I am so with you on that rami :< I'm terrified of putting anything I make out into the world because I think it'll never be good enough for someone to actually BUY. However, at least you STARTED an etsy store  Cheesy I'm still in the "scared shitless" stage of MAKING stuff for my store so FEEL PROUD you took the first step!!

   But really, all it takes is ONE sale and you're hooked Smiley Hope is like an addiction; You keep looking for more wherever you go!

I wish you all the best luck in finding your Groove with the craft fairs and etsy selling ^^ it's a fantastic and useful idea!

You know I have been doing this going on 2 year (December 12) and I still get silly over people WANTING to buy my stuff.  When I hear others say something like, "I just love your coasters." and then buy some, I think, "really, you like my stuff?"

It remindes me of when Sally Fields won an Oscar for a movie many years ago and in her acceptance speech, she said, "You love me, you really, really love me." And she was just gushing.  That is ME when someone compliments my work or buys something!  LOL LOL

I like my stuff .... or else I would not make it.  But it's freakin' reeeediculous that someone else would too.  <vbg>

God Bless,

Given enough coffee, I could rule the world!

I could tell you to just go ahead and open a store, but I had heard that before a lot too, and never could get myself to doing it.  But I am happy now that it's up.  It's still going to be a lot of work, possibly more work than I even imagined, but at least I finally tried it.  Thanks for the well wishes, I hope you find the courage to open a store!! And if you do, show me, I'd love to take a look
