Most exciting thing ever: Part one


I am this weeks' featured seller on Etsy
 Can you believe it? I always wondered how you got to be one, then I got an email from Adam asking me if I could be? would be? 
It's too exciting for words. 
When I have told some friends unless they use Etsy they don't really get it and have kind of responeded: "OH Yay that is so exciting....... but what does that mean?"
I guess it means my little shop will be very busy. It has meant I have had a crazy 5 weeks getting ready for it.... trying to work out how much stock I will need? 
I still don't know but I guess I am going to find out in the next few days....

Thank you to fabulous Flossy-p who took some photos for me (above) and proof read my interview answers so I didn't sound like a dick and if you think I do then it's not her fault.

  3. AMAZING!!! I can't believe I "know" someone so famous!

    I always tell people that running a craft business is not a fairy tale, and the best the majority of hobby businesses can expect is to have fun and break even on the cost of their supplies. But then there's the occasional maker who is so inspired, so unique, so talented, so organised and so LUCKY as to having influential people looking their way when they happen to be doing something impressive. Those are the people who make the rest of us think craft business success is easy. And you're one of them. Well done on this and all your other hard-earned, well-deserved successes!
