Things have been crazy...sorry for neglecting!

I guess I should say things have been crazIER!  Been doing pretty well with sales lately and have a lot more motivation.  I think that extreme decline in sales for 10 days in December helped bring back the motivation when I finally started making sales again.  I actually worked from 8 to almost 6 nonstop (well there were a few twitter breaks but they were very short!) and now I don't know what to do with myself!  Usually in the evenings I'm still finishing up work but other than making new product (which I don't really need to do right now as I made new product today) there isn't anything that HAS to be done.  Maybe this free time will help me to quit neglecting my blog :) 
More serious news, my stepdad had to go in for a triple bypass last week .  My mom was staying at the hospital with him the entire week so on top of the normal work stuff I was running around taking care of her errands.  I wanted to help of course & didn't mind it at all but I have to say by about Saturday afternoon my head was ready to explode!  He got to check out yesterday and is at home now.  He has to go back in for another surgery on his leg as soon as he is well enough for it, then hopefully after that he will be surgery free.
and in the midst of all of this I decided to start an Artfire guild!  The turn out has been very good and I must admit I am very, very excited about it!!  I've started a blog for the guild if you'd like to check it out: http://ArtfireDecorGuild.Blogspot.com and if you sell décor products on Artfire and are interested in joining you can do so HERE.  
Two last things, I got the most fantastic fabric in the post today and of course made switch plates out of it as soon as it arrived!  Here is the outcome: 
Hot Pink Zebra Print....wowzas!!  I'm very excited about it, I think this one is about to top my best sellers list!  I'll take new pictures tomorrow when it is actually light outside so the colors will be true and everyone can see how hot pink it really is!
I also have a new creation....my Original Photography Switch Plates!  I have many photos from when I lived in Hawaii that I've been pondering what to do with other than just selling the prints and I think I may have figured it out (well atleast one thing to do with them).  Here is the first of the collection:
That's all for now =)
