F + A + S + C = BNR?

F + A + S + C = BNR - Fun + Angels( Etsy) + Sales + Charity( Joey's Eagles) = BNR!! Join us January 17th from 5 pm til 11pm!

The Etsy Angels guarantee lots of fun, some sales and a percentage of all their sales going to their charity of the month - Joey's Angels.

The Angels are a fantastic team of women that use their crafts to help out different charities at least 4 times a year. Learn more about us from our blog!

They donate a percentage of their sales to these charities... since Etsy has changed the way we promote we needed to find a new avenue to get our shops out there in order to raise these funds so along came BNRs( Buy and Replace Treasuries)!!

We had wonderful success for our last charity with our BNRs - Breast Cancer Awareness - 75 sales in first one and 48 in second one.

You do not have to be an angel to participate in the BNR nor do you need to donate but if you purchase from our shops we will be donating.

Here are a few items that will be available:
50% donated:

20% donated:

15% donated:

10% donated:

For other great shops and their donation intention check out our home thread: The Etsy Angels.

2012 Here I Come....

2012 is going to be another busy year for me. Therefore I am going to make a few goals for myself as I know I will be busy with the family and my crafting will take second place which is ok but I do want to continue with all the hard work I have been doing with my shop on Etsy and my consignment shops.

As most of you know I am expecting another grandchild in May/June. It is due in June but daughter in law can not seem to carry her babies full term so they will be taking the baby in May. We already have a 14 month old grandson and a 10 year old one so I will be helping with them if Mom ends up in the hospital for a long period of time with new baby.

I took 2 months of work to spend time with hubby...lol.. not knowing about the new baby.

Now on to my Goals:

* Adding at least 3 items a week to my shop -

* Making at least 3 items a week for my shop and consignment shops -

* Keep at least 2 items in draft listings for those weeks that I can not get items photoed.

* Here is the hard one... not to buy no more fabric unless I use up as much of the fabric I have before making that purchase or to destash it!

* Blogging once a week

I hope to add to those goals through out the year.

Have you made any goals for your shop or personal life?

Wonderful Quotes to live by!

"Flatter me, and I may not believe you. Criticize me, and I may not like you. Ignore me, and I may not forgive you. Encourage me, and I will not forget you."
