Do you make handmade items and want to start selling at craft shows? - Tweet This!
Are you already starting to sell at craft shows but think you need to up your game?
Well, I have just the thing for you!

So, without further ado, here is my July Show Schedule!
Saturday, July 25, 2015 - 10am-4pm - Au Gres Lioness Annual Arts & Craft Show
North Coast Landscaping Pavilion * 3651 E Huron Rd - U.S. 23, Au Gres, MI 48703
For this show - it is held in conjunction with the Au Gres Cruisers Car Show. I believe there was indoor and outdoor vendors, and my table will be inside.
And as always - if you live close to me, you can always order & pick-up (or meet me somewhere) or order directly on my Etsy shop!
I hope everyone is enjoying the month of June. And don't forget Father's Day is tomorrow!
Until Next Time,

What is YOUR Something Awesome??
Thursday, January 1, 2015
To slowly incorporate more healthy options into our food choices.
Physically - well, its come to a point in my life where I actually should make exercise a habit. Even 10 minutes a day is better than nothing until it just becomes routine.
We have a pretty good thing started in this department now. We just need to keep going and finish getting the rest of the house organized. And really, when everything isn't complete chaos in the house, mental well-being is usually better as well.
Make more items, have more sales, the usual. If I keep building it up every year, when both Elijah & Seth are in school, if I build it up enough before then, I can focus solely on my business, instead of going back to work - whether it be part-time or full-time. (Full-time if I'm making as much as right now, part-time if I'm making more, and none if I'm making a decent income on my own, which is my dream.) In 2014 I did expand my product line to include soy tarts and votive candles. I'll have more on that in a future post.
We only have the life we are living now.. Why not make the best of it?

What are your resolutions for 2015?
Thursday, March 27, 2014
So, as you all may have seen, nothing has been posted for a long time.
I apologize to all my readers for this.
This is the story in short. Elijah was born December 2012. Things were going well with Seth, Elijah, and myself at home. Then I decided I was going to go back to school to obtain a degree in accounting. I started classes in Fall of 2013. I also was looking for something else to get out of the house a bit since all of my classes were online. I decided to become an Independent Consultant for The Pampered Chef in October 2013. That has actually been really fun and I've met a lot of great people doing it!
Well, what I didn't expect was to overwhelm myself with too much and then feel like I didn't have enough time to dedicate to my kids, which is the whole reason I'm a stay-at-home mom. So I decided to focus on the kids more, school, and then The Pampered Chef, this putting my Blog and Etsy on the back burners for a bit.
My classes end towards the end of April, and if I go back this Fall I might possibly just go back part-time for a bit until both kids are in school. But when my classes end I'm hoping to plan out some great posts and get back into blogging and get my Etsy shop looking all spiffy again! :-)
So stay tuned, give me just a bit longer, and Own Something Awesome will be back up and running!!
I would love to hear what you'd like to read about! Feel free to comment or send me an email at ownsomethingawesome[at]gmail.com !
I'm thinking some Motivational Monday' s, Tasty Tuesday's, possibly bring back Feature Friday's or making that Fun Day Friday and doing a Star Seller Saturday!
Let me know if this sounds good to you! :) can't wait to be back at it! I've missed it.
