My Etsy Grand Opening!


I can't believe how much great stuff is gonna be in this post. Okay, it's great to me. You may not think it quite so, but I can't help about being excited!

First of all, just like the title says, I'm officially "cutting the ribbon" on my Etsy shop! WOO HOO! You know all those tassels had to find a home somewhere. While I don't have all of them listed, I do have a third of them on there. Check out my oh-so-official Etsy sidebar! I'm telling you, I am so proud of it. Not just for myself, but my precious Sound Man as well. He staged, photographed, and edited all my pictures. By edited I mean added my beautiful logo. I lurve that logo. He is so talented, and my tassels look like they were staged by a professional.

Not only am I opening my shop, but I'm also giving one of these tassels a new home. To whom, you might ask? Well, it might be YOU! My wonderful bloggy friend, Sarah Mae is graciously hosting a giveaway at her Saturday Score post. She is highlighting my tassels! I'm so excited!

Edited to add: I just found out that Cinderella Moments has featured one of my double tassels on her By Hand. By ME spotlight. Thanks so much!

Not only did my husband do my tassel pictures, but he also made me THIS!

My very own blog button! I know, I know...everyone has one now, but I wanted one, too. So, if you'd like one, grab the code from the right sidebar. I hope you do.

And one more thing. Sarah Mae didn't know what she was getting into when she started having to tutor me in blogese. I hope this works...I know I have several followers, but if you'd like to have posts from Butterfly Genes come straight to your reader, subscribe here. If, for some reason, that doesn't work, please let me know.

I had one other exciting thing that I had hoped would be ready, but some miscommunication threw that plan in the ditch. For now, anyway. I'll get it up and running soon.

Let's see...did I miss anything? Etsy, Sarah Mae, Button, Subscription...I think that's all...for now...

I have plans on how I want to start revamping Butterfly Genes. More of a streamlined, organized blog. So, in the coming days, I'll lay out what my plans are...probably as they are evolving.

Thanks for reading. I hope you subscribe!

Now, head over to Like a Warm Cup of Coffee to get your name in the hat for something from my shop!

I finally got my post up about my bird tassel. Is it too late to ship the blue Uncle Sam with it if I buy today?

I'm signing up to follow, as well. Hope you're having a great Sunday!
