So my shop has gotten off to a good start I think. I opened it 10 weeks ago and have made 10 sales and 8 trades, which are almost as exciting to me as sales becuase I get awesome handmade things in return for my stuff =].
There was a trading 'frenzy' last weekend so I made 5 sales in one day and so I was down to 23 items in my shop and I made a sale last night so now I only have 22. Which is much lower than i'd like. So I'm trying hard to focus on filling my shop up.
I have my first craft show the 20something of november. i'm excited but kinda nervous cuase i've never been in one before. What's cool about the show i'm in is it's being put on by my college and they're not charging anything upfront. The only way it'll cost me money to be in the show there is if I make money. If I do make money, I have to give them 10 percent of my earnings. Which kinda stinks cause I'll have to raise prices on items so that I don't lose money when I figure in the college's 10 percent, the fabric, stuffing, thread,etc. but hopefully things will sell anyway.
I had kind of neglected my deviantart for a bit but i'm going to make an attempt to start using it again. I like talking with people on here and seeing other peoples work.
I'm taking 17 credits this semester (at my school 12+ is a full time student, most people take either 12 or 14) so I feel like I've barely had any free time to create lately.
I have to run as I have a class in 15 minutes. Hope you are all doing well =]
