I am completely blown away. My last blog post about my Etsy shop was in early October. At that time I had a total of 29 Etsy sales. My sales goal by the end of the year was 50… Fast forward to 11/26/2017 and I have 70! I can’t believe it! This month has been insane. ‘Tis the season! I’ve had 26 Etsy sales in November alone and the month isn’t even over yet. 4 of those sales even happened on Small Business Saturday!
I’ve gotten so busy that I’ve decided to close my shop mid-December so I can enjoy the holidays, focus on school, and focus on my career obligations. My initial plan was to reopen on New Year’s day, but with everything that is going on at work (a huge training initiative) I might postpone it a while longer.
I put countless hours of labor and love into my little side hustle. I honestly don’t even make a huge profit to justify everything that I put into it. But I continue to do it because it’s so fulfilling to have complete creative freedom and also seeing how happy my guests are. It’s so cool to connect with my guests via Instagram nationwide and cultivate new Disney friendships! My heart is filled with love and gratitude.
