Saturday Sales: Time for a Little Monkey Business

I went through a phase where I was obsessed with making my bedroom into a jungle. I think I was 11 or 12. I had a bunch of monkey stuffed animals that I would try to hang and prop in different corners of my room. I even had a monkey that screeched “OOOOOH EEEEAHHH AHHH AHH AHHHHHHH!” or something like that. In one of my windows I strung up some puppet/mobile animals I made. I had an ostrich, a slender loris, a bush baby, and lemurs. I had other animal pictures in different parts of my room, too.

Do you have a little one like that, or are you yourself into the jungle theme? Check out the treasury below, and see if you can spot the on sale wallinspired item 🙂

Moms Monday: I know you are but what am I?

First, I want to thank everyone for reading, commenting on, following, and supporting this blog! It really means a lot to me and it has boosted my confidence in my writing and ability to network with others. I have learned so much just by interacting with you all here.

Have you read the about page here on the blog? If you’ve ever wondered who is the person writing this stuff? you can find some answers there, but I’ll also provide some answers here.

Me – Elise

You may have discovered this already, but I’m not a mom. Is that shocking? I hope not. I guess I should be flattered if you are shocked. You see I’m just shy of 20 and began writing this blog not because I think I’m some sort of parenting expert, but due to my collaboration with wallinspired.

Wallinspired has a great business going on Etsy and if you run a small, but growing business yourself, you can understand that managing every aspect of your business can be difficult, very difficult. So that’s where I come in. I also run an Etsy shop, Pieces of Elise’s (because my name is Elise – hi there!), and even though my shop is by no means flourishing just yet, I have learned a lot about marketing, social networking, and E-Commerce through the research I’ve done over the past 2 years.

I also write on Squidoo, Yahoo! Voices, and just started my own blog. Craig with wallinspired approached me to promote their shop through this blog, social networks, and elsewhere. If you’ve visited wallinspired‘s shop on Etsy, you probably noticed that their vinyl wall decals are for kids, tweens, and teens. So I’ve really focused my efforts on this blog to reach you, the parents of the kids, tweens, and teens, as well as anyone else who is interested.

I’d like to think that writing for this blog has been going pretty well and that you all are enjoying your time spent here. Would you like to give some feedback?

Click here to take survey and you will be added to a drawing where 1 winner will be chosen. The winner has the choice of getting a free advertising spot on the blog (a 150 x 150 image linking to their blog or website on the right over there –>),  a chance to write a guest blog post here on the wallinspired blog about a topic of their choice, or a free handmade item from my own Etsy shop Pieces of Elise’s. So please take the survey for a chance to win!!!

Saturday Sales: Get Ready to Take Flight

I work on the eighth floor of an office building and most of the time I’m tied to my chair at the receptionist desk. Even though I spend about 9 hours desk bound, it could be worse. I could be in a cubicle! Instead I think I have the best view in the office. There are 2 conference rooms, one on the east, which is closer called “Lakeside”, and one on the west called “The Boardroom”. Both conference rooms have huge windows on their exterior wall. From where I sit all I see are trees and sky. Well, not all. In Lakeside to the east I get to see the geese as the dive toward the lake or hawks swooping off of the roof. I love seeing that. I feel like I’m stealing a special look at nature that no one else gets to see. That inspired this treasury– take a look and see if you can spot the on sale wallinspired decal 🙂

Tuesday Newsday: Keeping Track of Your Kids

Hi everyone!

I’d like to get your thoughts on this article:

Microchipped school uniforms notify parents when kids skip school | Technology News Blog – Yahoo! News.

This Brazilian private school has embedded microchips in the school uniforms to alert parents of when their children enter school grounds or are more than 20 minutes late via text message.

The school implemented this technology after parents were so surprised that their kids had so many tardies.

What do you think of this method?
