I recently discovered Etsy.com. A website like eBay where artists and craftsmen can sell their handmade goods. Etys gives me the opportunity to be an entrepreneur from my sewing room. This is genius! I've always wondered whether anyone else would find my little creations worthy. I've had 3 sales since opening shop in July. It's kind of a slow process, but I am having so much fun with it. Today I discovered that someone from another shop including one of my pieces in their Treasury listing. Sweet validation! I work full-time in a sales office and my Etsy shop provides both an outlet for my obsession with crafting and a distraction from the stresses of the sales world. I highly recommend it.
