I finally did it!!! I actually signed up for an etsy.com shop and I am working on crafts to post in it right now. I am so excited. I rarely follow through with anything I plan, but this time I aim to change that. With DH's help and encouragement, I know I can do this!
Just in time, Etsy is launching a Holiday Success Boot Camp and I am joining in. Here is my pledge, made public, so you can help hold me accountable.
I, Jeannette @ http://www.etsy.com/shop/TheCraftyHippo, pledge to participate in the Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp to the best of my abilities. I vow to check in every week, do my homework and support my fellow Holiday Boot Campers. I will read the weekly newsletters and blog posts, check in on the weekly forum thread, read the weekly blog post, check off the checklists and salute the mascot. I promise to share what I've learned with those who need it, support my fellow Etsy indiepreneurs and, most of all, have a positive and persistent attitude. I understand that together we can spread the word about our handmade and vintage goods, making this holiday season a more unique and meaningful one to gift givers and give-ees everywhere!
Well, there it is! There isn't anything in the shop yet, but I am almost done with my first craft so I should have it up for sale by Sunday. If you don't mind, would you hop on over to my shop every other week or so and let me know how I'm doing and what I can change? Thanks loves! You all are awesome!
