Destash

I spent the day yesterday photographing and then listing 20 items in my store. Not anything pretty or shiny though. I listed 20 listings (they may or may not contain multiple parts) in my new destash section. It is all paper and stamps and things that I am just not using. I love to buy this stuff, I really need to start using it or clearing it out to make room for the stuff I am using.

I am pretty pleased with myself for getting it all done on the one hand. On the other hand though, I am annoyed that I can't do that with my regular items in my store. I really need to get better at that.

Anyways, here is the destash link. Check it out and maybe you'll find something you need.http://www.etsy.com/shop.php?user_id=6183547&section_id=6153021

I'm still alive. Just feeling kind of burned out lately. Work is long and difficult at times - it seems like there is so much to do, and not enough time. But I am still alive. I will update more later.

Grr-Brrrr

It was snowing in downtown Edmonton this afternoon as I left work. Snowing.

I was wearing sandals and a light sweater. I think my feet were going to fall off if I had to wait much monger for the bus! Brrr. Well, I got home and immediately left again to go pick up a lasagna. There is nothing better for a cold miserable afternoon than lasagna.

Ok, homemade would be better, but I need a good recipe for it. Anyone have a good one?

Looking forward to chat tonight!

Happy list

Do you know what is a good feeling? Telling someone online that you like them and then making them blush in real life. I am happy to have made someone that happy.

What makes me happy today?

Hmmm...

  • 0.50$ cupcakes are pretty darn good!
  • The gorgeous weather outside
  • My husband showing up at work with sushi for me!!!!
  • Cheese (this will always be on this list whether or not I've had any that day)
  • Sleeping with the windows open
  • Being environmentally friendly and taking the bus
  • My ipod for the bus
  • Planning a picnic for dinner
  • Thinking of my family and friends
  • New babies (not mine lol)
  • Gardening - today would be a perfect day to garden, alas, my apartment is tiny and no balcony
  • Feeling productive after a lovely, lazy weekend
  • Spellcheck

What are you happy about today?

Thank you

What a fabulous week it has been. I've said it before, I'll say it again, this group of people on the Etsy Alberta Street Team are the most fabulous people in the world!

Our sale is over and all told, we had 42 shops across Alberta participating in the sale! That is fantastic. I cannot express enough happiness and pleasure this sale has brought me - not from a sellers perspective, but from group dynamic sort of way. Hmm, let me try explain that better! This sale started as a bit of a joke, a longing for sales sort of. We were bouncing the idea around and then one girl started organizing it. Then another volunteered to help and from there it escalated into the aforementioned 42 shops participating.

This whole sale was a wonderful bonding experience. We had a team forum thread for promoting the sale and there was someone on there constantly! In fact, there were many people on there and we ended up filling 133 pages (at 10 posts a page roughly).

That is amazing!

So, thank you. Thank you to you, the readers for coming and checking out the sale. Thank you to everyone who made a purchase. Thank you to my team members who made this so much fun!

Now we need to work on our meet up!

Want to see something lovely?

Hey guys I just wanted to go off on a tangent for a moment and share something beautiful.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=orukqxeWmM0

I love The Beatles and that is my favourite song :)

Oh, I should share this one too. I found this a while ago but it still makes me smile and tear up a little in happiness.

Happy Saturday

Hello and happy Saturday everyone. Today is day 2 of the May Madness Sale presented by the Etsy Alberta Street Team (complete list of stores attending here: http://etsyalberta.blogspot.com/ ) and things are going well so far! I've had one sale! So super excited about it!!!!! The others are doing well too.

Today is a gorgeous day out there - finally! We are going to get up to 19 degrees (C) and I think it would be a great day for a walk and maybe a picnic in the park. Hmm, that is a great idea actually. Going to plan that now!

I also have to remember to upload more pictures and items to Etsy today!
