My Newest Brand, Hired Help & my Etsy Sale!

  Do you struggle with "clutter" at your house as much as I do?  I get so overwhelmed sometimes with all my clutter, and don't know what to do with it all.  I also get overwhelmed with all that there is to do to take care of my home, and unfortunately there is no one to help. It's been almost 5 years since my husband's accident, and death, and we didn't have children so there's just me.  I am responsible for everything, including making sure grass is mowed, gardening, house is clean and everything else that comes with owning a home.   I have had "several" handy men in the last 5 years, doing lots of odd jobs, and none of them worked out for one reason or another. Finally, for the summer,  I have hired a " handy woman". My best friend's daughter is home from college, and needed a job, so I have hired her to work 8-10 hours a week. She has done a lot in  in just 3 short days, she has cleaned and organized half of my basement - a HUGE job, did spring cleaning in the kitchen, weeded my flower garden, planted some herbs, edited & taken pictures for my business, and more. She will be helping me with other various jobs as they come along this summer. My goal was to clean the basement this past winter, but it was just too COLD down there.  Anyway, I am excited about getting some things done around here, she is also good at organizing, and good with a hammer & nail, so she will be very such a blessing to have around.

You might notice the picture at the top, this is my new line of drawstring  "backpacks."  Although, this one has lightweight webbing, not cord, and it has a heavyweight orange lining.  I'm going to be making more of these and also more messenger bags of different fabrics.  There are a few new items pictured also, the denim tote with the German boy & girl on the side,
and butterfly handbag.
 Planning to make some beach bags, so if you need one and have a special request let me know.  I will be doing tote style, and drawstring style like the tropical fish bag pictured.  Note : this one is small but would be great for a kid's bag.  All these items will be on Etsy or my web site soon!
 I am having a SALE on Etsy.  Get $3 off any $15 purchase!  Use coupon code:  LATESPRINGSALE3  at checkout to get discount.  If you have any questions, please do no hesitate to send me a message through Etsy or to my e-mail address or "Contact Me on my web site!

I almost forgot!  I had a giveaway to celebrate 200 Facebook likes.  The winner was Gina Painter -she will receive a $20 gift card!

Would your best friend's daughter like to work for me when she finishes everything you need?
