Just listed some bottle brush trees on

Hi Everyone!!
I just got some items listed on Etsy tonight.  I had several bottle brush trees, jar snowmen, and other items left so I decided to try Etsy.  I hope it isn't too late in the shopping season to sell anything, but that was my choice to wait for my two shows to finish.  It always takes longer to list things than I think it will take.  I'm definitely a newbie to Etsy as far as actually posting items!!  I will be putting more on in the next couple of days, then call it good.  I have too much to do to take too much time playing with my crafts! LOL!

My hubby left this afternoon to get settled before his new job starts tomorrow.  I HATE goodbyes~I know that I will see him most weekends, but it will be crazy until all is ready for the house to be listed.  Waking up to lots of snow didn't make me feel any better either!  
Here's our snow covered Sophie this morning!
 I have packing, painting, purging, and primping to do.  I staged the home we sold previously and it sold within 6 weeks; in a sluggish market, in a small town.  So I am anxious to see what happens this time.  I love the process after the clutter is gone, painting & blemishes fixed, and the house is sparkling and clean...then the fun begins!  Getting every room to look polished with special touches that make someone imagine them living in this home; that is what I am looking forward to.  Then, of course, a family wanting to buy the house.  I have already been praying for God to prepare that family to discover our home and make it their home.  I can't explain how ~at peace~ I feel about this.  It is only by the grace of God that I have the peace that our home will sell quickly and smoothly.  It will take a lot of work, but be so worth it.  Now I just need the energy and a little sleep wouldn't be bad either!!

I will keep you posted on my progress.  May your week be full of expectations fulfilled!!  I would love that too!!

Good luck in the sale of your house. Sorry that you have to spend some time apart from your hubby. I know how that goes.

The snow is beautiful and Sophie is so cute!We have a Corgie and a Cockapoo. They love the snow.

Wish I would have seen your bottle brush trees a week ago. I have been searching all over for some. Do you know that I found a few in the booth right next to mine, yesterday? Seriously, I'm so blind sometimes. Yours are gorgeous!

Have fun with the Etsy account. I might give it a go someday, too.

Take care,
xx Michelle
