Etsy at Last!

Well, I finally did it.  After a few years of THINKING about it, tonight I officially opened up my Etsy shop.  For those of you saying "Etsy?  What the ---k is ETSY?" let me explain.  Etsy.com is a virtual marketplace for all things handmade.  And vintage.  Or both.

It's a place where artists can showcase their wares and hopefully land an audience that wants to buy their handmade goods.  Tonight I started my shop with three items -- all three of which you've seen already on this blog.  It's slow starting on Etsy, just as it's SLOW when you set out to create a successful blog.  Right now I'm working on both and whatever happens, happens.  Bottom line is I'm happy doing it and that's enough for me.  Although it WOULD be nice if my Etsy site became popular and lucrative -- not! lol!  

We're in the midst of a wicked snowstorm here in Chicagoland and we're just waiting to see what happens next.  Perhaps no school tomorrow?  Gotta love that 6:00 am wake-up call from the principal telling you school is closed for the day.  Yay! say the kids.  Not so much, says the mom.....we're already over 20 inches and counting for the season so far.  Who knew I'd end up living in glacierland?

I haven't figured out how to add an Etsy sign onto my sidebar yet so until I do I'll end all my posts with my Etsy site address: please go to www.LoveYouMoreDesigns.etsy.com and check it out.  Visit often to see what's been added and what's to come.  Way late and time to go for now. Ciao.
