growing pains

The new version of Etsy has been going through some intense bug fixes. Lots of things came out as much needed fixes, and the etsy team seem to be doing all they can to make it right.

I'm still sitting here waiting for an image to upload to their system, which hasn't changed since their beta. But for $0.20 listing fee, I'm not that upset to be made to wait. I'm unconvinced the bugs are preventing customers from buying my stuffies and cards despite some of the voices of doom.

I finally tacked up some business cards at the local Whole Foods community board, which is tucked away by the restrooms. I think I should make up some larger postcards with images of the stuffies in a holiday scene and use those for attention getting promos. I printed and cut the business cards myself, so the stock isn't the highest quality and the images could probably use some more photoshopping, but I haven't yet decided whether or not to order actual REAL offset printed cards from the 'net.

I procrastinate about these sorts of things, but the deal on is about $10 for 100 cards plus shipping (which I couldn't determine without going through the whole process up till checkout). A couple of people on etsy have used them and report nice things, so I might check them out.

Meet a Snugglie, my newest line for the very young or the just the young at heart. Once etsy lets me in, you'll be able to see the others. These are fun to make and I might just make one in every color I own.
