As I mentioned in my last post, it's time for a give away!! I have lots to celebrate, so I figured I should Pay It Forward and share something with y'all!
This month has been crazy busy over at my shop. I've been really working on it a lot, trying a few new things and just keeping it going. It is A LOT of work! I know you all can understand, and I don't even sell that much each day, but it's enough to keep me busy!
My goal when I began the shop, Sugar*Sugar was two-fold:
1. Earn extra money doing something I love.
2. Focus on the things I love rather than the things I despise! ha!
Number 1 was tough at first. I started with around $100 and lots of advice from friends and TONS of support from my husband. I had a part time job that paid $10 an hour, but honestly, I just couldn't do it anymore. I soooo wanted to start something of my own (I always have...) and Etsy seemed like something I TOTALLY could manage.
Now, I know my little shop isn't HUGE or anything, but it does make Number 2 very do-able! I've mentioned before, that I was coming out of a hard place in life and seemed like I hated everyone and everything! I was hurt and angry about a lot, and at times, thought it would never end. So, focusing on the positive, REALLY, really changed my life.
All that said, I just reached a small goal in my shop, 200 sales! YIPEE! Oh, and also with the Somerset Life article... meeting all my blog/flickr/etsy gal pals.... it just TOO TOO MUCH!
But more than that, I am a MUCH happier and fulfilled person on the inside. Annnd, THAT, you cannot buy!
So for the GIVE AWAY... I'm so, SO sad that I missed ArtsyMama's For the Love of Supplies Swap... it's SO up my alley! Instead, I put a pretty chocolate box of goodies together for one of YOU!! Valentine's Day is coming soon!
To Pay It Forward, for all of the happiness I now enjoy, THANK YOU!
This is better than chocolate! I've added lots little fun bits for YOU to love!
Get a good peek, YOU just might be the owner of this sweet set of goodness!!!
I've included vintage buttons, trims, laces, die cuts, a ballerina cupcake topper, oh, all kinds of goodies! All in Pink and Red just in time for Valentine's Day!
I will be taking Give Away entries until midnight WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 6th... just leave me a comment! (Don't forget to leave me your info. in case you win!)
I will announce a winner on Thursday, Feb 7th!
Soooo, leave me a comment!
Happy Day Everyone!
And good luck!
