Sneak Preview!

Coming soon to my Etsy shop - Christmas ornaments! These still need the final touches but I'm pretty excited about them!

OMG! I am loving this gift guide. My husband is a scientist so all things nature are a hit at our house.

Progress!

Today was better... I finally got some new mats mounted and photographed. I'll list them on Etsy tomorrow.

Sneak preview here! I love these two mats. I think the autumn leaves one is really sophisticated and the bird one is so sweet (and I'm a cat person!).

Positive thoughts...

Unfortunately, today was about as unsuccessful as yesterday. My son has just been diagnosed with a whole host of food allergies which has sent out household into a tailspin.

Nevertheless, I'm still excited and still committed! I did get some great new mats made earlier in the week... I just need to finish mounting them, photographing them, and get them listed!

Meanwhile, I need to decide what my next shop line will be. Our tag line for the shop is 'Interesting things for the home' so that gives us the opportunity to try some different things to offer diversity to the shop, as well as keep us creatively challenged. I had some ideas for Christmas ornaments, but I've had some issues with the materials I wanted to use. I also have some interesting place mats I want to make... but committing myself to sewing things is a big leap of faith for me!

Decisions, decisions...

OK, off to catch up on blogs, twitter and whatnot. It's the least I can do today!

Need some time to focus!

Ugh! It's been a helluva week already. Today my husband's car caught fire, my bank card didn't work, I had to take my son for more allergy tests, and a bird pooped on me.

I want a redo.

Needless to say, not much Etsy stuff happening today. I'm feeling simultaneously frustrated and exhausted.

Blah.

Hopefully tomorrow will be better.

My latest venture...

Some of you will know that this is hardly my first foray into blogging. With any luck, I'll be better at this one than I have been with others. The title of this blog says it all... my intentions are always good, but I am The Queen of Procrastination. Now that I am serious about my Etsy shop and my crafts, well, The Queen of Procraftination was born!

I hope that not only will I be able to use this blog to showcase my own crafts, shop successes and failures, but also showcase fellow crafters-in-arms, too!

There's been a lot of buzz in the Etsy forums lately for us new sellers and sellers who haven't got where they want to be yet. So here's a shout out to the lovely ladies at The Etsy 'D' List and The Hippie Chick's Etsy Blog who have gone gangbusters with their ideas for giving some Etsy newbies the support they are looking for! Thanks!
