Etsy Nibble!

The original point of this blog was to support my etsy store. Over the past few months, I've lost a little of the obsession of using my beautiful little Craft Robo, quite possibly my most fun and exciting craft purchase ever (and one whose cost I justified by pointing out the thousands I was going to make on etsy).

I've had a bit of a dry spell on etsy for a few months. You get sales by keeping your store up-to-date (newer postings come up first in the search results) and by actively promoting your store in ways that I haven't been taking advantage of lately (one is by blogging about your various activities), so it's something of a miracle that someone actually did stumble upon one of my listings, for my circus/carnival invitations and asked about them.

She's planning a "Three-Ring Circus" theme for her three kids. In the works: a music instructor to entertain the wee ones, a popcorn machine, a bouncy structure, clown performance and other fun activities.

Fun! I love people who plan in advance (it makes my own obsessive planning six months ahead of time seem a little less crazy).

Hopefully she'll respond positively to my message back to her.... we'll see!
