HAve you marked your calendar? May 1st is this coming Saturday, and its my grand opening! Ive started putting previews up already. i cant contain myself. i put up some new items, exclusive one of a kind items, and a few collabs. i have a few more items to put up through out the week. Theres more collabs, some Auctions and drawings as well. So far everything is going smoothly, except for the butterflies in my tummy! You would think, having been a wahm for over 2 yrs now, that i would be used to stockings and the hype. But this is my first adventure out on my own, with out the support of a congo. I know ill have friends there to support me, but its the fresh faces im nervous about! I try to be original and new, and i hope everyone gets to see that. I pray that this gets me the exposure ive been craving, and maybe some new opportunities!! Anyway, wish me luck!

Switch to Unpaper! My family made the switch a few months ago. I decided to cut up my husbands old Tshirts and serge two layers together to make decent sized towels for cleanups. I use these towels in the kitchen, for everything, and i keep some in the bathroom for clean ups in there as well. By doing this i have saved money, saved waste in our landfills, and maybe a tree or two.
Switch to cloth pads! I have not made this switch yet, but its spreading like wildfire amoung many of my peers. There are many wahms out there now that sew cloth menstral pads out of natural fibers that are gorgeous! Ive seen pads made into works of art using designer fabrics, and soft fabrics. a few whams i would recommend are
Switch to cloth lunch baggies! Your childs lunch can be fun and fashionable, as well as cutting back on the amount of plastic we put into our landfills. Sandwich sized baggies are sewn from designer fabrics, and are reusable everyday! you can get them made in prints that your child will love, and theyre not that expensive! a few whams i would recommend are
Use cloth diapers & wipes! Obviously im a huge advocate on cloth diapers. i made the switch with my daughter and never turned back. this alone has saved me hundreds of dollars. If you choose to line dry the diapers, thats even better! you save energy costs! No more spending $40 for a box of diapers that lasts 2 or 3 months. Starting up with cloth does cost money, but you can turn around and resell the diapers later, getting back about half of what you paid. You can also use cloth wipes, which are easy to make yourself ( same as my unpaper towels). Options for cloth diapering are endless, but heres a few of my favs
These are just a few things i can think of off hand. As always i try to support handmade, and my fellow stay at home moms. But our planet comes first! changing just the little things makes a difference. take shorter showers, car pool, use greener cleaning products.. im sure youve heard them all. So why not try going green, and supporting handmade at the same time?

Im in the process of opening my own HC! its about time, i know..lol I got used to the comfort of being on congos. the family atmosphere really helps you get into a niche and not want out! But i want to get bigger and better, and the way to do that is to go out on my own... leave the nest..lol.. so i have my graphics being designed as we speak. Nancy, of Calico Rose, is working on something fantastic! Shes really captured the look i want for the new store, and is doing banners etc, to match.. so keep an eye open for the grand opening stocking of that. i will announce it here and on facebook, and probebly anywhere else i can think of!
ive been doing a little sewing as well. I made a few peasant tops and listed them on A la Mode congo, they sold out. so im listing more this week, on the 18th! i love making them, and its a great way to use up some fabric.
so much to do!
