Etsy or Facebook?

I've always been a proud shopper of etsy. Anytime I needed some kind of gift, I headed straight for etsy. My sister and mom both have shops on etsy and I have many friends with shops on etsy.

BUT I have noticed an increase in shops opening and selling on Facebook. I don't know about you, but I LIVE on facebook. It's a slight addiction that I am told I need to work on. lol  I follow a lotof different shops and love seeing their latest updates with new items and such.  That is not possible with etsy.  So I definetly think Facebook is a better way to promote and even make sales, don't you think?

In Facebook you can post tons of pictures, have sales or giveaways. Play games to promote your shop...  AND you don't have to pay any fees. You can also chit chat with lots of friends and stay updated on their latest items as well...

On etsy, you upload your item, pay a fee and that's about it. There are no for chat rooms, where we made several friends...

So my question for you, as a shop owner, do you prefer to sell on etsy or on facebook?

And as a shopper, do you prefer to shop on etsy or facebook?

I wann hear from you!

10 years...

Hubby and I celebrated our 10 year wedding anniversary this past March. We had a very nice date. We dressed up and had a photographer friend BRATOLA meet us in a pretty area to take our picture. I loved that we did that. It was so much fun and I loved having pictures for memories. We had a blast! Here are some of my faves!
I am so thankful for my amazing husband!

A New Year...

I decided that I will not make any resolutions. Mainly because I never stick to it... I do however want 2013 to bring some changes for me. 2012 was a good year. Nothing big or exciting happened. We had birthdays, anniversaries, Disney trips, and so much more!

My goal for 2013 is to get healthier. I also want to take more time to actually spend enjoying my boys and husband. I also need to take the time to take care of me...

2013 will mark hubby and mine's 10 year wedding anniversary. That's nuts!!! We plan on taking time this year to have many family outings and just send time together!

How about you? What are your plans for 2013?

Merry Christmas!

Wishing you and your family a very blessed Christmas season. May you have a great day and take the time to enjoy every minute with your family.

As crazy and stressful as things can get that day with us having to drive all over the place, my goal for the day is to enjoy my husband and sons and soak in the day! I can't wait to see their sweet, smiling faces as they see their surprises from Santa and mommy and daddy!

another craft project

Little man wanted to take a treat to his classmates. I really wanted to do something creative with candy canes. I looked online and all I found were reindeers. But I really wanted something different. And that is when I came up with angels.
I got the candy canes at Wal Mart. And then at the dollar store I got a huge bag of white rose petals for the wings, and sparkly pipe cleaners for the halo. I used gold or silver for the halo.
I hot glued the rose petals together to make them look like wings, and then put a dot of glue on the candy cane to glue the wings on there.  I then cut the pipe cleaners in half, and folded them up to look like a halo. I twisted it around the top of the candy cane.
The end result - an angel candy cane!
 These were also a big hit!
