Weekly Winners January 12th- 18th

Here is this weeks Weekly Winners post, as with last week all photos were captured using my new Kodak Cd-1013 Digital Camera. Here is Alexandria-Maybelle, the bunny. We have had her since way before the move to Evansville. We ended up buying her at the feed and tack store one spring while my mom was visiting us in Flagstaff. We had a bunny, Baby Bunny, prior to Alexandria-Maybelle but because of living situations (the landlord forced us to remove our unauthorized pets from the rental) we had to send her and the cats down to The Ranch to live with my mom for a few months. Anyway Baby Bunny died (from eating apple core and seed we suspect) and we went several months, almost a year, without a bunny in the home....

A free domain name?

Register.com sent me and unsolicited email about free domain registeration that they are giving away till 3/25/08. I thought it looked like an interesting deal so I headed over to the site to read the find print. It is actually free for 1 year from the date of registration (you will need to buy your own hosting plan separate from the domain if you wish to use it), the catch is that they want your credit card information on the account so that when the free year is up they can charge you for a second year and so on. They charge $35.00 for 1 year domain registration!! What a rip off! I actually do not recommend register.com's hosting plans to anyone who wishes to have control over their site/ SEO. I...

Accouting Program for Small Business Owners

Small business & hobby business owners often have a hard time with accounting software. Small companies often do not have the money to buy expensive accounting software and often times they don't even really need all the bells and whistles that the expensive programs offer. Small business owners care about bookkeeping but often times have a hard time finding a tool that will help them take care of business. Today I learned about a rather unique company that takes a different approach altogether. They offer a web based accounting program that does the basics in small business accounting. It's called LessAccounting.com. The idea they have is to offer accounting solutions that get out of your way and let you run your business. I went over to the site and created a free...

Craft Show Tables & Booths

This last weekend I did my first outdoor 2 day craft show at the 3rd annual Slide Rock Apple Festival. Taking on outdoor events meant I had to make some investments in equipment and supplies that would make my space look good. We bought an EZ-Up Instant Shelter to protect ourselves and the products from the elements. We had some problems with the EZ-Up but I'll talk about that in another post. Anyway, I am trying to find some ways to make my booth a bit more inviting and eye catching. Yes, that is my booth in the photo...

A New Chapter Begins!!!

Today is the beginning of a new chapter with my business!! I have the state and city business licenses and the tax id applications ready to be mailed back to the appropriate people.. That means I am an official business! I am also taking all my prepared product over to my new permanent location @ the Flagstaff Swap Meet to get things set up. I joined a co-op organization that makes it possible to display and sell your work without having to pay excessive & costly craft show fees and without having to spend tons of time working various craft booths. I am excited and stressed at the same time. This weekend is The Cupid’s Craft Show at the Flagstaff Swap Meet and I am worried that I do not have enough...
