Eggs Eggs Eggs!!
I have been using ever minute of spare time scratching eggs! Some new designs and some old! In the next two weeks I will have 2 craft shows here as well as 2 to 3 in my home town. In other words I will have to mail half my inventory home to my mother who will be selling for me there as well.
This is exciting, because Etsy is a little slow right now. I hope to make some great Easter sales instead at the shows. However, I am behind... I have over 50 eggs created, but I have a sneaky feeling that dividing that in two and over 5 shows will not be enough.
I planned for this however. If you have been reading, you'd know I bought about 25 to 30 dozen eggs when they were on sale! Here is round 2 on that buying frenzy:
I also have 5 dyes going at once right now, red, blue, lilac, golden wheat, and patina.
I hope to star a mushroom soon. Last night, Rob (boyfriend) and I bought 3 more pairs of tongs to hold the eggs in the dye. Hopefully that will make the dying process go a little faster.
Right now my fridge is filled with eggs. We ate 4 quiche so far, and will be making another round of them in order to get me some shells without wasting the egg. I should take a photo of my fridge so you can see what I am talking about.
My goal is to get 4 eggs done a night in addition to card making and homework. I lucked out and a paper draft that would have been due tomorrow has been extended until next Tuesday. Thank God!
I hope to be able to send 3 dozen to my mom and still have at least 3 dozen for myself as well.
Also I have cards to make. I wonder if people would rather see Spring themed cards or more Birthdays and thank you cards. I never know how to gauge themes of cards people may want.
I will also be working on ideas for advertising online as well as in Pittsburgh. I currently am toying with the idea of advertising on facebook with a paid ad. Has anyone ever tried it? If so, what are your thoughts? Anyone advertising online somewhere? Any thoughts?
Wish me luck on the egg crafting adventure! I'll post more as I get more done. For now, Here is a new egg design or two I did this weekend and love! All are for sale on my Etsy Shop!
Thanks for looking! Have a great day! And as always, comments are appreciated!
