Success is more than what we've been taught.

Yesterday was one of the best days of my life.  I’ve been working on my Etsy store for 2 and a half weeks, and yesterday I finished, and launched it!  I felt so amazing after I launched it, and then it got better, I made 11 sales. I’m telling you, the feeling that comes over you…

LTB – Never Stop Trying

Clearly, I understand the importance of shoulder pads in business at a young age.

For today’s episode of Let’s Talk Business, I’d like to tell you a story about epic fails! When I was five, I was gifted with a beautiful, plastic self-inking stamp.  The image was a strawberry with a happy face, and the ink was strawberry scented.  I was pleased.  I realized that I really enjoyed the…

Snowy White Dough Ornaments - Yin Mom, Yang Mom

In an effort to increase that loving feeling that is just so needed in this complicated world, I’ve been spending more time lately doing crafty stuff with the kids, for two reasons: 1. Cold weekends are a huge catalyst for cabin fever, (kids bouncing off walls, making mischief). Crafts contain the mess to one room,…
