LadyBug Bags

I had originally thought about making LadyBug Bags and putting in them samples of the things I make. I tried it out and didn't get any bites. I have decided to change routes with it. I have nearly 800+ friends on Facebook that do direct sales. I can charge $10 a month for 100 bags for me to fill with whatever they provide to put in them from mini catalogs, mini fliers, business cards, samples and more. I will put them in baskets and take to the different places like doctors offices, dentists, hospital staff, hair salons, nail salons and more. As well as handing them out myself and placing on cars and such.

I can get the baskets or larger gift bags from the dollar store or get them at flea markets or yard sales. I am going to email all my friends this evening and see what I can get going. I am still working on my crafts but had to share this new idea.

New website...

I tried the storenvy website and didn't not like how limited my option were with them so I changed my website. It is now and I have items on there ready to ship. I have tissue box covers, coaster sets, and checkbook covers right now but will be adding more items soon. There are plastic canvas items on there now but I will be adding sewn items as well here soon. I like Etsy more than the other website. I can do more with it.

We only have 18 more days and my son comes back from Kosovo to his home base of Fort Hood, TX and I can't wait to see him. We have not seen him in almost two years. I have my oldest daughter and granddaughter as well as my two little girls (who aren't so little anymore) to keep me occupied and inspired.

I like the people that I work with (well, some of them) but I need a I really want my website to get up and running. I hope I can achieve that soon.

SF 49'ers TBC

I made a tissue box cover for a customer a couple of weeks ago of the 49ers and she love it. I didn't have a pattern so I just looked at a picture online of one and counted out the stitches. What do you think?
