Christmas time...

Today I want to acknowledge some of the other artists I've come across lately and show off some of their awesome products for sale just in time for Christmas. Some of the artists I follow closely and some of them I found through Zazzle. I love them though! Christmas is one of my favorite times of year.

I've got to admit sometimes I wish I did wonderful work like a lot of these designers on Zazzle!! You can bet I'm proud to show off their work, though. Perhaps someday I'll set my focus on the Christmas photography shoot I'd like to do. My head is always spinning with ideas!

Thankful for a lot...

If any one wonders, I'm not one of those people who goes shopping the day after Thanksgiving. I personally like steering clear of insanity, long lines, and even harder-to-find parking spots. That and the weather decided to bring us snow, which isn't typically common in this area so the drivers are a tad insane. They just don't know how to handle the snow. So Friday I'll be sitting at home, enjoying the warmth of my house. If my husband chooses to go out like he wants to, so be it.. but I'll be enjoying relaxation.

Every year I am thankful for a lot. My friends, my family, security. I couldn't ask for more. I may never be making $1,000 a month with Zazzle (although that would be great), but I'm thankful to enjoy spending time making products there. Right now my husband has a secure job with the Navy and who wouldn't be thankful for that stability/security?

I know for some this time of year brings depression and heartache. I can only hope every one finds something to look forward to. I'm wishing every one who celebrates the holidays a wonderful time, full of love and laughter. I know I'm itching to start the holidays early - it's taken all my willpower not to put up the Christmas tree! However it is very much looking like a white Christmas already, and just in case it won't be you can imagine I took a lot of photos of the snow!

Warm wishes to all.

Edited to add: I do have to add an hour after I wrote this, I am now dealing with something I'm not thankful for. The snow has caused flickers and even though my other computer was on a surge protector, now when I turn the PC on it makes a clicking sound. Not exactly what I needed to deal with. It wouldn't load for a while, finally does... but every time I do anything on the computer it starts ticking for a few seconds and lags. Husband thinks I fried the hard drive and it's on it's last limb.

While this week has only brought two sales, I must admit I'm ready for the weekend and a fresh week. I'm not sure whether or not I should make this a weekend of rest, or be constructive. Sometimes I need a day or two away from Zazzle so I can catch up or just take a break. Perhaps I can convince my husband and son that we should go out and give us a chance to enjoy some Kitsap Peninsula beautiful locations. I love photography, so it's great to go out, explore, and take some awesome shots. I know there's been numerous times where I wished I had my camera glued to me at all times! I'm not sure if we will get out this weekend, it depends on how my husband's knee reacts. He had surgery a little less than 2 1/2 months ago, so his knee still is giving him hassle.

Here's what was this week's sellers:

Someone decided to buy a single baby footprint card from me. I do hope they enjoy it!! It's always great to see a sale, but I must admit it's nice to see them when they buy a baby footprint item.

This actually got a TBA (today's best award) from Zazzle a few days ago and was bought that same day! I thought it was exciting, considering I just barely designed and published it the night before. Honestly I think it's one of my favorite designs!

I wish everyone a great weekend, may you enjoy whatever it is you plan to do this weekend - whether it's work, chores, spending time with family, or getting out and visiting different locations!

New Products

Added some more products today!! These are the top ones:

I always love having fun with items, it's seriously a blast. It keeps me busy, entertained, creative, and fulfilled. It's not always easy, let me tell you! And someday soon I'm hoping it will pay off more. With 2 years until my husband becomes a civilian I would like to have a little more saved up for rainy days and emergencies. Let's face it, better to be prepared for the future, right?

Been slacking off

The last two weeks I haven't had one sale and I'm not surprised. This last two weeks I've been caught up in a whirlwind of emotions and haven't been able to get around to doing much. I guess I needed and deserved a break, so I had my break away from designing and going on Zazzle. Have to assume that would mean sales would halt since I wasn't marketing my products nor adding anything to my site. Am I upset? Sure, who likes when they're not making a profit? Am I going to get back to normal? You bet! I just have to still play balance as I'm fighting for time between my son, my husband, being a housewife, and trying to start this as a business. So hopefully I'll get back into the swing of things here soon!
