Ha! Back to the gym and coding  

4 comentarios

Yup! I finally joined the gym next door and hopefully will be going every week morning (ehem)

So... just looked in my closet and I don't have any cool (or at all) sport clothes. See what I found in Etsy.


Sellers, left to right, top to bottom: phippsart, designsbyamber, InspiredByMe, gaiaconceptions, Ahpeele, HerbanDevi

Apart from that, I have been all week (and many more weeks) working on a web application to customize items (hey, I'm a bored Computer Science kid). What does this mean? Well, I created a sample page where customers can customze the colors of my silk earrings. For now this is all up for testing, and as soon as I finish the main page and shop pages, I will ask around to see if any other seller would like to have their items here to make their customers life easier =)

Please take a look at it here:

Play with it all you want, it is only a test page. What do you think? As a buyer: would you like to use it? As a seller: would it be useful for your business?
Thanks a lot! I need input/feedback on this tool to see if it has any future, if sellers are willing to use it, before I start building the administration part. (The graphic part still needs some improvement but I'm on it lol)

Oh, and also need a NAME for it! So far I named it customizer, but it doesn't sound cool enough :P - Help me!

And finally, one more thing. I love to design catalogs, covers, etc, so I thought I could transform the monthly newsletter into an online magazine to combine both my passions: design and fashion. I'm not interesting enough to write more than 2 - 3 pages so... anyone wants to collaborate with an article related to handmade and if possible: fashion? Anything could fit in: kids, decoration, fahsion, beauty, .... Contact me if you want to help!


Ooops forgot one thing! If you live outside Europe and would like to get one of my items for Christmas, tomorrow is the last day I can ship it and assure you it will arrive on time. Please make your Christmas shopping by 4th December.

What next?

    Good luck sticking to your workout routine! The customizer is a neat idea - I'll look forward to seeing you polish it up more :D
