Well, I said I was aiming to have an Etsy shop all set up by January 15th and it is January 15th today…. I have 20 items listed (and several more waiting to be added) so I’m feeling pleased with myself. I will have to set deadlines for everything… You can see a preview of some of them on the ‘Etsy Mini’ on my sidebar to the left or click here to see the whole thing.
For those of you who are wondering what on earth Etsy is, it is like a giant craft fair, or a sort of Ebay for handmade goods. It is based in the US and prices are in US dollars but you can pay by credit card through Paypal even if you don’t have a Paypal account. There are loads of UK sellers – I’m on the UK sellers street team. A list of UK sellers are here. I’m also on another street team which Marion from Artmixter kindly told me about – it is for Boomers, or over 40s! They have a blogring which you can click round from the link lower down the left sidebar (these sidebars are getting seriously crowded!!).
I have been doing lots more towards my screenprinting and have just taken photos but I’ll leave you in suspense till tomorrow for that… Today I have been preparing some screens for deconstructed screen printing.
