busy little bee

I added beads to my shop this week. This is the most sales I have had. I think I am up to 7. Looking into adding even more beads soon. I have been asking some people in the chat rooms what they think I should add.

Today I also handed out 100+ business cards at a craft show in Lake Geneva. Hopefully that will increase sales a bit.

Yesterday I finally went to organize my classroom. Thankfully B helped me get some things in order. I need to go again tomorrow. Why am I not motivated to go back to schoo? Maybe by next week.

We have also been busy in the yard. The berms are looking a little better. We have so much left over dirt from the patio project I don't know what to do with it. The tomato plants are looking good. There are probably more than 100 tiny tomatoes on them. Several have ripened already so I have been eating them on my sandwiches. The corn plants look like something out of Green Acres! LOL

Yesterday I passed out some more business cards. I also added Halloween stamps and more birthday cards to my site. Next week I am going to Lake Geneva to pass out more cards to tourists. Maybe one of these days it will result in more sales.

2 more sales

Yesterday I had two more sales. I was pretty excited about it. The featured seller game on etsy is pretty helpful. The items that sold were a bag of die cut circles and a thank you card. I am thinking of adding mini thank you cards to the shop for sellers to send out with purchases. Birthday cards might be a good addition. 6 people have signed up for my e-mail about beads so hopefully that will generate some sales.

Any other suggestions on what to add to the shop?

My video

Check out my video.


I added some cards to my shop. Someone from bookcrossing was interested in buying some thank you cards from my shop. We shall see what happens. I plan to look at some websites for more card design ideas.

What am I working on now?

I am going to work on more jewelry today. I ordered a lot of beads the other day and am anxiously waiting for them to come in the mail. The plan is to use some of them in my jewelry and sell the rest on line. Any suggestions on bracelet designs? I usually just create my own.
