    So today I had an open house for my lia sophia jewelry business, and it was a total FLOP!! My neighbor is doing purse parties, and she had her purses here too. We had 3 people show up! We both sent out TONS of e-mails. I had a few other people say they'd be stopping by, but didn't. Usually when I hold this open house (every catalog change I do a "Last Chance/First Glance" open house- with the discontinued items and new items), I end up submitting a show for July (the old stuff) and August (the new stuff). This time- only 1 $41 order. It sucks because I haven't done much since my last month of pregnancy, and was really hoping to get the business going again. Oh well, at least my livingroom is clean now!

      First off = Austin is so freaking cute!!! I love his little outfit!

      Second = Sorry about the open house. That definitely sucks. I wouldn't take it too personal though. I know I've been trying to cut back on my shopping lately, especially with the rising gas prices. Hopefully your orders will pick up!

        I'm with Jessica, times are hard right not for LOTS of people! Don't take it personal! Besides you have soooo much to be grateful for! Focus on what you HAVE rather than what you DONT! (easily said, I know, but it's true)

        Things will get better! :)

          I'm so sorry, that just stinks! I hope it picks up soon.

            Awe, that's kinda crappy... it will pick up though. I imagine it's a combination of the economy and the fact that you have been away from it a bit with the baby.

            But on the bright side, Austin is the most precious little guy ever!
