Little Steps...

Firstly...I apologise for my blog absence. Term one at school is always much to do, children to settle in, parents to help, mentoring staff...the list goes on and I wont bore you with the details. By the time I sit down of an evening...i am dozing off!

But... I digress.
I have been thinking about opening an Etsy store for some time now. My good friend Mel (lubs ya girl) is the one who planted the seed awhile back. Another friend, Toni Ransfield, has just opened an etsy store...go girl...selling her beautiful polymer clay flower canes and puffy hearts (I so adore both). So this has got me thinking again.!!!
Some of the questions and quandaries I have, are:
  • is my work original enough
  • is it eyecatching for people to be interested in buying?
  • would people want to buy/wear it!!?
  • what would I name my store
  • can I invest the necessarytime into this? no laughing!!! I am an insecure twit...I have these convo's with myself!!!

Any thought or advice so welcome!!!

Oh...and the little step...I actually registered on etsy...hehe. Well, I did say little!

Welcome back, Julz...we missed you! ((hugs)) Well done on opening an Etsy store! Your work is fabulous so I'm sure your store will be a roaring success :-)

I wish I had some advice for you but I don't even sell my work! LOL I know that Sharon of Mana Moon has been on Etsy for a little while, so perhaps she can offer some advice :-)

Btw, there is a little award waiting for you on my blog ;-) Congrats! ♥

Hi! I have no experience on selling on the internet, but I think you should give it a try because your creations are beautiful and original. What about Julz as the name of your store? Have a very nice week!

Go ahead Julz ... do it. :) Your creations are unique and beautiful and should be shared with the world. I agree, Julz sounds great as a store name.
