Snitching a few minutes away from my morning routine to write a quick post about what we’ve been doing!
First of all, we’ve been filling and updating the Gallery part of the website… It sure takes a lot of time to upload all those pictures, get them the right size, and… hardest of all… to figure out what size they are once they’re framed! I think in terms of their “going into the frame” size, not what dimensions they are when hanging on the wall. Hubby rattled off a formula for me to add to each side of the finished picture, but I resorted to climbing ladders, pulling down frames of various sorts and using the old-fashioned ruler. Much easier than doing math, in my book. He just shook his head.
So… keep an eye on the gallery as it begins to fill up!
We’ve also started a shop on Etsy! We thought it might be a good idea to put items that are “ready to go” for sale there. When I first checked out Etsy last summer, it didn’t seem like traditional crafts would fit in, but I was in for a big surprise when we joined up! There’s quite a variety there. I’m trying to put a link directly to our Etsy shop on the Home Page of our website, but so far I’ve had no luck at getting it to work. I’ll keep trying, though! Anyway… I think this link will work… Thistle Dew Mercantile on Etsy.
Another related item is that I’ve joined the Farmgirl Flair group… a gaggle of ladies from Mary Jane’s Farmgirl Connection that have sites on Etsy. I’ve not seen my bio on there yet, but the link to our site is on the sidebar, so if my feeble attempts at making the link work do not work, then you can always get there from there. Or you can go to Etsy and search titles for “FGF” or user names for “ThistleDewMercantile” (all squished together) to find a few of our pieces.
