The new changes are expected today in Etsyland. Changes to search is the main thing. I have changed a few things in my shop too. I was talking to someone who wouldn't buy cards from me because she didn't like the fact that there was nothing written inside of the cards. Well, I have struggled with that because I can see this happening- a person sees my card, really likes it, wants to buy it, then sees that it has a saying inside that isn't what that person really likes at all. Bye-bye sale!

So I am now offering sayings to be put in the cards if the buyer would like. I have them written in my profile now for birthday cards. Soon I will be adding some other ones that have to do with other celebrations.

I am also seeing that I need to have some change in my shop. There have been so few views lately. And the sales...well, let's just not talk about that! Any suggestions on what I should do, or what you would like to see?

Here are a few photos of the Spring like weather we have been having. The planting has to get done too!

I would rather buy my cards blank, but it is a good idea to offer phrases for the inside.

Thanks crafty, and that is why I won't put in the phrases and sell them that way!
