i have had a good week of selling things non shop based but etsy is still not selling after the first initail flurrish.
I think i need to do something radical, with my making and other things. Think i need a change, voluntary work, teacher exchange something completely different. To try and get the joy back.
Need to go and investiagte.

Interesting Times

Still had no sales on etsy but my head is clearer. Been a strange week though. Had a great morning at a wood fair, all things to do with wood funnily enough. Beautiful birds of prey there. Had to take some photographs.

New bags and bits

I must restock my shop. I have made many things but seem to be running out of steam with etsy. Think it is because I haven't had a sale for 2 months. Thing is I have got lots of orders and sales elsewhere so there is no reason for me to feel bothered by this, but I still do. My head is in many places at the moment. Winding down for the summer, getting ready for September. Thinking about life in general, do I be sensible or go crazy, splash out, save for things to come, go with my gut feeling, think ahead, weigh up everything????? Arrr tooooo many choices, someone to tell me the answers would be good. Only good thing is the doodles that have come from this pondering.

Here are a few of them. Maybe things will come clear if I don't overthink them. Doing the right thing from a choice of 2 right things is impossible. How can you choose.

Making side of things - My cards using my Gocco turned out fantastically and I sold quite a few at the fair.

I have shut my etsy shop for the weekend as I am going to a have a stall at a fair and then restock it with lots of new goodies. Also off to a one day festival - whooh the Mighty Boosh. I can't wait. There will be photos, new bags and special offers at the beginning of next week. Feeling pretty chipper.
