(This girl and her smug little cat is in the shop at Calobee Doodles!)
I didn’t actually start selling until the 31st of March or so, but as of the 22nd I’ve officially been with Etsy for a year. And what a year it’s been! I went from feeling like I’d probably never sell my work to making 1-2 sales per week. That may be small potatoes for most, but it’s a huge accomplishment for me.
I also picked up “doodling,” which was both an excellent business move AND a lot of fun! It’s opened the doors to doing custom work, which I really enjoy, and it’s more relaxed and low-key in comparison to my photography.
All in all, I give the last year’s business adventures an “A.” There have been bugs here and there, but ultimately, opening an Etsy shop has been a very fulfilling, rewarding experience.
And now for the best part: in honor of my Etsy-versary, I’m having another contest! Yay!
Here’s the nitty gritty:
- The prize is one print of your choice from any of my shops, up to a $20 value. Two small prints would be acceptable as well, as long as they total no more than $20 (not including shipping).
- Leave a comment on this blog entry and tell me which print(s) you want to win.
- The contest ends March 31st at 11:59 p.m. I will draw the winners on April 1st and contact the winner by e-mail.
(Please note that comments are turned off at Vox and Livejournal, so youâ€™ll need to comment at the blog.sixhours.net address to qualify, and donâ€™t forget to leave your e-mail address so I can contact you if you win! This contest is open to U.S. and international readers alike!)
Good luck! 🙂
