ETC. and me


As most of you know, after I quit my full time job back in June I planned on starting an Etsy Store. Well, life has been in the way and I just haven't had time. Ryan came up with a name for my store months ago and I finally developed a logo! I don't want to limit myself so it's etcetera which is a Latin expression that means "an other things". Get it, ECT. and me?!

Well, the other day it was announced at church they are have a Jolly Jammies Jamboree and they were looking for vendors to have craft booths. I thought, hey I could do that? What better way to kick me in gear?! I thought about it for a few days and I managed to get the last booth available! Then it hit me...OMG what am I doing? Will I have enough stuff? How do I decorate? What if no one buys anything? 


I was digging around our shed and found these two window frames. I plan on removing the screens, sanding them and give them a fresh coat of paint. I can use these puppies to display necklaces. 


Then I came across these two antique sewing machines drawers. I'm sure I can find some use for them.


Remember this piece? I found it in Canton. I updated it with a metallic bronze color so it can go with silver or gold. I thought it would be cute to hang my business cards on.

I've registered my Etsy Store but I'm not putting anything up until after the event which is December 1st. I want to make sure I have enough to show :) Also, I started a Facebook Business Page (gasp) just for the ETC and me. HOWEVER, I have no idea what I'm doing so I'm not sure if you can even see it. Remember I'm the only person in the world who isn't on Facebook. I thought it would be a good way to update people whenever I add new designs to Etsy. We'll see...
