Box of dragons

A light box, that is. Still playing around with the light box and camera settings. Despite the size of the thing (I got the 24×24) a horizontal picture of this many dragons captures the sides of the box. And that’s even when shooting 4×3. While technically probably for now my Etsy shop is exempt from […]

Stay the h*ck home

For the last few days I’ve contemplated how to address the current world situation. Some of the blogs I follow have just carried on without mentioning it. Embroidery folks are all-in on hand sanitizer holders. One sewing site did a roundup of DIY mask tutorials even while saying they don’t really work, which is awful […]

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 […]

Dragon taggin’ day

I’m now up to, I think, three wrong-color shipments. After the next-to-last one, I made myself a reference sheet. And then I shipped a teal dragon instead of a peacock because my brain just went “yep everyone is ordering the latest color” and didn’t even look at the reference sheet. So the time has come […]

Last-minute Valentine dragon

I’ve been a little quiet lately because I was bound and determined to actually finish one of the art dragons. And I did it, albeit a little later than good marketing would prescribe – Valentine items should be listed in mid-January. I picked up a couple colors of Ben Textiles Royal Velvet that looked like […]

My New Years’ resolution…

… is not to start large December post series until I already have all the posts in the queue. Whew. Things heated up in the shop in December, a lot. I had some great plans to not knock myself out restocking, but Etsy now allows non-premium accounts to set “allow restock requests” and, well, if […]

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 […]

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, […]
