Holiday Weekend

Tuesday, June 01, 2010

I was forced to do very little this past Memorial Day weekend, I had a cold that I thought was steamrolling it's way into my body but midway through the day on Monday I felt all better - it never went full blown but I did have lots of quality book and hammock time trying to prevent it from doing so. The cushion was being washed so I had to settle for a blanket which suited me ok but was hard to keep in place!

As some of you may know, my Etsy shop has finally gone online - no sales yet but I have had views from 26 states and 8 countries in the 6 days which is encouraging - maybe the prices are too high, I don't know, but after taking into consideration the cost of materials I'm getting only about $5 per hour for my time LOL! Crazy really. I did manage to get 2 more done and listed in spite of feeling crappy. Maybe after I have a decent stock built up I might find a GOOD art/craft show and drag them out and see if I have better luck there....but that'll be awhile at the rate I'm going!
This video is hard for me to watch because it looks like they're lip syncing, but it's what I'm listening to right now on my iPod :o)

Glad you're feeling better!
Your new books are just GORGEOUS & I know you'll start selling soon.
I'm definitely a buyer, I just need to figure out which one I want. :)

Oh no, Susan, don't buy one from the shop....strangers buy them from there LOL
I'm not worried, either they will sell or they won't, if not - plan B!
