Good Gracious!

 So I've got bids on two ACEO cards on ebay...yeh! 😃 However, its been awhile since I've sold anything there and I'm just learning you can not use PayPal directly anymore to receive payments, I think?? Ebay now manages all payments? And that sets up a delay in getting your money quickly.  I'm confused (nothing new ;-). So with that and their fees I decided to see if there were any other popular places to sell Art Cards...... ArtCardsWanted.com. I remember seeing this site a long time ago, I'm talking years ago, so I take that as a good sign (that its still up and running). I think I'm going to give them a try.  I have all these prints of my cards that I'd really like to sell. 

 Joining is free, listing is free, and there is no fee when sold, its a no brainer.


Goodbye Etsy

 Seven months on etsy with no sales :-(  no surprise really.  When you type in earrings in the search bar you get 5,548,278 results! I've closed my shop.

Now what??

 Ok, I admit I'm not a very patient person, never have been, but 6 months on etsy and nothing....nada....zippo. Perhaps I was delusional when I thought the earrings were good enough to sell, or maybe I'm not up on whats trending these days.  I tried a Facebook page, paid boosts, got lots of looks and nothing....nada....zippo.  I'm now toying with the idea of selling all the beads, findings, tools etc. as a lot on ebay.  Its hard to stay excited and inspired with the crickets making so much noise.

So whats next?  Not sure.  I'm bored.




The model for the earrings I'm making and hope to soon be selling. I have to give the seller on ebay credit for their honesty, they did say her hair was tangled, and they weren't lying.

She looks kind of how I feel by the end of most days ;-). It took about an hour to untangle the mess and another half hour or so to give her a new look. Gave her some bangs but not sure what I'll do with the rest of her hair, its just pulled back in a braid for now.

Wonder if I could paint her a bit of a smile? Drilled a hole in her ear and she's just about set.

Meanwhile I am still waiting for some new beads I ordered (from in the US!) a month ago. I know they've finally made it to Philadelphia but we'll see how long they sit at the distribution center before I'll get them :-(
