Ta-Da! The Website is Finally Complete...Almost...

Yeah....yeah me! I have FINALLY completed the site re-vamp for Can I tell you how excited I am! Well, it's not 100% complete, but hopefully by September, I will have all the kinks worked out and have all of the categories updated. I'm still adding lots of new products and will have a lot of new gifting items for the Holidays. Like engraved picture frames, piggy banks, trinket boxes, keychains, compacts...lots of fabulous stuff!

For those of you who don't know, I do all of my website design and product entry. So if you notice a broken link or a misspelled word, please feel free to send me an email.

I finally decided to enter the world of blogging. I've honestly had this blog set up for over a year, but have never really had time to focus on anything other than maintaining my website, processing orders, designing and making jewelry, invoicing, marketing, being a mommy, a wife and the list goes on and on.

The main reason I wanted to launch the blog is for my wonderful online customers. There are so many times that I receive emails and it's so shocking to me how many people think that behind the scenes there are tons of people running Fairy Tale Jewels. I'll get emails that say, "tell your boss you did a great job" or I'll get phone calls from scammers who say they spoke to someone else....and I'm like, "nope, it's just me". I also get emails about the validity of my business. I had (notice that I now have a Toll Free number) people wondering, "why don't you have a contact number...are you a real business?" Before, I did not publish my phone # because I had so many telemarketers and so forth blowing up my phone. It's also hard to explain to a customer that you work from home with three toddlers running around screaming, fighting, laughing...just sounds a little unprofessional.

Being an online consumer myself, you can never be too sure or too trusting. Hopefully this blog will put your mind at ease and let you know that I am just a stay-at-home-mom, following my passion, raising my babies and taking care of my customers. I am very blessed and wouldn't have it any other way!
