A helpful hint for Etsy shop owners.

I love my shop at Etsy called LRStudio which is short for Laurie Rohner Studio. I find the community there is always trying to help each other sell more and be successful. They are a bunch of young people who run things in Brooklyn NY and I thank the Uni-verse for putting together Etsy. 
The other day I received my email from Etsy and among some of the great topics one caught my attention. It pertained to improving your shop and it had a Livestream so I watched. I found a bunch of things to do for my shop which I will share later. This one was at the top of my list. It is so simple but not many shops owners from what I can see have done it. Be sure you add a link on each listing back to the shop section of the listing and a link back to your shop. Just type or copy http://all the info in the browser address and then paste it at the bottom of your listings description editing section and then your shop address Publish your page and you are finished.

In the studio new designs for painted furniture.

I am in the midst of adding a new design to my painted furniture. I am calling it the Wallpaper Effect for now. I am fascinated with big chintz fabric designs with tulips and peonies and also find the new graphics of flower silhouettes of today fresh and inspiring.  But I am not finished. I added some faux finishes to meld it all together. I mixed it all up and created an eclectic cottage look for today's home. I am hoping to have some of the first pieces photographed by next week. 
Think of English Countryside meets Le Cirque....are you intrigued yet?

I have uncovered a vintage (now) print I had made of a pen and ink drawing titled Majestic Lion. The original was finished in the mid 80's and the print was made about the same time. They are in great condition and I am now offering to my clients and a wonderful price $7 and free shipping here in the USA. You can ask for international shipping charges. I loved to draw back then and still do but there is only so much time.  If you are interested you can buy CLICK HERE at my Etsy Shop LRStudio.
