Etsy, A Love - Hate Relationship!

After Etsy's decision to allow third party manufacturing, and then an announcement of "going public" it seems to have created uproar among many sellers. For months now I have been hearing so much negatively like "I leaving Etsy," Etsy sold out," Etsy is going downhill," "Etsy did this ...and that." And on and on...
I watched the internet bash the site that I built my business on! My sale numbers speak for itself and my results show the truth of a thriving Etsy! My answer for those doing the bashing, ask some top sellers "how's business!"
My first year on Etsy I made $215 dollars! It didn't happen over night. It involves a lot of dedication and hard work.
I sold on Etsy for many years before I quit my day job. I am not bragging (well..maybe a little!) but my opinion for any new seller or someone wanting to start their on business, your success will be hard work, dedication, great customer service and a few tears in between it all. Success must be goal driven and a determined mind that you will succeed!
So, the end results for me through this love- hate relationship, I am very thankful and love Etsy. They gave  me the opportunity to reach thousands of people. I don't blame them for my downfalls, just as I don't praise them completely for my success. The praise or blame is solely mine. I am very proud to be a Etsy seller, and I am happy to see it continuing to flourish because I know, in some little way, I contributed to that success.

Two days of Hell!

Have you ever had days that all you can say is REALLY? That has been the last two days for me. I am having some neck and back pain and doctor suggested an injection in my neck. 
Had this procedure done yesterday and I was up all night sneezing and coughing! What the heck is this!
My first thought, I was getting a cold or something. Being in the hospital, I had to be exposed to thousand of germs, right? Well...nope! After a long night with no sleep from the sneezing and coughing all night, I wake up and go to brush my teeth and look into the mirror and my checks look like I did overkill on the rouge! My neck down to my boobs is the same! Seriously! Anyway to make a long story short (don't bet on it!) I have had some kind of reaction to the injection. Thank goodness for Benadryl! All is good now and I feel much better getting that off my chest...ha ha and cheeks!

Bulk Tags

Hi everyone!

I know it's been awhile since I have posted anything! The last couple of months has been tough and even my presence on social media has been lacking. The truth is that I was having some health issues and when I feel bad I have a hard time finding anything worth sharing. So anyway,  the last couple of months have been pretty intense so ...blah blah blah!
