What Am I Up To?

I have been very busy lately creating a new website.  It is craft related and I will be launching it very soon.

The website will be called www.CraftLlama.com – before you rush off to have a look, it currently has a “maintenance mode” sign up so I can construct away without confusing anyone.

This blog (yes, the one you are reading right now) is built using the WordPress platform.  I have to confess that sometimes WordPress and I have little arguments.  And sometimes WordPress appears to win them.  But overall I love it because it is so flexible, powerful and convenient – which is why the Tin Teddy Blog uses it!

My new site is also using WordPress but is far more complex than a blog.  I have had to learn a lot of new skills to complete it, including a crash course in both HTML and CSS code.

So what is this mysterious new Craft Llama site, I hear you say?

Well, the more observant amongst you will have noticed that the banner above includes the words “The crafting community”, so that should give you quite a large clue.

I am hoping it will be something very big and very special – made by a crafter, for crafters.

Stay tuned – Tin Teddy Blog followers will be getting special invitations to see it before everyone else – with various perks to this included.

Currency Change in Tin Teddy Graphics Shop @ Etsy

This morning 52% of the UK voted to leave the European Union.  This has caused the pound sterling to fall rapidly.

I previously had my Tin Teddy Etsy shop set to US dollars.  I have now changed it to Pounds Sterling.

This will benefit both myself and my customers.  British buyers will see no difference.  Buyers from outside the UK will be able to benefit from the weak pound and get more for their money than they previously did.

All Etsy shoppers see items for sale in their own currency.

A New Look for Tin Teddy on Etsy

This week Etsy rolled out a  significant new look for seller’s shops.

Now my Tin Teddy shop on Etsy looks like this…

TTNewShop

 

Previously it looked like this.

TTOldShop

The biggest differences are that the product pictures are bigger (a good thing!) but reviews and polices are now on the front page (which seems unnecessary to me and distracts from the products).

Sellers have a choice of using the new, huge!, “cover pictures”, as I have done, using their old banners (which do no show at all on mobile devices) or having no cover or banner.

I am trying the cover picture for now on this shop.  My Antique Dog Prints vintage shop on Etsy still has the old small banner up.  I will wait a while to see how people respond to the changes before settling on one or the other for good.
