Do you remember my very first post? A lot of time has passed since then. I did work on my wallets for a while, and even sold a few in real life and also through Etsy to faraway lands, but I never tried hard enough, and it slowly got pushed aside, as I turned to do things that didn’t require me to handle quite so much PR. Etsy is a great tool, but it consists on so much accompanied work. Its not enough to design and sew something, I now need to spend time taking good pictures of it, writing about it, publishing it and try and keep everyone informed about it…
But after consistently ignoring my Etsy store for a long while, something changed. In December I gave birth to my beautiful baby boy, Tom, who fills most of my time these days. I enjoy spending time with him, yet I find myself craving to get back on the creation track. When you can’t find time to do any creative project, you begin to wish you could do even the things you didn’t want to before.
I’ve started, little by little, to reimmerse myself in everything creative (and preferably profitable). I have managed to get a few precious hours each week in which I slowly and steadily work on designing fashion prints to sell on-line, opening a business in front of the authorities, and updating my creative blog (most important indeed!).
And so I’ve decided to try and revive my Etsy store. These past few weeks I have added a lot of new items: some of them were ready for a long time and just needed me to do SOMETHING with them, while others are quite new. I didn’t publish everything at once, because I want to have something new on my store every day for the next week or so.
I also plan to expand beyond wallets. I am working on a few exciting ideas and hopefully I could show them to you soon, assuming I’ll be a good girl and finish all of my chores.
