Rain Rain go away

I usually don't have much of a problem with rain. This weekend it's just that it's not exactly the weather I need to do some of the things I wanted to do. Okay, so really I made no plans for myself this weekend, but when you have a week of sunny niceness in Seattle I think hiking is in the back of most peoples heads. But then Seattle pulls the usually trick of sunny during the week, rainy on the weekend. This city is really really good at that trick, and I'm still not used to it. Anyway I actually did plan to do some photographing of my jewelry this weekend, mainly the only thing I planned to do. I'm not too sure how I want to do it yet, and I may not end up needing the sun, but I wanted to have the opportunity to play around with natural light. Maybe there's still something I can do, today's task is to figure out what that is.

There's still nothing in my shop right now so my etsy banner on the left is from my favorites. All bluebirds because ideally I'd like to make a treasury entry out of it with that theme, if I can ever figure out how to get a treasury all to myself.

Setting Everything Up

This is my first post on what is to be my crafting & etsy shop oriented blog. I've been doing a lot of prepwork for my (presently non-existent) etsy shop. Well it exists, and has for about the last week or so, as an empty etsy shop with only the banner I made last weekend. Like oh so many shops on there. It's starting to make me nervous that I won't do anything, but I have been keeping busy and working toward opening the place up. I've still got business cards and stickers to design & print, packaging to figure out, and some serious amounts of photography to accomplish. And that's just the big stuff. It's a lot of work but it's still all very fun. I really really am hoping and working toward opening the shop on Monday, October 1st!
