Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp

I, Jaime of Those Greathouse Women, pledge to participate in the Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp to the best of my abilities. I vow to check in every week, do my homework and support my fellow Holiday Boot Campers. I will read the weekly newsletters and blog posts, check in on the weekly forum thread, read the weekly blog post, check off the checklists and salute the mascot. I promise to share what I've learned with those who need it, support my fellow Etsy indiepreneurs and, most of all, have a positive and persistent attitude. I understand that together we can spread the word about our handmade and vintage goods, making this holiday season a more unique and meaningful one to gift givers and give-ees everywhere!

Waiting... and the blackbirds have arrived!

Agh!  I'm still waiting to receive a new cord for my camera so that I can download pictures to my computer.  I can't list anything new!  Since Halloween is upon us, I decided to use my iPhone to take photographs of my blackbird I Spy Bags so they could go ahead and make an appearance.  The photographs have been edited to an inch within their lives in Photoshop, but I think it gets the idea across.  As soon as my new cord arrives, I'll take new beautiful pictures, I promise!

In the meantime, check 'em out!  Any thoughts?

Now we're cookin'!

Those Greathouse Women's studio is in full swing!  Dedicated shipping area, check. Dedicated photographing area, check. Dedicated sewing table, check. Dedicated cutting table, check!  There is even a dedicated counter for sorting trinkets and a computer desk.  Wow!  It sounds bigger and better than it actually is, but my mom and I have made creative use of the space and left no area unused. We probably won't be featured in Where Women Create, but at least we will be able to get A LOT of work done and have some elbow room to dance around if we wish.  You never know when the fancy might strike.

Unfortunately, I am unable at the moment to find the cable that connects my camera to my computer, so we are out of luck on pictures.   Hmph.
