I'm linking up with Kelly again this week--Hi, Kelly!
Anyone who blogs knows that all those ads for getting rich off of blogging are akin to signing your child up for little league at 3 because baseball will make you rich. Can it happen? Yes. Does it happen every time? No way, and there are far more who just enjoy playing the game than will ever make a single dollar doing so.
So, I have been looking for a way to help support this blog and my family while still staying true to my mission.
As you may know, I have had an etsy shop for quite awhile but it has only been active on and off. I never had a good business plan or a clear direction. I knew what I wanted but hadn't figured out how to get there or what it would look like.
Well, that has changed! My shop is now fully stocked, with more items on their way this weekend. I am partnering with some amazing Catholic crafters to create the shop I have always dreamed of having.
What does this have to do with the blog? Well, I don't want the blog to become a billboard for the store. My reason for blogging is not to earn profit. However, my vision for my blog is a treasure trove of resources for Catholic moms just like me. Am I there yet? No, but I am on a mission from God to provide those as best I can.
Enter my shop. It dovetails so nicely with my blog because I offer veils and vocation dolls. My plan is to expand the shop to provide items I would most like for my family at prices that make them accessible to every Catholic home.
All of the products are high quality. I am to make my customers happy. I know as a mom how much work it is to provide for a family and how tight money can be. When I purchase something, I want it for be something that will last and be well used.
This shop and Beauty Tuesday are my way of spreading light, beauty, truth, goodness, and joy. I hope that you will become a fan even if you can't buy anything from the shop. I am an expert window shopper, window shoppers are always welcome in my store!
I am going to highlight different products each Thursday over the next few months. We have some amazing deals planned and many more products in the works.
Do you own a book shop or parish store? Do you have a Catholic shop that you frequent? We are looking for wholesale outlets and are open to group, bulk orders. Maybe get a group of friends together and order new veils. You will get quality veils and a discount, and my family will receive the extra financial support we need right now.
Can't buy anything? No problem--I understand more than you know! Like us on Facebook and have a chance to enter one of our giveaways!
Is there a product you wish you could find? Please comment below. I really want this shop to be a service to the Catholic community.
Thank you for reading my little press release. I hope you don't mind. It is very hard for me to pursue self promotion, but I wanted to let all of you know what is new and different.
Please come back Tuesday for more Beauty Tuesday and next Friday I will have a new Let's Get Planning post! Thank you and God bless!
