I'm on Etsy!

So I finally did it... I joined Etsy. I posted a few items to start for sale. I have a lot of ideas but still need to make samples to post. Funny thing is all the ideas I have and all of the ones I have actually implemented in the past are already for sale on Etsy! There are a lot of talented people on there. Way more talented than me, but I thought I'd give it a chance... you never know :)

I am actually in the middle of a special custom request project/sale and I am hoping to have it done this week and will be able to ship it!

Click here to my site... check back for new items!

Happy New Year!

It is that time of year again when I go and make promises or set goals for myself that I never seem to keep. So what will make this year any different?

Here I am and it's been months since I have even touched this blog. Where does the time go and why don't I ever have time for anything anymore?

Speaking of no time, I haven't scrapped and it kills me. I want to, I have pictures set aside and tons of ideas but just no time. And putting aside the time, I don't want to always dedicate my dinning room table to it because I have a hard time cleaning up. I just always say "well I am going to do it again tomorrow, why clean up" and then months later the mess is still there.

These past few months I made a bunch of Christmas ribbon tags (unfortunately I didn't take pictures of them) to sell at craft fairs and a local holiday shop. They were really cute... embellished circles with a punch of curled ribbon on top. A nice touch to a gift bag or wrapped gift but.... they didn't sell. I guess they weren't as cute as everyone told me they were :(

While I was making these tags, I thought I should get myself on Etsy. A part of me wants to because I like to create but then the other part of me doesn't because I don't think I am all that good. Yes Negative Nelly is in the room!

Putting all of this aside, I have to sit and make my goal list for this year. Goals for scrapping, organizing and the rest of my hectic life!

I will be back sooner than later and get everything in order!

Until then.... Happy Scrapping!
