"I'm still shocked that a year has come up on me this fast. Seems like yesterday, and really, my shop has changed COMPLETELY since I opened it. It started out as a childrens clothing shop.

I'm celebrating this year by giving away a free gift with every purchase!!
As far as marketing, I'm still learning. I haven't found any kind of sale, be it free shipping, coupons, or a percentage off that helps. People just seem to buy when they're ready to.

Heather is such a friendly and helpful person, it is no wonder that she is doing so well with her cozy shop. She is an avid supporter for Relay for Life, and this spurred a conversation we had about quiltmaking.
"The first quilt I made was for the Relay for Life that we do every year. I embroidered different color ribbons and on the inside of each, I embroidered the theme, date and amount of money that was raised for that year. That part in itself was a pain in the a$$, but then it was a kit, and all of the blocks were different sizes and had to be fit together to make the right size blocks...It was auctioned off and raised $200.00. I was amazed!
