Deader than a Doornail

That is how I feel my Etsy shop is right now. I have had two sales in I don't know how long and both of them were for sale items (although one of them was not supposed to be for sale.) I put the darn stuff on 40% off to destash some of those hair clips and headbands and I have had one sale. What a giant drag. Will I try the Christmas in July sale next year? Probably not unless things change radically. The whole summer has been sluggish compared to spring and it stinks!! Okay, my vent is over. Tomorrow morning bright and early starts my team's "scraps" challenge. We are supposed to be crafting stuff from bits sitting around the house. I have no idea what I am going to do as I have tons of stuff sitting around the house but most of it isn't scraps. So I shall just have to see what I can come up with. On a side note, teenage boys with nothing to do all summer are a giant pain. They whine, they complain, they go out to the mailbox and already stink by the time they get back and then want to hug you. I almost wish school was back in but then I would be driving him to karate all the way across the city twice a week. I am not missing that I can tell you! I have listed a couple of new clips this past week including this one that I think turned out really pretty.

We will see if it generates any interest.


  1. I know the feeling Caroline. I thought my sale would do better!
    Fingers crossed it picks up for us all. :)

  2. Here is hoping things will pick up for you!

  3. You have some really cute stuff! I was just watching your slideshow. I will keep your shop in mind when I need some new things for my little girl!

    By the way, thanks for commenting on my blog so that I could find yours!

  4. I really love your blog. A good tip to bring customer to your items is to do a blog hop and contest. I am doing this my book and candles
