Tips for Etsiers!

Ok, I'm not quite sure how many Etsians will read this but I think this could be really helpful.

The website Let's Ets offers a great way to get your products out onto Google! Definitely check it out!

Also, this thread has some other awesome ideas!

Hopefully it brings both you and I some success in the lull of the holiday season!

Unfortunate Events : (

Well, as some might know from the hugs forum on Etsy...

I've been laid off of my job. Due to the "economy crisis" they had to terminate more than half of my department. Happy holidays, right? So currently my only source of income is babysitting and my Etsy store, both which have proven to be far from lucrative.

Sigh... this season has not been that merry.

Midterms and Sales

Hi everyone and anyone that might wander onto here!

Nothing super exciting lately! I've successfully taken all of my midterms without failing any, woot! My worst grade was a C+ in my C++ programming class (ironic right!) but that is because I was blindsighted with some of the quesions.

As far as sales, I've been very fortunate in my opinion. I've had eight sales so far from all different areas around the world. It's really exciting for me. I'm just hoping for two things:

1) USPS to deliver correctly and fastly to my wonderful customers (especially international!)

2) Business remains well during the next few months with the holiday season approaching!

Not feeling too well today and I had to miss my classes : ( but hopefully I'll be feeling more with it in the next few days. I really need to make more product!

Not so well...

Nothing new and exciting in the world of selling for me. I'm still sitting on my third sale.

If anyone were to see this, I would just like to share a small story about a wonderful group of people on Etsy. We have a wonderful forum called "Hugs" that you can find here -> . Everyone is so nice and friendly there. If you are new to Etsy, I'd definitely recommend joining the group, there's a lot of lessons that can be learned from them!

That's all for now, I'll keep posting. :)

Sales, sales, sales...

Hi anyone and everyone who might see this!

Since my last post, I have sold three items! I'm really excited because I sold an international item too! Australia, baby!

Anyway, just keeping this blog updated. If you found this blog, let me know how! Thanks!

Welcome to My Craft

Alrighty, It's time to get down to business, literally!

I'm the proud owner of a small online story through the wonderful Etsy. In a nutshell, Etsy is an online market where crafters of all kinds can sell their handmade crafts. It can range from jewelry, art, clothing, purses, home decor, you name it. I just created my own "storefront" there and here is the link to it:


My craft is jewelry. Not big on the beading but resin is my thing. I love casting, especially when I'm working with my favorite material, electrical components! Friends and family have described it as "nerdy" or "geeky" but I'm totally in love with every piece I post. Please check it out and let me know what you think!

Attached is an image of one of my pieces, but you'll need to check the store out for some more!


Hello World

Just as computer programers begin there career in computer science, I would like to introduce myself and my craft with a friendly...

"Hello World" <<>

(Thought I should throw that in there as well)
