Have You Heard of This Little Thing Called ETSY? August 2, 2008

Filed under: ***A Link to a LINK for My Etsy Shop - CLICK IT!*** — twlowenstein @ 6:46 pm

I remember thinking, what a weird nameit’ll never catch on, when I first saw Etsy advertised on Get Crafty. So it is with that nose for business that I excitedly present to you:

Click on my banner and you will be whisked away!

Phew. I do not know why I was surprised at the amount of time, effort and work it took to get my shop off the ground. The searching and finding part is a breeze but then there is more! I enjoy the photography and am looking to hone my craft which is a good thing because product shot stuff is knocking me around a bit. I am going to have fun figuring it out. And I an not even going to speak about figuring out the shipping cost.

But enough kvetching from me! I hope you check out my shop. And most importantly a big old THANK YOU for cheering me on as I started this blog and for supporting me in my decision to jump into Etsy. You all ROCK.

Edit to credit: My super talented younger brother designed my banner. He is an amazing artist, darn good with the computer and knows the lyrics to every song ever sung. If you are looking for a cool Etsy banner of your own or just some good old fashioned graphic designing, let me know and I will hook you up with his info!

  14. Braviary is a corruption of bravery and a combination of brave and aviary.

    Braviary made his first appearance in White – Victini
    and Zekrom and Black – Victini and Reshiram. Look for Essie at
    your favorite nail spa or salon or you can purchase the shades on-line direct from Essie.
