What Does It Take to Succeed in a Small Home Business?

I love to talk with and share ideas with others who are starting and running a business from home.  In today's troubled economy, working from home can be an answer to challenges many of us face.  It can also be a great way to be at home with your family...with your children by your side.  I recently found a wonderful lady who shares daily Home Business Succes Tips and Motivation! Check her out at http://www.facebook.com/HomeBizTips.  She recently posted an article that I really like! http://www.facebook.com/note.php?note_id=10150124282388136&id=676499674&ref=mf.  Success CAN be yours if you are willing to put in the time and sacrifices necessary.  Let's enjoy the journey along the way!

Have a great day!

I'm on Artfire!

I have been selling on etsy.com for awhile now, and I'm loving every minute of it!  I plan on staying with etsy! In order to broaden my horizons, I have also opened a new shop on artfire!  I look forward to working with both shops and reaching even more customers.  If you'd like to check out my new shop got to

Well...I took down the halloween decorations today and am thinking about Thanksgiving.  I must admit that I am REALLY thinking about Christmas decorations, but I know it's not time yet.  I woke up to some wonderful, crisp, cool weather this morning.  I have to say that I love it!  It was a very HOT summer here in Charlotte, NC this year, so the cooler weather is welcomed.  I do hope that we don't have another extreme winter! I hope we get a month or so of nice fall weather first!  I hope you are all having a wonderful week!  I am working on custom orders and getting ready for my first craft fair coming up on Nov. 13th.  Here is the flyer. If you are in the area, I'd love to have you stop in and see me!
