First Post

This is my first post! And I'm not sure what to write. lol I've been wanting to start a blog for a while now. I always think of something really witty that I would love to share with the world, and now I just draw a blank. I have two girls, 4 yrs and 18 mos, so I haven't had much time to start a blog. I finally got to set this up today though, and am eager to put something on here.

I have an etsy shop that I had about given up on, but it has recently picked up. That's been pretty exciting. You really have to keep renewing your items, or you don't stand a chance. I've been too cheap to renew regularly, but decided to change that. It has definitely made a difference! I've always wanted to sell things I make, but was never successful. There aren't a lot of options in my area for that sort of thing, so etsy has given me hope. I mostly sell jewelry, but my plan is to sell all sorts of things.

I just finished some Christmas items for my shop. They are all shrinky dink jewelry. I LOVE shrinky dinks! They can get really addictive, and there are tons of possibilities.
If you want to learn more about how to use shrink plastic there is a great tutorial on threadbanger.com. It covers most of the basics.

Also do a search on www.craftster.org That is the most helpful crafting website I have found and it has categories for any art or craft you can think of. If you can't find what your looking for in a search, just post your question and the great members on there are more than happy to answer.

Well, that's all for now. I should get some sleep, busy day tomorrow.
