My First Etsy Sale

I just shipped my first Etsy order.
I had made it a goal to make a few sales quickly after opening the shop and those sales came very quickly, within 1 week from opening.

For a moment it felt just like my old web design team manager job. Every mistake I made could be reflected in my shop's feedback and I felt pressure. I have been making invitations for 9 years it always felt so natural to deal with customers. Where does this strange feeling come from? I will analyze that and share it with you in a future post. But since my computer time is limited with 2 little ones I will just share my positive experience.

The great thing about this first sale is it resulted into a new beautiful design that I immediately fell in love with: Flutter by Baby Shower Invitation.

Well Cathy, selling is not something new. I already know what sells and have quite a portfolio. The thing that feels good is that I set a goal and accomplished it. I am not as disciplined as I would like to be.
