Working Hard....

I am trying really hard to promote my Etsy store/work.
The last couple of months have been almost dead as far as sales go. Only just this past week I have sold a few things and it's certainly brightened me up!

I want to get my shop with at least 2 pages full by the time I have my Christmas sale, but it's hard to get going (nothing new there!). Just last week Summer had a super bad fever reaching temps that were going to make us head to hospital. Fortunately she got over it after a few days and then hasn't come down with anything since. So we're not really sure what was wrong.......

I am so glad for modern science and remedies.

Summer and I spent the day at my Mothers yesterday. It takes me about 2 hours to drive there and then 2 back.....so it's a big day out for us. But it gets us out and I get to spend some much needed time with my mum and Summer gets to play with the parrots and see her gram & pops. It's worth that long ride.

This is my latest piece:


I am still enjoying my new background and look of my shop.

Still wasting time on Pinterest lol....

It's been overcast here for days now....humid and no rain.....well there was a little rain the other evening, actually it looked like it would storm, but it didn't. It's great for my photography!!

Going through some stresses at the moment, but I have to remind myself that we are fed, clothed and have a roof over our heads and we have each other and that is a heck of a lot to be happy about! And I get to have a hobby like this. It's hard sometimes to not get caught up in a bubble of my own trouble. Thinking of Jo  right now .... hope you get better hun ♥

And I hope everyone else is well too!! Sending out much love to you all 

Em ♥

Em, I really adore the new background in your shop...it is so bright and cheerful :-) You've done a great job with your photos...the background doesn't overwhelm your work, it just compliments it beautifully. Really, really stunning!

Good luck with filling your shop before Xmas...I'm jealous, I wish I had the time to do the same! I've given up for the rest of year because my books are full with custom orders...so I'm starting fresh in the new year LOL I really do miss making whatever I feel like, whenever I feel like it.

Sigh more like I'm jealous B! I have 1 custom order ...... I wish I had books filled till the new year. But everytime I get someone wanting a custom order, they think I'm able to do it for $10. I'll struggle to fill my shop with 2 pages of stuff, but I'm working on it. Thanks for stopping by and for giving me feedback on my shop!! ♥

Thanks for thinking of me sweets ~ I'm getting there with lots of handholding with my friends all over the world ♥ Our indidvidual stresses and strains are every bit important hun ~ just sometimes our own gets way to big lol like mine last week ;0)

Visiting your mum sounds lovely ~ and although a long ride at least its not a plane ride away ~ I'm lucky my Mum lives about 5 mins across town :D

I love your new background ~ Mine is still not right for me or my work and I'm not quite sure what to do ~ sure it will come to me ;)

Etys has been dead regarding sales lately but I too got a few this weekend. It doesn't take much to cheer us up, huh? LOL

And about Summer's fever - kids get high fever like that every now and then. Both of mine has. Nothing to worry about if it drops on its own after a few days. :)

And your background is amazing. I love the colours. Makes me long for more colour in my shop too.

Thanks Jo - I'm glad that there are lots of us who're able to help you get through! Yes you are very lucky that your mum is only 5 mins away....I haven't ever had that! My mum actually was a 3.5hr plane ride away a few years ago!

Anna, its amazing how much a sale can change the mood! Especially if you have more than one lol :) Glad you have been getting some too!! Summers temps only went down because of the medicine we were giving her whenever it went up, then I think on the last night she had it, she sweated it out. So happy it didn't get any higher...I hate hospitals.
