It's been awhile...

It has been almost two weeks since my last post. I've wanted to post but I just haven't had time. Last week was midterms week. I think I did fairly well but, I'm surely not setting the curve. I've also been working on website. Now that I have my website set up, people need to find it so I have been reading up on that. I also have promotion idea's swimming around in my mind. After thanksgiving break I want to write up a short ad about etsy and pass it out in all of classes. I think it could open a lot of eyes to world of handmade goods. I'm going to talk to my professors and make sure it is alright with them and university policy. I'm sure it will be. Well I'm going to research search engine optimization. Hopefully I'll find some time to make a few new pieces.

Website is Up!

I have been working on my website for a few weeks. I've been getting feedback on the design and how it looks in different browsers. I finally got everything working, I hope. Overall I'm really satisfied with my site. It set up like a shop but everything links back to etsy. Check it out let me know what you think.

On another note, school is going well. It is taking up most of my time. I am getting better at managing my time. I'm working on my procrastination. I've been squeezing in some crafting time. My lasting listing in my etsy shop is a magnet set. They are so cute.

Featured Shop: Canadian Wood Crafts

The name says it all, wooden crafts from a seller in Canada, right? Well sort of. When I think of wooden crafts, I automatically envision the uneven spice racks and crooked birdhouses that were a product of high school shop class. That is so far from what your find in this shop. This hand carved wood serving spoon is beautiful. The best description come from Barry, the shop owner. “I have always felt that even simple everyday tools such as a Wooden Spoon should be not only pleasing to the eye but comfortable for the hand as well.” The wooden spoons in my kitchen draw look nothing like that. After seeing how attractive a spoon can look, I may never be satisfied with my drab wooden spoon again. I also love his wooden pendants. This “E” is for etsy wood pendent is my favorite. I love the way the three different types of wood blend together. I also suggest you look around this shop for all the great things I didn’t mention, trust me it worth looking at!
