I need help, folks, I need help..
So, I reopened my Etsy shop almost 30 days ago. I am having a ton of fun making my vases.. starting to fool around with some other ideas, won't get into that yet.... But, I am trying to put up a new listing everyday, sometimes not possible, because I don't have one finished and ready for its close-up..
Anyway, so my problem is my pictures in my shop, Please click on my shop to the right and have a look-see! They are boring, they are same same. I do like the white background..I changed from a white sheet (complete with wrinkles - I couldn't get them out!) to a white posterboard, and I have found it works fabulous.. But, I was thinking.. should I put some flowers in them? Should I MAKE some kind of fake flowers, like out of found objects? That is more my style.. and maybe if I get good at that - I can offer those in my shop too.. but this is something else that I would have to teach myself, and I don't know where I would find the time.
SO, should I put a prop in there? Should I pick up some sticks and put them in there? fake Flowers? Real flowers (expensive)? Should I scrap the white background and lay them down in the grass...err..it's Texas..everything is dead here..should I lay them in the brown hay grass then?
I just need ideas to make my pictures better.. ideas? eek.. I don't know!
(Below is a new vase done last night.. I think I'm going to give it to my Mom. It would look nice in her kitchen, I think.)
Oh, and I am not at all marketing my shop yet. The only thing I will do is give a short tweet to a new listing, but I am pretty sure those are all fake views.
I need to work on my banner, my pictures, put more items up.. and then, I will figure out how to promote. Oh, won't that be fun - to see Kristin fumble her way through that. Promoting myself is. Not. My. Thing. But, I will need to make it my thing.
Ok, thanks in advance for your help... and enjoy your day!
It is 75 degrees here. 75! We have been laying on blankets in the backyard, I have been giving the girls playdough manicures. they love it.
