So far things seem to be going good for the Etsy shop. No new sales yet. Today I was contacted by someone from They liked my blue cross bookmark and featuerd it on their blog. The more I am discovered the greater chance I will have in getting this shop off the ground. Right now my biggest goal is to just get noticed and then when someones needs something they will remember me and request that something special. Hopefuly by the big Christmas rush the shop will be booming. I will add a link to so others can check out their great site. There are alot of amasing artests that advertise on their site. I am honered that they have found my work worthy of their site.

Day one

This blog is my journy of opening an Etsy shop. I plan to explore all aspects of embroidery. Hopefuly you will learn something new along with watching the progress of my etsy shop.

A little about my shop:

The shop was opened March 13, 2009. After a few days of setup I listed my first items. Items listed where some animal shaped embroidered zipper pouches and some lace bookmarkers. I did not expect things to move so fast. I had my first sale on March 30, 2009. Then the begining of last week I got a custom order for 2 change pouches.

I was searching the web for some inexpensive ways to advertise the shop and came across a blog offering free advertising to etsy shop owners. So I sent in 3 of my shop items and the blog owner chose to list my shop. The Blog is Everyday Living.

I have also joined a Etsy team Central California Etsy Team we meet twice a month. I will also share with you some of the things we do.

I hope you enjoy getting to know embroidery a little more with me.
