When Life Hands You Lemons

Its funny how things work out. Last week I was resolved to take a side step when it came to my etsy shop. I was tired of the renewing game and the amounting etsy fees and the lack of sales and so I was determined to just let things be for awhile in my shop and focus on the holidays with my family. And to my surprise, when I logged into etsy today I had over $100 in sales. All of which will be applied to Christmas I'm sure! What a blessing.

So now, as indecisive as I am, I feel the need to make some new things again and restock my shop with a few new journals. But again, I'm not planning any major shop overhauls until after the holidays. I'm still undecided about the direction that I want to go in, but I do have a renewed faith in the things that I make and why it is that I love making them in the first place!

In other news, today is Gage's birthday! My baby boy is 2, no longer a baby. We've already celebrated the boys' birthdays with a party, so tonight we're celebrating with Gages favorite baby duckling, and watching Wonder Pets Christmas Carol on tv tonight while I begin the week long process that is making Christmas cookies.

Happy Monday everyone!

Aw, happy birthday Gage! Annelie will be 2 next month. Hard to think of the littlest as not being babies anymore, isn't it?

Yay for you and your shop sales! Its funny, because sometimes I wont have any sales so I renew and renew... and nothing still. And sometimes, I just let my shop sit and then BAM I wake up to loads of sales. I wish things were more consistent!!
