A Very Profitable Weekend

WOW! I woke up Saturday morning and for the first time in a long time, didn't check email until after my shower and about 2 cups of coffee. I had an 11 am appointment to get my hair cut, then lunch with my mom and maybe do some shopping, so I didn't really have a lot of leisure time to spare. I had a few minutes to check things out while waiting for my husband to finishing dressing.
I first check email, then went to my Etsy shop. I noticed there were 4 less items listed than there were the night before, so I thought I had some things that expired. I looked in the expired listings, nothing new in there. Then checked sold, and I had sold 4 items! It must have just happened after I checked email because there was no notices in the email then, but when I check again after being at Etsy, there was my email from Etsy and Paypal. I was so excited, I almost missed my hair appointment while I gathered the items she ordered to put them aside so I could get them ready for shipping when I got home.
I tell you, this sale really made the difference for me. I hadn't sold anything since January, despite having plenty of views, and I was starting to get discouraged. I now have a renewed ambition to keep on creating.
So watch for new pieces to appear in my shop very soon!


  1. Congratulations on your sales. I haven't sold anything since the first of January either. I keep hoping, so maybe I'll be next. :)

  2. It will happen, I'm just glad I have the patience that made me stick with it.
    Good luck, you'll have a sale soon enough!

  3. Congrats!! My sales also had a boost this past weekend, maybe the economy is back on the rise!!

  4. Thank you. I just wrote on your blog. Yes, it would be good if things picked up. We sure could use some positive karma!
