Well, sales have really slowed down in my Etsy shop. I am finding it hard to stay motivated to create. I think the validation I got with every sale really took over for the “create for the sake of creation”. Sellers in general have said that sales are slow so I’m not taking it personally. I also think that the market for knit items has shrunk since it’s getting to be spring.

I’ve decided to go into R&D mode on the hats, scarves, and mittens. They aren’t selling anymore. Plus, I have some great ideas for shag scarves and lacy mittens. It’s going to take me awhile to work out the patterns and get good at spinning shag. I'll have the new designs ready for the fall. I hope to spend more time practicing my spinning, too. Maybe I'll be good enough to actually sell yarn one of these days!

I’m focusing now on my greeting cards and ACEOs. The picture in this post is my newest card. They are really fun to make but also haven’t sold. sigh.


  1. Hey Nancy,

    Every year I've ever sold stuff Jan-Aprilish is totally dead. It's the way of any kind of retail. You'll be surprised how stuff picks up later.


  2. Thanks Kj! I will stay positive and hope for things to pick up.


I would love to hear what you think of my posts! Leave a comment below.
