Yesterday was a really good day
Even though little Billy was so very sick. He is so cute when he is sick...you just want to squish him even more. He's feeling much better today and will be going to school. :) I got everything listed in my shop yesterday......all fifty five different items. I sold twenty items yesterday...my best day ever on Etsy. I'm still in shock. Thank you everyone. :) I also love it, because it gives me an excuse to go shopping for more goodies. :) I had screwed up on two items in one order and was feeling rather low about it. I try really hard to not screw up and it was one of my best customers. Everything was resolved, but I just couldn't get over it. I'm glad I forced myself to gather up some more items and get on with it. My shop is my thing...the one thing that is mine (I do get a lot help....my photographer/driver is great) and I'm awful proud of what I've managed to do in the last six months. I still can't believe I was a vendor at Silver Bella....that was too cool. A little shop has always been in the back of my mind for years and years....I had bought the whole set of books by Victoria Magazine about having a business. I never thought I'd be able to have one with military life...we move way too much for a brick and mortar...which would be amazing...maybe when he retires. :) So it was hard on me to see that I had screwed up twice on one order. I'm so hard on myself...I need to cut myself some slack. I think we've all been there and done that. :) I'm going to try harder to list items more frequently...instead of letting a month go by...I couldn't believe it had been a month..oy. Proof that I used my camera is in my store......the picture of the vintage gown.....I took those with my new camera. :) Happy day.....I need to get to work on my two remaining swaps.....quilt squares and a mobile.
