Earlier this week while I was reading the Etsy forums I came across a thread about spamming shops that you feature in your treasury. There was a huge response to this thread and it grew by pages in hours and has since been closed. I am trying to be more active in the forums, virtual labs and chats on Etsy in hopes of networking my way into some sales.
As a whole I am very shy person and find it really hard to put myself out there, so when I do make comments they are usually short sweet and to the point.
All it took was one post in one thread. The result was being featured in three treasuries in two days so far. I had only been in two treasuries since I opened my shop on September 1, 2010. I also curated my very first treasury this week as well.
I am going to have to buck it up and step out of my comfort zone and be more social if I want to be successful in this dream.
Have a great weekend.

The first treasury I was featured in after posting has had over 2000 views so far. Great exposure for my shop.

I am working on some new bookmarks to offer you guys. I am still gathering photos and waiting on some more supplies to arrive. I have found some pretty tassels to use in place of the yarn that I am offering now. These tassels will accent the the photos on these bookmarks better and will look more professional. I am also considering laminating my bookmarks in the near future. This will increase the durability and insure that the photos will be more protected from the elements.
