Random

Well, I've decided I must've scared everyone off with my ANTI-FUR post last week. No one is commenting anymore. OH well:) I've decided I'm DEFINITELY doing an Etsy Shop. I'm SO EXCITED! I plan on officially opening shop December 1, 2008! I get my serger November 4th- so that is when the sewing will begin! It's actually perfect timing because I just got a JoAnns flyer in the mail with one of those 10% off entire purchase! YES! I am sooooo excited I can hardly stand it! Oh- also, the reason I'm not opening for a month is because we are going to Lizzie's for Thanksgiving, and she will take the pics of all my stuff.

I am on Etsy...literally all day long looking at different products- what sells, what doesn't...looking at Martha...getting more ideas...basically I am way excited, but way nervous as well. Don't worry- I'm not going to go spend a billion dollars on this...I'm just going to make probably 7-10 items to post up front and then see how it goes! I am pretty nervous that I get all excited, and then it BOMBS! Yikes. That would stink. BUT, it is very very easy to see that happening. There are over 170,000 etsy shops right now. Crazy right? So whose to say I'd make it? No one. Anyway- look forward to December 1st because that is opening day!

Onto other business. We are moving this week! SO EXCITED! We are basically irking to get out of this place. Everytime I hear our neighbors or hear music in the ballroom, I think...thank goodness we are leaving!!! I have officially packed all our random wall and shelf decor. Thats....it. We really don't have much to pack. So- it won't be a big deal at all! Clay packed books and most of his electronic stuff. The great thing about this move is- I am pretty much going to have my sewing/craft room ALL to myself. Well, what I mean is- an entire room dedicated to just that. Clay can hang there if he wants:)

I can't remember anything else I was going to say. School is good. I think I find out my midterm grades tomorrow...I think...hopefully they're good..............................

Oh yeah- friday we are going to the Leslies for Halloween. The girls will play the piano in their little recital, and Rebecca and I will make homemade donuts and we will have a spooky dinner and everything! I'm way excited:)

Thaaaaaaaats it! Love to you all:)

I'm so glad you're going forward with Etsy...you'll do great I'm sure. Plus it will be fun for you and you'll learn a ton I'm sure. I'll be sure to check it out!

Oh my gosh, Halloween sounds so fun! I want to be there! I doubt you scared anyone off. It's probably just one of those busy times. I'm at Lizzie's right now, so I haven't looked much at anyhting in awhile. Don't worry about it. Keep speaking your mind. Etsy sounds awesome, I think you should TOTALLY do it! What a great idea! I wanted Amy to do it SO BAD! She has tons of napkins just sitting around and I think they would totally sell. Don't worry about the success. Just go for it. Things like that can't always be planned, it happens or it doesn't. You'll never know 'till you try. Pillow cases, good idea. And the napkins. Go for the eco friendly idea, well that's what Amy did. Anyway. I love you. BYE!

I think it is a great idea, and like megan says it will either take off or it won't. I used to sell lots of craft items and lots of candy at bazars at Christmas, and I made enough money to get gifts for the kids and others. So go figure. I loved doing it and people loved my candy. I later sold things on consignment at a boutique and that didn't go over nearly as good. Again go figure, So you never know I wish you great success and you can do it if others can. I know your grades will be good. Love you lots. grandma

Good luck on Etsy. I think it sounds lots of fun. I have actually never even heard of it. What is it? Have you found out what day you can start moving things into the new place yet? We will see you on Saturday for the big move. Let us know what time to be there. Have a great Halloween. Love you. bye now.

Hey Danyelli, ok if people aren't commenting it's because they're busy- not because of your fur post! ha- I wasn't offended at all- I thought it was funny and interesting, and I loved the video. Anyway- sorry I didn't sound so excited on the phone when you were asking my opinion, I had little Ahna next to me with dough all over, and so it was hard for me to talk. I really like your name, and I think you will be a sucess because, honestly- you are at like everything. And I'm not trying to be flattering, it's the truth. I am so excited for you, I really feel like you are going to do great. Don't be nervous, nobody is grading or judging you, it's your own thing that you can start and end whenever you want. I am so jealous that you are spending halloween with the leslies- so fun! It will be so cute to watch the girls- And I heard you're watching aracnaphobia! FUn! I am so excited for you to get your sewing room- you will love it! I need to call you, I need some opinions on what to ask for my birthday, and some other things. Alrighty- I love you- and congrats on the move!

Ok so I might be an idiot but what is Etsy? Anyway, hope things are good for you guys after the move and all and next time we are in Rexburg or you in Pocatello, we will have to get together.

I hope your etsy thing works out. that would be so neat. Maybe Amy will try again. I am glad you could go to Rebecca's. I was wondering if the girls like the movie!!! I am happy you have a room in your new house, and it is so nice that Clay can come in there too! ;-) I love you, it is getting late!
