I created an online store

I’ve wanted to sell handmade items since I was a little girl and listened to my mom tell me all of her product ideas. She never had the opportunity to pursue those ideas because of taking care of her mom and then her own health failed. I may not want to make some of the things (or feel creative enough haha) that she had in mind. I have discovered a love for loom knitting. I’ve cross stitched since I was a young kid, maybe 8? So to me this is just expanding my repertoire. It’s also a good income opportunity. So I decided to try my hand at opening an online store. A year ago (maybe more since its a new year!) a friend and I created an Etsy store. We never listed anything but it was more that life got in the way. Then Etsy banned pagan blessed items, items with spells, etc. They did not ban items that were prayed over. To me this is religious discrimination so I sent them an email explaining I couldn’t buy or sell from there with that policy. Then I deleted my account. I’ve looked occasionally for a website to use that is OK with blessed items etc. Recently we’ve been struggling with a few bad paychecks, the nature of cable installation in bad weather, and I decided to list the items I had for sell. Granted right now it’s only two scarves, but it’s a big step. So backstory complete, I found StorEnvy.com. No listing fees and they only take commission. Website is free too and easy to set up. I like it so that is the avenue I chose. If you’d like to see what I have, which right now is just scarves but I plan to have things like toddler altar tools (pagan), then feel free to visit.

My first Voxbox from Influenster

image

I’m new to Influenster and this is my first voxbox. This is the My First Tervis voxbox. I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes.
I received this yesterday. This was perfect timing because my son’s let cup was leaking so badly I was going to go buy a different cup from the store that evening.
First, I love receiving packages. Makes me feel like a kid getting a present. Opening the voxbox was simple. The cup is really cute :).

I got it out of the packaging and immediately washed it, following instructions. I liked that the valve can be attached to the lid if I want to use my dishwasher later. For this time I just handwashed all the pieces. I put water in it and gave it to my son, who is 2 years old. Personally, I think this cup is better for a much younger child and we are trying to get away from sippy cups now that he’s two. He was very frustrated because it took major suction to get anything out. I know because I tried and it was hard. I did check the it did not leak then. So for that I’ll rate is about 3 out of 5 stars, because if the kid can’t drink it then it’s really pointless. I made an extra slit in the valve where it connects to the spout and it still was difficult. So I made an extra slit where it receives air. Now he can drink it, but it does leak. That’s my fault though. Basically this one is not for toddlers. I’d give this to babies who need limited flow.
My son loves it and the ducks are very cute. This would make a great gift for any moms of kids between 6 months and a year. 😉

Good afternoon!

This is my first post but I’m just going to jump in here. 🙂
With my first birth I opted to have an epidural. Ever since then my back will periodically spasm and not want to support my weight. Last time it happened I could not stand straight. This time I had to stand ramrod straight or I was in so much pain I only wanted to scream and cry. Thankfully my husband was able to come home. He gave me a massage that helped. I also did some Google searching and read that yoga can help with posture and back pain. I tried limited stretches until I could stand more. Today I did a yoga routine from YouTube (meant for kids so mine could participate). My back still hurts but my range of movement has definitely increased and I no longer want to scream or cry. (Just wince quite a lot.) I’m hoping to start a daily regimen of yoga with the kids.
Also, I drank a few sips of a sleepy time tea because it has Valerian which promotes relaxation. I fell asleep shortly after haha. So maybe that can help with my insomnia. 😉
