There’s a Shop Now and New Year’s Updates

I’ve gone and done it. The latest incarnation of my web site shop is going to be a Shopify one. I’m sticking it in as a subdomain or a linked outside page (whatever I get to work). It’s going to be a bit different looking than the primary site but I’ll nerd that one out over time.

The plan is to release new items to my own site first then the remains to Etsy. And my non cane, non bead art will be on my personal site (that’s this one!). I love Etsy and will continue using them but they are becoming as expensive and tedious to use as other options and they’re no longer the friendly fluffy folks I joined up with. Which is FINE. It’s work. It does make for less guilt in exploring other options 🙂

So, check out the shop, let me know if you find weird glitches or if there’s stuff you KNOW I make but isn’t listed, yet. And, as always, thanks so much for being fans of the stuff I make!

Other notes: I’ll be removing some of the hard core discounts Etsy sort of forces vendors into, most notably the free shipping for US orders over $35. Etsy is going to ding me for it but this way I can keep from bumping prices up nearly as much and continue to do occasional sales for everyone.

The January 2022 Wrap Up

Well! Made it through January 2022 which was basically like the 21st month of 2020. What sort of craftiness and productive stuff did I get up to? Some of it was:

February has: the next session of my pottery classes, my 45th birthday, a few videos, a tool review, website, shipping, and price updates, fixing up the brick and mortar shop, planning for the Fan Expos, and a bunch of custom orders. Plus seed starts for the slow stuff. All shoved into 28 days.
