Branding Your Etsy Shop with Avery Labels: Giveaway!

This giveaway is closed!  Congratulations to the winner!

When I posted my popular cash envelope template post in January 2010, I hadn’t even considered how far it would take me.  I was simply sharing a little template to make budgeting easier for those of us who had discovered the benefits of quitting the credit card habit.  However, once the post went viral, the requests to purchase pre-made sets started pouring in.  I was astounded at the number of requests and started thinking about the possibility of opening up an Etsy shop …

How To Add The Pinterest Pin It Button to a Blog Post

I admit that I am completely in love with Pinterest.  I could go on and on explaining what Pinterest is, but it’s been done.  Instead, let me sum up: It is like a giant online cork board that you can pin great articles, cool pictures and fabulous ideas to without having to tear a page out of a magazine.  When you see something that you like online, you “Pin it” to your Pinterest Style Board so you can come back to it again or share it with a friend.  So …

Laminated Cash Envelopes!

I’m so excited about the new service that I am offering in my Etsy shop! I bought a laminator (on Amazon with Swagbucks!!), so I have been laminating my little heart out.  So much fun!  The laminated cash envelopes turn out so nice, and I’m so proud of their sturdiness.
Last night I laminated two sets of cash envelopes that I sold yesterday, and I was SO impressed at how they turned out that I just HAD to show you.

This particular paper is already very thick and sturdy, but by …

I Love Etsy and Mom-Preneurs!

I’ve been wanting to write up a little post about how my brand new Etsy shop is doing, but it is doing SO WELL that I can’t seem to keep my envelope sets in there to show you all! Crazy!  Good crazy, of course.  Makes me wonder if I should have done this a long time ago!
For those of you who are new to online commerce, Etsy is “the place to buy and sell all things handmade”.  It is an incredible source of inspiration, filled with unique, personalized and handmade …
