N.........ew Year's shop goals

Setting goals is important any time of year, but January seems a better time than most. Prompted by the Etsy Bloggers, I set out to form this year's goals of my Etsy shop. Over many years, I've learned to keep goals reasonable and considering the economy I've decided to feature smaller, practical items. There will still be some new baskets and Christening Gowns, but for now I'm concentrating on scrubbies and scrubbie dishcloths. The latter are washer and dryer friendly, and the small scrubbies can be washed in the dishwasher. Just because they're practical, it doesn't mean they can't be attractive, and they're offered in sets of two or six to keep costs down. As you can also see, our beautiful Katydid has decided to "help" me attain my goal, and posed on my make shift light box. She and her brother, Kirby, are often seen in "helpful" mode, lying on the bed as I'm trying to make it, jumping in the dryer when it's warm, and sitting on my lap as I try to craft. How could anyone attain goals without them?

SCRUBBIES CAN BE ATTRACTIVE AND EVEN SEXY:-)
I LOVE YOUR KITTY!

cute kitties! I seem to be selling a lot of little things, here on Etsy and at the Museum. That's not bad! When I looked at my database, I see a lot of small items amounting to a large sum. Good luck with your goals and thanks for participating in the carnival!

I agree with making smaller items--3/4 of what I sell is in the $10 or under range, and you know, a few of those can add up!

Very pretty scrubbies! They remind me a bit of doilies.
