Sassy Sisters in Review

7 May
It is time to take another journey through the Sassy Sisters in Sales group to find more great and/or unique items.  Or to at least point out some of the talent in our group!

Bridget of  Japip has such a wide variety of fun it was hard to choose just one item to review, but I have a passion for birds so let’s look at this cute set of coasters.

Great to keep on hand for a hostess gift!

Cara of Discovery Toys has many unique and educational items for our precious little ones (they are our future) so let’s talk teething.



Helps baby learn and grow on the go.

Christina of Mommy’s Sunshine Designs  has all kinds of adorable goodies for your little sunshine!

"Let's Get Physical, Physical!"

Rita of And More Bags has become an icon in the green movement with her reusable snack bags.  She sold out at the last craft fair, but not to worry, she has since restocked!  I love them!  They make awesome gifts.

Stop using plastic bags! Try these.

Teri of The Beaded Branch not only makes gorgeous jewelry and bags, but she is an author of a tutorial for her coveted Past Present Treasures!

Learn to make this lovely pendant yourself!

We have so many new and talents sisters that it is truly a joy to wander through their items in search of fun things to present to you.  I’ll be back with more.  Make sure you have your info in the database so I can find you!!

Blog visibility

27 Apr

I came across a blog, Moms wear your Tees, she was reviewing a blog tool to give your blog more visibility.

Blog Buzzer is a FREE easy to use tool that helps authors of blogs get their work noticed. Most blog entries are found by other internet users through search engines and blog related directories, Blog Buzzer will automatically send your blog to these directories and search engines for you. BlogBuzzer  pings your blog for FREE, for those on a restricted marketing budget, this is great.  All you need to do, go to BlogBuzzer.com and put in your blog name and address.  It is that simple!

They also have a premium account which will automatically update your ping status.  The premium account was only $9.00 for a year.  I thought this was a great price , so I signed up .  I am hoping this investment will pay off to make my blog more visible.

Hope this is helpful to getting your blog to be more visible.  Here are some more free tips for getting your blogs noticed.

Spring Organizing

20 Apr

It’s spring let’s get to organizing and clearing our workspaces and homes.  Question is where do we start? 

Organizing is more than just an act of clearing your space, it also declutters your mind.  I don’t know about you but I seem to get really annoyed , and overwhelmed around clutter.  I start by getting mad at the clutter, then mad that I can’t work effectively because of the clutter, then mad at myself for causing the clutter and needless to say it is a vicious circle of blame and annoyance. 

Here are some tips to decluttering, organizing and getting back some level of sanity from HGTV: 

1. Invest in adequate furniture.
 Make sure your office furniture provides ample space for work and storage.2. Establish activity centers.
The efficient office should be zoned into activity areas:

  • The Work Center, which includes a clear workspace, the computer and frequently used office products.  
  • The Reference Center, which includes binders, manuals, dictionary and professional books and materials.  
  • The Supply Center, which contains office and paper supplies.

  

3. Properly place the hardware and peripherals. 

  • Position your equipment by frequency of use. If the printer is used daily, it should be within easy reach. If the CPU is only accessed for troubleshooting, it can be placed under or next to the desk. If a scanner is rarely used, it can be placed outside the work area.  
  • When setting up hardware, be conscious of access to drives, trays and cords. Don’t block access to drawers or take up leg room with tangled

Sassy Sisters in Review

31 Mar

The Sassy Sisters in Sales has grown so much that I do not think everyone is aware of the goodies we have available to us.  Let’s see what I can find.

Amanda Shepard of B’s Purses allows you to design your own purse!  Look what I made:

Arlene Holtz of Spirit Essence Art has original artwork!  Check this out:

Brenda Chesney of Purely Natural Minerals features any kind of mineral face care you may desire, but I found Glitter!!  We all need to sparkle now and then.

Marie Davies of Faery Charming offers a wide array of jewelry, I loved this pair of earrings: 

Morika of Under the New Moon has a plethora of goodies in her shop.  So much fun to browse through, but I found one of my favorite items.  I use this almost every day!  A Celestial Tea strainer with moons and stars!
Well, sisters, this is just a brief review.  I will be adding more later, but in the meantime make sure you update the “Group Business” database in Yahoo so I can find you and show some of your awesome wares!!
