I FINALLY got my own website up today! My husband has been needling me for YEARS to get one. I was a total foot dragger as I have almost zero computer skills. I have had my domain name bought and saved since I opened my Etsy shop!
I seriously learned how to "copy and paste" like 3-4 years ago! I set opening a website as a goal for this year and researched several different ones. I decided to go with Shopify.
I wanted a place besides EBay to sell our new items and I also plan to offer some antique/vintage and handmade things there too. (I only have 2 items there now!) Etsy has been crazy lately..we have been selling OK, but you never know what is going to happen next seller-wise there! It is always better to have your eggs in more than one basket..I'm a former farm girl..that is totally true! (also chickens can be mean!)
I felt like Nova Lee Nation from the movie"Where The Heart Is". She went to the "liberry" to look up how to care for a tree she was gifted and told the librarian "I have to look it up in the encyclopedia and then look THAT answer up in the Children's section!" I had to follow the tutorial and sometimes Google what the heck they were talking about! I discovered mostly I was over thinking it. I just went with a lot of the stock input and saved myself stress and tears! So, www.hopeandjoyhome.com is officially open! Lots more items to add there. SO if I can do it..ANYBODY can do it! Yay to met goals! 'Til next time Webmaster Julia (lol)
Hi! I am a former SD girl..now a TN woman. I have a great family..wonderful husband, 2 sons, 2 daughters and a grandson. I have 2 Etsy shops, https://hopeandjoyhome.etsy.com is the shop I sell vintage things in and https://hopeandjoystudios.etsy.com is the shop I sell handmade in. I also help my husband with his Etsy shop https://theindustrialfarmer.etsy.com . I love to create! I like to garden but my attention generally wanes about July and it is every man for himself. I am in the process of turning my daughter's former bedroom into my studio and will be posting pics. I love to laugh..drink coffee and eat chocolate..more to come!
