All My Time is Spent on the Computer!!

It seems like my designing and creating time has taken a backseat to working on the computer these past few weeks. But I did accomplish a lot!

I opened a second Etsy Shop for all my non-beaded creations called "Dangles By Linda." You can look at it by clicking here. I have lots of work to do yet taking pictures and uploading all the info to the site.

I also opened a website on eCRATER (it's free!) and you can look at my pages by clicking here. Again, lots of work yet to be done, but it's a start.

I also signed up for Google Checkout. I've always (and still do) use PayPal, but didn't think adding another option would be a bad thing.

I spent time yesterday in one of the Virtual Labs on Etsy. Chatted with lots of fellow Etsians, got questions answered by an Esty person, and learned how to fling hearts and paper airplanes across the virtual room. I also learned how to do "show and tell" in the virtual lab.

I learned how to do an Etsy-mini and posted it here on my blog. I also learned more about widgets and how to add them to my sites. I also learned how to add a picture of one of my products to Google Base (don't ask).

I did get one more bracelet finished (I know, I said I needed to stop making bracelets and work on my challenge piece). You can find a picture of it here.

I have made a promise to myself that tomorrow is going to be spent on creating - no more computer work! My husband is off on a fishing trip to Mexico, so I can really make a mess!

I wish everyone a Happy New Year! Stay Safe.


  1. Wow, you did accomplish a lot! Makes me think I need to become a bit more internet savvy myself.

  2. Debra, love the bracelet. I too have an Ecrater shop...called GrandmaMarilyns (What else?). I got Google checkout with it too. I added it to my Etsy site also. Great minds do think alike. LOL

  3. I left a comment earlier today. I don't see it here yet. I have a shop on ecrater myself. It is called GrandmaMarilyns also. I also got a Google checkout account and added it to my Etsy shops also.

  4. Happy New Year!
    I love your second shop, btw ;)
    Good luck with everything!
