Boring Sunday....

I don't often get bored.
Summer is spending the day at her nan's and hubby is out working. 
I am down to my last little square of silver sheet.
I asked at Rio when they were getting the particular sheet I want. They informed me it won't be until late July now :(

So, it looks like I will have to make the order for some here. But I have no choice. I want to make stuff and I can't, not even with that last little piece ... I just don't know what to make with it lol.

Yesterday wasn't much of a better day either.
Though I did get the dog groomed. I cut all his hair down very short (Took me forever) and washed him and now he's happy. As much as he doesn't enjoy his hair being cut, he definitely enjoys the aftermath. And so do we. If I ever have a dog again, I will never have one with long hair. Way too much maintenance. 

Last night whilst my hubs and I sat and ate dinner, we heard a huge ruckus going on out the front of our house. Hubs went to investigate and to cut a long story short, our neighbour (bout 50yrs oldish, very quiet family man) had been punched in the face by a friend. We were both puzzled as to what on earth had gone down, to encourage this mans friend to punch him. But the neighbour was drunk. So it could have been anything. We are surprised that this went down though, as to look at him, you wouldn't think he would ever go out and come home drunk. Ever.

So that's all that's been going on around here. Summer goes back to kindy next week (YAY!) and hopefully by the end of the week, I shall have some silver supplies?....

Here is what I finished this past week:

You can see most of it's metal clay as I had a couple of packets to use. So at least I got to make something. For the first time ever, I am over the 30 piece in my shop mark! I am thinking of making my own website/shop, but trouble is I would want to put all my work from Etsy on it and I'd want to leave my work on Etsy at the same time. I don't know if that would work? What if just by some random coincidence someone bought a certain item from Etsy AND that same certain item from my webshop??? Then what would I do?? lol

Em ♥



Well yay for uneventful days!

> I am thinking of making my own website/shop

I've been having this same dilemma! I've found that I'm doing a lot more custom orders, usually outside of Etsy, and it's a drag having to pay the Etsy fees every month, when I'm sometimes wondering how helpful Etsy really is to sellers who aren't over the one million mark! I do know some sellers who maintain both an Etsy and external shop -- I guess you'd just have to be really on the ball!

It sure is a drag paying those fees! I just want to have somewhere for a customer to shop - without having to sign up an account first. As popular as Etsy is becoming over here, there are still a lot of people who don't know what it is. And having my own website to send them to would be really helpful for those times. I guess I could always try it and see what happens.....

Love your stuff! It happened to me - selling the same one off piece in two shops... Now I only have one shop :-)

I'm not sure what to do Tania as a lot of people I come across don't know about Etsy. But if I could say I have my own website, then perhaps the may be more comfortable to check it out and buy. I think I am willing to take the chance.....till I regret it haha
