Glutton for punishment?

Soooooo, I guess you could say I'm a glutton for punishment. I have opened yet another online shop. This one is on ArtFire and you guessed it, it has the same name. LOL
They are still tweaking the site, so I still have my other 2 shops as well although the one on Ecrater hasn't done squat. I have had a few sales in my Etsy shop though. Yay!! I am running a special in my Etsy shop for November, Buy 10 hairties (handsewn and or crocheted) mix n match get FREE shipping!! I'm trying desperately to get sales as the alternator in my truck is going out and man are they expensive!!
I will be making some pecan turtles and some fudge and listing it as well. Please let everyone know to visit my shop for their Holiday shopping. Etsy is the best place to reach me for sales. ( You have to sign up to buy, but it is FREE.
I also have some new items I have listed on Etsy. I have a few new eye comforts, owie bags and some cute Penguin figurines.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving!!

Me and my Shadow

Well it's Saturday the 8th of November a very depressing day for me. Yesterday I had to put "my baby" of 15 years to sleep. For those of you who don't know, we had a Siamese mix cat named Shadow. He was our "child". We got him when he was just 2 weeks old and had to bottle feed him and everything.
He had been getting extremely fragile these last few months and we knew it would be soon, but it was too soon for me and my hubby. It is so hard to let go. We know he's not hurting anymore, but boy we sure are. I am having a lot of trouble writing this, so forgive me of any typo's. (Hard to see through tears) Mom and I took him in yesterday because he just wasn't getting any better and they said his kidneys were shutting down and it was just a matter of time. He also had some kind of mass on his shoulder. He was just miserable. So the inevitable had to be done. "Grandma" and I stayed with him till the end as I could not let him go alone. He really was a trooper and a fighter.
We are trying to focus on all the memories and our other cats as well, but it is still so hard to deal with the loss.
I am only writing this to let people know that he is gone. Please do not send condolences* that is not what we want or need. Thank you.
On another note, I am still on my campaign of smearing Google Adsense. Remember to stay away from those ads!!
Thanks again to everyone and please remember to visit my online shop for your hoilday shopping needs. I will adjust pricing for those that are local.
Also if anyone knows a cheap way of advertising online for my shops and my friends shops, please let me know. We really would like to see our sales increase as well as get our shops exposed more. Thanks again!!

Google AdSense IS a SCAM

Well, it's been about a week (I think) and wouldn't you know, my friend (who was also due to be paid) got her AdSense account cancelled. I say it's a HUGE scam and I WILL get the word out to anybody and everybody. My friend was going to use her monies for IVF treatment, mine was for bills, but Google thinks otherwise. Google is a good search engine, but that is as far as it goes! STAY AWAY FROM THEIR ADS!! DON'T post them, DON'T click on them, just stay far far away from them. This is one GOOD example of how the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. We were only trying to make a few extra bucks in this rotten economy. Google and their advertisers obviously aren't hurting, why do we have to suffer?
PLEASE,PLEASE,PLEASE send this out to EVERYONE you know. Help me spread the word about this SCAM!!!
