Valentine's Day Letdown

I didn't sell a single card this Valentine's Day and I have no clue why. I'm open to suggestions on how to improve my etsy shop so go take a look here and honestly tell me what you think. What would sell? What cards do you think I should make next? What style?

At least most of my Valentines Day cards were actually love cards so that means I can pass them on to Operation Write Home to be used by soldiers in Iraq and Afganistan. Hoping to stamp them and send them on their way today.

PS My followers are growing so expect a surprise drawing of a variety of paper, stickers, embellishments and more once I hit 50. So invite folks to come follow me

Craft it Forward

I saw this on The Crooked Stamper and decided to give it a try.

I promise to make a handcrafted item in
2011 & mail to the FIRST 5 people who comment that they would like to join in, only asking in return that you post this on your blog and offer 5 people something you make by hand and mail to them this year.

Sounds easy enough. The bestest part is I get THE WHOLE YEAR to make something. That's, like, forever, right? In my world it is. You watch, it will be Dec 30th and I'll be scrambling. :/

So if you'd like to play, just comment and let me know!

Leavin' on Jet Plane

It only took a year and a half since my San Francisco trip but I've finally done the first layout.

The pattern papers are SEI Enroute, the ribbon & stickers are KI Memories Jet Setting, the Thickers are American Crafts Typo Chipboard. The tools used were Scotch 3G, Fiskars Cutter, Creative Memories Corner Rounder and the Xyron Create-a-Sticker

Scrap Your Stash

I'm a few days late but I've done horribly in Jan. I organized my Valentines/Love Stash and made some cards for my etsy but regrettfully none have sold. I'm thinking towards Spring/St Patricks Day next. But I also brought a kit I wanted to finish up my SF layout project then realized just how much travel goodies I have. Putting it all together in one organizer and hoping to use it for all of my mini trips too. Entered a leftovers swap and looking forward to paring down especially my Christmas and VD goodies. I didn't do any layouts for Jan but hoping for at least 4 for Feburary starting with my annual solo Superbowl challenges. So, if you know of any good travel layout challenges this week or love/heart/Vday card challenges for this week?
