Ok people, I'm shaking things up in my Etsy shop! Can you feel all the shaking (you may want to get in a doorway for safety)!? Ok, here's the backstory: Back in 2008 when I opened my Etsy shop, I mainly sold charm necklaces. I did a few custom orders for weddings, sold a bunch to friends for gifts, and had an every-now-and-again sale on Etsy. Without getting into all the details, for one reason or another it fizzled out, and I took my shop in a new direction. I was busy making flower hair clips for my baby girl and continued to have success making things for friends and family, but not so much on Etsy. Well Etsy, I'M BACK! 2011 is the year that you and I are going to be friends again, OK?!!!!?!!! Ha ha. I just "launched" with my new and improved charm necklace collection and I'm super excited about it. I think they came out really cute and I'm excited to see how they do out there in etsy-land. It's dog-eat-dog out there for sure though! After I listed my first one, I went right to the jewelry section to do a final spell check (I mean, it had not been more than 2 minutes since I hit "finish"), and my listing had already moved down to page 3. No joke. This is going to be interesting, but I'm definitely up for the challenge. So, if you're looking for a cute, inexpensive, meaningful gift for yourself or a loved one, stop by OohLalaCo :) & pardon my shameless plug.
