Etsy Maine Team Challenge: Accepted

So Peggy, from, came up with an idea the other day (admist her talking to herself through her 3 shops - pretty funny, but long story). She proposed an Etsy Maine Team Challenge, for any takers to list 5 new items (not renewed or relisted) each week for 4 weeks. Each shop that completed this task, would then be entered into a drawing at the end (Ocotber 16th) to win a special gift basket full of other Maineteamer's goodies.

I of course took this challenge, and thus far have listed my 5 items for the first week. Check out, to see what 5 new listings I added...I'll give you a hint, they are all PJs. And I've already got next week's 5 sitting on my table ready to post! What great fun, and I'm TOTALLY excited to WIN!

Interweaving the military with Camelot's Treasures

A few weeks ago, we found out that our family will be moving to Gaeta, Italy in May/June 2010 for our next duty station. Yes, I'm totally stoked on the whole European experience; I have been dreaming of the day that I could visit but now I get to live there for 3 years...WOW!

But after the initial excitement, I'm a bit overwhelmed with the great changes that will have to come in this move. I'm a frustrated over the lack of information there is out there concerning a Navy Family move to overseas. I'm constantly wondering what will happen to Camelot's Treasures during the move, and the stay over in Italy. Too bad there is no instruction manual on life!

So I've come up with an idea. I don't know if this will help anyone or not, but I want people to know there is some place where there is information concerning all of this. From today on, I will chronicle my journey before, during, and after the move as a military (especially Navy) family. And I will feature the idea of how to sustain this handmade business that I have made for myself.

of course, I will still "talk shop", letting you know what is going on in all three of our stores ( , , and But I'm going to use this as a journal of sorts. So feel free to post comments, questions, ideas, suggestions, what have you throughout this adventure!

That's it for now, though; lunch is on the stove, and the 2 year old is grumbling about being hungry. Such is life....
