Bedtime Readings...

 Little man's has homework and part of it is that we read books to him everynight. SO that meant I needed to increase the amount of books we own. I am really into trying to get the classics into the boys. We have the "Little Engine that Could", Dr. Seuss' and more. One book I had always wanted to read for myself was the "Velveteen Rabbit". I came accross it at the store one day and knew I had to have it. I read it to little man for the first time and almost bawled my eyes out. It is a gorgeous book. I just loved the story! Have you read it?

Monday Madness! Burkes Leather Works

In planning for Christmas shopping for the family, I realize my brother is one of those people that has everything and is impossible to shop for...  I then was given the idea of getting him a guitar strap. He plays for our church and needs a new guitar strap.  And you guys know me, I love personalized items. So I found the perfect item on ETSY!

Online Christmas shopping is not only fun, but so easy! I have completed shopping for the extended family members that we exchange gifts with. Lots of my Christmas presents come from etsy and I love it!  One of the prettiest gifts is a necklace set that I want to keep for myself! It's so beautiful and well made. I found it in a shop named By Brenda Elaine. She has the most amazing and unique custom designed jewelry.

Monday Madness! Marias Mommy Designs

Don't you just love shopping online?  I have 2 boys and love the chance of shopping for girls. And doing it online is even more fun! Anytime I am in search for something super cute, I end up on Etsy.  My cousin just found out she is having a girl, the first on my husband's side of the family, so it's exciting.

She is not very girly at all. In fact, they are not even doing anything pink for this poor girl. lol  SO I took it upon myself to find the girliest thing for the baby. I got a personalized onesie with a pink tutu skirt and bow. Can't get much girlier than that! Marias Mommy Designs has the cutest items!

It is super cute and so well made.  I can't wait to see the baby wearing it. Marias Mommy Designs also has some gorgeous Holiday items and personalized stuff. Check her out on etsy here!

Also, go like her facebook page here to stay on top of her latest listings. :)

Email Etiquettes

Do you have proper e-mail etiquettes?  Not just e-mail, but messages as well?  Are you polite and courteous to whoever you are writing or just short and to the point?
The reason I ask is because I often try to be polite and nice. I always ask how they are doing and go on to the topic of the email. I end it with a thank you or have a great day - sometimes I even include a :).  What about you?
I find it that sometimes I get some very short or unfriendly messages. I know people are busy and sometimes it's just quick and easy to get to the point. But often, even a little :) can make a message seem friendlier.  Don't you think?

Email, Etsy, or Facebook?

How do you prefer to handle your business? How do you prefer to communicate with your customers?
Which is the best option for you?
Facebook, Etsy, or regular Email?

Which do you prefer and why?

To be honest, I find Facebook the easiest - mainly because I am on there all the time and have it on my phone. lol  It's quick and easy. I can post all my photos on there, have quick access to my messages and update my status and often as I'd like. 

What do you think?
