Well, I gues I did it right. LOL.
My name is Sherry and I operate a shop on Etsy called hairtiesgalorenmore. I just made my first sale on Wednesday and got my feedback today. I am so excited!! I can't wait for the holiday season (my first on Etsy) and hope to do quite well. No hoping to high tho cuz you just never know how things are going to be for people, me included.
I have been trying my hand at crafts for a few years now as I got tired of selling for others and getting nothing in return. I do a few craft shows a year with my Mom who makes bubbling nightlights (I will try to post a pic). We have 2 favorite shows a year, one is for a scholarship fund in honor of a girl killed in a car wreck and the other is for The American Cancer Society. We are on our cousin's team Fishing For A Cure. She (my cousin) is a 2 time breast cancer survivor. I also have a 6 year old niece that is a Leukemia survivor. We just had (1 month ago) her "No MO Chemo" party and it was great!!
I am getting ready to do a garage sale with my neighbor (my other Mom) to try to sell some more of my wares. She supports me as much as my real Mom and tries to help me out as much as possible too. I love having 2 Moms!!
I'm also getting ready to do an open house with one of my best friends on October 4th. We used to sell PartyLite together and are now out of that business and starting into a new venture with Primerica. I really need to get studying for my Life Insurance license so I can take my state test before I run out of time. I took my classes back in April (I think).
Anyway, we are doing an open house / bingo party to try and get rid of our stock. It was pretty successful when we tried it back in May. We also try to get crafters and other party plans involved so that they can get some sales and get their name out to the public more.
Everything has just been so hectic this summer that I have just lost all track of time. I fought with the cable company (and won) for a month, what a trip. Then this past Tuesday I get a phone call that my 16 year old niece was hit by a car. All is well tho, just bumps, bruises, scrapes and road rash. Oh, and a minor concussion.
Ok, I think I have done enuff babbling for now, but please feel free to visit my shop and maybe even make a purchase. LOL

hairtiesgalorenmore: This is a test, this is only a test.....

This is a test, this is only a test.....

I am so very new to blogging that I am just going to write this to see if I did everything correctly. If I did, I want to thank Wendi for getting back to me and helping me get started. I asked Wendi for help because she has a nice blogspot herself and something just drew me to convo her on Etsy. Thanks again Wendi!!
