This month was beautiful! I had sales, I met amazing crafters, I found support of old and new friends! It makes me incredibly happy to learn that people who never met me like what I make. Before I sold to coworkers, to friends, to friends of my friends and few people at the craft fair. But still, in all those transactions personal factor most likely played part. But this month showed me that my designs are liked and even loved by people who don't know me and probably will never meet me. To me as a crafter, this is the best compliment!
Of course, it wouldn't be the start of new business without downfall and turmoil in other areas. My home has been neglected, I haven't done much fun or meaningful stuff with my kids this month, which breaks my heart into pieces. My head is just now slowing down from all that spinning it has done in the past weeks. At some point I measured my life in new listings, treasuries, showcases, sales and was checking my profile, my policies and my favorites every 5 minutes with no reason at all. Now that the Christmas rush is coming to an end I feel much more relaxed. I have projects lined up, I am going to take kids for walks and enjoy myself and the holidays.
One of the things that made me very happy this month is that my favorite 3 strand design ended up being as attractive on photos as it is "in person". I sold a lot of them in Chicago and now 2 of them found home through my online shop.
Bella in earth colors and and Bella in turquoise were sold this month.
Mahogany and black copper (see pics) are still available in my shop.
This design is called Bella and ironically enough I don't have one in my jewelry box yet.
Oh well, I have different Bella "hanging on my neck" - my sweet little Bella who is dreaming of butterflies in her toddler bed right now:)
So here it is, my monthly update on the shop. I decided that once a month I am going to write about my etsy developments. It shouldn't be overwhelming;) next etsy update is on January 14.
