Well I am finally back to sewing again. It feels so good after 7 very stressful years as a German teacher.
I will miss my students. I will miss my fellow teachers. But I will not miss administrators...
This is an old photo of me. I hope to take some new ones and show my current self soon. So stay tuned.
What else is new? I am trying to build up my Etsyshop again. I mean I never stopped making dolls. But didn't have much time as teacher. Some days I barely had time for my family or to eat or breathe. Make sure you are nice to teachers. They work so hard. And get paid so little.
Still I kept my doll shop open. It's been great to finally reach that milestone of 3000 Sales. I am so proud of it. Took me only 15 years. LOL. But Etsy has changed.
The other day I found some advertisement on Instagram for an etsy sales training. It was run by this dude who claimed to have the perfect sales formula. I was intrigued, at first. But then the dude suggested that to be successfull one should copy other folks' stuff. Find Bestsellers and copy them - he says. That's what he did with his decals. Really? I was not impressed.
Maybe I will never get to 14K sales. But I refuse to buy into that concept. I will keep plugging away at my little shop.
I hope you come back and follow my blog. And if you are into Waldorf dolls and handmade toys visit my shop. Come on, you NEED one of my sweet little pocket dolls. Or at a minimum you know somebody who needs one.
And here comes my sales pitch. LOL. This week I am having my 3K sales celebration.
