Year in Review


Cindy at My Romantic Home is having a Year in Review party. I chose some of my favorite photos from the past year to share. If you want to see more year in review head over to Cindy's blog and check out the links. Lots and lots of eye candy to end the year. (Click on the picture for a better look!)

Just a note to all of you who may have your own cottage industry through etsy or other venues. I was at Kroger today and all their USPS shipping supplies were marked 75% off! I stocked up on tape and things last year at Kroger right after Christmas too, so it might be worth your while to give the supplies a look next time you are there. I am all for keeping my shipping costs as low as possible and passing the savings on to my customers. Also, a big thank you to everyone who has ordered from me this year. Your kindness is so appreciated:>) There are still a few sale items left in etsy, take a look and get them while you can!
