Hi Ya'll!! I hope you all are or had an amazing Christmas! This was my daughters first Christmas and everything was amazing. Santa brought so many great things and it was just a great day seeing family. The food was so good and I am so tired and full.
To top it off my stores online are doing great! I am getting so much traffic, and starting to really get the hang of having a business online. I know once school starts it will be hectic keeping up with that, work and having a child, but I am going to try to do it all :)
Also I am having so much fun on Twittter! I am in love with it and following so many fun people to read all their tweets and nonsense. Especially the celebs. hehe
Well Tomorrow I will post some favorite pictures from the weekend. But for now I leave you with this one:
So we are officially in Texas visiting my Mom and kids! I am so excited to be here and I have missed them so much.
Reagan did amazing on both plane rides! We left LAX to El Paso and she laughed, giggled and played the whole way. Even with her two bottom teeth coming through! She is such a trooper. Then from El Paso to Austin she slept the whole way. Jason couldn't make it out cause of work (boo) but next time he will defiantly be here! I was a nervous wreck flying alone with her but I read a million blogs from ladies who have done it before and it turned out perfect!
So my Mom and I were driving past some homes that are amazing! They look like the million dollar homes in California. Then she tells me that they are on a 1/2 acre of land, 4 bedrooms and they are only $249,000!!!
Ugh I think we might be moving out to Texas! I have lived here before and really enjoyed it. And there is no way we would ever be able to buy a home like this in California. They are just too expensive. But Jason has a really good job he has been working out for 11 years, and in Texas he has nothing for work. Once I become an LVN I will be working but still. It makes me a nervous wreck. I will just pray on it and see what God does for us. :)
My Mom is helping me with my eBay stores. She even offered to sell my items on her stores (since she is higher ranked) and then I just make them and mail them out! I am super exited because this will be able to be a way for me to stay home with my children and still have an income. I am so thankful for my family who is amazing.
Well I am off to list things on eBay and Etsy!! :) Oh and we are off to see Santa today! WOOHOO
Last night I received a message from Ebay saying one of my tutu's sold!!! I was so excited! That is my first sale for Reagan's Closet on Ebay! It made me feel so proud and made me feel even more encouraged to put more on Ebay. It is the best feeling ever!!
Then to top it off I am off to see my Mom and family in Texas for a whole week! I am so excited about that too. I can not wait. I will probably take things to craft there so I can be working and enjoying everyone. I will craft when my little brother and sister are in school. Its a win win for everyone. :) We shall see if I even follow through with it lol
Well I am off to study for my LAST final and start getting ready to pack since I leave on Thursday!
Sorry for the lack of posting in the past few days. I just have been struggling with a personal matter and I let it consume me. But no more. I do not want to be upset or sad anymore so I am just washing my hands of it and leave it in God's hands and whatever happens happens. It is no longer my responsibility.
So I have been doing the Extreme Couponing and I am trying to learn how to do Whole Foods. Every store is different with coupons, and they do not have to many on the staple items like the other stores.
Have any of you done this yet? Do any of you Extreme Coupon?
I find it so thrilling and fun to see the prices go down! With the holidays it is on hold but I can't wait to start up again before school.
The weekend was full of fun!
Well I better get going, baby needs to be feed and dressed for the day.
So Rea has decided that she is "allergic" to her room. She doesn't like to take naps there or sleep through the night in there either. She will sleep 10+ hours in the pack and play in our room but not her room. Does anyone have any advice? Any tricks of the trade? We do not do the cry it out method because we share a home so thats one reason and then I don't think I would be able to listen to it.
I am just so over not sleeping at night. As soon as I go down she wakes up. And always at 4am she just wants us to bring her to our room, and she knows when she's not in our room. I am so just mentally exhausted and just don't know what to do anymore.
Mines was great! Busy like usual, trying to get my ebay and etsy accounts up and running. My goal by this time NEXT year my stores will start generating revenue. I am determined to one day have my own business and be expanding into more than just tutu's and children items.
I have learned a lot from my Mother and her husband who have made a great living off ebay.
So we shall see if I have the nitch for this type of work. I just have to remember this is my income and how I am going to support my family.
So want to see some pictures of my tutu's?? Okay Perfect!! ;)
I know aren't they just adorable?!?!
They are a lot of fun to make too!
I just hope I do not get discouraged and with this adventure.
I know it is hard work, everything is hard work in life but if it is something you enjoy you will succeed.
Any suggestions for marketing??
I heard blogs are a great way, so maybe this will help.
I just don't want my whole blog to be about my business.
