I did it!
After two years of saying that I was going to do this, I finally did it!
I opened my first Etsy shop. It's kind of a weird feeling. I mean, every month I send dozens of pillows, table runners, wood signs, tote bags, wreaths and other products to a few stores in my area, but this is different. The Etsy products are sitting here ready to ship, staring me in the face, right here in my living room. What if no one looks at my shop? What if I don't sell one thing? What if I am an Etsy failure? Fear is a bummer.
But I have Faith. I know that God is here with me holding my hand, giving me strength to combat my fear. I have the faith and understanding that if it is meant to be it will be.
And I got people.
Awesome people like Debra at Common Ground who allow people like me to showcase their Etsy items on her blog.
And I got the Graphics Fairy who lets me download free graphics like this cow, has an awesome party Brag Monday, and has lots of cool doable DIY projects and ideas. Lola and Bea's first sale was a pillow and a wood sign I designed using vintage images from the Graphics Fairy.
I got people like the Etsy shop GRAPHIQUE and Digital Things who are always there for me 24/7 when I need them.
And there are people like you. Yes you. Who take time out of there busy day to read, browse, and sometimes leave lovely comments that make my day.
Do you have an Etsy shop or an online store? I would love to know. Please leave me a comment so I an come and visit you.
Lola and Bea products will continue to be sold in gift shops around Arkansas and Missouri.
Have a wonderful day.
