Etsy Sellers?

Hi! I’ve recently (3 weeks ago) opened an Etsy shop for cross-stitching. So far, I have over 80 views and zero sells.


At the moment, I am completely happy enough with views. I have about 4 other projects going on at the moment that take up all my time, so that’s fine. Just wondering if anyone has any tips for policies, item descriptions, listing tags, shipping/taxing issues, whatever. Please comment or email me at LazyarN@Gmail.com

๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks!

Links within. Progress Report:

So, I put my first 2 listings on Etsy May 11th and 12th. Those 2 item listings have 10 and 11 views (respectively). I listed a new item 2 days ago and it already has 11 views! Sexy!ย https://www.etsy.com/shop/LazyarnStitches

I haven’t made any sells yet, but that is quite ok with me! I’ve got 3 other cross-stitch projects going on at once while working on sewing new curtains for my living room, AND trying to establish the Lazyarn name across several social networking sites.

In the meantime, I’m getting all of my custom order needs sorted out, including uploading pictures of examples/choices! See what I mean here:ย http://lazyarn.imgur.com/

I’m gaining more followers everyday!ย https://twitter.com/Lazyarn

And I post a variety of different content on both my Facebook and my Tumblr accounts!

I’m also on Pinterest and Google+

Thanks for stopping by! Contact me if you have any questions about my process or ordering a pattern! LazyarN@Gmail.com


Work in Progress

Work in Progress

The photo is my current work in progress. I’ve been more excited about getting my stuff straight for the Etsy store and the Lazyarn name. I haven’t been paying enough attention to it but I’m off 2 days of the next 6 so hopefully, I will make some good progress! ๐Ÿ™‚

Trying to figure out all the tax details for selling on Etsy is kind of a headache though! Any tips or advice? Leave a comment or email me at Lazyarn@Gmail.com
Any tips or experiences are welcome!


Possible Business Card Design


Designed this is just a few minutes this morning. First look right here! Haven’t posted this anywhere else because I wanted to pay my WP some attention. ๐Ÿ˜‰
This is 23×44 squares and is pretty much the same size as a regular business card. 3.5×2″ ๐Ÿ˜€

I plan to stitch one soon and see how I like it.

Would you be interested in a business card design? Hit me up!




Lots of new TWEETS with Pinterest links. Check em’ out! Pretty cool x-stitches on Etsy. Some are no longer for sale, but still awesome!

Check out my Etsy shop, too! Gotta get some new listings up, but I’m in the middle of a big request stitch! ๐Ÿ™‚

Been away for a minute…

Hello! I seem to be paying more attention to my other sites! If you want to see what I’ve been up to and what I’ve been sharing in other places, here are some links!




Hi followers and newcomers!

I have revamped my Etsy listings! You should check them out! Working on getting some more listings up ๐Ÿ™‚
