Sheesh, it’s not even Halloween yet, and the Christmas items are on the shelves at most hobby stores, and in department stores, too. Am I the only person in the world who remembers when Christmas items started trickling out AFTER Halloween, but were still mostly held back until after Thanksgiving? It’s ridiculous. Which is why I feel positively stupid for listing Christmas items in my etsy shop already. But here goes.
I’ve started with this little ticket. It’s so pretty, I almost don’t want to sell it, but it’s not really my style (in fact, I don’t really have a style…. Someone needs to nominate me for What Not to Wear, I’m so bad at dressing myself).
I’ve got a couple more Christmas items to list and a million ideas. Finding the time to execute them is a different story. This past weekend was extremely busy, and the coming week doesn’t promise to be much better. I still need to hem that dress! Yikes!
So not long ago one of my items made the front page on Etsy:
And last night, my treasury made the front page!
I’m trying not to get overly confident, but I finally feel like I’m getting somewhere on Etsy. All I can hope is that I’ll keep being this lucky.
I know one thing for sure, top notch photos are super important on Etsy. Probably the most important thing of all.
It’s been too long since I posted. But, well, life gets in the way so often.
I actually took pictures of my latest pots, but haven’t gotten the chance to upload them anywhere that they could be viewed from.
So I can leave you with this little picture of my new favorite thingy… Apparently the buyers on etsy like it too, I sold 2 last week, and a total of 6 items! That’s a record for me. Yay for great photos… Now I just have to figure out how to do it w/o my free trial of Photoshop CS3.
I’ve also been crocheting again and have come up with this little number, which was actually kind of a screw up gon right. :)
I likey. I hope someone else does too…. Little purses are just too much fun!
Wowza! So I just sold a bunch of pillows and bags to Aravelle.com . Hopefully they’ll be up on her site in the next few days. :) Sheena is such a nice lady! I really enjoyed getting to meet her and show her my things.
I’ve also recentlylisted a bunch of new stuff on my Etsy shop, but the favorite seems to be the elephants.
I also bought a new jelly roll of fabric. Oh geez do I not need more fabric. But I just can’t resist such wonderfully packaged little useless strips of fabric. Especially when they are cut with a pinking edge!!!
So here I sit trying to think how I will trun these little lovelies into a fantastic modern and mature baby quilt. Because, is there any other kind of quilt? Ok, yes there is. There is the quilt that sits on the back of my sewing chair that has been waiting patiently for about 7 years for me to finish quilting it. One day it will happen. I swear.
