It has been quite some time since you have had an update from Crafts Etc.

Life here has been ticking along quite nicely although to be honest I really would love a holiday and think perhaps that while I won’t close my online stores, I will take a week where I don’t do quite as much!! We will see! Taking time off when you work from home can be quite difficult, for me anyway!

Life in General

My life still revolves around my adorable adult puppy Poppy, the wee pet has now gone blind but she still continues to live every day to the fullest, keep me entertained and pretend that she is still a puppy (she is almost 16!). She also spends some of her time with my Mum who she adores and of course Mum adores her and totally spoils her. I can’t imagine life without Popps and don’t want to think about it!

eBay

Life as a reseller has had its ups and downs this year but I decided to take a step back a few months ago and reassess. I removed a lot of old stock, took some to a car boot sale, re-donated some and opened a Depop store for the rest. I also added some back into my store with new photos and descriptions. All in all the work I have done seems to have paid off and I am now more content with how things are going.

The link to all my stores is under the Shop tab on this website. (except for Depop, I will add it soon)

Depop

Depop has to be the easiest platform I have ever listed on. I am pleased to say I have lots of potential customers liking items but as yet no sales. I am still very positive and honestly when I weigh up the time it took me to get it up and running and that it doesn’t cost me anything, I am more than happy to keep it going.

Etsy

I have 3 x Etsy stores although only two are linked in the Shop tab.

I will add the Crafts Etc Art shop below as I haven’t added a link to it anywhere else. It is a digital download shop with mockups, virtual backgrounds and some clip art. I haven’t done a lot of work on this for quite some time but am currently adding new products. Creating them and the mockups to go along with them takes some time but I really do enjoy it.

Crafts Etc ArtCrafts Etc Home and Gift Store is a collection of Craft Supplies, Handmade Gifts, Garden and Home Decor. Yes…. I know it’s quite a mix! I have lots of products to add to this store including my Handmade Felt Keyrings. I am adding new products almost every day as I always like to be active on my stores.

Other Projects

I have a few other creative projects but I will save them for another time. Thank you to everyone who has read this far, I really do appreciate it. If you have any questions at all please feel free to contact me at heather@craftsetconline.com. I will aim to get back to you within 24 hours.

Thank you to everyone who has joined my newsletter, I apologise for not having sent any as yet – this is another project I really do want to fit into my business life and will hopefully get to it soon.

Wishing you all a wonderful day. Heather from Crafts Etc
