An idea to ponder

**Don’t forget! This Saturday I’m hosting a craft supply yard sale from 8-1 and a Spring Fun workshop from 3-5! The sangria’s already on my list of groceries… HINT HINT! Hoping I can bribe you with booze, lol! 😉 **

I was blog-surfing the other day and came across a fabulous quote in passing. I’m afraid I can’t remember which blog it was on, but it was a business blog.

“Spend your money as if you were voting.”

So concise, so clear, and so right-on-point. Too often we buy things “just because”.

It was cheap.

It was fast.

It was there.

But what if we went out of our way a bit more each day. What if we spent our money on things that tasted better, felt better against our skin, took care of our bodies better, and with businesses and people we trusted and cared about?

Now I’m not one of those people who only buys from small businesses, hates the big-box stores and only eats organic. However, I firmly believe in supporting the businesses and employees I care about. I do try to buy handmade whenever possible (I need to work on that), and try not to give into instant gratification when something I want is available at a valued business but I find it at a place I wouldn’t usually give my money right now (I really need to work on that).

As an independent business woman I can firmly say that I want to be that person/business that is valued. I want my customers to become friends as I’ve become friends with so many people at the businesses I frequent. Where we spend our money is usually the place we spend the most of our time. More importantly, I want to put something out there that makes people feel better about themselves, their abilities and their memories.

And I want to spend my money like I’m voting.

Howdy!

Why “Mama Bear Stamps”?

A few years ago my daughter and husband gave me the nickname "Mama Bear" and I've used it ever since! This year I even conqured my fear of needles and had the Chinese symbols of mother and bear tattooed above my right ankle. When I started this blog, I knew I wanted to go by my nickname: Mama Bear. But you can call me Tammy if you'd like. :)
