I feel like getting on Etsy has released something creative, not only in how I sell my work but in making it too.
I’m not sure why, but I feel like I’ve had a million ideas since setting up my Etsy Shop. It’s like I had a really strong cup of coffee and my brain is just buzzing.
I’ve been thinking of changing the header on my blog for a while. I wanted to add some things and take away others.
It took a few days of sewing and cutting, thinking about it and talking about it with Jon to come up with the header I created today.
I’ve always wanted to be inclusive in my work. To make my art accessible. But I can see, in a way, I’ve made my art difficult for people to buy. It came from a fear, really, of being presumptuous and pushy, of being rejected.
Part of my new feeling about selling my work is that I’m more confident about it and myself. And I can also see that making my work easy to buy isn’t presumptuous or pushy, it’s just allowing people to see what I have available and letting them decide if they want it or not.
Seems simple to me now, but for a long time, even just showing my art was mixed up in a lot of emotions, mostly having to do with self-worth.
So I hope my new header will make it easier to see my art in its different forms and easy to get to my Etsy Shop to buy it.
You’ll be able to click on my the Etsy symbol on the left to get to my shop.
On the right you can still click on the facebook and Pinterest symbols and I’ve also added the YouTube button.
So you can visit me on facebook, see lots of my art on Pinterest and watch my videos on YouTube.
I like the simplicity of it and I hope it makes it easier to navigate too.
I’m excited about the new changes and hopefully they’ll be complete in the next few days.
