Feeling productive, yet unproductive

So, you know how I dislike all the administrative stuff that comes with having my own little online shop? I did that all weekend. Didn't sit down and crochet once, unless you count the 6 ruffle scarves I made for a charity going on next weekend. Didn't work on my new rug (not the one in the giveaway - that one is done with the exception of the rubber backing.) Yesterday I set up my new mannequin and started snapping pictures of all the ruffle scarves I had. And started working on those pictures with Adobe Photoshop. Which rocks, btw. Might have to buy it after the free trial runs out.

Today - more of the same. Uploaded listings for 4 scarves on 3 different websites, and added them to the portfolio page of my blog. (Have you visited it yet? Pretty cool) Yes, I was able to figure out the html coding to add the pictures and imbed the links back to the Etsy shop for all listings. Yay!

Despite getting all this done, I still have a lot more work to do on pictures that I took. But I want to CREATE! That's why I'm here, right? To create and make pretty things? I have so many projects I want to tackle. I should start making a list and keep it on the blog somewhere. Then, when I make it, I can cross it off my list. Like my crafty bucket list.  Oooooo.....Might have to start that tomorrow.

Well, I'm off to bed. Need to get back to work tomorrow. *sigh* So much work, so little time.

And if you are reading this, please follow my blog if you aren't. I have Google Friend Connect over on the right. Who knows? At Christmas time, I may send out a coupon for so much off or free shipping at about Black Friday for all followers.

And don't forget to enter for your chance to win my new Kitchen Rug before you can buy it!

  1. Ruffle scarves? I'll bet they are beautiful. I went to a baby shower this weekend and a guest crocheted a baby blanket for her with a rainbow ruffle all around. It was so pretty!

    1. I love doing baby blankets. I have one pattern that I love. Thanks for the follow!

  2. I don't know when it hit me re; the administrative stuff vs. the sit & knit part of the Etsy shop. Rude awakening! I agree......I'd much rather be playing with yarn or fabric!

    1. Well, I might not get to work on the admin stuff again until this weekend. My eyes were so tired tonight. Can't tell which picture is sharper. Good thing I'm not working on lace or I wouldn't be able to do anything.

  3. I've been doing tax stuff all night the past week!! it takes soOooO long =)
