yeah its April!! Marking the new thread.

loosethreads2 - congrats on your sale!!

sexyhandmade - very nice bags.

PlayinHookyDesigns - wow those hats are awesome!!

SnapStitch - very good question. I guess I never thought about it. I have let some of my christmas items expired and deactivate others.
I love priority mail. But I have been and still am having a hard time with getting customers to understand shipping costs. So I currently use First Class Mail for my items since they are small. It cost less and by going to the main post office most of my items get delivered within 3 days. Most of my items are small so depending on my mood I either buy a roll of bubble wrap & larger envelopes or the larger envelopes with bubble wrap already in them. That's my 2 cents worth :-) hope it helps!!

Congratulations on your sale loosethreads.

Lovely items BK, Koopdegrace,MagdaleneJewels, and MorgainLeFay.

Snapstitch check the date at the bottom of the listing and add 4 months to that would be my suggestion.

Just popping by to mark the new thread and thank everyone for your encouraging words about my new design.

Hello all! I'm slightly bummed this week. Only 1 sale. :( I was getting happily used to have at few a week and now my views are down too. I think I'm going to start making these cute little headbands though so hopefully I'll get some more sales out of them.

My family is coming in tomorrow for my son's 5th birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese on Saturday. I get majorly stressed at places like that so wish me luck! lol
