Happy Dance!! 300 Sales on Etsy!!

HappyDance

I am so absolutely thrilled!  I made a HUGE sale (10 items to one amazing customer!) yesterday on Etsy, and have hit 300 sales! Some handmade items, and some vintage.

I couldn’t be more excited, when it happened, I immediately called my husband at work, and texted my sister and best friend. They were all happy for me, probably my husband most of all.

We all wonder if we have what it takes to stick with it and keep going, even when we are not selling much. My Bipolar 3 and PTSD make the ups and downs extra hard, but my love of making and selling new and vintage jewelry pushes me every day since I started the shop in January, 2014.

Having a hobby can be a life-saving aid for those of us that struggle with mental illness. Do you have a hobby? Does it help you with your mental or emotional struggles? Does you share your hobby with anyone else?

I would love to know the answers to these questions, and anything else you would like to share with me or my followers!

Have a WOnderful, and Wonder-Filled, Day!

Don’t Forget To Smile! They’re Contagious!?

  1. Congrats on success with Etsy. Retail sales is an exercise in faith. As far as maintaining mental health — my horses have kept me sane and tuned into my “real” self. Not having been able to ride the last few years has felt like a giant piece of myself has been missing.

    1. I understand completely about the horses. I don’t know what I’d do without my dogs and stray cats. That unconditional love is amazing.
