HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome to 2015!

Happy New Year!  I'm so grateful to all of you for making 2014 such a great year!  Whether you purchased products, cheered me on, shared my Facebook posts or just simply visited my shop.  You were apart of making it a great year!  I can't wait to see what 2015 brings!

I don't normally make resolutions although 2 years ago my husband and I both quit smoking (that was rough but SO worth it)!  This year I decided to make a list of goals both personal and professional and I wanted to share some of them with you!

I actually only have TWO personal goals (cause I'm really kind of perfect so there's not much need for improvement - totally joking)

  1. Lose the 30+ pounds I gained when I quit smoking by eating better and exercising daily. Seems simple right - not so much!  But I'm doing the best I can!  
  2. Be more patient.  I tend to have control issues that cause me to lose my cool more often than I'd like so I'm learning to check myself by counting to five and asking if it's really a big deal.  My husband and kids make fun of me for saying I.N.B.D. (It's No Big Deal) but so far it works for me! 
Now I have about 15 professional goals of which I'm only going to share a few.  I won't be ready to share the rest until later this year when they become more of a reality (fingers crossed).
  1. Making products in advance so they are ready to ship when you order therefore cutting down on the processing times of all orders.  
  2. Blog more often!  With social media outlets changing and limiting so much of what you see, this seems like the best way to keep in touch.  I'm going to start a weekly "have you met" type of post that features a different product every week.  
  3. Add more products and sizes!  I've got a running list of things to make and add some of which I will be doing VERY soon!  
  4. I'm going to reopen a website as well.  I do love Etsy but there's only so much you can do.  Especially with sale and coupons!  No date has been set yet but it'll be soon I hope!
  5. Be more organized!  Isn't that every shop owners goal! :) 
  6. Update all product photos
I hope that you are as excited about this year as I am!  I feel truly blessed to be able to do what I love everyday!  Thank you for allowing me that opportunity!  

If you have any goals you'd like to share (or tips on how I can achieve some of my goals) leave a comment below!

As always, I hope you have a bubbly day!

Free Shipping and a Holiday Break!

Free US Shipping on orders over $20.00 through December 21st with coupon code FREESHIP20
International buyers, I didn't forget you!  Use coupon code INTER5 for $5.00 off your order! 

Coupon code must be used at time of checkout for discount to be applied.  Cannot be combined with any other offers, promos, coupons or discounts.  Cannot be used on custom orders, wholesale products or special requests.  All inventory is limited and will not be restocked until the new year (see below) and no holding or reserving will be done.  Contact me with any questions!



From now through January 7th, we will be on a semi-vacation type schedule!  With the holidays coming and the kids being out of school for what seems like FOREVER this year, We've decided that this year, we would fill the shop with all the remaining inventory and ship out orders as they came in but would NOT be filling or taking and custom orders until the new year. That means that if products sell out, we will not be restocking them until January 8th. There's a possibility we might do some production here and there but we are making no promises until after the new year! :)  We will however, be shipping orders out everyday!  AND the shop will remain open through-out our "vacation".  The only days we will physically close down the shop are December 31st and January 1st for end of year inventory!

This year has been an amazing one for us both personally and professionally and we look forward to whatever 2015 brings!  We wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
