My adventures on the information superhighway...

This blog chronicles the activities of my Etsy and Artfire shops, and my adventures as both a jewelry designer and information specialist.

Quiet day and some reflections...

Just a short post today, a few reflections, and no pictures.

I listed my Smoky quartz earrings and Tartan bracelet last night. They were featured in my previous blog post. They've gotten a few hearts and some views, so I hope they do well.

My husband is on a business trip this week leaving me alone with the little bear, who is sick, so I'm not getting as much done as I thought I would, but I did manage to create another bracelet today which I hope to list soon. I haven't quite decided if it's "done" or not.

Also, I was featured in another treasury again today, curated by one of my team members, Soapstarcanada. You can see it here: http://www.etsy.com/treasury_list_west.php?room_id=87464

Curating my own treasury remains an elusive goal, even though I have a Word doc and Etsy poster tool full of beautiful pieces all ready to go. Hopefully, I'll be able to snag one sometime this week. Which brings me to my final point.

Although I took the plunge and set up this blog and a rather sorry-looking Facebook page, it's really only my team members - from the wonderful OhCanada! team - that have been looking at either one. I don't mind, as I needed the practice and skill development, but I have to say that joining a team is the single most influential thing so far in the life of my shop. I joined Etsy (as a seller) in March of 2009, though I didn't set up my shop until the following fall. Between Sept. and Dec. I sold four things. I figured, well, I'm new, it's a learning process...since joining the OhCanada! team I've sold 4 more things! When they say you should join a team, they're right. Also, I've met an amazing group of artisans, and am really enjoying the sense of community that comes from being part of a team. So, thanks guys!
