Stumble Upon

That's right! I'm a stumbler!!!

What is it?
A free service where the individual can like or not-for-me ANY internet page.
The user may click stumble to go to a random liked page in one of their 'interest' areas.

How will it help my Etsy shop?
I will help you get found! It is a free marketing tool that is randomly reaching out to world who want to see what others like.

Has it helped me?
I'm not sure honestly. I've gotten a lot of views from it and since starting it several sales. I do not know if those sales came from Stumble or another venue though.

In the end:
It's free marketing for your shop or for people who want to promote their favorite items from the web. It's also neat to see what others have found (I don't use this a ton, but am always surprised when I do use it with the cool sites others have found!)

Hmmm Blogger Issues

Hmmm, I guess people cannot post my page. I'm hoping I fixed it!

However, I can't post on other peoples' pages either. May just be me!

Any help would be appreciated- avafritsch@aim.com

Teacher Scarf

Working on a beautiful scarf for a teacher. It would a wonderful Christmas gift this year! I have taguht for 10 yrs and trust me- teachers remember and favor kids who send in gifts. Especially those that are not another coffee cup, dish towel or potholder. I have millions of those. The little boy who gave me a necklace and earrings though, that stuck out!!! I'll never forget him!! Make your child be the one the teacher remembers!

OK so took some time off from my shop, blog, and facebook. I needed to get stuff back in order, AKA clean-up the craft room! I have posted 3 new dog toys- a leaf, ghost, and Frankenstein. Also, working on revamping my shop. I had to much going on in there. I need to focus! So we will be selling dog toys, quilts, and a few other sewn items. I am very excited to get started on a few new items. I hope every one enjoys them!!! Oh and my homepage link will bring you to my Etsy shop.

Thanks for looking!!!

Welcome to the blog of AVA Fritsch.

I am a mother, wife, college student, and an artist. I have a 5 yr old little boy who like most 5 yr olds is full of energy and love! My husband and I have been married for 6 yrs now. Despite my crazy crafting spirals he has stood by my side! I am working on getting my MBA in small business. I was a teacher for special needs students (mostly autism) but was recently laid off. Finally, I am an artist. I don't have any special training and have learned to learn from my mistakes. I like to crochet, paint, draw, and do general crafts.

My main reasons for starting to sell are 1. I'm running out of room! 2. We are saving for my son's future so that hopefully (keeping our fingers crossed!!!) he'll have very few student loans!! and 3. To make sure I can help provide for my family until I find another teaching job or start our shop.
