Have you had a chance to start working on the Blogmania Scavenger Hunt? My store and clue is very close to the end of the list and you probably haven’t made it that far. I have several listings to look thru which could be discouraging, so for the next 2 days, July 13th and 14th , I’m going to put the Blogmania image in the first 15 listings, after that you are on your own. My clue is "look for the smiley face behind the peel"

Good luck

Tooth Fairy Fix

Now I have a 7 year old daughter. Love her to death, she honestly brings joy to my life, but she kills me sometimes. She lost her first tooth a couple of months ago. Now she waited for this event forever. She has an older brother and had seen him getting money, so she knew what she was coming to her. She played with this tooth all day long, lost it I don't know how many times, and drove me batty. So we wrapped it up in a napkin, put it under her pillow and she had to wait. The tooth fairy must have had a hard time finding something the size of a pea in the middle of the night, because the next morning my daughter found it on the side of her when she woke up. From then on I knew I needed something different for her. My mom saw this idea and made a pillow just for her tooth. She loved it and so did the tooth fairy. It is now a ritual when one of my kids loses a tooth, they know it goes in the pillow and it does not get touched after that. The tooth fairy does not have to hunt in darkness for a tiny little tooth and my daughter has never woken up with her tooth still there again.

Beginning New

This is my first blog entry and I am super excited to begin. I am starting a new business venture and can not wait to see where I can take this. My name is Diane and I live in Seattle, WA.. I have always loved making and designing things and I am now hopefully going to be able to make a living from it. I am married, have four children and four grandkids. I have always created and enjoyed making things for them and 3 years ago when I was diagnosed with breast cancer, I could not continue doing it anymore. I am now in remission and wanted to do something different in my life. I quit my job and started a store on line. Getting sick was never a plan of mine, but it made me think about the important things in life and made me realize that life is to short to do things that don't make you happy. So now I sell the things that I make and surprisingly I am doing well. I have received a lot of great feed back and everybody seems to really enjoy the items in my store. I chose the name It's The Small Things because it fits my attitude towards life these days. With all the stresses of life and constant hassles of the day, every once in a while something as small as a thank you card can make a world of difference. You may think that a little gesture is not worthy of your time, but to somebody else it may mean a good day versus a bad day. You don't have to spend a lot or go bankrupt to put a smile on somebody's face and believe me, a smile is worth a thousand words. In my store I sell lots of different items and am always willing to do something custom for you. I have a full fabric library and would love for you to stop by and see what can make you or somebody you know smile. Remember it's the small things in life that count.
