Etsyversary

1 12 2013

As of November 26th, my Etsy shop, Dream Half Full, has been open for a year. Admittedly, my free time didn’t allow me for many (read: any) efforts at marketing, and I’ve been very slow to upload new products in the past 6+ months, but it’s been a good learning experience, and I’m happy with it so far. I’m thankful for having a pretty smooth year with that. To celebrate, I got off my butt and posted some new items today (click the link above to view them in the shop):

There are a few others and MANY more items that need photographing before posting. Most of my items are one of a kind. Some of my favorites sold this year:

mini clay kiwi slices embedded in resin

And of course the sold items are no longer up in the store, but here are some existing ones that are:

yellow flower pendant... I actually have made more than 1 of these and sold a coupe, but have more upcoming including one in a black setting that really pops!

8x10 photo - these flowers grow locally, and bees love them...naturally the flowers are called "bee balm."

This is a crop of my vulture drawing/painting. The original is for sale, and tiny ACEO cards (for those that like smaller things or just don't want to spend $) are just posted today!

Resin makes good magnets too. These encase tiny prints of my nature photos.

Anyway, more to come. I’ve been putting “coming soon” by the plushies (stuffed animal toys) listing on my business card for a year. It’s time to make that happen. I’m spending the winter studying for a very big certification exam, but I promise to make more effort to get new items up! Happy Thanksgiving weekend!
