There Is No Place Like Chicago

With no offense to any other places I love living in the Chicago area. We moved here 22 years ago and we've visited other cities but my love for this city is special.  No summer passes by without multiple visits to the downtown area.

Chicago is known as the Windy City. It is also known for its skyscrapers, like the Sears Tower and the John Hancock Center, and its sparkling lights all over the streets at night time.

Last weekend my husband and I went to Navy Pier, a tourist spot downtown. We enjoy walking around there and looking out onto Lake Michigan as the sailboats pass by, birds flying overhead, and people having good time.

Hubby took me on a dining cruise on Lake Michigan for my birthday. We had a great time, delicious food, a great view, and a full moon above us as we watched the fireworks :).

There is always something happening at Navy Pier! Spectacular fireworks every Wednesday and Saturday during summer time till Labor Day. I encourage everyone who comes to Chicago to go visit the downtown area and, of course, The Magnificent Mile on Michigan Ave.

Enjoy the views as well.

These were my goals for 2011

1- Read  the emails that Etsy sends everyday
2- Improve my pictures and work harder on my descriptions
3- Make more jewelry and  list at least 5 items a week, this gives my shop more views and visits
4- Make 120 sales for 2011
5- Learn how to blog and start working on blogging once a week
6- Have more than 100 followers on my blog and more than 200 followers on my Facebook
7- To be encouraged to ask the boutiques owners to sell my jewelry there
8- Search and learn more on how to participate on successful  shows

And this is what I achieved  in  my Etsy shop for the year 2011
1.In 2011.. I don't read them all but I read once in a while.
2. In 2011.. I worked harder on improving my pictures and I think I got better photos than before
3. In 2011..I made more finished jewelry and listed more than 5 items a week.
4. In 2011.. My sale goals were to make the whole year 120 sales. My shop last year had only finished jewelry and no supplies only few items. I decided to sell supplies for jewelry Makers.  So as for today I had more than 850 sales instead of 120 sales. (My goal for this was way way more than I imagined or I thought will be in 3 years but it HAPPENED!)
5. In 2011.. I blogged  2-3 times a month.
6. In 2011.. I have 112 follower in my blog.
7. In 2011 I didn't sell in any consignment shops yet.
8. In 2011... I participated in less shows than last year.

  I am thankful to have a best team ever  in Etsy♥ Promotional Frenzy Team ♥ The members of this team always helped me and they still help me all the time. They are always there for me and I always get  lot of words of encouragement and support from everyone. Thank you PFT!♥
 I am going to work harder for this coming year of 2012 and hoping for better!!

My Expired Items

I usually blog about new items added in my shop here 
But this time I want to talk about my jewelry items which are  expiring almost everyday.  I am selling jewelry supplies very well and I am very appreciative for all the sales I have in my shop but I feel sad when I see no one is buying my pieces already made.
So I decided to do 2 things to help sell my jewelry better. Everyday  I post the (deal of the day)  in my shop announcements.  Any item that will expire soon will go on sale and you can use this coupon for it. The  coupon code is (expired20)  for 20% off. Next, use the coupon code sep10 for 10% off any jewelry pieces over  $15  plus a  free pair of earrings. The  earrings are made of  faceted crystals and the metallic peacock color will match almost any outfit.  The deal worked so far and I sold 2 necklaces already hoping to sell more.
So maybe now is the good time to start shopping  for Christmas at a  good deal.

A few of my new items that will expire soon

Some of the items already expired and I will renew it if someone interested in them.

Labor day weekend

Our visit to Wisconsin Dells.My hubby and me went to Wisconsin Dells in the  Labor day weekend.
Was short but nice get away for 2 days from work and kids.

First night we visited Rick Wilcox magic theater and this was amazing show and funny.

                                                   And secret mission

Second day we visited Believe it or not museum. In this museum you see lot of  weird, funny and strange stuff in there

                                            The tallest man ever 9 feet

                                            The double eyed man

At night we went to Sunset dinner cruise and the food was so good. They served lobster and sirloin steak and off course lot of yummy pies and cheesecake :)

At the end of the cruise we saw the beautiful sunset from the boat.

Oh I forgot to tell you  almost  the whole weekend was raining or some showers here and there but we had full, busy and fun time together.
