WOYWW

Welcome to another crazy WOYWW with our host Julia. To join in the fun, click here

Since my last participation in WOYWW, I have started selling cards on Ebay after seeing so many people doing this and being successful. My cards will probably not sell for much, but as long as they are selling I am happy. To view my cards on Ebay click here

I have also started a shop on Folksy, not sure which was best Folksy or Etsy, or both, but for the time being my cards are on Folksy, here. I now just need to get to craft fairs and do some advertising for my shops and hopefully business will pick up. If you are on Folksy, add me to your favourites - and I can come and look in your shop and favourite you as well.

If you know anyone who would be interested in my shops - do pass on the word.

I have gained in a few followers - thank you for all those from WOYWW for joining me, I much appreciate it. If I have not followed you in the same, it is probably I could not find a link to your blog. Please leave me a link to my blog and I will come and follow you. If you would like to follow my blog, do join in and I will come and visit your blog and follow your blog as well.

I am also considering launching a Forever Friend Sunday, to help us crafters get most of their Forever Friends goodies. If you are interested please leave a comment in this post here

To celebrate the launch of my shop, and my blog, my wedding. I will be launching blog candy on 1st May. It will be a big candy. Come back soon to find out more and to participate.

Now, for what you have all come over to see. Here is a picture of my messy desk. I have finished one card, ready to be photographed for my shop and taken to work. And I am working on another card, using free download papers in Creativity Club over at docrafts. Also, for previous cards, you can see a list of products i used, I make a list of items used and when sold, i can see if I have gained my money worth from my stamps.
Some double sided tape. Some blue card stitched on the sewing machine - experimenting at the moment. And a Forever Friend Decoupage from the Retro collection which has now dried hopefully!
P.S. Sorry for the long post!

I am a big forever fan! I love the new cuttlebug but it's my first cuttlebug so don't have much to compare. It is very handy to be able to put the handle away especially as i don't have a lot of room for my stash. I am now on of your follower.
tc see your desk next week!

Julia Dunnit said...

Not only busy - efficient and organised as well! Can I offer a tip about the Forever Friends thing - start it anyway...then people will join in, canvassing opinion first makes them queasy about commiting - they wanna see how fun it is first. Just my experience. Great way to sell your cards, I imagine you make loads in the line of duty.

April said...

Good luck with selling your cards! Thanks for sharing.
