I did it!

I have been wanting to open an etsy shop for more than a year. I finally did it and stuck a link over there on the right!

I used the Holiday Bazaar as a hard deadline for getting a bunch of stuff done at once, planning on listing things that didn't sell. A major reason I've been putting off the shop is that I didn't want to open it with just a couple of things.

Then I had to actually FILL and OPEN the shop.

Wise words from my friend Stephanie - There's a lot to learn, just jump right in and learn along the way.

So I did last night. And woke to find my first sale! May be my only one, but it's very exciting.

I'll be photographing, listing, and more making this weekend. And some Christmas fun along the way!

Another good quilty friend mentioned a Flickr app to get photos from my phone uploaded.  It was super easy - I don't know how I had missed knowing about that app.  So I was able to upload the Crate and Barrel tree I mentioned in my last post.  It was super cute at the Bazaar with all the zipper pouches hanging like ornaments. 

Have a very Merry Christmas!  

I'll be off for the next week or so, then back with a year end stash report.  Even though I haven't been reporting weekly as I did last year, I have been tracking just as carefully.

Congrats on your new shop! I definitely want to buy one of your earbud circles! But I'm not loving fabric in the ones you currently have listed. Do you have any more of them in the works? I don't have anything specific in mind, although I love the ones in your picture that use Full Moon Dot, Park Slope, and Weekends. Thanks! : )
