Sometimes creativity is hard to show!

Over the last few days one of the things I've been working on that has been taxing my creativity is revamping my descriptions based on what I've learned about Etsy and SEO. (Which isn't much.. they really need a SEO for the hopelessly clueless or something)
I took my listings that read "Custom Converse, Wonder Woman" and changed them around to something like this...
Then I had to write descriptions.
Have I mentioned I'm not really a writer? I just kind of type at you the way I'd talk to you if you were hanging out in my living room... while that works ok for my blog, it's not ideal for sales copy.
The listings are better than they were, but they take a lot of time and a lot of thinking so that's where I have been focusing my creativity for the last day.
It doesn't make for the prettiest of pictures (ugh.. pictures, that's my other dilemma. I'm just not that great with a camera so that's up next) to share with you, but it needed to be done and I only have so many hours in each day.
Back to the pictures... I do have a project that I need to do that will work with my shop and give me something fun to share with you. I'm going to make a light box!

What have you been up to this week? I'd love to see!


  1. I've been checking out your shoes in your Etsy store. They're very cool!

    For myself, this isn't strictly speaking something I did today, but I just received my copy of the book 500 Tangles Artworks that contains two of my creations.

  2. There's nothing more creative than sales copy! I feel your pain!

  3. Light boxes work really well with photography. The hubs has a nice camera that he often lets me play with but I still find myself pulling out my iphone... the picture quality is way different there lol
    The post I shared here is a set of cookies the little one and I made the other day. Tie Dye cookies! So fun!
