Well, here I am, a day late and a dollar short as usual! In addition to my website, FineArtAmerica Gallery, and CafePress Storefront, I now have an aStore as part of the Amazon Associates program - just in time for the last three days of Christmas shopping! It pays to check into your various accounts once in awhile. Here, I've had an Amazon account and been part of the Amazon Seller Central program for about a year now and wasn't aware of this other option until I went shopping at the Kindle Store last week and noticed the section on the page regarding opening an aStore as part of the Amazon Associates program. So anyway, I've been working on this for a few days, starting out with some basics and adding a few different categories to get started, and voila! Here we go. For starters, I'm listing categories like Apparel and Accessories, Books, Music, Cameras & Photo, Computers, DVD, Sports & Outdoors, Video Games and of course Kindle Store. Eventually, I hope to have the entire gamut of Amazon products available as I continue to add more categories. So, all of you online Amazon shoppers out there - please bookmark my storefront for easy access. Of course, I'll provide quick links on my website, newsletters and this blog as well.
As a follow-up to last week's post about our trip to Leavenworth, WA - a great time was had by all! We checked into the Pension Anna, on Friday. Pictured here is the old Chapel, which was converted into lodging at the Inn, and is where we stayed. Spacious rooms downstairs, with a loft and two single beds on second level. Saturday morning brought the snow - started about 9:30, and continued all day long - to the tune of about 16 inches of snow! Made for a great sleigh ride/dinner that evening, although getting back into town afterwards was a little tricky. Last weekend was the Christmas Lighting Ceremony. The whole town is lit up and looks like a picture postcard; the streets are blocked off for pedestrian traffic, and there are all kinds of events that take place throughout the day. All in all, one of my favorite places! The only bad part of the weekend was that we didn't get to see our friends A.J. & Terrie. Due to all of the snow on Saturday, he had to spend the day Sunday plowing out his driveway and road to their B&B - Sky Meadows Retreat, so their guests would be able to get out. We'll catch up with them next time around.
