Zibbet, Zibbet, Zibbet

If you have an Etsy shop and haven't signed up for a Zibbet shop yet follow this link and check it out.

The basic account has no listing fees so get some exposure and promo for free. If those Etsy fees are adding up you might want to think about a premium Zibbet account for just $7.00 a month. Take your regular Etsy buyers with you and save. It cost about $6.00 a month to list one item a day on Etsy and you'll pay even more if you make sales. So if you plan to list daily and make sales a premium account on Zibbet makes sense.

I plan to keep my Etsy shop for now but my focus is shifting more and more towards Zibbet and the great community on there.

See you on Zibbet!!!!

Censorship Rant

I need to rant about something that bugs me about the US TV networks. Why is there an issue when someone utters a curse word on live tv at midnight but it is perfectly ok for NBC to air trailers for R rated movies such as the new Wolfman movie during the Today show. My 3 year old was watching with me for the snow reports and got pretty upset, the trailer has some pretty gruesome stuff in it. There seems to be hardly any censorship when it comes to violence which I think is far more damaging than the odd curse word at midnight.

There, I vented, phew.

New Post At Last

I've been quiet for a while. My little girl started preschool last week and things have been settling down to a new routine.

We finally got some snow last week and this but it's not sticking around. Most of it has melted over the past two days. There is talk of more to come next week but I doesn't sound like it will be much.

I am going to get back to work making cards and other paper goodies this week. Easter is around the corner so look for some pastel colors coming soon.

For now, here is the latest addition to my store. I posted this and some more upcycled origami stars today.

Etsy Chat Room Abuse

I am staying out of the Etsy chat rooms for a while. I am going to host a team chat tonight but that has a password on the room so the person who was being nasty today will be kept out. I can't believe what happened. I changed the title on the fs room a couple of times to some silly things like "That's what she said" and for the next 2 hours someone was changing the title telling people not to buy from me and other horrible things.

Why do people do it. They are so brave that they wouldn't even make the comments in the chat. They just did it anonimously by changing the room title.

I'm still going to be active in the Etsy community, just in the forums not the chat rooms.

Etsy Find of the Day 2/2/2010

Today's find of the day is this beautifully crafted bottle stopper from, take the time to read the store announcement and item descriptions for details of how these gorgeous items are constructed.
