Howdy! Before we get started, you might want to grab a cup of coffee or a glass of wine here, as I tend to ramble a bit...First of all, let me tell you a little bit about the reason for this blog in the first place. You see, I have another blog called, "365 Days Of The Year." Four years ago, I started it as a challenge to post a photo a day on it for a year, and I did! When my year was up, I thought I could just drop it, but I found I missed it. So, instead of the pressure of taking a "picture worthy picture" every day, I just started to post random thoughts and stories of my family and friends, with an occasional picture. After each year, I would have the entire year made into a hard cover book, to some day give to our son Landon. I also have a handbag business that I do on the side from my full time childcare business. Occasionally, I would post on my blog, things about purses or shows/expos that I was doing and it just didn't feel right. It was business and my blog was for family, friends, and my place to go to vent or just tell my little stories. I would also post a bit about business on facebook and that didn't feel right either. Now, I have started to dip my toes in a little crafty stuff. Nothing major, but a little something here and there and I needed a place to put it along with my purses that felt right. That place is here. Here I will post things about purses, re-purposing, flea marketing, or maybe just take you along on a few road trips with me. Wherever it takes us, I hope the trip is as much fun for you as it is for me. Ready to ride?
I know. I know. The length of that purse site link is insane! But, when I created it, I couldn't think of anything short and cute that wasn't already taken, like... "The Swedish Cowgirl." Ha! By the way, I am 1/2 Swedish. On the other side it's a bit Heinz 57. English, Dutch, German, Irish, Chinese and Indian! My dad's side was the wild side! So, it is what it is. I am what I am.
Farewell Ebay! After much consideration, I have decided to close my Ebay store. I couldn't list my purses, because there were already 5,433,444 or so purse stores on there and I could not compete with their prices. Those stores buy by the truckload. Me. I buy one box at a time. While the hats and flip flops are cute and fun, without my purses, my heart just wasn't in it. So, the new plan is, (Alw...ays have a plan B! And a C and a D....I think I am on plan X about now...ha!) I am in the process of either adding a shopping cart to my existing website or start a new website with a shopping cart altogether. It's all a time consuming process but eventually it will all come together. Bear with me, once again. It will happen!!
If you are going to be in Jamestown, Mn on Saturday. (July 6th) Head on over to the Whitecloud Festival. I'll be there with my purses! Just for a few hours though. But, there will be tons of fun the whole weekend. Something for everyone!!
