Gathering & Selling Pecans, Earrings On Consignment, and My New Online Store!

Sunday, December 04, 2011

I have REALLY been a no-show on SparkPeople for so long that I hardly know how to log on! ;-) I have really missed all of you--my SparkFriends!

My family has been busy gathering and selling pecans lately. It has been worth it, too. My husband has a customer who is a pecan grower and buyer. Because my husband has been very fair with this man, he gave us $2.00 a pound while he was giving others $1.50. And he weighed our pecans in our buckets, rather than putting then in the cloth bags that he usually uses. Wasn't that sweet of him? And a such blessing to us!

At the same time, I have been working on 2 other ventures.

I am making earrings to sell at one of our local high schools. The school has a store that is starting to branch out and I have been informed that some of my earrings in school colors will probably sell like hotcakes! It all started with the festival where I had a booth in the fall. A teacher from this school was there with some of her students. She showed her students a pair of my earrings that were close to the school's colors. One of the girls bought a pair, wore them to school the following Monday, and is getting LOTS of compliments and inquiries about them. SO I am getting earrings made, finding a way to display them, and making new cards just for the school. I hope to have my first batch ready by Tuesday. Any prayers on my behalf will be appreciated! The school's mascot is a viking, so I plan to call these earrings "Viking Girl". Instead of giving each a female name as I have done in the past, I will call them "Viking Girl 1", Viking Girl 2" etc. I hope this will appeal to high school girls! (It's been a while since I have been high school!)

And I have also been working on my online store, which is finally up and running! Right now I just have earrings on it, but eventually, I plan to post my small silk flower arrangements, my hand-made decorated grapevine wreaths, and my silk corsages and boutonnieres.

Thanks for taking the time to read this blog, my friends. I appreciate you!

I am looking forward to Christmas, and now I can start enjoying this very special and blessed season. Blessings to each of you, my sisters, my dear ones on SP!

    It was so nice to read your blog!
    How nice and exciting that your website is up and running. I am going to go and check it out - we just got a our computer problem fixed!
    I can imagine that your earrings will sell well at the school.

    Do you grow pecans to sell? That sounds so interesting. I hear Georgia pecans are wonderful.

    You will be in my prayers...that all goes well with your new store and site!

    Christmas Blessings to you and your family!
