It’s nearly the end of August, WOW!
My Mother’s store, All That’s Vintage, is going great in Galena. I’m thankful to have another venue to test my products in. Along with my handmade cards, I’ve added recycled jewelry to my line, using typewriter/cash register keys. She created a blog at Allthatsvintage.blogspot.com
We’ve designed the new ad for the store to be in the Galenian Magazine. How does it look?
My writing assignments have taken a change. An announcement will be coming very soon. Very excited to share, but I can’t just yet……….
I’m going to start doing Giveaways on my fan page of Facebook. Just another way I want to test some of my new products out. If you would like to become a fan (like), please refer to the box to the right to guide you there.
I never sit still, so I’m also in the works for opening another storefront for my products. It will be hosted on the Meylah Website.
A few months ago, I responded to a link a friend had posted on Twitter about a new magazine coming out. The first 500 to respond get a free subscription. I LOVE IT!!! It’s called Starlee-Success on Your Terms. It’s a magazine created for women entrepreneurs. It has been most helpful to me. I’ll be doing another blog post for my review of the magazine. It was pretty cool to see my Twitter comment in their third issue.
Who planted a garden this year? Daily I am picking vegetables from my garden and harvesting them. With the days getting shorter it means that fall is coming. Which is good. A nice comfortable time of the year to work outside or online, I prefer online.
My three dogs continue to grow, inspire, and drive me crazy all at the same time. I wouldn’t trade them for anything. Who else can I endlessly share my thoughts and ideas with and they will always agree with me? They are the perfect business partners. I’ve been experimenting with some new homemade treats for them, we’ll see how they go.
The “munchkins”(nieces-nephews) continue to grow by walking, holding their own bottles, and learning how to “talk back”—they too have inspired me with some new projects I’ve been exploring that are more kid-friendly.
And that brings me to my biggest project this summer which is just winding up. My office, or what use to be called the dumping station. Too much stuff. Too many to-do piles. I basically put myself through an “Extreme Makeover”–and it’s working. I can channel my thoughts more clearly now and it’s time to get the jobs done. Planning to write an article on my journey through this makeover for Handmade Spark.
Well, that just about sums up my summer.
Talk to you later on the next post.
