Finally getting some items listed on zibbet. Seems pretty easy to use, now let us see if we get sales.
Just started a new twitter today too.
Now as soon I can figure out how to post on it I will. Wish I was part of the younger generation that understands computers.
Stop by and become a follower of my twitter and we can share.

This morning I took another step for my business. I opened an account at zibbet. They let you put 25 items on at no charge so I am working on listing today. The more places that you have to show your work, the better chance you have of selling.
Stop by my shop at zibbet
Maybe it would work for some of you to showcase your handcrafted items also.
If we all work together and share ideas, then we can all be successful.
Also don't forget to check out my jewelry at half price

Now that the Christmas sales time is over, it is time to look at my store and restock after the holidays. I need to get out into the stores and find some good sales on towels and get busy crocheting.
Since my husband has decided not to do the jewelry any longer, I shall need some new ideas to fill my store.
We have planned a lot of new craft shows this year and I really look forward to those. Many times the customers and vendors have not heard of Etsy and I get to hand out cards and tell them about the really talented crafters on Etsy.
What are you doing to get your etsy store ready for the new year.

Day After Christmas

Yesterday was a special day for many reasons but the best was sitting around the table having a meal and sharing good memories with family. Guess that means I am getting older now that the family meal means more then the presents.
It is so much fun to watch the eyes of the young ones in the family as they open their Santa gifts.
Hope everyone has some special memoires of yesterday and please share them with us as we would love to hear what makes your holiday special to you.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone. I hope this Christmas will be a special one spent with friends and family for each of you. We will be spending our day with our family and talking to those who could not make it home.
A special Merry Christmas to all the new Etsy friends I have found also.

We did a lot of craft shows this summer and we have been selling jewelry at the shows. Well, as all of you know, there are a lot of crafters selling jewelry so we are going to run a clearance sale on ours on our etsy store.
My husband made all the jewelry and he really does not have time to make it anymore because his radio control airplane business is taking up a lot of his time.
So keep on eye on our etsy store over the next few days and see what specials we are offering.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas week.

Etsy Store

Been looking at my etsy store
and wondering what I can do to improve it. Yes, I do need more product and am working on that daily.
Been working on pictures and I think that some of them are pretty good now.
Just had a new banner made.
Any suggestions on what I can do to improve my website and would love to have any of you become a follower of my blog and I would love to become a follower of yours.

New Ideas

My Mom and I did craft shows for years and years both here in Michigan and in Arizona. Now my Mom passed on last year at 95, and I am still doing lots of craft shows with my towels. I enjoy doing the towels but not so much the search for affordable ones to do which takes me all over the state.
We do about 12 shows a year and the towels sell really well. My husband was making jewelry but there is such a competition for sales that he is now going back to his real love of radio control airplanes. You can see him at
As the new year starts I want to find a new product for me to go with my towels and that is the beginning of a new adventure searching for something new and fun to make.
Open for suggestions and in the meantime I am off searching the net for new ideas.

Wed Morning

Morning. I hope it is ok if I do a little bragging about my sister this morning. She makes critter quilts and they are so cute and can be used for more then critters. She is a wonderful quilter and does an awesome job on them.
Not only does she sell ready made but customizes them in color for what ever the cat or dog would prefer.
Her cat Misty is the head quality control person over at her house.
She already has a successful business selling on our website, etsy, her website and at shows so I think it is ok to say how proud I am of her.
Check out her store at

Is anyone as excited about Christmas as I am? I love so many things about the holidays.
The smiles and laughter of the children, the friendly way strangers say hi or Merry Christmas to each other.
The decorated trees, music, outside decorations on the neighbors houses.
The wrapped presents under the tree.
I won't mention the religous part of Christmas as many have different beliefs.
This is such a magical time of year for all ages.
Are you has happy about the holidays as I am?

This is fun

Thank you to everyone who helped me start this and I know I have a long way to go. This should be a lot of fun and a way to keep in touch with the terrific people I am meeting on Etsy.

HI, New to blogging
