I Have An Etsy Shop....


I have an Etsy shop...called "The Checkerd Rabbit". I'm not sure how I actually decided to start it. I usually have to be dragged kicking and screaming to try anything new...especially computer-internet things. It took forever for me to conquer using my blog...now I have to figure out the entire Etsy system....sigh. But...O my....I love playing with my shop. It's like having a pretend store that I can do whatever I want with...only I sell real things...things that I've made. It was amazing to me when I sold my first few items...people actually bought MY stuff. It took me days to come down off the ceiling.
It's kind of a religious experience... I'm in heaven when I sell something...in hell when I don't...and in purgatory while I'm making things to put into the shop. Will people like these? Will they sell? Will I be stuck with enough birthday cards to send to family and friends for the next 10 years? I'll let you know how it goes...
I'm never going to be able to retire on the proceeds of my shop...but for n0w...I'm completely in it's spell. Everyone should have one... :)
