Also a Treasury called Make it Personal with items from other shops that can be personalized for some great holiday gift giving.
Besides scoping out all the Teams and forums on the Etsy website and just trying to take it all in, I also created a group on Facebook. This group is growing and has a great set of like-minded shop owners supporting and sharing...everyone is welcome to join us at Handmade Shops. An additional blog has also been started HotPadHangout to focus specifically on my new shop and talk about promoting and marketing online.
So with the holidays here I am forced to take some time off and enjoy Family. My daughter is coming to stay for a day on Tuesday when classes end and my sister-in-law and family will be joining us for the entire weekend starting Wednesday. So as I enjoy family time and reflect on all I have to be thankful for, I will let my mind focus on my future plans and work on my mission statement. I know without a doubt my key interests are HomeGrown, HomeCooked and HomeCrafted .... where I am headed we have yet to see but I am sure it will be enjoyable.
p.s. I will miss you Mom and Dad and look forward to visiting some time around Christmas!
Happy Thanksgiving Everyone ... Enjoy!!
