An Etsy Shop

The sun is out today.  There are plenty of bugs and bees but I haven't seen a butterfly yet.  I have got butterflies in my stomach though as my etsy shop is up and running!  If you want to take a peek just click on the pootlingwithpaper link under etsy on my side bar.  It would be lovely to have some visitors to the shop.  This is totally out of my comfort zone and a huge learning curve.  I still have some tweaking to do and find out how to improve the quality of my photos.  I will be adding more things to the shop over the coming days.  In my sheer determination to focus on the shop I have managed to lose 5lb in 5 days!  I don't know if it is due to the diet or the added stress I am giving myself!  Anyway I am feeling fitter and more focused than I have in ages so it must be a good thing eh?  I hope the weather is good where you are.  I may even get to cut the grass if it stays dry!

Good luck. The weight loss must have been a suprise ! I lost a stone and a half but it's creeping back all the time & I now feel sluggish so it's time to focus again !
Hope you get the grass cut !
