New jewelry line

Straycatfarm on Etsy has now added jewelry to our line.
For those of you who have stopped by our booth at craft shows, you know we have made and sold jewelry for several years.
The favorite part of making the jewelry is searching for stones that are different and colorful.
We enjoy going to the rock shops in our state and digging through piles of stones and rocks to find something special.
Most of our jewelry has magnetic clasps as it is so much easier for everyone to use.
We make most of the chains around the 20 to 22 inch length but we can often make the chains longer or shorter if you prefer.
Stop by our shop at take a look.

Our hanging crocheted top  towels are all moving to our other shop

Clark Creations was a vendor at a craft show I did this weekend.   I have done other shows with her in the past and not only is she a fun person to talk to and spend time with but she also makes a wonderful product.
This is how she describes her products

Like most of you, I am confused on the best way to advertise my shops and get the word out there that I do have a quality product at a fair price.
I don't twitter anymore as I was mostly getting bot views from that and never knew what to say.
Facebook. I do put a few things on Facebook but wondering how to get more followers to your facebook page.
Anyone want to follow me I am
Let me know and I will follow you back.
We do treasuries and they are fun and do help us meet new friends on Etsy and I do belong to two teams
We do lots of craft shows and pass out business cards.
Sales are always great at shows because people can feel the quality of our towels and search through piles for a pattern that works for them.
We sell quite a few at shows as wedding and shower gifts and the favorite is a combination of towels such as, Christmas, spring, winter, Easter, or any combination looks fun.
Always working on pictures and that is quite a challenge, which I think you will all agree.
So any stories of sucess you would like to share with us, we would love to hear.

Wonder if I am the only one here who has a blog and forgets to blog or is so busy doing other projects that they just don't seem to have time.
What does it take to make us motivated to get in there and actually write the blog?
I can see where it is a great way to share ideas and thoughts and find out new craft ideas and where the best craft shows are.
Keeping busy with my Etsy shop
Have a website too but it needs far more work to make a good website and I just don't have those web design skills.
It is not easy to come up with topics to blog about either. Where do you get inspiration for your blogs.
Going to try harder to take some time and blog and read others blogs as they are often not only fun to read but inspiring.
