New Etsy Purchase Octopus

"Cordial Creatures - articulated paper doll set"
Mermaid and octopus = friends

"Wool and Water" Shop

Today I am training Lola to update my Etsy Shop. Wow, it has been so long since I listed new stuff I am having to relearn as I teach. Of course when you start listing and playing on Etsy you have to buy stuff ... right? Well the very cool paper doll duo above is from the shop "Wool and Water" , artwork by Amy Earles. I can't wait to receive it.


My Etsy: Today we are uploading some doggy prints and a couple of octopus prints on canvas. Below is Ozzie the Octopus and he can be purchased as an 8 x 10 or 5x7 matted print. I have sold 90 items so far over at Etsy. I am setting a goal to sell 100 items by May... should be easy right?
I have decided that Wednesday will be Etsy good Karma days for me this spring. I am going to start going through goodies I have marked as favorites over the past few months and start making some more purchases. To be a good seller on Etsy you need to learn to be a good shopper. I know Melissa is hearing me on that one, that pug lovin girl knows how to shop!

Support Independent Sellers ... go over to Etsy and buy something!

Don't know where to start? Try their shop local tool. Or their groovy gift guides.
Send your Mom or spouse a list to your favorites. When you see something you like you can bookmark it by adding it as a favorite. Below are thumbnails of some of my favorites. Dang their are a lot of good doggy artists on Etsy.
