Check out my ETSY

Alright, this is a first etsy listings for me. I have worked for hours and hours trying to list things on etsy. I took nice photo's and was in the middle of listing and my photo's were tooo large and wouldn't go through.(And I didn't know how to make them smaller). HELP< despiration>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
I could have cried. So I listed the best way that I could. Please check out my etsy and here are some of the photo's that I was going to list on etsy. They really are nice photo's compared to what I could list. P.S. An uupdate, I received some emails to help me, I have it figured out a little better. Thanks to all my prim friends.

  3. Etsy was having problems yesterday with that error coming up. If your pictures are too large, how I would resize them, if you have a microsoft based OS, you can use PAINT, it's under accessories and resize the photos that way. Make sure to rename the new photo(resized) one that you created something different ie. red checked curtains2. That way you still have your original.
    I have to resize some of the pictures that I have that were taken with my old camera occasionally and that's how I do it.

    You've got a great start to etsy. It can be a fun and maddening place to sell....fun when you do and maddening when you don't. Key to success on etsy is to list often. Good luck.

  4. Good luck selling on etsy! Your items are lovely. There is a site that Optimizes your photos(makes them smaller). It gives you three or four different sizes and you just save the smallest one to your picture file. Hope this helps you.Here is the link to it:

About Me

My photo
I have been married to my sweetheart Ronnie for 30 years.We live in the beautiful shenandoah valley of Va. We have 2 beautiful children and 3 beautiful grandchildren. I am a christian, and am blessed with two wonderful jobs. I am a hairdresser and also a nurse, I am proud of my nursing degree which I got at age 47. I give the Lord much praise for this. I also enjoy primitive crafts, antiquing, cooking, reading and gardening. My husband and I bought an old farmhouse in WV five years ago and it was ancient, floor rotted out in the kitchen, no bathroom, bats flying around, mice. Scary, well now five years later we have most of it completed, working now on a roof for the wrap around porch.We sand blasted some of the walls so they would be original, we also took all the old weatherboarding off of the outside of the house, planed it and put it back on some of the inside walls. We also have added a wrap around porch. Since we have remodled the old farmhouse, that is how I came up with my blog name.
