Happy New Year, 2015
I wanted to wish all my faithful blog readers a Happy New Year, actually a bit belated, but better late than never they say. And I wanted to update you on the changes I have made in my Etsy shop. The new banner is up, and I have added a photo of my smiling face on my profile.
I have started to add part numbers to the products and made sure to label them all so that when a purchase is made, I send the right one. Since I plan to add much more to my shop in the upcoming weeks, I do not want to get everything mixed up. You will eventually find the part number at the bottom of each product description. So far, only one section has been completed.
Some minor changes have been made to my profile blurb but I plan to take a closer look at it this week. I’m still not entirely happy with it. If you have any suggestions, please pass them along to me in the comments section. To see what I have posted now, click here.
The biggest job is going to be taking all new photographs of the current products listed and getting them uploaded to the Etsy shop. That is going to take a bit of time and there is a learning curve involved too. I will be experimenting and refining my technique as I go along.
I need to take a serious look at my ability (or inability) to attend events this year. I no longer have the equipment or the help I need to do them. The first hurdle to jump over is the expense of a new sleeping tent and air mattress (for those overnight events) and a 10’ X 10’ canopy to be used as my ‘shop’. I’m starting to watch the ads for sales but I’m not sure that I will financially be able to purchase everything that I need in time for this season. There is always next year, right?
So, big changes, new challenges, and much more are ahead for 2015. I wish you all a happy, healthy and prosperous new year in every way.
