Almost 600, a return, and a give-away

This is almost post No. 600 here.
Can´t believe it myself...

So, time to make big decisions on small
matters.
I´ve re-opened a Bigcartel shop, going back
to the beginning (that´s why heads are round,
for thoughts to change direction, without
getting lost...;)
The increasing facebookishness of etsy is
getting on my nerves, and adjusting to it means
moving into a direction I don´t want to take -
in the way I communicate, and in my work.

I´ve transfered some things from etsy to
the new shop, at special shopwarming prices.

The etsy shop will remain too, for the time
being. I might try and use it for a different
range of wares one of these days - I´m thinking
about putting some more of my time into taking
photos (I´ve trained as a photographer once,
in my youth, did I ever mention that?) - and
I don´t believe in photographing for the drawer...

No. 600 + confession to an error + shopwarming =
time for a give-away...

I´m offering three 6 € virtual vouchers for
either shop - just leave a comment here, confessing
to one of your last (minor) errors...

oh that`s easy, because I just took a wrong decision: I bought a new sewing machine, a big, fantastic one and realized after 2 months that I don`t like her and missed my old one so much. I hope I took the right decision know by selling the new one and buy a larger type of what I had and loved before...
Thanks for the chance and I wish you luck with your new shop!

congratulations . . . i had a good time shopping, danke! minor? it's often major...but finding places in the car (even if i've been there before) i'm always lost on the side streets.

Letting my box of beautiful watercolours fall onto the floor. I am finding it very hard to get them back in the right pallets and back in the box.

Good for you to reopen your other (nicer ?) shop, H !
I don't any experience with either, Etsy nor Bigcartel (too complicated for me ? ha, perhaps that's another error !)
An error? Buying yet another fat quarter Kaffe Fassett fabric perhaps ????

one more time, obviously didn't post. error is I didn't take the time or make the effort to llearn the computer/internet earlier and thus would be more efficient by now/ helen salo

Thanks, so far... - pretty errors! And yes, I´ll dye some more of that blue, it makes for a nice change...

my latest error is pretty weird: i taught my students to do a timed writing of anything they had in their heads (school appropriate, though). one kid wrote, "my penis is red and blue." ah, teenagers...

My error is not knowing any German thus pressing the wrong button and deleting my last error so here's hoping I get the right one this time

This week while I was stitching in the evening (watching a bit of TV) I stitched my piece to my shirt. I think we've all done that one!
Nothing that couldnt be fixed with unpicking, but a nuisance having to unpick perfectly good stitching and not cut my shirt!
Good luck with your Big Cartel shop.

Congratulations on 600 posts - wow!
So many minor errors to choose from. The funniest is going in to the quilt shop for thread thinking that no fabric would be purchased. Ha! There is always something new to tempt me. Another error is thinking that I am the top cat in the house - three felines are proving me wrong.

well, late here. i never liked etsy. i guess i will change the link once again on my resource page. you keep me on my toes.

i thought of a better, more specific error- last spring, right after starting my blog, some readers were saying it looked like a foreign language. it took a while (& lots of help from grace) to find out it was because i had changed the font- trying to be fancy... i should never mess w/technology.

eva ucgatwork hat gesagt…

well, minor error...
two weeks ago I thought I could help someone in deep trouble.
Compared to the daily errors of so called important people, yes, it was a minor error. I don't think about it as a minor error...but an error it was...

Today I made a special trip to the garden center to buy a bag of compost. I spent over $70.00 on pansies, grass seed, a new watering hose and a few other things. But I forgot to buy the bag of compost!
