I've decided on a new plan for my shops. I'm going to try working smarter not harder (as the saying goes). I'm going to start making more sets of the same design of buttons and earrings at the same time. It's not any less work making the actual items since they're all made one at a time by hand. What will save me time is that I can take the pictures "once" and list a set of 3. We'll see how that goes. This will also help for people that want more than one set of buttons. They won't have to email me to ask for a second set. The listing costs in Etsy will be more and if the design doesn't sell I've invested more than if I had just made one set. Anyway we'll see how it goes. I have a good selection of items so I dont' think I need to keep adding tons of different designs. I'm hoping this will cut down on some of the time for me. The creating time isn't the problem - it's all the added time taking the pictures, writing the descriptions etc. that really adds up. We'll see how this goes..............
