I lack motivation

I've been so busy cleaning house from top to bottom getting it ready to get my stepson for the summer that I haven't had much time to work on my shop. What little time I do get, I'm not motivated to do anything. A lot of the lack of motivation comes from how boring and time consuming it is to copy listings over from my old shop and some is because I have new products and either don't have the packaging for them I want or I can't get pictures to come out worth anything. Hopefully soon I'll get my motivation back because I only had one sale last month in the shop. I know one sale is better than none and pretty good considering I hadn't had it open long but with my old shop I was used to getting at least 3 sales a month and it was starting to look like my business was going somewhere.

Is anyone else having any problems getting motivated?

Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day everyone! Is it just me or does it just not fit to say Happy Memorial day in a way? I mean, it's to remember and honor the fallen and to me that is sad that there are so many men and women who have given their lives to serve our country. At the same time, it also makes me proud that so many have and continue to protect us and to fight for us. I'm proud of my husband, my uncles, my grandparents, and everyone who serve and have served.

I hope you enjoy this holiday with family and friends but please be sure to observe the moment of remembrance today at 3 pm local time.

Happy Tuesday!

So, my last blog for my old shop I had a really hard time remembering to post on my blog. Well this time, I've made out a daily to do list and posting on my blog is at the top of that list. I've been working on slowly getting items into my Etsy shop. When I get that finished, I'm going to work on getting my items into my 1000markets shop as well (and pictures changed to the newer ones for items I already have listed). I did have one sale in my new shop last week so that was really exciting.

Hope you have a great day!

Welcome to my new blog

Hi all and welcome to my new blog.

I'm so excited to be getting everything changed over to my new name. I have a lot to relist in the new shop though and that may take a while. I'm going to spread the listings out so hopefully some new people can find my items and my shop. The new shop is: http://www.etsy.com/shop/EssentialsbySondra . I am also going to try to get some new pictures of some of my items this weekend as well.
