It's been another busy weekend (aren't they always, really?). I did something impulsive and opened a new online store at a new site. Similar to Etsy, I think. Anyway I thought it might be a good idea. The place is called ShopHandMade.com...you can see my store here: Merimask Designs. It is sad and wee, with just two items. I'll add more no doubt, but I want to have the stock to run both this place and my Etsy site, so I'll build it slowly. Basically it'll be a copy of my Etsy shop, just at a new venue.
I hate change. The new store feels all odd and clunky. Etsy is like an old friend to me; I think I could list stuff in my sleep, there. The SHM site is...just new. And weird. And not familiar. Setting it up was scary and tedious...but then, I remember Etsy was scary at first too. Everything is scary at first, until you get used to it.
I just thought it'd be wise not to have ALL my eggs in the "Etsy basket". What if something happens to that site? It's good to have a contingency plan.
In other news; I've been getting a lot of requests for pictures of my masks with people in 'em. Oddly, I do not have any of these! I don't know why...I guess it's just something I never bothered to do. Still, it's a good idea so what follows are a bunch of pictures of Charlotte wearing a few of my masks. She very kindly offered to be my model, 'cause she has such a cute little face!
And there you have it! Char deserves a hearty round of applause because it was SO COLD today and we had to take these pictures outside (of course I was outside too, so I guess I deserve applause as well). She was a good sport though.
Back to work, here. I have so many orders to fill & things to make! ^_^
