New Products - Premade Scrapbook Pages

This week I want to introduce some new products that I am adding to my Etsy shop. I have done Scrapbooking for about a decade and have always received rave reviews. So, I thought I would take a break from Jewelry making to create some Premade Scrapbook pages. These are designed so that all you have to do is add your pictures.

So far, the themes I have are Christmas, Autumn, Thanksgiving, Winter and Halloween.

I can also do custom scrapbook pages. Just visit my Etsy shop at and convo me about what you need.

Thank you for visiting and have a great week!

Etsy Search Ads

As many of you may know, Etsy started a new promotion gimmick called Etsy Search Ads. The premise is that when someone performs a search on Etsy, items related to that search would show up at the top of the search results for those shops/items that purchased search ads. Sounds good, right? So, I thought I would give it a try for a week and see what happened.

The results are in - with 11 hours left on my week, I have received 3,209 "impressions". In other words, an ad for one of my items showed up 3,209 times. Out of that, I received only 6 views - no favorites and no orders. Conclusion - I don't think it is worth it, at least not for me. Perhaps, others found it more productive. If you have tried the search ads, I would love to hear about your results and conclusions!

At least I gave it a try!

Here are some lovely Treasuries from people who were kind enough to include items from my shop. Thank you so very much!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!
