Now, how is this connected to Thankful Thursday you ask?? Let me tell you!
Not only is this hardworking small business owner, faithful teammate and wonderful designer good at what she does, she is also a warm and helpful person - someone I am proud to call my friend!
A couple of weeks ago, I noticed that she was about to hit 200 sales and I thought to myself, WOW! What an accomplishment!! And like anyone else would, I thought, I wonder how she did it. So I asked!! And right away Sandra made a list for me to follow of things that she has done to get the word out about her shop. And as I'm gearing up for another school year, I am busy getting it all in place so that I can continue to follow her suggestions as life gets a little more complicated.
And the best part?!?! As I am starting and trying new things, she has been there to bounce ideas off of and to get a second opinion from. I have appreciated her honesty, even when it wasn't what I wanted to hear. Every suggestion she has made is from the heart, from her own objective eye and is made because she wants me to succeed. And the bottom line?? I trust her opinion! I mean, who wouldn't with a record like hers!!
So.... THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, my dear friend!

Here is a little sneak peak at the magazine... I just know you are going to love it!!
Thanks so much to everyone who commented on the blog post and for those of you who sent me ideas through etsy! Although I wasn't able to get it all done before going on my trip, I was able to decide on my favorite and Daisy Creek Overflow really caught my attention. Now the easy part (right?!?!) - I just need to get the logo, avatar, shop set up and items listed. Well, maybe that's not the easy part, but it's so much easier now that I have a name!!
Thanks so much, rozzissweetpeas, for your creative suggestion!! You rock!
