How a Sale Can Rejuvinate

When I decided to take my crafting and creating to the next level (i.e. from hobby to business), I knew that 'success' wouldn't happen overnight. I also knew I wasn't going into it for the money. I felt and knit and create because I love to do it. However, there is something wonderful about opening up your e-mail and finding that you have made a sale.

Most of my sales occur through word of mouth and also through a local craft consignment shop. So much so, that I have debated whether or not to keep my energy focused on on-line avenues. I have an Etsy site, an artfire site, and my own personal website.

Well, yesterday, I opened up my e-mail, and there it was, my first order through artfire! I was so excited! So, for now, I will keep all my avenues open. The more exposure the better!

If you have a website that you'd like me to link to on any of my sites, just let me know and I'll be happy to help you out!
