A new friend, and some plans

Hey Guys,

With these Etsy groups around my online shop, I’ve met with a lot of people. Some of them are friendly, and we can help each other. I’ve met with a crafter from there, she is making beautiful jewelry, and I’ve bought something as a wedding gift for someone. We started to talk about our problems with our shops, etc., and the ideas just started to come! First of all:

– I have newer tried to go to any Craft Fair. In Hungary, I don’t even know if there is many or few, but mostly, you are only hearing about one of them: the biggest one, where all the “cool stylists, designers, etc.” are showing their stuffs… they are curating, who can be there, and who is not allowed, so… I just didn’t think about that. But now, I am so inspired of those. Bea (the other crafter) went to a Christmas fair last year, and she was so excited about that, so she started to dig out some places. Now, we have our first plan together: we are going to deal with this new thing together. 🙂

– With that, a lot of new ideas came: if we are going to a craft fair, we should have some business cards – maybe together, with some percent off coupon codes, etc…

– Then… we should create a Facebook page with our beloved jewelry – we are doing different things, and will get 2-3 more artists to create something AWESOME together… – A third jewelry maker just joined to us.. 🙂

… so … I am so inspired, we have a lot of ideas, and ofc., we have to work a lot on these things, but finally, we can be cheerful if some of us is successful! 🙂

Here is some beautiful jewelry she makes – I bet, you’ll get more info about our plans soon… 🙂

New photo style

As I mentioned before, I’ve got some help, how to create better photos from my jewelries. First of all, I’ve created like 700 pictures with a bit lighter background – but that was felt. Some of the pictures are better, some of them are not, but I now, I’ve got some really good advices. Here are the results (it’s still not perfect, but I like the way of that…)

These are my favorites now. These, and some others are already in my shop.

In Etsy, I’ve joined to some groups, and lot’s of the people are so friendly and helpful. I’ve created new photos from all of my jewelry, and in every day, I am getting new mails and feedback, how could I improve my shop. I’ll make new photos again, and my newest items are already have better photo shots. How do you making your photos about your creations? Do you have any common style for that, or just making it quick?

Denim projects from an old newspaper

Hello Guys,

My son always trying to reach my bookcases, and getting all of my old newspapers. Sometimes we are sitting down, and reading a bit. Some days ago he found a magazine (Praktika), and look what we saw inside: some really cool denim projects. I made some photos. It’s a Hungarian magazine, so you probably won’t understand any word of them, comment pls, if you need me to explain any of them.

At the last picture there is a small bag, which is not a DIY thing (you could buy it somewhere, unfortunately there are no shop with that name), but I might will try to make one.
