Youtube video Marketing

I have been procrastinating about making a video/slideshow for Youtube . I'm fairly computer illiterate and was worried that it would be too difficult for me to do. Well, last night after all day shopping with my daughter, I finally took the plunge. And lo and behold, it was NOT as horribly difficult as I thought it would be-actually it was pretty easy and fun. I used I found Onetruemedia to be very user friendly, it is free to sign up and make a video or you can purchase a subscribtion and get more goodies. The most difficult part for me was deciding which photos I wanted to upload. My advice to those who are worried about doing a video for marketing is -take the plunge!!
Here is a link to my Youtube video if you would like to see it...

Christmas Shopping with Etsy Part I

I have never been the type of person who loves the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping. I'd much rather sit at home in my pjs and enjoy the twinkling lights on my Christmas tree and stay nice and toasty warm in front of the fireplace and SHOP!! So I thought I would show y'all some wonderful Christmas gift ideas from some of my team members on ETSY.

I will list some new and wonderful gift ideas every few days- so be such and check back to see what wonderful items we've found.

Some great gifts for girls ....

I just love seeing little girls all dressed up to have their picture taken with Santa and this beautiful dress from

This cute NYPapercrafter would be fabulous for the girl who likes to journal.

Have a dancer in the family? Magenta Pink Bear with Rosebud Ballet Tutu from Camillam is adorable for your little dancer.
