Throwback Thursday: Christmas 2015 In Troy, New York

Generally the Prock family rotates with cousin Debbie (mom’s cousin) for the holidays, but with mom having health issues, we’ve been spending Christmas with cousin Debbie at her house. It’s nice to have to bring a dish and spending time with the family. I love taking photographs of Christmas trees, the holidays, and photos of the family. For Christmas 2016, we’re spending the holidays with cousin Debbie. Debbie loves to be the hostess at all kinds of parties and is creative with her parties.
This Christmas tree is in her dining room in her home, along with a white Christmas tree in her living room. Christmas dinners are also my favorite part of the holidays. With the appetizers, main meal, and dessert. See new Christmas photos from Christmas 2016 in the next week.

Grab a unique holiday gift while you drop off your baby goods.  Give to those less fortunate this holiday season with some diapers, baby food, baby wipes, and much more.

Diapers may be dropped at the checkout counter in the front of the shop.  For our diaper drive 2015, we filled our back room with loads of diapers.  Rosemary and I would love to see that again this year.  Sow’s Ear Studio will be open the week of Rosemary’s surgery (except the day of, December 6th).  Until Rosemary returns to the shop, Lauren will be running the shop until she returns.

Once items are sold, designs aren’t repeated again due to the fact that all items in my shop are unique, handcrafted, and one of a kind. More items are rolling in my Etsy created from Sow’s Ear Studio and at home.

With mom going in Tuesday December 6th, 2016, I will be working on some scarves while waiting for mom to get out of surgery.  See me working on these lovely creations in the waiting room on Tuesday.

As Of October 5, Treasury Lists Will No Longer Be Available

Polymer Clay

Etsy has a lot of great things for people that are in the handmade business full time or part time to supplement income.  When I went on Etsy today and was going to create a new treasury list to my surprise, you will no longer be able to create a treasury list and edit your current treasury lists.

For those of you who don’t know what a treasury list is, a treasury list is where you create a list of various items from other Etsy shops.  These items could be a theme like Fall Is Here and the list could handmade blankets, scarves, fingerless gloves, and anything related to Fall that will keep you warm.

I like these treasury lists because you could type in any handmade item, make a list, and the shops/people that you add to the list noticed your shop.  People can send you comments, view your shop, and share the treasury list that you created.

The question is, why are they discontinuing the treasury lists and what do they have in store.  Whatever they have in store for replacing the treasury lists, I hope that it will be good.  I like Etsy because it’s free and you can keep your handmade items on your shop for four months. I know I’ve been on since April 2015, but making five sales has been good so far.  As they say, getting your own business doesn’t happen overnight.  I looking forward to seeing what Etsy will do in place of treasury lists.
