1st Post

Hello hello blogging world!

I am creating this blog in order to contribute more to the community, and write about my trials, tribulations, successes and solutions to my site/craft issues.

For more personal information, I still have my livejournal (which I have had for about 6 years now), I have a myspace and a facebook - heck, I think I am even on twitter. However, each one serves a slightly different function - so here I am, to talk etsy!

First things first, if you haven't been there, please go to That is where my shop is - where I sell the items I have made with my own two hands.

At the moment I have 21 items listed and have made 1 sale. I have spent a little bit of time today reading the etsy success stories on the website, and am biting at the bit wondering how I get from here to there.

I received business cards with my etsy site on them, so I have been passing them out at work today. That's one goal.

Goal number two is to continue to improve the photographs of my pieces.

A few things that I want to remember are:

1. Get more accurate shipping prices for my pieces

2. Send personalized thank you notes, and maybe a little extra gift when I sell a piece

In terms of the projects I am working on - I have a set of granny square crocheted bags that I need to make liners and handles for, a great chunky green scarf I am almost done crocheting, annndd dozen of magnets that need photographing!

I am really excited about etsy, and I hope it proves worthwhile.
