I only have a month and a half left of school before I finally get my Bachelor's Degree. After I am done with school, I'll start looking for a more full-time job, but until then, I will (hopefully) have even more time to dedicate to my beloved Etsy shop. Meanwhile, I am going to try something that is supposed to be trendy this fall-- Military stuff! I have a few ideas and some supplies already that I am pleased to announce are UPCYCLED! I love using upcycled stuff, it's just a rarity for me. My father in law gave me a bunch of his old army stuff-- blank dog tags and the stay-brite buttons with the Army Seal on them. I have some ideas for the dog tags, and some ideas for the buttons, but I am still waiting on my sewing machine. Hopefully it will be fixed soon and I can start practicing.
My fanpage has grown about 10 members lately, and my twitter following has exploded! (Well... relatively, anyway. Everything is relative, right?) Now, I just need the sales in my shop to follow the same trend. I have been working on refreshing listings (not renewing, but giving them makeovers). Hopefully, it works.
As far as the home front, things have been a roller coaster with sick family members, car wrecks, and a death, not to mention that graduation in the fairly near future. Child care has been a nightmare lately because of everything that has been happening. I just have to keep telling myself "One more month! One MORE MONTH!"
