Functional New Design!

So everyone has some sort of small gadget right? Iphone, Blackberry, Ipod, Itouch etc etc etc. But also most young people- college age specifically need to have their campus access card with them at all times- get into their dorms, eat lunch, check out books etc etc etc. Thus, my newest design. Fits on your belt, backpack, tote or handbag. Of course these are not just for college age girls, these are great for any woman who wants the convenience of having easy access too! I only have made a few so far but more will be made and listed in my shop in the coming weeks. Just click here to see my current ones available.

5 year Etsy-versary tomorrow

Anniversaries tend not to impress me much, but I must say I am proud that I have made it on Etsy for 5 years now. When I started I only looked about 1 month in advance, knowing how difficult it was going to be , I just did not want to get my hopes up. So here it is 5 years later- WOW! I will admit this past one was the most difficult, sales were way down. I had to really watch my costs. I am really hoping 2012 will be better.
Well, I always do some sort of SALE during my Etsy-versary and this year won't be any different but I will need to post-pone it by about a week since this up coming week is crazy crazy!!
I have to take my oldest back to college on Monday, then I have to get some medical test dones on Tuesday, Wednesday/Thursday is back to North Carolina for house closing. So I think I will set the sale up to start on Friday-- details and more on that in a few days.
Have a great weekend :)

Just one of my latest pouches!

Trip to North Carolina

So I have been waiting for almost 10 years to move back to North Carolina. My youngest daughter is a senior and plans to attend University in NC. My oldest daughter is still deciding but realizes that she will probably not want to be so far away from family once we move this spring.
We purchased a home to be built and went over to see it this weekend. It is totally finished and if all goes well closing will be in just a few short weeks--very happy and excited :)
My husband wants to be able to spend his retirement years enjoying as much as possible his favorite pass time- GOLF! The house we bought is in a golfing community within our very tight financial budget. He knows that as his cancer progresses there will be a time when he will not be able to do the things he loves so we thought time is key in living the life one always dreamed.
