~MIA~ Oh, My!

Yes, I have been MIA when it comes to my blog... Shameful! It's true! I have been busy, though, so I kinda have an excuse ;) My Shop has kept me busy, which is a good thing. I'm telling you, getting a tiny, little, handmade shop off the ground takes A LOT of time and effort and more time and MORE EFFORT! ...But I will add that it's been fun! AND a great learning experience. I am also making GREAT connections with so many wonderful and insightful AND knowledgeable people! So, even with tons of TIME and EFFORT being put into this, I'm getting SO MUCH MORE out of it! I am on Etsy (still) with my shop and I also have a FAcebook page that is SLOWLY growing... I emphasize SLOWLY! LOL... I will say that I have FINALLY made it to 300 fans!!! YAY!!! Facebook is fun because it allows me to interact so much with my fans. I do lots of giveaways and contests; it's a total blast for me. I hope it is at least half as fun for my fans! I am also expanding the types of items I make and offer. THIS is the MOST fun!!! I am getting more and more comfortable behind my sewing machine which is really opening up possibilities and a WORLD of enjoyment for me! WIN/WIN all around! I offered a new item in my shop and on FAcebook and people really LOVED it and my sales really boosted! THAT was exciting! It was the biggest activity I had seen with my little shop! It not only proved that I loved my item, but a lot of other people liked it as well. My Rockabilly, Retro Twisty Headbands:
It is safe to say that this item will be a favorite of mine for a long time! I LOVE wearing them myself, but I love them even more because of the attention it gained my little shop! So, I'm continuing to "spread my wings" and "get my feet wet" in the world of Etsy and Facebook and marketing and networking and etc, etc, etc--- I am having such a blast along the way and loving and appreciating the friendships I'm making along the way! So, as I end this blog post today, I want to encourage you to go ahead and take a leap. Believe in yourself. Branch out of your comfort zone. Connect with POSITIVE like-minded people and HAVE FUN!!!

Couons & Giveaways

I know I have been MIA in the blog world lately... End of school, deadlines, Baseball (my 7 year old son and the Little Yankees), and working on updating products, introducing new products and an overall "re-vamping" of my business, The Kandy Shoppe... not to mention everything else that comes with summer "vacation"...
I'm getting closer to 200 facebook fans on my facebook page, TheKandyShoppe ... When I hit the big 2 0 0 I will be having a GIVEAWAY... A random drawing will be held with every one of my first 200 fans... The Winner will receive a fabulous gift from The Kandy Shoppe ... Getting close... If you haven't liked me yet, please visit my Facebook page =)
Also, going on right now until the end of June (June 30, 2011) I have a FACEBOOK FANS ONLY coupon for 15% off your purchase... Visit my Facebook page for more details...
After lots of experimenting, challenges and research, I have decided on a few NEW ITEMS to add to The Kandy Shoppe...  I will have a special "unveiling" event with lots of goodies and fun so stay tuned for that...  It's so exciting!!!!   I LOVE crafting and trying new things and I LOVE when someone else loves and appreciates my work... I am so incredibly blessed to be able to do what I am doing.  I am over-joyed and so very appreciative of everyone who supports my little business!!
So, my bloggy friends, bear with me.  I am still here.  I've just been busy!  I hope you are all enjoying your summer to the fullest!!!
