I Just Can NOT figure out!

OK. First off, I'm not feeling up to par. Just kinda achy all over and my head hurts where I just can't focus on what I'm trying to do.
Second, I've am TOTALLY computer Ignorant! It's actually kinda amazing that I can even maintain my BLOG! So this is the problem: I've been trying to set up and open my Etsy shop. Obviously thousands (or probably millions) of people do it and have no problems. But I have been struggling along, not quite sure of what I'm doing but thinking that it's going OK and then I tried loading my photos! To be honest, I'm not really sure about this whole pixel thing and the "nice" people in my life don't know anything about any of this. AND of course the people that DO know about this stuff can't understand my questions or are too busy to help or too frustrated with my learning abilities.
So, I have all these little Valentine cat (and 1 dog) dolls that I wanted to list THIS weekend and I am totally stuck. When it comes to technical stuff, I tend to do the Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde thing. I have A LOT patience for most things but the technical/mechanical... well you don't even want to know about the VCR incident years ago!
So, I gave up! I listed 12 dolls on Ebay.
I know, I know, Etsy has all these great articles but...dah!
If only I had someone to visually show me...but I don't, so if you feel like checking out any of my stuff (which I've shown in previous posts) they are on Ebay.
I'm going to have a BIG glass of wine and then it's off to bed.

Hey Cindi! I'll adopt the whole bunch of you. Tell Blue that Sophie can be a little bossy, but she's actually a big bluffer, so not to believe it. :) You have a great weekend - we are going to get more SNOW. Time to get crafting, I think. :)) xox Pam

You is true hook a lot of Norman Rockwell, I have a great book with a lot of his jobs. I adore his style and way of transmit emotions.
