One year ago, on a night like tonight, I took the plunge and opened an etsy shop. I'd been going back and forth about it for a year and finally figured, "what've I got to lose?"
What I love about the etsy community is how it keeps me on my toes. I'm already a pursuer of excellence, but with etsy even more so. What started out as a meaningless pastime has become (at least in my mind) a corporation. Whereas I used to simply describe my products in a few sentences, I now outline a detailed marketing and advertising mini-campaign for each product I list. Can I tell you how much I LOVE that?
I truly enjoy tapping into so many of my interests: photography, digital design, styling, etc just so I can list a single item. For someone like me, who likes to stick her nose into all kinds of industries, and who gets bored easily if boxed into one area of interest, it's been heaven.
Being on etsy has given my a deeper sense of pride for what I do not only as a creative person but also as someone who is now making a valuable contribution to my family's finances. My son can attend a quality private pre-school two days a week and my daughter can enjoy ballet lessons all because of my etsy supporters.
I'm looking forward to what the year ahead brings. My goal this year is to have at least 10 items available in my shop at all times.
Here is a sneak peek at the latest items making their way to my etsy shop real soon
