I'M ON A TEAM!

Yep! You "read" me correctly ;-) I am on my very first team and I am totally excited about it. In fact, I'm so excited that I had to blog about it! I have joined Team EEAT- Etsy's Edible Arts Team and today was my official day as a member. I am looking forward to all the great things being on this team will bring :-D

In other news...I am sending out 20 orders tomorrow of mini Snickerdoodles and mini Chocolate Chip Cookies as part of a sampler box. Just another way to promote the shop ;-)

Also, I am going to dedicate this weekend to ONLY card making (that is if I do not have any baking orders). Valentine's Day is approaching quickly and I REALLY need to build up my stock in the shop. I did manage to get one card done yesterday but haven't posted yet. That will be coming soon :-D

Finally, the nasty spider bite is calming down! Yay! It is still quite infected but not as bad as it could have been. I visited the doctor today and, though she is pleased with the progress, still cut me open to try and get as much of the poison out that the medication has not killed yet. I am a bit sore but, in the end, it is worth the pain. I want to send a million thank you's, hugs, and kisses to all of my wonderful friends for your caring thoughts. I love you all very much :-D

Hugs,
Laura

Gooooooooooo Team! hehe...
I know, I'm too silly ~ That is SO cool about the Team~ I've thought about joining, but haven't made it to that point yet. Your team isn't as large by huge as some of the jewelry teams...

So glad you had another "inspection" and you're ok. GAWD, when I think of it, I still get chills. EEkk!!
Have a wonderful weekend!
Loads of love,
A

Oh congratulations my dear friend!! This is absolutely awesome and you totally deserve all the success you've had and what's yet to come.

I'm relieved to hear you're feeling better and I hope you continue to through the weekend. BIG hugs!!♥ (you're SO brave!)

That's great that you've joined an Etsy team! I joined one a while back and it has all been a really positive experience. Have met and made friends with some lovely local Etsy sellers and it's a nice support network. Actually I've joined 2 teams, but one I'm not so active in. You'll have a ball!

Glad to hear that you're recovering from your spider ordeal. Also happy to hear that your shop is doing so well! Good on you! You deserve the success :)

Hey the word verification is 'Ovenge' and thought it was funny and appropriate. I imagine it to mean that an oven takes revenge on the owner for over-using it, by burning everything. Look out Laura! ;D My oven takes 'ovenge' on me all the time by burning everything I put into it and I don't even over-use it! My oven is simply evil.

Gosh I speak a lot of dribble!

Aaaaaaawwww! Seriously, I'm eating and you talk about opening up infected spider-bites to get poison out! Eeeewwwww! But it's good that you got onto a team! I hope you feel better soon!

Thank you everyone :-D I really am excited to be on this team AND NOW I will be on another team! Actually, both of my shops will be on a team and I will tell you as soon as I have my "team" page set up. Mua hahahahaha!

Thank you again for the well wishes. This spider bite doesn't have a chance of making me worse because of all your love and support! As they say, love is the strongest medicine ;-)
