2013 in Review

2013 has been absolutely wonderful for me! I am so happy, thankful, and blessed!

I attended more craft shows than ever this year, starting in April and running all the way until last weekend! It has been a fun ride, but I am grateful for the break coming up. I have already started cleaning out my craft show gear and packing it away until April.

I was so blessed online as well! My blog is hopping, my twitter is tweeting, my facebook page has over 700 followers (my gosh!) and I hit 400+ sales on Etsy this year! I also branched out by claiming my domain name and I have started listing gobs of new goodies on Zibbet!

I finished out two complete semesters of school with my eyes squarely focused on the prize of an Advertising degree! With only 3 semesters left, I am ready and pumped to knock it all out just to grab that sweet sheepskin.

Kiddo turned 3 in July and potty trained right after!

Husband graduated from King College in May and snagged a wonderful job right before he graduated!

We got a new car!

2013 was an amazing year for my family and my business. I cannot wait to see what 2014 brings!

Dead Week...

So, it is dead week for me at East Tennessee State University.

I already feel dead.

I'm lucky that one class is essentially over, barring a quiz later this week. Another class will be over Wednesday when I present my mock ad campaign for Hershey's Kisses. The last two will involved final exams, one of which should be a breeze, but the other will involve some intense studying. I'm looking forward to next Wednesday when school will officially be over for me (for a little while, at least!).

I am also excited to be covered up with orders! As you may know, I am running a sale in my Zibbet shop and my Etsy shop, featuring all of my products 15% off their original prices. I've seen loads of great, positive response and I've been working hard all weekend making lotions and bath bombs and filling my orders.

Oh! And I am working a 4 week craft show, which started this past saturday and runs through to Christmas. I'm stationed at the International Storytelling Center in Jonesborough, TN, and I had a great day out in the sunshine.

So, as you can see, I am a little covered up with craziness at the moment. And it seems like my blog is getting ignored for more pressing matters... SO! I have decided to take a small hiatus from my blog until I get through my finals, which are next week. My friday features will still run as scheduled, but my weekly Monday updates will have to wait.

I will see you all on the flip side! Happy Holidays!
