Why have sales slowed?

I was selling boards several each month but I haven't had a nibble lately. I wonder why. The economy hasn't stopped my boards from selling like I thought it would. It just seems that I haven't had the stir I was having. I posted some new boards on Etsy Sunday and hoped this would stir the pot. See what you think. This is a Tina Givens Fabric. I love the colors! Couldn't help make a board out of her fabric.

I am on Twitter, I was beginning to wonder what the deal was everyday I had at least 15 new followers. It just seemed unusual to me because I usually get 1 or 2 a day. It is easier for me to twitter than to blog. I love Esty and lots of people on Twitter are Etsy Craftsters! It has been a great way to meet people and see crafts that I might not have seen on Etsy. I made another Gingham Board, this time Pink & Brown, I put pink roses on it with pink ribbon.

New Board by Melissa Averinos Fabric

What do you know about Melissa Averino's Fabric? Her fabrics are so colorful and fun. I did this board in one of her fabrics and I love it.

I used orange ribbon and blue ball buttons. What do you think?

Loving My Day Off!

It is a great day in the neighborhood, the sun is shinning. I need to retake some pics of my boards and get them on line, I think they will look better if I have the sun shining on them. What do you thik of my College boards? I enjoy making college boards. I think my Longhorns board is my most requested board. My daughter loves the Longhorns, she wanted her bathroom done in Longhorn so I made her a shower curtain and towels. Here are a few that I make that you may not have seen.

Friday 13TH!!!

I have been trying to think of any reason not to go to work today but I have to go. My week has been so busy that if I took off today I would get further behind. I have been working on boards all week after work which I hope to get in my shops next week. I have ideas for boards and want to put some more boards in the shops. My dnl is opening her on web site so she has lagged behind in her Etsy shop but sd she will get it going again soon. I have been asked to put some of my boards on a internet magazine, which I have agreed to do. They will publish in May. I will add a link to my blog when it happens. Hope everyone has a good day.

Another Tuesday!

I have to go to a meeting in Shreveport today and I am trying to figure what time I need to leave to get there before 9 but not too early. I don't mind this drive, it is not as long as the drive use to be before I moved. It is just I don't get a day off this week because they are working on my store and I need to be there. I wonder how the economy is effecting other etsy people. Some say their sales have gone down, while mine have increased this month. Sales are slow at the store though. I am working on some new boards that I will post as soon as I get pics of them. I hope they will sell fast.

Sunday, Sunday!

I have been updating my items on Silkfair all day and it has taken so much time. I am trying to calculate international shipping and it is a booger. The usps site sets it so high that I feel that it is over what it should be, then I check two sites about international shipping and it is less. I don't know if I will have it right until I go to the PO to mail my packages. Paypal doesn't offer International First Class.

Tell Cupkakeartillery she needs to start selling these again. People love them!

Today's my birthday!!!!

Happy Birthday to me! I don't plan on a big party or even dinner out, just a nice evening at home! I sold 3 boards yesterday and that made my day even one of them goes to Malaysia. I had to build 2 of them but it is fun and I enjoy doing that. Now if I could only win a million today, I would be so happy, that would be the ultimate present. I gave myself broadband for my birthday and got rid of dialup. Ugh! hated it. When I called to have it turned of the guy asked my why and I sd I hate it! Everytime I wanted to get on the internet it would take 1 to 2 hours to get it working, then it would throw me off if I was idle too long. Anyway Happy Birthday to me!!!

Hooray! I am off tomorrow!!!!

I love my days off, I can find so many things to do that the day passes too fast. It is going to be warm so I can run around and do errands and really enjoy it. Come check out my stores and let me know what you think about my boards. I have had a few sales last month and really would like more. My grandkids called me tonight and they are so funny. They have so much to tell me then when I ask a question I can tell they are shaking their head yes or no thinking I can see what they are doing. They are so cute! Zoey will be 2 in may and Colt & Cannon will be 5 in June. They have grown so fast. Check out this board!

I'm Back!!!

I have transferred to another town with my job and with the economy like it is, I wonder if I did the right thing. I sold a lot of boards during December even though I had moved and had to locate everything that I needed to ship. It was stressful but now things are calming down and getting into a routine. As you know, I find blogging difficult. I am going to try to do this again. My DNL has let her Etsy shop dwindle to only a few items. I am thinking of closing my baby shop because of CPSIA. I am always looking for opportunities to sell my boards. Here are a couple of new ones I have put in my shops.
