I love Etsy! I joined Etsy on December 17, 2008, and I opened my shop on May 23, 2011 (I know, I know, what took so long?). I am coming up to one year of selling. Well, kind of selling. I have sold 5 items so far and I am very excited about that. I get almost as excited about “views” and “admirers” as I do about a sale. Just the fact that someone views my stuff and likes something enough to “heart” it makes my day. I am so thankful to have found a place to showcase my handcrafted items for their viewing pleasure. If I sell something, then that is a bonus. I have 55 items listed now. Woot! My goal is to have 100+ items in my shop.
