Ermahgerd Berks Ter Ferner!

Ermahgerd Berks
Sometimes you run across something that just cracks you up!! Well that is what happened when I discovered Berks!

I was sitting here, minding my own business, checking Facebook posts when I see one of my friends had posted something in another language. No big deal. Other comments on this post were also in another language... For some strange reason I decided to look this up and I started with the word "Ermahgerd" and then the whole thing opened up for me. I watched a couple You Tube videos and just died laughing, this new Internet Meme really tickled my funny bone!

What do I do? I proceed to make a crazy Berks Gerl Bracelet and you can have one too!

So what is Berks? 
Berks (also known as "Ermahgerd" or "Gersberms") is an Internet Meme that bergern werth a gerl ernd her fravrit Gersberms Berks, ernd I thernk ert ers cerntergers!

Oops translation ----> Berks is an Internet Meme that began with a girl and her favorite Goosbumps Books, and I think it is contagious!

It seems to affect all age groups, and is similar to Igpay Atinlay! Gotta go cause they are coming to take me away, Ho ho, he he, ha ha!

Making it to the Etsy Front Page

Pine Cone Dangle Bead
I have been on Etsy for about two years and finally made the front page on August 1st, thanks to the lovely treasury made by Fiona from Bellecardsandgifts. It was a wonderful thing, lots of views for my shop, but nothing magical happened nor did money fall from the sky in a windfall.

A Crisp Morning .... Made Front Page of Etsy

Since the moment I opened Bead Lovers Korner shop on etsy, I have been trying to figure out ways to improve traffic and get noticed. How to make the front page, how to become a featured seller, etc, etc. Increased views, in my thinking, meant increased sales and more income. Over this time period I have learned a lot more about how to take pictures that might possibly be selected for more treasuries, making front page chances higher, but more importantly that translate into sales!
