In the works

Please excuse the terrible photos, I lost today's light and my batteries were dieing. These are some things I spent working on last night and this morning. What do you guys think of them?

They're all made of paper and have been painted and/or have been accented with quilling or beads.

2011 Goals

Coming up with goals was sort of difficult for me. In the past I had made goals of how many things I wanted to sell per month and most of the time it wouldn't turn out to well. So I thought I would save myself the disappointment and the wondering of why people don't want to purchase my things.

This year I figured I would just try to keep the ball rolling and try to improve what I've built up AngelasPaperArt to be. I have put a lot of sweat and tears into this shop in the 6 months that it's been open and maybe a little blood from blisters lol. But this year I want to learn more about SEO and things of that nature to help increase the awareness of my store. I think that if I continue what I have been doing, but with more knowledge about things, it would help me a lot.

I also want to blog more and increase my number of followers. I would like to work on better descriptions for my items...any suggestions? I want to list regularly so that my sections are a little more full and I have more options available for customers.

This upcoming year I would love to be one of the top paper bead sellers on etsy, so I'm hoping the whole paper bead thing isn't a trend. I love making them and everyone who has bought them from me has loved them so far. I also want to push myself in the quilling department and try to have new and exciting quilled things.

I've learned that you can't make people buy your things. But you have to try hard and promote yourself and your product and hope that they will catch on and realize that you have something special to offer. This years goals are sort of more about pushing myself in a way and becoming better at what I do.

I wish everyone good luck this upcoming year and hope everyone has a happy and safe new years and hopefully everyone will help push each other this year. And remind each other that we all made these goals to try and stick to them and help each other achieve them.

And I want to say thank you to all of those who helped AngelasPaperArt become what it did this year. I appreciate the support from everyone.

BNR Treasury Today!!!

There is a great bnr treasury going on right now that the promotional frenzy thread is doing. It opened half an hour ago and there is already 3 sales! So come on over and get in on the action.

It's very simple, just come over. Say who you would like to buy from and your shop will replace the person in which you bought from. If you don't want to buy into it you can come and chat with some new people.
