My new Etsy shop

You may have noticed that I have changed my pages (the tabs along the top of the blog) so that they take you straight to my Etsy and MadeIt stores. I have added links to my stores for one simple reason; I am trying to sell stuff.

This year, due to funding cuts in the education department, I only have one day per week work (and full time study) which makes it hard to pay bills (something most of us are familiar with) so I began casting around for an income stream that would allow me to stay home (studying, gardening, crafting and blogging) and would make enough to pay the mortgage. I came up with selling my crafting efforts online.

I am selling my hand made knitted items, home spun wool, hand made soap and herbal ointments.

Please have a look at my wares so far and let me know what you think; I am looking for ways to improve my shop (and I love to read peoples comments).

  1. You're juggling a lot of things all at once, and I hope you're doing fine with all that stuff! I know owning a small starting shop takes a lot of effort to make successful, but never forget to take some well deserved R&R sometimes. I hope your Etsy shop prospers, your work certainly merits it!

  2. Hi Clint, Yes I am juggling a lot of things at once. Thanks for the lovely compliment too. I do find myself close to burn-out at regular intervals but when I feel that way I go out for a walk or take some time in the garden and I can go on.
