Start of Spring Break

As of 11:15am my kids will be on spring break till they go back to school on April 8th.  We aren't going any where during their break.  But I figured we can do some things around town.  

On Monday I'm planning on taking them to Six flags.  They don't know it yet, it'll be a surprise.  I will be taking the older 2 while hubby stays home with the younger one.  Hubby isn't a very big amusement park fan and with the little one limited to little areas, it wouldn't be fun for the older 2 to be limited as well.   We are going to go with a friend of mine and her 2 boys as well.  So should be a fun day!!  Just hope the weather cooperates and stays nice like its supposed to be.  The rest of the week is supposed to be rainy and gloomy.  

Then on Friday, hubby is taking my middle son to a braves game.  He will be meeting up with his dad and sister.  Me nor the older one don't like baseball so we decided not to go.  I know the little one will be restless and wouldn't stay still to watch it.  So we might go do something while they are at the game.

Etsy Fail

A while back, you may have read that I was opening an Etsy store selling my homemade hair bows and other items.  I've ventured out from that adding in Ribbon trees and my latest creations is Sashay Scarves.

All of my scarves are $20 each. 

Nothing on Etsy was selling.  Since I opened it up in Oct, I haven't had 1 sale!  Very Frustrating!!  I was talking with a friend of mine and she gave me some tips to boost my sales.  So I spent all day yesterday revamping my listings.  I even splurged and did an Search Ad.  Its only $7 so I'm hoping it works.  

I checked it today and I don't have any viewings today as of 11 am.  I only had 22 views yesterday.  So right now its not looking any better!

I'm just frustrated at this whole thing!  I just wanted to make some extra money.  I know I'm not going to be getting rich off of these but every little bit counts.    I taught a friend of mine how to make these and she's already sold 10 of them!!

I need to find some local craft show and put my stuff in it.  But again, the last couple of vendor shows I went to, I didn't make anything.  

Just ignore this rambling post - having a pity party for myself.
