If I had a hammerrrrr.....

I'd hammer in fenceboards...

Which is what I was doing this afternoon after the dog got out....again. Silly thing. She's a big, fluffy, goofy australian shepherd and border collie mix that completely ignores me when I call her UNLESS I'm in the van with the door open.

So she got a ride to Lowe's today, and waited for me while I bought nails and lumber. Don't worry, it's a nice cool day here and I wasn't in very long. ;)

In artsy shoppy news - I have noticed something that made me realize how much even the little bit of promoting I do helps bring people to my shop:

I checked out my stats on Craftopolis and saw that, compared to the months that I wasn't promoting at all, my shop views/visits now that I'm promoting my art are triple what they were. For instance, last October my views were around 250. This month, at not even halfway through, my views number around 1000!

I'm really optimistic that eventually those views and visits are going to turn into more sales! :)


  1. heh your dog sounds really cute!

    That's great that you've noticed your views have gone so far up! Awesome. :)

  2. Wow, that's so exciting! I am obsessed with Analytics. I love seeing my pageviews go up!

  3. Silly dog. :)

    I need to start doing something about promoting if I ever want to really start selling. Glad to hear it's working so well for you!!
