Double Duty

I went up to the studio to find a button for a coffee cup cuff (say that 3 times fast!) that I just finished crocheting. After I found the perfect one, and vintage at that, I had alot to carry downstairs so I absent mindedly put the cuff on my wrist. Hmmmm!!! Looked pretty darn good and even DH noticed. So the coffee cup cuff is now also a wrist cuff. I'm sure I'm not the first to discover this phenomenon-I'm getting carried away- but I think it's pretty cool~put the cuff on your coffee and when you're finished drinking, then wear it. Just don't throw it away!

Keep 'em comin'!!!!

End of a great week~sales wise. A few on etsy, re-order from a store and 4 semi-biggies in real life. My question, nagging thought....how do you sell something online that is "so much better in person"? If I hear that one more time....aarrrgghhh!
It's particularly regarding my magnetic bookmarks. Everyone who sees them in person flips for them and it can almost be said that they're selling like hotcakes-offline. Online, my one sale, and yes, it was huge, but still only amounts to one sale. I have a friend coming on Monday who wants a dozen, 12, after I gifted one to her. Well, I'll keep plugging and hope that next week is equal to this week.

A New Item

A few weeks ago I was lurking in the etsy forums and a shop owner, RareDaisyJewelry was asking about promo matchbook pads. I 'aggressively' convoed her and subsequently she ordered 25 pads and stickers and was thrilled with the order. She suggested I sell them in my shop. Well, I do have a ton of paper so I made up some more and listed them. I have sold them offline and continue to do so and now they're up for grabs on etsy. And who bought one of the batches today? RareDaisyJewelry!!!
Thank you, RareDaisyJewelry, for the orders and giving me a push in another direction and lightening my paper load! Visit her shop~beautiful designs!

I have been on ETSY for almost 3 years and have never been a featured seller or on the front page. But Zibbet likes me, they really like me (Thank you Sally Field!)
Look here for my clock in the middle and then scoll down. Whoo Hoo!!! Doing a happy cha-cha-cha! I ♥ Zibbet! By the way, if you join Zibbet and mention my name we both benefit. It is a great site.
