I took the Handmade Pledge

I Took The Handmade Pledge! BuyHandmade.org

I'm number 1692!!!!!! What number are you???

Happy buying Handmade at Happy House Quilts!!!

What life is all about...family, Christ and creativity!!!

This was fun to do too! Another flickr tool to make this mosaic.

Love my girls! Need to slow down and smell the flowers as they are growing so fast! Hard to believe this was almost a year ago. The baby is into everything now...all my crafts are in boxes and stacked high and barricaded into random sections of the house with gates and pieces of furniture to keep her away from it all...I look forward to the fairs to move all the inventory out of my small spaces. But I guess a part of me will miss being able to create so much all the time.

This holiday season should be nice...the lull after the storm.

My Goals for my shop

Well...I'm inching fast towards 100 sales by December 31...as I hit 53 today!
275 hearts...but hearts are not really a goal of mine...it's all about sales! And transferring money from paypal back to my checking account to recoup some of the investment in craft supplies!

Craftzine.com highlighting my Friendly Flowers is a bonus but more global exposure was also on the list!

2 Craft fairs selling 800 items...could i actually sell out????

Blogging daily? Well with 3 kids and a dog and other children that I watch during the day...it's doing pretty good.

Listing several times a day!!! This is key to sales at etsy...i just know it!

make 40 items a week for next few weeks prior to fairs.

Expand Dog line.

Investigate and gain wholesale customers.
