So after purchasing the domain for my scrappie critters page & letting it sit for an extended period of time, I finally set up the site. https://scrappiecritters.com/ is LIVE. It’s still a work in progress, but it’s up.
I will likely only sell from this page, once I fork over more cash to get that happening again. In the interim people can still contact me about items. To be honest, last time I had the bones of online purchasing sorted, but the reality that I needed to put up so many individual items, meant other things took precedence for my time, likely history will repeat.
Well, back to it….
It seems I am forever posting updates to say “I’m back” after a long hiatus, but hopefully I actually can follow through & be back now that I have a solution in place to access a computer after mine died. I have been reliant on my phone only to access the internet, so this site was cast aside for a time. I also managed to find the little piece of paper that I scribbled my username & password for this page onto as well. I like to write important information on random bits of paper in way that not only would it be confusing for others, but that I can’t even make sense of it.
This past year plus has definitely been busy, even if I haven’t been very present here. I am embracing both my artistic side & the philanthropist within. I have also embraced the idea that saying no to projects that don’t spark joy in me, is ok. Just because I can make something, doesn’t mean I should sell my soul to do so. Making others happy at my own expense isn’t a good thing.
I have yet to workout what I will do with the look of this site, several have asked for me to create an online store, or at least a place where they can view the items that I make, so I may go back to doing something like that. However, if I do, do an online store, I want something with as little overhead as possible, because that just adds stress & I feel my creativity suffers. I also have no interest in churning out hundreds of items for the sake of it, in the hope that someone might buy it & it slowly sucking away my will to live because now I am stuck with all this STUFF. It’s all a balancing act really.
With my site design focusing around the idea of a blog, I like the idea of using some of this space to write about what interests me creatively too, something is separate from my personal page. I’m interested in a wide array of subjects & they all feed into my creative process.
Oh well, back to re-acquainting myself with the layout of the site & getting back into the swing of it. 🙂
