Upcoming Workshops

Hey all this is Cindy with Living Water Pottery. We are having a couple of workshops in July.

The first is on Tuesday the 27th from 6-7:30 PM on basic jewelry making for teens to adults. The fee is $30 per person.
We will make ceramic pieces for a future project and complete a braclet and earrings.

The second is Wednesday the 28th from 10-11:30 AM also on basic jewelry making for children and adults.
The fee is $30 per adult and $5 for each additional child ( 4 yrs and up) or $25 each for children unaccompanied by an adult.
We will make ceramic pieces for a future project and complete a braclet and earrings for the adults. The children (boys and girls) will make a pendant.

Materials needed to complete project during class will be provided for both workshops.

If interested please RSVP by July 20th.

We are going to do another meetup in July. It will need to be done in the evening. Anyone have preference as to what day of the week? Also please make suggestions as to workshop topics.

Better luck with other websites?

Hi everybody. I'm Tracy Ray. I left a comment on a post, but this is the first post I've left. My Etsy website is I also teach preschool at Sonshine School at the A&M Church of Christ, but I would love to be able to make some money with my sewing and crafts. I invite anyone to check out my site and offer pointers!

A couple of you have said that you have your own websites because you haven't been doing well on Etsy. Are you doing better on your other websites? If so, is it expensive? How do you get your own website? Please help me!

Great Idea!!

My name is Lindsay & I didn't get to make it to the Etsy Meet Up event. Thanks for creating this blog for us to network! Hopefully one day I can meet you all in person!

My business is Campbell Ryan Designs. I specialize in custom photo card announcements, invitations, stationery, etc. I've got a website up with some of my designs in addition to Etsy (since I've had no success with Etsy! ;( ) and am always creating new things (when my three kids under the age of 4 allow me to!!). Hope everyone has a great 4th of July!


This is Great!
