For a long time I've known that I need to have more focus in my crafting (and fashion) style, and especially with my Etsy shop. Does anyone else have this problem??: I like to do all sorts of different things, so I resist the idea of settling into one kind of project (ex: reusable snack bags, purses, children's clothing, ladies tops/dresses) or one type of style (ex: bohemian, prep, punk, etc--but I'm pretty sure now that bohemian is me). But then, I'm all over the place! And in regards to my Etsy shop, I don't want to "limit" myself by narrowing down the type of projects that I do, and as a result I have done nothing in months because I have too many ideas, each "better" than the other, and no "most important" thing that I need to work on first. So, I get NOWHERE!
So, really, I need help. I need input. I need opinions on which kind of things I should do primarily (for my Etsy shop). It doesn't help a ton to look at my sales and see where the best seller is, because I haven't done a lot of sales and they're also all over the place (because my product line is!). I just don't know... Should I focus on children's clothing and accessories? Pillowcase dresses and matching purses are awesome, easy, and adorable. But ladies tops, with ruffles and flowers, are really huge right now and they're fun, too. (I don't think purses/bags are my thing, because they require too much time and special materials that aren't readily available to me at a reasonable price.) I've been doing flowers a lot lately, but I think that market is totally saturated and I don't really enjoy that anyway, not like I enjoy real sewing.
Anyway, I'm certainly not expecting anybody to take lots of time to analyze my blog, but I really have to get my focus figured out, or I might as well stop renewing my Etsy listings and just clean my house!
Thanks SO MUCH for any input! I really value your help.www.aquietlittlelife.blogspot.com
BTW, if you do feel like helping this misdirected girl out, "sewing" under LABELS on the right is a good one to click on to get a feel for the things I create. TIA!
