More Shop Views??? Maybe...

Just considering all my options for obtaining more shop views... Let's face it, unless we can get the traffic to the store then we are NOT going to make any sales.

I currently use Twitter, Etsy Forums to post in a few times a day and am working a Facebook page. This blog is something that I am currently re-working and wondering if any of you would like to share your tips on how to gain more followers and more shop views. Feel free to add your tips here and maybe we can all learn from each other. Off to look through the etsy forums, will report back soon............... Yes, that non-sound is me leaving this site...

A Hand Grenade Was In His Truck?????

OK, So here is how my afternoon went. After a very successful day designing and creating new beaded Lanyard ID Badge Holders for my teachers and nurses; I left my home at my usual time to pick my daughter up from school.

Got to the intersection I normally turn onto, where I can actually see the school, and was flagged by a police officer to go the other way. I am truly aggravated now because I am going to be late picking up my daughter and she will not know where I am. After much panic and frantic phone calls, my husband is now en route via a shorter distance to get my child. Upon arrival to the school, we realize that there are police all over the place and none of the children are leaving the school. My husband; mans man that he is; proceeds to tell the police officer that his little girl is in that building and he is going to get her. Yes, they decided they had better let him walk up there. aaahhhhh, my hero.............Here he comes with my beautiful daughter by his side, Mom can once again breath....

Now, here is what all the uproar is over. Someone has just visited a home where they found a live hand grenade. Threw it in the back seat of their truck and decided it might be fun to call up a few buddies and tell them what fun he is having.... Really???? Yes, really. It only took about 3 phone calls for someone with common sense to realize that maybe they should call the police since this idiot is now parked across the street from a Jr. High School and these kids will soon be walking down the sidewalk right beside this guys truck.

The Bomb Squad comes and pulls the grenade out of the truck and off they go to "an undisclosed location" to detonate this grenade. The news station referred to this grenade carrying idiot as "not to bright"...You Think!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sooooooooo, How as your day????
