Wooo hooo!

Just had my first ever Etsy sale. It was only a handmade felt heart, but you have to start somewhere. Feeling very pleased.

I have been on Etsy a while, but with no success and had let most of my listings expire, but a friend of mine has recently started selling on there and has been doing ok, so I thought it might be worth giving it another try. So last week I spent some time list some new items and having a sort out. I decided to go on the Etsy forum and see if I could get some feedback about my shop as this can be really useful. Not only did I get some really positive as well as useful feedback, one of the people looking also brought something. Yey!

So this as well as a really nice hot chocolate at lunch has cheered me up. I am not very good in January and the grey weather doesn't help, roll on spring time and lots more sales!!


  1. Ooooo pretty! Will you have them in Get Made too? :) x

  2. Well done you! Selling crafts will always be problematic - for lots of reasons - but you need to be in it to win it as they say! Keep positive -you have some lovely work to offer!
