100 sales on etsy

I finally had my 100 th sale on my Sign Language Collection shop! It's taken almost 2 1/2 years! I guess I am a slow learner....I know that I should list multiple items everyday, and I have good intentions, but then life takes over. Like this morning we found that our bikes had been stolen out of our I called the police and then had to go to the bike shop to get a copy of the serial numbers for the report. (That was very helpful of them.) But it all takes time, along with working on orders and other jobs, here it is 4:00 and I only relisted one sold item and renewed an expired one!

Last Friday I did spend quite a bit of time trying to list things that had never been listed before, and the item in the picture is one of those new pieces. Well, it's new to etsy...truth be told I've had the photo sitting on my desktop for ages! See what I mean? Anyway, you can personalize this by ordering any name or word in a stand like this, because obviously you wouldn't want my name!

ACTS retreat

This is the logo I did for our parish's ACTS retreat. I am on the team again this year and am helping with the name tags and printed materials as well as playing guitar and singing for the masses. I really like being on team and it is a great bunch of women as usual. We are in the process of getting women to go on the retreat now, which can be challenging for our parish since so many people have already done it. Besides being a spiritual renewal, it is also a great way to meet other women of the parish who I've never met before--which is basically anyone who didn't have a child in one of my boys classes! You know how that is!
