etsy birthday.


i can't believe that it's already been a full year since i opened my etsy shop! i started off selling leather jewelry and then quickly moved to my custom guestbooks after a few friends suggested that they would be a big hit... and they have been! just in this year, i've made over 100 guestbooks for weddings (and a few birthday parties too!) i can't imagine how many more i would have created if i had been doing this full time...

i wanted to just say thanks to all those friends and family who have supported me and given me their kind words of encouragement. i certainly wouldn't have been able to do all of this without you. especially doug. i can't begin to tell you how many nights were spent running to the store for more bubble wrap or cardstock. or freaking out because something had gone wrong. thanks, babe, for always being there and always believing in me.

selling your handmade product online isn't always easy. if you are thinking about opening an etsy shop, let me know! i would be glad to help out in any way i can and answer any questions.
