The Halloween Fairy

Just wanted to post a few of my favorite Halloween photos here. Little S had lots of fun last night, and even though she doesn't get a lot of sugar normally, she's loving the fact that she has a huge basket full of candy that she thinks she's going to get to eat. LOL

Looking For Me Locally?

Over the next few weeks, I'll be at the Church of the Redeemer Christmas Market on November 7th in Reynoldsburg, OH and the Mettler-Toledo United Way Holiday Shopping Event on November 13th near Polaris. My work is consigned at the Circa Circus shop at the Pink Moon Cupcake Bakery in Powell, Ohio.

I'm hoping to get in a show in Granville, Ohio in early December, so I'll keep you posted.

Goals for this Week

I'd like to start making Sunday posts my "Goals for the Week" post for a few reasons:
1. to motivate me to get more done
2. to keep customers up-to-date on their orders
3. I need a written list to stay organized

So this week, here's what I'm planning to get accomplished:
1. Finish premade boy scrapbook pages for Alainedesigns, photograph all for her, and ship by Wed.
2. Tags for ITH Creations--finish and ship
3. Tags for The Painted House and More--finish and ship
4. Samples, then actual stickers, earring and pendant cards, mini cards, etc. for smartypantsdesign--finish and ship
5. Trick-or-Treat--must buy candy at some point before Thurs., charge camera batteries
6. Work on craft show items for show on Nov. 7th

Friday Favorites--Fairy Wings

How do you keep a toddler busy for hours? Buy her fairy wings and a tutu, of course! My daughter and I met with local Etsyian, CurlyGirlBowTique, today, and were thrilled with her customer service. She brought several sets of wings and tutus that my daughter could try on and pick from for her Halloween costume, and having a daughter of her own, she was extremely patient. Did I mention that the wings and tutus are absolutely adorable AND reasonably-priced?

When we got home, all Little S wanted to do was wear her tutu and wings and "fly" around the house. Seriously. She's going to sleep great tonight. :)

the fairy wings ($8, small)

Can we say blog neglect?

I finally found my laptop cord while unpacking, so I should be able to blog more faithfully starting this week.

My new scrapbook room is almost finished--pictures coming soon!
We're able to get both cars in the garage--yay!
We're down to the last few boxes to unpack and put away!
I'm finally back to working on orders!!!

Moving, Moving, Moving--Finally!

After a week and a half delay, we finally closed on our new home yesterday and started moving boxes. Today was spent cleaning, unpacking kitchen and other items, etc., and we're exhausted! Hopefully, we'll get more done tomorrow, and then the movers come on Monday to get all of the big items for the new house. I hope to have my office/ scrap room set up enough to start working on Tues. or Wed. Thanks so much for your patience!

399 Sales!

My next sale, #400, will get some great freebies w/ their order. Will it be you?

Back Open For Business!

While I haven't added any new items beyond relisting, I'm happy to say that both my Etsy and Artfire shops are back open as of this afternoon. Since it looks like this house moving/ closing is going to keep dragging out a bit, I need to keep busy to keep my mind off of things.

New items, holiday cards and items, and more coming soon, along with my big 2 year Etsy-versary sale!

My Two Year Etsy-Versary!

October 1st is officially my two year etsy-versary! I can't believe that I started T and Little S Designs and decided to take the step to opening an online shop two years ago. Thank you so much for your continued ideas, support, patience, friendship, etc. I truly have the best customers and friends!

Look for an upcoming Etsy-versary sale around October 15th to celebrate! More details to come once we get settled in the new house!
