MY ADVENTURES IN LIFE AND JEWELRY DESIGN!
Oh yummy...cream cheese frosting sounds so good!Don't get discouraged with your shop...it is a slow process, just enjoy your creativity. It took me a long time, before I got rolling and I'm still not really rolling. Keep renewing items in your shop, if you don't do it a few times a week, you will get buried under all the other listings on Etsy. This past fall I got my stuff in a local shop, so that helps me some...it be better if they wouldn't take 50% of it, but it's a good place and I don't have to worry about listing and taking photos. I never did a show, but I plan to try one this year. I know how it is having one income...it's like that for me too. When I started I pretty much focused on making earrings. The were cheap to make and sold easily. From that money I would buy more supplies...I didn't get far fast, but over time I was able to save some money and buy tools I needed. I hope I help you some. If you ever have any other questions, just ask. :)Hope you had a beautiful day. :)
Thx candace, It's nice to know that everyone starts out slow.. I haven't done any advertising, except on my facebook page.. so I really need to do that.. I know eventually it will get better..
