Catching up

In my previous post about Christmas Preparations I talked about some custom orders we received that people used as gifts. Here are 2 more!

I have been so busy with the holidays and taking care of the homestead now that winter is really hitting with all the cold weather.

I have also been busy because I got a new sewing machine for Christmas from Zach. It was a total surprise.  My mom got me a sewing machine desk as well and so I got my area all set up and began sewing right away. It’s all I want to do now.

I have been making a lot of new products inclung lots of reusable toilet paper. Not sure about reusable toilet paper? Read about it in my blog post

And I have been working on a lot of Valentine’s Day items. Here’s a sneak peak.

We have also been very busy with lots of hunting and trapping.
We set lots of goal for 2017. Here are a few:

  1. Blog more and have it help our business by letting people know who is creating the products for Jane’s This-N-That.
  2. Quadruple our Etsy sales. That means more product listings instead of just selling in person. And more promotions so stay tuned on our business page for when we have coupon codes.
  3. Bring new product lines into the business. We have some new products that we will soon be showing. Is there something you’d like to see us selling? 
  4. Really work on the shop. Last year we quickly outgrew our space and so we are expanding. Which means more space and more products. And also more stock so we will be even busier. 

We are really excited to see what 2017 brings for us and our business as well as our homestead. Some of the homesteading goals include:

  1. bigger garden
  2. more chickens to grow our flock
  3. fruit trees
  4. Growing pine trees
  5. Starting a herb garden

We will definitely be busy and can’t wait to share our journey with you.

My mom started this business over 13 years ago and I have been trying to expand it and keep it growing with her help.  Where this business now is compared to where it started is truly amazing for us. We are very proud of our accomplishments.
