured a few of my earrings in her June issue of www.yourdailybreeze.com Thanks Emily for the feature and including my ear bouquets in your photo shoot!

Ok, I'm working on updating my blog and trying to squeeze everything into my busy life. Kids getting ready to get out of school, working part-time, etc...Life is certainly a balancing act. There is so much I WANT to do, but only get to do 1/4 of it, if that. At least I have high hopes! ha Anyway, I will try to work on my blog and get it current this week, even if it means staying up late again.
