Open for Business!

Hello my friends! I'm sorry if I've left you hanging the past few days. I've been creating, really, just nothing I am able to post yet. Secret gifts...the best kind! ;) Plus, school is in full swing so from here to May, I may be a little hit and miss from time to time.

Ahem! I have an announcement to make...drum roll please, cue the lights...I officially have an Etsy shop! How exciting huh?! You may have one of the following responses, "What the heck is Etsy?" or "Duh, where have you been?!" For those of you who don't know Etsy, let me explain.

Etsy is a website, much in the way of eBay, only much, much better and cooler. Items for sale on Etsy are not bid on, you simply purchase them for the price listed. And the best part of all...everything is HANDMADE!! Or if its not handmade, its something you can buy to use to make something handmade. Isn't it great?! Anyone that knows me knows that I am a huge promoter for handmade items and will happily pay more just because its handmade. I am so excited to see my small dream come to fruition.

Now, let me first say that as of right this very minute, there's only one item listed. :) I have to start somewhere right?! But don't worry, I'm sure the virtual shelves will fill up in no time. I have to say, I was so excited when I opened the account, then I was bursting at the seems when I found out how to use Photo Shop to create my Twin Sisters banner, and now I'm ecstatic that I finally have something listed and can tell you all about it! So spread the Etsy bug and tell all of your friends! What are you waiting for, go buy something handmade!!

well congrats for selling your item before I got there to check it out! LOL Etsy is a new word for me - I can see I have much to learn in the blogging world (along with Photoshop too!) Best of luck to you!! I'm so glad there are others out there who enjoy handmade items as much as I do:)
