I was striving to having this book published by Easter in regards to
its subject matter. But I realized that Easter is early this year. In
addition, I am still creating 3 more what I call ‘just one more cross’
for the book. I have decided that once I get these 3 designs done, I’m
going to call it ‘DONE’!!!!
What I did today: I went into my Etsy Store site and added in some information about me and my shop items.
The ShuttleSmith’s Logo Shuttle: “The Shuttle of Many (Primary) Colors”
First of all, I chose one of my glass/enamel tatting shuttles to be
my shop’s ‘logo’ image. I chose the one I named “The Shuttle of Many
Then I added a photo of myself. Another Etsy store owner/tatter
(thanks Marilee Rockley) had critiqued my store and had given me some
pointers. She had told me to add a photo of myself. I have been
avoiding this task for quite some time….I usually dislike photos of me.
I ended up choosing a photo of me torch-firing, working in my enameling
studio. Inserting a photo of myself wasn’t as painful as it could have
been after I realized that the photo ends up quite small on the Etsy
site. Thus you can’t see as many of my wrinkles/imperfections/lack of makeup/etc. as could be possible.
Then I filled in some information in the ‘Shop Info‘ section of my Etsy Shop under the link titled ‘About‘.
If you go to my Etsy Store ‘Shop Info’/’About’ you
will see what I typed in about myself and my journey to get to having
an Etsy store. Also in this page you will see at least one photo of my
What I should have been been doing today instead!!!!!!
I should have been prepping the walls in my kitchen to paint them. Note the tools on the floor.
I have a deadline of March 6th to get this project done because I am
hosting book club. I need a deadline to get things like this done!
must have been in a funky mood when I created this shuttle!!! This
one-of-a-kind enameled (glass on copper) tatting shuttle features a base
of Pine Yellow with Sapphire, & two colors of purple accents.
Actually, I'm not so much the 'funky' kind of person...I just really
like vibrant colors!! Two of my favorites (the yellow and the Sapphire
teal) are in this shuttle. See it (buy it) on my Etsy Store: www.Etsy.com/shop/TheShuttleSmith
