Weekly Resolutions

- BE PATIENT!!
- Craft night with The Crafty Cunts
- Continue to craft
- Spend less time promoting
- Work, work, work
- Send Lauren her package
- Finish Lauren's package
-Send off Etsy Order

So Epic Failure on the whole being patient last week, so let's try it again this week! I guess I have just been super patient at work and not patient at all with crafting, promoting, or people that I thought were my friends.

But speaking for friends, I get to finally spend time with them. Last week we were not able to have craft night due to all The Crafty Cunts being insanely busy.. But Monday it is on and we are having a shindig for sure to make up for lost time. I seriously love my friends, they are so supportive no matter what I am going through and always listen and are very positive people.. Which is what I need. I cannot stand negative nancys, and I think I have had my fill of them for a lifetime!


I have recieved some great feedback on the tank top I did yesterday.. Yea already! People on Etsy are so friendly.. I have been taking a lot of their advice to make my page look even better and not so much like am a amateur.. There are things people look for in stores that I had no idea.. And I am going to share some secrets! A. Take as many pictures of your items as possible. B. Take them in daylight, not at night under a lamp or light.. it loses a lot when you do that plus it looks very unprofessional. C. Try to find something soild to use as a backdrop of your photos. Don't just take them on a shelf and post them.. it also looks unprofessional. Apparently they have a forum on Etsy specifically for people saying what is wrong with photos. So there is my advice for the noobs. Some of you don't need it, I know.


So my frustration with wanting to quit.. NO I am not crazy.. Just exhausted! It is exhausting spending your free time promoting when I would rather be crafting.. It is also exhausting having people complain constantly that they aren't selling anything. There is a rhyme and reason to that.. maybe because the photos, maybe because of the poor promoting.. maybe cause your stuff falls inbetween lines and lines of similar things.


Last night at work was awful, I really wanted to walk out.. but I didn't.. but I do believe that if this one girl keeps getting an attitude with me I am going to ask her to step outside. haha


Lauren from craftster, la la laurrenn, ordered my peeping tom piece.. So I have deicided to throw something extra together for her.. even though she told me not to, tough shit! I like you girl and want to do alittle something extra!

All in all not a super exciting week ahead but they never really are.. I am looking for to craft night with my friends and continuing to craft.. Thank you all for your kind words when I was going through a moment of turmoil, some of you really made me snap out of it! And I appreciate the kindness of people I barely know.
