My New Shop

I just wanted to let you know that my new shop over at Etsy is now open for business! For those of you who don’t know, Etsy is a great website where artists and crafters can create their own shops for pennies. The only requirement is that everything be handmade by the seller.

I am still getting the hang of it, so any comments you have would be greatly appreciated. One problem I’m having is that the thumbnails can only be square, so I’m not sure how to handle rectangular artwork because it doesn’t seem like you can upload the thumbnail separately from the full size picture. Does anyone know anything about this? You will probably notice some of my thumbnails look a little cut off.

Also, wordpress does not seem to have an Etsy widget!!??! So, I have put a little button in my sidebar until I figure out what to do.

Aside from these gripes, I am pretty darn excited to have finally started my shop! I’ve been chipping away at all of these little details about it for a while, and finally, I had to just say, “what the hey, I’m just going to do it and learn along the way!” Within minutes, one of my newly posted items had been viewed 14 times! Etsy is hot!
