Time Seems to Just Speed Right By

Well, it has been nearly two weeks since my last blog entry, and I am supposed to be blogging once a week! But as you all probably already know, life just gets in the way. We have begun the school year again, homeschooling our almost 14 year old son. We are looking for resources to get help with the schooling, because he is a special needs child, and I feel that my teaching abilities have been surpassed already. Yes, there are some things I can do still, because he is still on an elementary level in many subjects, but with business picking up, I definitely need help!

I have also just joined Butterfly Life; a women's fitness center. My first full week was last week, and in the first week, I actually lost about 2.5 pounds! YAY! My body HURTS though, like it hasn't hurt before. Hopefully I will get used to it soon. I really want to get healthy, so it's definitely worth it!

Speaking of business, I just wanted to say a HUGE THANK YOU to all of my customers, from both Ambrosia Delights, and from my graphic and paper design shop: Rio Oso Designs. I am thrilled to say that I have sold over 90 banners to fellow Etsians. That is SO exciting for me! In fact, just yesterday, I hit my 100 mark for sales in our Rio Oso Design Shop. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU to all my wonderful customers!

Oh, and speaking of customers, have you seen the new web ring I belong to? It's called "Aged Vintage Papier", and it's facilitator is Amy of RazzPizazzBoutique.etsy.com. I actually designed her store banner for RPBoutique, and her blog banners! And I am the very first featured artist on her blog! Check it out here: http://agedvintagepapier.blogspot.com/

Well, it's time to get off the computer. My work day is long since over, and I have gone to do my hour at Butterfly Life, so now it's time to relax and watch a movie with my husband and son.

God bless and have a great day!

Fun & Very Unique Greeting Cards

Do you ever wish that when you go to buy a greeting card, you could buy one that is one of a kind? Something that no one else can find at Hallmark or Target? I mean, how embarassing is it when you show up at a baby shower and 5 people have given the same card as you???

Well, we have the cure for the greeting card boredom.......Etsy.com! You can find some very beautiful and unique greeting cards there, including in my very own store!

Check out some of my favorite greeting card shops!
Have fun looking! I know that you will want to buy! You just can't help yourself! Everyone sends birthday cards at least, right?
God bless you and have a great day!
