Working from home... all alone, can be REALLY hard some days. Occasionally I get messages from buyers that are so sweet that remind me again and again why I am doing what i'm doing. I think many people [whom I know personally] think i'm crazy for working full time on my designs and trying to earn a living. And somedays I think i'm crazy too and question myself. I've questioned this hundreds of times in the last two months. I remember when I had reached my 50 sold items mark on Etsy and literally thinking this: "mmmm....I think i've sold to all the people in the world who like my items....now what am I going to do?" <- I still am in disbelief when I have a new order... I won't know what to think when I've reached 100! My goal for this time next year is to be passed 500 orders... fingers crossed :
Annnyways, I will always be saying thank you over and over again to those of you who make the effort in supporting independent designers like myself. As my little business grows, I am trying to make more of an effort in including "special things" to my orders, particularly to the ones who leave me a note that gives me a week and month's worth of encouragement. You have no idea how much this helps! :/
As a thank you to Sarah's note I included a little Tilly wall ornament, I hope this makes her day!
