Marketing and Inspiration
Today I'm inspired to market myself! I love reading the thoughts and information that Shannon Riffe of Rifferaff puts on her blog and shares with fellow Etsians. She's successful. She's intelligent. And I want others to be able to look at my shop and say the same about me, knowing that they can come to me for help in making their shops more successful!
At Valentines 2009 one of my nieces needed a card for her fellow. She didn't want a mushy stuff card. She didn't want a sexually suggestive card. Just something she could write a little note in. When I heard about her situation I decided to create a card for her. She loved it! And so did everyone else that saw it. So it started me thinking and I decided to start designing cards to see if others really were interested in my designs.
So that's it. My sincere desire to help my niece has led me to create an Etsy shop and now my own blog!
