changes that occurred are that my etsy shop is still up & running, as all the problems with etsy (for now) have been solved for the most part. etsy did let some of their sellers opt out of their new rules & fees under certain circumstances. How long this will last until they decide to try something else remains to be seen, but for now things are running ok. i hope i won't have further problems with doing business on etsy, but as we all know, things can change at the drop of a hat!
i did however, discontinue doing business on bonanza & have closed my storefront there. after trying it out for a couple years with little success, i felt it wasn't worth staying there since i am now on amazon handmade too. bonanza gets very little traffic in comparison, so it became pointless to continue on there.
this year will bring new designs as promised, & my first priority was to do some holiday pieces, which are now available. I've got some fun valentine's day, st. patrick's day & easter designs to choose from. more new designs will be out for spring & summer as well as more holiday ones later in the year. some cool stuff is in the works, so stay tuned! thanks again to everyone & here's to hopefully turning the page on the pandemic! best wishes to all!
