Check out this cool video that one of the members of Etsy made.  She was so gracious to feature my handmade soaps and announce my participation in the upcoming Christmas in July promotion on Etsy.  Click here to visit the Etsy shop of the person who created the videos, and LOL, no it wasn’t me.  Click here to visit my Etsy shop that features the soaps shown.

Red or Black Licorice Drops - Yummy by Elva on Etsy

Etsy Treasury: Red or Black Licorice Drops - Yummy

My earrings were featured in this treasury by another member on Etsy.  They are the black and white ones on the top left side with the black swirl on a white background.  I really enjoy making jewelry and was excited to see a piece of mine featured.  Each one of the pieces shown in this treasury was made by a member of the Caribbean Team on Etsy.  I make treasuries for the team, too.  When I get a chance, I will post some of them.  The ones that I make are usually about half members of the Caribbean team and half from other sellers on Etsy.

Here is a photo of just my earrings.

What do you think?  Are you a person who likes large earrings or small ones?  Please share your thoughts.

As part of creating to share with others by selling to them, we need places for others to view, enjoy, and (hopefullly) buy what we have created.  Some of us show in our own stores.  I do have a tiny B and M (brick and mortar) store, but with a full time job I am only able to be open on Saturday.  Do you have a B and M store?  Have you ever wanted to have one or did you have one in the past?  What was your experience like, especially if you did not have one full-time?  Please share your helpful hints here or anything else would like about this topic.  This is the first in a series of posts about where we as creative people display and sell what we create. The photo is one taken in my store (JDNatlady's Creations, LLC) when I first opened.
