EtsyHacks how I love thee

April 4, 2009

In case you haven’t heard of it yet Etsyhacks is an absolutely brilliant website that lets you install scripts to make your etsy life just that little bit easier. In their words:

Etsy’s development team are working hard to bring out new features for the site, but there’s only so much they can do. They’re going to focus on features that bring the most benefit to the most users. These scripts are provided as examples of things that can be done without needing Etsy to change anything, but which (hopefully) make the user experience better and more efficient. Less time spent administering your Etsy business, more time spent making things.

I love how kind they are to Etsy here, I remember thinking when I first heard of Etsyhacks that it was a shame there was a need for 3rd party, unpaid programmers to bring us the little changes that we keep on asking for. Anyway – back to shouting the praises of Etsyhacks!

It currently works in Firefox although there are plans to make them available for other browsers. Here’s a sample of some of the delights Etsyhacks can bring you:

fast tagger

Add all your listing’s tags at once.

bulk image uploader

Upload up to five images at once when editing a listing.

copy listing

Quickly create a new listing based on an existing one.

printable receipt enhancer

Apply IDs and class names to elements on the printable receipt page, so that you can use stylesheets to change the appearance of the page. Change the font size, hide sections, change colours, add a logo

For the full list click here.ย  They run this for free but I’m sure any donations would be most appreciated.

Boba Fett Custom my little pony

boba fett custom my little pony

boba fett custom my little pony

I had a custom request about a week ago on etsy for a Boba Fett pony for a husband’s birthday. Here’s what I came up with! I’m a huge star wars fan so this was really fun for me. I tried to keep him authentic whilst still being a pony version. I really enjoyed doing the custom request so here’s hoping I get more.

It has, however, moved all my custom star wars pony wants up the list so be on the look out for a chewbacca and darth vader soon!* A stormtrooper will be along even quicker as he’s almost done, just have to finish off the last of the painting.

* erm by ‘soon’ i probably mean a month or two, lol.

Plants Vs Zombies

April 3, 2009
Plants Vs Zombies Popcap Game

Plants Vs Zombies Popcap Game

Help! Zombies have invaded!

And don’t look now, but they’re coming for you next!

You’ll need to think fast and plant faster to fend off this mob of helmet-clad, pole-vaulting zombies. So grab your gardening gloves, because you’re in for a riotous fight with the fun-dead!

PopCap’s newest game, Plants vs. Zombies, is coming on May 5th… so check back soon!

Every so often PopCap turn out a game that is ridiculously fun and addictive. Silly little flash games for the most part but fun none the less, a bit of light relief. I can’t promise that this one will play well but just look at the art! So cute – you know, in a zombie flesh eating kind of way…ย ย  It looks like you have to pay for this one but just wait for a little while and they’ll be a free version somewhere or other ๐Ÿ™‚

busy busy busy

April 3, 2009

Stupidly busy today.
Finished one custom order and took the pictures.
Cleaned my ‘workspace’ in the bedroom and then the rest of the bedroom. The bloke vacuumed and did his half god bless him. The owner of my flat is selling and we’re stuck with organising the valuation etc (we get a good deal on this flat, it’s the least we can do really).
Finishing off a story for my creative writing course I’m taking as part of my honours. It’s due in today and I have writers block!! It’s not worth a huge amount thankfully.
I’m meant to be going to the post office as well but screw it, tomorrow will have to do.
So why am I posting in my blog when I should be doing any of the above? Easy – procrastinating is the key to a happy life ๐Ÿ˜€

arrgghh wee pirate booties

arrgghh wee pirate booties

Ok so I don’t have a kid or any plans there of but how freaking adorable are these?!

They’re from the seller PrettyLittle who had the cutest range of kiddie shoes and slippers ever. Prices seem to range from about $20 to $40 – well worth it basically. She has a bunch of ridiculously well made items ranging from the pirate booties (shown above) to bunnies and mice. It’s enough to make you want to breed – almost.

Doomsday

With the rash ofย  zombie and post apocalyptic films and games that have been coming out these last two years I’ve been wondering. When the end of the world comes will it be zombies or bombs? Let me know what your thoughts are.
