More Sales

Just when I think no one is going to buy my fobs and there is no need for me to make more, bingo! I received an order today for two that are on my web site. Then a friend placed an order for six new ones. Maybe the word is getting out! Hope so.

A lot has happened since I last posted. My sweet dog, Muffin, who had been sick for a month had surgery and lived for a day and a half before leaving us. My heart has been broken even as I'm writing this. She was the love of our lives and we weren't ready to say goodbye. I miss her so much. But on a brighter note, we have "Little Man" to give double love to.

On an even brighter note, I made my second sale in my scissor fob business, Fabulous Fobs. That was a pick me up.

More good news. My son is signing a contract on a garden home this afternoon. Hopefully, he will be moving the middle of November. Then our daughter is going to move in with him. Things are working out good for all concerned. Pitootie on the person that tried to sabotage the move.

I Made My First Sale

I mentioned in a previous post and in my profile that I have been trying to set up a small home business making and selling beaded scissor fobs. My 26 year old son met my husband and I in Michael's one night to get something from us. He half joking and half serious told me that at some point I had to start selling them. Well, today I was able to call him at work and say, "Guess what, I made my first sale. " He was happy for me and I'm very excited. If you would like to look at the fobs, here's a new link.

Thanks for looking.

I Have Had My Hands Full

My sick little dog has had many ups and downs. We're going back to the Internal Medicine Vet this evening for him to repeat the ultrasound and decide on her treatment.

There are days I don't have enough hands, arms, or feet to take care of her and keep the one year old bouncy little brother puppy out of trouble. We will get through this soon, we hope!

I have cross stitched a tiny bit and have not had time to make any scissor fobs lately. As she improves, I will be able to get back at it. I did, however, take my kitchen wallpaper down. I'm now trying to decide on a paint color. We will live with different colored splotches on the walls for a few days to determine which one we like.

Better or Not?

Is Muffin better or not? I think I've given up trying to decide. She seems to feel better but she still will not eat. Our next thing to try is the chicken sticks in the Gerber baby food. Cross your fingers that this works. She certainly doesn't like her new dog food.

Other than taking care of dogs, I really haven't done anything noteworthy. My website that I have set up for my fobs will be changing. Google has made some changes and they appear to be for the better. Just means a little more work to have everything set up.

Till next time,

Just When You Think Things Are Better....

I mentioned in my last entry that our 11 year old Shih Tzu had been very sick. We saw major improvement beginning Friday. She seemed to be on the road to recovery. She graduated from IV fluids to very small amounts of chicken and rice. Everything was going great until about 1:30 today. It's like we have taken two steps back. She's back to no food and water for the rest of today.
