Hi everyone! So today’s post was going to be another ‘this is what I’ve learnt’ kind of post but not only did I not want to write another of those posts, I have something new and exciting to share. If you read my last post, you will know I am winging it for a while. Part of what I want to do as a result of this decision is to work for myself. I had admitted that I didn’t know exactly what this would entail and that I knew there would be some challenges. However, last week I had a brainwave. I have decided to open my own etsy shop!
I am so excited for this venture. My products will be handmade crochet items, with things like bookmarks, coasters, phone socks and tea cosies. I decided to go with crochet because I went through a phase where I loved to crochet and it is a pretty easy skill once you’ve mastered it. I thought I would start small and then once I get better at it I can make more challenging things to sell.
I know running an etsy shop and making sales isn’t easy. I know I probably won’t be making money overnight but even if I got a couple of sales a week I’ll be happy. I am learning that the creating is time consuming but I’m determined to make this work for me. I haven’t created everything yet and I don’t have a name but I just wanted to share this piece of news with you all.
Thanks for reading!
