Featured Etsy artists and more tidbits

I find today in these uncertain times that it can be easy to get discouraged. Trying to build a business and not hitting the jackpot immediately with sales I was thinking that I should just give up. It wasn't until I had a conversation with Trevor about Mario Galaxy and the Wii that I realized just how silly I was being.

He couldn't figure out a level he was playing and he was getting very angry and frustrated. He asked why did they have to make it so hard. My response was "well life wouldn't be any fun if everything came easy to us, we all need a challenge to help us grow".

Ok so I don't think the lightbulb could have been any bigger in my own head. Not sure that Trevor got it, he's still mad, but I certainly realized that I just have to keep plugging away and take on this challenge and that hopefully one day my dreams will be realized.
Also be sure to check out this group, it is a great group of women in business that help with ideas and encouragement.

Anyway on to something more fun:

I have found poking around Etsy some wonderful artists and I would like to take Sundays to showcase some of their wonderful work. So be sure to check these sellers out, wonderful items perfect for anyday but especially with Christmas around the corner.....

Beautiful handbags, the colors and designs are exquisite and it would be hard for someone not to find one they liked.

For me these are my favorites:

Creamy Dreamy Butterflies Sling Tote Bag








Coriander Swirls Zippered Tote Bag












My other Etsy find for this weekend, left me hungry. Even though these candles cannot be eaten, they can definitely leave you drooling :)
