links + things

It's Friday. I'm sitting in Starbucks in my "hometown" {for those who don't know, the Mister & I moved about an hour away for his job} while my husband has his once-every-8-weeks doctor's appointment + medicine infusion.

I've been feeling a little blah about my blog + shop lately. I can't quite put my finger on what it is, but I might need to take a break sometime soon. We'll see. It's hard for me to stay away from my little corner of the internet. ;)

Kim's thoughts on blogging was a post I needed to read. Way to get up on your soapbox, girl!

Julie always cracks me up. She's awesome, seriously. & her latest printable? Yes, it is SO ME. {go check it out!}

My sweet friend Alison re-opened her shop on Etsy, complete with a new name. She is so talented! I may have already bought something because I couldn't resist... ;) shop here + use the code WELCOME for 10% off!

Morgan started a new blog this week purely for motivation called Swift Kick in the Rear... I think that's what I need to quit my snacking habit + work out more!

If any of you want to help a girl out... my husband told me I could go ahead & buy this bag if I sell 5 of my ruffled headwraps. 1 down, 4 to go! Plus, as a special thank you, I'll include some extra goodies (for free!) with any headwrap purchase, no code necessary.

have a wonderful weekend, friends!

Ooo... I love your wraps! I just nabbed 2 - one for each of the beautiful girls who are my junior leaders in children's ministry. They are going to love them!
And I love love love that printable too. Maaaaan. I don't to print it out for fear it will encourage my love of dessert... and reduce my positive feelings towards running.
Love, Rachael

Hey girl! I just saw your comment on Kim's blog and thought I'd pop over here and let you know you're not alone. We all get discouraged sometimes over how our sales are going, or how quickly our followers are growing. As long as you're blogging/creating out of love for the art, it will never become work...and people will be attracted to your work and your writing! Even if it's slowly! I know, when I get discouraged, sometimes a break IS good - to reevaluate and get re motivated! Kind of like hitting the "reset" button :-). Keep your chin up! Hard work WILL pay off in the end, and you never know which day will be the day you make a great contact in blogland - someone who will be a huge promoter for your shop, and a good cheerleader along the way. They could be waiting just around the bend!
