I remember now why it took me so long to open up my shop in the first place.
Yesterday I decided to add my zentangle cards to stock, as I’ve got a few made up ready to go, so I opened etsy and signed in.
Wait, I need photos of the cards first.
I set them up and took a few photos – rubbish photos because it was starting to get dark, but I figured they would do as placeholders until I could take better ones.
But wait, if somebody actually buys one it might get damaged in the post.
Over to Amazon, where I lost half an hour comparing various plastic wallets and board-backed envelopes, and trying to decide which size(s) would be best to get. That’s another £20 closer to just not tracking how much I’ve spent on this shop with no return because it’s becoming too much to think about.
Right. Those should arrive tomorrow so let’s get the cards listed at last.
Oh wait, I wanted to take proper photos of them so I can get a run printed instead of them just being one-offs. But now it’s dark and there’s no hope of getting quality pictures.
You know what, never mind. I’ll just go to bed.
So my little shop is still sitting there with only 4 items in stock and not a thing sold. But at least I thought about the board-backed envelopes now, and I’ll have some ready when I finally sell my first card. That’s quite organised for me!
