….and I have received my first ‘wages’!! I know it is not a life changing amount yet I cannot explain how proud and excited I was when this email popped into my inbox. I have had 5 orders in total in just over a week and must admit to being pretty chuffed with that.
I have made a whole heap of new products and listed them on my Etsy shop. Here is a group shot of them all before they went on sale.
My focus now is to investigate some ideas for some different products and continue to get my head round this social media business. Am not a natural seller or good at drawing attention to myself so some work is needed there. Oh and there is a little thing called Christmas to be enjoying too!
Yep my Etsy shop is finally open! And even better than that, I have made my first sale! Okay it was from a friend (huge thank you to him!), still it is my very first sale…hopefully the first of many.
It was quite a nerve wracking experience listing my products and opening my shop – though nothing compared to how scared I was actually letting my friends know! Being an incredibly anxious person, I am seriously proud of myself for actually managing to put myself in this situation…even if I am finding it a little hard. Seeing my products online and available to sell was such an amazing feeling and actually seeing one parcel ready to go off to a buyer…wow!

Have been busy this week putting the finishing touches to Mr B’s Button Jamboree. Finally it seems like I am (almost) ready to launch my little business out into the big wide world. It has been a very long time coming – they do say though that good things come to those who wait!
I now have my own little logo and have spent the last few days designing my business card. Although it is fairly simple – I am not known for being a whizz-kid on computers – I really love it. Let me know what you think!
Social media has been a focus for me too this week. I have been getting to grips with Twitter and Facebook…I say getting to grips…more like getting confused! Using Facebook for business purposes is quite odd compared to what I am used to and I have never really bothered with Twitter before. So there may not be much on them at the moment, please though do have a look and watch them grow along with my business hopefully.
After all this time it feels weird to be at the point of ‘opening shop’. I am a big whirly mixture of excitement, nerves, anxiety and happiness. Think I will set a launch date soon…eek!
