Stuck in the sun

Well, I have not been very productive in my shop the last month or so. I have worked on some changes to my shops look but I have not yet spruced it up for fall and the upcoming holiday season. :) I have been out in the sun playing. We don't have much of a summer here in the greater Seattle area and we have to enjoy it while we can.

My garden is doing great though. I planted a rosemary hedge and it's grown considerably. I hope it makes it through the winter. The last 2 attempts have failed. I am prepared with covers for the plants this year though. The rosemary are blooming and smell so pretty.

My butterfly bush that I thought I had killed by moving it has grown to over 6ft tall. The only color that survived was white. I am a little sad about that.

My veggies and my herbs are doing great! I am pretty happy about that, as the last 2 years were kinda a bust. I have gotten ripe tomatoes this year! They are SO good. Here are some pictures of my garden.

the weather seems to be changing, so hopefully I will get back to my shop. :) I have alot of work to do. LOL

A Snarky Comment

I had my 300 facebook fan giveaway over this past weekend. I used a google document that I have seen others use. I actually really liked doing it this way. Everything was in one place and it was so much easier!

Apparently, someones computer software wouldn't allow her to access my sign up sheet. She left a comment about it. I wasn't sure what to say to that. I have NO clue how to make McAfee allow her to access my sign up. I tried to leave a nice comment to let her know I heard her and all that. When the contest had ended she left a snarky comment saying it was time to unlike my page. OK fine. Over a giveaway??? Really??? She also said "good luck with "potential" customers" I must be really slow and dim because I have no idea what she is implying by putting potential in quotes.

My reaction to her was to ignore it and delete her comment. I wasn't sure if I should validate her by trying to unruffle her feathers, as I had no prior contact with her.

Hopefully, it was the right/best thing to do.

Mid Summer

We are finally getting some sun here in the great NW. Makes it hard to focus on promoting my candy! I was fortunate enough to have the opportunity to finally do some favors for a baby shower.

I also did some different shaped favors for an out of staate shop who is selling my candies!

I will be adding these items to my shop soon. They were alot of fun to do. I liked being creative with the baby shower favors. I can't wait for the feedback to see how they liked them!

One of the other marshmallow shops listed watermelon marshmallows that I had been thinking about doing. I was a little bummed. They are super cute! I am a little jealous I didn't do it first. :)

Off to finish dinner and take care of the little one. :)
