So my etsy shop is open, with just eight things so far, hopefully more to come this week. I’m overwhelmed. You start one new thing and your focus goes totally there… everything else drops off. It happened when I started blogging, then facebook, now etsy. Etsy is a good thing, but takes so much time to photograph everything well, and to network well. And it’s only going to be a good thing if you do all these things well. I’m finding it to be like all other marketing… it all takes time… time that I never seem to have enough of!
On top of trying to get the etsy shop started last week, the making of pottery couldn’t stop. I shipped out four cremation urns in two days, that rarely happens, and it made me realize how low my stock of urns is. So I made quite a few urns last week, some are quite large… it is physically very tiring. Then there is the whole emotional aspect of making urns, I will have another whole post on that soon.
