Jewelry making

I've been crafting a lot this week, trying to stock my shop for Christmas! I worked on some new jewelry to update with!

Here is an upcycled necklace I made using a vintage metal filigree medallion. I added the chain and the dangle bead and sparrow.

Christmas is coming!!

To get ready for Christmas I've made some new gift tags! A lot were made using my new favorite designer paper ,Cosmo Cricket! They have the best designs! I plan on adding more items to my shop within the next few weeks. Probably some more seasonal items and other random goodies that would make great gifts. I'll be sure to blog about it! :D

Playing with dolls

As mentioned in my previous posts, I haven't been very productive. It seems like the new doll arrival has taken up a lot of my time! But I did make a nice little headband for a fellow Blythe lover. Made with genuine Swarovski crystal beads and butterfly accent. Story got to model it.

Trying to get more traffic

So I am trying to think of ways to get more traffic to my etsy and my blog. I was thinking of doing a link exchange for etsy shops. Basically, I will link your site on my blog under the "Etsy Shop Link Exchange" list if you link back to my etsy shop on your blog. Anyone interested? Just leave me a comment and let me know!

Look Ma, it's a box!

While watching the debate last night, I made some gift boxes to get ready for the holiday rush (at least, I hope there will be a rush)! I recycled some Starbucks nutritional facts pamphlets and also used some extra scrapbook paper I had. Hopefully I will get some sales soon so I can send them out in these snazzy boxes!

Is anyone going to offer gift wrapping or anything extra for the holidays?

not being productive

I have been really slacking the past week with my shop. I haven't done much promotion or updating in a while. I'm planning on going back to college in January and I've been busy studying for my math placement test and looking for scholarships. Plus, I've been spending more time on doll things. I have three hats I need to knit and a headband to make, so it hasn't given me a lot of time for the human goods. And next week I am going to Georgia for about 4 days to visit my family as an early birthday celebration. And as an early birthday gift to myself, I bought Miss Sally Rice! I really love her...

Almost forgot!

I also uploaded these a few days ago. It's my first "set" of cards. I had a lot of fun making them. I really love the Asian inspired paper that I found to use. Oh yes, and they all come with matching envelope seals!

More cards

I've been making cards like mad the past few weeks. I am slowly adding them to my etsy. I'm trying to see if updating once or twice every day will actually bring more sales to my shop. Normally I just add everything at once. In any case, here are the two I uploaded last night.

Halloween Cards!

Made some Halloween cards. I've got enough to make multiple copies, but I figured I would see how these sell first before I go listing a bunch! Here's the first three designs.

Kitsch time!

Really, what's not to love about wonderful kitschy things? It always brings a smile to my face to see a pair of pink flamingos in someone's yard or a little old lady rockin' a blue beehive like it was 1962. My favorite kitschy place to visit on the web is LaLa Land.

I promise you, your head will explode from all of the fabulously tacky things. And she even has a shop devoted to all things Kitsch! And something else that makes her equally awesome; she loves Blythe dolls as much as I do.

And in my quest to bring more funky, retro items to the world, I've made these two new sets of gift tags for my etsy shop.

Another treasury!

Wheee!! I woke up to find that my purple and green garden stickers were featured in another treasury. So far I've been in three but still haven't had any sales come from them! But it's still good promotion!

I especially love the bookmark from ShopBub and the flower brooch from Accessoire.

Another treasury feature

Being part of the INCrowd Etsy Street Team has really helped to give my shop some more exposure. Still haven't gotten any sales in almost a week but I'm still hoping things will pick up!

Another treasury!

Just a few things...

I updated the shop yesterday with a few new tags and sticker sheets. Sales have been really slow. I haven't sold anything in 5 days even though I've had two batches of updates. Any advice on how to get more sales? I'm trying to promote as much as possible on etsy forums, flickr, and the blog. I've also included my site in some search engines. I still only seem to get about 20 views a day! Everyone keeps saying to give it time and the sales will come. I just hope they're right!!

And so this isn't a text only post, here's a few photos.

Mmmmm... these look good enough to eat!

Felted Wrist Corset!

I began knitting about a year ago and still consider myself kind of an amateur. I can't do amazing color work or shaping like some people, but I am always trying to learn new things and improve. I was watching the Olympics the other night and felt the need to knit. I just casted on without anything in mind and this is what I came up with.

I am just beside myself. Even though it's very simple, I think it's totally cool.
