Another try - and a give away!

Hello you! What do you do when at first you don't succeed? That's right! Try again.

 
I tried to sell my handmade items via Etsy in 2011. I put up two very simple crocheted scarves, which nobody ever bought and I ended up gifting to my family. I decided selling my own handmade items was not for me. ...But now - three years later - I have changed my mind!
 
I'm going to give it another try. And we'll see what happens! (of course, I am secretely hoping that one of my items will be noticed) No crocheted scarves this time, I'm trying something different! A sneak preview?
  
 
Click here to visit my Etsy shop! I'll be putting items up for sale this week! And to celebrate, I'm having a give away!
 
I will giving away a $25 Etsy Gift Card! It'll run for two weeks and all you have to do is comment on this post. Of course, a bit of advice or 'item love' on Etsy would be welcome but that's no must! March 22nd I'll randomly pick a winner.
 
I'm very excited!
 
Have a lovely week!

  2. Kawaii ^°^! Love how you made kawaii eyes with felt and stitching. Good luck, Mama! I admire how you put yourself out there and got back up on that horse. I need to take a page from your book.
