Cutely holding an umbrella

1. calivintage: a rainy walk, 2. Oct 16, 3. June 15th., 4. Untitled, 5. Summertime..., 6. Greeny, 7. June 12, 8. Family stuff, 9. New fashions (1937)

Lots of cute, pretty fashion inspiration mixed with umbrella holding! Man, we still really want rain here! It has hardly rained for a few weeks, and I miss it! I guess there is a reason we are called the Sunshine state! But I know soon when the real summer comes, we will get those often thunderstorms again...or at least I hope! It's gotten so hot here too.

Well, rain, I am anticipating your arrival! I have a big ikea umbrella even.

On another subject... I just need to ponder in writing a little bit. My sales on Etsy have been really bad the past two weeks. I haven't sold anything in those two weeks. I have relisted things to put them back near the front of searches, added some new things, have seen new views and sometimes new hearts, but no selling. I am really hoping this changes soon! Sometimes I don't know if I need to change my prices. Higher? Lower? Or really it's just not a good time in general? Just thinking about it.

Well, I actually made another polyvore set myself again! And with the rain theme. So instead of posting other people's creations, here is mine.

Aww how cute, you're so creative!
I haven't sold anything recently either, apart from the custom orders I finally caught up on. Lately I've been testing a theory: If I don't blather about myself all over the interwebs, I get NO views whatsoever. I've been thinking I might get more sales by filling up my shop instead of marketing myself all day long. Everything I listed last week has gotten less than 5 hits because I've done zero promoting. *sigh* What to do?

Anyway, I'm off to check out your polyvore so I can get the details on those adorable earrings!

I wasn't aware of polyvore, one could spend hours playing around! Your collage is SUPERB! As for Etsy, It's been really bad since they changed the site in my opinion. Views are down big time and sales. I recently had my worst week ever in 2 years. Hang in there, hopefully things get back to normal for everyone soon.

Love the inspiration here! And I'm sorry about Etsy...I wasn't kidding when I said I was going to buy something! Just waiting for a bit. Your items are one of a kind and amazing and I'm sure it's just a "lull" right now. I remeber from my ebay days...this time of year is weird for shopping. People are getting done with school and planning their summers and aren't really at the computer as much in that shopping mode. It will pick up!
