Gearing Up

The process has been slow, but I will be opening an Etsy shop very soon (eeek! *fingers crossed*).

I know this is not a big deal to a lot of people, but it's a lot more work than I've realized...and as a creative person, I am sadly not much of a business person.  Perhaps setting everything up and the planning aspect takes more time than anything, especially when I'm super impatient with myself. *sigh*

So here's to all you artists out there, who sell your art, crafts, and publications - I salute you.

  1. that is SO exciting Charlyn! I cannot wait to see it go up, and the exciting things in your shop! I can only imagine how much work it is to set up a shop. I salute you (and all the store owners out there) too.
