Attitude of Gratitude

For those who don't know, Caitlin is an ICU nurse. This means she gets the thrill of life-and-death situations, but also the struggles of everyday nursing. I never knew it before she started her job, but nursing is an often thankless task. It's mentally and physically and emotionally exhausting. For someone as small in stature [...]

Paved With Good Intentions

I remember the first time I heard the old cliche "The road to hell is paved with good intentions." It was a sweet 85+ year old woman in Christchurch New Zealand who told me. I was 20...I know, I know, most people have heard this by age 3. Maybe I'd heard it before this, but [...]

Product Reviews: The Agony, The Ecstacy, The Irony...

I'll admit it: I live and die by our product reviews. I check them almost daily, and I am so stoked with every positive one and torn up with every negative one. Because this business is all I do (not quite 24/7, but probably 14/7/365), it feels like every review is, in a way, a [...]

Growing Painz

Nothing, and I repeat NOTHING is more cliche to me than the term "Growing Pains." I've heard and read about it in a million business and motivational books, and it always goes something like this: "Growing is way harder/more stressful/less fun/etc than the lean times..." etc. And I always called rubbish on those statements. Until...It's [...]

The Hidden Awesomeness of Gift Messages

Especially around this time of year, about 20% of our orders are gifts. This means they don't display prices and most of them include a gift message.Now, don't get me wrong, we don't snoop on gift messages. But since we print the packing slip, we see what is written for the gift message, and it's [...]

With that being said (and yes, I already blogged about this same thing less than a week ago), we are just thrilled with how much we are selling right now. It's gratifying [...]
