Deep Blue Sea

Hi everyone,

Sorry I have been MIA for a couple of days. I have been working on some new items, updating my shop, making new business cards, labels, you name it I'm doing it.

I seem to be having a tough time getting people to view my items. I list them and they come up in every search I can think of but only a few views on one of my items... not sure what is up with that?

I was reading this article that featured some tips on selling on ETSY, which I foung really helpful! The site is on the ETSY forum. Check it out:

Also, I added some new items today! I love the one I created and named "Deep Blue Sea" which I am sharing in the picture above! Come see the rest of my items:

Talk to you soon!

I know I've been absent for a while, but the truth is, getting paperwork ready for taxes just isn't a very interesting blog topic. Even though my first degree is in Business Administration, over 20 years later, I don't remember how to depreciate. I found myself at the library checking out The Complete Idiot's Guide to Accounting and now I just have to read it. I'm hoping I'll be back to normal activities by next week. Have a great weekend.
