Getting Things Moving Again

Wow! It’s been long time since I’ve posted on this site. We’ve added a second baby to the family mix and that has definitely been an exciting addition. The little guy is about a year and a half now and I’m feeling like it’s time to get back to doing more things for me.

One of those things is to start organizing and sorting everything to reopen my two shops. It feels good to get back into things! Here’s a glance at some of the fun things going on behind the scenes.

First, things first: adding some more flavor to my work space. Here’s how things were originally.

Then I got a new work table, increasing my work space significantly. Woo!

Then, a few months back, I finally got around to putting up a gallery wall of my creative and fun pictures. These are pieces of artwork that I love and it gives the room some pop and energy. It really came together nicely!

After that, I reorganized my cabinets and put things all together along one wall. Here’s how things stand now:

All the changes have created a much better flow with the room and my work space. So ready to get moving with things!

Sharing the Love

Etsy is a living site; they’re always making improvements. Recently, an Activity Feed has been added. I love it!

There’s always been a link from my shop that I can click to see who has favorited my items or my shop. However,  it’s kind of off to the side and a little buried, so I rarely remember to click it.

Now, with this new Activity Feed feature, with one click, I can check what my Etsy friends have been up to and I can see when something of mine has caught another’s eye. It’s very validating!

From this new change, I was inspired to create a treasury that is a collection featuring fabulous items from some of the lovely shops of those who’ve favorited mine! Check it out!
