Changes continue

Still working on merging the sites – you may have noticed some shopping-cart bits showing up on this site. I’m decommissioning shop-dot silverseams.com and files-dot silverseams.com, so some links are currently broken (I think the last count was 24). The drama about Etsy’s advertising changes has made me wonder a bit about whether I should […]

Server moved!

Got some cleanup to do (especially over on shop.silverseams.com where I broke a couple things) but I’m off WordPress hosting and everything is on the same (virtual) machine. Once I have all the computer bits working, I’ll be putting a couple new colors in the shop… including actual mallard (with sparkles). Part of getting the […]

Like/Follow Silver Seams on Facebook

I’ve somewhat reluctantly joined Facebook, since FB restricts what non-users can see and I’ve seen some referrals from there. If you’re also there, please like-and-follow me there at least temporarily so I can get rid of that crazy numeric URL. FB temptingly puts the “Create Page @username” link, but informs me I’m not eligible to […]

My New Years’ resolution…

Four art dragons in the shop

I decided to go ahead and list all four of the finished art-doll dragons, and put them on sale for “Smaugust.” (Hey, don’t look at me, I don’t invent these things.) It’s almost two months since any have sold, and I’m afraid the fancier ones are just too pricey. This is a shame because they’re […]

I have a display tablet!

Even the vertical mouse hasn’t really helped my wrist lately (probably because I tend to clutch it tighter than the horizontal one, negating any benefit of the wrist angle). I noticed the XP-Pen Artist 12 📦 had come down to ~$200, less a 5% coupon, so I sprang for it. It’s going to take some […]

Woo! Commerce.

I took a break from sewing and set up a new server at https://shop.silverseams.com/. It’s mostly so I can post my fabric stash without cluttering the Etsy shop, but until I get the fabrics out and take some measurements and pictures, it’s just occupied with a couple of things that have expired unsold from Etsy, […]
