Well, I’m happy to say that life certainly hasn’t given me lemons. (My backyard did though – I have a lemon
tree bush that is like something from that episode of Gilligan’s Island – it just produces tons of lemons year round. It’s wonderful! But I digress)
No, no lemons from life. However, I do feel like I’ve fallen in an Etsy hole. It seems to happen every few months. Things are cruising along fine – sales are great, views are good, lots of activity and then WHAM! Darkness falls and suddenly it all gets very, very quiet.
I’m getting used to the cycle however and trying to use the time wisely. So, in this lull I’m trying to come up with new products and new ideas.
And here is where it all ties back into lemons (see what I did there?).
I love the graphics on these old, French lemon syrup labels (if you click on the pic it will take you to the Etsy listing). In a rare moment of…something… I actually kind of like these pictures I took too.
However, I do not like that every time I need to take a picture it somehow requires me to tear apart my entire house. I mean, seriously, we’re talking about a 3.5×3.5 inch coaster and I managed to trash the bedroom, the living room and the kitchen trying to snap a pic as I ran from room to room muttering “I’m loosing the light!!!!! I’m loosing the light!!!!!”
