Goodies in the mail!

Hi Everyone!

It seems like I haven't posted in forever! Been mega busy but Ill get to that later.
First I want to show what came in the mail for my yesterday!

A few weeks back I purchased a pattern from Alice of Wilmas Wimzees, she emailed to let me know I had been entered in the Trinkets 2 Treasures giveaway, so I quick jumped over to their blog to see what the giveaway was all about!
There was a TON of goodies!!

I never thought I would win so I forgot all about it until last week!
Bette from Bette's Tomorrows Treasures emailed to let me know I WAS THE WINNER!
OMGOSH, I was so excited!!!
I could hardly stand it but waited as patient as I could for my basket of goodies to arrive!

This is a list of my goodies that was included:)

Ewe N Me Printables -- CD collection of printable tags, bookmarks and printable tags

Wilmas Wimzees -- Shabby n Chic bowl fillers

-- Bunny and Chenille Egg

Snugglebug Blessins -- Primitive Mouse

The End Peace -- Charm Bracelet

Folk Art From The Heart -- $20 Gift Certificate

Tomorrows Treasures - Basket and Eggs

Bead and Knit
-- Fingerless Gloves

Silicone Bulb Shoppe -- Easter Silicone Bulbs

Sassy Soaps N Such -- Bunny Bowl Fillers

AuntieB56 -- Framed Needle Punch Bunny Picture

Mamaws Creations -- Bunny In A Carrot

Print and Sew
-- Americana Feedsack Bag

WOW, right?!! I'm STILL drooling over my goodies!

Kindle snatched up my charm bracelet and gloves before I could snap a pic so Ill get those later. Make sure you check out these lovely, very talented ladies etsy shops!

Onto some other good news, I am officially Yankee Ridge Primitives, registered with the state of NY! I have my business license!!! This was a BIG BIG step for me as I wasn't sure which way my crafting was going to go. I have been selling a few things wholesale and have decided to stop doing that after I finish up this last order and rent a booth at a local shop full time! Wholesale just isn't making me any money and I put ALOT of time and love into my prims. Its one of those things that when someone likes your work and asks if you wholesale they try to get the cheapest price out of you. They really don't understand the cost of supplies and the work that goes into each item! So NO MORE wholesale for me:)


I also want to let you all know I DO visit you daily, I just don't have the time to comment right now! Between getting Bella dressed and ready for school, my daily household duties, taking care of Domonic and crafting which seems like I do ALL day long, there is just no time right now!

As soon as I finish up this last order I should have some free time!

Have a great weekend and a great Easter - don't think I'll make it back before then!

Good to see you back and that you might have more free time in the near future:)
