new etsy shop!



Hello! I opened an etsy store called Enchanted Adornments by cynthiathornton the other day, after months of hemming and hawing on whether or not to do it. I wanted a way to sell some of our limited run items (besides the shows, since so many folks can't make it to them). In a way, its a good draw for people to come to the shows. Its far easier to make a bunch of new things and carry them to the shows, but I'll take some of the special goods and upload them to my new little store. So far, it has been fairly easy to figure out, but I'm pretty slow at adding things since I'm such a perfectionist. It takes me forever to take good pictures, then write a description.


I really enjoy shopping on etsy, browsing through the listings and stores, knowing I'm buying handmade. I feel like I'm helping the economy by supporting small businesses like myself. Besides, its pretty nice to stay at home and not run around wasting gas and time hunting for a parking spot (one of my pet peeves - especially when I have to parrallel park, or when there's loads of folks competing for spots, like our downtown). Anyway, if you get a chance, stop by!

I'm so thrilled that I happened to check my reader shortly after you posted this! That lovely "Luna Moth Fairy" immediately caught my eye and I had to have her! She's beautiful!

congratulations on your new etsy shop - your fairy is just beyond beautiful... i am so happy that your very distinctive work will be there... and yes, it is time consuming... you will learn to love 'copy' when you have items that are even remotely similar - it saves a lot of work... you just have to tweak your details instead of redoing the entire thing...

Yea! I am slow to add things as well. I wish it were even simpler than it already is! I will add you to my favorites, because I am a Green Girl hoarder!
Enjoy the day!

Yay! Such a great thing to do!
Don't forget us poor people living overseas. We can't make it to the shows :P and we sigh and drool and try to find a way for a chance to get our hands on some of your limited pieces :P

I'm having a look as soon as I get paid my latest translation :)
Thanks!
