My First Notecards Sale!

My Etsy shop is quite the eclectic mix of things for sale, from jewelry to household items to photographic prints to notecards. I havent had any success in selling my photo notecards, that is until yesterday! One lucky buyer swooped up 3 of my notecards yesterday! I was so happy!

These photographs all have some great stories behind them. The first 2 photos are taken in South Korea, where I got a Fulbright Grant to teach English and be a cultural ambassador for a year. The first photo is of a Buddhist temple in Gwangju, South Korea during autumn. I just love the vibrant colors of the building against the brightly colored leaves too. The second is of Naijangsan in South Korea, an area famous for people to flock to during Autumn to check out the Japanese maples. And finally, the last one is Springtime at my Alma Mater, Mount Holyoke College. A restful spot for someone to recline and nap out on the green or bring their books out to study.

OPINIONS: I wonder if its worth it to try to relist these items or not, if you’re reading this, please let me know!

SALE: Also, today is the LAST DAY of my 20% off sale! so please check out the rest of my Etsy for more items! http://majentadesigns.etsy.com

End of Summer – Martha’s Vineyard Sunset

STORY: This photo was taking on a beach in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts. A group of close friends all went out there during the summer after we graduated from high school and before going off to college. Its quite nostalgic thinking back to that trip, as we all watched the sunset and reminiscing over high school memories, wondering what college will be like, etc.

Welcome 2008!

Wow, another year has passed, time sure flies by! 2 years ago I was spending New Years on a beach in Thailand, and the year before that watching fireworks over Sydney Harbour in Australia! This year was spend in Boston at a gathering at one of my high school friend’s apartment.

2007 was a great year, I had a good job, my boyfriend moved to MA, I got to travel to Croatia, Ireland, and England, I got into a PhD program, not to mention started my own business on Etsy! I have always had a passion for crafts and jewelry making, so its so exciting to find a site so successful for helping local artists and promoting handmade items! I’m so excited and so grateful to see my items starting to get some sales!

For 2008, I really am interested in trying to find some craft shows or venues where I can sell my items in person too. I have a few creations I want to make, but I wouldnt know how to sell online, since I wouldnt know how to package and mail them (e.g., vases and baskets).
