Craftopolis - an amazing tool for Etsians

I heard about edit express on about a week ago from one of my fellow fPOE members, and I just have to share it with you all! Especially if you have an Etsy shop this is a great Web site that facilitates running your shop and seeing an overall view of your progress.

You simply put in your Etsy shop name, and it'll pull out information from your shop and Google analytics account and give you a day to day and monthly summary. You can also bulk edit listings, instead of having to pull them out one at a time from your Etsy, including changing the price of items, descriptions, and titles.

If you haven't yet, check it out!

Day 69-75/365: Staying on Track

Oh loves, do you ever have those weeks where it's just oh-so-hard to keep on track? Where you just feel like blowing it all away and sitting on your arse and doing absolutely nothing. That's where I was at the start of this week.

I don't think I've ever faltered more during my 365 day photography project. And though I did manage to work on other things I had pending, I have to admit that I really dropped the gun this week to the point where I had to take one of my daily photos when I was already in bed, lights out, using my cell phone. Of course, the photograph of my half-started painting using the flash on my cellphone for light came out anything but spectacularly. But, at least I didn't have to say that I missed a day!

As I continue the journey in my project, I do my best to stay on track. Have methods that you've found useful for these times? Please share.

My Mum

My mom has been the greatest asset in my life. She has guided me, comforted me, made me laugh constantly, raised me with good morals, pushed me to triumph, and loved me above everyone else.

She is the hardest worker I know. And such a truly wonderful mom.

One of the saddest things to me is that when I was a baby my parents didn't own a camera. While my sister has a whole album put together of her earlier years, I have only a handful of images from my first few birthdays.

A few months ago my cousin tagged me in a photo on Facebook. I was so happy to see that it was of me and my mom when I was little. I love this photo so much. One of the handful I have, and will always treasure.

My sister and I spent the day with our mum in San Francisco yesterday. After a day of good food, cheesecake, amazing coffee, and a little shopping, we came home exhausted, but happy at having spent a relaxing day together.

What did you all do for Mother's Day loves?
