When I first stumbled across Etsy, I thought it would be the perfect outlet to sell our greetings cards. With little knowledge of it’s workings, I opened a little Made With Love Etsy shop on there & prepared myself for orders flooding in… it didn’t quite work like that… I lost interest in updating the pages … and the shop became empty, bare & clearly unloved. Why? I hear you ask…
Partly due to the success of our own website (I’ve had little time to spare for Etsy) an secondly: Lack of research! I hadn’t thought out the site, got a feel for what Etsy was & just expected things to sell. Pretty much in the way that they do on our own website.
So with a extra helper at Made With Love (oo-er!) I am dedicating a little more time in building the shop up from scratch & starting out.
If you haven’t heard of Etsy before head over – you won’t be disappointed. It’s a treasure trove filled with amazing finds for gifts and treats. All either handmade or vintage in style.
The shop is still bare but I re-did the shop banner at 5am this morning. Here it is – do you like it? More Etsy to follow…

Lilly is Walking!

Worthy of a blog post indeed. Lilly is walking! She’s 19 months but incredibly smart, attentive responsive. She just didn’t want to walk! (Lilly & Daddy do Ikea)

Now that she can she’s pretty smug about the whole thing.

Cute heart sunglasses from Next (£4.99)

The whole website is undergoing a huge makeover at the minute to allow the new shopping cart and payment gateway expected to launch from July 2010. This will streamline the ordering process for wedding stationery, Christening stationery & the new Event stationery pages and make it easier to place an order (a little like the ordering process on the greetings card website). Whilst all this technical stuff is going on, we couldn’t resist a bit of cosmetic decorating with a beautiful new Brock wallpaper in the background. Do you like it?
