hug strangers, is that today my pharmacist uttered the following words to me, as I picked up yet another medication for my son. "This is a co-pay-less medication." Meaning, I took it and ran cause I didn't have to pay a dime to the man.
Well guess what?
what else I'll come up with. They are a blast to whip up. (Get it... whip... cause you have to whip the egg whites...ha ha! ) I watched this video and printed out the notes... it has rocked my cookie world for ever. (Everyone needs their cookie world rocked on occasion.) And the best part- gluten free baby! (And did you know these are not "macaroons?" But rather, "macarons?" One "O." Who knew. Well, the French knew of course.) Knowing how to do this is making me happy.
truck painting that I made for JJ scanned well, prints are listed and turned out so much cuter than I thought. You can purchase it here. Yay!
Also... I've made a really tough decision with Etsy that is making me surprisingly happy if I'm totally honest. I've decided that I'm no longer going to offer anything that I have to sew. After my business major man sat down and discussed my margins. (I'm still not sure what that is, but he is oh-so-hot, and I just nodded and smiled while he talked.) He showed me how sewing wasn't doing me any favors- it is a tremendous amount of work for the prices I've been feeling right about charging. Which is kind of a bummer since some of the items I used to sew and list were/are so stinkin' cute. But my man is right, and I want to use my time wisely, so as of now, I'm discontinuing all of those items from future production. (My last apron, cute dollies, and tote bags.) Once the sewed items I have currently listed are gone, that will be it for me on those so grab em while you can.
happy... to continue offering my customized Family Established signs. I will still create these ones, upon request, but I'm adding this style into the mix with the whole last name splashed across the background. (Sadly, pieces of old barn wood siding (like this one) and reclaimed lumber are getting harder and harder to find so I can't always guarantee that, but I've been using pine a lot and it's also very nice.)
happy. (I'm sorry...get me started on a subject and watch out.) If you want to advertise your blog, your shop, or business, I am offering this, at $10.00 a month. If you are interested, I'll need an image sized at 300 x 100, and you can give me a holler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
What's making you happy today! DO tell!!
