Good morning all! I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Mine was delightful. Nick and I went home to spend time with family and friends, then spent the weekend mostly hanging out together around the house. Somewhere in between eating leftovers and watching the Hallmark channel, I finished photographing items for my shop, uploaded and edited the photos, wrote descriptions, and set prices and shipping costs. Whew! I’m glad that I spread it all out over a few days so as not to feel overwhelmed. Just a few minutes ago I logged into etsy and clicked “publish,” effectively opening my shop for all the world to see. Care to take a gander?
Ahhhhh! I’m so excited! Just looking at it makes me want to go out thrifting for more treasures to sell. I know that there are tons of sellers on etsy and it may take a while for me to make a single sale, and that’s okay. I’m proud of myself just for taking the leap of faith. Also, I’m super nervous about being able to ship items quickly and efficiently (seeing as I work full time and all), so I’m okay if it takes a while for me to get to that step.
Thank y’all for being so supportive of me throughout this process. I don’t know if I would have done it if I didn’t have y’all telling me I could (plus the built-in accountability of having announced publicly that today would be d-day kept me from using fear and laziness as an excuse to delay it). Y’all are the best!
