Long time no post. Sorry about that. I don’t even have a great excuse. A few house keeping things. 99 cent auctions are on hold for now. To be perfectly honest I just can’t afford to offer them at this time. I am hoping to do something else like 9.99 auctions starting in January.
Speaking of the business front of things, I have something new for you to check out. A blurb from Art Fire’s artisan stimulus package:
We want to help artists. That means putting our money where our mouth is and stepping up in these tough economic times. For the next 5,000 verified artists who sign up as verified artisans on artfire.com we’ll lock in your membership at just US $7.00/month for life.

So, yep, I signed up. Artfire. Only $7 a month for life and no final value fees? Hey it is worth a shot. So far I have only gotten one listing set up there. I will be listing new stuff in my shop, just like Etsy daily. I am sad to say I have finally thrown in the towel on Justbeads. I tried it for about 18 months, but the volume over there just wasn’t making the cut. Good luck to them, I hope they make the changes they have been talking about. It’s just time for me to move on.
I hope you all are enjoying your holiday season! I haven’t even started making or buying any thing on my gift list. Bad me! I did set up my little Christmas tree though. I’ll get a pic soon.
