HAPPY CYBER MONDAY!

Posted By: Leah
Hi! Happy Cyber Monday! I hope everyone has had a nice Tgiving break and is back in the routine of work/school. It's nice to have time off, but also nice to get back to work! Exciting news... I made it into an Etsy Treasury! most of you know what it is... it is a selection of favorite products put into a gallery on Etsy. There are hundreds of thousands of sellers on etsy and only hundreds of treasury galleries (between 400-600) so even though it sounds like a lot, it is an honor to be chosen for one. And.... an even bigger honor is to be chosen by someone you know through Etsy... TheMasonry chose me for hers! You know her, (see blog entry below) she is the one who hooked my shop up with its awesome holiday banner and avatar! To see the treasury I'm in... click HERE. See the pale pink and silver headband? That is mine!!! Oh! and one more thing about treasuries... frequently the folks at Etsy will choose the BEST treasuries to make it to the Etsy.com front page. That guarantees you 'hearts' (people marking you/your item as a favorite) and very likely sales too! Awesome free marketing to the millions who go to Etsy every day :) This is my 2nd Treasury ever. I totally forgot to do a print screen of the first one. It was 'lavender and chocolate' and had my clips. Oh well, maybe I'll make it in again!




Be sure to check out my shop for special EtsyHolidaySale Cyber Monday specials, be sure to follow my blog if you aren't already to get in on the giveaway and last, but not least... contact my pal TheMasonry on etsy or themasonry(at)gmail.com for a FREE awesome banner!!! Yes!

GIVEAWAY Info!

Posted By: Leah
Hi!
So earlier, I talked about my awesome giveaway I will do once I have 25 followers. I had 4 followers when I posted that, now I have 13... but I need more!!! You KNOW you want a ShopLeah item for free, right?? first, here are the rules and how to enter up to 3 times. Next, will be some ideas on what to give away!


Here are my three ways to enter, pick one or all three and you can be entered three times!


1- Simply follow my blog (how easy is that?) AND comment on your favorite thing from my ShopLeah store in the comments section of this blog.


2- Follow my blog (I'm trying to get followers, lol!) and then in YOUR blog, post somethign about me! :) then in the comments section anywhere on my blog, send the link. In your blog feel free to write anything you would like... from your favorite product, to how awesome I am... it's up to you!


3- Follow my blog (obviously) and then become a fan of 'ShopLeah' on Facebook! Next, post on your YOUR or MY FB wall, your favorite thing from my ShopLeah store. Just send me a link in the comments section of this blog.


That is it! Super easy. Ok so now for the fun stuff... what I'll be giving away! It will be YOUR CHOICE of one. Either these super cute bobby pins...




..or...
These blue and gold bobby pins


I know you would love them! And if I get 25 followers by the holiday and I 'officially' launch the giveaway... (what I'll do is have an end date for everyone to follow and send me their comments by) you could have these as a holiday gift for yourself or someone else. Either would make a great stocking stuffer for a girl of any age!

My camera broke :(

Posted By: Leah
I would say that selling on Etsy there is one thing that is the absolute most important, crucial part... good pictures! The product can be amazing or terrible and the only way anyone will be even remotely interested in clicking on it is the quality of the photo. My current camera is a Cannon and it took some pretty good pictures. I got some nice detail and focus. Well, the sad news is that it broke. I am not sure what you would call what happened to it except that the zoom is locked, it will not focus, and the automatic lens cover is stuck in the 'open' position for all eternity. I have had great success with headbands and just replenished my stock, so I wasn't going to let a broken camera stop me from listing my headbands. The pictures got a D+ in my book, but I felt certain they would be 'good enough'... well not so much. I went from 1-2 sales a day last week with my previously photographed headbands... to zero sales with the newly photographed headbands on my broken camera (below are the absolute best pics I took of my gold on gold headband and purple on black headbands):


I know... D+ on the quality, right? So the good news is I work with a great photographer Courtney! Here's a link to her blog crd photography
Courtney loves taking photos so much, she will take them for anyone :) So I got her to bring in her camera one day
last week and we had a lunchtime photo shoot! Here are the 'afters' of the Gold and the Purple headbands from above:







So needless to say, a new camera is on my Christmas wish list!

Addicted to Etsy Chat!!!! - Gav's Favorites!

Posted By: Leah
I stumbled upon Etsy Chat one day when I had a quick question and didn't want to wait around for an answer in the Etsy Forums. Etsy Chat is soo fab! Not only is it very fast-paced, but as you chat with other Etsians, the people in the chat can look through your Etsy shop. If they like your itmes, they post pictures of what they like so that is constantly scrolling with interesting pictures on the right. I have found sooo many awesome things that I would not have normally discovered because they may not have made it to Etsy FrontPage (even though I am pretty sure everything below, or at least the seller has!). Even Gav gets in on the fun! He loves to watch the pictures and a lot of times there are things he is interested in. I am sooo tempted to post what I have purchased for Holiday Gifts... and most of them I found just by hanging out on the Chat every now and then... but I can't because I don't want to ruin the surprise! Here are some of Gav's favorites from the past week or so.... that he saw on Etsy Chat and wanted immediately (who can blame him?)

Gav Calls this one "Green Bat" (I know it's a monster. He reallly wants it)



Gav calls this one a "Moose" but really, it's a reindeer bunny. He loves amigurumi


ajsweetsoapThis is SOAP! I KNOW!! It looks so real! Yum!


HELICOPTERstudios It's a portable campfire that folds into a tote! So beyond awesome!

I just saw on my ShopLeah FB page that I can get a Fan Badge to post and make it easier for everybody to be a fan! So... hopefully this will work:

Earth Fare Free Pantry Makeover!

Posted By: Leah


I am so excited about my Earth Fare Pantry Makeover I just have to share it with everyone. I went last night to trade in my unhealthy items and it's for real! Earth Fare really does let you trade items containing high fructose corn syrup and hydrogenated oils and lets you have free Earth Fare products. All you need to do is ring in 1 of each item (soda, peanut butter, jelly, salad dressing and cereal) and replace it with a new Earth Fare brand product. Here’s the nice thing… the product you bring in doesn’t have to be new, it can be completely empty and they’ll still give you a new one. Just make sure you have this coupon with you. Just check the ingredients before you leave home to make sure they do include the 'unhealthy' sugars and oils. I was actually surprised that my salad dressings and jellys were all 'good' and made with either real sugar or splenda. It was fun shopping in Earth Fare because I know that my new products are healthy for me and the fam. This promotion will go until February 2010 so you have plenty of time to trade your products in. At the store I shop at in Greensboro, there was a huge display of all the 'bad' foods that had been turned in. It was great! Also, the widest selection of the cereals, juices, dressings etc. is right there at the front next to this display, so if all you are doing is trading in your food it saves you from running all over the store. You can print the coupon (no barcode on it) from this page or HERE.

Long time no update - ShopLeahGiveaway! YES!

Posted By: Leah
I read blogs every day and look forward to them... actually I get a little sad if there is not at least one update everytime I check my dashboard on blogspot. The funny thing is I am the worst! I have not blogged since August! I love the blogs from my Etsy friends with giveaways so I wanted to have one soon too! Here is the plan... starting today, my goal is to have 25 people following me. Once that happens I will have a giveaway of a fabulous ShopLeah item! Sounds fair, right? Just to tell you how to enter this thing welllll in advance (heck, go ahead and enter now, why not?) There will be 3 ways to win! I will not have the drawing until I have 25 followers and then give you a good week or so to comment/post etc. to get entered, so forward this blog to your friends and hopefully I will be able to have this drawing prior to the holidays. If you win you can give the item as a gift or keep it for yourself! And no, I'm not sure what the ShopLeah gift will be... so tell me what you like most on my site and hopefully you will win and get it for free!

Here are my three ways to enter, pick one or all three and you can be entered three times!:
1- Simply follow my blog (how easy is that?) AND comment on your favorite thing from my ShopLeah store in the comments section of this blog.
2- Follow my blog (I'm trying to get followers, lol!) and then in YOUR blog, post somethign about me! :) then in the comments section anywhere on my blog, send the link. In your blog feel free to write anything you would like... from your favorite product, to how awesome I am... it's up to you!
3- Follow my blog (obviously) and then become a fan of 'ShopLeah' on Facebook! Next, post on your YOUR or MY FB wall, your favorite thing from my ShopLeah store. Just send me a link in the comments section of this blog.

Ok, so enough of the rules for my exciting givewawy (don't worry, I'll keep posting this as I get closer to 25 followers, so you won't forget the rules). I had an AWESOME FRIDAY last week at the Craft fair at my work. I sold out of everything on ShopLeah! Seriously! I only had like 8 things left. I had custom orders this weekend, and made two extra headbands while I was working. Well three have already sold! in 2 days! I cannot believe how ShopLeah is taking off. And just in time for the holidays! The only downside is because I am out of EVERYTHING (from fabric to business cards) that I have had to re-order EVERYTHING. Most are not too expensive, but things like headbands do add up fast! In person the toddler hairclips and pins seem to be the best sellers. online it is all about the headbands! I need to stop buy Ulta and get more ASAP.

That is all for today's update.... and don't forget to follow this blog and have all of your friends follow it! Thanks everybody! :)
