Etsy Store

How many Woman and men that make hand made things and crafts have and Etsy Store. I actually did a search for my diaper wipe cases and I found a few others that are doing the same things. I need to find a site that I am the only one making them lol wishful thinking. I wish that I knew if I was wasting my time or if it was worth it for me to keep at it. I dropped off a few at the baby resale store the other day with a flyer because I cant afford business cards yet. Hopefully that will pay off and they will not just get stolen off the counter top. We will see.

Another Day

Another day has gone by and I still have not sold any cases, I think that if I could just get one sale off my website or craiglist that I would be happy and it would really make me feel better. I am just wondering how long it will really take for me to get known. I did the fleece cover thinking that it was original and still not one hit. I did set up a myspace page for my website and Diaper wipe cases. Hopefully that will help. If you have myspace and want to add me.... I am cozy cuddlez as my display name.

Depressing




I just cant figure this craft stuff out. I have gone to some swap meets and tried to sell my crafts and not one thing sold. I felt so depressed and upset that I almost gave up. I am trying to stay positive. I even made some really cute diaper wipe cases too. Tell me what do you think of them.

Very Cute Slide.com

I just found this browsing and I thought that it was so cute. I got it from Slide.com










Such A Hard time

I have put my crafts up on Etsy and Ebay and have still not sold a single thing. I am not sure why, or if I am just not making things that people are interested in. I wish that I had some tips of what to make so that I can make some sells. I hope that those that are reading this have shared some of my frustration and will leave me comments with some suggestions.

New Pet Pillow


I Have created this pet pillow. It is made of fleece and put together like the Fleece knot blankets, but I made a pillow to go on the inside. It is not stuff full like a throw pillow but I stuff it enough to make it soft and squishy for a cat or small dog to lay on. The pillow is removable by untying the knots on one side and slipping the pillow out so that you are able to wash you bed if it gets dirty. I know that my cats shed really badly and I wanted to be able to wash it. Please leave your comments and tell me what you think.

So lost

I am really not understanding how I can get hits to my Etsy site or to ebay to see the things that I have made. I really would like to figure that out so that I can start to sell my crafts. If anyone has any thoughts or comments please leave them. This is my latest item that I have made. This adorable diaper wipe case, what do you think?

Pie Points

I just came across this a few weeks ago and I think that it might be a way to get people visiting your site. I know that they have a pie hunt, you search other websites for the pie, you click it and earn points plus a ticket into a weekly drawing. You can also donate a gift for a prize and get your site listed.

I just love this site

I am always looking for things to make and things to try. I found this site and I just love it. There is so much to look at and free patterns plus very reasonable priced downloads. Right now you can actually sign up for the newsletter and get a free pattern. There is this one for an adorable purse I want to make. If you have time, take a look.

New To Crafting

Hi,
This is my first post and It will be to tell you that I am new to crafting. I have so many questions and thought that maybe if I put them down on a blog or journal I might be able to help someone else that has the same question. My mother did crafts when I was a child in order to work from home and not have to put us in daycare or go to work full time outside the home. Back then she did country crafts and there were stores all over our city that sold country crafts. Now we have Ebay and Etsy and the internet. She did well and made good money. I am hoping to at least be able to make enough to do the same as she did, that is keep my kids out of daycare. I have created a website to sell my crafts but after two months nothing has sold yet. So I am looking for some help. Maybe getting my blog out there and getting some feedback will help.
