I am so excited to finally be able to announce that the store is open! It's off to a very modest start with only four ACEOs - so far. It will soon be growing in leaps and bounds with all kinds of fun new things! (It's taking me longer than I'd like to learn all the in's and out's of this new-to-me technology. I was able to get the little mini-Etsy gadget to show up in the sidebar today - yay! There is another gadget that rotates photos of items in your shop that I want to update to once I've filled the store.
It is odd to me how one step (out of many) can make you feel like a businesswoman, but with the listing of that first item, well, it's like it became official. I'm really (finally) in the business of selling my art (like I've said I was going to do for years). Mind you, I've been in business doing design work and the like for more than ten years, but this is different. This is a milestone!
No doubt, there will be struggles along the way. There already have been. I also think it's going to be fun, rewarding, challenging, frustrating, and a whole lot of other -ing words I can't think of at the moment. It's a step forward. Onward. Upward. Towards a new career. Or maybe a new way of life. I can't wait to see where it all goes. A new year full of things that have never been before! Did I mention I was excited?!?!!
I leave you with this quote that I just love:
