Show Off Monday...

I'm not very good at "sticking".

I usually start something, enjoy it for a while and then move on.

That's exactly what I did with my Etsy shop...Opened, sold a couple of things...got bored...didn't sell enough...didn't list again.
But for some reason I'm learning to be patient...did I hear age?...NEVER!!!!

Anyway, going back:

I decided this time to stick with it so I went back to the work table...(no studio here, just a little table, in the family room, next to the TV because I need the noise)
and had fun with some pieces.
Took pictures, (aren't the Etsy pictures just the best?)
Change the look of the store,
and sold some pieces!...(not a lot, but many more that I had imagined)

Today I'm not "bragging" about selling, I'm just "bragging" about being able (for the first time in a long, long time) to go back to something I abandoned before and giving it another chance.

Could this this be a sign of maturity??? No, not age...maturity I said!!!

If you have time this Labor Day and would like to "brag" about something or someone in your life or you would like to "show off" and share what you been up to...don't forget to leave me a message with your link and add you...(Mr. Linky is acting u today!)

I did the same thing...opened my etsy store in 06, listed a few things that didn't sell and never listed again until just recently. I have sold some things and figure it takes some time to get a following. It's not expensive like a brick and mortar store so what the heck? Congrats on your sales.

Enjoyed reading your little story. Some of the same feelings I have. Loved looking at your creations and hope to come back soon for more. Now let me see if I can remember where I just came from and how to get back here. Sometimes I click around faster than my mind can keep track ;-)
All started with PINK SATURDAY,Bellemere Cottage,then Rebecca Rose Design...now I have forgotten where I am RIGHT NOW.
That is why I accepted the DORY AWARD!
Thanks for the fun ride!
