End of October

So, sales were sucky this month.  Hopefully they will pick up next month.  I'm really hoping.

Tuesday my son had ab MRI done.  They were thinking he was possibly autistic, and wanted to see if there was anything on his brain.  He is very slowly devloped, I know know why.  He's 2 and a half and is just NOW into the babbling stage.  In the past 3 monthes he finally was able to climb up and down stairs, yeah.  Well I got the results back today.  The Neurologist said the scan was mostly normal, except for a pea sized dot on it.  He's not quite sure what it is, and says it doesnt explain Blakes delay.  But he also said that the dot wasn't anything to be concerned about just yet.  So now I'm confused, if theres nothing wrong really wrong with my child, then whats wrong with him?  So now he needs bloodwork done, to see if theres anthing that can be explained there.

Anyway, anyone doing anything special for Halloween?  We are going trick or treating.  I'm going to be a mummy, and blake is going to be a dragon.  It will be fun.

End of October

I found a whole bunch of unfinished bracelets I've been working on for a month or so, they only needed to add beads tothe end to finish.  So I Had to buy beads, even though I didnt want to buy anything else for the rest of the month.  Now, I have 16 bracelets that I need to photograpy and list on etsy!

I can't believe we are almost done with October.  This month was the fastest yet.  So crazy!  Are you dressing up for Halloween?  I am!  As what, I don't know, but I AM!  I always do.  I'm a big kid at heart.  Halloween is my favorite day.  At first, I was going to be Sally from Nightmare Before Christmas and make Blake Jack...but I couldnt find any Jack Costumes in Blakes size, so next year, maybe?  Hopefully!  So he will probably be a dragon.  I need to get on the whole shopping for a costume thing.  I looked at Walmart yesterday, and they didn't have anything good.  So I need to find him a dragon costume.  And me, I will probably be a fairy or pixie again, although I should probably find something diffrent since I've been a fairy since I was like 18.

What are you guys doing for Halloween?

Whats new?

Hey guys, whats new?  I havent been making too much over here latley, mostly becasue the lack of sales.  Maybe if I make something new, sales might go up, but I havent been feeling up to it.  Not sure why.

But I am not giving up, just taking a break on making things for a while.  I think I'm going to spend the rest of the month promoting what I do have already.  Sunds good to me, right?

Oh, and I didn't get a chance to go to the post office on Friday, so I sent the give away packages out today.  So be expecting them in the mail :)

Since I have nothing new to share, I thought I would post what I have been hearting latley:

Well, I finished making the prizes for the give away winners, and I will most likely be mailing them off today.  Plus I had 1 order.  I'm feeling discouraged.  I've had a whole 3 orders this month.  And I've been selling on ebay and artfire.  Why!?  Is anyone else having a slow month?

I will be happy to sell $50 worth of stuff this month.  Hopefully next month is a better month.

Give away update

Hey guys!  I havent been on much the past few weeks.  But I will be on here more often.  The past few weeks have just been crazy in my life, but things are getting better so here I am.

Well, my give away was kind of a fail.  I only got 3 entrys.  So guess what?  All 3 people win a bracelet!  I will contact you guys eaither tonight or in the morning.

And for whatever reason, my sales have been crap this month.  I'm not sure why.  But I've only made about 3 dollars.  This scares me.  I hope it picks up more, I would really love to make some money this month.  My goal was $150, but I would of been happy with $100.  Now I'm just hoping to get $50!!  Seems like I need to rethink some things...

I really need to buy a calander.  And make a list.  And stick to that list.  Of like things to do in a day.  Becasue I'm a stay at home mom for the most part (only work weekends) so you would think I have time to do stuff.  And actaully, I do.  I have just been lazy.

So here I am, I WILL turn my life around about right, NOW.  And stop being lazy.  Becasue its really not getting me anywhere.

How are things for everyone else?

How is it already October?  I mean, seriously.  Over here, September was kind of cold.  Until the last week, when its been really nice.  I hope October is kind of warm this year.  I def can't wait til Halloween.

I made a total of $99.99 last month out of my $160 goal.  Gah.  Atleast I made that much, though.  I already spent $20 this month, on 100 Bubble wrap mailers.  That is the ONLY money I plan on spending on my shops except for the listing fee.  I have been selling a bit on ebay too, and they have free auction listing fee's until January so hopefully I will be able to list everything and sell a lot on there.

So, one more week until my give away is over.  I only have 3 participants at the moment.  I'm hoping to get to atleast 10.  So I will be working extremly hard to promote that until about Thursday.

Hope everyones been having a good week!
