Outdoor skating

I have some new listings...check them out at my store...  Lexiekinprints.etsy.com 

And I just had to share.  Today was our first time taking our little girl skating.  She is 2 1/2.  So much fun! Even if it was just for a little bit. 
Its an outdoor rink, over looking a small body of water.  This was our first time here.  We will be back for sure.
We used bob skates ( 2 blades that strap onto her boot) for her to start.  It was good, because she had more fun being able to stand on her own.  But we think we are going to get regular skates for her, for next time and she how she makes out.  Many more falls I am sure.  All a part of the learning curve. 

Store Supplies

One direction I'd like to expand on in my store is supplies for other etsy and other online stores.

As of right now I have just a few listings, but if I get some positive feedback I will continue on this track.

I can add logos or your own pictures to various items.  Just send me a message if your interested. 

Here are some custom listings.... they can be found here 

This is currently listed for a 2x2 sticker, but the size can easily be changed for your needs

This is a sample of a gift certificate, but I can work with you to do something custom for your store

Goals for 2012

For my business, these are my goals for 2012

1.  Manage my "etsy and promotional time" better
  • My plan - use some new charts I made up to help keep organized with PFteam events
  • Take scheduled days off from PFTeam threads, and longer breaks if I just need some more me/home time.
2.  Make facebook page
  • Check - done.  Come on over...I need fans!  facebook

3. Back up all of my computer files.
  • This should be number 1, but I know me, it won't happen right away.

4. Have 80 items in my shop by the end of the year
  • Make various types, try to plan ahead for upcoming holidays.

5.   Have 40 Sales
  • Last year I had 12 sales, so this is asking a lot I know, so I won't be overly dissapointed if I don't reach that number

6.  Complete my website
  • I haven't done anything with it really.
  • I forgot about it, and it automatically renewed by mistake...ughh...so since it cost nearly $100, I better make the most out of it.  
  • If after this year it is not useful, I will likely cancel it.  Its here... http://www.lexiekinprints.com/ and needs lots of work, I shouldn't even post the link, but maybe it will get me working on it so I'm not embarassed by it anymore.  

Happy New year!
