This is the first day of the rest of my (Etsy) life

Miss Cherry Pie Purse, 2008 (available at jenafusion.etsy.com)

I finally took the plunge!! I'm on Etsy!! You can buy my stuff online!! So go and check it out, darn it!!

Wow~ it has been a long road, but I truly put my mind to it, that I would do it and get a little store up and not get distracted. You know those days where you try, try, try, try to get stuff done, even little errands and chores and you can't seem to get even one thing "done". I had one of those days today. BUT, my main goal was to get an Etsy store up, which I did, right before midnight.

One of the major problems is, I'm kinda a perfectionist. I didn't think my pictures are that great, I don't have a nice banner, I don't know how much, how long... blah, blah, blah. Then, I look at other stores and they are a little rough around the edges too. So, I put on my best little red hen hat and got to work. And, I'm fairly happy with the result.

Check it out and let me know what you think. It will be a work in progress, like everything else in life. jenafusion.etsy.com

Green Tip~ Use baking soda to clean with.

Not only is it completely non toxic and safe, it is very inexpensive. It is readily available almost anywhere. It is safe for kids and pets. The scrubbing and neutralizing powers make it an ideal cleaning product.

A GREAT tip from my sister and brother-in-law~ they suggested re-using an old parmesan cheese container, with a removable lid. This makes it a lot easier to shake out for cleaning, especially in a sink or tub. Just remember to take the label off and mark the container. You don't want to dump baking soda on your spaghetti!
