Etsy Front Page

What a surprise when I checked my Etsy shop yesterday afternoon and found that I had been on the front page of Etsy earlier on that day. I had never been on the front page and really never thought I would be.
Although our soapdishes have been selling well, they have been selling even better since being on the front page of Etsy!
Thanks to a wonderul Etsian, Yaelfran for including me in her beautiful treasury. Please check out Yaelfran's shop.

Setting up an Etsy Shop

Setting up an Etsy shop is actually very easy, but getting sales is the tough part. You really have to work at it!

I've been using Flickr to post pics of some of my work and to find other people who enjoy the art as much as I do. By joining various groups I've met so many other people on Flickr with the same interest.

I also belong to a local guild that is wonderful at promoting each others ideas.

My next foray into business will be to formally open my yarn shop! Its an exciting but daunting project!

Some yarns that absolutely "ROCK"

I've been playing with the ROCK yarn from SouthWest Trading Company for about a month now and I absolutely love it! I used "Prince" to make a wonderful butterfly shawl.. what a nice feel this yarn has.
This yarn can be purchased in my Etsy shop . At the time of writing, there are all colours available... from Black and grey, to vibrant reds, blues, and greens and all the colours in between.
