clearing my mind

Clearing my mind....

-Not all the time is it easy to stay TRUE to yourself when you have your own business. You didn't make it this far if you wasn't true to yourself. Being true to yourself, ideas, your thoughts is what makes you.

-Being creative isn't easy, its a gift that come naturally to people, me being one of them. But some times you have a block.. a creative block... you can see what it is but it just doesn't transcribe well on paper, in software, nothing. I tell ya I'm working on a logo for someone.. and in the process of making that one i came up with two other ones because it looked better for that then what i was working on. go figure..

-Sometimes we all need help, were just to proud to ask for it. Weather its with a job, moving, spiritually, physically, financially, just ask. The worst thing they can say is no. but most of the time people are willing to help if its for a good cause.

-Cutting back sucks. With the prices of gas going up to $4 a gallon, basic necessity's going up, where can we cut back some more. no eating out, don't do much of that, don't go anywhere-- cant no gas, turning off the house phone-- need it to have the Internet--wohoo blah... cant cut insurance, buy in bulk cant all the time only have enough for one not the 5 pack. uhhh... i know I'm not the only one going through this and we really shouldn't have to cut out things just to afford 5 gallons of gas -$20 bucks worth of gas... I miss the days of $.89 , or even $2.50 for that matter...

-Whats for dinner... Oh i don't know. Today sounds like a good day for a 30min or less meal. Maybe shrimp with pasta, and salad, or grilled blacked chicken and rice and beans... hmmm the choices.

What is a true friends...

What is a true friends....

A true friends are there for you in good time and in bad. To listen to problems of each other. They are the ones that tell you " ehhh... that looks tacky" and you dont get mad. True friends are there for you when you need it. True Friends are there to comfort you when you need smile, drink a bottle of wine, or eating a gallon of fudge ripple ice cream or yummy hd- vanilla swiss almond.. yummy... True friends are are more then friends they become your family, they are your sisters, or brothers, your friends.

Expo Update...

Thank you for all the prayers and positive thoughts for me for the woman's expo. I have to say thank you to everyone who helped me get there. I couldn't have done it with out you guys. So Friday I went saw the booth and I was in front of Macy's door. I started slow because the mall was slow. but I did get some prospects that day had people sign up for news letters, took guess at the jelly beans, made sure they had my cards read for when they need it in a couple of mths. baby town I tell ya. I had one lady come up to me older lady wish she had someone to give it to because she loved the product and was proud of me for doing it and being young. she even got on the phone and called some grand mama's at the church and started a prayer chain and took some post cards and business cards to take to them. I did get info for future orders, was asked if I wanted to do a kiosk at the mall, do a on base show that they having on Thursday. Saturday was a better day. I did a donation for the silent auction, and I didn't get it back so it WOHOO... and walked around talk to other business people... getting my name out just like they are. Gave away over 100 bags, over 200 business cards, and TALKED TALKED TALKED... not to mention I sold 2 cakes, and have custom orders one for announcement and one for a logo package( both were from vendors that I talked too). and met some really nice ladies. Talk to a couple of ladies that want to do something for baby shower- new baby gifts for troops families . so im working on a package for them. Over all it was a great experience, and would do it again... as long as I had the $$ to do it.
