A Few Reminders

Yesterday I purchased 150 pounds of apples to make apple sauce and apple pies. Should keep me busy for the next while! Today I'll be making apple sauce from 30 pounds of apples, the rest will wait till the weekend, they were just picked on Sunday and are still a bit green. So todays post is a quick on with some reminders of great things happening on the internet!!

If you need some very affordable exposure for your shop - this is definitely the place to be. It's $10/yr, and the site is advertising like crazy!! Please check it out.

I've joined this wonderful Shop Swap & Blog. At the end of the month everyone who signed up will be paired with someone and you send them a product or two from your shop (they will do the same), then you blog about it! This should be a lot of fun, plus free promotion is always nice. LOL
