World Card Making Day & Etsy FIRST Sales Happiness!

Hello, hello, hello! I'm SOOO happy today.. i came home from work earlier, checked my emails as i usually do to discover i had my FIRST Etsy sale :) i had sold a cowboy print boxy pouch!
then, after dancing round my room with joy, i listed my cupcake needlecase and large red and white polka dot pouch, tweeted about the new listing on twitter and hey presto a minute later it's SOLD! 
I'm so happy, it's really given me the motivation to make more for my Etsy and Folksy shops, because it was getting me down a bit that i've never sold anything until now.. so hopefully now i'm going to be more pro-active and make an array of pretty things to sell :)  

Also it's world card making day today! So i hope you can join in on the spirit of creativity and make someone special a handmade greetings card, everyone love's a handmade card! Here is a birthday card i made recently for my friend Laura's birthday..
Have a great weekend, see you Monday! :)

  7. Hi Jessie,

    Well done on your first etsy sale :-)
    I know what you mean about it getting you down! I have made a few random sales on my paper craft shop, but yet to make one on my sewing/crochet shop...

    Are you signed up to the etsy newsletter things? They have some great tips for increasing publicity and increasing sales - although I have to admit to not reading all of them! lol. one great thing is google base, it puts your listings high up in google searches so means you get more hits, which should increase your sales.

    Hope you had a great weekend :-)
