Finally I have now managed to make some designs for my cards, actually make them into cards and list them in my three shops – that is a tedious process when you do it first time, but I assume that it gets easier the more you do!
In fact, I have come to the conclusion that I could spend every waking moment on my Mac, writing, blogging, Tweeting, Facebooking (is that a word?) and listing items and then never have time to make anything! Sometimes I wonder if it’s all worth it as I also try to get on the forums for Etsy and Folksy as this seems to make a huge difference to sales – the more you chat the more people check out your shop and hopefully buy something.
And do you know what, it certainly is! I listed my four new greetings cards designs on Friday just gone and on Sunday night a lovely lady bought three cards from my Etsy shop. Not a bad start eh! I am not getting too excited though as this happened to me when I very first set up my shop and that was the only sale I had, but here’s hoping.
So now I have four designs listed and I am very proud of them all. They are all different and I can’t wait to add some more – just need to make the pictures first though. A small shout out for one of the lesser well known (but hopefully not for long) websites where I sell my wares. WowThankYou is a really lovely website, full of gorgeous stuff, so take a look at mine (obviously) but also lots of other people and the beautiful work they produce. In fact I may well blog a favourites from WowThankYou to get you all going!
Anyway here are my four designs with links to the shops – I have divvied them up equally so all my shops get a mention. Comments, as always, very welcome.
