to etsy or not to etsy?

that is the question...and the answer is yes!!! i have been going back and forth with this so i decided to have a go with it and it's going well, already. i have had more views on etsy in the two hours that it's been open than the two months plus that the shop has been opened. goes to show you about the power of handmade.

of course, the new shop had to have a new header, too.
slightly different than the website but just barely. i'm really getting into playing with the photoshop and making headers and logos. it's REALLY a lot of fun. oh my...when did i turn into such a techie nerd. oh, well...i'm going with that, too.

on another note, the family's been great. we are feeling really settled here and it's a settled that feels a little too comfortable. i have really come to terms with the move and feel dangerously comfortable to the point that i can get careless. the kind of careless that can rock my world. and what i'm referring to is theft. as beautiful and wonderful as it is living here that seems to be the biggest concern. it's unfortunate but something that the ex-pats have to be conscious of on a daily basis. so, just as i open our french doors and windows i have to make sure that everything is shut tight before we leave home. small price we have to pay to live the dream, i guess. 

and if you want to bring some of the dream home to you check out my new etsy shop!

    really happy you have an etsy shop! i know it will do well! i'm looking forward to offering some of my photos again after we get home at some point. i already have some postcards ready to go!

    just a thought, would you mind opening the comment option where one can leave their url ? i won't be using my blogger account much longer and i've always had trouble with the typepad one for some odd reason. otherwise you would have had more comments here from me!

  4. Happy Fourth to all! And thanks for being so supportive.

    @ Toni -- I think i was able to do it. Hope it worked!
