200th SALE @ Etsy and my first 2 Sales on Artfire

How happy am I? Well, very happy. Things seem to be picking up (Scraps looks for wood to knock on LOL). Thanks to all of my customers I feel that I am moving in the right direction. I am still not as busy as I would like to be but, I am sure as heck not going to complain. I have been getting a lot of custom orders and repeated customers.

In my dreams I hold a golden pair of scissors and the bright hot lights shine in my eyes as I am dressed to the nines (what ever that means). My hair so perfect, my make up done by someone, and a room full of people. I stand in front of them with sweaty palms and Thank the crafting community for all of their support and say "If it wasn't for you guys I wouldn't be where I am today" along with "I have always loved crafting and creating and sharing my love of art. I thank God and my Family". Then two lovely people walk me off stage...Yes I told you all I have a big imagination and that I am a DREAMER :)

Dreams can come true....(ok I don't believe there is an award ceremony for best crafter or scrapbooker)

Oh I know the feeling tweetey30. I considered it a while back but, I just keeped on doing what I loved and stop trying to dwell on the fact that I'm not the best marketer. It does get a bit sad when you watch other shops (the ones selling the same kind of things) do so well and you can't understand what "you" are doing wrong. It just happens I guess, as long as you keep trying.
Thanks so much of the pat on the back :)

You are most welcome my friend.. Its hard to keep going esp when more people keep telling you, you need to change this or that and you have already changed this or that.

Congratulations on the sales! I will definitely be in the audience clapping as you wipe the sweat from your brow from all the bright lights! :-)
Love your shop too!
