Titles and Tags

This weeks work for my shop is accessing and revamping my titles and tags. I am reworking all my titles to be more descriptive and search friendly.  For example,  I have clip trio's like this one...
The old title is Medium Clip Trio, (very vague and unspecific)

My new title is Crochet Hair Clips, Medium Hair Clip Trio, Violet, Rust Brown, Robin Egg Blue.  
(This one is much more descriptive with a few more search words.)
I am usint this helpful Etsy  article , for improving my item titles, tags, and item descriptions.  

 Enjoy!

Shop Story

In an effort to recreate my shop story, I have read Etsy articles to help me tell my story.  And here it goes....

My hooks I use to make my crochet items...


I cleaned and organized my mobile office. I need it to be ready to go and be on the move...


I create a custom fit for 3 different size snap clips, as well as, other style clips...
For my ponytails, I use only the most durable and stretchiest elastic.  I test the durability and stretch of each elastic.  It is possible for my ponytails to break, but all is not lost, a simple bobby pin can give the flower new life.  

Continuing with the rainbow look ... I have all my threads sorted by color family....

It is handy to have one of these if yarn, fine yarns are a part of your trade...
I bought this yarn yesterday at half price, to use for a design submission.

Then last but not least, a picture of just a sampling of my yarn and thread...

My life in a daily rainbow of colors.  Enjoy!

New Banner

I started my Etsy store, gwengoods six years ago, with this banner...


Now I am reevaluating my shop with the help of Team Serenity. I am critiquing my shop and making some changes.  In trying to create a cohesive shop, I needed to update my banner and my avatar.  So I downloaded a free trial of Photoshop.  I knew I needed to add things that I sell into my banner.  I took new pictures of my  popular items.  I am by no means tech savvy, but I figured it out and this is my new banner....
