I made Three Sales on Etsy!

I know, I know some of you are probably like SO WHAT, BIG DEAL, HOE- HUM, WHATEVA. I still have to shout that I've finally sold something on etsy. I've been posting stuff up there for about 10 months, and no go. Then suddenly, I went to visit my site and noticed that I had sold three earrings the day prior. Yeah, the day prior. I didn't even know.

Here's what I attribute my sales to:

1) You wonderful people who have entered my giveaway and have given me a useful critique! I really appreciate it! I have taken your advice and have made most of those changes.

2) The seller had in the note line on paypal Afrobella. Afrobella! She's a famous blogger that many of you may know. She added me as a favorite link on her page, and I guess the buyer came from her site to mine. I really appreciate that! It helped me sooo much! I feel humbled to even be noticed by her. Thanks Afrobella for the acknowledgement!

3) Positive Thinking! I really believed I could and I put my mind to it. I stopped complaining and I put my mind an energy to selling in this arena.

Last night while watching, laughing at and IMing about the The Real Witches Housewives of Atlanta. I posted new items on etsy. I am committed to adding a little bit everyday to get noticed.

Here are my new pieces.

Congratulations on your first etsy sales and to Afrobella no less! Great hook-up there. I wish you continued success.

Wow, I know the feeling! When you put so much into your craft and then you post it and wait for someone to notice. If you're like me , you start to wonder "why is no one buying?" Then out of the blue, you make your first sale and it validates all of your hard work! Keep doing your thing. Your jewelry is excellent!!!

Oops! I guess it did look like I was saying I sold to Afrobella, but I don't think it was her. The buyer I think saw me on Afrobella, but I am not sure if it was her or not.

Congratulations! Just keep listing, the Etsy market conundrum is fickle but when it takes off you're in for some fun! I also find that sales encourage and motivate me to create. Sitting about watching my inventory gather dust does not make for happy creative times 'round here! Woo hoo!
