This week I find myself concerned primarily with the letter 's'.
Over the weekend due to some investigative work, I have discovered a possible reason for the 'non-sale' of our house. I thought it was just on the flyers, but it is actually documented online and on the MLS (multiple listing service) that we live on BAKERS Ave. Indeed we live on BAKER Ave...no 's'.
Seems like a simple typo unless you are searching for homes on BAKER, or click on the "map" to our house and you find that BAKERS is some random street in the country of Northern Minnesota. We live in Southern Minnesota and in a city.
I should have acted sooner on my hunch that something wasn't right, but when you hire someone to do a job, you have to assume they are doing their best for you. Today, because our house has not 's'old, I may be 's'earching for a new realtor.
The letter 's' also stands for 's'ister. Having spent many years wishing to have one, I forgot that I am one. To my 2 brothers, I am a sister. I didn't realize this until a few years ago in a lovely town called Grand Marais, Minnesota, where my brother bought me a sweet house warming gift with a 's'ister verse on it.
It could have been a piece of trash with the word 's'ister on it, but it was an adorable candle with a copper top on it; just my style. Well, my most favorite thing was 's'mashed by my 's'on just yesterday. I tried not to get angry, but for crying out loud, I have 's'acrificed everything else for this child and now even my personal possessions (5ft off the ground) are not 's'afe.
Well, it's only Wednesday, but I fear what 's' words are to come this week. Hopefully one will stand for 's'ales in my Etsy shop. Perhaps a 's'hower would be nice...I would even accept 5 minutes of 's'ilence.
Right now, the only 's' word that comes to mind is 's'hit...and unfortunately it's still early.
Tomorrow afternoon, I will be holding a lecture in the Etsy Virtual Labs!!! It's called "Promo Mojo" and I will be talking on effective ways to advertise your homemade goods during the holiday season! I hope to have you all join me. If all goes according to plan, I will be LIVE on web cam!
Lecture is at 4pm EST
'S' also stands for 's'crap packs. I am parting with some of my beautiful antique lace and have packaged it adorably around 's'tudio cards.
See my shop for all the antique lace you could want!
NEW - I'm searchable!
