How Many Of You Are Still Out There?


Wow, how time flies. It flies whether you are having fun or hard at work! I have been doing both! Life has gotten really busy and I have just not been able to make the time to write a blog in any kind of timely manner. For that I am truly sorry. I have tried and have failed miserably!

I ended up closing my supply and findings shop. Eventually I plan to reopen it with more great items and eBooks. But for now I am just not able to maintain it. Plus, all of my eBooks became outdated seemingly overnight! So, I will attempt to let you all know when I have the shop back up and running. It will probably have a new name and personality. It will be ready, as they say, soon...

In the meantime I could really use your help answering a a few questions. How did you hear about me and my blog and how do you read it? How often do you reference my material? Would you be interested in seeing me blog again on a regular basis? How often would you read it? What would you like to read about.

If you would, please shoot me an email with the answers to these questions to Eric@TangledMetal.com (I check this email way more than I check the one associated with this Blogger account.) Alright, that is all that I have time for at the moment! I look forward to hearing from you all.

It's Been One Long Year For Me On Etsy And Beyond


As Santa is getting his final preparations done for this year's delivery of gifts to the good kids of the world, I wanted to wish each and every one of you a Happy Holiday! May it be a happy and joyous event regardless of what you celebrate.

This year has been filled with many new things for me. I got married a year ago in December. In August, I took a 9 to 5 day job. I put one of my Etsy shops on vacation and have scaled down my main Etsy shops and put my wholesale business on hold.

It has been a roller coaster of many ups and downs. There have been a few not so good things but for the most part everything was really good! I am enjoying my new life. However, I do miss writing blogs for you guys. Unfortunately, that is one of the things that will take some time to get back into the habit of.

I do plan to start blogging again. I want to share my experiences with my Etsy shops and business in general. I am slowly working toward making the time for that. So, keep a watchful eye for new posts from me. There is still a plan to move this blog to one hosted on my own site and I will let you all know when that happens.

In the meantime have a great Holiday season!

Yours,
Eric
