Happy Thanksgiving!

It's hard to believe it's already that time of year again!

We have so much to be thankful for. We've been blessed with our own home, Adam's job is still going well despite this crazy economy, our children are healthy and happy, we successfully own a dog after many heartbreaking tries, we are loved, we love, and God shows us His mercy and kindness all the time. What more could we want?

I hope this finds you all well and thankful for God's mighty hand working on your behalf. Enjoy the company of friends and family. Invite someone new over for food and games, or to just hang out. You never know what a blessing you could be to a stranger.........or they to you.

Love to you all,
the Miller tribe

Zeb-ism for the day:

zeb: "Wow, Mama! Peanut is really fast at running............................she's like a speed monkey."

mama: "(bwahahahaha) And just what is a speed monkey?"

zeb: "It's a monkey with fire on it's butt. That makes it go really fast."

mama: "BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Of course it does, Zeb. You're funny!"

Grand Opening!

Well, I've finally done it! I've gone out there and put my crafty talents to good use by starting my very own online business. It's called lemonade sun productions. It is part of a larger community of crafters on which I found through one of the ladies in my MOPS group recently.

I am so excited about this new venture. I am hoping God will bless all my hard work (and that people will actually want to buy these things I make) and that this will be a very good thing.

I am counting on your help via word of mouth. Please check out my store and pass it along to your friends if you wish to. There is a selection of my listings in the side panel of this blog that will take you directly to the online store with just a click of your mouse. I am wide open for ideas or encouragement about all things business, so if you care to share some of your wisdom with this little newbie, I would be very grateful for it.

I have been busy studying anything I could find to read about Etsy and online businesses, so some of the categories in my store are empty, but I am working on products that will fill them with all my spare time. Hopefully before too long you will see more items listed.

I created a blog for the business too, but I am not sure if I will be able to maintain both. For now, it is on a trial run, but here's the link for lemonade sun production's blog

I'm sure some of you are thinking, "It's about time that girl did something with her talent!"
I know. It's been a LONG time coming, but I finally got it together.
