What’s up with that ?

Tangled metal wire. Yeah, that was fun…

You know how these workshops, studies, hobby rooms tend to be … crowded. Mostly, even if it looks messy, the owner will know where everything is – cause everything has it’s own place.

It can be tidy, it can be messy – but everything has it’s own place. Right?  Yes.

I have one of those. Small, but very organized studio. Eveything in boxes and shelves. For some reason I  very often find myself searching for that tool I just placed right.. there , in the open  – and when I need it, it is not there. At all. Searching around for it nearby will usually be futile as well. Sometimes I move on, without the tool. Other times I just spend hours searching for it. When it does show up, as it always do after some time, it is in a place I would never have thought of putting it. What is up with that ? What is happening? Am I getting blackouts now?  Is this an age thing? Does this happen to you ?  Ooof.

Some days are worse than others I have noticed.

There is not much to be done about it I suppose, other than to be patient while you search. Listen to some music perhaps. Going through some ideas in your head for new things to make , when you find this .. tool.

Or take a breather and  write a blog post about it.

Ok, back into the fray!

I am so excited! For awhile now I have been working on getting an online commerce solution up and running on this site .  The major hurdle was choosing which one of the many different payment solutions I wanted to add. There are many options, but most of them are rather costly with monthly fees. I ended up going for two  that only charge a fee whenever I sell something.  Paypal and Stripe.  Installing the plug in WooCommerce went without a glitch, but I had to have some help getting the SSL-certificate installed.  Now all I have to do is actually adding products. Whew!

So why going through all this trouble? I like working out from my own site, as I see the commercial ones changing the algorithm often. It can sometimes be time consuming to keep up.  I want to test this out for a bit, and see where it leads. Besides, it is fun doing new things. I will continue to add to my Etsy shop , as well as doing a few shows every year.
