I don't know about you, but I could sell sand to the Arabs if it belonged to someone else....... but I am absolutely useless when it comes to promoting my own creations.
Well no more - there is no point in me keep making things if I'm not brave enough to sell them. I don't know what it is that stops me.... Perhaps a real lack of self-confidence, and a fear that no-one will like what I make? Probably. However - I've received enough lovely compliments of late, that I'm really going to try hard in the future.
I've listed several items today -
|Bygone Era Needle Case|
|Bless his cottons socks - needle case|
|A Stitch in time Needle Case|
|Buttons with Bows|
|Shabby Chic button|
|Floral embroidered button|
|Loveheart embroidered button|
I was absolutely staggered! I listed my first item - this dinky little envelope shaped needle case,
As soon as I had listed it to Folksy, I grabbed the link and posted it to Twitter. It sold within a minute.
For once in my life I was lost for words. So all in all not a bad day! My very first Folksy sale in supersonic time, and finally I think I've found the confidence to go forward with my designs.
Can't sit around here chatting all afternoon..... best get making some more. (Oh, it would be nice, but sadly the reality of dog feeding, followed by hubby feeding take precedent).
