WOYWW 100

I was not going to miss this week of WOYWW for anything! It is WOYWW 100. If you have no idea, what I am talking about pop over to Julia Dunnit's blog here. I managed to visit you all last week and comment!there were some I could not leave a comment, a couple of blogs because I everytime i opened their page, my internet explorer crashed.

I have nothing to report on my Ebay Shop. I am still waiting for bids. However, I will try some more combinations first and see what happens.

I have a facebook page, which I have started for my cards. I need 25 fans before I can amend the URL into something easier. I only have 8 at the moment, early days. My facebook page is here

Since last week, i decided to open an Etsy account since it seems more popular and successful in blogland. For the time being, my Folksy account will remain open. My Etsy shop is here

Thank you for all who became followers last week. I am nearly on 200 followers! wow. I hope to get there soon. If I have not managed to follow you from last week, please drop me a link to your blog for me to do so. I can not always find a link to your blog. I hope I can make 200 followers this week. If you like what you see, do become a follower I hopefully will not disappoint. I have some blog candy open starting soon.

Here is what you have all come for, pictures of the desk / craft room:

The first is of my desk, and you can see the time I got up to take the picture. My wallet for my crafty purchases when will I ever learn! Some left over Demo Born to Shop cards, which I have put on Ebay for sale as a bundle here
This is a picture of my keyboard to the right. To the very left is a pile of cards I have started to make for my shops. The next pile of cards is Christmas cards. Card bags, and the third pile of cards are actual cards that are online for sale in my shop
Some may remember this corner of my room, it has grown my other set of drawers, because the two green draws which was full of clear stamps, was overfilled. So i have now managed to organise my clear stamps some more by Cute and Cuddly, Penny Black, Christmas and everything else.

That is lots of piles of cards - I am amazed at the height of your drawers I could never reach the things at the top!

Sounds like you have run the gamut of online shops. I think I'll come to you if I ever decide to open one. Good luck with your new etsy shop, though. I have heard they are very popular. Happy WOYWW from # 6 this week.

Elizabeth said...

Hi Sarpreet, you must have been up half the night to get to #3 - well done - and you left a comment before I'd hardly posted:) It will take a while to become known on your shops but good luck and I'm sure it will happen for you eventually. I see you've been sorting out your stamp storage too - it's an ongoing problem, the more I buy the more I need to find a home for! Have a great week. Elizabeth x #38

Sid said...

Now that's a skyscraper of a unit !!

Happy 100th WOYWW, xx

Di said...

Hi Sarpreet! I'm already a follower so can't help you reach 200 today. Good for you selling your lovely cards - and I wanna know if you're nine foot tall or do you have steps to reach the top of that stack of drawers? :) Have sent you an email in reply to your question about the pedestal I have under my desk. Happy WOYWW!! Di x

Carola Bartz said...

Lots of cards going on here - very creative! Good luck with all of your online stores!

Erika said...

You look very organised Sarpreet, good luck with Etsy.x Thanks for sharing.

April said...

Good luck with your shops! your cards are lovely so I'm sure they will go well. You asked how I get on with the little Brilliance Ink Pads, I find them ideal as wanted a selection of colours and the small pads don't take up too much space and are cheaper than having to buy the bigger ones. Thanks for sharing.

Looks like you have lots going on! Happy WOYWW Wednesday!

Sarah-Jane said...

Looks like you have been a busy girl, lots going on on both your desks today. Thanks for visiting me, the little pots you asked about were from an independent shop in Salisbury, that's why I love shopping there, it's so nice to pick up different things :-) I am about to become #199 too!
Hugs, Sarah-Jane #79 @ WOYWW xx

Bubbles said...

Wow... you visited everyone last week? What a thoughtful person you are! So sweet.
Your workspace seems so organised - whereas mine is usually just an organised chaos! TFS! :)

You've got quite a lot going on! And that's quite a tower in the corner there. Thanks for sharing!

The Crafty Elf said...

Christmas.... so excited! My favourite time of year. I must say though you've been very busy! Happy WOYWW ;)

Deb said...

wow, your drawer tower is so tall, can you still reach them?
happy woyww 100!
Happy Crafting, Debxx

MaggieC said...

Well done for starting your own shop. Hope all goes really well for you.

Julia Dunnit said...

Shops are such fickle friends - you get all excited and then have to wait! Be patient, I'm sure your work will reap reward soon! You have the tallest stack of organised stamps I've seen on WOYWW!!

Sparkly Engineer said...

What organization. Christmas cards already? And that stack of shelves is soooo tall. How can you reach?

Anne said...

You are very organised. I hd intended to start Christmas cards early but somehow still not started. Have also been sorting out my clear stamps - don't think I have as many as you though. Good luck with thre online selling. Anne

Doone said...

yep the big centenery,

and as Julia says you need to be patient and allow the shop time to be noticed, your blog is the doorway to which ever shops you have, most people hop rather than go direct, make sure you feature you pieces on the blog not just the shops ...brand yourself, best of luck with sales...
