Is This The Beginning?

Swimming through the items available on Etsy can be inspiring, uplifting, and exhausting. Getting found can be even more of a trip! I listed my first items on Etsy May 31, 2008 and it seems that, as of late, I have been seeing a bit of a rise in my "notice-ability" (if you count that as a word).

Just last week my Long Eared Beanie with Pom-poms was included, briefly, in this Storque Post.

And I found out from the lovely shop carolinascreations that my Lacy Green Slouchy Beanie was even featured on the front page this weekend!

This is the first time that I have been featured in any way on the Storque and my first time on the front page as well. My sales have slowly started picking up and I am convinced that if I had more time to dedicate to my shop that it would flourish even further. Granted, school takes precedence right now, but this gives me hopes that once I'm done I can take my shop further and further! This could be the beginning of my dreams coming true :D

I foresee much more hard work, sweat and tears. I certainly don't expect this ride to come easily, but I am excited to be on it, and I am excited to share it with all of you, so that none of us feel that we are in this by ourselves.

I know what you mean! I've been on Etsy since 2008, and being very honest with myself I never put a huge amount of work into my shop. But since I opened my second shop I've tried really hard, I set up a facebook page and blog far more often. And it's paid off in sales the past couple of months. It's really encouraging to see some results at last. Best of luck!!
