Etsy and crafts....This week I have really been trying to learn how to market my Etsy shop. I joined a new Team: Homemadeology.etsy.com. Wow! A ton of information. Not just information to fill pages, but GOOD information, easily read and understood. I have been trying to learn about SEO (search engine optimization). You know, I really don't want to learn all this stuff but I have found out that I don't want to have a shop loaded with really nice items- but I don't have many visitors- so learn I must.
My reward for preserving was opening my email this morning to find that I have an item featured on an Etsy Treasury...Please check out my item and the treasury at:

This gets me excited and I want to reciprocate and do a Treasury featuring something from www.emakaye.etsy.com
Creating valentines can be fun! Creating the featured collage, I used pretty pink, wired ribbon that was rescued from a Christmas present package. I cut off the sparkly edge to edge the valentine image. Then I gathered the remaining edge of the cut ribbon to edge the top and bottom of the valentine image.
While shopping at Michaels after Christmas, I found this wonderful 2 1/2" wide PINK ribbon on sale, 70% off. The roll has 10 yards which I bought for $3. Wahoo!!
TIP...When checking sales, always look at the items with an 'out of the box' attitude. You'll be amazed at what you will find. Who would have thought to look for pink, polka-dot, sheer, sparkly, wired ribbon at Christmas?
Please let me know what crafts and tips you would like to read about on future blogs! And please check out my www.allthingshomey.etsy.com e-shop for more one of a kind Vintage Valentines and unique creations. Thanks for reading and have a blessed day!
