Hi all...
Spring is here and with it the lovely scent of manure greets me fresh from my garden...ha ha it really is great (thanks Steve) and I need to get inspired for some new jewelry designs. I have a project coming up the first of May for an auction. I am putting some earrings up for silent auction and I just sold 3 pairs, so my inventory is running a bit low and i would like some inspiration ! I also need to find a couple of display stands ...

My hubby and I just started an ebay store called Hots-n-Tots where we sell swimwear, clothing, and accessories for women and children. We are trying to find ways to supplement our income without me having to take an outside job...but ebay is slow business right now, at least for us. It seems that with the economy the way it is, people aren't in to spending money on designer handbags or high end swimsuits! :)

Well, that's all for now- go smell the manure, everybody!

I am so excited ! I made 5 sales today! That is a record! Praise God! I am happy and enjoying this "work" He has given me to do...I am really trying to follow His leading and pray about every step I take....I am very thankful right now.

People really talk, I mean, it's true that the best advertising is word of mouth. For a long time I didn't really tell many people about it, or if I did, I just skimmed over b/c I am like that, the person who sits at the back of class so I don't draw any attention to myself, although I think I am starting to emerge...but once I started REALLY telling people to check out my website, my jewelry, that's when I started to get some business..duh. I am not a natural business woman or a salesman either.

Well, I gotta go be good to my man...and by that I mean give Jesse his bedtime bottle.
By the way, I need a good new book to read....
