Talking Shop...Beth's New Shop! {Through the Eyes of the Mrs.}

Good Morning My Lovelies!
Today is a special day for one of our fellow bloggers.  Remember Beth from Through the Eyes of the Mrs.?  Of course you do!
Well, this blogger-ette and I were chatting it up the other day and I thought I'd share the conversation with you.
She was telling me all about her new shop,  , come take a listen:)

hi there…thanks for visiting!  so I hear that there’s something special going on in your neck of the woods?
I'm thrilled to say that my shop is finally open and ready for business. It's been such a long time coming and I've prepared and worked hard for this day. I still have a lot of work to do but I'm so happy and relieved. You know how crazy and chaotic things have been for me recently and the time has come!

Do you have photos of your line?
Of course I do hun. Here's a few pretties and you can see more at http://www.etsy.com/shop/throughtheeyesofmrs I'd love to hear what you think and if you place an order in May I'm offering Free Shipping. Just enter MRSFREESHIP at checkout.
I love it!  What made you want to start this up?
The first blog I ever followed inspired me years ago to start a shop of my own. I was never sure what I wanted to do but have always been a creative person. After years of talking myself out of it the Mr. finally told me to go for it and don't look back. I took the first steps basically on my tip toes and now am thankful that he talked me into it.

With everything else you have on your plate, how do you handle it all?
I really don't know some days how I manage everything but somehow by the grace of God and a good attitude I get through the toughest days. The Mr. is very supportive and often comes home from work to help me bathe the kids and clean up dinner. I really couldn't do any of this without him. He may drive me banana's at times but I'm thankful. I think that some days our family totally could be a sitcom because it can be quite comical trying to do it all.

Do you have any DOs and DON’Ts on starting this type of adventure for other mom-preneurs?
I really have no idea what I'm doing half the time but I believe in the power of friends and social networking. I believe that you need to do your homework and I also believe that your products should go well together. I have spent countless hours studying and taking advice from other shop owners.  I think that I've prepared myself the best that I can but I'm always a work in progress and learning new things.

I always love having you here – thanks again for visiting and chatting with us!
Oh girl you know I love you and I thank you for all of you support and friendship. It's been a wild ride and I'm grateful for friends like you. I've been the worst friend lately so I apologize to all of you beautiful ladies.

I hope you enjoyed the little chat.  Now, please please stop by Beth's shop and give it some love {with free shipping!}.
