Selling myself

This is going to be tough for me but I am determined to spend more time and energy into making new things for my Etsy shop.

I haven't mentioned it to a lot of people but I haven't been working at my old job since December. I knew the time would eventually come but when it did I have to say that I was surprised and really saddened. I worked for the same company for about 7 years. I grew and learned a lot there.

For over 5 of those years I worked for a wonderful man that had a heart of gold. He treated me like I was family. After he suddenly died I found myself working for his wonderful daughter. I was with her until she was forced to sell the business. Which made us all really sad.

Under the new owners I was determined to hang in there and keep the business going the way Ed had intended. But in the end it didn't work out that way.

So I am spending my time and energy trying to create wonderful things to put in my shop to not only keep me busy, but help make up the income we lost. I know that people that are really successful at this type of thing really sell themselves and their products. This is where it gets hard for me. I just don't carry that gene.

So bear with me here and on facebook when I post my new stuff because I will be successful at this.

I hope. (that's my old self talking :)

So go buy some cool stuff. digadig

Don't forget if you're local you can get my necklaces and naugahyde hair clips at Otto in Fullerton.


  1. Dear my fave girl, I need more felt barrettes. Can you put some in ur shop? I love the flower one fin is wearing but flowers don't quite work for the 35 year old or nearly 35 year old.
    Your biggest fan, jennie

  2. will definitely work on it for you. have any specific color combos you are interested in? did i use buttons on the ones you have? can't remember.

  3. I had no idea! I'm sorry that the job has run its course, but Im a tiny bit thrilled that your increased production for Etsy corresponds so beautifully to my having a little girl!

  4. (tears in my eyes!) lots of little girls in my circle of friends, i'll start buying barrettes for birthdays - always the best way to spread the word!
