New shop on Etsy
« on: February 10, 2013, 10:35:44 am »
Hi, I've just summoned up all my courage and started a shop on Etsy. After teaching for nearly forty years, I've resigned and am following my passions. Apart from my affair with my Thermie I love making things. Mostly silver jewellery and glass beads, but also felting and crochet.

Can I be ignorant and ask what Etsy is?

Congratulations on such a wonderful thing to do for yourself!! I'm afraid I'm like Judy, though. Could you explain what Etsy is?? :)

Congratulations Alexis. What a career change. After teaching you will be qualified to do all sorts of things.

Thanks everyone. I can't work out how to do the link, but for the moment the shop is called Bags of Silver Scarves. I haven't put much up yet as I'm still learning - or trying to!

Is this the one Alexis?

No it wasn't so I removed the link.  Katie has found the correct one  :-*

No, JD, but it might be this one. I'm a bit hopeless.
