Listing, listing and more listing

So, the craft shows I did went alright. Had a fabu time, lots of laughs, tons of stories, most of which are probably inappropriate to put on a blog :) 

I didn't make as much as I had hoped, but I guess doing a craft show on a "Black Friday" weekend where all the stores were having amazing deals may have put a bit of a damper on the amount of people showing up. Met amazing people though, so that's always a huge plus. I did make back the table fees, gas money, lunch money and have some monies in my pocket, but I did hope to do much more. 

So, what's a girl to do? List on Etsy! I've been listing like a mad mad fiend. I hope to atleast make some good sales before Christmas so I can actually purchase a few things to give as presents. I don't think my friends and fam would appreciate me just giving them crafts I've made but didn't sell hee hee. Well, some of them would be okay with it - but I'd feel like a douche. 

I'm currently running a FREE SHIPPING sale in my shop. All you gotta do is use the coupon code FREESHIP upon checkout! You know you want to... free shipping, c'mon now! Sometimes that's the most expensive part of buying online!! 

Will I lose money for shipping free? Of course. But a girls gotta do what a girls gotta do. Running out of time for saving money for a downpayment! And 80% of what I'm making at my job right now goes towards groceries and gas. Now if I could just stop eating and driving I'd be laughing! hee hee (well, I probably wouldn't be laughing. I'd be pretty emaciated.)

Wanna know what I'm listing? 

For example...

 

 

Lots of rings, earrings, cufflinks and such like these ones with my photographs in them.

I also had my super chickadee illustration featured! 


 And if you have a super duper whacked out sense of humour like yours truly, a "kock" ring. (or several. I have about 5 left!) 

I actually almost ran out of Christmas cards on the Saturday and had to come home and make some more. (excuse me, my cats being a jerk face right now.... Okay, door's closed - that's better....) 

 

 

 

 

And I also have necklaces with my photography as well...

I'm soon going to be listing my Canadian Animals series of cards, so keep an eye out! Alright, that's enough plugging my own work for now... 

I'm slowly starting to change my shop name! I have my Facebook fan page changed (well the URL and banner, but it still says I'm "SassmowthDesigns on Etsy". Don't know if I can change that!) and as you can see, my banner up top there. And my Twitter has also changed to @LoveUPorkChops. Lots more changes to come when I figure out how to change my URL on this blog. Anyone know how to do that? I'm a little slow. (As my Dad says, I'm "Sloooovenian" ha ha. He's a comedian) 

Alright must get back to listing. I also have to put a little Paypal thingy on here so I can have people purchase directly from my website as opposed to having to go through Etsy. All in due time I suppose. (Again, anyone have advice on that one?!) 

Okay, off I go! Have a great night everyone!

Facebook conundrum

Does conundrum make sense? Sometimes I use misuse words. Like, really badly. Like, not even close to what the real meaning is. Which sometimes confuses me because how in the world can I know what bombastic means, but not horrendous?!

Anyhoodle, the issue I'm having with facebook. I know alot of you have issues with facebook, and really, I have it for my business (which has pretty much been dead since December) and to keep in touch with friends and fam that live far away. And hell, to keep in touch with friends that live close by, but since our schedules dont match whatsoever, I never get to see them. Sad face.

The issue is viewing facebook on my iPhone... well, on the computer too, but atleast on the computer I can block all the posts about this blingy game and that super game and all those freakin' games I refuse to play that annoy me. But for some reason, I can't block the f*cking song pop crap. So basically, my ENTIRE news feed is "this person guessed this song on songpop!" and they guessed freakin' 20 songs in a row, and it shows that message for EVERY ONE. THEN to slap me in the face a little more, it does a "this person guessed 20 songs on songpop!" And I always cry a little when I see yet another friend started guessing songs on songpop. I want to cry right now with how many times I've even written song pop. 

To make matters worse, Facebook has filled up with "if you remember this person, click like and share!" "if you know what this contraption is from the 60's, click like and share!" So then you have those people that actually click like and share on EVERY ONE. Methinks I need to stop checking facebook. 

In other news, I'm a complete idiot! See, a post ago, a few posts ago, I don't recall, I said I haven't been crafting and had nothing to share. Geezus, seriously?! That's all I did in June for my sister in laws wedding!

I made these "stained glass" type silhouette thingys to decorate the walls of the reception hall. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They're gigantic. (well, before I knew what horrendous meant, I'd be saying they were horrendous btw) And also to take note, these aren't pics of the completed project. I still had to attach the black outline to the white backing and cut the white backing to size.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I did 8 of them and they really brought the room together, so I was super excited about that. And I just realized I probably should have cropped them first before I put them online. I am trying to be a professional photographer here after all and I'm posting crap pictures lol. Whoopsie! Or as I learned in Slovenia, Ooop-see-la! Oh damn, I should probably write about my trip to Vienna and Slovenia! I didn't even mention I was going! HA! 

Anyhoo, I think that's all I have for today. I know there's more, but I think I'm too annoyed by facebook to write anything else. Plus I'm currently cooking dinner and don't want that chicken to burn :) 

I'll hopefully be back soon! I'm on a mission to get my shop and crafting business up and running this week! Wish me luck! 

Oh, and in other news, my hands smell like onions. Have a super night!

Facebook-a-palooza

Still working on my SEO Part II! It should be up soon. I learned some new things since then so I needed to revamp my whole post and make a part III. Go figure. Although when it comes to SEO there's really probably about 15,008 posts I can make about it :)

But until then, I wanted to comment on a little tidbit that might be helpful for others concerning facebook.

Recently, I set up a facebook fan page for MyCraftCorner. But when I made the page, I had no discussions tab. That was kinda important - how else can we do link love for ultimate networking fun?! Kinda difficult to do that if you have no discussions tab! For *french seal* sake! (For people who aren't frenchies, you can click this link and find out what the *french seal* I'm talking about)

                    

So, I spent a good 5 hours on and off on Thursday to try and add a discussions tab. By the way, the facebook help is absolutely NO help at all. Just sayin'. And everytime I did a google search on the subject, all the results took me back to the Facebook no-help section. I finally gave up and went to bed.

Next morning around 4am (when I got back from driving my husband to work - yes, I love him) I sighed heavily, sat down in my chair, shed a tear, and typed the words into google "How to add a discussion board to facebook". And y'know what I found? AN ANSWER! WHICH TOOK 5 SECONDS TO FIX!

I cried.

So, just incase this happened to anyone else out there, THIS is how you add a discussion tab to your facebook if yours was mysteriously not on your business page:

1. Go to your facebook search tab, and type in "discussion boards"

2. The first search that comes up is a Discussion Boards App page.

3. Click on "Add to my Page" which is found underneath the profile picture.

4. When you go back to your business page, it'll be in your left hand side bar.

Easy peasy. Why I couldn't find that to begin with really cranks my gears, know what I mean? Stupid Facebook.

Hope everyone is having a great weekend!! Off to make stuff since I got my supplies! Yeah for me!
