“Done” might be a stretch, but I’ve taken the first baby steps and my Etsy shop is now open!!!!!!! If you look over there on my right-hand sidebar, you’ll even see a nice little widget that includes a few of my items. I have lots more to come over the next few days, but I’m really taking that “baby step” thing literally and trying not to be overwhelmed. Who knew there was so much involved with starting an Etsy store?!! From product photos, to alluring descriptions, to estimated shipping costs – I had no idea there would be so much to think about and get flummoxed by. Thank goodness for a visit from my biggest fan today with some much needed “snap-out-of-it” encouragement or I think I might have ended up hiding in a corner of the closet with my blankie!
A little about my shop… I’m still not entirely sure how to describe my “product line” but will say it involves color and scraps and time-worn layers. I’ve named the shop One January Day as a tribute to this new path I’m starting down – both in terms of the new beginnings presented by these precious January days and in honor of the new steps I’m taking towards a more purposeful and heartfelt life and career path. I want this January state of mind to guide me forward with an ever-present sense of adventure toward fresh ideas and a bold and brave approach in all I do.
More news to come, but wanted to be sure I shared these first steps with you – I can’t thank you enough for your support and encouragement!!
