Working Hard is Hardly Working

I've been busy, very busy. Sending, painting, knitting etc. I've been busy and I love it. I've almost hit 10 sales at my Etsy shop. I know the number 9 isn't something to be too excited about but I am. I never thought any of my stuff would actually sell, and I couldn't be happier. It's not about the money (although it certainly does help). I'm happy because I am doing what I love most. That's why all the hard work I've been doing isn't stressful, it isn't (too) tiring, and it doesn't make me cringe at the thought of "work."

So I have a few things up in the shop today.

Big Bad Wolf Hat.
This is the most comfortable hat you will ever encounter. I made one for myself even. Taylor tried it on and said he couldn't even tell it was on.

Brown and Red Flapper Style Headband.
Brown and Red are some of my Favorite colors. I couldn't come up with a better title.. (Sad face)

Blue Skies Flapper Style Headband. I love these colors as well.

And don't forget to check back here tomorrow cause I am going to have 3 new paintings up!

I was curious to know what other people thought of my Etsy shop, so I asked some other sellers for some help.

I got plenty of help and advice. They were honest but they didn't try to hurt my feelings.
I liked that.

I was given the advice to have lighter pictures. Just as I thought. (The last time Taylor and I went to get pictures the sun was setting.. they didn't turn out too good.)
 Have better descriptions, and smile more in the pictures.

So we tried again today. My Etsy Shop has been redone.
New pictures, new descriptions, and new items. So have a look.

Here are a few of the newer pictures. I personally think they look way better than the last batch.

Thanks to all of you on Etsy who helped me with my pictures!

Pssst, see those legwarmers? Those have just been sold and will be sent to their new home ASAP.
