What is Tsu?

I have decided to join a new social media platform called Tsu which is apparently pronounced as Sue.
I had seen a couple of things about it on FB.
Then I saw it mentioned in the Professional Crafters group, so I took the plunge.
Now as any small business owner with an FB page knows there are even more changes going on there once again, starting in January, to reduce our reach unless we pay.
So now many FB business small and micro business users are looking for other social media platforms that will be of help to them and their business.

I have only just joined Tsu and not ventured far into it, so I am a total newbie on this site.
I did however find a blog post about it from Artwork By Angie`s blog I found this blog post helpful and thought it might help others too.

I had a further little exploration and found a much more extensive post/guide that had been shared and clearly new a lot about it by Scott Buehler. I haven`t read the whole post entirely yet, I`m taking in the information in small manageable amounts that are easier to digest, but what I have read I find very interesting.

Over the holidays I shall be looking into it much more to see how useful it will be for me as a small business. What I see so far leads me to think it will be good, I really hope that it will be and that it lives up to the good things I have read so far.

If you click those links and have a read and think to yourself it sounds interesting and you`d like to give it a go, then come say hello to me at Uniquely Your Designs and join.

I usually write a little ditty
but can`t think of anything witty.
Tweaking the brain cells but try as I might
I can`t think of a rhyme about this site.
Instead I`ll say that with holidays near
it`s time to get yourself into gear.
To think of family time and fun
until the celebrations are done.
Then you can look further afield
to see what other sites will yield.

Thank you for visiting, please do come back to visit soon.

New word art shapes #NOTHS

Well folks, despite my best intentions, I haven`t had a spare minute to blog.
My word art shapes just took off on `Not On The High Street` and the orders just grew in volume. By November I was very busy and into December it was manic. I was at the computer from early, 5-5.30 a.m ish to quite late often not finishing until 10.30 - 11.00.
I even did housework to take a computer break, sooooo not like me.
Now finally, I have stopped taking orders until next year and will be using the time to create new word art shapes. For any creative person, the new ideas being turned into reality, is the best part. I love thinking up new ideas and working out ways to put them into practice.
My crochet has rather taken a back seat this winter. I still do it as I find it very relaxing and love making things but now have a pile that need to be photographed and added to my shop. Ooops.
I was offering downloadable files on Etsy but it seems that there are new laws coming in to do with VAT that make the selling of digital files very complicated and almost impossible for a small business. So when my Etsy art shop opens it will only sell prints.
I will add some of my newer makes for you to see.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.

It`s been so manic
no time for panic,
in short supply of sleep
the eyes could barely keep
focussed, awake and aware
to see if the screen was there.
Up long before the dawn
missing the coming of the morn.
Crawling late into bed
I think enuff`s been said.
It was crazy but fun
now I`m happy to be done.
Time to get Christmas ready
taking it nice and steady.
Last minute gifts, don`t look here
at last my order book is clear!!






Hope you enjoyed seeing some of my new makes, they are very popular as personalised gifts.
Thanks for visiting, please come back soon.
