Establishing an Etsy Presence

I am trying to get my act together.  My favorite blog/graphics designer Michelle at created an Etsy banner and avatar for me.  I just ordered an inexpensive light tent kit to help me take better inventory pictures.  I've been reading articles on Etsy and learned that the quality of your pictures is super important when presenting items for sale (makes sense).  Next, I will begin to unearth my treasures from the black hole that is my garage and get them ready to photograph.  I have spring break vacation soon and plan to make some headway.  Wish me luck!

Happy Spring!

Sssshh! Don't tell...

 I'm alive and well and enjoying a day off from work- hooray!  Can you keep a secret?  Please don't tell my hubby.  I spent the day thrifting- four Goodwills and one Salvation Army.  I came home with a few items and some like-new games which I will save for the local Christmas giving tree.  On the 15th of the month, Goodwill has a scratch-off savings card which offers 10%, 15% or 20% off your total.  Can't beat the extra savings.

Did you hear that Google Reader is going bye-bye on July 1?  Last night, I seamlessly transferred my blog reading list to "feedly."  I hope I made a good choice- we'll see....

Happy St. Patrick's Day weekend!
