RIP Peppy

So my sweet little Peppy died Sunday night.  I miss him so much!  But he was a feeder mouse and wasnt even suposed to live past the pet store.  I'm not going to lie, he was a mouse but the past few days have been hard on me.  Domino, the girl mouse I had in there with him, burried him, along with his toys and hid on the other side of the cage.  Thats what gave me the clue he was dead.  So I got her out, got all the other bedding out of the cage, and saw his tail.  Touched it, nothing.  So I didnt really uncover him, I couldnt bear it.  Also, I made enough movement that if he was alive, he would of moved.  So I dumped him into a box coffin I made him, and I'm going to burry him next to Belle in my back yard.

So, I'll miss you my little Pep.  You were the sweetest little mouse ever.  I'm gonig to miss holding you and petting you, and when I pet your stomach it looked like you were laughing.  I'll be keeping that memory with me. 

Other than Peppy leaving this world, I have been making lots of bracelets.  I just need to get some beads to end them off with, then I'll be listing a bunch of new patchwork bracelets.

Have a good day everyone.

New Bracelet

So out of boredom, and searcing the internet, I was trying to find how to make a real, true friendship bracelet.  Unfortunally, I didnt like making it, mostly I didnt like how it looked so I just decided to wrap embrpidery floss around some hemp, no knots, and made myself a pretty new bracelet!

Soon to be sold in Peppy and Belle's etsy shop!

By the way, my internet explorer keeps telling me blogspot.com is an invalid URL.  Anyone else having this problem?

Hope everyone is well.

Eleven Monthes

Next month, it will be a year since I opened my Etsy shop.  What a year its been!  I looked back on some of my first items, and some of the same things I still sell, but the pictures, my descriptions, and tags have improved so much!  I have been making a few new items, but I think I will focus this month on editing my shop.  Fixing ALL of my pictures so theyre all PERFECT, spell checing everytthing, ect.  I want my shop to look perfect for its 1 year birthday.

If anyone has any suggestions on how to fix it up even more, please let me know!  Thanks.

Been around

So May was a slow month for me, but a good one considering I had a lot going on.  I didnt spend too much time on my etsy shop, blog, facebook, ect.  But sales were better than expected for the lack of effort I put in to last month.  But this month will be better.  I've been busy with trying to get school stuff settled in for both me and my son, work, I got really sick for a few days, now a lot of stuff is taken care of and I have more free time.

I have also been looking for clothes.  My only problem is, I am broke.  No kidding, eaither.  My etsy money is seprate from my real money, so I'm not even going to tap into that.  Ebay is even more than I can afford.  So I do have a $15 dollar certificate for ebay (I bought for $7 on Groupon a while back), and a $20 certificate for Plato's closet (A retail shop around here, I also bought for $10 on Groupon).  Any other suggestions?

My biggest problem is all the clothes I still have!  I've sold some on Ebay, to make a little money to also go toward new clothes, but I seriously have 50 shirts and I wear them all, and like 20 pairs of pants and shorts and I wear them all.  But mostly, my clothes I have had since highschool, and its a sentimental value and I dont wanna let them go (even though I should).

I did break down and spend $60 on two pairs of new shoes from Rocketdog.com.  The joint sneakers, becasue they my favorite.  I cant find them in stores anymore, and my pair have holes in them.  I tapped them up long enough, and finally found two pairs on the website in my size (theyre ALWAYS out of my size) so I broke down and bought some.

So if any of you have any suggestions on where to buy cheap clothes online other than ebay, let me know!  Thanks.
