In the interest of updating my Etsy shop and listings; I decided to go out on a limb recently. I rarely like to ask people for anything. I try and make everything about somebody else, (unless you talk to my immediate family, of course they may disagree). So I went against my natural gravitation and asked a friend for a favor, she agreed and I think the results thus far are turning out quite well.
This past weekend, I had the privilege of working with a beautiful friend to model my items. We had such a good time coming up with a general look, finding a location, and generally putting the whole thing together, and she was fantastic. I am pleased.
Therefore, starting today; I'll start uploading the photos we took to the existing listings, editing all of the descriptions, and making the entire operation more appealing to the eye. I figure this should take me a week or two to get through everything we photographed. (It was a long day). Then, until we can take more photos, I will be working on creating a larger inventory.
As far as inventory goes, I think I'm going to get back to basics with the things I create. Meaning; for satchels and bags, I'm going to start offering a line of basic colors that will possibly be made to order. A variety of blacks and browns to match any costume or outfit. Some Things that can be re-created depending on availability of the fabrics and materials. I'm also open to suggestion of what else I should make. I don't want to spend too much money to get started on new projects, at least until we figure out our move... Which gives me a great opportunity to siphon through my fabric stash and perhaps condense to a reasonable amount of excess. (Packing fabric is a thousand more times tedious than storing it in a stagnant location.)
I'll do my best to keep people updated on the progress! Perhaps I'll actually start sharing my project creation again. I did like doing that.
