Just a quick update to let you know how things are going and they’re moving along quicker than expected which is a good thing. I’m still working behind the scenes and getting to grips with making changes on this site but it seems to be going okay so far, there is just a lot admin and drafting of important docs involved but it should be up and running by my end of summer deadline, which is to be ready for a September launch.
So if you look to the top of the page, you’ll see a newsletter subscribe button, if not click on the drop down arrow in the far right corner.
This will keep you up to date on when the shop goes live, also special offers, project updates, events etc. Don’t worry, I understand that newsletter can be annoying, so I will only ever send when I have information to share and not just for the sake of it. I also won’t be butthurt if you unsubscribe at any point.
As for this site I’m still debating on the format. I don’t think my shop area is going to be that big as I want to concentrate more or producing art pieces but I will be releasing a knitted scarf collection for the winter because I need to use up two giant storage tubs worth of yarn! But I’m basically setting myself up to produce way more art and writing next year. Everything takes longer when you’re one person and I need to keep reminding myself on that but the wheels are still in motion and that is what is important right now. It might look like I’ve dropped off the face of the planet for a while but I haven’t.
Other quick news, my main Etsy is on sale until July 16th when I’m shutting it down because stats and sales are so low it’s no longer worth my time. Everything is 30% until then and then I’m going to move it over to my website.
My old Etsy shop is also still open but probably will also close on the 16th for the same reasons. I’m continuing to upload stuff to eBay in a bid to make some space but I might take a small break over summer. And that’s about it for this update, I’m still deciding whether to keep a blog for this, start a whole new blog and go back to my creative blogging roots, or just do portfolio work. I’ll update you when I’ve made a decision but as always thoughts and comments are welcome.
