I was thinking about my show this week and I have GOT to get my set up configured, so hopefully I can work on that this weekend and be ready to go for the show. I bought some new displays, so it won't be the same as last time. I always get so nervous for new shows. This one is in Elgin, I will get the information up soon for those of you people close to me!
So here is to hoping that this week gets better, because did I mention that my Honda is going into the shop tomorrow for work? Gahhh! The waterpump and belts and something else...I hate cars! So I guess it can only go up from here right??? Right??? ummm...okay!

Wow! So Valentine’s Day is finally here! I can’t believe how swiftly this year has been going. It’s almost surreal! This weekend brings upon us a Hallmark Holiday, you know where the card, candy and flower and Jewelry people all try and sell you their goodies and let you know that your loved ones will know you care if you buy them something. Well, isn’t that just foolish? And yet people flock to the stores year after year and buy, buy, buy. This year the gifts may not be as lavish, but there will still be gifts. There always are.Guess what? I’m a sucker for these holidays! haha! I hate cards, flowers and candy. I’m just not one that likes stuff that will die, you eat or just get thrown away. Get me a good book and I’m yours. As a kid, my parents always got us something special on Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day (and we’re Mexican!!), pretty much any little holiday. It made us feel just a little extra special than every other day. It made it fun and something to look forward to. So here I am, a mother of 3 and doing the same thing! My husband is fabulous at these sort of holidays, he likes to hide cards and presents and watch me find them. I love that this year this fun holiday is on a Saturday, so we are together all day. There is nothing romantic about the day, it’s just about being with loved ones. Our children join us a nice place for dinner and it’s more about LOVE itself than being in love. I like keeping it a day of being with our family. So now I’ve babbled on and on that it’s time for the reason I am here! HAHAHA!
Let’s pop into our shops and change up our featured items! Let’s make them holiday appropriate! You never know those last minute shoppers are still out there! Don’t forget about my giveaway going on this weekend! check it out, I will be picking the winner on Monday! Have a fabulously sweet weekend and go ahead, let the holiday take you over just a little bit! I won’t even let you know that I decorate for these little holidays too…oops…

My studio phone is so boring and blah, that I have been dying to spice it up with something totally fabulous and begin adding a little more decor to it. These phones totally caught my eye! I would love one in pink, so I'm checking a huge antique mall this weekend, if it's a no-go then I am going wiht the mint green!

I opened up those buttons and began sorting and then a bracelet formed, then it still looked plain, so I added pieces from broken vintage jewelry I came across at an estate sale. I love the Spring-like look of the outcome!

Have you ever called a customer service number only to be put on hold for what seemed like DAYS? It's quite annoying isn't it? Think of our convo system as our little customer service number! We need to respond in a timely manner. I KNOW that it's hard to respond rapidly, heck some days I don't even get on the computer until really late at night, but it's our job. Maybe put in your announcement how long it takes for you to reply to convos and if they have not heard from you to try messaging you again. If you will not be answering all day, go ahead and put that up there. When i'm gone for the day, I mention that. When I am keeping business hours, I mention that. When I am on vacation, I mention that. Keep your customers informed. I like to also mention my AOL instant messenger name and I keep that updated when I go out for the day too. I will also be adding on my email address today too since i've heard sometimes convos don't get to where they are going. It's good to keep everyone informed! I can't stand walking into a store and the only clerk working is in the backroom chatting away on the phone. It's not fun to have to wait, but if there were a sign that said 5 minutes, then I would understand! Let's try and run our businesses more efficiently! Have a great weekend everyone!
