The Cloth Pad Survey Results

Hello All! I thought I would share the results of a recent survey I did in my facebook group for my business, The Wittle Whale, where I sell handmade ecofriendly reusable and baby items like bibs, cloth wipes, and cloth pads.

I’ve been an avid user and promoter of this reusable menstrual item for the past three years, and have had fun making these items for the past two years. I have a facebook group for my customers, and I hosted a survey and giveaway for them so I could pick their brains on our product offerings. I thought I would share the results in case anyone was curious.

Jaku + My Failure to Blog it

Jaku + My Failure to Blog it

I’ve been in a bit of a blogging lull this month. I have been so busy with work, Etsy, and being sick that I’ve had to put publishing on the back burner.

Here in Michigan, we’ve been saved from the Bomb Cyclone that the East Coast has received, but that hasn’t meant we’ve been spared from the grips of winter. It has been bitterly cold, barely making it in to the teens for the past three weeks. This has meant that I haven’t gone outside much save for moving in and out of my car to work or home.

Thankfully though, my friend Allie and I decided to get together and brave the cold weather to stop in to one of our favorite Grand Rapids grocer – Horrocks Market!

My Black Friday Haul

My Black Friday Haul

Confession: I’m a recovering shopaholic. I have gone nuts (and racked up quite a bit of debt) going shopping in the past and I loved going on Black Friday with my friend.

This year however, my relationship to shopping and to my burden of debt has changed. Rather than buy things simply because of a good deal or I wanted it, I’ve chosen to be more strategic in my Black Friday deal shopping.
