So I have started on the crawl to learn about how to advertise myself. I have found this fun site where you give your link and then review and visit other sites to tempt others to come to your site. Joined today and started. It will be interesting to see the traffic that comes here and if any results come from it. When I do more on the website I will link that one up too. If you're interested in this click the link button in my link list - the one under etsy.

Talking of the web site. I emailed Rob explaining how I wouldn't be able to go up for the training as yet and he's sending me a manual. Yay! I'll be able to start doing stuff.

In the interests of advertising my wares I'm joining DUST - Down Under Street Team. This is a group of Australians involved with etsy who are joining together to help with promotion. Here is the pic.

Well, finally ClayGraphia has her new banner up. I like it, it's bold and clear. Hopefully Rob will send it down to me soon and I can put it up in the etsy shop for her. I emailed Rob with some requests a while ago, just things to do on the site but nothing has been done. I wonder how I handle this. The problem is, that I was expecting to visit him much sooner than this for my lesson in how to do the updates on the site myself but Marjo is so busy that I can't get up there to visit. Tis a dilemma. I wonder if I can learn on instant messenger? I'd love to get the site looking better. Everything moves so much slower than you want or expect. Oh well.

The good news is, that I've had a few hits to the site via the ads I've put up over the place. That is a good sign.

Took my jewellery into school last week and set it all out. Sold 10 things. Not bad going. Also had several orders placed. This is encouraging. It's just I need these sales more often. Here's some things I sold...

Well, the designer quest is over and done. Nobody voted for my piece! People have no taste. I'll just assume that, as they closed the site while voting should have been taking place that people have forgotton to vote.

I have been gradually changing the galleries on my website. Logged into the manager part the other day but am not brave enough to change anything yet. It's a shame it's going to be so long before I can get to Rob for my training.

I have finished my pendants from Stiletto Heights. My 'Stiletto Collection' is now for sale at etsy. Here is what they look like. I really enjoyed the coiling and will do a lot more of it.
