New dog

My husband, who is a sheriffs deputy, had arrested a guy who was involved in a crash and the guy kept talking about his dog in the truck and no one could find it. Finally, the dog was found and apparently had to be taken to the city shelter, since the man was going to jail. He was eventually placed for adoption but no one adopted him and another officer had his name put down to contact before euthanasia would be preformed. My husband called and asked if we could take it because it was fixing to be put to sleep, so being the softy I am, said yes. My six year old loves him. Named him Cosmo. He is a miniature cocker spaniel. We have another dog ( a wennie dog) and so far so good.
Isn't he cute! How could no one have wanted him.

Super MArio Bead Art!

My 6 year old is MASTER of Wii Mario Galaxy and is in absolute love with anything Mario and wants his room decorated with Mario. You know it's hard to find things to decorate with Mario! We purchased some of those fusing beads that you can decorate with and then iron them together and we made these Mario characters. They turned out SO CUTE! I told him if he wanted to sell them on Etsy we could put them on there and he said NO! These are going in my room...but if anyone wants to make a custom order, I plan on putting them on Etsy. Here they are:

Vintage Greeting Cards

I've collected vintage greeting cards for a long time with special emphasis on valentines days cards. While at an estate sale this weekend, I stumbled upon a treasure chest of 60s and 70s greeting cards. I remembered some of them from my childhood. Suzy's Zoo was so popular and I think still is. It was wonderful to find them. I'm keeping many but I'm passing along many that had duplicates. Here are a few I've already placed either on Ebay or Etsy, but I'm listing them on Etsy under my Superimposium store.

An Etsy Study ~ Best Days to Sell

I've done a study the last couple of months and I thought I'd add May 2008. Here is the article below:

"I've seen questions being asked on the forums to which are the most prosperous days on Etsy, and I decided to conduct my own study of my busiest days. I joined Etsy Dec. 7, 2007, so I did not include Dec. 2007 into this study. I've had a total of 241 sales to date, with 15 being in Dec. For the months of Jan., Feb., and March, the total sales were 226 and I broke them down to the days items were sold and here is what I came up with.
Mondays= 12 sales
Tuesday= 9 sales
Wednesday = 18 sales
Thursday = 20 sales
Friday = 18 sales
Saturday = 21 sales
Sunday = 15 sales

Some of the above were multiple sales to the same person, but I just included them as one sale. "

Today, I will add to the above totals to include April 2008: I had 40 sales in April, added to the 226 from Jan. Feb. & march = Grand Total: 266
and I broke them down to the days items were sold and here is what I came up with.
Mondays= 21 sales
Tuesday= 16 sales
Wednesday = 25 sales
Thursday = 25 sales
Friday = 21 sales
Saturday = 29 sales
Sunday = 16 sales

Saturday is still my best days to sell with Thursday close behind.

June 1: My sales in May 2008 were 35 added to 266 makes the grand total: 301, with new dialy totals as follows:
Mondays = 24 sales
Tuesday = 21 sales
Wednesday = 32 sales
Thursdays = 32 sales
Fridays = 24 sales
Saturdays = 34 sales
Sundays = 21 sales

Saturday is still my best days to sell with Wed/Thurs close behind.
