Thinking of opening a second shop in Etsy

I am considering opening a second shop on Etsy. My current one focuses mostly on weird creatures and fun crazy stuff but I have recently been making things out of yarn, scarves and booties and I really enjoy making things like that. My thinking is that a shop for cold weather items, which is much different from my current shop and since they are so different I thought a rather than just making one shop full of all my stuff, it might be better to separate them. 

Can anyone give any tips or what their experiences are, pro’s, con’s? What do you guys think?

50% off my Etsy site for all my Blog Friends

I am doing some spring cleaning and need to make room for new and exciting creations. For all my blog friends, I am offering 50% off starting today until June 4th! Please take a look at my Zombie Swan as I have a great offer on the table from a set of 7 year old twin boys who offered me their entire piggy bank for it…$1.03! (Sadly, I am unable to buy a yard of fabric with that much). 

I really want to make a sale or two and use that money to buy fabric to make colorful children’s pillowcases to donate to a wonderful charity called Connkerr Cancer. I am so blessed to have 3 healthy children and really want to help bring smiles to those who are not so lucky health-wise. 

Please visit my website at https://www.etsy.com/shop/BadStitches

All sales this week go directly to the buying of children’s fabrics to make pillowcases for sick children. Please visit the charity I am hoping to donate 100 pillowcases by the end of summer to. http://www.conkerrcancer.org/

Putting the doll up for sale on Etsy.

Sometimes it’s hard to look at you’re work and think…is this good enough? Would anybody actually want this? It’s easy to say, no one will like this, it’s not good enough and through it out or put it somewhere out of site and mind. 

This morning I was looking at my finished doll, not sure it was finished. My bats and owls that I make, their personalities usually jump out at me, but this doll did not. I couldn’t “hear” her voice. This morning, I realized why, it was because she was very shy. Her brown hair and her clothes, though the skirt is a bit short, reminded me of Laura, you know the Laura I am talking about, the one nick names half-pint. I named her Ms. Wilder because she is not a child but not quiet an adult yet. Her head is in her books. She prefers to find a nice quiet tree to sit down next to and read. Is she good enough to put on Etsy? Especially since she is my first doll? I don’t know, but it certainly will not hurt to find out. Image
