Oh, dear friends, what a ride this whole candle season
is turning out to be! Since I started my Etsy shop I have
shipped packages at least once a week, often three or
four times a week. I am so blessed by the response there.
I have easily tripled my fund raiser work this year and am
actively looking for an off site location to make candles.
Yes, my business is growing that much and quickly.
Last evening one of the public school fundraiser coordinators
asked if she could invite two other groups to join them in
their fund raiser. I gulped, turned white...told Warren...and
he said, "The answer is YES!".
My belly is in a happy uproar
at all of this excitement.
Later this week I will run a Heartsy Deal
in my shop which will likely generate a lot
of new customers. It is like Groupon
but for Etsy. I hope you'll take advantage of
it if you've been thinking of trying my candles
but haven't done so yet. It runs for VIP's on
Wednesday...if you buy a VIP pass you pay
$10 and get a $31 voucher for my shop.
On Thursday the regular Heartsy members
will pay $10 and receive a $21 voucher for
Good Neighbors Candle Co. on Etsy.
I take regular breaks to take kids to
doctor appointments, work and .....
Yep! It has to happen regularly or
a certain someone gets cranky.
Its not me.
But one I love dearly and she
pays for her own addiction so
I am willing to enable her for now.
Oh! And she is learning to drive.
She does very well and hopes to
be much more independent in
You know, the month with all of
the snow and ice around here?
Yep! That month.
I'm in denial.
I understand, now better than ever,
why God led by example and rested
on the seventh day.
It is good for us.
Not always easy to just stop
but definitely wise to do as He did.
So....I saw Courageous for the third
time last night.
Am I crazy?
Warren hadn't seen it yet
and he needed to.
Mrs. Rabe and Emma came along.
Last Sunday night I had seen it
with their family and Chelsea.
I went with our Moms during the week.
So...really it is not ALL about candles here.
This is why I haven't posted much.
Not a lot to share that you'd even care about.
But, I wanted to check in and say that
I miss you!
Love the customer/blog reader connections
that have been experienced over the past
