Monday struggles = Etsy 101
How’s this for braveheart Monday. I’ve dedicated most of today to learning how to…and concurrently starting that long talked about Etsy shop. (because what’s the point of actually reading the directions if you don’t follow them at the same time…lol) Gosh, but it’s confusing.
All of you who have Etsy shops out there, how did you ever do it!??!
In preparation for all of this I bought Jeanne Oliver’s ecourse: Building a Creatively Made Business. I bought it ages ago and so I figure I better use the info before I run out of time. 🙂 I must say it’s a brilliant little course and I’m learning a lot from her. Also in preparation for this I cleaned up the house…as you do…picked some last garden dahlias and bought some chrysanthemums. (because one must always start difficult projects with beautiful flowers, don’t you think so?)
Also, as rain is coming overnight, this was waiting for me this morning. No, not the cats, they wait for no one…lol. Look beyond them to that carpet of leaves. Still, not as bad as poor Robert who has to deal with the seven 100 ft maples all on his own. But then, there’s a riding mower at West Cottage and only girl power here.
So I worked and learned and learned and worked and ran off to the bank, the gym, and home again for lunch and to work and learn some more. I looked up examples and read thru millions of websites for hints and idea, and raked up the leaves and drank plenty of tea and I think I’m pretty close now. Of course I’ve lost the light now, so the things which are left are: photographing everything, editing, posting, and getting thru all the financial stuff.
I tried to tell Morgan how impressed with myself I am, but, if there isn’t people food in it, she’s not interested. 🙂
Hope I’m ready for this. (Hope you’re ready for this 🙂 )
Linking with Mary for Mosaic Monday. 🙂
Boy there’s a lot of smiley faces on this post!
