I had two sales this week on Etsy! TWO! My dear former co-worker order something for her daughter who is ZouZou’s age and I was just SOOOOO happy, not only to have my first order out of the way, but also because I was nervous about figuring out the shipping for the first time and felt relieved to send my first package to a friend. Yay.
But then tonight out of the blue the most MIRACULOUS thing happened. I sold a doll! To a complete stranger! I can’t tell you how excited I was to have such a huge moment of validation. Someone — a stranger, no less — invested $72.50 in me. I have been getting some views on my things, but I have been focusing more on making some changes to my shop than on building my Etsy presence, so I just didn’t know if anyone would purchase from me yet. But they did! And in less than two weeks. A-mazing.
Can you tell I’m a bit excited? Thanks for letting me share! And here she is…all sold out.
