It's been one year since I listed my first items on Etsy. It has been such a lovely, wonderful, challenging year.
I've hit some milestones: I sold 105 things and gained 385 hearts in my first year. Besides that, four of my friends have opened shops! Most importantly, I feel like my items are really good. I started out not sure about what I loved to do. In the past year, I have really become a fiber artist. I knit and I sew and I like to mess up my yarn and fabric.
Selling on Etsy has been so great for my mind and my happiness. It stimulates me, challenges me, and validates me.
I'm starting to get ready for the fall and for Christmas. I have a little stock pile of mittens and hats. I'm working on scarves. I'm streamlining my packaging and generally preparing to strike it rich! hahaha!
