Here is where I share a big part of the reason that my posting has been so, eh, shall we say non-existent? for the last couple weeks. Much of my time (and most of my internet time!) has been going into getting my own little online “shop” set up:
That’s right; I’ve been a busy little bee making earrings and establishing my own lil’ presence over on Etsy. If you’re unfamiliar with Etsy, it’s a great little community of people who sell either vintage finds or their own handmade work.
I’ve been beading for about 3 years now, but this fall was the first time that I ever sold any of my work. We had a little art fair out in Kennicott, and I realized how much fun it was to be able to sell jewelry that I’d made myself! That made me start thinking that maybe I’d be able to sell a bit more? So the wheels started turning, and, finally, about a week and a half ago, the Etsy shop became a reality. Hurrah!
So that is my confession, and my explanation, for why I’ve been so absent over here. Hopefully, now that everything is set up, I will no longer have to sacrifice my recipe blog to spend time on the Etsy shop. Anyways, thanks for reading even though I’ve been sporadic, and I hope that you check my new store out!
