So I believe today is the day the training wheels come off. As I move forward with my business, I'd like to take this moment to celebrate one of my small success stories. Today is the day I was listed on Etsy's website as 'new talent'!
For those of you not in the know, Etsy is this fantastic website where it allows designers to post images of their work and sell them online for a small fee. It's a great space that allows you to get your work out there. I am living proof that this forum really works! Shortly after this article posting I received a message from a buyer at a museum shop. We'll see if he places an order, but the nod is what really makes me happy. My work in a museum??? WOW.
Ok, I'm done bragging for now. As my journey continues you'll find there are some days where you are sad, disheartened and slightly depressed. Starting a new business is not for the faint of heart. This is one of those moments where I'm going to take the opportunity to jump up and down with happiness. I hope you'll join me in my reverie!
