Look how much better my pictures are getting! And I'm in another treasury! http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list.php?room_id=23123 How exciting... My name is getting out there!
This is the shop for the wonderful person who put me in the treasury: http://thepeachtree.etsy.com
I'm spending the entire weekend at my parent's house for Thanksgiving, I miss them so much! I'm planning on bringing a TUB of yarn and creating at least five new items for my shop. I'd also like to take my pictures again. Constant improvement!
My goal for the weekend is:
Retake pictures and edit existing listings
List new pink armwarmers
List new plum armwarmers
Create and list maroon scarflette
Create grey cowl for Mum
Create teal mohair cell case for Kristie
Hopefully this will result in my first sale! I just have to stay off Mum's Xbox!

I'm in a treasury! Here it is: http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list.php?room_id=22322 It was listed by this wonderful etsyan: http://deelind.etsy.com.
I'm sad to say my etsy shop looks the same as it did a week ago. I had such plans! I was going to crochet an item a day, post on forums for 3 hours a day, and sell sell sell! Crazy, huh? I forgot to factor in the TIME it takes!
One good thing though, a very good thing! I had made a pair of my little wristwarmers as a gift from my mom to a friend of hers at work, and that got me two new fingerless glove orders. My mom received the gloves, gave them to the ladies they were intended for and I had five new orders 20 minutes later! FIVE!! In 20 minutes! Can you tell I'm excited yet??
I'm hard at work on the new gloves but missing my etsy shop. I want to post more items... but I'll have plenty of time for that later. Right now... my crochet needle awaits!

Today I opened my very own Etsy shop, my place for MY crafts! I've been lurking on Etsy for ages now, reading blogs, viewing items, planning, plotting, and then more planning. Finally I decided it's time to stop procrastinating and start crocheting!
I plan to keep this blog as a record of my success *crosses fingers* and hopefully to learn from my mistakes!
I think my main problem right now is my photos. I KNOW I made a great product, but who can tell! I have to read more photo how-tos, and of course accept criticism. Anybody? Really, anybody??
