Dear Sunday: My New Project

Dear Sunday is my weekly post participating in the Caffeinated Book Reviewer series. This week I'm also doing a brief Stacking the Shelves and have also linked up with  tyngas reviews

Hello! This past week has been manic as I decided subconsciously to say yes to all the things and as such my schedule skyrocketed. Luckily for my sanity, all of my new ventures did not pan out so this week will be a bit quieter. But, I do have an exciting new venture to share with y'all! I've opened an Etsy shop (well the opening of the shop isn't terribly new, but putting stuff in it is!) and have listed my first piece, the one pictured on the left! It's a little craft I recently started doing and thought I would give Etsy a go-- I have several really cool pieces I'm working on currently (including one featuring a TARDIS) and I can't wait to list them.

I've tried selling art before on Etsy to mitigated success. If it turns out that no one wants to buy my art then I already have some friends in mind to gift them to. :)

On to the books! Oo...I wonder if I could do some book inspired wire art? Any idea/suggestions?
           

I've had two more Netgallery wishes get granted! This Side of Murder is by one of my favorite murder mystery authors and The Beautiful Ones looked too interesting to pass up.

  • Review: A Curious Beginning by Deanna Raybourn
  • .....stay tuned!
That's about it! What about you? Do you/have you ever had an Etsy store? How did it work out for you?

  1. Good luck with the Etsy shop! I don't really know how that works, but I hope you are able to get some good advice on how to proceed.

  3. I hope you'll have good luck with the Etsy shop, however it can be tough to get into since everyone sells something on there now. We once had an Etsy shop too, but it didn't work too well. But a TARDIS! That is cool :)
    I have also had an extremely busy week, maybe even too busy :D I'll be glad to (hopefully?) stay in more next week.
    Have a great time reading, and selling on Etsy :)

  4. Good luck with your shop! I love to shop on Etsy (I don't run my own shop). You've reminded me I need to start thinking of Christmas presents . . .

    I love the sound of your new books, especially This Side of Murder. I hope you enjoy both of them.

    Have a great week!

  6. Good luck with your Etsy shop! I love the picture and will have to go check it out! I've got to start Wishing for things on NetGalley. I occasionally do but more often than not I don't. I've been really wanting to try Anna Lee Huber. Have a great week!
