Happy Wednesday! I’m so excited about our Etsy shop!
It will open at 9 a.m. (eastern time) Thursday (tomorrow.) At that time, I will have a link up on my post and the Etsy widget on my sidebar. Meredith will have one on her blog, too. I’m crossing my fingers that all goes well; there is a learning curve to be dealt with as a new shop owner and I’m still smack in the middle of it all.
We’re starting with a modest amount of inventory. Everything is handmade and that takes time. So, please know that we are continuing to create new inventory and will list new items as soon as they are available. I know that everyone suggests having lots of inventory on hand before you open your shop. But you know what? If I waited for that, the shop would never open. I know that much about myself.
The Vintage section will open as soon as I can take pictures and list the inventory. I cannot tell you how wonderful it is to be working with my sister on this. We both have a lot of stress in our lives at the moment and creating something new and positive and hopeful together is just what we need.
The hyacinth has bloomed. Its scent is intoxicating. Whenever I need a bit of what I call shoulder-dropping, I head on over to the hyacinth and inhale. Aaaah.
It’s sunny today after a gray day yesterday. Our car is in the shop getting a new starter. I have to say that Hondas (this is my second) are great cars. In all of the eleven years we’ve owned it, nothing has gone wrong except for the usual maintenance things: new tires, new brake pads, new battery. So I can’t really complain when the starter needs to be replaced. Well, I can….but I won’t. I’m going for gratitude, instead.
Note: I’ve added the Linky Followers widget on my sidebar. There’s been much discussion about Google Friend Connect being discontinued on non-Blogger blogs. Whether it will eventually disappear on Blogger blogs, I don’t know. But I’m just a tad leery about the whole thing, as Google is pushing Google+ and eventually might want to use it instead of GFC. I’m not at all interested in Google+. Linky Followers was started by Brent, who I’ve worked with on my linky posts. He’s a great guy and very helpful. If you’re interested in learning more about it, visit Linky Followers. If you’re new to the blog and want to follow, choose whichever widget you prefer.
Have a great day, my friends.
