Summer days are here! We just got back from a family vacation up north and boy did it get cold at night. I forgot how cold it can get. We all came back with head colds! The girls loved being at the farm and making s'mores by the fire while listening to daddy tell his brave stories about the bear in the old store basement and the snapping turtle of Slippery Rock.

I was disappointed that no sales came in while I was gone, but I did get a great customer comment via email that I'll put on the website. I am proud to say that I haven't received any negative comments. Should I knock on wood now?

I haven't blogged in a while as the summer season has started and retail sales are in their usual slump. I got like this last year I remember (oh whoa is me). I do have a great ad going out next week with She Finds Mom. It's a great mommy site, as well as 5 Minutes For Mom is another one that is going to list Kaboodle Kids on their site. I found these sites while talking to a friend. I love both of them. The more of these sites I find, the more I am spending on them and not getting my work done! Anyway, I hope the ad next week and getting my site up on the other one helps generate some sales. Also Feed The Children got in touch with me and they are adding small business editorials to their website and they chose Kaboodle Kids as one of the first ones to be posted! That is exciting! Coming off my high of being on the Mommycast show as well.

Another reason I haven't blogged is that I've been busy with a new initiative for the website. I've added outfits on my website now, with pictures and everything. Hopefully, this will take all the work out of finding the outfits on my site... and the customer gets a better deal by buying the whole outfit vs each individual piece.
