Etsy Virgin ; )

Well, I decided to give an etsy shop a go the other day. I put a couple of canvasses up but managed to "lose" one of them... i guess i never pressed the final 'save' button. Thought "bugger it, I'll try again tomorrow". So looked again yesterday & found a message to say my lonely little canvas was included in an etsy treasury. You might like to take a peek at 'For the love of chocolate' Ooh, amazement... I'd only been there a few hours!

It doesn't stop there though. First thing this morning I had a mail to say it was sold!! Shock... excitement... what do i do now... I mean, I hadn't even finished writing my shop announcement & stuff (well, barely started actually), so had to have a quick exercise in finding my way around the 'convos' & find out how to do what next! Must admit I'm pleased as punch, especially after having a couple of rejections from shops I've approached in the last couple of weeks.



I've posted a few "chocolate" canvasses over at suzi's scribbles lately. Guess I'll have to get cracking with putting more into my etsy shop of the same name. Hopefully it's a good sign of things to come!

Great news! At last you did it! You've made a shop ;o)
Even better you actually SOLD something....pretty difficult with Etsy not really taking off over here...and not just here....my friend in Canada hasn't had much success either. We need to promote Etsy more in this country.
Really pleased for you xxx
