1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Is Etsy just for the US? on: April 07, 2009 02:37:11 AM
I'm in Sweden and my shop is going well, but I of course Etsy still feels very American. I offer people within Sweden to order by e-mail instead and pay in SEK, not dollars - that would be ridiculous and expensive. I wish you could choose currencies on Etsy and also that it would be easier to navigate for those who aren't used to shopping on English sites.

The postage for the items I sell is only between $2 and $10.50 worldwide (a piece) and shipping typically takes around 4-5 days.

3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: How's your Etsy shop doing now? on: April 07, 2009 02:22:46 AM
I started on February 17th and was sooo happy to sell something that first, nerve-wrecking night! I've sold 44 items internationally and a number of photographs / notebooks etc within Sweden - those who live in my country can order via e-mail or phone so they don't have to pay in dollars and so forth.

So I think I'm doing well but things really need to improve more. I'm looking to sell retail / in larger amounts as gifts to employees etc and will send little PR folders with my photographs, collages and books to interior design magazines. I don't think it's enough to sell every single thing myself on Etsy, even if 5 large photos a day would be enough to make a living.

It depends on what kind of paper you use (how strong it is). I like to use acrylic paint more or less watered down. Haven't really tried to wipe it off to show text underneath - well, I did once and it didn't work well, dried too fast in the book I was using. I prefer to add more water to make it transparent. Trial and error, I guess Smiley

I didn't mean perfect binding; I meant making an accordion VVVVVV of a separate piece of paper and gluing the book pages inside each of the Vs. Should be much more secure than perfect bound.
7  PAPER CRAFTS, SCRAPBOOKING & ATCs (ARTIST TRADING CARDS) / Paper Crafts: Discussion and Questions / Re: "What do YOU Journal About?!" Ideas thread! on: April 04, 2009 11:59:25 AM
I've posted here before but never thought to say (admit) this:

I journal what I want to happen.

My wishes.

And strangely enough they tend to come true...

With my new business I have yet to sit down and write new goals for myself but I will. The wishes I write can be anything - "Please x, contact me" and so on - and it seems to work really well even when it's not goals I set for myself and gravitate / work towards them.

I was also going to suggest you mail things to yourself - you'll have lots of exciting envelopes when you come home! Cheesy

If you need watercolours you could carry just a few watercolour pencils and a brush or regular watercolours in just red,blue,green,yellow,black and mix everything with them. I have a small mint tin (decorated, of course!;) ) with just four colours and one of those brushes you fill with water.

Bring a lightweight, sturdy journal. I always regret it when I bring too heavy books (which is partly why I started designing my own).

Oh, and keep your journal in a little plastic envelope or bag in case you spill something or get caught in the rain!
