Blog Attempt #2

So, I discovered this awesome site called Picnik. You can basically touch up your photos fairly easily. For someone like me, who isn't photographically (?) inclined, it's a godsend! I noticed that all the pictures uploading onto Etsy were a little dull. In fact, all the great colors in the the photos just got washed away. I uploaded my pics on Picnik, did some crazy heavy saturation, downloaded them back and uploaded them into Etsy. They look almost normal! But I'm happy the colors pop a bit. I find that Etsy colors tend towards the neutral...I want mine to stand out!

I now have a total of 16 items up. I wish someone could give me a clue as to how in the world I'm supposed to get people to my shop. I tried buying an ad on that showcase thing, but it's next to impossible to get one for jewelry... The next openings won't be open until the end of March! It also seems slightly discouraging because there are so many others doing stamping on silver. However, I AM encouraged by the fact that Silver Enso offers a unique font, and perhaps, it will attract a different audience? I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

On a happy note, the designer I got to work on my banner just re-revised it! It looks amazing!! I can't wait to show it off! I was worried there for a while because it wasn't coming together like I wanted it to. In the end, I had to compromise some of my original ideas b/c of feasibility (and weird things like, Etsy compresses red weird), but it all worked out in the end. She still needs to work on some other banners, avatars and business card, but since she has the main idea down, the rest should go fairly smoothly....I hope.... ;)
