You know it's going to just be one of those weeks sometimes…
At least the sandbox turtle is prepared...
I was eating lunch on Tuesday when the earthquake happened.
Have to admit - eating a bowl of pumpkin mushroom soup was an ideal place to be.
For me - not scary - thank goodness.
Pretty cool actually…
So now we are under Hurricane Watch/Warning for this weekend…
Last night we took precautions to secure things outside that might take flight when the hurricane force winds hit us.
Inside, the kilns are unplugged and electrical parts up off the floor (just incase a bit of water makes its way in - if it is a lot, then we're in trouble regardless).
I'm getting anything paper related up off the ground if I can.
Books, magazines, etc…
Most of my stuff is stored in plastic bags within plastic bins anyway, so not much preparation is needed in the studio.
Over on Etsy, I've yet to really delve into the "relevancy search-ability" of my shop items.
I need to go by section by section to edit tags and titles…
And the whole thing is just unappealing to me right now.
Too many other things going on in life.
And any free time I have,
I want to be creative and not sucked into the computer.
Know the feeling?
Here is one quick section I managed to update:
|MarshaNealStudio.Etsy Porcelain Halloween pre-update.|
Above is what the old background & photographs looked like.
Of course, I had started the update when I remembered to take a screen shot…
|MarshaNealStudio.Etsy Porcelain Halloween during update.|
Above is what it looked like once I updated the background.
I wanted an old Transylvania eerie map feel to the images.
Like these are old pieces recently unearthed…
You know - Halloween style though.
|MarshaNealStudio.Etsy Porcelain Halloween all cleaned up.|
And above is the final update to the section.
New pieces photographed with the new background.
Tags and Titles updated.
Now will they be relevant enough to start to show up in searches?
What about Treasuries?
What about into shopping carts?
And then - into actual designs…
So how are you preparing for the hurricane?
Did you feel the earth move too?
Do you think the turtle in the first photo is over-reacting with 4 bungee cords?
(I think he takes after my side of the family if you ask me!)
