Love-Hate Relationship

I'm have a love hate relationship with my PC.
I'm pretty sure that I have a virus even though I have the antispyware and firewall, and other add-ons.
My computer is slow, not clicking properly and my Outlook Express takes a vacation whenever it feels the need. I think, no I know!, that I am ready to make the switch to a MAC.
I've read the reviews, asked others opinions and been in the store asking a million and one questions.
My only issue now is convincing my PC loving husband that the switch on our home computer is the right thing to do.
The only saving grace is that he does not use the home computer and he's recently purchased a laptop, so he could work on that from home.
Christmas is coming, I only hope that it will come early for me!

Well I've had my eye on this beauty for a while now, but I could not justify buying it as I'm already married and really could not think of a use for it. Now with my mothers party coming up, I think that this would be the perfect item for everyone to put their cards in!

Afterwards I think that I will bundle up all of my holiday cards and keep them in there as well.

I'm so excited that I finally got my change to own this beautiful item!

This is located at mrstildos shop!

Shhh...It's a Surprise

Well my mom's birthday is coming up on the 17th and my sister and I have deided to throw her a surprise birthday party. It is very short notice, but I know that we can pull it off. We already have a lot of the big details out of the way, so now it's time to work on the little things, and this is what I love!

The theme we've decided on is black, white and gold.
This is what the invite looks like, simple yet elegant.
More updates to come.

Well I've decided to set a goal for my etsy shop.
I would like to have 200 sales by the end of the year.
I don't think that this is unrealistic, I just feel that I'm going to have to get off my butt and do some serious promoting and creating!
I think this is a great goal as I hopefully will not slack off. Especially now that it's in print, I really don't want to be a failure.
I know that this is going to be tough, but I'm positive that I can do it.

So visit my shop and help support my goal!

Holiday Mailing

I know that it's crazy to already be thinking about the holidays and it's upcoming demise, but it must be done, especially when your customers are counting on receiving their holiday items before December 25th!

Here are some of the deadlines that Canada Post has set forth in order to receive items before the 25th.

Australia Dec. 3
Caribbean Dec. 3
Central/South America Nov. 26
Europe Dec. 3
New Zealand Dec. 3
U.S.A. Dec. 10

Mail within Canada usually takes 4 days, but during the holiday season, however, I wouldn't count on that, the mail tends to be quite slow as you know during the rush of the holidays.

You can find full details here:

Featured Artist

I was featured on the etsygreeting blog back in October.

Have a look, let me know what you think. I really like the simplicity of this card, however my photography skills could use a bit of work! Just one more item to add to my LONG list of things to do.

Holiday Pledge!

I took the Handmade pledge and so should you!

I vow that at least 50% of my holiday gifts will be handmade.

That should not be too hard to do with a wonderful site like etsy!

I think that my friends and family will appreciate the gifts more.

Happy Shopping!

I really can't belive that it's been this long since I've blogged!

I do have a really good excuse for not being around, well probably about 50 great excuses, but the one that really matters is that I've taken on some really big wholesale orders and this has kept me REALLY busy, along with everyday life.
I do pledge to blog everyday and keep it fresh and exciting.
I know this may be difficult with the upcoming holidays looming around the corner, but I will try my best!
There's some fabulous new products in my shop, and I will try to do some shop updates to keep everyone in the know!
I also plan to get my newsletter out to everyone that requested to be on my mailing list!
I would like to run a really special promotion for that, but now I think that I'm getting ahead of myself.
I'm looking forward to re-entering the blog world!
Happy Shopping!
