A Good Tuesday


I've made it through day 7 and actually came home for 2 days now headache free! Yeah, maybe I'm over the hump! I am feeling better about what I'm doing on the job too - phew!

It was also a good day cause I had 2 sales on Etsy. I "almost" pulled my pumpkins last night thinking no one will buy them now since Halloween is on Saturday but 2 mini pumpkins sold today! The customer lives in a neighboring state so I assume they will arrive by Friday at the latest.

I just added my "Sweet Nothing" stitched owl to the shop. I hooked him last month and forgot all about him.
I need to start hooking - hopefully I can get myself in a groove to start hooking at least an hour every night. I used to be able to work full time and hook enough to have inventory for shows so I know I can do it again! I have a home tour show I'm participating in coming up the first weekend in December yikes - I need to hook!!!

That little owl is so cute and good for you to be adjusting so nicely to the new job. That's not an easy thing to do. It took me a while when I changed jobs last time.

Happy to hear about you headache free days and the Etsy sales!

Never pull your pumpkins! Just put them on the last page of your shop. I did this with my Christmas ornaments and ended up selling a few all year long.

You never know when the ultimate pumpkin lover will stumble upon your shop!

Hi Beth! I'm glad you are starting to adjust to your new job! I am too, but I'm not working as much as you, so it has been a little easier for me to adjust. Definitely keep your pumpkins...they would even look cute displayed for Thanksgiving! In fact, I think you should make more mini ones because they are so cute!!

Hope you finish the week headache-free!
