No clients so I'm taking the day for Etsy

I have no clients scheduled at the salon so I'm taking the day to work on my etsy shop SliversofMagick . My goal is to have at least 15 items posted by the end of the day.
I figure if I pick one day a week where I have no one coming in to take off then I can make enough items to post for that week. It's funny how a hobby that I do to stay awake watching TV may end up saving my salon. I have to keep aiming high.
My plan is to make enough on etsy to not have to go out in the parking lot and fish. That would free up at least 2 hours a day more to write. Which in turn would lead to faster publication (fingers numb from crossing!) and me making money doing what I love.
It's a solid plan and since I didn't have anyone scheduled I can start it today. Maybe soon I can take 2 days off and use one to clean house. =)
I figured out how to link to the shop on my sidebar. I added a page that goes straight to it. This is so cool! It only took me how many days?
Life is great!!!


  1. Great! The Etsy link worked -- very nice jewelry -- makes me wish I wore more jewelry than I do.

    Are you doing any advertising for your hair salon? I'm thinking of lower cost things like flyers in mailboxes or local neighbourhood newspapers/"coffee news" pages, etc.

  2. I advertise on Craigslist, Facebook, twitter, any any other free way I can. I can't afford paid adds yet but hopefully soon.

  3. So glad to hear that you are feeling great. The ladybugs are very cute.

    1. Thanks! I like them too and hope to find more someday. They were originally a bracelet I think.
