Here are a few of my newest additions. I'm having a blast creating. I get side traced so easily. But it always comes out good.
This is one of my favorites. It fits me of course. But I don't make money keeping all my product.
I feel like I have finally found my "thing". Something I love to do everyday. I dream about sewing these outfits. Crazy huh?
I'm working on getting noticed by potential customers. Etsy has many areas to get great help. Forums for questions and groups to join for support and education.
I have been reading a bit of unhappiness with the new seller rules. Etsy now allows sellers to have other people make their products. I don't think it will take long for sellers who are actually manufacturers to show up. I have seen them already. It isn't too hard to find them. However, I see Etsy as a simple avenue for selling to my customers and giving them a place to find me. I realize I need to be proactive in attracting customers. Opening a store, adding products and waiting for the sales to roll in just isn't going to happen. It takes work! Sending submissions to magazines is pretty scary. But it is necessary to market myself. No one else is going to do it for me. I learn new things everyday in both my sewing and marketing. But for now, I'm enjoying the process.
Until next time....
