Another week is coming to a close, it has been a busy week of getting things ready for the new boutique in town, cleaning house in between getting things ready..and the kids have been off for spring break. I don't know about all you, but i am exhausted. I got all my things ready for the boutique..ten hand made tote bags, thirty hand made pairs of earrings, I don't know how many bows and some other nifty little things. I think i will give my sewing machine a couple of days off, my glue gun some well earned cooling down time....then before I know it, it will be time to do it all again. I have sold a little bit of this and a little bit of that, I guess my earrings are a hit and now that Easter is approaching...I am hoping that my bows will fly off the shelf...wishful thinking..Well hope you all have a good weekend

I am displaying my Hand Made items in a local boutique, I am super excited..what to do..what not to do. This is the first time of working with a boutique, so I am a little nervous. I have done craft shows, displayed in other places, but this is a proper boutique and it is so local to where i am..five minute car ride. I will keep you all posted on my boutique journey, day one begins tomorrow.

Did you all know that Walmart lets you stack coupons. I just found out from a friend that she stacked three coupons together for the same product and ended up getting the product for pennies. I have not tried that yet, but I am planning on doing it...so I will let everyone know if it works for me. i am excited to see

Okay ladies, I am going on a couponing mission. I want to get free stuff just like the people in the TLC show "Extreme Couponing". Right now I am teaching myself the lingo, I am exploring different websites like couponmom.com or thekrazycouponlady.com. I am liking what I read about everyone saving money, seems like a great deal of work, but I am willing to give it a try, so i will update you all. First things first, I need to make myself up a binder, they say that works best for organizing your coupons. I have collected coupons from the sunday paper, I have downloaded and printed coupons from on line sites..so here I go, hope my mission is fruitful. I would love to hear from anyone who might have some good tips for me.

Our church is doing a woman's bible study on the book of Esther at the moment. The bible study is being led by Beth Moore. Beth Moore is an excellent speaker, very motivational and inspirational. The way she presents her studies amazes me, she draws you in, captivates you and makes you feel like you are part of Esther's life..truly amazing.
I recommend anyone who has not studied the book of Esther, to study it with Beth Moore as your teacher. We are doing the video serious with her. I am truly in awe of her the gift the Lord has given her to bring His word to His people.
