Etsy progress to date

Okay, so it's probably silly to do a progress report so early in the game (haven't even been up a week, yet) but people asked for updates so here goes:

Sales: 0

Hearts: 5 (thank you to everyone who "hearted" me!) I find it encouraging that at least a few of these were from "non-jewelry" Etsy people. Those of us who make and sell our own stuff are probably less likely to buy from one another I would think.

Picture issues: Let's see - how many items do I have up? LOL! I'm having a terrible time with how Etsy re-sizes my images for thumbnails - some of them are getting cut off. Does anyone have the brilliant solution to this?

Back to weekend mode...can't believe tomorrow is Monday...ALREADY!

I hope you don't get discouraged. Etsy does take a wee while to get going. Etsy photos? Umm, this is what I do. I crop my photos square with a fair ammount of room top and bottom. Etsy crops by the width of the photo (I think). I save the width to 1000 mp on high resulution. I use a free ware program called Photoscape. It has made a huge difference in my life! I hope some of this makes sense. Kelly, email me if you want more particulars.Seriously, I don't mind at all.
