call me stupid

Call me stupid. I paid seven bucks for a showcase spot on Etsy for my new bags I have been working on. Every spare chance in between a hundred other tasks, chores, work and projects, I've been working on these. For February 25. So I thought. Until I looked at my site today and found the site live. Today. February 24. I wrote it down wrong. (Stupid!!) So my big Etsy showcase is a total of two bags, the light too dark on this dismal rainy day, late in the day at that, to hurry and take photos and list more. So much for good intentions. So I am bummed. Time to break out the ice cream and crawl into bed with the heater on, turn on a DVD. At least I have the Mid Atlantic Quilt festival to look forward to. My friend and I are heading there on Friday, early. Day after tomorrow, oh boy! I am more than excited. Inspiration, fabric, who knows what is there because I have never been to one, but I am totally completely psyched! Oh well, that makes me feel better. And last night we walked with Lucy over two streets and down about seven blocks, just to gaze upon our soon to be new apartment. I pictured myself, my husband and our animals all snuggled warmly into the new place, June 1! Cannot wait! Tomorrow- work. Then the quilt festival! Can you tell I am squealing to myself?

You are not the only one in that showcase with only one or two items!

Doh! I hate when that happens! The bags are BEAUTIFUL!

Don't feel like you wasted the opportunity -- I paid for a showcase in the fall and didn't sell ONE thing. The forums are full of people who say that the showcases don't seem to do anything for them, unfortunately. Maybe it's good for exposure, and if so, maybe it will give you some sales later on!

I had no luck with a showcase either, not even very many more views. you didn't miss anything! don't waste your money, you get better results just renewing.

Oh, I am sorry about the showcase. Your bags are gorgeous. They will catch on, I think. It's great you have an event to look forward to. Have fun!

Sorry that the showcase didn't work out as you expected. None the less, your bags are absolutely beautiful!!!!

Oh well, sweet Jennifer, fortunately it's only $7 and a perfect excuse for ice cream and coziness. The quilt show sounds grand and I wish I could go too. Can you tell me where it's at and do a post on it so I can watch for it for next year?
