Some blog with your coffee?

Good morning friends!  First day of the rest of my life...blah blah blah =) anyone else say that every morning?  Only on my second cup of coffee so this blog post may not be as emoticon filled haha.  Well for starters I have to say that I absolutely love Psych and I woke up chuckling about the part where the victims name was Kenny Loggins and Shawn said, "So he's not alright?" *snort*  A little 'serious' stuff...finally finished all of my tax stuff, just gotta figure out what I do with it now! Really happy only ended up losing about $600 last year (I didn't calculate in my car payments for the time I had the biz or my laptop), not bad for my first year of working for myself. I also decided a few days ago that I'm going to take this semester online. Last semester I had to commute 30mins there and 30mins back, almost everything I learned was something I read in one of the books or looked up online, and we took our tests online.....so I decided this semester I will save my gas & time and just do it on my own schedule at home (which will help the biz a lot b/c its unpredictable).
Well I need to start working. I'm trying to add some more items to the free online marketplaces and link back to my Artfire shop to help bring in some more traffic. Which reminds me, if you haven't already check out www.foundhandmade.com its no longer free but if you have a little extra to spend promoting its a kind of cool site (and you can change out the items in your blocks as often as you want). I'm giving the 5 blocks for $20 a try this month, I'll let everyone know how it goes! New item:
Zebra Double Light Plate Cover
If you have a moment stop by and enter in the Artfire Fun Cute & Whimsical Guild's first giveaway HERE. I'm the sponsor! The winner gets 1 free switch plate from my shop!
And please stop by and show this week's featured product for my guild, Artfire Décor,  some love

I almost forgot to say!! Artfire is now offering market hubs! They show up on your listings and link back to sites you have accounts with (Etsy, blogger, flickr, etc.). Here's a snapshot of what mine looks like:(To access your hub go to "My Artfire" and on the left hand menu, under 'Promote' you will see "Market Hub")
I hope everyone has a wonderful, safe weekend!!!
