When this year started I had and told you all about dreams I have had for myself and this blog. However, I have been very absent for the last two months. My dreams took a different turn. As I stated in previous posts, I had gotten a job, loved it, and then had to quit because my family needed me during this pandemic. I loved having a job! I enjoyed contributing to my family financially. But, my family needed me a different way.
I still needed something for myself. I missed working. So, one night I was playing on Pinterest and then the Michaels craft store. I ended up ordering some UV Resin jewelry making supplies. I made a few pieces including a birthday gift for my sister. Then my mom suggested that I start selling them. I looked into how and if I could sell them. I discussed this business opportunity with my husband. About a week later, I opened my own Etsy shop.
I have now been open almost two months. With the support of my family and friends, I feel I have had a great start. I currently 62 listing of Necklaces, Earrings, Bracelets, Keychains, and Bookmarks. All made out of resin. I have had 23 sales with four 5-star reviews. I love spending time on my small business everyday and it allows me to be creative. Everyday, I learn and grow and find other ways to improve or add to my business. However, this new business requires me to really balance my life.
I have added a new page to my blog called “Tidbit of Happy Designs”. On this page I have added at least one picture, the price, and a link to that page in my Etsy shop. I would love it if you would check it out. Now that I’ve gotten my business off the ground, I’m trying to add my blog back into my schedule. I love blogging and do not want to give it up. Please feel free to check out my new page and tell me what you think of my inventory.
