Not only did I bring back the pet rock, I've gone one step further. All of my pet rocks have one thing in common. Googly eyes and wire rim glasses, and all natural markings that make each one of my little finds unique. No two are ever the same and each one has its own personality. Tell me what you think!

I've been trying to find a way to get more views to my shop. I've gotten so disgusted trying to no avail. I've even gone the "I quit" route until one little sale would be sitting there getting me all fired up with hope. It's not that I haven't been successful. I've had 379 sales since January of 2009 and I have 100% positive feedback from all of my satisfied and even charmed customers.
Things are just slow now and now is the time I really need the sales.
How do you bring up your sales without spending the money to promote through advertising? It's getting harder and harder to stay in business. I have tried using coupon codes. I now include a business card with a coupon code with every item I send out and it did bring in a few more sales. If there are any secrets out there let me know.
For now here's a gift just for reading my blog. 25% off anything in my already reduced price shop using coupon code: wish4
(And if you do purchase something please send me a message and tell me you read my blog and I'll send you a free hand stitched gift along with your purchase).

I'm doing it again! I'm trying to create more items that also appeal to teens and adults.
I have tote bags, cell phone cases, fabric key chains, a wallet and clutch.
The clutch I just added was something that I created for myself and is one of my favorite items. It was time consuming and aggravating at times and the price reflects that but it's time to part with it. I decided not to keep it after all. I'm adding it to my Etsy shop. I really need the sales right now and this is one of the most awesome items in my stock.
I'm also trying to come up with more crazy and cute prints for the paper and plastic wallets I'm making. Thats still in the works.
I have some very cool cell phone cases I must say. Tie dyes, zebra and more.
My tiny tote bag keychains have a vera bradley style. Still looking for more sweet fabrics.
Come by my shop to take a look! If just for a smile ;) See ya there, Kathie :)

Over 2 years on Etsy and I still feel like a Newbie always trying to find my way. Well I'm trying something new. A new line of little, kind of sweet monster type looking things called "Wish with me pets". Take a look and let me know what you think. I'm wondering if I should keep on going and add more or stop here. I've had them posted for a few days now and still no takers :( O well that's the business. Anyway here they are :) Hope to hear from some of you. Thanks for visiting, Kathie :)

This is the biggest time of year for me when it comes to anything tiny. If your familiar with my shop you know I have quite a few tiny hand stitched creations from animals to dolls. The Christmas tree pictured here is actually a 2 floor tiny guinea pig hutch. Come by for a visit and check them out if only to stop by just for a smile and a giggle. Happy Holidays! Kathie :)
