(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! 🙂
Congrats on your Etsy-versary and here’s to many more! I love your Alphabet Soup illustration (not sure if you can print that in an 8×10 or if that even qualifies.) My second favorite is We All Float. My son is a huge! balloon fan. He’d get a kick out of this!
Easy: Static (my favorite)
and Farm (close second)
I just want to say congrats! Don’t enter me in the contest! 🙂 I’m spoiled enough already and have an artist in the house! I have no room for prints!!! lol
Happy Etsyversay! Congratulations. I would LOVE to make one or two sales a week, I think that’s fantastic! And I too am (happily) owned by a cat 🙂
Accordingly, I love the Curiosity’s Little Sister photo.
Happy Etsyversary! I suppose in the unlikely event I win I’d go with “We All Float”, since the Alphabet Soup’s too pricey.
Happy Etsyversary! I have to completely piggyback on Rachel Kate’s comment, and go with We All Float too.
Your digital doodle shop is great, keep up the great art!
Congratulations – this gives me hope as an Etsy newbie! And I love your doodles! My pick is Wandering 🙂
thanks for visiting my blog! you have a cute shop and a nice looking blog 🙂 its cold here today…but the backyard is starting to look so pretty with the flowers out and all! Congrats on your etsy-versary! We have been on since 2/24. no sales yet…but it has been rewarding to see all the other shops and meet other sellers from all over the world.
i really like the print you have, we all float.
Happy Etsy-versary! I’ve admired your photography for a long while, now.
I love this print: http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php?listing_id=9413125
Congrats on your 1-year Etsy Anniversary! That’s a huge accomplishment and you should be very proud of yourself =) If I am lucky enough to win your very generous contest, I would love to win two small prints – the keeper of lost hearts and cupcake girl!
Well done you – 1 or 2 a week is a great first year achievement. I love your photography – I think your ‘one in a million’ print was one of my first treasury choices way back when 🙂 but IF I was to win this – I’d choose Bloom – it’s gorgeous colours and great use of depth of field make it a winner for me.
I can’t decide. I love your “locked up”I photo! I also love “you belong to me .” All your work is wonderful!
I’m a big fan of your “I carry your heart” 8×10 print – so adorable.
congrats and happy etsyversary!!
i LOVE the her story will never be written print! i used it in a treasury recently. it’s beautiful.
Happy etsyversary! I get get giddy with each sale. I can’t see it ever getting old no matter how many sales I have. Good luck in the year to come!
Happy Etsyversary!!! I would very much love to have Swallowed and Fall Foliage in 4×6 if I won!! 🙂
Delightful prints! I really like the “We are all Handmade!” Congratulations on your first Etsy Anniversary. I wish you many more successful years. Thank you…..Cindi
Love Alphabet soup!! I know, about the price limit, I’d just have to pay the difference. Love the photography too.
I LOVE wandering- congrats on your anniversary ^debbie^
I Love I carry your heart, it is so sweet.
I would love to win the one in a million or mother duck. Great photos! Happy etsy-versary.
It would be so very hard to choose because I love them all.
But I would pick: The Forgotten Bride (1 or 2), Mother May I or Her Story Will Never Be Written.
But seriously, they all rock.
I want to win “lost graces 9” on deviant Art.
