Call me Crazy...But...

I went and opened a second Etsy store. I've been debating with myself about it for a long time and I decided the time was now. I want to start adding more supplies to my Shabby Cottage Studio Etsy shop and I always feel like any artwork I add there gets lost in the mess of supplies. And since Etsy won't let us organize our shops I decided to just open one for artwork alone and keep the supplies separate.

Then there was the agonizing over a name. Do you do that? I actually had quite a few I liked so it was hard to narrow it down. In the end I decided to stay true to my cottage roots and my love of paper and I named the new shop The Papier Cottage. So please, stop by and check it out. I've got some inventory in there now but I'm inspired and motivated to create more so I will be adding to the inventory over the next few weeks.

Ciao Bellas

I don't think you're crazy - it's a very practical decision. Love the new store, as well as the old one!

Hi Gail,
Very exciting....Can't wait to visit The Papier Cottage. I love the name! I am still trying to get Blackberry Winter and The Mint Julep Cottage up and running. I have some semi "down" time over the next few, my plan is to just do it!!!
Now I'm off to your new shop!
