[sticky post] My Etsy shop  
Hi, everyone!

I am a lifelong crafter, and I decided to open a shop on Etsy as a way to bring in a little more income and help pay down my student loans.

My shop is called Crafting Heart to Heart. I specialize in making woven heart ornaments, like the one below:



They come in many different colors, and I'm more than happy to take custom orders with specific colors. (Please see my shop for details. :) ) They're perfect gifts for any occasion or holiday, and don't forget to treat yourself too!

Every ornament takes 2 to 3 days to make. Each heart measures approx. 3 and 1/2 inches across at the widest point of the heart, and 2 and 3/4 inches from the bottom tip of the heart to its highest point. They are is 1 and 1/8 inches thick.

I hope that you'll check out my work!

If you want to know more, please feel free to post a comment below, or contact me through Etsy.

Take care and God bless!

These are so cute. I might want to get one for a friends birthday. Have to check finances first.

Thank you so much! I'm glad you like them.

Please don't worry if you can't get one - I completely understand what it's like when finances are tight. Just your interest means a lot. :) (Though if you do decided to get one, let me know it's you and I'll give you a ten percent discount - I'm sorry it can't be more!)

Thanks, but if I do get one I insist on paying full price. My Con sister's bday is coming up at the end of this months and this would be a lovely thing to get her. I want to get her something special. I just need to figure out color. I'll be in touch.

Okay, full price it is. I just wanted to make the offer, since if you do get one, you would be my first customer, and I figure that warranted a chance at a special discount, even if that makes me sound like an infomercial. :) (If I start saying things like, "And that's not all!" or "For the low, low price of just $19.95!" please poke me or something, lol.)

Thanks again for your interest!

One of my Facebook friends launched a small crafting business. It's clever, as I too have a lot to pay off lol, but how experienced should one be to get a sizeable profit? Then there's the factor of material costs...

I once tried selling things on Craigslist but all I got were scam replies so that put me off of that place for a while...

I'm sorry it's taken me a few days to answer this! Very cool. What sorts of crafting does your friend do?

Thank you! I have yet to turn any sort of profit, so I can't say much there, lol. :) But, on the bright side, I love to give these ornaments as gifts. If the business doesn't pan out (as it hasn't so far) then I might just use my stock as Christmas presents.

I'm sorry that you had that sort of experience on Craigslist! That's miserable.
