The Yellowed Peacock

    Remember to vote for the handmade ornament exchange! Voting ends this Friday!! The size of our swap has grown from 10 to 14 so I will be making 14 ornaments!! Crazy!  

 So, I jumped on board and started an etsy shop. I'm not gonna lie, I was pretty nervous about opening one. But I just love creating things, and I can't keep everything I create! Seriously, my house is being overrun with projects and decorations, so I decided to sell what I make. :) You can check out my new etsy shop here.
     Why such a funky name? Well, for starters, my favorite color is yellow, so I just knew that had to be in the title! After visiting seeing some peacocks at the zoo this summer, I have been absolutely smitten with them. They are graceful, unique, and have some of the most beautiful colors I have ever seen. So, after being inspired by some peacocks and my favorite color, The Yellowed Peacock etsy shop was born!
     It has taken me a few weeks to get everything set up. First I had to get the guts to actually start a shop. Then,  I had to design my own banner and logo, which I did using Picnik. Oh, how I love that website!

Here's my button...



and here's my little shop banner!


          I then had to set up all my shop policies, shipping policies, etc., which took some research. But I'm excited to have my shop open!
       Have any of you ever opened an etsy shop? If you have, then you need to give me some pointers! You can also leave me a comment with a link to your shop, and I'll check it out!
     Now, if you are browsing my shop and see something you like, but want different colors, then let me know! I can do custom orders.  Happy shopping!!

  2. I love it! Your name is perfect! Etsy is so much fun. We started selling on Etsy 4 years ago: http://www.etsy.com/shop/LadybugWireworks. Now we mostly just sell through our websites (www.wirecardholders.com) and Amazon, but we still keep our Etsy shop up and running with the few handcrafted products we still sell.
