This is supposed to be my craft blog, but I have not been doing anything crafty lately. The other night, the kids and I sat and painted some Christmas ornaments, but that has been about it. I remember when I used to crochet all the time, and make my signs. In fact, I still have to make room name signs for three of my nieces, and for the baby my sister has in January. I just can not find the time lately to do any of it.
I think it was almost two years ago that I opened my etsy store. I closed it a month or two later, because I never did get the hang of it. I never needed product packaging services because I hardly sold anything. My store was filled with my "welcome" and "name" signs, and they were really cute. I just didn't know then that you shouldn't list everything at one time, and that you had to re-list every couple of days to stay current in the listings. I know these things now, but I don't have the time now. Or the product. I sold every last sign at a yard sale last summer. All of my signs were hand carved and painted, so making more would be very time consuming. It's not like I can hire a vietnam manufacturing company to make them for me.
I am hoping that once the kids go back to school, I will find the time to be crafty again. I miss it. It relaxes me. And maybe once I get a few made, I can order custom plastic printing shipping supplies to ship my signs in.
That's assuming, of course, that I sell some this time.
