Free Advertising.

Well as everyone knows, you can't get something for nothing, however for no money and a bit of my time, I can generate some free advertising.  
I'm pleased to announce that since joining LinkReferral 12 days ago I've had 341 visits to my site as well as 1 sale!  It shows that all is not lost when you advertise!
I know that this may not seem like much to a lot of you, but I'm so glad that my shop is getting some targeted hits, and I hope that this will translate into sales for the holiday season.
LinkReferral is free and I highly recommend anyone looking for more traffic to their site check them out!  It's free to join.

Another Day

Well today looks gray and dark and there is a mist coming down, which means that the rain is sure to come.  We are stuck inside and that is not the place we want to be when you are on vacation and staying in a hotel room!  This is a picture I took yesterday when the weather was warm and the sun was shining!  I hope that we have a lot more of these sunny days ahead.

We are out and about stopping to smell the roses, err flowers.
The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder which is a sure sign that summer is almost over!
Me and my girls had a great time taking a walk and looking at the last signs of summer. 
Our vacation is winding down and it's time to think about what's, fall, Halloween...

A Budding Artist?

Today we were out enjoying some really warm weather!  The resort that we're staying at had some activities for the kiddies and here is my precious daughter coloring her own paper frame. She had a great time with the paints and I'm very proud to say that there was minimal paint on the chair.
You can also see her completed frame!
Did I forget to mention that she likes to paint.
I've a budding Pinky in the making.

Spotlight Monday - Baby Items

Huge Vinyl Alphabet by Tasty Suite
A little bird and flowers by Emilie Friday
Dress-up Party by Sarajanestudios

I love being apart of the Etsy Network, and there are so many wonderfully talented artisans on Etsy that I have decided to devote every Monday Spotlighting some talent!  These will come from my vast list of favorites, and believe me I have a lot of favorites!

I have baby on the brain right now, well let's face it I've always got baby on the brain,  but I've just recently had another baby girl so it's really front and centre and if you've got kids, and you're like me, then you know that there is so much kids stuff out there, the choices are endless.  This is where Etsy comes in, because I love that I can get something handmade and that is not always mass produced.
With a new baby comes decorating the baby's room and above are some items that I hope will make there way into my new daughter's room. 

Check out these shops for more items

End of Summer?

Well it's not quite the end of summer but the kiddies will be going back to school soon and it feels like this is the last hurrah!

My family and I decided to get away for a while and enjoy the last days August before our daughter has to go to school.  She's only going half days 3 days a week but it feels like I'm shipping her off forever.

This is a picture I captured of her mid twirling, she likes to do that a lot!  I'm looking forward to spending the next 9 days with her, her sister and my wonderful husband.

  • We've been trying to decorate or re-decorate, depends on who you talk to, the house
  • I've been restocking my etsy store, a big thanks to my loyal customers
