My Very First Treasury on Etsy

I have tried before, or I am at work when Etsy Treasury is available, I have waited only to lose a spot because I wasn't fast enough but today, I got a Treasury. I again prepared my title and my spots then waited, the number dropped slowly to 333, there were 542 people waiting for a spot but when it dropped from 333, the option opened up for me to make a Treasury. I am so excited! I made a Treasury on things made from Tina Givens Fabric. It is very colorful and there are so many different items. Come check it out! hope you like it.

Got me a new computer!

I took my old computer to be updated and she sd how old is this computer, I told her it was 5 years old, she sd you don't have much "Ram" left, we can't even remove enough off of it to speed up your computer, you need to get more "Ram". Since I am so Computer Savey all I could say is how much will that cost and will I lose any thing I have on my computer. She laughed at me! Told me ram is not the hard drive. Anyway while I was there I found a computer I wanted and had the old one updated, so now I have 2. Just what I need. Maybe I can hook both of them up and do twice as much work. Maybe my Crafting business will flourish and I will be able use both computers. I haven't sold any boards and I haven't made any more boards, I have been busy sewing for my granddaughter.

Rain, Rain Go Away!!

It is raining again, hope it doesn't rain tomorrow. I didn't realize that I had not posted since last weekend. I have been busy getting ready for inventory at work and sewing clothes for my granddaughter that I have not thought to post. It is difficult to post something new because I am not really a blogger. It is hard for me to talk about my shop or my boards without saying the same thing over and over. I have some childrens boards that I have made, they were pretty popular when I first made them but I haven't sold any in a while. Here is my Cars Boards.

Hooray! I have a day off!

I am so looking for a day off, I will have a lot to do but I am ready to be off of work and just taking my time doing what I want to do. Cupkake Artillery is doing a giveaway for me. It will be one of my boards I am excited to see who will win and if they will like it. Go to her blog to sign up for the free memory board.
Check out my boards on I think you will find my boards are a very good quality. Maybe I will build another board this week, if I find a fabric that I really like. Do you have any suggestions?

Who tweets on Twitter?

I think I am becoming addicted to Twitter. I joined to open the possibilities of more sales and now I am hooked. Today Silkfair featured one of my boards on Twitter, which they have done before but it really made my day. I haven't even been able to get on the front page of Etsy and Silkfair has featured me on the front page, plus has mentioned my store or a board several times. Don't get me wrong I love Etsy and I have had lots of sales on Etsy but I would like to be recognized once in a while. I worked on my Silkfair store and Artfire store today. I think I have a cute product but I am just not reaching my customers. Anyway Twitter is becoming a part of my life even if I don't have anything to talk abt it is interesting to see what some people have to say. Check out this board! This is my Cabin Fever Board.

Too Pretty to Be Stuck Inside!

I just can't believe that it was 78 now it must 60, it was beautiful, warm & sunny and I was cleaning house, washing clothes and thinking I really ought to be out side catching some rays. But now it is still sunny but very cool, and the wind is blowing. I haven't worked on any boards lately or sold any boards lately. I have been on twitter, relisted, blogged tried everything I can think of and haven't made a sale. I have reading up on CPSIA and have decided to take my burp cloths out of my Kaysbaby shop and leave my diaper stacker. I just don't think I will be keeping my baby store open long. I guess we shall see.

Cupkake is up and running

Well, she has her own web site now and is up and running. She is selling her Pez Earrings! These are so cute. Check out her blog and give her some support. She needs to know that she is loved! Here is one set!

Whats the Deal?

I finally figured out how to use Google Analyics, I hooked it up to my Etsy store. It is fun to check it out but I found that when I list new boards on my site I get more visits to my store than when I relist older boards. I wonder if that is because I have relisted them so many times that they have been seen or if they just aren't what people are looking for! I listed Tina Givens fabric boards the last time and had lots of views. What do you think? My other crafting sites have not been as popular as etsy. I think Etsy advertises more. Anyway I am all for Google Analyics! It is just fun to check out my stats.
