Habitual Habitat of the Amy

I kept reading advice columns for how to bring sales to your etsy shop, and one thing they all said is to get a blog.

I can't say this blog has boosted my etsy sales, but it has given me yet another outlet for talking about myself, and that can't be bad--can it?

Artic Wind

Adorable Penguin Bracelet
I had not one but three sales yesterday. It's very exciting, because I've almost made back the money I spent on books yesterday!  (um, whoops?)

Part of me hopes that this becomes a trend, and part of my is grumpily unhappy that it might, because it would mean I'd need to make more things and I've been really lazy about beading lately.  I am working on one beaded project for myself, and I almost have another tapestry to put up, but I'm nowhere near producing something to sell every day.

And I can't sell the thing I'm making for myself because the technique is a new one, and it's awful.  Most people won't notice, but I can see all the flaws--actually, they might be bad enough in this case that others can see them.  Also, it will involve my collection of turtle-shaped beads, and those are MINE, and no one else can have them, even if I make them into a awesome bead-covered dream catcher.  Actually, especially if I make them into a 'catcher.

I'll post pictures if I ever manage to finish it.
