Busy, busy, busy.....

DSCN1836-001I have been busy this past week getting all of my handmade banners listed in my Etsy shop. Goodness, I had no idea that I had so many made that had not gotten listed yet!!  I do love designing and creating fun things....the rest of it.....not so much.

So apparently I have just been creating and creating and thinking that I would photograph the items and list them "later"......when it is a sunny day......when it is a sunn"ier" day, when I have more energy, when I don't have x, y, or z that MUST get done now....you get the picture, I'm sure.

And I've had to come up with a system to keep track of which ones I've made but not photographed, which ones I've photographed but not yet listed and which ones have been listed. I'm talking about each physical banner and where to put it and store it so I know where it is in my workflow!

I also have had to do the same with all of the photos that I have taken of each item. I usually take a minimum of 5 photos for each item and lots of times take more than that many.  So I have ended up with quite a bunch of photos in my pictures folders. Acckkkkkk.....I do not know how etsy sellers who have hundreds of items keep things straight. I don't know, maybe I'm just being too anal, but I want to make sure that I know where to find an item when I need to!

I was concentrating on listing Valentine's Day banners and so many of these could be used in other ways too.  Many of them would compliment a wedding beautifully or would add a sweet accent to a tea party!

Now this is one that is strictly for Valentine's Day!

DSCN2703 Isn't it adorable? I just could not resist this fabric featuring all of these sweet puppies in Valentine's Day poses! It sure would make a dog lover's heart beat faster!!

I also made one that is reversible and the "back side" is St. Patrick's Day puppies!!! Yup, it is reversible so you get adorable puppies on BOTH sides!!


Woo hoo, you can never have too many puppies.....well at least pictures of puppies!!
