I was featured yesterday on the Etsy blog for the "Quit Your Day Job" series and have been totally blown away by the response. I cannot tell you how motivating it is to see 185 and counting comments about my piece that say "You inspire me!". I am humbled and inspired myself. It is such a gratifying moment, after all of the hard work, with my friends and family cheering me on in my little basement studio to show everyone that if you want something you can have it if you work hard enough.
And I also want to thank Etsy for being Etsy. I do have aspirations to grow my business beyond Etsy soon, but I could not do what I do without it. To be able to start a business with two children (ages 9 months and 3 at the time) with nothing but a sewing machine, a room in my basement a camera and a computer is pretty amazing and I have Etsy (and coffee) to thank for making that happen.
Now hear this universe (while we are on the topic of dreams-) I WANT TO WRITE A BOOK. Oh, and have it be a smashing success...Book tour outfits are something I day dream about.
Does anybody else have any dreams they want to share?
