  • Things are looking up!

    Hi everyone,

    Just wanted to share my excitement!
    I have been on a right downer for the past couple of months and I haven't been creating anything! I shut up shop on eBay, took all my listings off everywhere else, lost interest in my website, blogs and everthing!

    But...

    I came through it! I've (reluctantly) re-opened on ebay (need the sales!), put a bit more effort into my website and relisted everything on Etsy. Yesterday I had my very first sale on my website and a sale through my ebay shop and then this morning I had my second Etsy sale ever! The website and ebay sales were just small fry really but the Etsy one was for my Winnie the Pooh bunting which I had convinced myself would never sell!
    It's all just what I needed to kick me back into shape and get the creative juices flowing again! I'm off to sew,sew,sew!

    Yey! I'm pleased to hear you're feeling perked up. Good luck with getting back into the swing of things - plenty of moral support oozing out of the forum for you!

    Let us know how you get on.

          Do you know, I think that was part of the problem! I stopped coming onto the forum (mainly to shut hubby up because he said I was on it too much!) but I think I really needed it! Two of the main things that drive me are appreciation and encouragement and I don't really get that from anyone else! I need you guys!

              Definitely, it's a really good support network, it makes you realise that other people are in similar situations with the same worries etc. I find that it really helps me to have a blog, there you can sort out all your thoughts and talk through what your intentions are, which keeps your brain in order!

                  Congratulations!

                  The people on this forum are great for moral boosts, I always come on here if I am feeling down and it makes me want to work even harder.

                  I wish you many more future sales

                    That's great news and good you are feeling "on the up". Certainly being on the forum helps a lot to know that there is a support network. Good luck and hope it is the start of a good patch.

                          I wondered where you were - I noticed that your shop on youcraftlot had nothing on it. Good to have you back. I have got my first fair at Gisborough Hall on Sunday and I am quite nervous.

                          Glad you're back with us!
