Tuesday Tea Time

Won't you pull up a chair, grab a nice cup of hot tea and listen to me ramble for a bit?  Good!

I am excited to say that my Christmas shopping is finished.  I am one of those who starts my Christmas shopping in January.  I was a little behind this year, but caught up pretty quickly.  I did get my kiddos a few extra things today with some of the Cyber Monday sales, and I was excited that I got my son 3 items, and my daughter 2 and only spent $40!  And that is how much one thing was alone regularly priced!

I am concerned that I haven't gotten all my Christmas gifts made yet.  Which is only made worse when I realize most of my gifts this year are not store bought.  So while it seems like I have it all under control, I am really freaking out.  Seriously.  I need to make 7 nightgowns, several aprons, a few dishcloth sets, and I won't say what else.  Not. Cool.

Have you finished your shopping?  Have you started!?

I am also wondering how sales for everyone went?  I was incredibly disappoint with my sales.  Wait...let me say I was incredibly disappointed in my complete lack of sales.  Not one.  Nadda.  Zilch.  Zero.  Bumpkis.  Frustration.  Seriously, everything is 30% off, but still no sales!  I am beginning to think maybe people think I have some disease or something!

But, I will stop complaining.  I don't like complainers, so I don't want to become one.  Instead, I'll turn my little ol' computer on in the morning and start all over again.  I am trying to come up with unique ways to get my name out into the public eye more.  How do you promote and advertise?  I send a business card in with my bills, and everything I mail.  I promote on forums, and websites, as well as social networking sites.  Tonight, I created a mailer to send out to people around town, which was going superbly until I ran out of ink! If you would be so kind, let me know how you creatively get your business name out there!  Surely I am not the only one who needs a little help?!  I don't know.  And don't call me Shirley.
