I did it....

Well, I did it, said I wouldn't, but lots of blogging over the past few weeks convinced me to at least give it a try, so I spent the better part of my evening setting up an Etsy shop. It's pretty rough right now, still lots to figure out, so stick with me, it will get better, I hope! I only posted a few pendants that I really liked from the wood firing and one little wood fired house that I like. For some reason, my Photoshop has decided to not work anymore and the only way I can resize my photos for the Etsy format is to email them to myself, drag them on my desktop and then uplaod them to the shop. Pain in the ass, and I have to figure something better out. My poor old Mac just wasn't ready for the 21st century :(
So..... I'm sure you aren't impressed with what I have so far, but it's a start. I can already see what a time snatcher this is going to be. Maybe it will fill in those long lonely days while my child is in college!!

It's sorta time consuming....
I don't know how anyone blogs, etsys, facebooks and twitters all at the same time and gets anything accomplished. This is a big time suck! Stay tuned, I'm sure there will be drama :)

hi tracey, you can used piknik and it's easy and it's free... http://www.picnik.com/ for editing your photos (unless your connection is really really slow). etsy is a huge time suck, it's sucked the last 2 weeks of my time and i'm not done yet. what's the name of your shop? i searched "traceybroome" but nothing came up.

your shop looks great - I 'favorite' it from my shop. It is a giant time consumer -- hope you get good sales.

Taking a break from blog posting this month has freed up lots of time for me -- hope to be back and better next month. Can't stay away from reading my pals blogs though :))

I'll look forward to hearing how this goes!

Hey ya'll, thanks for the good wishes! Jim, for some stupid reason I posted my user name as tsbroome and it won't let me change it, grr...
When I learn how to favorite, I will add those of you that favorite me. And I will have to learn to talk differently, apparently:)

Great! I have been thinking about it myself and did not have the energy to make the move. But I had enough energy to order one of your beautiful pendants. It is going to New Zealand, yay!
